I have knocked up a simple guide on how to . . .

- install XBMP
- upgrade to new CVS build
- install ccxstream for win32 and setup shares for use with XBMP

*UPDATE*

- install ccxstream as an XP service

I have been using ccxstream for a few days now and it seems fine.
Maybe a good alternative to users who are having problems with Relax.

ccxstream is easy to setup and requires just one command with options to
begin sharing out folders wink.gif

Dont know if the way I have setup ccxstream is the best way. But it is running
fine for me at the moment wink.gif

Guide is here . . .

In short . . .

ccxstream uses XBMSP protocol.

XBMSP is a more simplistic & faster protocol than the XNS protocol currently used by XBMP.

Though XBMSP has not replaced XNS it can be used by future XStream Servers to share media files to XBMP.

ccxstream comes in a Linux and a Windows version wink.gif

ccxstream is setup via CLI . . . one command with options is all thats needed to get setup beerchug.gif

See guide for example!

Performance wise i cant tell . . . Relax does good job as does ccxstream.
Currently I am using ccxstream with no issues at all wink.gif

edit . . .
spelling

Well Have been using ccxstream now for two days and I have to say it is a hell of a lot better than Relax... IMHO. I have not had one problem with it yet... Knock on wood smile.gif I just wish you could run it as a service in the backgroud :/ I'm very happy with ccxstream thus far.

PS... Great Tutorial!

V2 (includes FireDaemon Setup)

You need free (lite version) util from here . . .

FireDaemon features easy configuration (via GUI or XML), a low memory/CPU overhead, subprocess prioritisation, custom environments, CPU binding plus monitoring and logging to the event log and on-disk log files.

Sweet, however, I just downloaded the guide, and it is the same one... I don't see anything talking about installing as a service.

Thanks...

phenomenal work.

i was having nothing but grief from both SMB (hangs, etc) and RelaX (the new 'back button issue')...

ccxstream seems to be working flawlessly and transparently.

thanks again

Is ccxstream also working on OS X ? I read there was a linux version so can i use it.
And i don't know where to put request, but they are putting in some apple tech in newest player. So why don't they put in Rendevouz with Quicktime Streaming(i know Rendevouz not from apple). Rendevouz is very easy (no setup) and works great. iTunes will be availabel soon for Windows so they can use it too. (there are some alpha build availale on the web)
So that are mine thoughts about streaming protocol.

I got CCXStream working, but it doesn't stream video so well. It's really choppy when you first begin and anytime you seek to a different location. Relax streamed flawlessly, except it would lose connection and I couldn't watch a second movie or switch to my Music folder.

If I could either get CCXstream working smoothly or get Relax to stop losing connection, I would be a happy camper. Can anyone help?
