I had mediatomb installed, very much disliked it. It may have been my

not mistaken.

(unless ps3mediaserver's implementation of on-the-fly transcoding lets
you fast-forward and rewind. that'd be good. mediatomb can't do that.)

It does.

Yeah, I just tried it out. Seems to do that fairly well. Bit hard for me
to test properly as my PS3's wireless connection isn't really good
enough, but it seemed to work.

afaict, though, it doesn't work with any transcoder except
mplayer/ffmpeg, and it's pretty useless without transcoding.

there's also this little gem: linux/tsMuxeR_licence.txt

"YOU MAY NOT MODIFY, ADAPT, TRANSLATE, RENT, LEASE, LOAN, SELL, REQUEST
DONATIONS OR CREATE DERIVATE WORKS BASED UPON THE SOFTWARE OR ANY PART
THEREOF."

so to put it in fedora or rpmfusion-free, you'd have to drop tsmuxer; I
think it's optional.

Yeah, I think it uses mplayer/mencoder over tsMuxer, and is configurable.


I would recommend you add the necessary infrastructure to the package to
let it run as a service; although the website doesn't widely advertise
the fact, it does actually run fine without X. I don't know if there's a
parameter to force it into 'headless' mode, but you could always hack it
by running it with an empty DISPLAY variable. (it also seems like it
doesn't save configuration across runs, which is a bit odd.)

It saves them as long as you tell it to and it has the permissions to create/save the file.
