OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Cross-Platform Media Manager For MP3 Players
Jan 25, 2010
I want to manage music on a mobile phone. It's an MP3/MP4 player SmartPhone iPhone clone from this (de-spammed) address:
I want an app that can be used on both windows and Linux computers and that is as good as iTunes for managing media. What do you recommend?
I am looking to find a program similar to nm-applet which can run on NetBSD. So far, I have found wpa_supplicant and wpa_gui. Am I on the right tracks? Basically, I want to scan for wireless networks and connect to them. When I start wpa_gui, I get "Could not find status from wpa_supplicant".
I'm running openSUSE 11.2 on KDE, although the problem persists on other desktops. I followed the instructions on SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE, as well. If anyone needs any other information, please let me know. It worked before, I don't know what caused it to stop working.
As well, I've tried to install the restricted formats, but even when my audio did work, it wouldn't play them. I followed the instructions specific to my version on the restricted formats guide.
There is no sound when I play a movie. The only mediaplayer that plays the audio is kaffeine. Amarok plays MP3 just fine. All the rest does not. Not vlc, (s)mplayer. An avi,mp3 or mkv file it does not matter. I have installed all restricted codecs but I had to doe it 2 times, the first time I did it the 1click method, but the installation what's interrupted.
In suse 11.2 when play a video file the media players eats up to 50% cpu and pulseaudio another 18-20% with compiz turn on, when i turn the compiz off media player goes down to 7-8 % and pulseaudio 1-2%. With audio files the picture is different - 2-3 % sometimes 7% pulseaudio and there is not matter if compiz is turned off or on.Is there some kind of configuration should be done ?
24 hours ago kaffeine, vlc, smplayer and mplayer were all functional. Now after a software update only smplayer is functional. Kaffeine has been my favorite player since version 0.97 but recently only vlc would play all formats of videos so I got used to it. All packages have been installed from packman. Kaffeine now crashes with...
socket(): Address family not supported by protocol ion@apollo:~> 1 errors in postprocess string "hb:a,vb:a,dr:a" [mpeg4 @ 0x874d700] Invalid and inefficient vfw-avi packed B frames detected KCrash: Application 'kaffeine-xbu' crashing...

VLC plays sound but no video... VLC media player 1.1.9 The Luggage (revision exported) Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_ADDRESS") Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_BUS_TYPE") [0x80503fc] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface. Blocked: call to setlocale(6, "") Blocked: call to setlocale(6, "") Blocked: call to putenv("LANGUAGE=") .....
And mplayer crashes as well with a report that's too long to post. Well I can live without mplayer. What am I doing wrong. Accepting updates perhaps?
Only a few minutes ago, my sound just seemed to disappear while I was listening to some Dream Theater.
The onboard sound is disabled in the BIOS as I'm using another card. Rhythmbox won't play anything. Starting a song just leaves the progress bar sitting at the start. Sound preferences shows everything up at full. I tried modding the volume, but I can't move it (It moves for like a millisecond then hits 100% again).
It's a C-Media sound card. It was working perfectly prior to a few minutes ago.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 dual booted with XP on a laptop. Whenever I try to play any video files, even just bog standard avi files, the media player just shuts down and disappears. This has happened with the movie player that comes with the OS as well as VLC. I also tried out Dragon Player and the files seem to load up and when played the timeline slider just skips across to the end in about 5 seconds but no picture is shown during this time. The codecs all appear to be installed fine even though I know that VLC doesn't require them. My video card is ATI and I know that it works fine as these files play alright when booted up into XP, Hi-Def included.
I am running Maverick on Asus k52J laptop. I recently updated my clementine to 0.6 and since then all my music players are crashing on song play (includes banshee, clementine and rhythmbox). I removed and reinstalled all players, changed repositories and downgraded, reinstalled qt and python but nothing seems to fix the problem with these players.I installed some other players (audacious, exaile, vlc, foobnix) and they are working pretty well. But I am addicted to clementine and banshee.
I use suse 11.2 86_64 on a comp with Nvidia Geforce 8300 on the motherboard using 512 Mb from main memory, AMD X2 Dual Core 4600+ RAM 8 GB DDR2 Dual channel and have following problem - from time to time when play a video (streaming or playing a file with any video player - vlc, smplayer, kaffeine etc.) the sound suddenly disappears short afterwards everything freezes even mouse, the hard disk work as wild and after 5 minutes or so the players quit and everything comes alive again. Long time I could not see the process responsible for that because even screen freezes, once I had the luck and noticed a process kswapd0 appearing in time of such an event. I googled and there were similar complying connected with that daemon. I read it will be a good idea to minimize the amount of swap, which in my case is 2 Gb , I unmounted the entire swap and restarted and the OS remains only on RAM 7,5 GB . The event appeared again and there were significant different, it obviously was shorter in time (about a minute) and mouse freezes for short period of time, but again the player quits on the end of the event. Is there a way that the process could be managed in some way as it is very annoying appearing all of a sudden with no warning or something ? Of course if that memory shifting or cleaning is the main problem, again it happens only in case player works and not every time, it is random.
I recently put Linux back on my laptop (Vector) and I am trying to get any of the media players on it to recognize and play the music on my desktop, which is running Windows 7 Ultimate with WMP streaming music over my wireless network. I was wondering if this can be done, or if these features have yet, if ever, to be implemented.
What are the availability`s for cross platform sql , gui, application development using raw code in the Debian environment. I would rather work with raw code. I have been working with PHP MySQL, need to advance to Universe Application Development cross platform Raw Code for both mobile and desk top.
I'm looking for a way to create a cross-platform GUI application. The result must be able to run on linux, windows and OSX. And it must be a point-and-click GUI.For development I should be able to rely on Open-Source tools on linux only (that means no access to Windows or OSX)The target should be able to install the result relatively easily, that means any dependencies must be freely available, and the setup steps must be very minimal (probably means no installing development tools or running compilers)
My first thought was java, but the standard Swing GUI can look a bit ugly on some platforms. So I'm wondering if there's anything else. My next thought was C++/Qt, but I don't think I can cross-compile this from Debian for Windows or OSX, can I? Next I thought of python and PyQt, but it looks like PyQt isn't available for OSX. And finally I even thought of making some kind of web application running on a tiny web server of some kind, then accessing it with a native browser, but I'm pretty sure this doesn't meet the "easy to install" criteria. I'm finding this so tricky, do all the existing cross-platform applications use natively-compiled C++ for this? Or is there an obvious alternative that I'm overlooking?
I need to transfer a 4Gbyte file from my Linux netbook to a friends WinXP desktop. And I'd like to it with a usb flash drive, but it can't handle a file larger than 2Gbyte. A limitation due to the underlying FAT32 filesystem. But I don't wish to reformat my usb as ext3 either.
So I need to split my 4GByte file into smaller chunks. And the 'split' utility needs to be available on both Linux and the WinXP operating systems.
I am looking for a cross-platform LAN IM software for use on my home network, i've got some windows vista & Debian boxes. Is there any such software? I have looked around sourceforge and freshmeat. I tried J-Lan Communicator, it didnt work
I recently faced a problem. At my college, I linked my laptop with my friend's laptop with an ad-hoc wifi network. I wanted to send him a file. I was running Ubuntu, and he was running XP. Unfortunately, I could not find an easy way to send him the file. Another problem I faced was when I wanted to transfer the contents of my hard disk to another computer. I had to install Filezilla server on the other computer, and upload the files from one computer to the other.
I feel that its a really cumbersome method of transferring files in the same network. Mobile phones have bluetooth, and a file can be sent to another mobile very easily without any fuss. Does anyone know whether any such program exists already? If not, I want to write such a program that will allow one user to add another user to a personal network, and send or recieve files and/or communicate in other ways. The only language I know is Python (self-taught). I was wondering what GUI framework to use. I've never written a GUI program before, and would like to hear your opinions. This will be a very basic program, and must be able to run on many platforms.
I want to learn how to create computer software/programs. I want to be able to design them to be cross platform (Win32, OSX, Linux). I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of courses I need to take for this? And would it be possible to study by myself and learn it for free?
Is there any equivalent of WaitFOrMultipleObjects on Linux?
I was finding a cross Platform library that allow you to run another program from your C++ application. I found POCO but it does not support functionality like WaitFOrMultipleObjects for both (linux and windows). I tried boost Process but its not official till now.
I'm trying to persuade my classmate migrating to linux but they always fall back to windows when homeworks require creating GUI (graphical user interface) applications. Not only because C# and Window forms/WPF is so sissily easy to use. But some teachers only test homework on Window machine. I have tried pyGTK and wxPython but they have some flaws. wxPython seem a little bit messy with so many look-alike class name and it's ID based event binding is somewhat awkward. pyGTK seems nice and neat but it doesn't have Mac port yet.
I have made a game for Linux and want to release it soon (on linux & windows). Since its SDL/OpenGL and I dont do any special things it shouldn't be much porting to windows. Problem: Maintaining I have the game in code::blocks SDL project on Linux. So I got wine and installed wined Code::Blocks with MingW so I can cross compile on Linux. For another game I made, I used a Makefile which has "if" statements to set up compile variables. And everything else is totally identical to windows & linux (code, source files and etc...)
With codeblocks I got used to not having to worry about makefiles and it did well and I better focused on making the game rather than everytime a new file is added editing the makefile and etc... Is there some nice ways to have a cross platform environment to make it easy to make games for Linux and windows. I'm thinking of making my own system of auto-generating a makefile (essentially upgrading the setup I have for my previous game to auto add entry's to the makefile & some other stuff).
I would like to be able to store all my important details and passwords in such a way that it is encrypted, easy to get the information out and is cross-platform. Basically, I am thinking that if I kick the bucket that I would like to make it as easy as possible for others to be able to access this information using a pre-arranged password.
Ideally I would like the files to contain the program that is needed to extract the data i.e. importantinfoLinux.sh inportantinfoWin.exe (Just like a self-containing zip). I haven't found anything along those lines.
The things I am currently thinking of is:
1) A password database program that is cross-platform like KeePass. WIth the bundle contining the relevant installers for win, linux and OS X and the database file.
2) An AES encrypted zip of the data with relevant programs to open it e.g. 7-zip on windows, peazip on linux and OS X
Has anyone got any thoughts on this? Any self-containing java encryption apps?
I'm sure most of you know that making a file or folder hidden is simple in the Linux world: Add a period (.) before the name. However, if you were to save such a file or directory to a flash drive, it would only be hidden on Linux systems. If you plug the flash drive into a Windows machine, Windows will happily show the file.Is there a way to make cross-platform hidden files?
I want to be able to encrypt files on my netbook with Ubuntu 9.04 UNR and on my MacBook (Mac OS 10.6.2) and be able to exchange them and decrypt them on the other platform.The Ubuntu command Edit>Encrypt is so easy to use but works only on the netbook. I haven't, thus far, found a program to open them on the Mac or to create an encrypted file on the Mac that I can open on the netbook.
I was trying to setup a cross-platform development environment with qt, an thus looked for the qt-sdk package I used to install on my 32-bit machine.This package appears to have been deleted from 64-bit ubuntu maverick, but I do not understand the details...
- Has this package been renamed, or is there another one in place of it?
- Is this package going to be available again in the future?
PS: I am aware that one can install the sdk by downloading the installer, but for unattended install I prefer the apt package...
I am making a text search engine. I need to first convert binary documents to text. I want to go with cross-platform (we develop both on windows and linux) command line (so that I can get the output via python subprocess). What are the choices for this?
I guess I need to start off by saying that I am new to Fedora. Most of my media files come from iTune. therefore, I have download mplayer, xmm and Audacious to play the ACC, Mp4 and Mpv files. None of the media players play ACC or mp4 files. I downloaded the ACC plugins for mplayer, XMM and Audacious but it still does not work. Also Mplayer will not show show a video file, but the sound works. When I start mplayer the screen freezes and glitches. I have screen shots showing the glitch issue.
wasn't quite sure how to search for this the question always seemed to be too long and i'd get nothing related to my problem. its not a huge problem, but if i could fix it, that's be awesome
there's websites, such as videos, that i can't choose anything in the actual media player... to be more specific, it plays just fine, but it i wanted to pause, turn down the volume, rewind, or skip ahead, nothing happens, it acts as though i'm not clicking on anything. i guess its not a big deal, but just a little annoyance.
