Some of you might remember my little escapade w/ FreeNas a few weeks ago, and subsequently migrating my file server to Linux. The Server is running absolutely perfect. Once I got the hang of managing it via SSH, I honestly find it easier and less cumbersome than FreeNas's webUI. I installed Firefly on the server, which integrates perfectly Rhythmbox. Transmission on the server.. again, perfect. The webUI's for both apps are simple and easy to use. Streaming Video, was a little more of an issue on the client end. It worked perfectly on the server end. The client end, choosing Videos/Movies to watch, was a bit more cumbersome. Did some googling, and found XBMC. This app makes it so simple. It can also play music, but I prefer it just for Video. It's also got a way to watch some select streaming TV, which is also pretty cool If you're running some sort of home server, and you've never tried it, I'd recommend giving it a whirl. I'm sure to some of you, this app is old news, but it's new to me, and I really like it. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
