When trying to play a video through the Smartbox/Media Streamer, I get an error like, "Domain = media player error domain code=-1186 "cannot open" userinfo=0x17e6bcb0{nslocalized description - cannot open} ".

When trying to play some movies that have been purchased through sites such as iTunes, you will need to use the web browser on the remote device instead of the App.

To do this:

While connected to the Smartbox/Media Streamer WiFi, simply open a Web browser (Safari, Chrome, Opera, Firefox, etc) and in the address line, type in the IP address of the Smartbox/Media Stream, which is usually 192.168.1.2.  

Use the web interface to navigate to your video and you should then be able to play the video.
