xbmsx v0.8 is now available, (xbmsx by -rx- is a xbmp/xbmc xstream server for mac os x). from the readme: "i recompiled the binary with frodo's xbmc-compatibility-patch, and this seems to have gotten rid of some directory browsing problems i was having with xbmc and xbmsx v0.7. it also seems (on initial tests) to be compatible with xbmp and panther."

i am not sure if this should be in the bug discussion forum or not,
but here goes.

i installed xbmsx 0.8, and tried it out. in xbmc the sound from
my mp3´s laggs but my .m4a files dont... i find it odd, but not sure if
it is bug. it could be that im running on a 10base network. but i dont know, xbmp did not lag when playing mp3´s...

xbmsx v0.9 for mac os x
released: 04/11-2003
author: -rx-

xbmsx (the mac os x gui for xbox media server) by -rx-
xbmsx is a os x front-end for xbms, the unix streaming server for xbox media player. it's implemented as a system preference, and an optional startupitem.


system requirements:
- networked mac running 10.2+
- networked xbox running xbox media player or xbox media center

history:

v0.9
- added support for mac os x 10.3 (panther)

v0.8
- added support for xboxmediacenter (xbmc)
recompiled binary with frodo's xbmc-compatibility-patch
fixed directory browsing problems with xboxmediacenter

setup:
if you have an older version of xbmsx installed, it's a good idea to run the installer, but choose "uninstall" to clear out all the old files. then choose the "full install". once it's done, open system preferences, click xbmsx, configure the server, and hit the "save changes" button to update the xbms.conf file. be sure that you fill in the user, and choose paths for all the files. xbms will not run correctly if this file is not saved first. hit the "rescan" button to see if the boxes are all filled in (and to check the status in general).

also make sure you also setup xbmp/c to look for your server by using these tags in the files on your xbox (bbedit with ftp works perfectly for this). replace 10.0.1.2 with the location of your mac.

xbox media player's config.xml file
[share]
[name]mac stream[/name]
/@10.0.1.2
[cachesize]256[/cachesize]
[/share]

xboxmediacenter's xboxmediacenter.xml file
[bookmark]
[name]mac stream[/name]
[path]xns://10.0.1.2:1400/[/path]
[/bookmark]

then you should be ready to enjoy movies streamed to you xbox from your mac!

what's installed
xbms into /usr/bin/
xbms.conf into /etc/
xbmsx.prefpane into /library/preferencepanes
xbox media server into /library/startupitems
xbms.log in /users/you/library/logs*
xbms.pid in /users/you/library/logs*
*these get created when xbmsx is turned on

thanks:
fansubbers, who gave me a reason to do all this.
the xbox media player crew, of course.
