HOWTO: Serviio 1.3.1 for Zyxel NSA325

Done, got it working now, 2013-10-07.
I DO NOT TAKE _ANY_ RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS OF DATA AND/OR LOSS OF WARRANTY.

---

2013-10-07

This is tested on a Zyxel NSA325 with firmware 4.61.
All packages and links below are valid as of 2013-10-02 and are the most up-to-date packages at this time.

This step borrows from this guide with full credits and acknowledgement to "burbulence" which can be found here:
http://forum.nas-central.org/viewtopic. ... 881#p68765
in the way that I have installed the packages described in that guide before trying to install Serviio 1.3.

Full credits and acknowledgement goes to "DeanoX" on his guide for Serviio 1.1 which can be found here:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=8933

This is simply an updated version of that guide and also using it as a base for this guide.

With this being said you should be able to simply use this guide from top to bottom and come out clean with a good install even though you haven't done anything (like installing FFP) before reading this.

---

1) Install FFP 0.7

Source: http://zyxel.nas-central.org/wiki/FFP_as_zypkg [somewhat modified instructions below]

First off I’ll describe how to install FFP 0.7 as a package.
This assumes that you have already setup your NAS and installed HDD(s) etc.

- Download “Filezilla Client” and install it
- File -> Site Manager -> New Site and select:
Host: Your NAS IP (ex. 192.168.1.1)
Protocol: FTP
Logon type: Ask for password
User: admin
(Default password for the NSA325 is “1234” if you have not changed it)
Click “Connect”
(You can name this connection “NSA325 – FTP” for easier reference later on)
- Enter ftp://ftp.zyxel-tech.de/2.new_mirror/NSA325/4.40/zypkg/ in your browser and click “Save file as” on “web_prefix” and download it into the “/admin/zy-pkgs” folder on your NAS.
- Enter your NAS ip address in your browser and login as admin
- Go into NSA325 -> System Settings -> Firmware/Packages -> Package and click “Retrieve List From Internet”
- You should now see a package called “ffp”
- Click to select it and then “Install/Upgrade” and then “Apply” with all other settings default.
- After the installation you should see a link at the far right under “Management Page”, click it.
It should read “Congratulations with installing FFP on your nas.”


2) Add site definitions

Install uwsiteloader on FFP 0.7
Sources: FFP management page,
http://nas-tweaks.net/373/uwsiteloader- ... _plug-0-7/

- Download PuTTY (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/)
(PuTTY is a single .exe file that does not need installation so please put it into your program folder and make a shortcut to your desktop in order to not accidently delete it)
- Start the program
- Enter your NAS IP (ex. 192.168.1.1) as “Host Name”, be sure to check that “SSH” is selected and click “Open” (you can enter a name under “Saved Sessions” and then “Save” to have an easy shortcut to this)
- A warning will appear, click “Yes” (no need to get into explaining this)
- login as: “root”, password is your admin password. (the program does not move the cursor when you enter your password, simply enter it and press enter)
- You should see “Welcome to FFP…” etc. and be logged in.
- Disable telnet for security reasons by entering:
“/ffp/start/telnetd.sh stop”
then
“chmod a-x /ffp/start/telnetd.sh” (Pasting is done in putty via left click)
- Enter:
“wget http://wolf-u.li/u/441 -O /ffp/bin/uwsiteloader.sh” (Should see “uwsiteloader.sh saved”)
then
“chmod a+x /ffp/bin/uwsiteloader.sh”
then
“uwsiteloader.sh”
- Press “Yes” to update UW Site Loader and then “OK”
- Check all sites (click with your mouse or press space to select) and press “OK” and then “OK”

3) Install ffmpeg / lame ffp packages

Run:
"slacker -ui" and:
install mz:lame-3.99.5-arm-1.txz
install uli:ffmpeg-1.2.1-arm-1.txz

4) Install Java
Source: Serviio Forum (see above) +
http://nas-tweaks.net/419/installation- ... -fun_plug/

- Go to this site:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ ... index.html

- Accept the license agreement (by clicking the radiobutton)

- Download the following file on the site:
ejre-7u40-fcs-b43-linux-arm-sflt-headless-27_aug_2013.tar.gz

- Register for an account if needed

- Run (in PuTTy) which creates a "java" folder

mkdir -p /ffp/opt/java

- Using FileZilla upload the file to the folder you create above

- Run (in PuTTy)

cd /ffp/opt/java #Changes directory

tar xvf ejre-7u40-fcs-b43-linux-arm-sflt-headless-27_aug_2013.tar #Unzips the folder

rm ejre-7u40-fcs-b43-linux-arm-sflt-headless-27_aug_2013.tar #Removes the .tar file

!!! ln -s ejre1.7.0_40 #Creates a link to the unpacked dir !!! PROBABLY NOT NEEDED

- Using FileZilla go into the ejre1.7.0_40 folder and move all contents into the folder above (/ffp/opt/java) and then delete the ejre1.7.0_40 folder.

- Run:

chmod 777 java in /ffp/opt

echo "export PATH=/ffp/opt/java/bin:\$PATH" >> /ffp/etc/profile.d/java.sh
chmod a+x /ffp/etc/profile.d/java.sh
#Line above and below permanently puts it into the environment variables

- Download "java.sh" from "/ffp/etc/profile.d" and edit it to only include:
"export PATH=/ffp/opt/java/bin:$PATH
" and save and upload/overwrite.

- Restart your NAS

- Run (in PuTTy)

java -version #Checks if it works

Return should be = "java version "1.7.0_40""

5) Install Serviio

- Run (in PuTTy)

cd /ffp/opt #Changes directory
wget http://download.serviio.org/releases/se ... nux.tar.gz #Downloads Serviio 1.3.1
tar xfvz serviio-1.3.1-linux.tar.gz #Extracts the compressed folder
rm serviio-1.3.1-linux.tar.gz #Removes the compressed file

cd /ffp/opt/serviio-1.3.1 #Changes directory
chmod a+w library #Changes permissions
mkdir log #Creates directory
chmod a+w log #Changes permissions
chmod a+w plugins #Changes permissions

cd /ffp/opt
ln -s /ffp/opt/serviio-1.3.1 serviio

!!! mkdir /ffp/tmp !!! PROBABLY NOT REQUIRED SINCE FFP ALREADY HAS A "TMP" FOLDER, CMD NOT ENTERED

6) Make Serviio startup script

Open up "Notepad ++" and paste the following, be sure to fix EOL-Conversion, "Edit->EOL Conversion->Unix/OSX Format". Save this as "serviiod.sh" in "/ffp/start" (with FileZilla) and then run (in PuTTy) "chmod a+x serviiod.sh":

  Code:
#!/ffp/bin/sh

# FFP Startup script for Serviio

EXEC=/ffp/opt/serviio/bin/serviio.sh
PIDFILE=/var/run/serviiod.pid
JAVA_HOME=/ffp/opt/java/
OPTS=

test -x $EXEC || exit 0

case "$1" in
  start)
   echo "Starting Serviio"
   
   # set required JAVA home environment variable   
   export JAVA_HOME
   
   # Use the normal serviio.sh script to ensure correct environment is set up
   if start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --oknodo --make-pidfile --background --pidfile $PIDFILE --exec $EXEC -- $OPTS; then
       echo "OK"
   else
       echo "Failed"
   fi
   ;;
   
  stop)
   echo "Stopping Serviio"
   
   # Kill both serviio.sh script and Java process
   serv_kill=`ps aux | grep serviio.sh | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'`
    java_kill=`ps aux | grep org.serviio.MediaServer | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'`
            if [ "$serv_kill" = "" ]; then
                    echo "Serviio shell is not running"
                    RETVAL=1
            else
                    kill $serv_kill
                    RETVAL=0
            fi

            if [ "$java_kill" = "" ]; then
                    echo "Serviio Java is not running"
                    RETVAL=1
            else
                    kill -9 $java_kill
                    RETVAL=0
            fi
   
   echo "OK"
   ;;
   
   status)
           
         serv_pid=`ps aux | grep serviio.sh | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'`
            java_pid=`ps aux | grep java | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'`
            if [ "$serv_pid" != "" ]; then
                    echo "Serviio shell (pid $serv_pid) is running"
                    RETVAL=0
            else
                    echo "Serviio shell is stopped"
                    RETVAL=1
            fi
         
         if [ "$java_pid" != "" ]; then
                    echo "Serviio Java (pid $java_pid) is running"
                    RETVAL=0
            else
                    echo "Serviio Java is stopped"
                    RETVAL=1
            fi
         
esac

exit 0


7) Edit Serviio script (NOT the newly created script above)

- Use FileZilla and download "serviio.sh" from "/ffp/opt/serviio/bin/"

- Edit the file with Notepad ++ and find "JAVA_OPTS" and change it to:

JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dderby.system.home=$SERVIIO_HOME/library -Dserviio.fixedPointEncoders -Dserviio.defaultTranscodeFolder=/ffp/tmp -Dserviio.home=$SERVIIO_HOME"

- Find the last line that executes Java to decrease the memory and edit it to:

"$JAVA" -Xmx384M -Xms20M -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:MinHeapFreeRatio=10 -XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=20 $JAVA_OPTS -classpath "$SERVIIO_CLASS_PATH" org.serviio.MediaServer "$@"

- Upload the edited file and overwrite the old file (serviio.sh). You could save the original file for future reference.

7) Start Serviio

- In PuTTy run:

sh /ffp/start/serviiod.sh start

- Check that Java is running with:

ps -ef | grep serviio

- It should return:

root 2861 1 0 14:27 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh /ffp/opt/serviio/bin/serviio.sh
root 2872 2861 3 14:27 ? 00:00:36 /ffp/opt/java//bin/java -Xmx384M -Xms20M -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:MinHeapFreeRatio=10 -XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=20 -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dderby.system.home=/ffp/opt/serviio/library -Dserviio.fixedPointEncoders -Dserviio.defaultTranscodeFolder=/ffp/tmp -Dserviio.home=/ffp/opt/serviio -classpath /ffp/opt/serviio/lib/*:/ffp/opt/serviio/config org.serviio.MediaServer

- Script can be stopped with:

sh /ffp/start/serviiod.sh stop

8) Manage Serviio and add media
Source: http://www.serviio.org/component/conten ... e?id=21#q2

- Download Serviio of your choice:
http://www.serviio.org/download (ex. choose Windows if you are running in a Windows version)
(IMPORTANT! SERVER & CONSOLE NEED TO BE SAME VERSION. I.E IF YOU DOWNLOAD SERVER V.1.3.1 YOU WILL NEED CONSOLE V.1.3.1)

- Install and uncheck "Serviio Server" so you only install "Serviio Console"

- Go into the install folder of "Serviio Console" then the folder "bin" and edit the "ServiioConsole.exe.vmoptions"-file with Notepad ++, add:
-Dserviio.remoteHost=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
(where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is your NAS IP-address for ex: 192.168.1.1)
then save and exit and start the console.

You MIGHT need to press CTRL+ALT+DEL and manually close the process for the console and then start it again.
You will see if it runs if you go into the "Serviio Console" folder and then the subfolder "Log".

Start the program and go into the tab "Library" and then "Add local" using the following path (for a system using a single HDD):
/i-data/md0/yourfolder
Ex: I have all my videos in /i-data/md0/video divided into .../video/tv-shows and .../video/movies.
Those two folders (tv-shows and movies) are the ones I've added.

RECOMMENDED IN THE ORIGINAL GUIDE: Do not let the NAS generate thumbnails since it tasks the NAS too much.

Under "Status" and then "Renderer Profile" you can see your discovered devices, click where it says "Generic DLNA Profile" and select the best option suited for you (if not the default one works out). Ex. I have a F-series Samsung TV and I selected "Samsung TV / player (C/D/E/F-series).'

To enter the webinterface enter:
http://192.168.1.145:23424/mediabrowser/
you will first need to set a password in "Serviio Console" under the tab "Remote"

---

Hope it works for you as well, check it out and if you can improve this or have suggestions etc. then please let me know.
As stated in the start of this "HowTo" it is based on "DeanoX" guide for Serviio 1.1 which can be found here:

Re: [HowTo] Serviio 1.3.1 for Zyxel NSA325

Hi
Thanks for the tutorial
Everything is fine until I get to the 'mkdir -p /ffp/opt/java'
I can't find the opt or java folders, all that is in the zy-pkgs/ffp folder is the ffp.log file
Where do I point Filezilla to upload the downloaded java file?

Thanks for any help, I'm new to Linux and the NSA325 :?

Re: HOWTO: Serviio 1.3.1 for Zyxel NSA325

Installed serviio 1.4 on my nsa310 using this guide and the one for version 1.1 , its running and all is well but i only have a 500 gig hd in it so my media cant be stored on it .
Wath i want to do is add the video files stored on my other nas (lenovo ix2 6tb) but it doesnt scan the files when i add the network addres , had the same problem when running servio on my pc but then i fixed it changing the login rights . Dont know how to do this on serviio running on my nas so tried te disable the security on my lenovo nas but this diddnt work aswell .
Anyone have a sollution for this would be great

Re: HOWTO: Serviio 1.3.1 for Zyxel NSA325

in other post you said nsa310...
i am just curious, which one you have?

but what to do is same in both (i am not linux expert) but I would go this way, play with nfs:

http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-expo ... with-nfs4/


i have another question, has nothing with this above:
do your device play all files from local disk? do you use transcoding option, does processor have enough power?

thx

Re: HOWTO: Serviio 1.3.1 for Zyxel NSA325

dont think i need nfs file sharing for this just some kind of media aggregation like u can set on twonky servers or a way to just add the network drive to serviio on the nas so it has the right priveliges


Found this in serviio log file
2013-12-27 22:07:00,244 WARN [LibraryAdditionsCheckerThread] Folder '/\\IX2\Media' is either not an existing directory or cannot be read due to access rights

Hi,

Just a quick reply to this post...

I've just followed the first post step by step and managed to get Serviio running on my NSA325 v2 device.

I had to do a search engine search for the Java file as it is now archive on the Oracle site but the download link is still there...

Regards,

Dave.

Thanks for the How To.
I think it works very good with my NSA325 V1 (latest FW FFP 7). But a huge problem.
I have try Version 1.4 and 1.3.1 with the same Error in the log:
"Unknown encoder 'libmp3lame' "
I have the 1 installed from the How To.
Can anybody helps here (link, aka?)

Thanks and regard
