i'm using an ubuntu server to store all my videos. I've found different howtos to install AirVideo on an Ubuntu Server but they doesn't work. Can you please provide also an Ubuntu Installer?

The following works for me on Ubuntu Server 10.04:

1. Download Alpha 5 of the jar file: http://inmethod.com/air-video/download/linux/alpha5/AirVideoServerLinux.jar
(Check her for newer: http://www.inmethod.com/forum/posts/list/1856.page )

2. Download the source code for the patched ffmpeg: http://inmethod.com/air-video/licenses.html

3. At the command line, run the following to install tools needed to build the ffmpeg and to run the Air Video server:
sudo apt-get install faac libmp3lame-dev libfaad-dev mpeg4ip-server git-core pkg-config

4. Install the latest x264 packages from here (libx264-xxx & libx264-dev):

NOTE: Direct link for the latest UNOFFICIAL x264 packages for Ubuntu 10.04: ftp://itsuki.fkraiem.org/pub/x264/

5. Build the custom ffmpeg and install it in /usr/local/bin by performing the following commands:
./configure --enable-pthreads --disable-shared --enable-static --enable-gpl --enable-libx264 --enable-libmp3lame


sudo make install

***NOTE: to uninstall ffmpeg perform: make -n install (from compile directory)

6. Create a configuration file in e.g. /usr/local/etc/airvideo.properties, containing:

path.ffmpeg = /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg
path.mp4creator = /usr/bin/mp4creator
path.faac = /usr/bin/faac
password =
subtitles.encoding = windows-1250
subtitles.font = Verdana
folders = Movies:/path/to/my/Movies,MoreMovies:/path/to/more/Movies

(Note: Replace the value for “folders” with something that match your system.)

7. Create a file /etc/init/airvideo.conf with this content:

start on runlevel [2345]
stop on shutdown

exec sudo -H -n -u root /usr/bin/java -jar /usr/local/lib/airvideo/AirVideoServerLinux.jar /usr/local/etc/airvideo.properties

NOTE: This will tell UpStart to run the server process as user root upon reaching one of the runlevels 2-5 and stop the server when the system shuts down. respawn tells it to restart the server if it crashed.

You can also start/stop AirVideo manually by issuing the following commands:
sudo start airvideo
sudo stop airvideo
