Source code is available on Github. The easiest way to install is probably just to clone the repository in the Totem plugin directory:

cd /usr/lib/totem/plugins
sudo git clone https://github.com/dlbeer/anuweb.git

The plugin path may vary, depending on your system.

To enable the plugin, restart Totem and select "Plugins" from the "Edit" menu. You should now see an item labelled "Anuweb (Totem web interface)" in the list of available plugins. Make sure the checkbox to the left is ticked, and the web interface should be up and running.

By default, the server will run on port 8099, so you should be greeted with the Anuweb dashboard if you point your browser at:

http://<IP address>:8099/

Click the "Configure" button in the plugins dialog to change runtime options. Currently available options are:

A change to any of these settings takes effect immediately upon pressing "Ok". You don't need to restart Totem or the plugin. These settings are stored under the GConf path /apps/totem/plugins/anuweb.
