Software :: Stream Movies And Music From Home Server To Other Computers On Network

Mar 26, 2010

I have a debian home server right now, I'm using samba for my file server but I was wanting to stream my movies and music to my other computers. My family (the other users on the network) are NOT computer savvy, and to top it off they are using both Windows (xp) and Mac (Snow Leopard) machines. So I'm looking for software that is simple to use that will allow other operating systems to use it. I would think the easiest way would be to stream the music/movies through a home website. I have seen quite a few programs out there that stream music, but none for movies.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stream Movies From Home Server Over Internet?

Mar 9, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 and I have got a VNC, FTP, SSH, Apache server running on it. I would love to setup a media server on it so that when I'm away from home I can stream my movies rather than download them via ftp (made even worse by my slow upload speed).

I installed fuppes however I think that only streams to xboxes, playstations, etc :/

Is there a piece of software that I could put on top of apache? So that when I'm out and about I can just open my website and from there open my password-protected media server and stream any movie file I chose?

Debian Multimedia :: Find A Way To Stream Home Movies Online?

Sep 1, 2010

I want to find a way to stream my home movies online, so that I can watch them anywhere. I want it to have a way to see all the movies I am streaming and just click on the one I want to play. It cannot be in flash format because of quality reasons. I'd rather it be able to support xvid or divx if possible because of its compression ratio. If not the movie would have to be no more then 1.4gbs a movie and still have good quality.

The closest thing I got to this was jinzora. I have also tried mediatomb (but I cannot figure out a way for vlc player to open the files without manually entering each link and I also cannot figure out a way for it to know at what point it is in the movie ex: 43:01/1:00:00). I am willing to use other formats if needed, but the size cannot be anymore then 1.4gb and still has to be good quality.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stream Movies To IPhone Using A Server

Jun 19, 2010

I was wondering if it would be possible to set up a server on my desktop that has a folder of videos converted to iPhone formats that I can access with my iPhone over the internet to stream videos to my phone?I started by setting up a server and used no-ip2 to create a domain name so I didn't have to worry about my dynamic ip changing.Then I tried unsuccessfully to transcode a DVD to iPhone format using Arista, Transmaggedon, and Avidemux, none of which I could get to properly work.

Finally I used iUI (URL...) to create a site that would appear as a simple menu to search through my movies on my website and stream them.This failed in that every time I set a static link it would change it to URL...

Ubuntu Networking :: Music Server Old Computers

Jun 8, 2011

Alright so i'm sure it's been talking about millions of times, but im fresh with linux so im hoping to get a good answer to what im to start the question is can i link a laptop to a desktop? reason is the laptop is decent enough to power a system, over 1ghz, 512ram, 40gb HDD..desktop is like..P3 500mhz 256 ram uhm i believe larger than 40gb.i also have two externals i currently use for my everyday laptop. 250GB fat32, 1TB NTFS.i would be willing to give one up for the server obviously to hold music ~90GB and obviously growing. preferably just the 250.It would mostly be shared with my own laptop which runs Ubuntu11.04/Win7. PS3 also if possible, not necessary.I'm thinking of putting Debian on the old system, i put it on the laptop so far, runs very nice. but it truely has nothing, and i didn't really select anything on install because i hit the enter button for the check boxes of servers by accident lol.

It would be setup via ethernet to my home modem (bell wireless modem).I would be willing to use one or the other as the server, i dont have to like the laptop and desktop together. the desktop simply has my 7.1 soundcard so im trying to keep it in the mix. i suppose i could put them together at the modem to ethernet them in.not sure what else i should describe! hopefully that gives it a good kickstart and some brilliant answers!

Fedora Servers :: Stream / Share Music / Files Server?

Jun 8, 2010

First let me preface this with saying that I have been googling, and trolling boards trying to find a solution, tutorials, any thing to help me what I am trying to do, all day (since 8 am, when I started work, till now 3:50 pm) and I have found little to improve my situation.My goal is to setup my desktop (running Fedora core 12) as a server that can be accessed from anywhere. I would like to be able to have streaming music (find a song, or an album, you want to listen to, click and play) from any location, any computer, and I would also like to store files and such that I could also share with whomever I give permission. I have found plenty of tutorials helping with Apache and SSH, so anything along those lines would be nice.

Networking :: Sync PDA & Other Computers Across Home Network

Apr 17, 2010

I am interested and looking forward to get a smartphone or a personal data assistant with calendar/ email/ contacts just like the iphone does.My intention is to be able to sync my smartphone's data with my home server that actually carries my PIM applications. Basically, during the day when I am not home I will modify or add/remove data from the phone. When I arrive home I would like to be able to sync my changes to my server. My laptop will be reconfigured to retrieve and sync from that server.

Proudly running with Slackware on ALL my machines (gotta love Slack!), and Apple being **** by not supporting open source and linux environment, it seems that it will be difficult to have something working out of the box and will probably require jail-breaking the device, etc.. I don't want to rely on external services such as Google calendar except for the email from Gmail.

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.

General :: Windows - Use A Computers (would Be) Audio Output As A Stream?

Feb 28, 2010

I have two machines on a local area network (xp box and xubuntu box) and I want audio from both machines to be played from the same set of speakers. The problem is, the xubuntu machine doesn't have any sound output. There is no onboard sound card and all expansion slots are pci-x, so short of buying a pci-x sound card my only option for playing sound is to route audio through LAN to my xp computer.

I already have a program that will let me play music on one computer from another's speakers, but I am trying to set up a stream so that games and internet sound can be heard. Is it possible for me to do this?

Data disks act similarly, but no ejection. Disk spins momentarily, no icon appears on desktop, disk does not eject, No further action.

Server :: SSH On Multiple Computers In Same Network

Dec 29, 2010

I am setting up my home network. Currently, I have one computer (Munchen) which I have set in my router to receive SSH requests. This works just fine; I can SSH into that box from anywhere. I just put together a new computer, which I want to be a file repository, my ftp server, my http server, etc. What I would like is to be able to SSH into that machine from anywhere, then SSH into the other computers on that network from there.

Here is where I really don't understand the concept of what is going on. I can SSH past the router into one computer just fine either from anywhere (that makes sense to me). I can SSH from my new computer (Chemnitz) into Munchen (which is where the router points to and is running sshd) by using its local IP address, but I can't go from Munchen to Chemnitz (even though the server is running and the firewall should be allowing the connection). [URL]

Details of the system setup are below.
Munchen (receives all port 22 requests now)
Ubuntu 10.04
Chemnitz (I want to receive all port 22 requests and SSH into other computers on the network from it. Ultimately it will be a file sharing box, hosting a webpage, running an ftp server, etc.)
Fedora 14

CentOS 5 :: Server To Stream Media Over Local Network

Jun 14, 2010

I'm using CentOS 5.5 as a media server to stream media content over my local network. Currently i'm having problem while installing scrobbler.

Here is a sample output:
yum localinstall xmms-scrobbler-0.4.0-7.fc11.i586.rpm
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities
Setting up Local Package Process
Examining xmms-scrobbler-0.4.0-7.fc11.i586.rpm: xmms-scrobbler-0.4.0-7.fc11.i586
Marking xmms-scrobbler-0.4.0-7.fc11.i586.rpm to be installed
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile .....

The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.
Upon searching my hard disk this is what i get:
find / -mount -name libcurl*

So it tells me that I need, but I couldn't find any suitable rpm binaries for it. The only rpm that i found was for Suse and Mandrake. How to set this up, so that i can get a fully functional media server.

Ubuntu Networking :: Media (Music And Movies) Sharing And Windows

Mar 8, 2010

I am having issues with streaming media (music and movies), well just transfer speeds period, from my Windows Vista desktop PC and my Ubuntu laptop On my Windows PC I have two folders shared: Music and Movies. I also have Media sharing enabled on my Windows PC so that I can stream my music and movies to my Xbox360 and playstation 3. My game consoles have no issues at all with playback speed and quality. My laptop is a dual boot with Windows and Ubuntu.

Streaming to my laptop under Windows is fine. Playback is great and copying files to and from my network shares(Music and Movies folders) is fast. However, under Ubuntu, I've mounted an SMB share to the Windows computer to each folder. When I browse to an MP3 song in VLC, I cannot even listen to it! It'll constantly buffer every few seconds. Forget about trying to watch a movie in VLC either! XBMC and Boxee are useless because they NEVER finish scanning the network folders to even add my content - let alone try to stream them.

Trying to copy 89MB (an album worth of MP3s) from the Windows server to Ubuntu was going to take 8hours! Something is definitely wrong here and I just can't figure it out. Should I be connecting to Windows using some other networking method besides SMB? My network is setup with my Windows Desktop connected via 100MB ethernet to a wireless router. The Router is dual broadcasting in G and N modes. I have excellent connection strength and full network rate (54MB for G) on my laptop. Again, networking is fine when using Windows on the laptop.
