Mediatomb only works when I am ssh in

    I have Ubuntu Server 10.04 running mediatomb. When I ssh into my server I can play videos through VLC on my laptop or my PS3. The minute I log out of my server the video stops and says "The content cannot be played".

    Not sure what is wrong.

    Sounds like you started MediaTomb in the console as user and not in daemon mode? If you start it in foreground and close the terminal - you will terminate it, you need to run it in daemon mode.

    It ended up being my folder permission settings. With my Video folder set to 777 it is now working.
