Hi All,

Attached are three files documenting my experiences with installing and using 3.0-beta2. In the install, I may not have the "correct" sequence of installation, but this listing is what actually worked. I had to do several tweaks to get things working.

Platform: FreeBSD 7.3-PRERELEASE.

PLUMI_INSTALL.txt - An annotated log of the installation procedure.

PLUMI_TRANSCODEDDAEMON_FG.txt - An annotated log of running the daemon.

PLUMI_INSTANCE_FG.txt - An annotated log of running the Plumi instance once I got it working.

Note1- In the two _FG running logs, the first run (for both files) has the "#!/bin/bash" interpreter hardcoded. You can see what the errors look like for that. I then fixed that and re-ran both _FG processes, and performed some tests.

Note2- I was not able to get the thumbnail to generate an Ogg or mp4 video stream.

Note3- For the properties page: I replaced all 'localhost' entries with the IP address above.

Updated PLUMI_INSTALL.txt to use plumi.buildout/trunk instead of 3.0-beta2. Also updated the text to be more readable, and corrected some command errors.

This version was tested on a clean install of FreeBSD 7.3-PRERELEASE. It should work on 8.x but I haven't tested it.

This version includes instructions to change the plumi_properties/manage_workspace page, which resolves the problem of not getting Ogg, mp4 to play through the 'flowplayer' application.

Everything now works. (Well, it worked for me :-). I hope it will work for you.)
