mcfly Posted October 10, 2006 Report Share Posted October 10, 2006 Setup : downloading video files via uTorrent to a 'share' folder on my PC which is connected, via Dlink router, to an XBMC Xbox in another room. I have uTorrent pre-allocating the space on my PC, moving the file from one folder to another once it's finished downloading.Problem : video file finishes downloading and appears correctly on my XBMC (file name and size are as expected). However when attempting to view the video on the Xbox nothing happens. XBMC pauses for a split second then does nothing. It does not crash, as I can continue to browse other files.Work-around solution : walk to my PC, stop the torrent from seeding, move the offending file to another folder, move it BACK to the share folder, return to the XBMC and now the video file plays just fine. No pause, no glitches, no problem.Rebooting the PC does not fix the problem, nor does 'touch.exe'ing it. Moving the file(s) back/forth appears to be the only solution, and it doesn't even need to be to another physical drive. Bouncing it to a sub-folder does the trick.Sort of defeats the purpose of having a shared network if I have to walk back/forth to my PC every time I want to watch a video......help?!?thanks!McFly Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
