Debugging MediaTomb Configuration Problems

The MediaTomb Logfile

The MediaTomb log file can be found under:

/var/log/mediatomb.log

However, this is normally not a lot of use, unless you turn on additional debugging output when you run MediaTomb -by adding the -D option on the command line as follows:

sudo mediatomb -D -u <User that MediaTomb runs Under> -c <MediaTomb Config File Location>

For example:

$ sudo mediatomb -D -u mediatomb -c /etc/mediatomb/config.xml

Debugging Transcoding Problems

The best way to check your transcoding command is correct is to run it from the command line, as outlined in the MediaTomb Transcoding documentation.
