In Racy 5.3, it started from the Multimedia menu and seemed to be ok until I put a DVD in the drive and clicked Play DVD. A little window showed up for a second saying "Loading DVD, please wait." I waited, but nothing else happened.

Check the logfile, in the 'Advanced' tab.. it may be that your vlc pkg isn't working.. If you downloaded a pet, it might not work with the ffmpeg in your pup, you might need to compile it.

VLC-GTK updated to 2.6 - see main post for download

- It is strongly recommended you upgrade to 2.6 for file converting

- mainly a bugfix release, fixes in GUI, fave urls, transcoding, tooltips, workdir, ROX right-click options
- fixed: transcoding/converting settings and presets
- updated: improved Timer setting: set duration or start/stop times
- added: more formats/presets to Capture->Format
- added: 'Convert using VLC-GTK' right click option

Changelog:

- fixed: included most recent fave URLs list in pkg
- added: 'Convert using VLC-GTK' ROX right click option
- fixed GUI: in capture tab, renamed "Timer" to "Times", "Size" to "Format"

I think I can't do much more with VLC-GTK, until I get DVB working,
and I have no DVB hardware, and the signal is very poor in my area.

I would appreciate any advice on the transcode Format settings, see the end
of the execute() func in /usr/bin/vlc-gtk to check my settings are correct.

Any other suggestions or code snippets that might improve this, post them here.

for the transcoding see ffconvert, I posted the ones I was using in my old woo-ff program in shinobar's ffconvert thread and I am pretty sure he is using them and some others since (they may need translated from ffmpeg to vlc syntax though)

btw, I posted a similar program to vlc-gtk (uses xdotool) for mupdf here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=659689#659689
I won't be doing much if anything with it though till after midterms - just putting it out there in case anyone wants to make it look nicer

Yeah that and the VLC wiki/forums were my basis... Not sure if I applied the stuff from ffconvert/online sites etc correctly, but we'll see...

I'll have to check it out, Akita has mupdf in the repo, I did a frontend type thing for it, but didn't go as far as xdotooling it, etc...

PostPosted: Mon 04 Feb 2013, 18:17    Post subject: VLC-GTK updated to 2.6.2  

VLC-GTK updated to 2.6.2

See main post for download.

Fixed GUI layout issues with non-ubuntu fonts (thanks radky, stole some of your code). Mainly a bugfix release, but also includes a new 'Record' button in the On Screen Controls (OSC). Screenshots below.

Changelog, 04 Feb 2013:

- force font size in gtk theme, fixes GUI layout in many puppies (see screenshot)
- updated help info, more info on how to use VLC-GTK
- updated play_url, play_fave to support stream recording in OSC (see below)
- fixed launch_osc: get vlc pids before running OSC

- updated OSC:
- added button to record any selected stream
- fixes for loading files/streams without resetting OSC,
- added vlc icon to OSC, other minor clean ups

Known issue: when you quit playback of any sopcast stream, any sopcast downloads will also stop... Note this is only an issue if recording and watching sopcast streams simultaneously.

Feedback appreciated, particularly on the new font settings in the GUI.

PostPosted: Tue 19 Feb 2013, 20:49    Post subject: vlc-gtk 2.6.3  

VLC-GTK updated to 2.6.3

Bugfix release. See main post for download.

Changelog, 19 Feb 2013:

- set 14px icons for vlc-gtk GUIs
- fixed set location of gtkrc file to ~/.vlc-gtk/
- fixed GUI layouts in places, stream tab, OSC
- fixes for removed/lost work dirs, they wont get set in rcfile
- fixed OSC, use font + icon settings set by vlc-gtk
- fixed OSC for detect screen dimensions/resolution
- fixed OSC for low res < 1024x768
- fixed pinstall script, can be used in woof

Next, I might have a go at integrating import IceCast radio stations button, beside the sopcast button, in the Streams tab.. I also wanna add some basic 'playback history' feature..

I have no DVB stuff, but if anyone knows how to build a list of channels that VLC can play using wscan or similar, or know the relevant VLC command line options for DVB stuff, I'd like to know.. Especially if the channel list is formatted properly for a gtkdialog tree, and each entry runs `run_vlc dvb $1` when clicked... Wink

PostPosted: Thu 21 Feb 2013, 11:16    Post subject: VLC-GTK 2.6.4  

VLC-GTK updated to 2.6.4

See main post for download.

Changelog, 21 Feb 2013:

- added 'URL' source to Capture tab: can now capture/transcode URLs straight to chosen file format
- updated help info in main GUI
- updated tooltip info in Capture tab

These changes mean you can now convert a youtube URL straight to an mp3 file. Smile

Just put the youtube URL in the URL field of the Streams tab, and then go to the Capture tab, click on the 'URL' source, choose the conversion settings, and click the Capture button --> VLC-GTK will then convert the youtube video in the URL straight to a local mp4/flv/mp3/etc file...

I used it to go through a list of youtube URLs of some good songs, and give me the mp3 file of each song Smile

Hi scottman,
this VLC-GTK 2.6.4 looks very attractive ...
(running pemasu's wheezy 3.5.2.5)
i installed VLC-GTK 2.6.4 + all the prerequisite stuff as on page 1this thread ...and get this
Quote:
# vlc-gtk
/usr/bin/vlc-gtk: line 1031: syntax error near unexpected token `>'
/usr/bin/vlc-gtk: line 1031: ` file) $CL cvlc $C "$FILE" vlc://quit &>>"$LOGFILE" & ;;'
#

maybe it is trivial ...
(same comments with earlier versions)

BTW: the link to xdotool seems being broken
so i installed it from debian packages wheezy :
xdotool_2.20100701.2961-3_i386.deb
+
libxdo2_2.20100701.2961-3_i386.deb

note: running from console vlc or cvlc videofile.avi, i only get the souns ...but no video.
(installed: vlc_nogui-1.1.9-i486-akita.pet or vlc-1.0.5-lite-i486-dpup.pet or vlc_nogui_lua-1.1.9-i486.pet)
maybe not compatible with wheezy... Crying or Very sad
thanks for any comment
charlie

Thats what happens when you got the wrong VLC for your ffmpeg, or vice versa, etc.. You'll need to get a vlc_nogui built for wheezy, or compile it yourself.. the compile options you need are on the page where you got the vlc_nogui-1.1.9 pkg...

Just make sure you got these installed (inc DEV pets) when you compile: ffmpeg, schroedinger, libvpx, orc, x264, SDL, xcb_proto, xcb_utils ...

compiling is generally just this in the terminal:

Code:
./configure blah blah
make
new2dir make install
(then follow the instuctions on screen to make a PET file)

What shell are you using? It should be bash, the script is set to use BASH.. I have BASH 4.1 .. There should be no errors, the code is OK..

I know you have a broken VLC, that wont show video, but the errors *should* only affect logging to the logfile... Can you get VLC-GTK to load up at all with that error? Or even get as far as playing (the audio of) a file via the VLC-GTK interface?

Or does vlc-gtk just exit immediately with that error, and not load up at all?

Do you have a log file set in VLC-GTK (you should by default)? Or is that field blank in the GUI when you get these errors?

To get rid of the errors, you could simply look in the run_vlc() func, and remove all
Code:
 &>>"$LOGFILE"
in the func.. this will disable logging, but most people wont ever look at the log file anyway...

PostPosted: Sat 23 Feb 2013, 20:54    Post subject: VLC-GTK 2.6.5  

VLC-GTK updated to 2.6.5

Now features basic on screen controls for audio only files/playlists (see screenshot).
Previously VLC-GTK had no interface at all for controlling audio only playback!

You can now use VLC-GTK to load up your m3u audio playlists/album folders/etc,
click play, then select files individually using the on screen controls..

See main post for download.

Changelog, 23 Feb 2013:

- updated OSC: basic on screen controls for all audio file(s) playback
- fixed detection, of local playlist files or stream playlists
- fixed immediate exit in OSC, if no VLC pid from vlc-gtk
- fixed reset rcfile from command line playback
- fixed ignore rcfile from command line playback
- fixed WORKDIR.. again.. think its done now...
- faster loadup of on screen controls

good work again. Its not something I personally care about, but it may be more visually appealing to show the dirname separately from the files. It could also be useful for sorting the songs by title when they are in different directories (I think gtkdialog4 can do this internally now). or for scrunching overly long directory paths

in gtkdialog form that would be something like
Directory | Audio File
`dirname $x` | `basename $x`
...

where x is a full path to an audio file
