Use YAMJ as a windows jukebox

Use YAMJ as a windows jukebox
I have gotten used to using YAMJ as a jukebox for the A110.

Is it possible to use it to generate a jukebox for a PC that is entirely separate and not connected to the A110 to view stored on the PC.

I would like clicking on the play to open the movie using vlc and play it on the computer.

Kind of....I've never been able to get it to work to actually play movies with....but you can view your library at least which can be handy.

RE: Use YAMJ as a windows jukebox
opera is a good browser to use for viewing a jukebox, its more friendly to the pch method of javascript and html which is severely lacking from modern options.. Although if it relies on remote buttons to navigate oyu might need to try a different skin..

then its a matter of getting the playerpath to be computer friendly, then of course you need players which can actually play your file types..

RE: Use YAMJ as a windows jukebox
Yes, you can configure YAMJ to work standalone on a PC. There's an option for that in the GUI config tool.

Linksys E3000 (DD-WRT) - Cisco SG 200-08 - Synology DS1812+ - A-400 - Yamaha RX-V671 - Panasonic TC-P55GT30

I tried using this option. The jukebox works fine as HTML in a browser, the problem is when you click to play a file it doesnt launch the vlc player.

You need to make sure your file associations in windows are correct.
