so much to read. As a noob. I drown in all info.

I downloaded all three as others also indicated.

http://www.puppylinux.ca/tpp/ttuuxxx/programs/multimedia/vlc-0.8.6h-engv4.pet

http://www.puppylinux.ca/tpp/ttuuxxx/programs/multimedia/SDL-1.2.13.pet

http://www.puppylinux.ca/tpp/ttuuxxx/programs/multimedia/wxGTK-2.8.8-i386.pet



But how am I supposed to bind??? VLC to Seamoneky
so it get activated when BBC ask for realplayer?

and how am I supposed to activate it to play a .mpg
pr .vlc or .rm file in or on my hdd.

I looked in the menu it was not there. I tried to look
for it using the File but failed to find it and I wrote its
name in the console but most likely one should have
a start or call or some command me don't know.

Sorry to derail the thread. I want vlc going so I can test too. Smile

Nooby ,Nooby, Nooby
on the first page there are 3 downloads on the top, and one on the bottom, I'll fix that soon.
Here is the download you missed, It for mp4/quicktime
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=11185
Also to make it your "Default Mediaplayer"
install the pet package at the bottom of this message
Good luck Wink
ttuuxxx

Ps on the second page there is also a link to Multiget, try that also, it will increase your download speed 4X If you have highspeed.

Did as you instructed to the best of my knowledge Smile

Thanks for believing in my progress using pets and installs.

I should reboot now to see if something did happen.

Just click /menu/restart JWM
it will be in the menu/multimedia location

Sometimes in menus + entries you have to open Console and type
fixmenus
then restart JWM
you never have to totally reboot.
well unless you installing sfs files.

Hate to make you disappointed due to my extreme clumsiness
in following instructions. I thought me had done all the right stuff
clicked on right buttons. I even did the fixmenus and it did so
but no vlc at all.

In another thread one poster suggested one need to go into .packages to activate a progr.

But there I only found .txt files and no prog to activate.

Do you have frugal install too? could it vlc and the other 4 things end up in unexpected places where the programs don't look?

I even used pfind and that one did a too broad search so it found a lot of vlc stuff in the windows part of the computer instead of just searching in puppy folders.

When I did pet it told me where it thought it put things but it was
too much to write down I'm not that patient.

are there no log that could show what went on this day. then it would tell where the prog put things?

I will test Real Player 11 now and get back to VLC later.

I have saved a copy of the save file in a secure place.
so I can get back to here when I want to, I also saved the
original pristine state of original puppy so I can start anew.

Ttuxx thanks indeed for all work you put into this.
As you get ware of. It it totally unpredictable how
an individual noob understand a description and
how they manage to follow it. I'm very surprised too.

I really did believe it would work this time. I expected it to. Smile

Well half success. It certainly are in one menu now but not in the one
for setting run action. And if I start with the vlc and goto a directory with files to play then it fail to play them. The program seems to be ok but nothing happens. So something goes wrong still.

I have to find the online site with all the examples again and see if that one ask for application from within seamonkey and if that allow to activate VLC in any way.

So near or close and not closure. Frustrating. Smile

Progress finally. Not a cigar but almost.

I managed to set run actions for avi, wmv, mpg, flv and .rm files
to different players. gxine and VLC

I should try to get more codex for gxine cause it fails on some streaming videos from TV stations.

And unfortunate VLC failed on .rm but gxine did work on them so that was a good thing.

I had hoped VLC could take .rm but not those I had.

Ttuxx thanks for your help and Aitch thanks for your help.

Late at nigh now so I most likely come back tomorrow. Smile

Hey nooby

Before we say it "Failed", Lets have a look at the stations you were trying, Can you post the links please, Lets not forget your a nooby and aren't that Linux savvy yet, But soon I bet. This VLC doesn't have the VLC plugin for mozilla, I should compile that, So there are other ways to view websites. If mplayer or xine can do it so can VLC, I haven't came across a site I couldn't view a video stream yet with VLC.

Yes I managed to make realplayer take BBC which failed before
you provided RP. So very greatful for that.

Unfortunately the streaming service is local due to copyright. So
you can only test it if you live in Sweden.

nyhetskanalen.se which then redirect to anytime something.

I guess they use a media player thing.

The ironic thing is that Bogdan of Nimblex fame he has built in
the needed thing in Nimblex 2008. So if I was not such a noob
I could probably start up Nimblex and go to the parts that take
care of plugins and make a copy of how he does it.

Most likely he has some Roumanian similar streaming service
that he got motivated to have in his Nimblex.

I'm not sure that slax linux has it. And Nimblex looks very much
like slax to me.

I have tried to find an international service that have same needs
but I am too noob to know how to get it.

I set a bookmark on a site wich had many different test of players?

Had they streaming too. What was the url now?
