Well, the sharing options page still just shows “Share music”, not “Share videos”, so I guess there’s no option for sharing videos yet? Also, I would try some QuickTime movie first before trying mpg4 😉
Ok, as there where no negative reports here, I updated to iTunes6.
Indeed it seems there is no problem with mt-daapd.
Video share does not seem to work with iTunes itself either.
At least there is no option “Share my video’s” besides “Share my music”
And there is also no option “Look for shared video’s” in iTunes too ..
Perhaps that will pop-up in iTunes7 …
Yup, and that was my experience as well. Bottom line, if iTunes doesn’t support it iTunes to iTunes, then mt-daapd can’t support it. If iTunes *would* play remotely hosted movies, then why wouldn’t it do it iTunes to iTunes?
If it doesn’t show up in your shared libraries, then it’s a multicast issue.
You can run mt-daapd with -d9 and a logfile specified in the config file, but I can’t imagine you’ll see any more information — it’s apparently working, since you can see and use it from the mac.
All you can probably do is run a sniffer on the XP box and the linux box while starting iTunes — see if you can see what’s not going. See if the linux box isn’t getting the mdns queries, or if it’s not responding to the mdns queries, or whatever.
