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.
I get the following message when I try to install the package:Gstreamer streaming media framework "ugly" plug-insPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-11.92-x86_64I'm running the Fedora 12 beta.
I'm dual-booting Win7 and Ubuntu Maverick on both a laptop and a desktop, of course using Ubuntu for as much as I can. Now, I've also got a new Sony Bravia TV that is connected to my home network. I've found it so incredibly easy to stream media from my computers to the TV under Win7 and it really bites me because I want it to be like that in Ubuntu too. But it isn't. sources for streaming media from Ubuntu to a network-connected TV?
I am trying to stream a live dvb feed to windows media player on a number of desktops. I have VLC and all the codecs etc installed.
I am starting my stream with the following command:
After vlc loads, I get the following error:
It seems your FFMPEG (libavcodec) installation lacks the following encoder: MPEG Audio layer 1/2/3.
If you don't know how to fix this, ask for support from your distribution.
This is not an error inside VLC media player. Do not contact the VideoLAN project about this issue. After some searching around, I found a guide on setting up ffmpeg at [url] which I have followed. I am still getting the error.
Do I need to add any other codecs to make this work?
how to stream media securely over the internet from my desktop to my laptop.
I have a ton of movie and tv shows on my hard drive and instead of carrying around a backup of them on an external drive, I'd like to be able to type in a web address to view a list of files available to just stream.
Just spent the last 4 or so hours trying to get my Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook edition system to play streaming audio from this link: [url]
I have managed to download the relevant M Player, but when I click on the streaming audio link it pulls up the player, then nothing happens. It says "stopped" and when I click on the play icon nothing happens.
When I cut and paste the relevant link into M Player directly it looks as it it will work, it seems to buffer for about a second, then nothing happens again.
I have installed "Ubuntu Restricted Extras" and the "Medibuntu" repo is enabled. If this remains a codec issue (which it feels like) how do I find what codec I'm missing?
I am unable to play any radio streams such as those found at www.jazz24.org and [URL]
When I click on them, whether trying to use their "player" or (in case of jazz24) clicking on "mp3 stream" ... the result is simply crashing the browser, whether firefox or chrome. If I click the mp3 stream, banshee opens with an hourglass-type icon but doesn't do anything.
My local music files play fine on Banshee and I CAN listen to streaming baseball on mlb.com (which is a Flash-based player).
I have Lucid 64 bit. For some reason, I feel like these radio stations used to work, though I can't pinpoint when they stopped working. Can it be that the entire world of internet radio is closed to me on Linux? For some reason i doubt it, there must be something I'm doing wrong here?
I've tried on a couple of mailing lists to get a decent response, but it's been pretty shabby, so I thought I'd try the expertise of this fine community.I have a, relatively, ancient iMac G4 "Flowerpot" running Debian Testing and XFCE that I was using as a home music server. I write "was" because I could simply mount it using SSHFS from work, but now they have decided to become very restrictive with ports and for the life of me I can't get it working. I've already set-up GNUMP3D on it, but that also uses a port work won't allow.
So, in essence, I'm looking for suggestions on a Web-based application I could use to stream my music from home. Flash does not work on PPC, so anything Adobe-related is out of the question. Also, Java seems "iffy" at best... It's also worth note all of my music is in OGG format, so the program would have to be able to play said format.
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.)
on almost every website i've tried with streaming media the media will not play. i don't know if this is something to do with the proxy server i have to use or a lack of plug-ins on firefox or something else entirely. (they're not blocked i can get them on a windows pc on the same network) [url] this one i can play from the command line with mpalyer but in a browser i get 'waiting for video' and the status bar says 'done' [url] this one i have control of the player buttons but it just says 'buffering' and the status bar says 'done'
on these two i have control of the player but the status bar says 'transfering data' then 'done and nothing plays [url] this one plays! why's it different? videos plays. bbc iplayer crashes firefox. $ uname -a linux seven 2.6.31-20-generic #58-ubuntu smp fri mar 12 05:23:09 utc 2010 i686 gnu/linux $ firefox -v mozilla firefox 3.5.9, copyright (c) 1998 - 2010 mozilla.org

I was just wondering if there is a software package that will allow my linux server to process video files (mainly AVI and MKV) so that they can be streamed over the network or Internet. I obviously wouldn't be able to stream files between 600MB and 8GB over the Internet and have it play smoothly. What my plan is to setup something so that I can stream my videos over the Internet when I am not home. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Or maybe there's a software that can break the video file into "parts" and only send out blocks at specific intervals?
Using (and enjoying) Ubuntu 10.04; I am trying to stream audio from local ABC "(Australian Broadcasting Corp.") which offers "Real Player" or "Windows Media Player" options in its various on-line transmissions. Cannot get either to work. Have loaded Rythmbox but doesn't respond. =
I recently moved (~65mi). I have all my files on my Linux Server at home. I want to find a way to have 2 Ubuntu Workstations (at my office/apartment) and Laptop to all be able to stream my media from my home server. (The server get about 600kbps upstream).
Accessing the files I found OpenVPN and NFS to work great - however streaming my videos hasn't been so good - its extremely choppy and unwatchable. I realize there is no perfect solution, but is there anything that could be setup to buffer/prefetch/compress videos making them tolerable to watch?
I would like to develop a simple media player application in linux for streaming videos. My objective is to get a good understanding of a multimedia framework. Hence, wanted to start with such an example.
I have a Mandriva linux box connected by cable to my router. When I stream audio using this box it crashes all the wireless computers on my network. There is no effect on wired computers. All but the one computer are windows (xp or vista). The affected wireless computers are not able to even find my wireless network. I have to reboot the router to get them online.
Each time when I start Banshee Media Player it crashes or I get the error message fatal error, I want to know what occurred to Banshee Media of being in a such state and what could I do to fix this problem.
i run ubuntu 9.10. i have updated all installed packages. i run a 32bit 3.6 ghz intel p4 dual core with three monitors running on two video cards. all this works correctly. i am able to play video in video player and audacious2 on any monitor.
i'm trying to run a upnp media server for my house. myself and both my tenants have playstation 3s, and i would like to host music, music videos, original content, and the backup copies of legally purchased dvds over the network. i recently converted from windows xp, and all of my media files were created by vlc on windows xp, ripped with winamp, edited and rendered with sony vegas, or downloaded from videos. i have tried both mediatomb (from the repository) and fuppes (from subversion) and had the same result with both.
basically, whenever the media center tries to populate the database and search the files, ffmpeg returns an error that crashes the media center. i do not know enough to implement better error handling in the source. both media servers, when running in the terminal, eventually return the same error message when scanning my sepearate hard drive for media. (~100gb of mp3, avi, mpeg, and mp4 files)
the process then ends.the weird thing is that this does not happen when i disable mp4 files in mediatomb (although i have not figured out how to replicate this feature in fuppes) so i have reason to believe that something in the metadata for mp4 files is throwing ffmpeg off. even if the metadata is bad in the mp4 file, it shouldn't cause a crash.
i tried to compile mediatomb without ffmpeg support, but the ./configure script returned errors whenever i tried to append an option to the configure command. i then reinstalled all the ffmpeg packages in the symantec package manager and still no luck.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and recently upgraded Banshee Media Player which I had been using for months no problem. I'm not sure what version I was using before and I'm not sure what version I'm using now. I assume 1.8.0 or higher. Here's what I get when I type 'banshee' into the terminal:
I'm running banshee 1.5.2 on opensuse 11.2 (x64) with KDE 4.3.1 release 6. Each time I select the Import Media option banshee simply crashes. I have reinstalled/upgraded banshee from scratch but still get the same issue. Here is what I see in the debug (banshee-1 --debug) log at the point of the crash.

I successfully installed darwin streaming server .. I stream Audio through internet well but videos I can stream locally in my network only .. when I am connected to internet outside my network .. it doesn't stream I think their must be ports opened for that .. or any 1 have any ideas .. the audio is streamed on port 8000 .. video is streamed on port 7070 but locally only .. I opened those 2 ports in my router only the audio is working .. also I opened ports 554,7170 disabled the firewall of the router .. is it a problem of ports or something else .
I have a dual boot on a netbook with windows and fedora13. When I am on my fedora boot and I try to watch streaming video it comes through in waves or not at all. I do not have the same problems on the alternate boot. There are other performance comparisons where the windows boot runs smoother and faster. Is there any work I can do in order to optimise my fedora boot in this capacity?
I was trying to change the mounting point of a usb external drive from '/media/disk' to '/media/Movies'
Here is were the stupid part takes over... I right clicked on the desktop icon for the device and selected Properties. From there I selected the Volume tab and in there I changed the mounting point to '/media/Movies' It accepted it and said the changed would take place when I unmounted it and remounted it. However, when I did this it now says it cannot be mounted as it says mount_point contains invalid characters usually /
Unfortunately, now I cannot get back into the properties to remove my error.
Ubuntu10.10.i want a media player with all media codecs.it should able to play all formats of videos and audios so please suggest me a media player.(i used km player in windows i want a media player like that)
I have been using this thread for a couple of days and just getting exposed to the vast world of ubuntu after succesfully partitoning the hard drive through a live cd. (a copy of linux for dummies book)So naturally after getting adjusted to the new os I started seeking for downloadable media and applications.Started with flashplayer last night and installed after watching some videos.But when I tried the same thing with vlc through the terminal command; sudo apt-get vlc
The video streaming seased because they wouldn't load it stays searching forever! Now ..... doesn't work.I am afraid that by tampering with the command it also affected the flash player file.This is an ethernet connection , 100 mb/s, netgear router.
I downloaded the minimal boot image and installation CDs for F12 i386. On booting either I get the following messages: Code: This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: cmov Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU Looks to me like the installation media for i386 doesn't have an i386 kernel! I'm trying to install to an i586 CPU.
