Hi. Does internet TV works with Gxine?
I know that internet radio works from own experience.
I tried most TV entries in Gxine, but rarely get a small audio clip than silence - no
picture whatsoever..?

Does this work at all?
How can I enter an url for internet TV that works?

PS

I have tested Internet TV sometime ago, worked ok.

Do you have broadband?
It would be pretty hopeless on dialup.

I have the same problem with gxine also when I try and watch flash films at atomfilms.com I see the picture of course it is flash but receive no sound
maybe somebody can make a dotpup of the libs needed so in that way puppy stays small except for those who wish to fatten puppy!!!!!!

I just watched dtore wars and everything worked sound and all but other films are stil issue gonna try some stuff and figure it out

For what it is worth, several people reported sound problems when they tried to watch this Flash movie.

the sound plays ok for Store Wars on my machine

if you have problems with sound, you could check /root/.xinitrc ... if there is a line renice -10 `pidof X`, try commenting it or deleting the line, and restart X ... it gives more cpu time to the video drivers, at the expense of the sound drivers

if you want to play movies, and streaming video, the mplayer codecs should work (for gxine and mplayer)

http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/codecs.html

i tried a few times, but i didn't get the qt3 quicktime movie sound to work, even though i seemed to have the right codecs

by the way, mplayer is apparently vulnerable to the software patent laws ... http://www.mplayerhq.hu/

Hi, ves I have broadband! So thats not a problem..

How can I try a different url than that in the menu?
Does someone have some url's that they know are working within Puppy and
Gxine?

Thanks,
PS

I thought the bad synch was part of the charm [ahem] - OK tried that and it improved (clser to synching) but still not in perfect synch.

We could maybe have a list of favs and test links for the wiki?

When we try to listen to http://www.c-span.org on Puppy Linux 1.0.3 we get interrupted sound, no video & xine engine message Error loading library: drv4.so 6.0 message. We are on 56K modem but get C-Span with no problems on Suse 9.3. What is the solution?

The http://tinypic.com/6442dz download stopped when half done. We tried downloading & extracting codecs from http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/codecs.html but still can't watch http://www.c-span.org . Playing videos works well with Puppy as is so it is hard to figure out why watching an online program like C-Span with RealPlayer is so difficult.

Even grandma should be able to watch online videos on Puppy Linux without going through a lot of hassle. If it is not possible to have it just work on Puppy as is, then we need the codecs in some place like Pup-Get along with clear, step-by-step instructions for getting them to work.

Yep, see the News page.
I might run into a legal problem with doing this though.
Not uploaded yet, will be available for 1.0.4.

Realplayer TV on Puppy 1.0.4 works on http://www.c-span.org , etc. now but we have a 56K modem & it has so many stops and starts that it is pretty much unwatchable. We see the comment above that 56K TV would be fairly hopeless but we get reasonably good 56K TV on Suse 9.3. Could the difference be that Suse adjusts the amount of buffer to allow continuous sound and picture? Would this be possible in Puppy?

Later versions of Gxine do have more "adjustments".
I ran into some difficulty before when I tried to update Gxine, but will attempt again, hopefully for the next Pup release.

Note, Pup is currently using Gxine 3.33, whereas latest version is 4.something.
