Hi,

and then .. Data is corrupted
Ubuntu x64 9.10 Karmic Koala

Try copying the command PMS uses to launch mencoder from the log and see what errors you're getting. Also: does your video have embedded ASS subtitles with built-in fonts? They'll cause the standard mencoder builds to segfault. If that's your problem, check out this thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=231

ps3mediaserver needs builds from minimum mid-2008 to work correctly !
if you are using Ubuntu based distribution, you can get mplayer/mencoder binaries from there: https://launchpad.net/~rvm/+archive/ppa

PS: If anyone is skilled enough to make packaging of ps3mediaserver for any distributions out there (good luck), well I'll be happy to help :p

It's not quite according to debian policies, but a working ubuntu/debian package is available on my blog here: http://www.noteng.no/geekblog/?p=347
It places all files in /opt/pms and adds this initscipt to /etc/init.d

Your release is missing some basic copyright information I need to provide with the package. For now I just wrote © Shagr4th 2009, and Shagr4th as author (should be in form of: «full name email@example.com»

Is there a way to make pms look for the configfiles in another location, like /etc/pms?
Ideally configs should be in /etc, shellscript and tsmuxer in /usr/bin, jar files in /var/lib/pms and docs (README and FAQ) in /usr/share/doc or something like that...

also, I saw a bunch of licenses inside the jar, are all those used? and witch license for what?

Well for those telling about PPAś and links on blogs or sites to working deb/ubuntu pkgś you dont need any of that..

Just
sudp apt-get install mplayer
sudo apt-get install mencoder
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

and so on and you will get the stuff that works with PMS. Why make it harder than it have to be ;-)
I only use apt-get and PMS works without problems...

The whole point of the package is to install PMS with apt-get (or similar). I totaly agree with you, but whenever I come across a great app that hasn't been packaged yet, I usually package it. I don't like the idea of having apps installed that apt know nothing about.
My package will copy the pms-linux files to /opt/pms, ad a slightly modified version of PMS.sh as /usr/bin/pms and add a initscript for those who need to start at boot.

Umbra,

You were right. During my last set of builds, I was preparing with Medibuntu and PPAs.
I reinstalled Karmic tonight and everything is working with build 383 from SVN using stock ffmpeg, mplayer, mencoder.
There are things about SUSE I prefer, but am glad I tried it this way.
