Does anyone have experience streaming video with #vlc? We're trying to set up a movie night and we keep getting "input can't be opened" errors. (Guides say this is a firewall issue, but I'm pretty sure I gave that permission on the streaming end?)
and Dropbox so we could watch them with Syncplay, which worked fine but took a lot of upload and download time, so I'm still interested in VLC to VLC streaming if it's quicker.
@DialMforMara The same or different networks?
What are you referring to when you say "network"? This happened both with two VLC instances on the same computer, and two instances on computers in different countries.
@DialMforMara I answered my own question. People are all over :) I'll see what I can find/reproduce
@DialMforMara I was playing with VLC and wasn't able to reproduce the problem, and the googles aren't much help without getting more details :(
