Tip #6: Add non-diskless media director

with 13 comments

Generally LinuxMCE allows to create many diskless media clients – Media Directors (MD). They shouldn’t have HDD and they are boot from the core. That approach lets you possibility to have non powerful PC as Media Director. But if you don’t satisfy a boot speed or by some other reason would like to have MD with HDD it’s also possible. Just install Kubuntu 0704 on that PC and run there LinuxMCE installator. It’ll detect the core and offer you install just MD. Be sure that your core and MD are in the same network!

To play encrypted DVD you may use libdvdcss which offers accessing to the DVD content without having to bother about the decryption. Check if that library is already installed:

dpkg -l libdvdcss

If not just install it using apt-get

apt-get install libdvdcss
