I had another user name but the name was spelled wrong so i just created a new one I have been working on a way to get transcoding to work with mediashare in my home for sometime. For me the challange was this is a windows free house. unix linux only and although I use linux it still has been a leaning curve. Recently some updates to nas4free extrentions have made this simple. I use nas 4 free as a data/virtual machine server in my garage. This allows me to run some windows only software that i have to have like Mitchells on demand, Vida for my volvo etc. Nas4Free is BSD unix NOT linux http://nas4free.org http://forums.nas4free.org Step One Install nas4free I used 573 but 724 is out now. http://www.nas4free.org/downloads.html Step Two Install TheBrig Step Three Create a Jail for the Serviio install Step Four Share your media by mounting a folder form the main nas drive to the Jail. See links below. TheBrig http://forums.nas4free.org/viewtopic.php?f=79&t=1654 TheBrig allows you to create and manage jails with little to no terminal work. Jails allow you to run a second distro on the same machine keeping main files like the ffmpeg from interfering with other peices of software. Serviio http://forums.nas4free.org/viewtopic.php?f=79&t=1796 My server runs: Multiple vitual box machines. (windows, mac) Serviio for media share, SubSonic to share to my phone when im not home all of my mp3s.
