Vero4k not handling symlinks?

I symlinked a file with a script, it works perfectly fine in VLC and Mediaplayer on my PC, it scans it into the right directory on vero4k and pi3 but when I try to start it it doesn’t play.
What causes this and how can I fix it? I really want to get rid of hardlinking.

Where is the file located? On your PC? How are you accessing the file from the Vero? Kodi mounts, fstab or autofs?

It’s located on my pc, loaded throught NFS with fstab (I think, it’s been a while).

autofs, I had to check my previous PM’s.

Is the link in a directory that is exported via NFS? It could be that the NFS server on the PC isn’t following the symlink properly.

The link is in the same directory as my hard links

Symbolic link from M: To T: drive. Works fine in any players on PC, does not work on Vero.

Can you see it from the command line on the vero?

Do you scrape files to your library? If you do then it could be a naming issue as I don’t think that 11E02 is a valid name, it should be S11E02 or 11x02.

The S was a typo, it’s S11E02

Let me check command line

lol I was posting in the wrong topic.

You actually helped me set it up NFS and SMB, Neither work well! - #246 by darwindesign

I don’t know how to access the mounts in command line anymore though, if I dir or ls I just get the local files.

ls is the linux command, dir is for windows. It would be helpful to see both commands.

Movies Music Pictures TV\ Shows moviestest

Movies Music Pictures TV Shows moviestest

osmc@osmc:~$ cd TV\ Shows/
osmc@osmc-:~/TV Shows$ ls
osmc@osmc-:~/TV Shows$

And DIR on TV\ Shows on the windows system?

osmc@osmc~/TV Shows$ dir
osmc@osmc:~/TV Shows$

We are going to need more information. Share what your autofs map looks like. Normally your mounts will be in /mnt

What commands would you like to see?

Other files work just fine btw, I just checked. Jus tthe symlink doesn’t work while it does on PC.

If you haven’t changed your autofs config, then share the output of:

ls -l /mnt/Shows/Archer/S11

And do the corresponding dir on the windows system of t:\Shows\Archer\S11

~/TV Shows$ ls -l /mnt/Shows/Archer/Season\ 11
total 58
-rw-r–r-- 1 osmc osmc 57219 Oct 3 01:07 S11E02 - Bloodsploosh-thumb.jpg
-rw-r–r-- 1 osmc osmc 0 Oct 3 01:07 S11E02 - Bloodsploosh.mkv
-rw-r–r-- 1 osmc osmc 1821 Oct 3 01:07 S11E02 - Bloodsploosh.nfo

and then the dir
dir -l /mnt/Shows/Archer/Season\ 11
total 58
-rw-r–r-- 1 osmc osmc 57219 Oct 3 01:07 S11E02\ -\ Bloodsploosh-thumb.jpg
-rw-r–r-- 1 osmc osmc 0 Oct 3 01:07 S11E02\ -\ Bloodsploosh.mkv
-rw-r–r-- 1 osmc osmc 1821 Oct 3 01:07 S11E02\ -\ Bloodsploosh.nfo

I asked you to run the DIR on the windows system, not on the Vero!

According to the ls, the file is empty.

Sorry about that

DIR in the directory the file should be?

That’s what I asked for.
