Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? : Y
Steps to replicate it:
Having a video in a folder
Share via a link the folder
Try to stream the video with the in-built video player
The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:
I’m on 18.0.3, and it’s working. I use it everyday for the school since the confinement. I have a public folder, shared with a link, with few videos for the other parents, from the teacher. And videos stream normally.
