Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stream HDMI Input To Window?

Mar 27, 2011

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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Convert A Digital Sound Stream To Analogue Before It Is Sent To The Hdmi Out?

Jan 13, 2011

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.

Software :: Make ALSA Read The Digital Stream From HDMI Cable?

May 22, 2011

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.

aplay -l:
[alex@alex01 ~]$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 1: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC888 Analog [ALC888 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1


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?

Hardware :: HDMI Input Changes To YPbPr When Rebooting From Windows

Apr 11, 2010

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.

Hardware :: Converting HDMI Computer Output To VGA Monitor Input?

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

Ubuntu :: Stream A Window From X As Opposed To Forwarding It Over SSH?

Jan 15, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change Stereo Mic Input To Mono Input?

Nov 4, 2010

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:
arecord -r 96000 -D pulse -c 1 -vv -V mono /dev/null
it works correctly and outputs on both channels. But if I do
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?

Fedora :: No Monitor Input During Boot, Unable To Enter Text Mode From X Window

Nov 24, 2009

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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stream To IOS Device Over Internet?

Apr 28, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stream Audio From One Machine To The Other

Sep 16, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Error: Could Not Demultiplex Stream

Mar 13, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio Over HDMI

May 12, 2011

I have been trying for a while now to get the audio over HDMI working from my PNY G210 graphics card and mythtv but with no luck.

I have followed this guide [URL]

prior to following this I only had my motherboards on board audio showing up but I am now at the stage that I can see the HDMI audio and select it and un mute it but still cannot get any sound out of it.

As a side effect after following the steps from the link above, now every time I boot the computer up my on board audio is muted so I need to un mute it from sound preferences.

This is my audio config as it stands:
scott@MythtvFrontend:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: AD198x Analog [AD198x Analog]

The mother board is a an ASUS MN32-SLI deluxe and I have 2 graphics cards in it, a 9600GT to run the 2 monitors connected and a G210 which I would like to use to connect to my TV using the HDMI output. At the moment I am using the VGA output from the G210 to the TV and a separate audio out from the computer which was working fine but the audio is now always muted on startup.

I don't think it is an issue with my mythtv settings as I cannot get any audio over the HDMI using speaker-test (on board analogue audio works ok).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get Sound Through HDMI

I have no problem getting video over hdmi using the latest proprietary nvidia drivers however I cannot get sound through the HDMI cable.

I have read around without being able to find a solution.

Running "aplay -l" shows only my intel sound card and also there is no hdmi sound interface in the sound preferences (Only the normal output interface).

I am using the latest proprietary nvidia drivers (Believe it to be 1.95) and the graphics card is a Quadro FX 570.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No HDMI Audion In 11.04?

Aug 21, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04 I noticed that HDMI audio stopped working. When I connect the HDMI cable to the TV the image is transfered but there is not sound.I tried several things, starting with checking the sound preferences. I have there two devices, one for internal audio and another for HDMI. When I select the HDMI output I have no sound. I tried to run gnome-alsamixer and it shows two devices as well, but for the HDMI it gives me no parameter at all there.Device configuration seems ok and aplay -l gives me the follwoing info:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC269 Analog [ALC269 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I also tried some troubleshooting pages like this but couldn't solve the problem (in fact when trying one of the suggestions of this page it messed up the whole sound configuration of my laptop and had to reinstall alsa driver modules as explained here to come back to the previous state with only the HDMI problem).What makes me really upset is that with the previous Ubuntu version (10.10) HDMI audio worked just fine then after upgrading to 11.04 it stopped working.

Another interesting thing about this problem is that when I play a video from a web page, for example from ....., and try to use HDMI audio, the video runs much faster than normal with no sound. If I switch to internal audio, while still sending the video over HDMI, it works fine with the audio playing in the laptop and the video in my TV.

ALSA reports that version 1.0.23 is installed, although I thought 11.04 came with version 1.0.24?
