Ubuntu :: Show File Names Instead Of Tags In Totem's Playlist?
Jul 20, 2011
Totem by default shows some sort of tags (if found) and not file names in the playlist. I don't like this, because I use Totem for video only and videos I get from the web usualy contains URLs and other such nonsense in the tags so I never know which file is which.
Can I somehow force Totem to always display file names?
Using a list of names (over 4000 of them) painstakingly gleaned from the source file years ago for a database file, I want to match the names against the source file so that they can be updated with the tags <forename></forename> in the original source file.
I placed the list of names in @forenames (only posted a few of them here).
Perl script is:
I am able to get the name bracketed by the tags to appear on the console screen but don't know how to apply the output to the source file. Perhaps I need to do a match on the words then some kind of edit to surround the matching words with the xml tags? I'm a rank novice doing this as a labour of love for a friend.
I have a lot of avis with annoying metadata that show in vlc. Since I cannot figure out how to configure vlc in a way that it won't show the tags, ffmpeg should strip the tags. This is supposed to do the trick:
I am using ubuntu 10.04 having totem 2.30.0 based on gstreamer 0.10.28I recently discovered an option in side bar bbc (apart from properties,.....,playlist)It downloaded 5-6MB of data for playlist then parsed them & displayed a list of interesting programmes of around 0.5 hour duration.
How can I download these mp3 files ? I could not find working radio at URL...
Cannot watch second, third, etc, streams from a server-side playlist (ie, .wsx on windows media service). I have tried mplayer, vlc, totem, and xine. Xine totally fails and the other three play only the first stream as described. You can verify it works in wine by using Windows Mediaplayer v10 (`winetricks wmp10` on a clean wine prefix).
The particular example I am dealing with is not an ideal test-case as they dynamically mangle the stream's URL to prevent leeching. You can test it by either visiting $URL (below) or from command line:
I don't know if this is the right place to post this. When I transfer my .ogg music files to my cowon s9, it doesn't recognise the tags so all I see is "unknown" for album, song and artist. I have tried retagging using easytag but it still shows up as unknown but when I converted an album to mp3, the tags automatically showed up. I know it would be easier just to convert all my songs to mp3 but the reason I chose the cowon was its ability to play .ogg files, my preferred choice of music file. The odd thing is I had a D2 until I lost it and that showed the tags ok.
restricted formats and i can play my videos with SMplayer, Xine, VLC etc but not Totem. Totem in 11.3 uses Gstreamer, and i believe i have all gstreamer plugins installed, good, bad, ugly, base etc. Also thumbnails won't show. Reason i want to use Totem? cuz it's integrated well with Gnome
THere's also this issue where everything i try to play wants to be played with banshee, how do i stop that? i tried going into Preferred applications and put it on custom, but i can't differentiate music and video, there's just a multimedia option. I would like to have music autplayed with Banshee, and Video autoplayed with SMplayer without having to go through the right click, play with option :/
Full screen flash is aproblem in 11.3 64 bit just as it ALWAYS is in most distros i tried *sigh* there's stuttering, and i can't scroll through the video ideally.
For the sake of saving spack i have a non multimedia related question. How do i handle nzbs? in windows i use sabnzb which is cross platform, but their is only a Fedora RPM meaning i'll have to compile it for opensuse which i have NO Idea how to do. Alternative NZB handlers i can't find in the regular repositories or webpin.
go to one of your partitions and just open some folders ,Now if you just check GO you are able to see the names of all the folders that you just have checked . All I need to know is , how can I disable go history to show the names ?
I would like to configure my desktop so that I have taskbars on the bottom and sides. No problem. However I also want to put folders on these taskbars where the NAME of the folder is shown with the folder icon and not just when the mouse hovers over it. In other words, I want to be able to determine what the folder is just by looking at it. I like the way the program icons clearly show what the application is on the taskbar launch bars but how to achieve this for folders also ?
I'm Running Lubuntu 10.04 on an old P3 PC Every time i want to log in i have to type the user-name and password. Is there any way Lubuntu can show the user-name to the login screen so that when i reach the login screen i see the usernames an i just click on the user-name enter the password and login ? s that achievable in Lubuntu 10.04 ?
I am trying to make a custom launcher for a playlist file to open in VLC player. In the command part I have the path to the file like this: /home/mike/Videos/newTv.m3u What am I doing wrong cause when I try and launch it I get this error: Details: Failed to execute child process "/home/mike/Videos/newTv.m3u" (Permission denied)
I found some code and tuts that tell me how to create a playlist, and I followed it to the letter but it doesnt work...I'm guessing it has somethin to do with my configuration settings with apache, otherwise here's the code:
Something command line that can parse and output an m3u file correctly. For example, not cdlabelgen.
All I want is a simple list of songs to print out to include with any audio cds I burn to use as a label in a slim case. No fancy labels with graphics and this or that. Brasero has a cover editor but the formatting is all screwed up and playing with text to get it to print correctly is a drag.
It would be cool if there were a script, too. Something that uses mp3cd. So a fella could fire-up his termianl-fu and run $ ./handiness.sh which would:
burn an audio disc from the playlist (which mp3cd does, of course)print out a nicely formatted list of the tracks sized correctly for a slim cd case cover.
My configuration-Ubuntu9.04. My VLC plays only the first audio file in the playlist among the files in the playlist,after that it automatically exit. When I press the next tab,then also it exit.I've reinstalled VLC,but also the problem exist. "VLC media player 0.9.4 Grishenko"
I've got a few large, unsorted folders where I dump mp3s. I manage it all through rhythmbox and I've decided to separate the wheat from the chaff by paring down stuff I don't want and throwing all the desirable stuff into a big (~1,800 file) playlist file saved to my desktop.My question to you is, is there a hack that'll let me cp all the file entries in this playlist from their various original directories and into one target directory? Playlist format is:
I have a playlist of 634 tracks that I export to a file. I then try to import that same file and only 627 tracks get imported into the created playlist. The 7 tracks that are missing are:
#EXTINF:125,Elvis Presley - Don't Be Cruel ../../../../media/LinuxHD/Music/Elvis Presley/Elv1s 30 #1 Hits/02. Don't Be Cruel.mp3 #EXTINF:189,Elvis Presley - Are You Lonesome Tonight? ../../../../media/LinuxHD/Music/Elvis Presley/Elv1s 30 #1 Hits/16. Are You Lonesome Tonight_.mp3
When using cssh, I define some cluster tags in my local .csshrc file. Other parameters seem to be picked up by cssh, but the tags are not.I have no /etc/clusters or /etc/csshrc files. I create a fresh, default .csshrc file and append a line like:myhost = frodoWhen executing "cssh myhost", I get: Can't call method "name" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/cssh line 988This is the same message I get if I make up some destination, like: "cssh doesnotexist". So it looks like rather than picking up the tag "myhost" from .csshrc, and translating the command to "cssh frodo", it does a dns lookup on myhost.I've tried making a /etc/csshrc file like this (but without the equal sign), but that doesn't work either. This is all on Ubuntu 9.10 with cssh version 273.
Over the years of working with both images (many) and other files (many more) it seems that it is easier to organize images. There are a variety of image software (digikam, gthumb, the new "shotwell") etc. Its easy to organize them with multiple references - date, multiple categories etc. This in fact makes it easy & efficient in our multi disciplinary world to access the same image for multiple needs.
However the same is not true for other files (od formats, pdfs etc etc) the only way we seem to be able to sort them is by what folders we make. Of course we can use meta search engines to find it by other keyword / dates etc. But it is not the same as being able to give multiple tags to a file and later being able to retrieve by that particular tag.So am wondering if such a file tagging / sorting and accessing "thingy" already exists and if so what is it. Or it is available and i don't know where to look.
In a random folder, if i right click on a random file for example a pdf file, i can see in the shortcut menu that appears the choice "tags". It is clear how i can create a new tag or associate an existing tag to a specific file.
My question is, how can i search for files that have a specific tag? For example if i have two files that i already gave them the tag "test", can i use some program and find that two files by using the tag "test"?
I have some music files (.mp3 and .flac) which have unmodifiable tags: After I change the tags, they revert to their original values automatically. It's not related to access permissions (using Linux) as in a same directory, with the same permissions, some files have modifiable tags and other not. Is there such a thing as "protected" or "unmodifiable" tags? Are there solutions to force modification ?
I just began using amarok as a media player and I have a bunch of untagged files which show up in the local collection as Untitled -> Untitled, but since there are multiple files I can't see what they are, and I can't play them. If I go to edit it, it edits all the untitled files to whatever I set it to, because there's a bunch of untitled files. Is there a way for me to add tags to them in amarok one at a time?
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11 and a few days later my ecryptfs filesystem began misbehaving in a weird way. In my home directory, many subdirectory names are duplicated verbatim. Here's an ls -F excerpt:
I can no longer access files in those directories (if I ls the directory, it appears empty; I can cd to it, but there's nothing inside). Not all of the directories are duplicated/damaged like this, but most are. A few non-directory files are also duplicated in this fashion, so for example:
I have a desktop hooked up to a router and plugged into my TV. I like to run Totem and have videos running full screen on my TV. I would like to control that Totem using my laptop (connected to the same router over wifi). How would I go about doing that? I connected to my desktop using SSH and tried to send signals to Totem, but nothing worked. I tried using VNC, and that was ineffective as well.
I am looking for an application that will read the file names in a folder and generate a comma delimited file. I want then to import the comma delimited file contests to a spread sheet such as open office.I hava a number of PDF files generated from a scanner, each file with its own scaner generated file name. I want to put these into a data base so I can add the title and other reference information to provide a data base.
In case that NFS client of fedora is set to cache nfs file handle, where is the cache stored such as /var/lib/nfs?If it's stored in memory instead of directory tree, what command can I know the combination of file names and file handles with?OS in my test environment: Fedora Core 6
