Be sure to have the EPEL and rpmforge repo installed ( view other post )
then, yum install mediatomb
Edit /etc/mediatomb.conf and place the network interface mediatomb will listen. ( you will know by doing ifconfig ) Usually, it will be eth0
using ntsysv select the service mediatomb to start on startup.
then, " service mediatomb start " you should see [ok] . Else something is wrong. Google the error message to understand what is going on.
If you want to load mkv file ( HD ) PS3 won't recognize this format, so mediatomb have to convert this video format.
Add the following lines in the /etc/mediatomb/config.xml
<map from="ts" to="video/mp2t"/>
<map from="m2ts" to="video/mpeg"/>
Add the following package and tools to convert the files.
yum install mkvtoolnix
download http://twocats.free.fr/pub/h264tobox/ tsMuxeR and h264tobox untar in /usr/local/ (tsMuxeR will not untar in is proper directory)
then softlink tsMuxeR, tsMuxerGUI and h264tobox in /usr/bin/
ln -s /usr/local/tsMuxeR/tsMuxeR /usr/bin/tsMuxeR
ln -s /usr/local/tsMuxeR/tsMuxerGUI /usr/bin/tsMuxeRGUI
ln -s /usr/local/h264tobox-$(ver)/h264tobox /usr/bin/h264tobox
the script h264tobox needs the faad library ( yum install faad2 )
convert the mkv file. To do this, start the h264tobox script in the directory the movie is placed,
the software will tell you
aften, dcadec, oggdec, ogmdemux, ttaenc are missing ( they are optional ), I don't know why they are used, but for now, everything seems to work.
