Can't make AndSMB to view files on SMB share

Postby eigenwys » Fri Jul 13, 2012 8:42 pm

Hi,

I seem to be missing something and I hope someone can offer me some help.

I use AndSMB to connect to the share on my webcam server. Motion software stores images on the disk, AndSMB connects to the same share and shows me all the images that have been recorded.

It should be possible to long press a image and then choose "view" from the menu I've been told by Chris. However, the only thing happening when pressing (long or short) is that the file is being "checked" or "unchecked". If I use the menu button on the tablet I have options to sort, delete, create folder but nothing like file viewing.

That was on a tablet running Android 2.3.2

Today I received another tablet (Sony P) with Android 4.02 (for use at work) so I decided to install AndSMB on this tablet also. However, results are the same. The share can be viewed, files can be copied but long pressing does not give any other results.

I would like to be able to view the images on the share rather than copying them to SD and view them with other software.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ben

You have to download file to view it. Select file as you did, click download, then click local browser and select downloaded file to view it.

actually version 1.9.3 release notes state: "- Open remote file support added."
but it still does not work. you still have to download the file in order for you to view it.

Yes, it downloads it but automatically. Real streaming is more complex especially to communicate with the apps able to handle the stream.

Temp folder is under SDCARD in Android/lysesoft.andsmb/cache folder.
- It is deleted every week if no file are downloaded.
- It is deleted automatically on AndSMB uninstall
- You can clean cache when you want in Menu ->Options->Advanced->Reset->Cache only
