MediaMVP

Hardware requirements

Software requirements

  • libevent
  • zlib
  • libjpeg (optional)
  • libxml2 (optional)
  • ImageMagick (optional)

Installation

cd /tmp
wget ftp://ftp.shspvr.com/download/mediamvp/mediamvp_<VERSION>.exe
unzip -o mediamvp_<VERSION>.exe -d tmp
mkdir /tftpboot
install -v -m 644 tmp/DONGLE.BIN /tftpboot/dongle.bin
rm -r tmp
cd /tftpboot
wget http://bluecherry.net/~other/mediamvp/files/mvploader.c
gcc -Wall -O2 mvploader.c -o mvploader
cd $SOURCEDIR
tar xvzf libevent-<VERSION>.tar.gz
cd libevent-<VERSION>
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make
make install
ldconfig

To use ImageMagick, the plugin Makefile has to be altered

- #HAVE_MAGICK = 1
+ HAVE_MAGICK = 1

- MAGICK_VERSION = 5
+ MAGICK_VERSION = 6

Libjpeg can be used instead of ImageMagick (default). Then the Makefile has to be altered this way

HAVE_LIBJPEG = 1

See plugin installation
