maybe you could upload my vlc-0.8.6h-commandline.pet some place else because Eric shutdown puppylinux.ca and the link for it in your first post is now dead.

whoops.... i'll upload a new one shortly...

also.. if anyone is interested..

i tried vlc-gtk with the dpup vlc pet file on lupq and the on screen gui didnt work well at all..

the on screen controls are probably only gonna work on 4.2, if at all!
(unless someone who is good with bash/xdotool can do it...)

I have fixed the 2.2 package, and re-uploaded

- I added some required xdotool libs
- I also updated the timing of the on screen controls
- and it will now make a symlink for gtkdialog if not found

If anyone uses this, and it does or doesn't work, I'd like to know which vlc package and puppy version you're using (please)!

Great news, I have compiled the latest VLC, version 1.1.5, for Wary 5.0. It handles all the audio/video formats including WebM. See my blog announcement:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02070

My 'vlc_nogui' PET is only 1.7MB, and I was able to get vlc-gtk to work with it, however as stated in my blog, I had to edit the /usr/bin/gtk-vlc script.

...note, I took out the "rxvt -e", don't understand why that is there. I added "-I dummy" to the vlc commandline -- but perhaps the vlc configuration file could be set to "dummy" interface as default.

There is one remaining problem, the on-screen controls do not work. I think that I need help with that.

Note, my vlc_nogui package might even work in Puppy 4.x, as VLC is written in C (not C++ which could cause trouble) and Wary uses the same Xorg 7.3 version as does Puppy 4.x. Oh, but Puppy 4.x does not have all the dependencies -- Wary has many more multimedia packages. So, it might be made to run, after installing all the deps. Maybe.

Anyway, Wary is supposed to be the successor to Puppy 4.x Smile

I think sc0tman brings up console just because of controls problem - vlc console interface has some basic controls.
Keyboard shortcuts should work ok though for video - Ctrl + arrows control volume and jumping back and forth some seconds, also there are much more shortcuts for switching subtitles and chapters which I don't remember now.

dummy interface on the other hand doesn't have any controls I think and can be started with cvlc wrapper too.

I added the 'rxvt -e' because on Puppy 4.2 (TurboPup/PuppyArcade/Puplite) vlc will not load up or play anything otherwise.. (The code came from dejan555, but didn't work on 4.2 until I added the 'rxvt -e' bit.... maybe I missed a trick, not sure..)

It also seems to be a good idea for music playback, until I make some on screen controls specific to music file playback ( I didn't do that, as I don't see many people wanting vlc-gtk for music playback..)

I wish I could do without the popup rxvt window though - at least for video playback!
...I hate the extra rxvt window popping up, but it is a necessity on my all 4.2s!

I was unable to make the on screen controls work with version later than 0.8.6, but I will have another go with this one.

Thanks Barry.

Oh I don't remember you had to use it.

That lousy Xdialog window with only few options Rolling Eyes
Yours is much more advanced.

EDIT:Oh lol I didn't realize you have controls bar since ver. 2.1 till I looked at new screenshot. Laughing

Maybe I'm just being stupid, but that is the only way I got the no_gui vlcs to *show* anything on my 4.2s Embarassed
(But I know nothing of the 'dummy' interface, etc...)

Laughing haha, not trying to blame you for any problems, by the way...

----------

Also, about the on screen controls if anyone wants to give it a go:

The trick is getting xdotool to find and attach itself to the right window, the rest is easy...

But I found different versions of xdotool behave/work differently..
..and none worked perfectly as far as I could tell, unless I was using it wrong!! Wink

Hmm, so you're using some kind of mouse/kbd emulation for controls, it emulates keyboard shortcuts on vlc output window or similar?

I was searching to find out more about it's dbus interface but couldn't find much info/or understand but I think it's not well maintained anymore.
Too bad they're focusing on qt frontends now.

Yes, when you click a button in the on-screen controls gui, it makes xdotool send a key command to the chosen vlc window (ctrl+right, etc)..

(vlc-gtk also supports 'RejoystickCC' - a tool of mine found in Puppy Arcade - so you can use your joypad to control vlc during playback Very Happy
... but its a separate thing from xdotool)

also way back in the beginning of vlc there was a gtk version, I don't know if it would be possible to update it to a newer base or not, but just an idea.

I've just remember the gtk version of vlc during the release of 4.2 it's kind a buggy, lacks of codecs and crashes when you use skins. Very Happy

I have fixed vlc-gtk so that it now works nicely in Wary, including the control panel. I also made some improvements to the two scripts. Blog announcement:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02078

I gave it version number 2.2.1, and I separated xdotool out to its own package.

This should work in all modern puppies, but only tested in Wary 5.0. I tried to put in special testing for older vlc versions, as my version 1.1.5 has some differences from the older PETs linked earlier in this thread.

So it will be interesting to see if my scripts work with the older vlc versions.

Note, I have put my initials "BK" where I have made changes in the scripts.
