Description Salman 2007-09-14 23:25:53 UTC
From the website (
uShare is a UPnP (TM) A/V & DLNA Media Server. It implements the server component that provides UPnP media devices with information on available multimedia files. uShare uses the built-in http server of libupnp to stream the files to clients.

Reproducible: Always

Thanks , working with my xbox 360
Comment 5 Ryan 2007-11-26 03:15:38 UTC
one comment i just found, i would like to add the the following to the conf.d and the appropiate tag in the init.d (-p flag) to keep the random port from coming up on each reboot.

# Port to listen to (default is random from IANA Dynamic Ports range)
Comment 6 Matteo Spreafico 2007-12-24 21:20:43 UTC
Latest release of uShare is 1.1a.


    * Support for XboX 360 dashboard Fall Update (.avi and .divx now are supported)
    * DLNA support is not enabled by default, as not mandatory.
    * Some configure script fixes and better support for cross-compilation.
    * Fixed network interface discovery on MacOSX.
    * Much more complete DLNA support through external libdlna.
    * Telnet Control interface.
    * Support for FLAC and HDMOV files.
    * FreeBSD 64bit and MacOSX build fix.
    * Newly written configure script.

A friend of mine ask me to fix the ebuilds so they can work with 1.1a so after search about the program I have new ebuilds to work with 1.1a.

Short summary about the changes:

 - ushare now has two use flags: nls and dlna. 
 - dlna provides support for the open-source implementation of DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) via libdlna.
 - New USHARE_USER variable has been added to conf.d/ushare. This variable tells the init script to run ushare under non-root account. If no user is provided, root will be used then.
 - Content about using an specific port and disable telnet control has been added to conf.d/ushare under misc section.

Some ebuild related information:

 - econf is no longer working in both ebuilds. They need a manual oonfigure.
 - Init script checks if USHARE_DIRS is empty and stop the booting. Ushare won't boot without this information.
 - Problems while crosscompiling may appear, sorry but don't have time nor enviroment to check.

Sorry but I can't maintain the ebuild in the tree since I've never used it.
Hope the ebuilds can help the rest of you.

Comment 12 Sander Sweers 2008-05-12 21:40:11 UTC
It should depend on bug 204007 for the use of dlna. I don't want it to run as root, ever. So forcing it to run under ushare is the way to go IMHO.
Comment 13 Benjamin Hodgetts 2008-11-16 12:16:29 UTC
I have an annoying bug with this. Basically it works fine -once-. So say I watch a few videos on my XBox then turn it (the XBox) off. When I turn the XBox back on and try to connect again it just times out and can't connect, but the uShare process on the server is still running.

ushare-1.1a.ebuild (media-libs/libdlna)

Fixed dependency dev-libs/libdlna -> media-libs/libdlna.
Comment 15 Markus Tacker 2009-01-25 13:43:43 UTC
Development is halted.
Website states: "By lack of spare time, motivation and interest, uShare development is currently discontinued (this may change though). Don't expect release anytime soon :-("
Comment 16 Benjamin Hodgetts 2009-01-25 13:57:10 UTC
Just a word of advice, I switched to "Coherence" which basically does the same thing but without the issues I had with uShare. So that's there if someone needs an alternative.

Unknown option "--enable-nls".

NLS flag seems to be bugged.
