Hello Sc0ttman,

The idea of a GTK GUI for VLC is a good one, so thanks for developing it.

I have tried it a few times including the latest version, but I find that I can not launch streams by entering a playlist metafile such as a .pls in the URL field.

It works with the Qt GUI and even from CLI eg for WABC in New York using vlc_nogui-1.1.5 in Racy:-

Code:
cvlc http://provisioning.streamtheworld.com/pls/WABCAMAAC.pls


Not sure if I should be inputting the URL in a different way or if something can be done in your VLC-GTK to make it work by just entering the URL and clicking the button in the normal way.

I just copied and pasted the URL into my VLC-GTK (in the Streams tab), and it plays fine for me .. Well, the audio playlist GUI pops up with no entries in it (not ideal!) but I can listen to the radio station fine...

Maybe the problem is with incompatible settings set by VLC-GTK, that cause problems with vlc itself... Try enabling the 'debugger' (in the Advanced tab), then launch the station as normal - you'll get a popup window of the VLC command to be used - just copy & paste the vlc command into a terminal and gradually reduce the options until it works, or until you are left with only `cvlc "URL"` ... This might help you find the problem - if it is indeed related to options being set by VLC-GTK.

Hope that helps.

PostPosted: Sat 04 May 2013, 16:52    Post subject: A little more on the Slacko & VLC relationship  

I talked a few weeks ago about using the vlc-gtk as a light and easy way to get a gui for vlc. earlier in this thread it was shown that the main vlc program was lacking some dependencies that presumably are associated with non-slackware versions of puppy. I never resolved that problem, but the slacko package manager does allow for the downloading of a 2.0.x version of VLC. The point I want to make here is that a separate qt library sfs file is available and can be loaded at boot. This obviates the need for incorporating qt into the packages associated with the vlc download - and cuts the vlc player down from 140 megs to 40 megs and thus does not clog up the save file. Many dependencies are still missing, but it seems to play fine enough.
This info is of interest only to neophytes, but maybe it is something helpful.

Steven

NOTE: I just re-uploaded a (more) fixed 2.8!

Changes:
- OSC won't quit on slow VLC reload (over samba, etc) after clicking item in playlist

...Around 9 people downloaded 2.8 at the time of posting this,
those people should re-download, if the OSC is exiting between playback of files..

(The only difference is an extra 'sleep 1' near the end of /usr/bin/vlc-gtk-osc, after 'get_vlc_pids' on line 441)

EDIT: For something a little different, a simpler VLC GUI, see here VLC embedded in gtkdialog
