Launch BSPlayer from App
I'm running BSPlayer on a HP Slate 21 Tablet and it works fine.
Now I developed an app which searches my movie database. On the selection of a movie I'd like to launch BSPlayer with the chosen movie. The movie is on a SMB-Share (My Book Live).

What I tried so far is:


            Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
            intent.setDataAndType(Uri.parse(url), "video/*");

For the url I tried something like "smb://host/share/movie.mp4" but this is not working.

Has anyone tried this. Or can People from BSPlayer give me a hint? Any suggestions highly welcome! Thanks.

Without password it should work. We will test it.

There is no password on the smb share.
The problem is that android does not seem to accept an url starting with 'smb://' (android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: No Activity found to handle Intent).

Is there any way to call BSPlayer directly with package name and parameters in the intent? That would probably be the trick. But I have no idea what to fill into the intent.

Will be fixed in next version.

URL format should be "smb://host/share/movie.mp4"
Also acceptable is "smb://user:password@host/share/movie.mp4"
If password is required, you must first add host in BSPlayer, then play passworded file.

Wow! It works on the free version now. When does the Pro Version follow?
Thanks for helping.
