Trying to FIND mediatomb 0.12.0
 
Hello,
I'm trying to stream media from my Ubuntu machine(s) to my DirecTV HR22 receiver. I used apt-get to install mediatomb (0.11.0). I can see my directory's files on the TV, but everything shows up with a file size of "0", and won't play. After some searching on the web, it seems I need version 0.12.0 for the HR22. All pages point to http://sourceforge.net/projects/mediatomb/files/, but 0.12.0 is NOT on that site (that I can find). Am I just blind here? I can't seem to find that version anywhere.
I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 on 2 different machines.
Any help would be appreciated.

The current version of mediatomb is .11, if you need a newer version than that you probably would need to checkout the code from the repository and compile and install it yourself.

Hey,

First of all I would ditch MediaTomb and get yourself a copy of serviio

It's so simple to set up and there is a forum for all your questions etc etc.

I have got myself a new Samsung 55" LED tv and loaded this on my little 4.3GB Ubuntu media server which has 2x 500GB raid0 disks attached and it streams my music and video's like a dream. I'm well impressed and it only took me 20mins to install and configure.

Check it out!

You really should check the mediatomb's configfile (there : /etc/mediatomb/config.xml).
Maybe the video format you're trying to read is not configured ! That would explain why your tv doesn't receive all the information about your files ...

I added to my config.xml file this line :
Code:

<map from="avi" to="video/divx"/>
you should probably do the same ....

My config.xml :
