  • Hi there

    I’m a total mediatomb/streaming noob so I really need some help. I have just got a new LG Smart TV and I want my home server (Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS) to stream my movies to the tv. I have mediatomb set up and the TV can connect and play mkv files (without subtitles though, but I will start another discussion about that). What I need now is to have mediatomb stream my iso files since the tv can’t handle them alone. I have tried the setups given in http://sourceforge.net/p/mediatomb/discussion/440751/thread/fef402c5/ (not the bash file version) but they do not work. I have also found this guide: https://vanalboom.org/node/10 but I don’t know if it works better with MEncoder instead of VLC.

    Can anyone help me set up this stuff? After reading a bit on http://www.videolan.org/doc/streaming-howto/en/ I think it might be a codec problem because the TV says something like “wrong file format”.

    Here is my config.xml: http://pastebin.com/CgqKXzHS
