  • Chris Gray - A super small file server

    Hi guys,

    Has anybody tried accessing a remote media file shared by a WinCE file server from a WinCE client?
    I have 2 CEPCs setup with Windows CE 5.0, BSP: CEPC x86.

    I have a media file (chicken.wmv) located in a WinCE server
    Media Player pops up the error message:

    Cannot open '\\fileserver\media\chicken.wmv'. (0x8007000e)

    Here are some scenarios that work fine:

    - WinXP client accesses remote media file (chicken.wmv).
    - WinCE client accesses remote documents like Word or PDF files.
    - WinCE client plays the media file (chicken.wmv) stored in local
    directory (\temp).
    - WinCE client accesses the remote media file via HTTP

    The error only happens when I access a media file in a remote
    WinCE file server directory from WinCE client.

    I am aware that Media Player uses DirectShow.
    Could this be a DirectShow issue when it tries to render a remote
    source file?
    Has anyone found a solution or a workaround to this issue?
