General :: Firefox Unstable And Does Not Do Streaming Video - Audio

May 23, 2010

running ubuntu 8.04 dual boot with windows- need windows for avery label program, ibm via voice and access data base .chose 8.04 because of long term support. firefox is now unstable and does not do streaming video ' audio.[ustream in particular and others] usually i get the video but not the audio. sometimes the fox just closes and i can open it on the second try- sometimes not. skype does work. there may be a fix for the audio using libflash support program. where to get this& what to do with it is a problem.

perhaps it would be prudent to upgrade to 10.04 but this seems to be a work in progress and might lead me into further problems. on the other hand i could work up to ubuntu 9.10 if it would be more likely to work better the get to 10.04 when it is further along. i am pretty useless with the command line.on the whole ubuntu has worked well until this problem came up.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - With Streaming Media - Video Or Firefox Itself Seems To Freeze Up Every 10 Minutes

Mar 25, 2010

Linux and ubuntu. second my computer is single os with ubuntu 9.10. the problem i have is trying to watch any thing streaming media. Movies, music, like from ....., divx, or even megavideo which seems to work best right now.

What happens is that the video or firefox it self seems to freeze up every 10 minutes or so.

It may be that i need to increase the buffer memory size but i do not know how to.

I have updated my computer and firefox and installed and updated any possible add-ons that would fix the problem.

What im asking for is either a patch or add-on that will help this problem or how to run windows inside of ubuntu. (Im am tired of windows and ubunu has made my computer work so much faster, when i am sure that i know how to make this computer stable with what i need for internet use i will apply it to my other computer.)

General :: Streaming Video From Machine ?

Jun 13, 2011

It is possible (I'm sure it is but I don't know how), to stream video program played on one Linux computer equipped with DVD so it can be watched on another Linux machine? I have pretty fast Internet connection. I watch UNIX Academy training DVDs on a laptop, however I would rather stream it and watch on my netbook which is much lighter and more portable. Where should I start looking for a solution?

General :: Video Streaming Using Apache Reverse Proxy?

Jun 21, 2011

I have a question regarding the possibility of streaming video using an Apache web server configured as a reverse proxy. Suppose I have a local web server and areverse proxy that is abroad. I want users that are nearer the reverse proxy to be served by it and not my local web server. I know in general how to configure this and there is a lot of documentation. But can it be configured to support video file streaming without saving all the media content in the reverse proxy disk?

Ubuntu :: Streaming Video To Netbook?

Is this a limitation on my hardware or is there a better way to "stream" these vids?

Ubuntu Servers :: Streaming Directly From /www/video/foo.avi

Jan 4, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IP Camera Video Streaming

Apr 6, 2010

My local priest has asked me if I can use my computer skills to stream church services live for people who can't make it to church.I said, sure thing! I thought it would be simple, but the deeper I look into it, the more lost I have become!Here's the tech requirements:

- A camera with good optical zoom and focused on the altar (the camera will be stationed at an unobtrusive point at the back of the church on the choir balcony)
- Everything must be wireless (power is available on choir balcony to power the camera).
- Sound should be synchronised perfectly with the video (have access to the church PA system - located behind altar)
- the internet connection should be able to upload the stream to a virtual server (i.e. with root access) that's accessible to the web with ease. What upload speed would I need? Would 256k be enough? HD video is not required - ..... quality would be great. We can upgrade to HD at a later point in time!
- What bandwidth requirement would my server need if say 1000 users were connected? Seeing as they would most likely be locals, would just one stream be sent to the local exchange and that exchange would send out the stream to the 1,000 users, or would each user have to have a dedicated connection to the server?
- Say I bought a camcorder with HDMI output, what kind of processing power would I need to convert this to compressed video? (I've got an old Pentium 4 and an AMD64 2.0GHz lying idle in my bedroom and it would be great to make use of 'em instead of chucking 'em on the skip)
- I'd like all this to be done so that HTML5 browsers can access the video, resorting to flash if necessary
- I'd also like to be able to power down all the hardware with ease: i.e. set a timer. I'm sure ubuntu can do this with ease? What about configuring the camera to zoom in every time it is powered on? Can linux control the zoom on a camcorder?
- Am I totally nuts?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Video Over The Internet?

Jun 16, 2010

I've got a NAS mounted on a linux machine, and here at another location, I have my Ubuntu laptop. I'm able to remotely, securely mount the directory my NAS is mounted on in the linux machine onto my laptop via sshfs, giving me remote access to my NAS via my laptop.The problem I'm having is.. even though I have a high downstream at the laptop end, and a hefty 1mb upstream at my home, I still can't quite stream the movies I have stored on it. I can stream them, but there is a lot of stuttering.I've tried messing around w/ various options w/ mplayer, but I can only improve it slightly at best. Am I missing something? Is it a size issue that it comes down to? The files are roughly 700mb for a 1 1/2 - 2 hr avi file.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Video Is Choppy

Aug 8, 2010

When I play streaming video on hulu or other sites it is choppy. However, the sound is fine. Video files play fine when I download them.I experience this problem in both Firefox and Chrome. I have a 10MB connection on other Linux desktops the streaming video is fine.I imagine it is a flash issue, but I have the latest flash v10.1.The other solution would be a video downloader for streaming video. I have not found one that works on Linux.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Video Is No Good

Nov 1, 2010

I am elevating this thread up a level from [url] . Ubuntu 9.10 no longer streams without the screen pausing and going black every 2 minutes! Our product was just going into production and now we need to hopefully find a version of Ubuntu that streams video! We couldn't go with Unbuntu 10.04 because the video streaming was 30% slower than 9.10.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Log Into CNN Live Streaming Video / Fix It?

Aug 3, 2011

I'm not sure this is, strictly speaking, an Ubuntu problem (although it may be), but people around here seem to be more knowledgeable than they are anywhere else, so it's worth a try.

CNN recently started offering its news station on live streaming video for those who get CNN from a participating cable provider. For better or worse, I get CNN on Comcast, so no problem there.

Except for lagging video because lack of processing speed, it all works fine on my netbook, on which I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed.

But on my desktop, where I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, no such luck. The problem is the same regardless of whether I'm using Opera, Firefox or Chrome.

I can go to and get the standard video streams (not CNN live) just fine. When I click on the "Live" button and then the "Unlock Live TV" button, I get, as expected, the "Sign in to watch live TV" dialogue box. So I click on Comcast, log in correctly, and am returned to the main screen. The page appears to be loading correctly, and then I get the "Sign in to watch live TV" dialogue box again. No matter how many times I try, that's what I keep on getting.

If this didn't work on my netbook, I'd just assume that for some reason the setup is Linux-unfriendly, but now I'm determined to get this working.

I've checked my plugin settings on my browsers and nothing seems amiss. I've tried deleting all cookies, persistent storage, Flash cookies and all such things, but to no avail. Even though I had the most recent version, I even uninstalled and reinstalled Flash, but that didn't change anything.
