Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stream Music And Videos To Xbox 360 From 10.10 - Ushare Works ... But No Media

Feb 12, 2011

I am trying to stream my music and videos to my xbox 360 from ubuntu 10.10, and I have set up ushare to do that. Ushare seems to be workign correctly, it starts up and the xbox recognises the share from the media menu, but there is no videos or music! For some reason ushare doesnt find any media in the folders I specified, and I double checked and the paths look correct to me. This is the error I get in the terminal:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: UShare Setup To Stream Videos To Xbox 360

Feb 27, 2011

Is there anyone else out there who uses UShare? I'm trying to set it up so I can stream videos from Ubuntu to my Xbox 360. I got it set up however it spews out this:

uShare (version 1.1a), a lightweight UPnP A/V and DLNA Media Server.
Benjamin Zores (C) 2005-2007, for GeeXboX Team.
See [URL] for updates.
Initializing UPnP subsystem ...
Starting in XboX 360 compliant profile ...
UPnP MediaServer listening on
Sending UPnP advertisement for device ...
Listening for control point connections ...
Building Metadata List ...
Looking for files in content directory : /home/james/videos
scandir: No such file or directory
Found 1 files and subdirectories.

As you can see it's saying no such file or directory but at the same time telling me it did find the one file in the directory. How to fix this or any other software will allow me to achieve streaming to 360? Because this software seems extremely buggy.

Ubuntu :: Install Ushare To Be Able To Play Music And Videos On Xbox 360

Feb 22, 2011

So in trying to install ushare to be able to play my music and videos on my xbox 360, I have apparently screwed something up and now I can't get ushare to work. I can't even get it uninstall and do a fresh install. I used the instructions found here: [URL]. I got down to the basic configuration tool. I entered the name of the media server, which I called Ubuntu_Media_Server. Then I identified my network interface, which was my wireless connection (wlan0). Then I told it what directory to share, which was /home/ryan/music and hit enter.

It did exactly what it was supposed to do which was to restart ushare. And then, oops, I forgot, I wanted to be able to see my videos as well as my music, so I went back and ran the same command that I had to start the configuration tool which was $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure ushare and voila, I went back and added in the directory for the video folder that I wanted to share and hit enter. Again, it restarted as expected then it said permission was denied to the video folder. So I went to the video folder and gave permission for it to be shared. So then in all my illustrious wisdom (which apparently equates to dumbass), I decided to completely uninstall ushare and do a fresh install. Then it wouldn't reinstall, same problem permission denied for the video file.

Ubuntu :: Music In XBOX 360 Via Ushare ?

Jun 22, 2010

I have ushare server connected to my 360 and its working fine, I can see my videos and watch them perfectly, but my music or mp3's arent displaying on the 360 properly at all.

In the video library it displays all the sub folders with the videos in them first and then the video files that arent in a folder, thats normal for me. But the music libray is only showing 1000 files and half of it is the album art jpg files etc. I have well over 30,000 mp3's and 98% of them are organised into folders etc.

Why its sharing my files in this way?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Stream Media To Xbox 360?

Dec 17, 2009

I'm pretty sure this has been asked before, and I'm not even sure I'm in the right thread,*ahem* I am trying to stream media (or at least music) from my openSUSE 11.2 library, either from Amarok or a specialized program. The problem is, I only have one computer and it's upstairs, the Xbox is in the basement. So, it needs to be wireless. Not sure where I saw it, but there was a guide for doing it with Ubuntu, a spare computer, and an Ethernet cable. As you can see, however, there are 3 fatal flaws to this method in my case.

I used to use TwonkyMedia Server, but that was a trial, and I refuse to pay for any service that should be as simple as Pie (no, not Pi. That's not quite as simple).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: UShare On 11.04, Won't Link To Xbox?

Jan 9, 2011

I have been using uShare for a few years now, and up until now it has worked great. A few snags here and there, but nothing I couldn't figure out, although after five years using Ubuntu, i still consider myself a noob. Now I am on a new machine, running Ubuntu 11.04 (my last one was running 9.04) and I am having trouble with uShare again. Its installed, configured, and runs just fine, but my xbox won't recognize it.Here's the catch: the first night I set it up, after a few errors, I got it working! Watched a movie, smiled, and went to bed. Woke up the next morning, booted up the comp, fired up ushare and BAM! Nothing. I hadn't changed any settings, moved any cables, downloaded anything new, but no dice. After a little searching, I updated the .conf file to reflect a change I noticed in the IFACE. Sometimes when I boot my computer, it connects to the router on eth0, sometimes on eth1, and sometimes on eth0-eth1. I'm not sure what is up with that, but that may be a problem for another day. For right now, I just want uShare to work.

# /etc/ushare.conf
# Edit this file with 'dpkg-reconfigure ushare'

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 - Xbox 360 And UShare Configuration

Mar 14, 2011

I want to play my videos on my xbox off of my pc [ubuntu10.10]. I have Ushare configured as follows:

USHARE_IFACE=xbox (I created a new wired connection in the network manager (IPV4 set to shared to other computers and that's what I named it).
USHARE_PORT=49200 (not sure if that's correct or how I'd go about finding the port)


On my xbox I go to test PC connection. It connects to the network but not the PC and goes to PC Not Listed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Every Music Player Wants To Stream Music?

Apr 19, 2010

I've had an awkward problem lately: every music player I use wants to instead of play music from my USB external hard drive, stream music from it. I have no idea why it suddenly started doing that. It may have been an accidental key-combo I pressed, thinking I had another window targeted and didn't bother pressing it again for my Totem music player. So I closed out of Totem in hopes that Rythmbox would work like totem used to. Well, it doesn't. It wants to stream music now.The problem with the streaming music is trivial, but here it is: I have a playlist with a little over 300 songs. I have Totem set to shuffle and repeat my music. Streaming music with it makes it just stop randomly after a few songs, and when I try to pause music and play it later it takes a good 30 seconds before it kicks back in at the beginning of the song.Like I always ask because I don't know enough to give back to the community yet, can anyone help me? Thanks.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Use Xbox 360 For A Smooth Media Center Experience?

Oct 11, 2010

I've been looking around for the past week, but I have yet to find anything yet that provides a media center solution using Ubuntu + Xbox 360, comparable to Windows 7 + Xbox 360.

I want to drop Windows 7 completely on my media PC, and just use Ubuntu (or Linux Mint). I've tried ushare, XBMC, Moovida, and a few other apps. Either they don't support sharing, or it's difficult to configure, or it is a cheap looking solution.

Is there no way to use my Xbox 360 for a smooth media center experience, similar to how it functions as a Media Center Extender for Win7, while replacing Win7 w/ Ubuntu?

I'm even open to commercial Linux solutions, I'm just hoping to be able to drop Win7 if possible..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stream Music From My Computer To Android Device?

Jun 28, 2011

I have found countless things that claim to be able to do this for free. I basically want to use my computer's music on my android device while I am not home. Plug in the headphones, press play, and listen to it. Essentially, turning my own computer into my own personal "cloud streaming service" like Ubuntu One.

I have gotten none of them to set up properly. any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to buy a large microSD card if I don't have to, i'd rather just stream it to my phone from my PC.

I don't want it to be WIFI only, I need it to work on my normal data connection.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Syncing Lights To Music Videos ?

Mar 18, 2011

I would like to do is as the subject says, I want to take a music video and then sync several light channels to the music video.

I would like dimming control of the lights as you would have with a DMX 512 system or even Midi. In which the light programming is done in a choreographed sequencing pattern, much like many Midi "piano roll" based editing software.

In a nutshell I would like to do what the Windows program "Vixen" Christmas lighting control program does, but within Linux AND for videos. Sadly Vixen doesn't support syncing to video's at this time...only audio. Another thing is that Vixen also doesn't work with Wine, so it is a no go in Linux.

I would hope that by now there is some kind of video program that does permit syncing to external output devices.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Build A Music Media Center

Aug 27, 2010

I am trying to build a media center for music for me and my roommates to use. Basically I want to build a system just for playing music. Idealy (dare i mention itunes in here) I would love a computer just just booted into itunes(orsomething like it (or better) that just was for playing music.

I plan on buying a computer, like a tiny desktop (i dont want to take up a lot of room) with a huge hard drive just for holding music, and needs usb drives/cd drive for loading music onto it (or just a usb drive). Then get a small screen, not huge with a remote that does not run on wife. Also would like a keyboard on the remote if possible.

Anywho whats a good media center, and can I boot just straight into the media center? I would like support for; browse by artist, album and just song name. Also I would like to be able to make playlist within it, and it needs to be able to support a massive amount of songs.

desktop computers to use for this project and remotes that I could use? Also how would you suggest the best way to go about doing this? I would love if it booted straight into the media player. Internet is not a huge deal to me, might connect to internet once just to grab album artwork. So a media player that auto fetches artwork too would also be nice.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Organizing Music Library For Media Server

Oct 13, 2010

I have an Ubuntu server installation set up as a media server with Subsonic in a medium sized office environment. I allow uploads from all employees to the media folder on the server. As you can imagine, it's going to get a bit messy in there with multiple spellings of artist and album names for directory names, duplicate files, and incorrect filenames and tags. I was hoping I could find a script that I could run daily as a cron job to clean up the media drive. I would like to maintain a path similar to: /mnt/music/Artist/Album/Song.file

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Anything - Music - Flash - Videos - Games - 'muffled' - Poor Sound Quality

Apr 7, 2010

I just got my hands on an MSI E7235-295US and slapped Ubuntu 9.10 on it. So far everything's worked great, but I am beginning to get a bit concerned about my sound quality. The laptop itself has 5 speakers + subwoofer so I should be getting 5.1 sound, if I understand things correctly (the newegg link should provide more details) and when I play anything (music, flash, videos, games, etc...) the sound comes out 'muffled'. Almost as if it is in a concert hall, maybe. I initially wondered if the problem is related to the 5 speakers and if the sound is initially only setup for two. If that is the case, nothing I've done has seemed to made any real difference. I've tried changing the master/pci channels, but it only hides it a little, and doesn't solve the problem.

This seemed to be on the right track, but the laptop is still really new and not listed in the alsa file.

Some info:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 7220

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music / Media Player For Car That Can Be Navigated Easily Using Only Keyboard?

Jul 4, 2010

I want to build a computer inside my car mainly for having ALL my music in the car's hard drive. I want to run ubuntu (or ubuntu netbook edition) on it and be able to navigate quickly without using a mouse. Running programs is no problem but navigating any music players without a mouse is terrible. Are there any music players that have an ipod/xmb interface and are easy to navigate using mainly the arrow keys/enter? I have considered just using a touchscreen but I really want to find a way so all I need is a keyboard with 5 or 6 keys.
