I would like to setup a server(preferably linux) that can let users on the network stream music and videos.
I was think XBMC, but for some reason the web interface wont load any of the files that are stored LOCALLY on the server and i've added them via the server. So for music, ive gone into Music > Files > Add > Music Folder > Done.
I even go back into Music > Files > "Added folder Name" and it loads the files...
But, when I access the server via XBMC, doesnt work. It wont load any content. It just keeps spinning when I click music. I could be doing something wrong, but it works on the server but not through the web browser.
The other thing I can do is to take this server, share the music and video folders, and have people use a program like the XBMC Client or iTunes or VLC to load the content.
But, is there a solution like hulu or netflix that I can run locally. I know a few years ago i discovered media servers but I wasnt that interested in using them at home. Now I am.
