DLNA server with 64 bit Ubuntu that works with Google TV

Posted 06-08-2011 at 07:22 PM by jkzfixme

I have tried quite a few DLNA server with my Google TV , and TVMobili seems to work the best for me. Due to the fact that I am running an AMD 64 bit processor I had to go a few small extra steps to get the streaming goodness.

First you need to download the latest greatest Debian based package by opening up a terminal and pasting the following.

Next you need to install getlibs which automatically solves dependencies for 32-bit programs on 64-bit
and install it

sudo dpkg -i getlibs-all.deb
Now we need to install the TVmobili package we downloaded earlier

sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture tvMobiliInstall_debian.deb
Now we need to configure the directories by logging into the web interface for TVmobili using the browser on either the computer you are at or the Google TV.

You click on the manage button in the bottom left and then settings.

From here you can password protect , outline the directories you want to stream and any number of other configurable options.
