    What file type was the movie you tried? mp4, mkv, something else?

    Is this happening on ever movie you try?
    I've tried to play an .avi and a .mkv in the attached logs.

    Thanks for checking it out!

    With thanks to Martin ... you can create logs for nlite.exe itself with "nlite 1>1-log.txt 2>2-log.txt" which will redirect the lines from the console window (command prompt window) to files.

    I'm just not able to make this work... I get the main NPVR screen which I can navigate but when I select a recording from the recordings screen when I select Play, it just stays on that screen. I press escape once and I can't navigate that screen, a second press of escape will then allow me to navigate again. It's a bit like it's "playing" but that that screen is not then displayed. (A single "esc" would Stop, another "esc" would then return me to the menu.) Logs attached. Also is this something I could run on my Pi? I much prefer to have the native NPVR than Kodi.

    Do you have 3.9.2 installed? I know you could get this behaviour with previous version of NextPVR, and the look of a URL in those logs makes me think that's the case for you.

    You can compile and run it in Linux, but the VLC based player is not well suited to use on a slower RPi type device. Fred was working on a similiar type of client, but using omxplayer instead of VLC, which is really what you need on a RPi.

    The webserver, which is responsible for streaming to nlite, can't access the share you're trying to play the file from:

    2016-11-26 10:53:57.273 [DEBUG][19] File cannot be found: \\Bevtoms\l\Movies-TV-Downloads\Movies\A History of Violence (2005)\A History of Violence.avi
    ie, you'd find the Movies plugin is working if you try streaming from a local file, or fix the share permissions.

    Interesting. I installed nlite on the system which runs NextPVR and Movies without issue, and saw the same error, share cannot be accessed.

    Remember, when you run NextPVR.exe under your desktop session, it's running as you. When you access it via nlite, it's talking to the recording service, which runs as a different user account ("localsystem"). In this case, you'll find the localsystem account is unable to access your network share.

    Even after nlite is ready for full htpc use I don't anticipate a significant performance difference with Kodi and x-newa web client, when you have pvr.nextpvr disabled. The advantage to Kodi comes primarily from having remote and keyboard support CEC integration audio and video configuration etc, plus the advantages of Librelec making the install pretty straight forward.

    lost@c: Just in case you don't already know it, when you use x-newa in web client mode, you get the exact same NPVR user interface. You can even configure Kodi to go directly into the x-newa web client when you start it up if you want. And, as Martin says, the Librelec installation does make it quite easy to setup and configure. I use this setup on an RPi 3 client as my primary media source multiple hours every day, and it really does work quite well.

    "Uncle". Gave every permission under the sun and still could give the Nextpvr machine's localsystem access to the shared drive. (Win7 32bit Home Premium both machines). Another thing I noticed is that navigation in Movies is very slow, and often you can have a particular movie highlighted, when the previous selections info is displayed... see attached. I have ~ 600 movies FWIW. Everything else in nlite is instant fast.
