MythTV Backend - No Support for Videos (not recordings)
« on: April 17, 2010, 04:48:08 am »
Just posted a question wondering how to access LinuxMCE as a UPNP client from an orbiter.  This question is different.

If I have a MythTV backend that has no capture cards, simply using it to serve up *.mpg files, how would I best access that content through LinuxMCE?

I've gone so far as to setup an nfs share to the MythTV backend and link the LinuxMCE 'public' directory to that content.  I've done this since I've found no way of playing UPNP content served up by MythTV.  I can now play the content through 'Media > Videos' from the orbiter but content is choppy.  I understand that playback using the MythTV player is better, but the MythTV player doesn't appear to have an option to play 'videos' only 'recordings'.

BTW, I know people have complained about throughput using nfs shares, but note that's not my question.  My nfs shares are setup per the wiki and that's not my question.  Throughput isn't the problem.


I have another question regar
