Ushare and XboX
« on: December 11, 2012, 07:40:09 pm »
I would like to know if it's just me or what!
I have all my music/audiobook and video files networked to my XboX using Ushare and wanted to know if anyone else is having the same problem as me...
When browsing through the music library and selecting, e.g. 'Albums' it shows ALL music and not in album view.
Is it just me, what am I doing or NOT DOING to get them to show in the correct way.
All my music has metadata, as Mark well knows as he recommended some programs to fix my music metadata, so thats that one fixed.
I have been on the XboX forum and asked if anyone could help me but they’re pointing the finger at Ushare (it's ALWAYS some other program)
Anyone got any ideas?

They're kinda right, what's the contents of your ushare.conf file ?

Has it ever worked the way you expect ?

I don't think Ushare (or anything else for that matter) is supposed to be (or can be) 100% compatible with Microsofts non standards based protocol.

I'll check tomorrow and let you know but the fact that it's a micro soft product tells you everything you need to know.
Personally I stream to my TV's and mobile devices.
If you need help ask a professional, then act upon their advice.
Anything less and you're just wasting peoples time.

Here's the thing .. unless Microsoft start using industry standards nobody else is going to create software that is 100% compatible.

They don't release the code so people can see how it works, so without decompiling their software (illegal, and from what I gather inaccurate) and attempting to work it out, then creating something that doesn't duplicate any of their code (which you'd not be 100% sure of), or breach any software patents, it would be a massive task that in the end may put you at risk of being sued out of existence.

So nobody can be bothered .. it works "well enough".

For 100% compatibility with anything Microsoft, there is only one route open to you .. pay Microsoft .. that's the way Microsoft like it.

And theres NO chance of that, more chance of the 2012 Mayan prophecy (Well, miss-read alleged prophecy)coming true! lol
