    Hi, I’ve been messing with SilverPlay for a couple hours trying to get it to work, repeatedly getting a pop-up window just like wwaren:

    I get the main page structure, but then an error pops up. Any idea what this error means? “[Async_ExceptionOccurred] Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient”.
    The suggestion from the readme to check connectivity using http://yourserver:3689/server-info?output=xml yields positive results.

    I enabled debug mode and I noticed this:

    Connect to:http://localhost:3689//server-info?output=xmlx

    there’s double “/” before “server-info”. What can I change to make it look for: http://localhost:3689/server-info?output=xmlx instead?
    Thanks, Erik



    Assuming you are running it on an IIS server 🙂
    I uploaded a XAP file onto my webserver.
    Can you download that and replace the one in your current installation with the one on the webserver?
    It is located in the ClientBin directory where you installed SilverPlay.



    I’m actually running Silverplay on Freenas(Freebsd) running lighttpd. I downloaded the XAP file and replaced my XAP file (which was actually larger @ 1,098KB vs. 936KB). It fixed the “//” issue, but I’m still getting the same errors. I get a box that pops up with the following message:

       at System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs.RaiseExceptionIfNecessary()
    at System.Net.DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs.get_Result()
    at FireFlyConnector.FireflyConnector.ConnectedResponseCompleted(Object sender, DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs e)

    and in the debug window, I get the error:

    ConnectedResponseCompleted Exception: [Async_ExceptionOccurred]

    I’m able to get output when visiting http://firefly_server_ip:3689/server-info?output=xmlx and I’m pretty sure the parameters are correct:

    Any other Ideas?



    Is your firefly library available from the internet?
    If that is the case I could try to debug it from here. Seems a little wired.
    Unfortunately did the Admin disable private messaging on the board. But you can contact me on [email protected] if that would be a solution for you?

    But one more test before that we do that. Did you place the clientaccesspolicy.xml file in the root of your webapp.
    In linux you might have to rename that to lowercase as it’s case sensitive.




    Hi all

    I have a netgear Readynas duo, running their packaged firefly -mt-daapd, svn-1676. Itunes clients work quite nicely off it. I’d like SilverPlay working too.

    But, when I run
    I get a 404 not found.

    when I run
    http://readynasip/server-info?output=xmlx I get the below:


    The thing is, I cant get SilverPlay or FlashPlay to work. The readynas directory structure is somewhat different to that I’ve seen previously on a NSLU2, but I think I have the firely and silverlight files in the right place.

    But back to Silverlight: ALL the silverlight files I have dropped into the webroot folder (/c/webroot). All I then get is 404 not found. Is it possible I havent set the permissions right, or even that the readynas’s firefly package just wont ever work with such plug-ins? how can I tell if it handles the right Roku protocols etc? I cant see that in the output above. I had no real issues on the NSLU2 but this has stumped me!

    thanks in advance




    Can someone please post a mirror to the file. The link:

    Is not working anymore.

    Thank you.
