MediaTomb is an open source (GPL) UPnP MediaServer with a nice web user 
interface, it allows you to stream your digital media through your home network
and listen to/watch it on a variety of UPnP compatible devices.

The default installation does not have any configured media containers. You will 
need to add your media folders to the mediatomb database using the mediatomb 
configuration interface after install.

MediaTomb does NOT support XBox 360 at this time, although external transcoding
may work.  I cannot provide further details on this topic at this time.

All required shared library files are included and the runtime library path 
was set during compile so that LD_LIBRARY_PATH should not be needed. If you get
"error while loading shared libraries: ..." errors during startup, edit the script to enable the LD_LIBRARY_PATH which should resolve the issue.
