There is an open source server for the MediaWiz that works with Linkplayer:http://babelfish.altavista.com/babel...71%2F&lp=ja_en
This version is for unix, but there is a windows port called "Uzu" at:http://babelfish.altavista.com/babel...tino%2f2647%2f
The unix version has source code available, but I couldn't find source for the windows port. I tried running the Uzu program, but couldn't get it to work, as most of the dialog box buttons were off the side of the screen.
I used Cygwin http://www.cygwin.com
to compile the wizd program, and it works fine in Windows. So I added the following features:
1) automatically combine file series VTS_01_1.VOB, VTS_01_2.VOB, ... into a single file, so it serves to the Linkplayer without pause between parts
2) added .ts and .tp file support
3) added option to automatically skip forward to subdirectory when opening a directory containing only a single subdirectory. So selecting a DVD directory will jump automatically to the VIDEO_TS subdirectory.
4) made it ignore "AUDIO_TS" directories, so feature 3) is more useful
5) fixed a bug in wizd where it closed the server port too quickly
6) adjusted the skin to work better with the LinkPlayer
You will need to put the cygwin1.dll file in the wizd directory, or in the c:\\windows directory. [Edit: cygwin doesn't like windows shortcuts, so edit the wizd.conf file and change the "document root" line to have the path to your media files]
The modified source is included in the archive. From the AltaVista translation I gather that the source is completely open - i.e. do what you want with it.
Are there any other open source server options out there that might be better? wizd works fairly well, but all of the source comments are in Japanese, although the code and variable names are all English. Anyone else working on their own servers?
[Edit: Updated the attachment to add support for LinkPlayer photo slideshows, and support for the .url file type used by Internet Explorer shortcuts. Create a relative shortcut in the docroot directory to ..\\..\\..\\..\\Documents and Settings\\[username]\\Favorites, and then that shortcut will appear as a directory on the opening screen, and you can then access the web through any link on your Favorites list.]
[Edit: made a web page to host this server program. See the following link for the latest version: http://www.geocities.com/flipflop7146/wizd.html
