How did you get it work? It's been driving me nutz! I'm using Ubuntu 7.04.


ok, this is what I did...I copied this from the gnump3d mailing list archive 
that I wrote in May:

I got my server to serve out mpg movie files.  It may be overkill and the file 
says it's not recommended (backup the orignal), but I changed this line
in /etc/gnump3d/mime.types:

video/x-msvideo                                 avi 

To this:

video/x-msvideo                                 avi mpg

Kill your gnump3d process (ps aux to get the pid and then kill -9 xxxx) and 
then restart it (gnump3d --fast --background).
Make sure the file is in your streaming directory and it should show on a 
browser.  To get it to download though I had to chmod 444 on the mpg file
so that it was readable by everybody. 

Here's the video I'm streaming (you may need to download it first and then open 
the mpg file with a video player):

Hope this helps!
