Hi PCNetSpec, that did it, once again you have made this Peppermint experience a joy. As I had mentioned, I tried webcamoid and I went to their website, they have a package for 16.04 which would open but also had problems, no audio, so I left a post asking them for help with that. The response was to try to open the repository package in terminal to determine the missing dependencies and the new release has a bug that is causing the no audio and that they are working on it. I'll have to reinstall webcamoid to see which dependencies are missing, I'll repost here with my findings and if I was able to fix it. Thanks again.  :)

Maybe try password= instead of pass= .. and leave out the quotation marks .. like I suggested in my last post.

Bye.

Doesn't work:
Code: [Select]
piras@piras-Aspire-V7-482P ~ $ sudo mount.cifs //10.0.1.1/TC/ /mnt/TC/ -o “pass=1010101010,sec=ntlm”
Password for root@//10.0.1.1/TC/:  **********
mount error(22): Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
piras@piras-Aspire-V7-482P ~ $

Appreciate your help, but that is one of the reasons Linux is not mainstream. Don't get it, it's been around for so long and the open source community still hasn't been able to make it user friendly.
Back to Windows for me.

Hey! I got it working. It was a silly mistake from my side.
I noticed I had more than one file managers installed so I purged all of them except nemo and instantly I got it working as expected.
Thank you everyone for your help and suggestions :)
