To begin let me tell about my set up, two box running Linux Mint 17 64bit, one on my living room and the other on my small room they are connected directly to my Thomson wi-fi router with RJ45 cables with help of TP-LINK AV200+, on the living room side, together this two machines have 7 TB of HDD.
Things that you need for this "kind of tutorial"
Linux Mint 17 or any other based in Ubuntu/Debian
OpenSSH Client (install by default in Mint)
XBMC 13.2 (Kodi from 14.0)
Ok I have this new board that was 8 Sata ports so I only need 1 box running and something like Raspberry Py with Raspbian on the living room to stream to my TV.
Stream Your Files Over The House
So I have this idea that I could stream any file over the house with a tablet or tablets, and this idea is kind of multi room stream with mix off hardware.
what I test and is working..
..my two box running Linux Mint 17 with XBMC on each, but this is not necessary if you have one in on location and stream all your files to like the Py, only need to configure the XBMC to get the files from that machine and the same this for the tablet/tablets.
My tablet that I test and is working ONDA V989 and the XBMC for android.
Mint 17 up and running open terminal and type
sudo apt-get install openssh-serverwill ask for password
if this is the machine that you will have your files stored then go to network settings and write the IP Address something like 192.168.1.99
if you have other machine like me, then on that machine open Nemo..
when you make a connection to server form the client side, you only need
ex: /media/you name/in my case the folder xbmc-hd is a 3 TB drive only for hd content, I have this set to
ex: /media/ricardo/xbmc-hd on XBMC clientthis client is the box on my living room and tablet.
xbmc grate software open source and do everything as media center , setting up for remote stream..
you can see this error "could not connect to network server", your pc IP Address is wrong..
after all settings correctly applied it should look like this, however none of the files you see are there, this is Linux and you can make a text file ending in .mkv and add the cover!
