Problem with scanner on new pc / ccg install

Hi all,
I feel pretty stupid about this, but…
I’ve installed CCG server (casparcg-server-3e80053271ddd3bfe6bd751cee09e2ef1a74ae6a-windows) and scanner (casparcg-scanner-cedadbb4cfef4fa0cb17ec2320d0c0545aaed4a5-windows)

I have one file in media/, that plays out manually (play 1-1 in CCG console) but is not visible in either CCG client or SuperConductor.

Scanner seems to find the media file:

stuff seems to be listening on port 8000 and 5250 according to netstat

Any idea what I am missing? I’ve never experienced this before.

I just installed 2.3.3 stable, and that is running as expected, so it seems to be related to the scanner version?

Hi Rune,

I’m not quite sure but it might be a problem to use a question mark in the file name.


Thanks, Ingo, but it’s a file from the default video pack and plays fine on 2.3.3 stable.
I’m just going to go with 2.3.3 for the time being.

AFAIK the question mark is NOT a legal character in filenames. Sometimes it might work, but sometimes not. I would change the name anyway. That there is a question mark in the filename can have something to do with a wrong text encoding while moving files between different operating systems. I don’t think somebody did that intentionally.
