Sharing music, pictures and videos from a Linux computer (using Ubuntu) to an Xbox360 is a bit of a jump around at the moment.
In a previous post, i detailed using ushare 1.1a to do it. This worked fairly well. I would sometimes have wierd crash issues, but restarting the xbox seemed to sort it out.
Things worked, music and movies played. The only real problem i discovered was that the music playlists and albums wern't being displayed. Rather everything was being displayed. This is annoying because, there doesnt seem to be anyway to search the songs on the xbox (correct me if im wrong please!). The way it seems to do it, is to build playlists. Although ushare wasnt picking up the playlist, just displaying everything...
So i downloaded TwonkyVision. This works alot better as I except, picks up playlists, and also has a cool browser based frontend. Problem is that it costs 30 euros. hah.
There are two other upnp servers i know of - mediatomb and Fuppes. I havent tried them yet, but suspect I will as it gets closer to my Townkyvision license expiring. If anyone has any experience with them, please let me know.
