If you wish to install Mediatomb UPNP Media Server on the A.C. Ryan just download the file at this link: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mediat ... 2el.tar.gz
This packages can be used as an addon to the existing vendor firmware (no reflashing required) on various embedded devices. There are absolutely no dependencies on external packages, the binaries are statically linked and have no dependencies.
What does that mean? It means that you only have to extract that file anywhere you want on the A.C. Ryan; yea! even your HDD which is where I extracted mediatomb folder and run it from there. Actually it must be run from the extracted directory. Once you extracted to the A.C. Ryan (HDD/USB/usr/local etc..) just "cd" to your mediatomb directory and enter command ./mediatomb.sh. The first time you run mediatomb it will automatically create the config directory where two very important files will reside: config.xml and mediatomb.db (database). If you want to be able to close your terminal connection without shutting down mediatomb issue the command ./mediatomb.sh &
Now at this point your database is empty; you need to put some stuff in there. There is a somewhat intuitive Web Interface to help you with that. With mediatomb running enter on your favorite web browser your A.C. Ryan IP Address followed by mediatomb port #49152.
For me it's : 192.168.0.102:49152
Now you have a pretty web interface to populate your database with some nice feeds from the internet or local content; finding the proper link is the hard part.
You can now access mediatomb content thru the A.C. Ryan UPNP folder.
This is as easy as it gets!!!
Unfortunately this optware package is using VER 0.11.0 the latest one is VER 0.12.1 which fix the streaming for YouTube which just recently change the way to handle their feed. Maybe a static optware package Ver 0.12.1 is around the corner you never know.
