@StuntmanMike Streaming is only available in the 3.3.0 release candidates and requires a Nextcloud 14 server!
@Gatak I tried it with some sample videos (different formats) and mp3 and it is working fine for me.
Can you maybe share me a dummy video which is not working for you (tobias at nextcloud dot com)
I used the sample video (Nextcloud.mp4)from the default installation, seen in the screenshot. Haven’t tried mp3s yet .
Hello same problem here, using NC 14 and Android app 3.3.0 RC3 from gplay. Not seeing VLC in stream with list and cannot watch movie with embedded player neither ( works with old Owncloud app )
Could it be related to the fact that we did enable file encryption ?
The issue is solved for me. I had to remove defaults set for the Opera browser.
How long are the streaming links available? Files can stop playing if I seek or copy the URL to another app.
Link is valid 24h.
We are checking for mimetype starting with “video/” or “audio/” and NC14, then a streaming option will be shown.
I do not know why VLC is not shown as app, we are doing this the regular android way, with an Intent and ACTION_VIEW.
Intent openFileWithIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); Uri uri = Uri.parse((String) result.getData().get(0)); openFileWithIntent.setDataAndType(uri, file.getMimeType()); mFileActivity.startActivity(Intent.createChooser(openFileWithIntent, mFileActivity.getString(R.string.stream)));
3.3.0 final has been released, for any further issues you might find, please open an issue in the tracker @ https://github.com/nextcloud/android/issues
