There is an update in the works. already in svn, build (both qorbiter AND linuxmce web admin) should be rolling out soon that should deal with this issue. Been lots of work on the issue as you can see in the timeline http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac/timeline
There are some other things to note:
-qMediaPlayer is limited by the capabilities of your platform. What that means is, of you are on a mobile device, there are a lot of videos that just wont play due to codec issues. After spending a lot of time tearing my hair out over the last month or so, this is what ive found.
-Most MP3's play. Certain very high bitrate mp3's dont.
-Flac, OGG may work on Android, wont on ios
-Streaming audio seems to work fine.
-Specific requirements on both ios and android
-.xh264 video codec
-aac audio encoding
-Bitrate / resolution limitations. A dvd quality file will play. a blu-ray quality file with struggle
Thank you for your patience.
