Hi,

Yeah no problem.

It's a standard Mac connection dialogue box for permissions rather a 'dialogue log' type of thing.



Clicking any of the radio buttons gives same result - no launch of application.

Previously I've had a trouble-free experience with Air Video, in earlier versions same connection dialogue box would initiate launch and server would appear in my top tab bar alongside the date and time etc.

I'm not using Snow Leopard, just regular Leopard.

cheers

Here's same screenshot but 'details' are expanded to show IP and DNS it's attempting to reach.



I'm not using any firewall settings for Air Video that wouldn't allow connection.

IT doesn't really seem like OS X Firewall dialog. For one, OS X Firewall only blocks incomming connections. Also Air Video Server has signed binary, so unless the firewall is on very restrictive settings it should let Air Video Server handle all connections without any confirmation.

This looks more like little snitch network filter or something similar.

This (for me anyway) is exactly how it behaved in previous releases.
I never let any application have a 'forever' connection, and so the application asks 'permission' from me to access it's required connections - that's I imagine, fairly standard user behavior, and not that unusual?
leaves me wondering what is specific to this release that doesn't initiate the server application that yesterday using the earlier version did?
There are no Little Snitch 'rules' in place to deny access to Air Video now or in the past.

The downloaded .dmg process went fine, the application installed OK and didn't give me any alert so say it needed a system restart or anything like that, needless to say, I have tried a complete restart and the connection still fails to initiate the server.

I suppose I can run Air Video back to a previous version for now, but I'd be interested in seeing whether any other Mac Users have similar issues with this new version.
I think to be fair, then we'll see if considering it a 'mac thing' or a 'little snitch' connection rule will be proved right or wrong.
I'm just very surprised that an update no longer runs on a system that hasn't changed?

Thanks anyway.

Well, Air Video Server communicates with inmethod.com for two reasons.
One is to check for updates.
Second is to talk to our tracker service (if you have remote access enabled) or remove all data from tracker service (if you have remote access disabled).

As for whether that's standard user behavior, I really doubt most users are blocking outgoing connections (which requires separate software). However I don't think there's anything wrong about it.

You definitely shouldn't need to restart computer after Air Video Server reinstall.

Anyway, this shouldn't result in Air Video Server not being able to start. Is there anything printed to console when you try to run it?

You can open the Console application, run Air Video Server and send me the new output in console if there is any.

No problem, appreciate the efforts afforded in your assistance.

Here is console log when opening 2.2 for OS X - and server initiation fails:





While here is console log when opening 2.1.7 for OS X - application works perfectly:

Looks to me that 2.2 utilities the Java Framework that 2.17 didn't?
Without the correct Java version it is looking for, you get the fail I guess.

I'm currently updating system to include the latest version and will re-try 2.2.

No luck,

I've installed the Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 6 (from installed 5).
I'm not sure where it installs to, but it still isn't in the System/Library/Frameworks route that Air Video 2.2 is looking for?

Barking up the wrong tree?!

Sorry this so long winded ...

Hi,

it shouldn't be related to Java. I will take a look at the stacktrace that you posted (is there any chance that you can copy it as text from console and paste here again)?

Thanks for the patience.

Here you go, the library file it first looks for I don't have under that route:

That works perfectly.

Tested with a subtitled movie - wonderful!

I installed the updates and it works great with my subtitled movie files. Just wondering, what's the "30" button beside the pause button is for, and how do I enable Audio Boost? Thanks.

The 30 button should rewind the movie approximately 30 seconds backwards. It's a feature of iPhone media player, we don't have direct control over it.
Audio boost can be set in conversion settings for each movie.
