Any easy guide to turn Omega2 into WiFi media hub/media center?
My programming language knowledge begins and ends with VBA and SQL.
I bought this Omega2 to basically turn it into a WiFi media hub or media center to access stuff on different devices.
Is there a guide anywhere on how to do this?
I don't know if there's a guide doing exactly what you need. Perhaps! Google might know. One thing is for sure, you will need to learn more about your Operating System which is in the Linux family. So, google: LINUX TUTORIAL first.
if you want to share files between devices you can use samba, the package is
samba36-server. You can find on Google several tutorials an guides on how setup it on Linux. If you want to share media using a DLNA server you can install minidlna, but I'm afraid it's not on the repos and you would have to find a way to compile and make it work on the Omega yourself. If you have Apple devices and use iTunes you can use forked-daapd to share your music library with all your devices, neither is in the repos so you would have the same problem.
@jorgegarciadev it returns
root@Omega-65E5:/# opkg install minidlna
Unknown package 'minidlna'.
- opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package minidlna.
@Mar-Adrian-Belen did you do opkg update before trying the install?
@Mar-Adrian-Belen They are not on the Omega repos but in the LEDE ones. You have to uncomment the repo
/etc/opkg/distfeeds.confor, what I would do, download the packages and their dependencies and install them manually. You can download the packages with:
And then install them with:
opkg install minidlna_1.1.5-1_mipsel_24kc.ipk
@jorgegarciadev thanks. it works now :dancers: !
@Mar-Adrian-Belen can you show me the detail to have the dnla server working? I want to do the same !! Thanks in advance !
