New build: https://copy.com/VOUzJxtmiQVS (Mac)

 

This should fix the issue with the ffprobe error

 

Thanks, I added only a Movies section this time and the great news is that the movies now play properly both in the web browser and via iOS. There is however no artwork in the views..ie posters etc. I did still notice errors in the log: http://pastebin.com/z9i4wYCE

You're missing libgdiplus

InnerException: System.DllNotFoundException
        /usr/local/lib/libgdiplus.dylib

You could try with macports?

 

$sudo port install libgdiplus +universal

$sudo ln -s /opt/local/lib/libgdiplus.dylib /usr/local/lib/libgdiplus.dylib

Thank you, I installed libgdiplus using macports and verified that it is present in /usr/local/lib but now for some reason It will not let me start the server. I deleted the old version (just in case that was a problem) and re downloaded the version that worked before...but with no luck. Here is what the log says: http://pastebin.com/xKwHk5Gu

 

edit - I rebuilt Mono and then tried again, this time the server started without the above issues. It is scanning now and so far I am seeing these sort of errors in the log: http://pastebin.com/4YMqRYpK

 

edit2 - The artwork etc is now there and all seems to be working very well. Playing from the iOS app works fine, via a web browser works fine...using the XBMC app it would not play anything until I turned on the option to Stream rather than use SMB but now seems to be fine too..so all in all great performance on a 64 bit Mac using OSX 10.9. There are still a lot of errors in the logs as shown in the first edit...but it does not seem to cause any negative effects. Hopefully some other people will try out and report back on their findings. Just FYI, I added Movies, TV Shows, Music and Music Videos.

 

PS. Just tested using XBMC on an iPad and happy to report that's also working great

In the other thread about the linux server, you mentioned UNC -> local path substitution:

 

http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/947-linux-server/page-11&do=findComment&comment=56544

 

Are there any plans to pursue this? I am thinking just of a dashboard configuration screen that allows the user to enter /some/local/path/name for \\servername from UNC. That way the clients on the LAN would be able to use file sharing instead of streaming.

 

This would be quite flexible since the linux server could share local files, or if smbnetfs is installed, it could work with any SMB server on the LAN, since smbnetfs just mounts the local network neighborhood in a directory.

The error "System.Attribute.GetHashCode" mean your trying to run on a unpatched version of mono. This can happen when you have multiple version of Mono. Check your path variable or go to the first post and copy paste in a file the section with the export variable(change the path to your mono version) and run it like the instructions says before launching mb3. This will ensure you are using your version of mono.

 

As for the "No process to kill" it is benign error.

That makes sense, it is all pretty much voodoo to me but must say I am delighted with the performance now that all is working. Hopefully, your team will be able to create an easy install for Mac/Linux like the Plex Server has and then I am sure your user base will expand significantly. Once there is an easier way for install I will be recommending this to users of a skin I develop for XBMC which currently has Plex integration.

 

Just as a side note, and maybe not the correct place to ask, but does anyone know if there is a setting to get the top 250 rating from IMDB scraped into the Movies? The XBMC movie scraper has this built in and works out very useful for creating views such as the Top 250 films etc

ffmpeg is trying to convert the srt to utf8 and fail because the codepage is not available.

 

Try converting your srt file to utf-8 via iconv in a terminal:

iconv -f WINDOWS-1252 -t utf-8 "/home/xbmc/TV Shows/GrimmGrimm.S03E01.HDTV.x264-LOL.srt" -o "/home/xbmc/TV Shows/Grimm.S03E01.HDTV.x264-LOL-converted.srt"

Then move the original and rename the converted to the original name.

Tikuf,  the language is Portuguese, i made some tests here and after the conversion produces strange caracters.

 

Original:

2
00:00:02,001 --> 00:00:04,499
As negociações para o bebê
já podem começar.

Converted:

2
00:00:02,001 --> 00:00:04,499
As negociações para o bebê
já podem começar.

With english subtitle this not happens.

 

thanks

I am not sure if this is a unix bug or not (no way for me to test atm) .

 

I just tested on my system and it did look fine to me (but it may not to you please look at attached file). The correct encoding is WINDOWS-1252 I renamed the file to Grimm - S03E01.por.srt to match my file and the language .

 

Mb created the .ass file as it should. Please open it in a text editor and have a peek lmk if it is not correct https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1349444/25a49aa4-99bf-b580-3e39-8b265933263d.ass

New build: link removed (Linux and Mac)

 

For Linux, mediabrowser can now open ISO(Stream detail and web client streaming) via sudo, mount and umount.

 

In order to activate this feature, you need to add these lines via visudo(don't forget to change the username to the one running mediabrowser):

Defaults:jsmith !requiretty
jsmith ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /bin/mount
jsmith ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /bin/umount

With the help of abeloin's testing, I've taken steps to make sure Trakt is mono compatible. I'll be looking at my other plugins as well to see that they are also.

My compliments ! It seems that is working like the windows version.

 

I have installed it on my little server linux armv7h based, that run on Trimslice (http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv7/nvidia/trimslice).

 

I'd like to know if also the plugins are mono compatible.

 

Plugins I've tested so far are:

  • Trakt (works)
  • Rotten Tomatoes (works)
  • Anime (works)
  • Automatic BoxSet (works)
  • Xbmc Metadata Saver (works)

I have started to do some test on my ARM linux server, most of the functionalities are working fine, but the "Play" function not.

 

Some questions:

 

I expect that the mono code works fine like in x86 version. But there are some components that are platform specific:

 

  • ffmpeg
  • ffprobe
  • libsqlite3.so.0.8.6  (32 & 64) 

 

 Is this list complete ? are mandatory to have MB3 working ?

 

The "Play" functionality need ffmpeg ?

I have replaced the x86 version of ffmpeg and ffprobe with the ARM versions. But it seems that the system is unable to play the movies. Here the log of ffmpeg

It seems that the Player is doing some kind of conversion, but my server has not enough power to do this in real-time, there is a way to avoid this ?

[libx264 @ 0x5faa0] using cpu capabilities: none!

Is the issue the version you are using is not detecting the cpu capabilities and therefore the threading is all wrong.

I have started to do some test on my ARM linux server, most of the functionalities are working fine, but the "Play" function not.

 

Some questions:

 

I expect that the mono code works fine like in x86 version. But there are some components that are platform specific:

 

  • ffmpeg
  • ffprobe
  • libsqlite3.so.0.8.6  (32 & 64) 

 

 Is this list complete ? are mandatory to have MB3 working ?

 

The "Play" functionality need ffmpeg ?

 

libsqlite is required, download the source code from http://www.sqlite.org/download.html and compile it for your Arm arch.

ffmpeg is required for image extraction and web client streaming(Play).

ffprobe is required to get the metadata about the file.

Mono's libgdiplus is required for image processing in the web client.

 

I doubt you will get good performance with web streaming on Arm because if the file is not webm(vpx) it need to be transcoded.

You can use a client that doesn't require transcoding.

 

Some example:

 

XBMB3C: plugin for xbmc https://github.com/MediaBrowser/MediaBrowser.XBMC/releases/tag/plugin.video.xbmb3c-0.7.5

Mediabrowser.Theater: apps for windows http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/2142-media-browser-theater-public-alpha/

 

See the support section in the forum for other clients and platforms. http://mediabrowser.tv/clients/

 

 By the way make sure to use a ffmpeg version built for armv7 without neon, which the tegra 2 is based on.

or if your videos are mp4 baseline profile with aac then that will allow you to use the web client without transcoding.
