Getting your XBox360 to Connect to an Ubuntu Box

Owning an XBox360, and using it as a Media Center a lot by running Connect360 on my Mac, I wanted to stream Music from my Ubuntu Notebook, too. Looking around I found this little nifty tool x360mediaserve
To get this working to stream to you XBox you need to do the following:

  1. Install all the dependencies: sudo apt-get install faad flac sox lame sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-jre
  2. Unzip the x360mediaserve: tar -xvf x360mediaserve-x.x.x.tar.gz
  3. Start the Tool: cd x360mediaserve-x.x.x && ./start
  4. Configure: go to http://127.0.0.1/configure set the Music Folder, and the name

Your Done!
Enjoy all your Media on your XBox360.
