Hey first time posting on this forum. i'm having a problem playing videos from my raspberry pi running Raspbian and v5.1.5200 of Madsonic. When I click on any video any file type the player does not load all i get is a black box

I did notice there was a warning saying no transcoder found, but audio works and I have ffmpeg installed so idk what to do about that.

any help would be appreciated.


got the black box fixed (the video player was set to chromecast) now its giving me an error in the player saying "error loading media: file could not be played" all my transcoding settings should be good so i have no clue what it could be

I have the exact same issue, was wondering if there was a solution to this? My audio plays fine, it's just Video files. I have tried to turn the DLNA on, and play the files through that as well. The files DO play when I mount the Samba share my media is stored on, so I do know the video files work.

I juts thought of this, and can't edit my post, but....I thought it might have been the non-Oracle Java that was causing the problem, but it's not playing now that I have switched that either...
