    video server app

    Hi, newbie here. I've set up ubuntu server with LAMP. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good app to stream video through out the house, and possibly beyond in the future.

    are you wanting to stream video through a web interface or are you wanting to stream video to your TV/XBOX/PS3 and the like?

    I'd like to do both eventually, but yes, to the tv and other computers in the house

    I would check out Mythbuntu and see what you can find there, That is ubuntu's HTPC OS.

    I just export the appropriate directories off the server with NFS or, occasionally, Samba, mount them on the clients, and play the files directly. I've never really seen the need for some type of specialized software unless you want to use DLNA clients like a PS3. In those cases, ps3mediaserver gets high marks from its users.
