    Mpeg files are being streamed, but not .mov files for some reason. However, I cannot get the movies to play anywhere but in the album art window, even though I have “full screen” or “in main window” playback selected as a preference.

    the tag parsing isn’t smart enough yet for .mov files. Working on it.

    fullscreen won’t work unless you have the pro version of quicktime. That’s an iTunes issue anyway.

    Ah, then it’s because has_video isn’t set in the database. You could fix it in the database:


    sqlite /path/to/songs.db
    sqlite> update songs set has_video=1 where fname like '%.mov'
    sqlite> .quit

    If it’s marked as being a video track, then it plays fullscreen, etc. Not sure why, since iTunes clearly recognizes it as video. Again, though, it’s fundamentally because of bad parsing. Should use a shared parser for m4a, m4p, alac, m4v, and mov.

    That’s tiket 68 on trac. http://trac.mt-daapd.org

    Sadly, no. 0.2.4 doesn’t understand or have those metacodes.

    If you wanted to be able to search by video, or any of the neat iTunes 6.0.4, you’ll need nightlies.
