Media Server DLNA Protocol Error (2101)

For the last couple of days I've received the below error when streaming from my mac to PS3 with Medialink:
Media Server Error: A DLNA Protocol Error (2101) has occured.

Any ideas what the deal is with this? Running PS3 firmware 3.0 and Medialink 2.0A1. Not sure if problem is related to 3.0?

 

Thanks.

I had the same problem. I upgraded to Snow Leopard and the album art generator plugin is causing the MediaLinkHelper to crash when generating the quick look thumbnails (check your system logs, there'll be crash diagnostic reports). (I think 2101 is just a timeout due to the helper crashing)

 

You can remove the plugin so MediaLink will at least work, if without thumbnails. Go to the following location, either on your HDD, or from your home directory depending if it's installed for all users or just you: 

1. Go to Library/PreferencePanes
2. Right click MediaLink.prefPane, Show Contents
3. Go to Contents/Resources/MediaLinkHelper.app/Contents/PlugIns
4. Remove AlbumArtTranscoder.mltranscoder

Hopefully the guys at NullRiver are on top of this and can get it sorted

Thanks for that. I've been searching everywhere for the cause of the problem. Let's hope Nullriver fixes it soon.

I just upgraded  as well and still have the same problem under 2.0b1 I had on 2.0a1. Only thing that works so far is deleting the file mentioned in the post above.

This software is becoming a joke.  Nullriver was totally unprepared for the release of Snow Leopard… it's not like it snuck up on them or something!  I've been using Medialink from just about day one;  everything was peachy until they started putting out these error-prone alphas (alphas!) and betas.  I understand that alphas/betas aren't going to be perfect, but it's been months since SL shipped, and they still don't have a stable release that works reliably.

I haven't had the opportunity to try 2.0b1 yet, but it's not necessarily the thumbnail generator itself causing the problem. Check the crash report and look for indications of any particular codec library calls in the stack trace, for instance I had a problem with a buggy codec causing crashes with the previous, stable version.
