So, I stumbled onto a solution to this problem, but I can’t figure out why it works. What I did was to create an ssh tunnel on the iTunes port to the daapd server. It worked. I have no clue why, but it worked flawlessly. The only bug is that the viewing window disappears when I try to change to fullscreen view. Any solution for that? If not, then its a minor convenience that I’m willing to live with. After all: I achieved AppleTV functionality (and then some) for $20 in cables. 😉
Do you have quicktime pro? I thought you could only get fullscreen when you do quicktime pro. Also, I have *no* idea why the streaming video wouldn’t work, unless they added local network checks in the client portion. I know the server won’t serve to clients on remote networks, but maybe they have made the client not work against remote servers either.
That would suck.
