I have a torrentbox. The special thing about this torrent box is that it's custom built, it has Windows 7 installed and I have full control over it using TightVNC. At the moment I'm using uTorrent WebUI and FTP do download the files. But I'm thinking - When I download a 1,5 hour long video in 30 minutes, wouldn't it be theoretically possible to just WATCH the movie directly from the torrentbox? Obviously this can't be dont using FTP since it makes you download the entire file, BUT:
Is there some other way to fool your OS into thinking that this is a local folder, and get media players like VLC or GOM player to play video files directly? This would be a monumental time- and space saver for me.(I have both Windows and Linux Mint on my PCs)
I use deluge and it worked for a while then randomly I got this error message when trying to download a .torrent file:"/tmp/Manchester_Orchestra___I_m_Like_A_Virgin_Losing_A_ ___-1.torrent could not be opened, because an unknown error occurred.Try saving to disk first and then opening the file."
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.
I am going to purchase an IC-3030 camera. I want to access the video stream and download it as it happens, but not by using the Edimax-supplied video utility, as the computer will be running Linux. I am unable to find in the user manual whether I can access the stream directly or not. How can I access the video stream directly from an Edimax IC-3030 camera?
setup a media server in Linux which streams video over the internet? Is it easy to do this? I want a server that will actually encode video in real time to allow it to stream over sometimes slow or unreliable networks. Basically, I want a server that works on the internet. I have a directory with a bunch of video files, and want to make this accessible to myself remotely. For other situations, I found great and useful software (such as the PS3 media server). I'd like to find something equally as useful for streaming video over the internet.
I have access to backup server via rsync protocol (only rsync, nothing else). Now, I want to fetch file from there (which is .tar.gz) and pass it directly to tar command, without saving the archive in local filesystem. To visualize, with ssh access I could:
ssh remote_host cat backup.file.tar.gz | tar xzf - And I will get uncompressed backup locally, without actually storing .tar.gz on local machine. Is it possible to achieve when using rsync?
I don't know why, but I can't seem to just play video files (stream them) directly through the internet using MPC or any other media player. It is a bit weird, because I think I was able to just a month ago. I have made some changes to the general setup of the apache server, but nothing major, and I have no chance of reversing it all.
Instead, when I try opening the url using "Open file" it doesn't just open it an begin playing from the internet, but instead appears to be frozen. However, If I let it be "frozen" long enough, it will eventually play the file, indicating that it has downloaded the entire file to a temp location on the hard drive.
Is it something with the permissions? Actually, I went and made everything in /var/www/ 777, as it is not known by a domain name or registered anywhere. I am just connecting though my IP address as the server is located locally. Even this didn't help.
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 working on some scheduled task script files to keep nightly backups of some of our database information in place, and it's a bit annoying when they blow up. I know how to redirect stdout and stderr to a flat file I can view when I come in, and I know that 2>&1 maps them both to the same file (whatever was named in 1). However, I'm running into some cron-time situations where it's easier to have the two streams together, and other cron-time situations where it's easier to have them separated. I can't really tell which is going to happen; is there some way I could create both kinds of output file for my scripts, so that I've got a std_err only file and an interleaved std_out/std_err file?
Note: I've looked at the 'tee' command, but I don't think it will work for what I'm after. 'tee' appears to only work with stdout; I'm trying to work with stderr.
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?
Is there any program/script that can create a torrent file for each file in a directory? I have been looking all over but can't seem to find anything of the sort. I have 700+ files I REALLY don't want to make my self.
I am working in Fedora FC11 with: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; nl; rv:18.104.22.168) 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:
Windows Media Player Plug-in Bestandsnaam: gecko-mediaplayer-wmp.so Gecko Media Player 0.9.8 Video Player Plug-in for QuickTime, RealPlayer and Windows Media Player streams using MPlayer QuickTime Plug-in 7.4.5 Bestandsnaam: gecko-mediaplayer-qt.so Gecko Media Player 0.9.8

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.
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?
I am trying to stream a video between two Ubuntu 9.04 stations using GStreamer. The following code is run on the emitting machine: Code: gst-launch videotestsrc ! queue ! ffenc_mjpeg ! udpsink port=5000 host=192.168.1.100 -v And the following on the receiving machine with IP 192.168.1.100: Code: gst-launch udpsrc port=5000 caps="image/jpeg, width=320, height=240, framerate=30/1" ! queue ! ffdec_mjpeg ! ximagesink sync=true -v Whatever the order I'm running them (emit first or receive first), I'm getting the following error once both are connected (I can see the Ethernet lights blinking):
ERROR*: element /GstPipelineipeline0/GstUDPSrc:udpsrc0*: internal error data flow. gstbasesrc.c(245: gst_base_src_loop (): /GstPipelineipeline/GstUDPSrc:udpsrc0: streaming task paused, reason not-negotiated (-4) Execution ended after 3191625000 ns.
I need to be able to schedule and automate the recording process, to record DV with audio directly to the hard drive. Can anyone tell me if this is possible with linux? Can anyone suggest hardware/applications that would work to accomplish this? This is not for security purposes. This is to record classes that will be made available online.
