XBMC Video Server: stream/download your library contents
Regarding donations, please donate to the XBMC Foundation instead of me. While some extra cash would be great I think XBMC deserves it more than me.

Update 28.5.2014
  • Ability to customize the design (see the README for instructions)
  • Improved season listings. It is now possible to show the seasons as a list or as a grid, just like other results. The list also contains the season poster and the number of episodes in the season. When using grid mode, clicking a season will show the episode list in a separate page.
  • Single-file items are served without an M3U playlist on mobile devices, regardless of the setting that usually controls this behavior

What is the location? It says put anything here.. What would I put and how does it pertain to the site?

The proxy and reverse proxy lines. I used all kinds of different combinations. can I use http://mydns/xbmc-video-server ? I don't need the port with that correct? I use that on both lines correct?

Do I keep the /vfs at the end of these lines?

Lastly the authentication line. Do I put "Basic username:password" ?

I am not an expert in apache and to someone who doesn't know, the directions seemed rather ambiguous.

The instructions are here : https://github.com/Jalle19/xbmc-video-se...roxy-linux

The password have to be encoded as Base64

In first you have to update your application with the last version 1.4.1 ( https://github.com/Jalle19/xbmc-video-server/releases ).

If you are not see that for linux https://github.com/Jalle19/xbmc-video-se...g-on-linux / for Windows : https://github.com/Jalle19/xbmc-video-se...on-windows.

Next, you create two files ( see that : https://github.com/Jalle19/xbmc-video-se...tomization ) custom-login.css and custom-styles.css in :
Quote:xbmc-video-server\src\css\

custom-login.css is for customize the login page and custom-styles.css for the rest of the site.

You can help you by two reference CSS files who are :
- xbmc-video-server\src\css\login.css in relation with custom-login.css
- xbmc-video-server\src\css\styles.css in relation with custom-styles.css

See you ;=)

thnx but i seen this on his git page, i have it instaled on a windows machine, and i cant locate " xbmc-video-server\src\css\login.css" what i need to know is where does it install these files on windows by default.

i went into XMAPP and i can see the SRC file do we placed the css stylesheet in there? i cant see any other files folders that contain the xbmc-video-server its this im trying to locate, so i can add my CSS file to add a backround image.

Hi,

i propose a template like Green-Purple, by the two new CSS files of customization, it's here : Green-Purple CSS files

The informations about the two new CSS files of customization are here : https://github.com/Jalle19/xbmc-video-server/wiki/Interface-customization

The customizations are :
- Soft purple on the background.
- The disappearance of the blue color ( http://www.color-hex.com/color/3498db ) on buttons replaced by the same greens existing than the Watch button. I put two green colors for hover of the move of the mouse or not.
- On "Change password" page and "Login" page there is a transparency.
- For the login page, a customizable background image is possible, if it's not your choice it's a black background color.

To custom your background you have to put an image in folder :

Code:
\xbmc-video-server\src\images\

The name of background image must be named as :

Code:
bg.jpg

Some screenshots are here : Green-Purple template slideshow (see only the 19 first photos).

Template updated 01 : On 30.05.2014 at 11h00 GMT+2

Okay I setup the proxy and logged into the site again. It works but it streams very slowly now, requires almost constant buffering. Can't watch anything.
??

Edit: Worth noting, I already tested your update where m3u playlists are disabled for mobile devices. It works, no longer timeout or error.

Twiggz: is the computer where you installed XBMC Video server using wifi by any chance? That would explain why it's slow.

hey negge,


would it be possible to allow or include the "sort order function" of the films to duplicate what i have in my library, not sure if this info is accessible through API or not but if it could would be great addition, just i have films like star trek or fast and furious plus many more as they all have slightly different names so are no longer together but all over the place on your app it just sorts based on title, where as in my library ive added sort order to movie db to pull them into line and in right order.

The computer XBMC Video Server is using is connected by Ethernet cable to a router that does serve up wifi connections.

It must be something in the way that I setup the proxy, has to be.

I left <Location /xbmc-vfs> because the readme was not detailed enough to explain what this actually is.
I inserted on both proxypass and proxyreverse http://192.168.X.X:8080/vfs
authentication "Basic Thenbase64code"

is that right??

yup absolutley spot on exactly what i have set except my ip if diff of course, maybe its the port as default is port 80 and im using a diff port might be worth a try, if you use antivirus or firewall try turn those off and see it prob goes away.

ok so to change main port in apache, here is prev post and how too as port 80 is used by alot of other services you mave conflicts which i did as my server runs services on port 80 which is why i use diff port

Just to chime in here for those trying to get this to work on a single Windows machine. For the record, I thought negge's setup instructions were very clear and spot-on; I was able to access the video server from within my network without issue. Problems arose when trying to get in from the outside.

-- You need to be running XBMC Gotham. The install instructions explain this.

-- XBMC webserver must be ON. It's under Settings, Services. Pick a port, doesn't matter much. I chose 1222.

-- Make sure you can get xbmc-video-server to work correctly by navigating to localhost/xbmc-video-server. If you can't get this far, you probably did something wrong in the install instructions. Follow them exactly.

-- If you navigate to yourip:1222 (or whatever port you picked above; remember, you need to open this port in your firewall), you will get the XBMC webserver interface. Which works great. But this interface uses your XBMC master logon credentials, and controls your main XBMC interface. That's not a problem if you are the only one wanting to control this; you can completely skip xbmc-video-server and Apache and all this other stuff if that's the case. xbmc-video-server lets you specify accounts, that can each control an instance of XBMC, that will not affect the operation of your master XBMC.

-- Moving on. In xbmc-video-server backend settings, configure your hostname as your IP address, and your port as the port you picked above.

-- Probably a good idea to not have Apache listening on port 80 (the default). That's a busy port. Pick a random port, preferably something high, like 36331. Don't go over 65500. Open this port in your firewall.

-- Go to your XAMPP install directory (for me, c:\xampp), and navigate to apache\conf. Making sure Apache is not started, Edit the "httpd.conf" file. Find "Listen 80", change to "Listen 36331" (or whatever you picked as your Apache port above). Save.

-- Go into the "extra" folder. Edit "httpd-xampp.conf". Scroll to the bottom, find the "# New XAMPP security concept" block. Delete that entire block. Save.

-- From XAMPP control panel, go to Config in upper right, then "Service and Port Settings". Change "80" to the Apache port you picked above. I'm not entirely sure this step is necessary, but can't hurt.

-- Start Apache. Confirm it is running without displayed errors.

-- Navigate to yourip:yourapacheport/xbmc-video-server/ (so, for example, http://72.191.128.186:36331/xbmc-video-server/ ), and provided you did everything above correctly, you should be in.

Hope this helps someone!



oh and i just spoted your athentication line is wrong default should be

RequestHeader set Authorization "Basic eGJtYzp4Ym1j"
