Linux daemon

my dream is to have a server for all my house (wify ap server, mediaserver, p2p server) i have now an ap an p2p server in a linux slackware machine in the roof , and it works fine and the noise is more than affordable.
now i have brougth a smc wmr -ag mediaclient and the only mediaserver is the original for windows. I am looking for one in linux but twosky and gmedia does`t be recognaiced.
please make a linux distro with a comand line daemon

if i could give any help, just tell me.

We do plan to make a release for Linux but we do not have one at this point.

thanks for your quick answer , could you tell me when you forseen this feature?

Well, I cannot provide an accurate time frame right now. However I can tell you that our first goal is to make 1.0 and once we make it chances are we will want to make it work on other platforms as well and Linux and Mac are of-course the primary candidates here.

if you need some beta testers i will be glad to do it , i came from spain

I’d be willing to Pay/Donate $50.00 for a linux version of Tversity that works. I know its not much but I’m sure I’m not the only one. :-)

Thanks, we still plan to make it happen after we reach 1.0 so bear with us a little longer.
BTW, what are the TVersity features most important to you? Is it the Internet content capabilities? or just a solid media server for your home media?

I think its both that sets TVersity apart. I really like the web content on my TV, but I got here (as probably most other folks) b/c the d-link server cried for replacement due to its instability.
I think the most important thing right now is getting all the unhappy dsm-320 1.07 campers happy again (I know, any day now :) ) - even tho I understand it wasn’t you folks that cause the mayhem.

PS: I’d really like to see a Linux (or even better: FreeBSD) version of TVersity eventually too, but I guess I can wait 'til after 1.0. Has anyone tried running TVersity with wine or vmware?

Definitely both is what makes TVersity unique, altough I myself prefer a good solid (transcoding) media-server.

I’d also consider myself to be interested in a non-Windows version of this server. Perhaps as part of a small specialised distro like Dyne:bolic. That distro even seems to fit TVersity’s profile (‘free’ access to media).

[/quote] It works according to some users:

I am also interested in a Linux version. I too have a server sitting under my stairs doing everything.

I own an XBox 360, and one of the things it can’t do is play OGG Vorbis files. One of the killer features for me would be realtime transcoding of OGG into something playable (MP3, WMA, or WAV).

Would you be willing to pay only $20 for a linux version of TVersity that doesn’t work? If so, I can send it to you right away :D

TVersity does not yet support Linux, howebet some use it via VMWARE and report that it works well for them, so u may want to give it a shot.

Just thought I’d also add my vote for a native Linux port of TVersity. My use case is that I’ve got all my media (video and music) on a fileserver which is Linux-based, and would like to be able to stream video and music to an Xbox 360 without needing to do a one-time transcode.

I’d also be happy to pay $50 for a working native Linux version. I guess the timeframe for the Linux release is still “when it’s ready”? Out of interest, what are the new features planned for the 1.0 release?

In the meantime, is there any way of running TVersity on Linux without requiring a Windows licence (i.e. vmware)? Is there any chance of this working in wine (does wine support all the video APIs etc?)?

I do not know if it works with wine or not. Native Linux version is planned and will be provided hopefully before the end of the year, although I cannot say for sure.

A Linux version if Tversity would be aw awesome… Just AWESOME. Tversity is the only app that keeps me from ditching XP. Well that and iTunes… How ironic is that, iTunes?

I’ve tried to run the application using WINE and I got it working partially. I can install it, run it, configure it. My Philips Streamium can connect to it. I can stream mp3’s and avi’s. I haven’t tested jpg’s yet but I think that will work to.

The only thing that isn’t working (yet) is the transcoding. I wanted to use TVersity because of this. I’ll try to figure out why it’s not working.

If I have time i’ll put up an how-to. Also keep an eye out on the WINE appdb (www.winehq.org)

Da-BULLS

Da-BULLS: good to know that it seems to work under Wine, except for transcoding video. Hopefully this means that with the upcoming Xbox 360 update (which allows streaming of MPEG4 SP) I should be able to just stream most of my videos without needing a Windows VM.

In terms of why transcoding doesn’t work; has Wine implemented the Windows Directshow APIs for video and audio? Presumably if they haven’t then there’s no way the transcoding stuff will work until there’s a native Linux port (using Gstreamer / libavcodec directly)?

I’d love a linux server too. I’d definitely make a minor financial contribution to encourage its development. I run under VMWare now, and it mildly sucks. I probably lose 30-50% of my transcoding performance doing that.

TVersity already uses a lot of open source stuff as it is, so I don’t think it would be much of a challenge (ignorance is bliss). If there’s lots of windows api calls in the TVersity code, the developers could do what google did with the linux version of google earth, port those calls directly to wine.

Da-BULLS: I don’t suppose you’ve had time to put up that howto yet by any chance? Or does it just work once the dlls mentioned in the entry on the Wine app database are copied across?

Any luck with looking into why transcoding isn’t working?
