View Full Version : Boxee not finding my media files on mounted filesystem after initial connection

November 3rd, 2008, 10:06 AM

I'm running the 10/25 version Boxee on an iMac running MacOS 10.5.5.

Most of my media files reside on a NAS which I NFS mount on my Mac
when it boots, so I am thinking as far as boxee is concerned, these are local files. The NAS box has several terrabytes of disk space, and the native filesystem on that box is ZFS.

When running Boxee initially, I manually added the locations of these directories for various media types (music, videos).

These directories have a large number of files, over 100 Gb of music, and about 600 Gb of videos.

Right after the initial configuration of these directories, it seemed like Boxee was cataloging all this media, and as time past, more and more the media files were browsable.

But later, after restarting boxee, it doesn't seem to know about any of the videos, but it does seem to know about all or most all of the music.

When I browse to the Videos section of Boxee, it just shows a grey screen.

I checked the Settings, Local Sources, and it shows the defined directory, and claims it is connected, but no Videos. Almost all the videos in this directory tree are video_ts folders of DVDs.

Any ideas of what I can do to get Boxee to be able to see these video files?

try erasing you library:
settings > general > erase library

then letting boxee run for a while, say overnight.
