    Restart MP-Extended Service so that it can see you have installed Web MP

    Right click tray icon for MPExtended and click exit

    Restart MP-Extended Service by running the desktop shortcut

    You also need to do this after you install additional skins

    Configuration of MPExtended and WebMP

    Instructions for using MPSync Plugin if you do not have the MediaPortal client installed on this computer:
    (Note: this is only needed to synchronize your media databases to your server, so that you can use the media-related part without having your client turned on. This is not needed for any TV-related functions).
    1. Install MPSync on your main MediaPortal Client
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...ediaportal-multi-seat-synchronization.117417/

    2. Setup MPSync to copy the database and thumbs files to your always on Server/NAS or the same PC that is running MPExtended.

    3. Note: your MPClients folders for media must be UNC shares that are available to all PCs on the network.

    eg. Moving Pictures movies folder on client: \\My PC\D\Movies\
    Not D:\Movies\

    4. Point MP Extended to the copied database files

    Test MPExtended and WebMP on local network

    Click the following link
    http://localhost:8080/

    default login is admin / admin

    testing-webmp.png


    Setup MPExtended for WAN (internet) access (optional)

    You need to do the following things
    1. Make sure the PC with MPExtended has a static local IP address
    2. Open port 8080 on your router and forward it to the PC with MPExtended installed
    3. Make sure port 8080 is open on your PCs firewall to connections outside your local network
    4. Check port 8080 is open - http://www.canyouseeme.org/
    5. If you don't have a fixed IP you can use a redirect service - http://www.noip.com/ http://freedns.afraid.org/
    6. Note that you will not be able to connect using your WAN address or your no-ip address using a PC inside your own LAN. You should check using a computer not using your LAN's internet (eg. smartphone with WIFI off)

    Ah, great. Installed and configured everything this evening - together with web access, dynDNS and wakeonLAN. Now i need a faster upstream :D
    Really nice plugin, together with the Blueshift skin :)

    Just tried this... but latest android does not have support for flash. Now what ??


    *UPDATE* - Also tried with PC. Installed flash and vlc plugins. Still cannot stream video. Just get black screen with VLC icon in the middle of the screen.

    Also, how do we get this to work with aMPDroid ??

    Cheers

    Installing other software, especially MP1, which is partly sharing Tv service with MP2, can make everything worse. Please upload your debug log files, if you want to solve the issue.

    You need to check the wiki for TVMosaic, you have recordings as source available once TVM is installed. And of course images and music are part of the NET6 version as for NET4. If you have issues with it further infos would be good.
