x360mediaserve - Stream Music To Your 360 In Linux

Written by Matt on April 7, 2008 – 7:27 pm -

Remember that time you threw your controller at your Xbox 360 when you tried streaming music to your Xbox, only to learn once again that Microsoft hates Linux? Now, with x360mediaserve, you can easily stream thousands of songs from your Linux box straight to your 360! I’ve simplified installing and setting up x360mediaserve into three easy steps! Note that for the server to work, you need java, lame,faad,flac and sox already installed.

1) INSTALLATION

I’ve written a script to download the tar.gz, extract it, and then delete the tar.gz. I’ve also provided you with a simple command that will download, run, and then delete the script itself. To install, all you have to do is paste this into a terminal:

wget https://linuxhack3r.com/Downloads/Scripts/x360.sh && bash x360.sh && rm x360.sh

2) STARTING THE SERVER

Using the following command, you can start the server by pasting it into a terminal, adding it to your menu, or even adding it to your services (so it starts everytime you boot).

cd Programs/x360mediaserve-0.0.2/ && ./start

3) CONFIGURE THE SERVER

Don’t worry, this part is as easy as the rest of this tutorial. After the media server is running, click on the link below:

http://127.0.0.1:7000/configure

Using this simple configuration tool, you’ll need to type in the exact path to your music directory. Friendly name is the name that’ll show up on your Xbox when you go to browse your music. Everything else you don’t need to mess with, but hey, it’s your computer.
