Fedora X86/64bit :: 14 Cannot Play More Than 1 Multicast Stream

Aug 17, 2011

I have a project to run simultaneously up to 8 video streams, from a pool of about 100 multicast cameras, and display them on 4 monitors. The PC I am using is a brand-new dual CPU 4-core Intel Xeon E5620 2.40GHz, Intel S5520SCR motherboard, 8GB memory and nvidia Quadro NVS 450 graphics. It's running Fedora 14 64-bit and outputs on 2x2 LCD monitors using Xinerama. So far, so good.

Playing a single video stream from any camera works fine. The problem is that, when I open a 2nd media player window with the purpose of playing other camera, all those two video windows play a single stream. It doesn't matter which camera stream I opened first, as soon as I open a 2nd stream, both windows show the same stream (either the first, or the second, at what seems to be a random choice). Further, a 3rd or a 4th video window will also play the same stream. In other words, one stream sort of "contaminates" all the other streaming windows to play that particular stream only. The problem remains the same even when the following changes are applied:

- graphics driver: nvidia or nouveau;
- video player: vlc or mplayer;
- number of active monitors: 4, 2 or 1.

I am really puzzled because, on the same computer, Windows XP SP3 32-bit runs beautiful. I can smoothly play up to 12 video streams and some computer applications, simultaneously. I cannot believe that an obsolete OS such as Windows XP can outperform by a long shot Fedora 14 64-bit in video streaming projects. Just doesn't make sense.

Note: I have also tested Windows 7 64-bit, it also runs multiple video streams in parallel without any problems, but Win 7 has issues that XP is free of (such as graphics output glitching every few seconds).

Fedora X86/64bit :: Audio Cd Will Not Play?

Jan 7, 2010

I went to the record store a couple of days ago and bought some CDs. I was able to pop in the first one and rip it no problem. Then, I put in a different CD and I have been greeted with all sorts of nothing. I put the original CD back in and I get nothing. Some example error messages....

When I open Sound Juicer, I am told: "Sound Juicer could not read the track listing on this CD. Reason: Cannot access CD: The specified location is not mounted"

When I open Kaffeine: "Cannot find input plugin for MRL [cdda:/]"

When I try to view the disc in dolphin:"Device does not have read permissions for this account. Check the read permissions on the device."

Slackware :: KDE4 Can Only Play One Audio Stream

Apr 2, 2010

Every KDE4 application seems to take over the sound card. If I'm playing a song in Amarok and launch Dragon Player, the song stops. If I'm playing a song in an xterm using "mplayer -ao alsa" and then launch Dragon Player, the song stops. Most annoying of all, if I'm playing music in _anything_ and then a notification sounds in Kopete, the music stops.However, if I launch two xterms and play two different MP3s by running "mplayer -ao alsa" in each one, both songs play. So software mixing is working with my sound card.

This made me wonder if KDE is outputting music through OSS instead of ALSA. Well, KDE's audio backend is set to xine, and xine is outputting through ALSA. Under System Settings->Multimedia->Audio Ouput, the only devices I see.

Software :: Play Quicktime Stream - Can't Find Plug-in

May 19, 2010

I want to play a Quicktime stream and can't figure it out. When I try to play it either in Firefox or Movie Player, it says I need a text/html decoder plugin, but doesn't find one from the autosearch. Downloaded Ubuntu Restricted Extras from the Software Center, but no luck (don't know if I'm supposed to "do" something after that). MPlayer doesn't work on my computer, and I've also downloaded Avidemux, thinking maybe I'd get the right codec or plugin, but again, no luck. I am on Ubuntu 10.04 on an Eee PC, if it makes a diff.

Software :: Totem Won't Play Ripped .wavs - GStreamer Encountered A General Stream Error

Apr 20, 2010

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.

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Receive Multicast Data

Jun 13, 2010

I have just set up an FC 13 box for a small network application. At the core, the application is supposed to receive some data over a multicast on my local network. However, for some reason, I am not being able to receive any multicast data on this machine. Other machines, on the same network (connected on the same layer 2 switch) are receiving the multicast just fine. I have tried the following things:

1. ensure that I am joining the multicast on the correct interface: the machine has only one ethernet card. Also, after starting my application, I use netstat -g to check for group membership. The multicast subscription shows up fine.

2. ensure there is no error in the program: the program works fine on my person linux machine

3. ensure that the multicast is actually available: it is available on all other local machines. I also wrote my own small broadcaster. data from this broadcaster (running on the same box) is available to other machines but not to my own listener program.

4. no firewall/filtering settings on the layer2 switch

5. TTL setting on the broadcast: have tried changing it from 1 through 5 with no effect. Note that even if the broadcast is coming from the same machine, my machine does not pick it up while other machines on the network do so.

I suspect this has to do with some settings on the network card itself. Below is the output of /sbin/ifconfig on the card:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:A1:67:BBA
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::208:a1ff:fe67:bbca/64 Scope:Link

Ubuntu :: Can't Play Audio CD - Lucid 10.04 64bit

May 6, 2011

I preface this by saying that all other forms of CDs and DVDs work perfectly in this machine - the problem relates exclusively to Audio CDs, either burnt or bought.

When I put and Audio CD in the drive, the mounting process starts, takes longer than usual, and during this process, the desktop icons flash off then back on again, then the CD mounts and I get an icon on the desktop.

If I right-click and select Open, the desktop icons flash off and on again, and nothing else happens.

If I right-click and select Open with Rhythmbox, the same thing happens - desktop icons flash off and on, and nothing else happens. Rhthymbox is not listed in the active processes either.

If I open Movie Player, and click on Movie in the menu, the Play disc 'Audio disc' option is greyed out.

If Rhythmbox is running, and I insert an Audio CD in the drive, Rhythmbox crashes and won't start again until I remove the Audio CD, then all is well again.

When I select Eject to remove the Audio CD, the desktop icons flash off and on again, then the CD ejects.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Install Cluster On Servers - Validate A Multicast Address Before Using It?

May 19, 2011

I am trying to install a Red Hat cluster on my servers. In order to configure an heart bit between the servers I must give a valid multicast address. I wanted to know if there is a way to validate a multicast address before using it. For example if it is already in use i don't want to use it.

I read a little about it and there is a Perl module called IO::Socket::Multicast: [URL] There is a tool called mcasttrest.pl: [URL] Oracle use it to test multicast. But I am not sure what will do the trick in Red Hat cluster.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Play A 32bit Game On F14-64 - Error "cannot Open Shared Object File: No Such File Or Directory"

Dec 19, 2010

You may know the Humble Indie Pack 2, which is a set of crossplatform indie video games. There's one game in the bundle that doesn't offer a 64bit build and therefore it fails to load. It's called Braid and that's what you get when you try to run it: $ ./braid ./braid: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Of course the 64bit libs for OpenGL and the propitiatory nvidia drivers are installed, but the game asks for the 32bit ones, at least to my understanding. I do know that why can install 32bit libraries on a 64 bit linux system (we do that for the sake of crappy Adobe Flash), but I don't know where to find these libs (searching the repo with keywords like .i586 or ia32 led me nowhere).

Fedora X86/64bit :: Work Correctly With Firefox 3.5 And F11 64bit?

Reboot into Windows 7 and IE8: the same site is fast, smooth, the buttons work and the product details appear correctly in the centre of the screen.

I've tried disabling all adblock /pop up block options, ensured all javascript options are enabled and no change. Could this be a problem with the 64 bit flash player (installed from leigh's sticky thread) or a problem with OpenJDK?

I assume my problem is a lack of required packages, though I searched the repositories using YUM extender for the packages listed here: url.html and can't see them either as installed or available.
