Ubuntu :: Stream A Video Between Two 9.04 Stations Using GStreamer
Mar 23, 2010
I am trying to stream a video between two Ubuntu 9.04 stations using GStreamer. The following code is run on the emitting machine: Code: gst-launch videotestsrc ! queue ! ffenc_mjpeg ! udpsink port=5000 host=192.168.1.100 -v And the following on the receiving machine with IP 192.168.1.100: Code: gst-launch udpsrc port=5000 caps="image/jpeg, width=320, height=240, framerate=30/1" ! queue ! ffdec_mjpeg ! ximagesink sync=true -v Whatever the order I'm running them (emit first or receive first), I'm getting the following error once both are connected (I can see the Ethernet lights blinking):
ERROR*: element /GstPipelineipeline0/GstUDPSrc:udpsrc0*: internal error data flow. gstbasesrc.c(245: gst_base_src_loop (): /GstPipelineipeline/GstUDPSrc:udpsrc0: streaming task paused, reason not-negotiated (-4) Execution ended after 3191625000 ns.
I was trying to convert a flac audio to mp3 using soundconverter & its failing with the error:
GStreamer error: Gstreamer encountered a general stream error.
I should note that the flac is a rip of an actual Mono Vinyl disc. Am not exactly sure how that was done but I was interested in converting some those files to ogg & mp3. OGG conversion doesn't give any error.
Below is the result when launching soundconverter from the terminal & trying to convert the flac file(s) to mp3 (i just tried ogg to mp3 & the same error occurs):
Code: $ soundconverter SoundConverter 1.4.4 using Gstreamer version: 0.10.28, Python binding version: 0.10.18 using gio
I followed the instruction in the cheese help tutorial. The changes inGStreamer to produce the live stream in cheese "try changing from xvimagesinkto ximagesink or vice-versa.", only make both fail if changed to xvimagesink.As suggested here it goes the log...
Cheese 2.28.1 Probing devices with HAL... Found device 041e:4051, getting capabilities...
I've been trying to get soundconverter to work on ubuntu 10.10, I've checked I've got all the restricted packages installed, gone into synaptic and installed a bunch of gstreamer stuff, downloaded and compiled the latest version of soundconverter but whatever I do, the following happens:
1. open soundconverter
2. open file (wav)
3. set to convert to mp3 (default)
4. Click convert and instantly get the ever so helpful "general stream error" message!
Hello. I use dvd::rip 0.98.10 to create .wav sound files from DVDs and then play them in Totem Movie Player 2.28.2 (using GStreamer 0.10.25) mainly because I like the visualizations. It always used to work, but a recent batch will not play. I get: GStreamer encountered a general stream error. I probably used a more recent version of dvd::rip for the ones which don't play. Both MPlayer and VLC Media player plays them without a problem and older rips play fine in Totem too. The Audio/Video properties of a 'faulty' file (as shown in Nautilus) are greyed out for codec, channels etc., whereas a 'good' file shows Audio properties as Uncompressed 16-bit PCM audio etc., but running soxi on a good or bad file gives the same (good) results. I'd like to get this working, without doing anything to the .wavs preferably, so I guess I need to do something to Gstreamer, but I'm really not sure how to proceed. I'm using Linux Mint 8 64bit (rt kernel) and very nice it is too.
I had been having trouble with Banshee playing podcasts and it turned into a bigger problem. I use VLC so I hadn't noticed, but Totem (and Gstreamer as a whole) can't seem to play h.624 video. All I get is audio, even when I do a command like
(Well, now I get nothing, but more on that in a moment).
So I tried reinstalling Gstreamer, and I just tried updating to the Gstreamer Developer PPA. The only change that came from that is that now nothing happens instead of just hearing audio. I've attached the output.
I've gone into gstreamer-properties and tried every configuration. Each time I see the colored stripes and the snowy video corner, but it never seems to make a difference.
I have just installed my gstreamer on my ARM board. In that i used to play the video by using command "gst-launch filesrc location=/root/yuvraj.mp4 ! mfw_mp4demuxer ! queue max-size-time=0 ! mfw_vpudecoder ! mfw_v4lsink"it is working fine. but the screen is very small and it is in middle, How to make that full screen and the letters which is in terminal is also coming along with the video. how rectify that problem

I'm not sure this is the cause, but after I changed the properties of gstreamer, by following a fix on VLC freezing during video playback, I cannot control my desktop anymore.Luckily I can still switch windows thanks to docky. Unfortunately I cannot change the tab in the gstreamer-properties so I can reset my change. I changed the video from default to X11.How can I edit it manually from the command line?
Is there any way to check if a url points to a streaming video file or not programmatically. For example with this url : [URL].. I should get TRUE and with the url : [URL]..should return FALSE.
We have a Jetway JBC600C99-52W-B (Mini-top) with Xubuntu 10.10 and Logitech Z-205 USB Speakers but I have no sound. EDIT: fixed after installing gnome-volume-control and selecting my output device. Now i have a other problem, when i stream a video it plays sound for 1 second and when i click the play button it works fine for a while but after a few minutes the audio stops again. the video plays fine.
I installed/updated my flash media drivers because i had poor quality video in fullscreen. now fullscreen looks great on ..... and other streaming sites. the only problem is that everytime i attempt to stream from hulu, i get "sorry, we are unable to stream this video. please check your internet connection and try again."
There is an udp video stream accessible only on the local network, but I need to access it outside of the network. I have Linux machine (multiple actually) with root access.There is a small utility that makes the stream accessible on the local machine on port 1234.
./ping -h streamserver -p 1234
If I run it I can access the stream using vlc or mplayer.
mplayer udp://@:1234 vlc udp://@:1234
Now, I'm trying to create a port foward from my remote machine and access the port, but it is failing.
Is there a way that I can specify the height and with of the stream on the command line? From what I read, it looks like a #transcoder option would work, but I cant seem to figure it out. The above command is working, and I can view the stream, but it's extremely slow, and continuously freezes and buffers. My thinking is that if I can reduce the scale of the video.
I've looked around and found some programs avaialable in linux to stream video. I'm looking to stream to my PS3 but would like to be able to stream to my other computers. I would like the program to transcode too. I'm really looking for opinions on which one to use. I tried PS3 Media Server, it worked fine but it tended to be a resource hog. Also, I had trouble seeing it on other computers.
I'm running Debian Squeeze on an old AMD 3000+ but that will be updated here in the future. This is all internal personal network. Most computers will be on wired lan.Opinions? Ease of configuration, ease of use, stablilty?
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 running Windows 7 64bits and Ubuntu 10.04 64bits. My problem is that when I'm connected to my wireless router the connection crashes when I watch a live stream video such ..... or something else. It does not happen when I'm connected via cable to the router nor in Windows 7 when I'm connected via wifi.
I want to do a video streaming to a remote PC across the internet. The video bitrate is around 600 kbps. But my internet connection supports only a maximum upload bandwidth of 400 kbps.So I thought I will get one more connection and use the combined upload b/w of 800 kbps to stream the video. I hope there should be a way to split the stream across two interface and merge them together at the remote endpoint. All this has to be done at real time.
I'm vaguely remembering a video stream ripper that was open source and could be compiled for linux, mac, and windows. It's name ended with ++ and I can't remember anything else Basically, it was like StreamTransport but open source and multiprotocol capable. Can anybody help me find it again? I'd be open to alternatives too of course! My basic need is to rip anything being rendered by my video card.
I am working in Fedora FC11 with: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; nl; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20091105 Fedora/3.5.5-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5.5
In the following site I cannot see the video stream:[URL]...Choosing "TW1 Livestream" should gives a video stream, but it gives a black screen. Clicking on that black windows gives a text: Waiting for video.
A German text shows that the actual Version from Windows Media Players should be installed.In the past I could see video there, but after an upgrade it does not work any more.Looking in aboutlugins I see following Windows Media Player plugins:

I'm trying to us ushare to stream music and video to my 360. I have ushare setup and my 360 sees ushare but none of the files I'm trying to stream. When I run ushare -x it only sees the two folders I'm sharing and none of the files.
I wonder if anyone here has succeeded in streaming the video of a local webcam to the internet? Some research has turned up webcam_server Project Home Page but unfortunately it only supports v4l, not v4l2 and is no longer maintained. It seems to be possible with VLC server, but I'm a bit reluctant, because their repo is said to break other things. I still have 11.1 here.
I'm looking for software to capture a flash stream that uses rtmp protocol? the normal flash download plugins for firefox won't work and i'm not finding anything on the web for free options. from what i've read about it, it's a proprietary protocol with adobe and not many people now how it works. anyone here know anything that could save the files or grab the stream?
