    Default ushare

    I'm trying to us ushare to stream music and video to my 360. I have ushare setup and my 360 sees ushare but none of the files I'm trying to stream. When I run ushare -x it only sees the two folders I'm sharing and none of the files.

    Let me know if you need anymore info.

    Thanks
    Dan

    I did some more playing around to see what I could figure out for myself, and I think there is a problem with the install itself. I tried to uninstall it so I could re-install it and stat over. When I tried to uninstall it I got an error saying Yast can’t remove ushare, and when I try to run any ushare command, even stop, it stops after it gets through the search of the shared folders.

    OK, so I tried ushare on a clean install on a different computer and it did the exact same thing. I don't know if there's something wrong with ushare, it just doesn't like 11.3 or it's just me. I don't even need ushare anymore, now that I have an optical out on my computer the only advantage to using my 360 is being able to use a remote, but I hate to leave a problem unsolved.

    maybe it is evident by now that not many openSUSE users are willing to
    try to help you with something they have never used..

    i'd never even heard of a 'ushare' and i had to google it when i read
    your first post, about seven hours old..

    i wondered how you were using it with a '360', but i was thinking
    about the last '360' i touched/used: http://tinyurl.com/yjbnc95 :-)

    so, since you have proven to yourself it is not your machine or your
    install (did you have _any_ errors during the ushare compile?), i can
    only suggest you check all the ushare documentation and make sure you
    have it *all* set up as required, you might need to find a ushare
    guru, i'd begin by looking here:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/ushare/support
    and/or

    OH! did you notice you are trying to make a 3 to 5 year old abandoned
    project work?

    see "uShare is copyright (C) 2005-2007 Benjamin Zores. ... By lack of
    spare time, motivation and interest, uShare development is currently
    discontinued (this may change though). Don't expect release anytime
    soon :-("

    Ushare works fine regardless of activity, the problem is more likely related to the very very few formats, specific containers and codecs the xbox will play. The supported formats are found on the xbox site and will highly likely mean you'll need to transcode the files to see them on the xbox.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    I've tried a few different formats and even some files that worked when shared from a windows box, and if I remember correctly the 360 will still see a file it can't play you will just get an error message when you try to play it. Like I said before it's not something I need anymore, it just pisses me off when I can't get something to work and I can't figure out why.

    I did test this albeit with another distro but it actually has a lot more newer libs than Suse as I suspected maybe a lib change had broke it. I do concur iirc I thought it saw them. If I was you i would look at the configuration again also turn on verbose(ushare -v | less) see if you catch anything. At the moment all I can confirm is upstream works fine with certain libs(I'm just not sure it is really related but if you still can't find anything we could compare ldd output)

    I think I figured it out last night. All the config files I looked at, from other people having problems, made it look like it needed the path from root to the files you want to share. It actually wanted the path from ushare, I just added 2 more / and it works. I still can't run any ushare commands without it locking up, but that might be because it's hasn’t been updated in awhile and it doesn't play well with 11.3.
