MyMediaSystem (MMS) on Xenial Xerus (16.04-LTS) HowTo

MMS on Ubunut Server 16.04 LTS Since I couldn’t convince my environment to use Kodi or whatever I had to build a new MMS for Xenial Xerus (Ubuntu Server 16.04_x64_LTS). This blog-post describes the installation and setup of an Ubuntu server and the configuration of MMS (MyMediaSystem). There are two possibilities to install MMS:

  • from a .deb file [link] (18MB)
  • do it your own (build it with g++) [link] (47MB)

The howto will also cover an installation and configuration of openbox as a simple windows manager and a few basic configurations of your server (autologin with systemd) and MMS.
The focus was to make MMS use the new ffmpeg version, since the old one is heavily outdated. I’ve even removed the old intern ffmpeg sources to save space. The compiler is: $ gcc version 5.3.1 20160330 (Ubuntu 5.3.1-13ubuntu3). The configure file was fixed quick and dirty for this compiler version. Don’t expect clean code – nowhere! I don’t have much time.
