I must first apologize for the slow response; my first post to this thread
was in October 2009, and I stopped watching it quite a while ago. I've
since moved the
project to a Google Code project (http://code.google.com/p/mythpodcaster/)
where you can find more documentation and file bugs & feature requests.
The OpenJDK JVM might work with the version of Google Web Toolkit that's
used in more recent releases of MythPodcaster, but I strongly recommend that
you use the Sun JVM instead. Configuring Tomcat to use the Sun JVM is
pretty easy. Just edit the file /etc/sysconfig/tomcat6 so that the variable
JAVA_HOME uses the location where the Sun JVM is installed.

Do you know which user the Tomcat6 server is running as? You can check this
by running 'ps' on your MythTV box:
[scott at mythtv mythpodcaster]$ ps -fC java
UID PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD
tomcat 8073 1 0 Jul22 ? 00:39:25 /usr/bin/java
I've set the owner of /var/cache/tomcat6/temp to "tomcat". Is there

The qt-faststart binary is not required. You'll need it only if you use any
of the fast-start transcoding profiles (i.e. ONE_PASS_FAST_START,
TWO_PASS_FAST_START). I recommend using qt-faststart because it leads to
fast start times when streaming the file. I found the qt-faststart source
in the FFmpeg source code repository.
Any additional questions or issue you might have will be addressed more
quickly via the MythPodcaster project site. I hope this helps,
