Streamer is set on “High” for me and the imported .m4v movie (transcoded through Handbrake) is in 480x256 (which shouldn't require re-encoding).
Importing the movie triggers a progress bar, but once it is done, there is nothing in the main UI, and the application takes up lose to no CPU (which makes me doub it is re-encoding anything).
As I previously mentioned, the file does get copied to the Streamer folder, but that's about it. There is no discernable sign of activity once the movie is imported.
I can confirm that it's not just the main UI not displaying the movie by checking the Streamer URL which indeed shows the list as blank,
There is nothing wrong with the movie itself. I can play it on my Mac and on my iPod Touch BTW.
I'm wondering whether my problem and Robingo88's couldn't be related: Streamer tries to reconvert these movies (even though it shouldn't) and in my case, it simply fails to launch Toast to do so. Is it what it's supposed to do to convert the movies?
If I launch Toast first, then import the movie in Streamer, nothing really happens in Toast either.
(Later) Well I can see that if I import a movie that is not in a compatible format, the behavior is quite different: Streamer doesn't display anything at first (no import progress bar), but Toast is triggered and starts converting the file. Clearly not the same thing. It does look like there is a problem with files that are already in the proper format and should not require re-encoding.
