Looking for a feature-rich Streaming Media Server

Postby Daedalus » Thu May 10, 2007 10:12 am

Does anyone know of a good, easy-to-use streaming media server that I could use with Linux Mint?

I am looking for something similar to Orb http://www.orb.com/ . The only problems with Orb are: 1. Its Win only, and 2. For some odd reason, you need to connect to your machine through their servers. I don't understand that.

However, the browser interface for Orb is great.

I am thinking of setting up a mythTV box, and want to be able to connect to it through my Windows Mobile phone....I can do this with Orb very nicely, and it will stream video/tv/images/music to my phone.

I am wondering if there is a way to do this in Linux...Anyone know of anything?

I found "VLC", but it doesn't seem to be as user-friendly. It looks like you have to open the stream on the host first, and then connect to that stream from the client.
