I'm looking for software to capture a flash stream that uses rtmp protocol? the normal flash download plugins for firefox won't work and i'm not finding anything on the web for free options. from what i've read about it, it's a proprietary protocol with adobe and not many people now how it works. anyone here know anything that could save the files or grab the stream?
This plays fine in VLC, and there's a "Record" button there but I'm never prompted to save the recording anywhere. I wandered through preferences but didn't see any default capture directory fields.Where/how do I capture the stream for playback later? The docs that I've stumbled across so far are pretty outdated (but I'm still googling).
So I got myself a USB capture card (EasyCap) to use for capturing gaming, digitizing my kids' old VHS movies, etc. It works fine, I've been using VLC to view and record stuff from it, but I've noticed one issue. When recording streams via VLC, even with no other programs running to give VLC as much CPU time as it wants, the audio slowly falls out of sync. I've tried the MP4 (H264/MP3) container and the OGG (Vorbis/Theora) container.
Early on you can't hardly tell, but the further into a movie you get the more out of sync the audio gets, so that by the end of the movie the audio is a good 1-2 seconds off. It's not a set amount either so I can't just split the audio to a separate file then shift it one direction or the other to make up for the difference, because like I said, the offset starts out at nothing and gets progressively larger as the movie goes on. When I select "display locally", the video/audio that is displayed stays in sync, only the video/audio that gets committed to the output file falls out of sync, and it doesn't matter if I play the file with Totem or VLC.
video playback is like I have applied a blueish sepia filter over it. And this is just the playback from totem player or mplayer, and not the playback from ..... (and generally online streaming) - this works just fine. this messy video playback also appears when I use cheese to capture video with my webcam. Note that the preview picture of the video file on nautilus has the natural colours it should have.
at first when I installed the os this particular problem didn't exist, but it came up the time I decided to follow the "comprehensive multimedia guide". So now I have all the pros of following the guide, but this is a major con...
So I want to be able to stream netflix on ubuntu 10.04, but netflix requires M$ silverlight. I am trying to get moonlight to work but it still tells me I don't have the right software for this. I have installed moonlight 3.0, not sure if I got all the plug in for it though.
Is there any way to check if a url points to a streaming video file or not programmatically. For example with this url : [URL].. I should get TRUE and with the url : [URL]..should return FALSE.
I'm building a Linux system specifically for video capture in prep for yet another video games review site I want to attempt. She is running Debian Sid with Enlightenment as her desktop.This system actually has two different devices that should be able to do the capture from the Wii, PS2, XBox, and other systems that can connect to it. The first is the video card itself, an ATI Rage 128 Pro AGP 4X, which has TV (aka composite) in as well as what I am guessing is S-Video in (not positive on that since the port has significantly more than 4 pins unlike the S-Video ports on my AV switch). The other is an external ATI TV Wonder USB TVWonder, which has coax, composite, and S-Video inputs.
When I installed and ran XAWTV, it crashed with a complaint that there was no video grabber device found. When I did lsusb, I saw that there was no sign of the external USB capture device. lspci showed the video card, but no mention was made of its TV capture feature. However, I am not certain if there was supposed to be any separate entries for that.So anyway, before I start bogging you all down with what may or may not be too much system data, I first need to know, is this an exercise in futility with the hardware I have? Is video capture with Linux even possible with these, or should I start shopping for something else?
I have a digital camcorder, an analog camcorder, and a set top dvr.
I want to get video and audio material from them onto my notebook (i.e. I don't have any PCI slots, etc. to plug a video capture card into).
My notebook runs kubuntu karmic Linux with Windows XP (in a VM).
It has USB 2.0, firewire, PCI card, and Express Card interfaces.
I am looking for any reasonable way to do this.
All three devices have composite video out and left and right audio out RCA jacks. The digital camcorder also has USB and firewire ports, but didn't come with any software (and AFAIK the software has long since become unavailable).
Plugging the digital camcorder into my notebook via USB or firewire cables didn't do much of anything in either Windows or Linux.
Awhile ago, I bought the Hauppauge USB-Live 2 video capture device (it's a smart cable that's supposed to convert from the RCA plugs to USB), but had no luck getting it to work in my XP vm and very limited results under Linux - with a lot of help from a fellow lug member.
Under Linux, I tried using polaris.
At this point, I just want to get the job done any way I can, but since the devices are still in use, it's not a one-shot deal, so I need a solution that will continue to work. I'd prefer it in Linux (where it would also have access to more computing power), but XP would be fine too. If I need a different interface/converter, I will buy one if it's not too expensive.
Soon, I will also have access to my partner's new notebook, but haven't reconfigured it yet. When I do, it will be running kubuntu lucid with Windows 7 in a VM.
I am getting myself set up to create a series of Linux based how to videos, with the first being on building a Debian box for general web use and document creation, etc. on "recycled" hardware, starting at the very beginning, even going so far as to include how to download a netinstall iso and make it into a burnable CD.
So anyway, one very important ability I need for this project decent video capture capability. I need to be able to capture the output of the install into a proper video format, on which I can provide commentary about what is going on on the screen.
I have another Debian box that is equipped with a bt878 TV/Video capture card, and the box I am using for the Enlightenment project I posted about many times recently has a Geforce 5600FX. Last night, I ran a cable from the S-Video out on the GeForce to the composite in on the capture card (had to go composite since I don't have an S-Video cable long enough to cross the room... Cable used has an adapter to switch to a standard RCA cable.
So, after getting the two hooked up, I got XAWTV installed on the capture box, and rebooted the other computer. With XAWTV running, I was able to see the boot up process going through the capture card. So I think I am on the right track.
But (and isn't there always a big but?), the captured video leaves a lot to be desired. Here is what the final AVI file looks like: Warning. This is a big file
As you can see, the video quality is mighty poor. And it wasn't just the final video either. It looked this bad in XAWTV as well. So, is there any way to improve the video quality in XAWTV; and also, how about increasing the app's resolution since the tiny square of video is not easily readable, and I will need it to be legible on a full size display?
If XAWTV is unable to do this, then can anyone here recommend and alternate video capture app that would be up to the task at hand? Also would like an app that will actually save my settings, as XAWTV always reverts to whatever the default settings were when I shut it down and restart it.
In addition to improving the quality of the S-Video output, I also need some recommendations on how to reduce the filesize when capturing the video. The original, before Photobucket converted it to flv was an avi file over 10MB, which is really inefficient for my needs.
Finally, can anyone recommend a PCI video card that has S-Video output (must be a 4 pin S-Video connector), and has at least 8MB of video RAM? Or does some kind soul here have one lying about that they may be willing to part with inexpensively?
So, a summary of this post...
1: How do I get XAWTV to provide S-Video capture that is actually readable?
2: How do I get XAWTV to record in a higher resolution?
3: How do I get XAWTV to save my ******** settings?
4: If any of the above 3 are not possible, what are some other alternate video capture apps to try?
5: Hook me up with a 8MB or higher PCI video card that also does S-Video out? (4 pin S-Video connector is a must).
There is an udp video stream accessible only on the local network, but I need to access it outside of the network. I have Linux machine (multiple actually) with root access.There is a small utility that makes the stream accessible on the local machine on port 1234.
./ping -h streamserver -p 1234
If I run it I can access the stream using vlc or mplayer.
mplayer udp://@:1234 vlc udp://@:1234
Now, I'm trying to create a port foward from my remote machine and access the port, but it is failing.
Is there a way that I can specify the height and with of the stream on the command line? From what I read, it looks like a #transcoder option would work, but I cant seem to figure it out. The above command is working, and I can view the stream, but it's extremely slow, and continuously freezes and buffers. My thinking is that if I can reduce the scale of the video.
I've looked around and found some programs avaialable in linux to stream video. I'm looking to stream to my PS3 but would like to be able to stream to my other computers. I would like the program to transcode too. I'm really looking for opinions on which one to use. I tried PS3 Media Server, it worked fine but it tended to be a resource hog. Also, I had trouble seeing it on other computers.
I'm running Debian Squeeze on an old AMD 3000+ but that will be updated here in the future. This is all internal personal network. Most computers will be on wired lan.Opinions? Ease of configuration, ease of use, stablilty?
I am watching streaming video via Firefox and Flash player. The data rates are too slow so I am getting choppy audio and video. How do I download the clip so I can play it back later. The video is coming from a tourism web site.
I have created several DVDs from my camcorder (sony handycam DCR-HC21 NTSC); however, the recordings are too long. I would like to capture smaller segments of these and load them online to share with family and friends.I would like to know what is the most recommended software for this task. I am running Ubuntu 9.10.I would have done this by using a firewire cable directly attached from the camcorder to my laptop, but my laptop has only USB ports. So I ended up creating DVDs using an stand alone Video Recordable DVD Drive.
How do I capture video from my JVC GR-DF470 MiniDV camera into 10.04 Lucid.PiViTi looks good for an editing app, and I've installed OpenShot as well, but neither have a way of capturing the video from a camera. I used Kino previously in 8.04 Hardy, but it was buggy at best in 9.10 Karmic; I've just installed it in 10.04, but capture keeps stopping after 2 or 3 seconds. I also tried kdenlive, but the audio capture has a lot of 'noise' that is louder than the voices on the tape, and once it finishes capturing video, it doesn't display a 'Save' dialogue as it is supposed to - so that wasn't very successful either.So what can I use to capture video from a MiniDV Camera via Firewire.
I am working in a script I have, to capture video with sound from my capture board, wich is a clone of the pico2000. This script was working in Ubuntu 9.10 untill I reformated my machine and instaled the Ubuntu 10.10, 64 bits. The machine is an AMD Athlon II, 2.6GHz with 3 GBytes of Ram. The former script was:
This is on Karmic Koala 9.10. The video displays fine via guvcview using a Logitech webcam. The trouble is the capturing of the video. With .AVI, I've tried different video formats (MPEG-4, flash, etc.) and none of them will play. The generated .avi file seems to grow with data, but the result is just unplayable -- it just hangs, thinking it's playing. Is there a troubleshooting page or something to figure out what the problem I'm having with guvcviewer is?
I'm trying to make a stop motion video using StopMotion but can't get the program to capture any video off of my Logitech webcam. Only a black screen appears when I click the "camera" button and alternates between a brief green screen.
i have used many Hex Editors in windows, almost all had comparison features, even notepad++ to an extent could do this. I have 2 binary files, i just want to compare the differences easily and graphically, in windows HexWorkshop did this with the click of a button. I have tried 5-6 editors from the ubuntu repos but none have this option
2) Is there any desktop video capturing software that are more catered for tutorials etc where the whole desktop is captured. (Camtasia for windows i know it a massive bit of kit, but thats the sort of software im on about)
I have tried recordMyDesktop, XVidCap and a few others. However, they capture XServer and therefore things like desktop effects arent recorded. I have used VLCs screen capture which to be honest is better than the other 2 software i mentioned for recording the whole screen, but options are very limited.
I am working in Fedora FC11 with: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; nl; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20091105 Fedora/3.5.5-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5.5
In the following site I cannot see the video stream:[URL]...Choosing "TW1 Livestream" should gives a video stream, but it gives a black screen. Clicking on that black windows gives a text: Waiting for video.
A German text shows that the actual Version from Windows Media Players should be installed.In the past I could see video there, but after an upgrade it does not work any more.Looking in aboutlugins I see following Windows Media Player plugins:

I'm trying to us ushare to stream music and video to my 360. I have ushare setup and my 360 sees ushare but none of the files I'm trying to stream. When I run ushare -x it only sees the two folders I'm sharing and none of the files.
I wonder if anyone here has succeeded in streaming the video of a local webcam to the internet? Some research has turned up webcam_server Project Home Page but unfortunately it only supports v4l, not v4l2 and is no longer maintained. It seems to be possible with VLC server, but I'm a bit reluctant, because their repo is said to break other things. I still have 11.1 here.
