View Full Version : XMBC: Playback failed for every file type. What last tweak am I missing?

Aug 2, 2011, 01:16 AM
I ran Seas0nPass and then installed XMBC (thus bypassing the need to buy aTV Flash) on my ATV 2. I finally set up the SMB folders but when I try to play ANY file type (avi, m4v, mkv, h264) I get the same error message: Playback Failed One or more items failed to play.

Anyone know a final tweak to get XMBC playing files?

i'm assuming you have your files on some sort of nas. Have you setup a specific userid for the appletv2 to log into your nas? if not you need to enable guest account access on the nas side to your content.

are you running lion?

if so, smb playback does not work.
