Hi, i have a problem with android on s3 samsung and xbmc 12.2 frodo.
I have install mediatomb on server linux ubuntu 12.10 on vm oracle on my windows 7 pc.
I try to launch mediatomb on server and call upnp on android but without success...
I install xbmc on my windows 7 and try to call upnp....success....
Ok, why windows see the mediatomb and android no?!?

Do I read your post correctly - you see Mediatomb from windows on the same PC that Mediatomb runs on?

If so, I strongly suspect because you are running it in VM, it cannot be seen elsewhere on your network. Do you have a third device on your network you can use to check?
I create a vm with linux server 12.10 on my pc with windows 7.
I have installed mediatomb on vm and i have installed xbmc on my pc with windows 7 (same pc when have vm).
I have installed xbmc on my samsung s3 android.
When i use xbmc on my windows 7 or another pc with xbmc i see mediatomb but on android no i don't see never... why?

Ah sftp not function in windows linux or android why?!? if i use filezilla function well....
To confirm:

To (hopefully) help locate the source of the problem.
1. If you use your Windows 7 XBMC to share via UPnP, can your Samsung S3 XBMC see it?
2. If you use your Samsung S3 XBMC to share via UPnP, can your Win 7 PC see it?
1) Start xbmc win7 and android.
2) In system->service->upnp i check all 3 point in win7 and android.
3) Search upnp and win7 found mediatomb and android, android found only xbmc on win7.
4) If i search a folder from win7 to android, i find nothing.
5) If i search a folder from andorid to win7, i found mediatomb folder but the video don't start.

Need another informations? thanks for your help!!
I think Windows is probably blocking the VM UPNP, but my first concern is that the android machine won't play videos from the win7 machine.
Can you post a debug log from your Android machine when you try to play videos from the win7 PC?
How to post instructions are here.
Ok have this log in my folder
xbmc.log -> http://nopaste.info/22b6a3cb49.html
xbmc.old.log -> http://nopaste.info/d321107e62.html

The following is from your log when you try to play:

For those better versed than I am HuhBlush is this a networking issue or a file format issue? or something else..
oh...it's possible contact he?
In the absence of anyone picking up something obvious from your logfileSmile

I think you may have a wifi bandwidth problem streaming to your android phone. To rule this out there is a test you can do as follows:
Install iperf on both your win7 pc and android phone (there are iperf apps in the Google play store).

On your Win7 machine download iperf and open up a cmd prompt in the directory you have iperf.exe saved. Confirm your IP address:
Then run:
iperf -s
Leave this open and running.

On your android phone run the following iperf command:
iperf -c x.x.x.x -t60 -i10
Where x.x.x.x is the IP address of your win7 pc.

Then post your results back.
