Here’s a quick guide that shows you how to turn your linux box into a streaming media center. It might be helpful for some of you Linux-addicts (like me). Some people were complaining this is GUI but heck, GUI is the next step for Linux so it can go more mainstream, no beginners can deal with Linux command prompt, I believe it’s waaay harder than DOS.
This guide assumes that you have a Linux-based computer available and are ready to begin the installation process immediately. If this is not the case, you should set up a Linux-based environment to use. It doesn’t really matter which distro you are using, but for the sake of simplicity, we are going to use Ubuntu in this demonstration since Ubuntu has a large following and the needed software is already in the repositories. If your distro does not have a pre-compiled package of GNUMP3d available, you will need to compile it yourself.
