Media machine - phase 1

, posted: 30-Sep-2006 15:12

so, i had a spare machine... whacked a ubuntu cd in, booted, pressed Next 3 times, rebooted again and had dapper drake.... plugged in a network cable, and patched it (dapper outta the CD is a little flakey) so, OS sorted - i started Adept, and installed amarok. Installed the web remote script for from amarok's "Get hot new things". plugged the machine's audio out into the stereo's "Minidisk" input grabbed my pda (Tungsten X), fired up the browser, and pointed it at music machine's IP:1234.. - now i can remote controll the music and see all the album art and other pretties. nifty now i need to get a video capture card or something.
