Playing iTunes on remote player
#1
Dean - So I am finally getting back to expanding the system. Here is the setup;
1. Master server with iTunes repository via the Tray app on the same machine.
2. Remote PC called AV1 with mulitple sound cards that feed the four sources on my distribution matrix amp and running the CQSL Player.

Here is the issue; I select a track from the GUI (media is set to use the itunes repo with the player called AV_Play1 on the AV pc). Dynamic selection will come later, but I get the following error. The music will not queue. Should it? Maybe I need to use a different player/renderer

Code:
11/18 18:02:07-AV1, CQCServer, WMPAudioPlayerThread_1
{
    CQCMedia, CQCMedia_WMPAudioPlayer.cpp.1067, Failed/Cannot Do, Error: 5910/0/0

You are trying to play MP4 files using the DirectShow engine on the audio player. If you want to play unprotected MP4 files only, you can generally find DirectShow filters you can install to allow that to work. If you want to play protected MP4 files you'll have to install iTunes on that machine where the player is running, authorize the machine for iTunes, and install the CQSL player with the QuickTime engine selected.

Make sure that the CQC service is running in a regular administrative account on the system where the players are running, else they won't be able to access the files on the remote machine.

You are also exposing the files via C:\whatever paths in iTunes, so they will only work on the same machine where iTunes is running. You will need to set up iTunes to look at the files via a shared directory, then the players will see them via that shared directory and can get to them.

Ah - The directory must be the issue. The /music folder on the server is shared, but the remote needs to have the link. I will keep pushing forward and report back.

Another thought - iTunes is running on the server, not the remote. The Music directory is on the server and the tray app is running on the server. Does any of that need to be running on the remote?

You need to have the path to the actual media files showing up as via the shared directory. So, if you look at the properties of a track, the path to the file should be via the shared directory because the drivers have to go to get the media files directly themselves and stream it.

All the tray monitor is doing is providing metadata, it's not involved in the media files themselves.

Great - Thanks. I will check that all out. I determined through this process that I am having issues with my Router. I need to get that resolved first, which probably will help the music situation.

Dean - iTunes is working on the remote AV1 machine. The player is configured to utilize QT. The music file path for all tracks is:

\\giga\music\jimmy buffet\bufett hotel\ a lot to drink about.m4a

I am getting the following error from the player on AV1:

Do I need to make a local directory share on the AV1 machine??
