I have ubuntu server running, no xorg,x11,desktop. There are some videos in the server hdd. On a remote machine I can access them using samba or plex. The server machine has its own monitor+audio (its a complete desktop). Is there a way I can use the client machine as a kind of remote to play some videos on server machine(which are in server hdd). The requirement is to use some ssh command and video start playing on server machine (it would be way cool if i can control it as well play pause volume etc), i should be able to close the ssh connection and video continue to play.
have you tryed to use this ?? % sudo apt-get install vlc browser-plugin-vlc or this % apt-get install miro
i think if you was connecting with internet your problem will fixed :D
