Missing MediaInfo

Post by vfr_nz » Mon Jun 10, 2013 8:05 pm

After a clean install on both LinuxMint 15 (32 and 64 bit) UMS is unable to
find "zen", libzen.so and "MediaInfo", libmediainfo.so.
Both these libraries are installed.

Any suggestions please.

Have you tried downloading and installing from here http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en/Download this is what I used, you say these are installed...but so did my Linux distro, using this site solved the error.

I just had this exact issue (one of many problems I'm trying to resolve) on Ubuntu 12.04 Server.

In my case the problem was that the symlinks to /usr/lib were set up incorrectly, so I just set up new ones without *.0 on the end:

mediainfo:

Code: Select all

$ locate mediainfo
/usr/lib/libmediainfo.so.0
/usr/lib/libmediainfo.so.0.0.0

Code: Select all

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libmediainfo.so.0 /usr/lib/libmediainfo.so
libzen:

Code: Select all

$ locate libzen
/usr/lib/libzen.so.0
/usr/lib/libzen.so.0.0.0

Code: Select all

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libzen.so.0 /usr/lib/libzen.so

Do you have MediaInfo installed? We don't bundle it for Linux

Try:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install mediainfo libzen-dev libmediainfo-dev
I also had this problem and solved it by installing those 2 dev packages. Good luck ;)

Cheers Guys .. I'm running 64bit mint linux and have latest java installed.. for other stuff
I did the mediainfo and libzen stuff and that now I can see the renderer " Android"
on the setup page of UMS. it's registered..
I have had UMS 5.3 and 32bit mint running no probs on another machine and I thought
while I was on holidays to rebuild a pre loved pc and install UMS again on 64bit mint.
I'm running uPnPlay from from playstore on a Samsung Note 3 and it has worked
previously.
I'm running UMS 6.0.0 and it all seems to go but I can't see the ums server and directories
any clues.

Cheers alberteim

Turn off the firewall. If the issue still persists, create a new thread and post debug files as described on top of the page.

All solved re renderer, I had some java IO issues after trawling thru
the logs and they were solved by downloading a complete ffmpeg
and redoing the UMS config.
Thanks for your hints all is now working fine

Thanks alberteim
