Ubuntu Maverick DLNA Server - MediaTomb (fix: for Samsung Devices)

To setup a DLNA media server (watch videos, music, pictures on a networked AV Device) on Ubuntu:

#apt-get install mediatomb
#/etc/init.d/mediatomb start

Using web browser, navigate to http://localhost:49152 and setup your paths to media files on your machine. Start viewing content on your TV / BD Players!

Further Help here:

For Samsung devices: they need a header hack so add this section to the Mediatomb /etc/mediatomb/config.xml (found here):
<add header=" Streaming"/>
<add header=" DLNA.ORG_OP=01;DLNA.ORG_CI=0;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01700000000000000000000000000000"/>
