I currently have a Monitor which accepts VGA, DVI and HDMI input, it is connected to my PC with a VGA Cable and my X-Box with an HDMI Cables, to switch between them all I have to do is click a button on the monitor to switch the input source.I was wondering if it is possible to get the HDMI stream while the VGA is connected and push that to the monitor in the form of a Window on the screen.Does anyone know of an application to do this, or if it is even remotely possible?EDIT: I just noticed VLC Media Player has the option to stream my desktop, would it be possible to use that to stream from the HDMI input too?
how to have alsa convert a digital sound stream to analogue before it is sent to the hdmi out? I would like to modify asound.conf. I do not have gnome as a desktop so I need to manually input the changes to asound.conf. The reason I ask is. I have sound going out of my acer revo to both spdif and hdmi. The spdif goes to my receiver and I want digital passthrough for that. The hdmi goes to my tv and I need it to be analouge before it gets to the tv. Right now, I get passthrough to both the spdif and hdmi. (the tv is all static) I want to have alsa convert the signal for the hdmi output only.
I went out to buy myself an nVidia G210 yesterday in order to play Quake Wars. I installed the 260.19 (latest from RPMFusion) nVidia drivers and 3D effects worked along with the game. What didn't work is the sound. I am using an HDMI cable to connect my monitor to the computer. It seems as though ALSA is not letting the digital stream through because when I play an audio file in Rhythmbox, PulseAudio Volume Control shows that the speakers are blasting music. This is strange, since nothing is coming out.

I am currently employing card 2, device 3 in my PulseAudio configuration (/etc/pulse/default.pa). How can I make ALSA read the digital stream from my HDMI cable?
I have a weird interaction between Linux and Windows with the HDMI output from my Dell Studio XPS 1645 and a Dell S2409W monitor. Whenever I reboot from Windows back over into Linux, the Input Color Format on the monitor has changed from RGB to YPbPr, and thus the colors are a pink'n'green mess. I can manually change the mode back to RGB but whenever the monitor goes to sleep it will come back as YPbPr! The only way I can fix it is to unplug the power cord and hold the power button for 5 seconds to reset the monitor -- after plugging the power cord back in then the color format will be correct again (RGB.) Or rebooting back over into Windows the color format is correct.
This never happens rebooting from Linux to Linux, Linux to Windows or Windows to Windows -- only from Windows to Linux.This is on Fedora 12 but I don't know that the version particularly matters -- I've only ever used Fedora 12 on this new hardware so I can't say that it does or doesn't work with anything else.
I have a small 'nettop' computer that only has a HDMI output. The only monitors I have only have VGA input. Is there a way to use a HDMI-to-VGA or HDMI-to-DVI + DVI-to-VGA connection setup to hookup this computer to my monitor?Let me make it clear that I am not looking for a high-quality, high-definition display. This is going to be hooked up to a monitor only until I have the system up and running and then it'll be a ssh-only headless server
is it possible to stream a window from X, as opposed to forwarding it over SSH? I've used X-forwarding before so that I could ssh into another computer and open up a graphical program and have it show up on mine. But as far as I know, that window only opens on your computer, not on the computer the program is actually running on. Is it possible for me to open a window on my computer, and to sort of X stream it to another computer that has X so they can watch what I'm doing in that window?
I recently got a real fancy unidirectional microphone, but when I go and use it, something strange happens. The mic is a mono mic, but when I record something, it appears to think it's stereo. Instead of having the same thing on both channels, it puts it all in the left channel, and silence on the right channel.
I tried fiddling with alsamixer. In capture (F4), adjusting the "Capture" device has an effect. However, it doesn't do anything useful. Lowering the right channel to zero does nothing, lowering the left channel to zero creates silence, and disabling the right channel creates silence.
In my System>Preferences>Sound (or pavucontrol, or what-have-you), there are "Analog Stereo Input" and "Analog Stereo Duplex" options there, but no "Analog Mono Input" or "Analog Stereo Output + Analog Mono Input" options (the latter being ideal).
Something interesting, though, if I do this: Code: arecord -r 96000 -D pulse -c 1 -vv -V mono /dev/null it works correctly and outputs on both channels. But if I do Code: arecord -r 96000 -D pulse -c 2 -vv -V stereo /dev/null then it's back to the same behavior. The VU meter on the second command shows the left channel going up and down as I make noise, but the right one always at zero.
The machine does have a crap internal mic built in to the screen bezel. If I do either of the above commands, they both work correctly. The stereo VU shows the same activity for both channels.
The machine is a Eee 1015PED, which has Intel integrated sound. Something probably insignificant is that the mic has a 1/4 inch mono plug, and to get it to plug into the Eee, I needed to get a 1/4 female to 1/8 male adapter. The mic's 1/4 plug is mono (duh) and therefore two-conductor, but the adapter I got is stereo, or three conductor (L, R, GND). I don't know if this is tripping something in hardware to tell it it's stereo or something.
I tried the mic on my desktop, which has a SB Audigy 4 (the non-pro flavor) and that has the "Analog Mono Input" function, so that works fine. Is there some way to turn this stereo input into mono input?
I installed Lucid. I used to have Ubuntu 9.10 and to connect my iPod to my laptop's speakers. There was an option in 9.10 in the Sound Options to change the Mic Input into a Line Input. But now unfortunately I can't find it in Lucid have only 2 audio ports in the laptop: Headphone port, Mic port.
I want to create a script to send input to an already open window from the command line. The reason that I want to do this is to automatically control a game running on a emulator screen. So, for example, I want to send commands like "up" "up" "w" "s" ..
I recently installed gnome 3, using the ppa -> dist-upgrade -> install gnome-shell method. IBus used to work fine with gnome 2.3 and unity, but in gnome 3, the icon is still there, the deamon is still running (I presume) but no matter where i click, it always shows 'no input window'... (for example, i can't type anything other than English here...).
I run Natty 64x (new install) and have setup to use two seperate x servers and no xinerama. When I start my computer everything seems fine on both monitors but once desktop is loaded and I start an app in the second monitor, I can't type anything and the window borders are missing. If I type "DISPLAY:=0.1 metacity" the problem gets fixed but I get an error that a window manager is running already.
I have asked for a video capturing software before but recommend a GOOD screen recorder where you can select the window/window size the axis and also a good editing software which will render/export into FULL 720p HD
I installed Fedora 11 on my system (see below) using the i686 DVD. The graphical install worked just fine, and after the system booted back up, the X server was working very well.
There is no boot text. On the other system with Fedora 11, I can see the boot text scroll by in the window and/or a progress bar at the bottom of the monitor during the boot sequence. On this system, the monitor says "No Input", and nothing appears until the login prompt for the X window. I am able to enter the BIOS configuration page and navigate through it without any issues. I can also edit the grub commands before Fedora loads without a problem.
If I boot in text mode, no login prompt appears. If I wait long enough, the monitor enters the power save mode since it is not receiving a signal. I am able to log in to the system with my user name and password, and then start the X server. Once the server starts, the monitor turns back ON and all is well.
From the X window, I use the CTL+ALT+F2 key to enter text mode. The monitor stops responding. If I press the ENTER key a couple of times, then press ALT+F7, I can briefly see the text window with a couple of login prompts before the X window starts responding again.
How can I get the text mode to work? Why is there no input to the monitor when booting?

I've used VLC for years, in both windows and linux. In windows streaming, you can select "NONE" for a Video Input, and just stream audio. This is not the case for Ubuntu's version.What can I do to stream just audio in VLC?
on my VLC, I set up a stream via: media -> streaming -> add an .avi and click on stream -> next -> select http, then clicked add -> selected theora/flac codec under OGG -> clicked next -> clicked stream.Here, I'm able to open another VLC player and connect to network[URL]I was just wondering if the IP address is what's needed to have them connect to me, or if it was something else? In addition, I disabled pglcmd and forwarded port 8080 for my IP.
Want to record an Internet radio broadcast. If I go to the relevant website and click on the streaming option, I get a box that offers me a choice of programs with which to open the stream. Right now it only has "Movie Player (default)" from which to choose.
If I click "other" then I have to tell the program where the VLC media player executable file is located.
I've finally found a way to actually stream .asx stuff using mplayer ( by extracting the actual link to the video from it ), and now I'd like to record it. In the asx, I've found a link to an .asf file, which I can stream using mplayer. How can I save this to view it locally?
I'm back with irritating questions. Ubuntu headless server, 10.04
I would like to set up my Linux box as a media streamer. I have Media Tomb set up so that the PS3, Xbox and other PCs can access my media over the LAN but I want to listen to my music on my iPhone when I am at work. What is the best way to do this? I have searched the interwebs as well as these forums with confusing results. I have found many options to stream while on my LAN but few to stream over the internet.
I rarely watch video on my iPhone so that is not a feature I need, just music.
While I am making a thread, is there anything that will stream .mov files to my PS3? I'd love to be able to watch my HD iPhone vids on the large TV in the living room.
I have two networked Ubuntu 10.40 machines and I am trying to stream audio from one machine to the other. I find on the surface everything works - I simply installed padevchooser and set the pulseaudio sink to the other machine. Now here comes the problem - whenever I do anything else involving network activity the sound crackles and hangs and it becomes hopeless. I've seen people elsewhere online complaining about crackling in relation to CPU usage but I can't find anyone talking about network usage.
In particular I often work on my office computers over VNC. I try to fire up VNC and it starts to load the remote desktop and the sound completely fails. I assume this is some kind of latency issue? Another good example is trying to watch a video on ..... - the sound plays at first but then as the video is being downloading in the background the stream starts to mess up. Listening to an mp3 in totem with no other network activity works fine.
I have a NAS set up (ubuntu server 10.04) which contains all my music. But when I play music from it, I can not see how long the song is and I can not skip to a specific time in the song. When I play video, all works well.
We are able to stream the video fine from while the flv file is located in the /var/videos/flv folder. We have a second volume that we formatted and mounted as /media/data/videos/flv. We have changed the path in the lighttpd config file to match this. When we play the video we are receiving:200, Stream not found, NetStream.Play.StreamNotFound, clip" "[Clip]"/media/data/videos/flv/test.flv".
I have been recording some demos from games like Quake 3, 4, and Doom 3. Now, I've been able to use Quake Video Maker in the past to take the Targa frames that the games export, and then combine those into a movie. However, it seems this time that QVM is spitting out some bad files. I try to watch the AVI file, but I just get this error message:
** Message: Error: Could not demultiplex stream. gstavidemux.c(3526): gst_avi_demux_stream_header_pull (): /GstPlayBin2lay/GstURIDecodeBin:uridecodebin0/GstDecodeBin2:decodebin20/GstAviDemux:avidemux0: pull_range flow reading header: unexpected
I figured that if I import it into Kino, then I should be able to edit just fine. Except, when I import it into Kino, the video just hangs on the first frame for the first half, and then plays the whole video at double the speed.Is there a better package that will take a lot of image files and export them into a movie file? Preferably one where I don't have to add each frame manually, as the demo I'm working with now has 5000+ frames.
Divx webplayer in Windows can download and save a divx video file while streaming, so the stream is recorded to the hdd or sth. How can I do this in Ubuntu? In addition to Ubuntu Videoplayer I have installed Gnome Mplayer and VLC Player. Will any of this do the trick? If yes, how exaytly would I proceed?
