I'll have a go at FTP serving up my media.
I've been playing around with having a MySQL DB on my home server to connect the Pi to. I've been following this quide: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php....._libraries
but I think because the Pi build is v12 and the stable Windows build is v11, both devices have created their own video DBs (myvideos58, myvideos61), so I think they wont be able to talk to each other.
Is there a way of making the Pi build talk to the older myvideos58 DB, or would it be easier to install the nightly Windows build so that it connects to myvideos61?
Had the same problem, had to install a V12 nightly build on my other machines (Apart from the XBox1 which is not supported any more, will be retired when more Pi's are forthcoming) to share the same library. Apart from that it works great.
Which version did you download Simon? I've tried the newest nightly build, but it tries to create myvideos63 now!
