Streaming Video to the TV

Yesterday, I installed kissdx on my Ubuntu server. Thanks to this nice little server application I am now able too stream my music and videos direct to my Kiss DP-558 from my computer.

It is quite easy to set up, the only mess was that I have to change the following lines in the Makefile:
# remove -liconv below if your system has libiconv built in
$(CC) -o $@ $(OBJS) -ldvdread -liconv -ljpeg -lm

to:
# remove -liconv below if your system has libiconv built in
$(CC) -o $@ $(OBJS) -ldvdread -ljpeg -lm

Then I just changed some paths in the kissdx.conf-file and started with:
kissdx -c kissdx.conf

I walked to my TV and let my DP-558 search for a PC-link server. Then I looked at Road Runner.

Cool, I found this link when looking for information on my kissdx installation.

If you are interested in more information this forum is a great resource:

There is also a dude in there who continuously creates deb-packages for ubuntu. His post named "Easy installation on Ubuntu":
