    Run MPExtended.Installers.Service.msi

    Remember to allow access through the firewall. If wanting to use MPExtended outside your home then also allow access to public networks.

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

    Right click tray icon for MPExtended and click exit

    install-webmp-skins-02.png

    Restart MP-Extended Service by running the desktop shortcut

    install-webmp-skins-03.png

    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).
    Show Spoiler


    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

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
