I'm trying to send a folder of videos to my STB and I want to control the playlist of those videos through VLC's web interface. My plan is to load the whole folder on command execution. Here's the command:
"vlc" -I dummy --dummy-quiet --extraintf=http --http-password testing --directx-volume=0.00 "C:\Users\User\Videos" :sout=#duplicate{dst=udp{mux=ts,dst=239.9.14.2:1234},dst=dummy} :no-sout-rtp-sap :no-sout-standard-sap :sout-all :ttl=1 :sout-keep

But for some reason, I can't get this working. Here's what the dummy interface gives as output errors (keeps running those forever in a loop):
libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 5.0.0 libdvdread: Could not open C:\Users\User\Videos with libdvdcss. libdvdread: Can't open C:\Users\User\Videos for reading libdvdread: Device C:\Users\User\Videos inaccessible, CSS authentication not available. libdvdread:DVDOpenFilePath:findDVDFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO failed libdvdread:DVDOpenFilePath:findDVDFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP failed libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO. libdvdnav: vm: failed to read VIDEO_TS.IFO

Though if I load a single file instead of a folder, this command works perfectly. The output keeps telling me something about "VIDEO_TS", which are usually DVD files - but there are no DVD files there - no IFO-s, no BUP-s, nothing.

Thanks for any suggestions on how I could load a folder!
