I have 2 samsung LED TV-s and I am trying to get my linux server at home to stream my media to the TVs.

I am looking for a solution for DLNA media streaming on a linux server to samsung LED TV, there is this official program from samsung called "PC Share Manager" that is supposed to do the job, however it works only on windows.

I found these two blog posts:

I tried with mediatomb and minidlna and they do the work, but kind of buggy and can't fast forward and rewind, getting the pause working was not automatic either

What about running PC Share Manager on Linux through Wine. Recall, Wine Is Not an Emulator. – Doc Aug 29 '11 at 16:43
i tought about it , but since it is a server it will not be able to display the visual part which is needed in order to create the active directories, i guess i could make my own script that will be refreshing the database from the directory( in other words to simulate the active directory ) and it should work but writing that script would not be such easy task – Aleks Aug 29 '11 at 17:29
