View Full Version : ISOs won't play?

02-06-2013, 01:06 PM
Brought some DVD ISOs into the Mezzmo library.
Went to play one on the SONY Bravia and it displayed "Video file cannot be played".
In the library, did right-click Properties, Gapless Multi-File tab. All five vob entries each showed 0 duration.
Right-click FFmpeg Info, showed the info at the end of this post.
When I mount the ISO in the file system (Virtual CloneDrive), the movie plays just fine.

What could be wrong?

Sounds like you are trying to play one of the videos that was in the previous folder that you renamed. The ISO files from the previous folder were added but I guess you could not find them in your Mezzmo library. Since you then renamed the folder, Mezzmo can no longer access these files. Try this:

In the Mezzmo tree, go to Videos and expand File Type. Locate the VOB file type and delete all VOB files listed from your Mezzmo library.
Add the ISO folder/files back into Mezzmo. You should see them listed under the VOB file type or the Recently Added playlist under Videos. Press F5 to refresh the list if you don't see them yet. Try streaming again.

(BTW: We just tried adding ISOs from folders with spaces and it is working fine. I guess you could not locate the newly added files. Next time, click on the Recently Added playlist under Videos and that will show you the last 50 added files.)

Paul, I agree with your assessment. After the churn in my library settled, playing ISOs is not a problem.

Glad it is all working for you now :)
