Yes lacie boxs don't have encoders installed. You have to install then. Since, i think, you are no linux expert. I advice you to install debian squezze and test everything you want in squeeze chroot envirmont. That way you will not mess with LacieOS. Here is a tutorialNow after looking at pre-install Twonky transcoding engines, it seems that engines are missing all together on Lacie (including ffmpeg, faac- unless they are hiding somewhere and find command didn't filter them out) so transcoding web page options are disabled...so it makes me wonder, how to build ffmpeg, mkv2mpeg and maybe mencoder for Lacie box (can I just copy ffmpeg from Ubuntu over and hope it will enable transcode configuration?? ) Do suggest..is it possible to get stable versions of engines and .desc files.. as that would be helpful. It seems that this is the structure Twonky using in their user-controlled transcode architecture.
I think squeeze as a lot of encoders allready installed. If you want to install others just do, in squezze chroot enviroment
Code: Select all
apt-get install xxxxx
When you mnanage to run things on squeeze, if you want, you can try the ipkg to install directly on LacieOS.
ProbablyDoes that mean that none of Lacie Network Space/2Big boxes have enough horsepower to transcode mkv/flv/mov? I will give it a shot since I do have ssh access to the drive now.
I learned all of this by investigating and asking questions just the way you are doing and Mizself, quicknick and others having the patience to responde.Hope you dont mind me asking questions. Have a good one!
So i like to, when i have to time, do the same for others.
