Playing a file from SMB in VLC under Linux   James - Friday, August 12, 2016, 8:23 am

I found this to fix my problems when trying to play a movie under SMB (Windows Share) with VLC under Linux (Ubuntu, if that matters).

  • Open VLC
  • Go to Tools > Preferences
  • Under the header Show Settings (bottom left), select the All button
  • Select Input / Codecs > Access Modules > SMB on the left
  • Enter credentials
