Hi Barry,

I tested your new vlc-gtk (2.2.1), only briefly, but it seems that it works fine in Puplite (4.2) as well...
I used vlc-0.8.6h_commandline (from ttuuxxx)..

I just installed the pet, haven't got time to look at the changes right now, but it integrate them into a slight update that I had already made, but not yet posted.
My update also enables on screen controls for DVD and VCD, and has better icons.

Cheers.

PostPosted: Sat 15 Jan 2011, 10:44    Post subject: very annoyed  

This thread is intimidating, at least to me.

I installed Wary 5.0, without problem.

Then, the adventure began, two hours later, still no success, hence this message.

yes, I am annoyed.

Yes, I do not think that a distro as SLICK, and obviously EXCELLENT, as is Wary 5.0, should present these kinds of problems to a naive user.

YES, I did search, the forum, and BK's home pages, and,
YES, I did download ttuuxx's VLC "pet" package.

and
YES, I do observe VLC when I invoke the multimedia drop down menu.

BUT,

NO. It does not work. After rebooting, I invoke SeaMonkey, my browser of choice by the way, I click on OGG or aaC+ or MP3 icons at http://www.listenlive.eu/classical.html
and VLC not only doesn't appear, it isn't even offered as a choice for the user to select.

Thinking that I have done something wrong, I next investigate SeaMonkey "Preferences", and discover that there too, VLC is not offered to the user.

Why?

THIS IS ABSURD.

two choices:

a. the logical choice, put VLC where it belongs, into the CDROM used for installation.
(and get rid of the utterly useless, currently extant, streaming audio players)

This is the method employed by my current default distribution: CrunchBang XFCE, as well as by other, less performant distros, like Ultimate LXDE.

or,

b. If BK and the rest of the developers want to continue to compel the user to do the work, instead, by demanding download of VLC from a central repository of preconfigured packages, as this community so irritatingly calls "pup",
THEN PLEASE produce a single file (not hidden in the LUCID repository, for heaven's sake, how annoying do you suppose that is, to go to the WARY repository, and NOT find it, but instead, discover that it is sequestered anonymously in the WRONG location). This is the method employed by my plan B, aka PCLinuxOS LXDE, another first rate distro, which compels use of synaptic package manager, which works VERY WELL, in my experience.

The third method, i.e. the one employed by WARY at present, compelling the user to figure it out, is a FAILURE.

I have no idea what in the world these comments mean:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02078
To me, this may as well be written in Sanskrit.

One ought not require a doctorate in linuxology to enjoy the excellent performance of VLC running on Wary.

If Wary can't permit a user to make a single mouse click (WORST case) to enable VLC, instead of compelling the user to watch helplessly as the wretched streaming audio players on the naked version of Wary, stumble and fumble around, then, WARY joins the other coasters, along with suse, fedora, lint, ubuntu, and the rest of the junk that parades about as having a head on their shoulders. Of course, in the BEST case, WARY 5.1 will incorporate VLC, into the CDROM installation disk, just like CrunchBang and Ultimate, thereby obviating a need for the user to waste his/her time on this foolishness.....I hope someone, (that's you BK!!!) has a REASON for excluding VLC. I sure don't want to read any nonsense about "keeping the size of Wary small enough to fit on the CDROM")

annoyed,

I downloaded and installed the VLC announced on Barry's blog, including its dependancies.
Playing back audio and video from HD is working fine, but how do I enable watching internet video streams? When I click 'play' after entering the URL, nothing happens.
This is in Lucid Puppy 5.2, with Cjromium 10 as browser.
Do I need to install something else?
Thanks!

Did you put the URL into the 'URL' entry on the streams tab?
Do the URLs given in the favourites list work for you?

Set VLC as the player in pupradio.. see if that works, it's just a collection of ordinary web streams in various formats. Maybe some formats are failing?
(not meaning to be off topic, just to make sure it's not a vlc issue)

OR

type vlc <whatever/the/url/is/here> in a terminal

Cheers

Yes, URL put into Url entry
No, none of the favourites work.

In Pupradio 6 out of 8 preset channels work in Mplayer, none in VCL
In PupTelly, 5 out of 8 preset channels work in Mplayer, none in VCL.

In terminal, I get this:

Ok Bert, when you wake up you may want to ditch that vlc and use one made for lupu ( I think I read you're in lupu), I just tested sc0ttman's vlc-gtk in spup with vlc I compiled and the urls from pupradio work.

sc0ttman, not all streams are http: Wink , I just tried mms, no problems Smile

Cheers

I actually used to watch a LOAD of Muay Thai, live from Bangkok, on free mms streams...
AWESOME! Very Happy

But I realised as soon as I saw you people chatting about mms streams that vlc-gtk only checks for http://
(but only to quick check for a url on startup.. )
It's not critical, it doesnt stop any functionality, but will be updated..
