PostPosted: Sun 28 Jan 2007, 16:57    Post subject:  VLC media player for Puppy?  

Building VLC is hard at the best of times, but I'm wondering if anyone is using VLC on Puppy?

http://www.videolan.org/developers/vlc.html

I'm interested more in just running the command-line functions to route video streams, rather than playing videos on-screen.

Anyone been down this path?

There's a package for it. I think it's in the PSI repositories. On my system there were odd vertical lines on all the video, but I haven't had time to bother figuring that out. I was also using a "nightly" build of Pizzapup, so it may have been some library problem.

18 MB, so it might require additional 40 for installation.
Can't find he forummessage, but it is quite new, maybe 2-3 weeks.

Hello Pizzasgood,
I'm using Puppy 2.10 installed on my HD and VLC works as good as Gxine.
I have a 8GB movie installed on my HD and it plays it perfectly, very smooth.

Yeah, I figure it's something in my system. Someday I'll set some time aside to sort it out.

VideoLAN 0.8.6 media player
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13863
I compiled VLC to check whether it's as good as MPlayer. Except for DVD menu support, MPlayer wins.

MPlayer 1.0rc1 + XvMC Nov 2006

VLC is much smoother than Gxine for me. With the 0.8.6 dotpup I also have strange vertical lines (not there with the Windows build) on a .mov file with ima4 audio codec and svq video codec (whatever they are), but it plays other videos fine.

The other strange thing is that it won't play recent .wmv files that the Windows build does play - it just shows the first frame, and then vlc closes. I'm a little disappointed, as I still have to boot into Windows to play them, because the latest build of Mplayer (which can also play them) won't even run on my Puppy Smile

EDIT
I take it back - I get the strange lines with a DVD with different codecs as well - I'll have to go back to my previous VLC install (that was done all wrong, but worked great!)

Subject description: Streaming using VLC on Puppy
 

I have VLC setup on 2 different PCs running Windows. One PC has a webcam connected and I have set this PC to stream from the webcam (capture device) to the other PC running VLC. I can view it and It works great.

HOWEVER: I read on the following link that Direct Streaming is only possible with Windows (and not Linux):
http://www.videolan.org/doc/streaming-howto/en/ch10.html#id300488

Is this still the case for linux? Has any one tried it with Puppy linux? Is it possible now?

Many thanks for any answers.....

No, that says that streaming with Directshow is only possible with Windows. That is because Directshow is a Windows technology. I think in this they are saying that under Windows you can use any video input device that is Directshow compatible - VLC interfaces with Directshow, and doesn't care what the device is. To stream video in linux you will need an input device with a video4linux driver. That page has at least one link for where to find information, and I would suggest that you definitely need to go elsewhere to sort this out, as very few Puppy users run VLC, and even fewer do any video streaming. Puppy does run VLC, so should be able to do everything that VLC is capable of under Linux, assuming you don't have problems installing drivers or anything. If you do get it working, it would be great if you make a post outlining what your hardware is, and how you got it to work.

Ha! That's what the problem with 0.8.5 was and someone wrote a patch for it which they claimed to have included in 0.8.6 (the changelog says "native wmv9 support"), but when I compiled it last week it didn't work and it seems like when Tempestuous compiled his he didn't get it working either!
Maybe we need a newer version of ffmpeg.

I'm using VLC see http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=14935 and MediaPlayerConnectivity at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/446?id=446 and this combination plays everything I throw at it in Puppy Prism.
