[FIX] VLC is unable to open the MRL (smb://)
When I tried to open remote video files with VLC via a Samba share I got this error message:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'smb://...'
It seems that this problem is related to credentials and can be fixed by entering the credentials for the Samba share in the VLC preferences (Tools > Preferences > Input / Codecs > Access Modules > SMB Input):
Note: I only experienced this problem when accessing remote files with PCManFM.
