    Can anyone help me to test SMB on Geexbox, mplayer wii no problems there [​IMG]

    But how do i get geexbox samba working....?


    Code:
    f you want to use shoutcast/icecast etc., remember to set long blacklist or short white list in GEEXBOX/etc/netstream. Better still, just define a few netstreams pointing to the broadcasts you desire and disable shoutcast/icecast scan. The reason for this is because every broadcast url obtained by GeeXboX from scanning the server is saved in Wii memory as a playlist file. Thousands of such small files soon eat up all available space. For uPnP shares over lan, avoid exporting huge and complex directories.
    Code:
    Network shares (NFS/Plan 9 shares must be added manually before boot, uPnP shares are auto-discovered and mounted after boot, Samba/Windows shares can be used either way)
    HTTP/UDP/RTP/RSTP network streams (Shoutcast, Icecast, LAN unicast, Multicast and VOD) (addresses manually defined before boot)
    How do i get this to work? I need help putting the line into GEEXBOX,etc/netstream im sure it's not the same type of line as mplayerwii, please help anyone who knows.

    Add orb in your list too Dj, it uses the internet channel to wifi to your pc for media.
    I've tried it a while back, as far as I remember it wasn't great on big files, but that may have changed, worth looking into.

    no wireless on geexbox - wii linux doesn't support it properly yet AFAIK
