MythWeb Question
« on: August 21, 2007, 02:57:18 am »
so this is weird.

When I go to Recorded Programs, where you are suppose to be able to click on them and download them it errors with "Firefox doesnt know what to do with myth:// protocol"

I noticed that when resting my mouse over the link to download it, its the local address (ie. myth://127.0.0.1:6543/moviehting.mpg). However when I connect to it local, via a computer on the same network with the hostname(in this case http://mythbox:8081) the link is correct: http://mythbox:8081/moviething.mpg.

I am confused because also it only does this on windows machines. My kubuntu 7.04 laptop with konqueror and firefox, have the correct path for downloading the recorded programs.

I tried manually setting the servers name that apears to the outside world in the apache2.conf file with ServerName tag.

Any help would be greatly appricated. WOuld like this to work especialy for my friends who still use windows..ha.

Basically,

Windows is using relative paths. Kubuntu is using absolute paths.

Is there a way to force absolute paths in apache2?
