Streaming Video Apps

Postby rampage355 » Wed Dec 10, 2008 10:08 am

I was wondering if anyone knew of any webbased video streaming apps that could be integrated into amahi, much like the streaming music apps, like amapche http://www.amapche.org, Zina http://www.pancake.org/zina or Jinzora http://en.jinzora.com/ but for movies, there is one app OpenDB http://opendb.iamvegan.net/wiki/index.php that is looking into adding the functionality to it but has not yet. Maybe tversity http://tversity.com/ is a option?
Maybe add some of the functionality from LinuxMCE http://www.linuxmce.org/
If anyone knows of a good app let me know.

Jinzora does stream video, I have not used it to stream videos myself but here are the supported video types AVI, WMV, MPEG, & MOV

Here is what I am looking for in a media server, I have one machine in the living room hooked to the tv, I want to be able to steam to any computer or, request from my laptop to play it on the tv instead of my laptop, cause I am lazy and don't want to get up lol

Look into GeexBox for your 'front-end' machine attached to your TV.

XBMC is great too, but its horked on my windows clients right now. Streams just fine to my Linux (Ubuntu 8.10) clients. Looking to softmod my Original XBox to be a front-end as well.

Geexbox is way lighter, fits on ~18MB CD and requires VERY little hardware.

Download the Geexbox ISO creator, modify it for your needs (no auto eject, auto TV-out, LIRC settings, etc) and burn it.


Another decent hardware based front-end is the Hauppauge Media MVP running mvpmc.org's software.
