sending media to Boxee from Ubuntu?
Hey folks, sorry if this topic has already been addressed.
I would like to set up the external drive hooked into my Boxee Box so that it can be read/written from my Ubuntu desktop (and I no longer have to unplug the USB and power and hook it into my PC to add new media). As I understand it, this can be achieved through setting up an SMB client, but (1) I know almost squat about it, and (2) most all of the information I am finding involves hosting the shared files in Ubuntu, and I of course want to do the opposite.
I understand most of what's needed, and I think all that's left is figuring out how to set up the WINS server. From there, I assume I can set up the connection between the two with xSMBrowser (though, since I have never used a service like this, I am uncertain as to how to actually send the files..)
