Hi there. Forgive me if this seem like a silly question but here we go.
I am attempting to make a streaming DLNA server that feeds off a external drive (via Lubuntu OS), transcodes the stream and plays on a PS3.
I have attempted to use PS3 media server and it, well, is making me want to beat my skull in with a meat mallet. I have since moved on to LXIMediaCenter.
It was all going hunky dory until I found of that the program needs a backend profile that runs as a user. No problem.
Issue is I need to have permission set on /media/user/"External" to be read by all users etc.
I have tried both setting via Gui and command line (chmod 777 etc) no love. It "accepts" the change but never actually changes, *insert meat mallet into hand*
Running 12.10 Lubuntu on a Mac Mini.
External connected via usb 2.0.
Anyway to do this?
Also, if anyone knows a forced transcoding DLNA server (not Ps3 media server, servio or mediatomb) that would work let me know.
Thanks as always
