is it actually possible to stream xvids to the 360 with mbwe, i have installed upnp and ushare and all looks like it is working fine. only problem i can see if the 360 is looking for a windows based pc so it does not see the drive on the network.
if anyone is willing to help me it will be really appriciated
I had that problem too, where it couldn't see the drive. When I started ushare explicitely using: ushare -D -f /etc/ushare.conf, it seemed to recognize it. You'll have to stop the existing instance of ushare if you followed the autostartup script. I actually had to kill it on mine using kill and the process id.
Make sure that the /etc/ushare.conf exists or create a link to it if not before you do the stuff above. I also made sure to only inlude the option for XBox=yes, and the share paths in the config file.
As far as DivX; sorry, I would like to know the answer to that question too.
tried what you have said but the 360 cant see it
this is my ushare.conf file in case its wrong cause i have noticed some diffreneces to the version on the tutorial
- Configuration file for uShare
- uShare UPnP Friendly Name (default is 'uShare').
- Interface to listen to (default is eth0).
- Ex : USHARE_IFACE=eth1
- Port to listen to (default is random from IANA Dynamic Ports range)
- Ex : USHARE_PORT=49200
- Port to listen for Telnet connections
- Ex : USHARE_TELNET_PORT=1337
- Directories to be shared (space or CSV list).
- Ex: USHARE_DIR=/dir1,/dir2
- Use to override what happens when iconv fails to parse a file name.
- The default uShare behaviour is to not add the entry in the media list
- This option overrides that behaviour and adds the non-iconv'ed string into
- the media list, with the assumption that the renderer will be able to
- handle it. Devices like Noxon 2 have no problem with strings being passed
- as is. (Umlauts for all!)
- Options are TRUE/YES/1 for override and anything else for default behaviour
- Enable Web interface (yes/no)
- Enable Telnet control interface (yes/no)
- Use XboX 360 compatibility mode (yes/no)
- Use DLNA profile (yes/no)
- This is needed for PlayStation3 to work (among other devices)
as soon as i can get it seen by the 360 it will be a doddle to get xvids running :)
I also hope anyone has a solution for this problem. My ushare.conf file looks exactly the same as yours and also the 360 can't seem to find the mybook.
I have no problem streaming XVIDs and DIVX to my XBOX360. When I use the S99ushare start command, I can start ushare without problems, but the server will not be recognized by the XBOX. Instead I use the "simple" way to start ushare:
/opt/bin/ushare -v -x &
Somehow it recognises my shares folder, which is entered in the ushare.conf. Why it does not recognises the XBOX360-flag I do not know. I haven't used ushare for very long, probably there is a more elegant way :) The above works just fine for me, and as they say: Never change a running system.
If your shares are not found by ushare, just use an additional -c /[your share folder]
