I’m open to suggestions. I’m looking for something that will work with Front Row on mac. I’ve got several macs that I want to have access to the server.

It is indeed copying and playing. Not sure why though. Some files it seems to stream, others it seems to copy. I’m obviously not sending the metadata it wants, but I’m not sure why.

Clearly I need to check the metadata itunes sends more closely.

Yeah, as a work around I am just pointing frontrow to the shared drive (alias in my movies folder) and it works with the exception of the metadata.

Do you know how to get frontrow to display the cover and description of the movie files?

Hrm… should Just Work.

If it doens’t, I don’t know how to make it. 🙂

Well, that’s assuming there is metadata and cover info embeeded in the file, that is.
