Streaming From Ubuntu 8.10 TO Xbox 360


This is the third time that I have tried to convert to ubuntu but everytime I switch back to windows because I have been unable to stream to my xbox360. My linux knowledge is not great but I want to learn.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I have tried a few different programs but the guides have always been a little over my head.

I'm running ubuntu 8.10 and I want to be able to stream avi's to my 360.

You would need a UPnP media streamer, such as MediaTomb or Fuppes. I know that Fuppes has specific support for the 360, not sure about MediaTomb (I know they both support the PS3 though).

I have installed mediatomb, cant figure out how to use it, doesnt seem to be that many settings.

I have no idea how to install Fuppes, I'm lookin for some sort of beginner guide, everything I find is just 2 complicated 4 me at the moment

The Fuppes documentation has all of the steps required to install from source:

Code:
get the latest fuppes sources, unpack them and change in the fuppes directory
$ tar -xvzf fuppes-0.x.tar.gz
$ cd fuppes-0.x

configure the source
$ ./configure

You can check available configure options
$ ./configure --help

the following configure options are availabe
--disable-transcoding 	./configure will not look for any transcoding libraries
--disable-lame 	disable LAME support
--disable-twolame 	disable TwoLAME support
--enable-default-http-port=PORT 	HTTP server will listen on port "PORT" instead of using a random port.
Port remains changeable via config.
--enable-libnotify 	use libnotify if available

when configuration is finished simply run
$ make

to install fuppes run (as root)
$ su -
# make install

or
$ sudo make install
You can ignore the "configure --help" parts, since you don't want to change any options. Just do the normal configuration and build.

Hi thanks for replying, I have been to the fuppes site but I'm stuck on the first bit.

"get the latest fuppes sources, unpack them and change in the fuppes directory
$ tar -xvzf fuppes-0.x.tar.gz
$ cd fuppes-0.x "

Change in the fuppes directory?

"$ tar -xvzf fuppes-0.x.tar.gz
$ cd fuppes-0.x "

Am I performing this in terminal?

Yes, you would do all that from the terminal. Apparently there are no binary packages for Fuppes in the Ubuntu repository, so you have to built it from source.

You can find some Ubuntu-specific information about installing from source online, like this page.

hi thanks again for your help

Im getting there, I think I'm just confused on the directories.


I downloaded the file:
fuppes-SVN-578.tar.gz

I extracted it and got:
fuppes-SVN-578

Both of the above are in:
/home/darren/Downloads

The source file is in:
/home/darren/Downloads/fuppes-SVN-578/src

When I type ./configure I get this at the end:

"checking for PCRE... configure: error: Package requirements (libpcre >= 5.0) were not met:

No package 'libpcre' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PCRE_CFLAGS
and PCRE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details."

It worked for me

Im getting there, I think I'm just confused on the directories.

fuppes-SVN-578.tar.gz

fuppes-SVN-578

Both of the above are in:
/home/darren/Downloads

The source file is in:
/home/darren/Downloads/fuppes-SVN-578/src

if you run ./configure from /home/darren/Downloads/fuppes-SVN-578 and not from /home/darren/Downloads/fuppes-SVN-578/src it should work. Then from the same directory run
make
sudo make install

This worked for me and I am running ubuntu 8.10 server streaming to an xbox 360. You will also have to download, compile and install taglib.
