    Here is the instruction :
    1. Download Paul's Alpha 5.1 update from page 1 and extract it in you share folder
    2. Copy simple.php to index.php in extracted SMS4PBa51 folder
    3. Install lighttpd. The easiest wau to install this by having intalling ipkg from optware.
    If you haven't installed optware, then you need to do this first
    Check this website below how to install optware
    Installation of Optware on the D-Link DNS-323 and Conceptronic CH3SNAS
    4. Add mime.types definition in lighttpd.conf
    See thread #31 i page 3
    5. link directory where your video/music/photo reside in SMS4PBa51 root folder

    Hi Guys, I'm completely new to this! Like most of you here, I have a collection of files that i'd like to view on my playbook which is how i got here! I've installed the latest version, got it up and running and can access the samples via my playbook browser - great! When I add mklinks to directories that hold my video and refresh the page, I don't see them!! Am I missing something out? It's doing my head in!!

    Example:
    C:\sms4pb>mklink /d Test D:\Videos\
    symbolic link created for Test <<===>> D:\Videos\

    Then refresh browser on PB - don't see my files!!

    C:\sms4pb>mklink /d Test D:\Videos\
    symbolic link created for Test <<===>> D:\Videos\
    The links should be created in the docroot folder. Navigate to "C:\sms4pb\docroot", create the links & it'll work.

    An alternative option for streaming media on a playbook (or any other device) using RSS feeds.
    I have updated my web application at http://rssvideos.somee.com where you can create an RSS feed with the videos files stored on a NAS server. (Use option 3).
    I have tested its use with an .mp4 file which was successful. To create the RSS feed you need to provide the address of your NAS box and a list of files. You can either add the RSS file created to the NEWS application (subscribe to feed) or in the browser go to the hyperlink for the file created which takes the form of 'http://rssvideos.somee.com/users/' & name of file created.

    All feedback appreciated.

    Hi Dony71,

    I would like also to configure my router Asus WL-500W with optware by installing ligthttpd on it. All my videos are on my NAS server.

    How can I map them in lighttpd.conf. I don't know how to do that ?

    Even best, if you don't mind to details all the steps, I would be very happy

    Thanks

    Eric

    Eric,

    I have tested the file creation on my Western Digital 'My Book' NAS and it worked correctly.
    My NAS has a share called Public which is accessible via the built-in web server running on port 8080, with the root path to the files at /Public/WWW/WWW-pub. Any files under that path can be accessed directly using a web browser with http://192.168.1.97:8080.

    Any file that is to streamed on the playbook needs to be accessible as a direct http address, using the structure above. If I have a file stored at /Public/WWW/WWW-pub/Videos/test.avi, the direct address would be http://192.168.1.97:8080/Videos/test.avi

    The xml file created when used with an RSS application (Playbook NEWS App) provides a means of listing/viewing files over multiple directories.

    Hopefully I have explained what it can do, effectively it is a file aggregator that allows one RSS feed to provide access to all videos stored on a NAS webserver.
