I coulda sworn you could have ANY media in your computer streamed to your N900. But when I started reading the description and **** it seemed like you needed certain channels or devices or something?

I need an app that will be able to let me stream my media from my desktop to my N900 or at least let me view my desktop through my N900. That would be AWESOME.

Well... it just works... or something...

Why don't you start with explaining what it is you want to achieve? Continue with what you've done so far to get to achieve your goal and where are things going ugly?

Viewing your desktop on your n900 and streaming media are two quite different topics. For media one would use Knots2, for desktop forwarding something like RDP, X11 or whatever floats your boat.

But start with defining what it is you want and what is not working.

Knots 2 doesn't work for me. Whenever I try to go here: http://localhost:1978/ I get a page not found and whenever I try to "configure file server" I get the same error. Mostly I want to stream my media to my N900 cause I have heaps of movies and music that I rather not waste time trying to save to my phone.

Goto the ip of your computer running knots, localhost is the local machine ie n900

Hopefully you have studied this page. Knots2 can be a bit difficult to set up for some, but as long as you follow the instructions things should work. Also: Use the search function on this site or use google to search the forum here. There's plenty of info around already.

I still haven't heard details from you:
What OS are you using? What are you trying to stream? What have you done so far and what have you achieved?

Answers don't grow on trees.

haha sorry this is the only part that confuses me:

Windows

Download the installer (Updated 2010-06-13). Install and start the server from the start menu. Then select Configure server from the menu to configure it.


and this

Just point your browser to http://localhost:1978 and add your media under settings. If you don't see the Update collection button, please make sure that both ffmpeg and VLC paths are correct.

which browser? Sometimes idk I should be doing something on my desktop or N900. I'm using W7. I'm just trying to stream movies from my desktop to my N900 where ever I am in the world. I haven't done anything but install Knots 2 on my PC and N900 and VLC media player on my PC. Haven't achieved anything yet

Install app to desktop pc, Fire-up browser that you like and go to that address on your desktop pc. If page doesnīt load then for some reason installer didnīt install it correctly or you might have Antivirus app or firewall app configured so that it blocks that partcular address on your local computer.

After you have managed to set up desktop pc (server here) then install app from maemo.org repositories to your n900 and launch it. It should detect your server automatically in your HOME network where computers can freely communicate with each other.

The browser on your windows machine. It doesn't matter what browser you use, as long as you make sure that you point your browser to your localhost, port 1978.

If you are able to see the knots2 page, than you know that the server side is finished and installed. (I'm not talking about adding your collection now.)

After that, make sure you install knots2 from the repo's on your n900 as well. Under normal circumstances and provided you have set up the server correctly, knots2 on your n900 will make the connection for you and show you what you have on your desktop machine.

PS: Do yourself a favor, and start working locally, just to make sure everything is working correctly, before you start streaming to remote locations over the net.
