Ubuntu Multimedia :: Online Video Streaming Freezes On Full Screen

Nov 25, 2010

I am using ubuntu 10.10 on Dell Inspiron 1525 dual boot with vista. My concern is streaming online videos through websites such as BBC iplayer, sky news, ....., NDTV news channel, etc. Videos are streaming perfectly fine as long as they are not running on full screen but if I try to run them on full screen video freezes (after a few minutes, say 5). Interestingly, sound does not stop. I can still hear the latest news updates but the video does not correspond. Same videos are running fine whether full screen or not in vista.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Full-Screen Video Streaming Lock-up

Oct 15, 2010

When I play a video web stream full-screen, the image randomly freezes. I can still move the mouse and hear the audio, but I can't click on anything, and I can't get out of full-screen. No keyboard commands that I know work, and so I end up having to hold down the power button to kill the machine.

This didn't happen in Ubuntu, so I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue. And I changed the power management settings to do nothing, but it still happens. So, I don't know what the deal is. Should I try a different flash player (I have the adobe player as default)?

Still cannot watch a flash video in full screen for more than 1 minute before it freezes/hangs. Ridiculous that this bug has been around for YEARS and no one took the time to fix it for new versions.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lines In Full Screen Video Playback?

May 2, 2011

I really don't know where I should ask this question. When I'm watching a video in full screen (ex, avi or h264 file) I am seeing random horizontal bars where there is action on the video like where a head is turning.When the motion is slow I am less likely to see these lines. Faster the motion, lots of lines or shaky motion. I was using my onboard Geforce 6150 GPU but thought it was because it was underpowered. I then bought a GT220 thinking that it was the problem. It is still but less frequent. Using the built in player, VLC... I don't know where to look, what to search for...There is my setup:

AMD Athlon II x2 255
4GB DDR3
nvidia GT220 512mb

[code]....

Ubuntu :: Can't Go Full Screen On Some Streaming Videos

Jan 24, 2010

I've started to have problems getting some streaming videos to either go full screen or go full screen properly.

On [url] when I want to watch a South Park episode full screen it pops up a little box that says "Error Full Screen Not Allowed" and if I hover my mouse over the video connection icon is says

"current video stream 750 kbps* Max video stream 800kbps Avalible in HDGo to Fullscreen *limited by this computer"

The current avaible bandwith speed averages 2500kbps and I have a 7000kbps connection with Speedboost.

When I use Windows XP I can go to full screen with South Park Videos, only in Ubuntu can I not go full screen.

With Hulu it will go into full screen but not always the porpper way. Sometimes it will go full screen but other times it will go full screen but I have to minimize the browser window and then maximize it again and the video will play full screen but apear to be playing on the desktop as wallpaper. I don't get this problem in XP.

This seems to have just started after the last time I did a recomended automatic secuirity update with updae maager. My Video Card is a ATI Radeon 9000 at 1280x1024 true color.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Annoying Noise When Video Is Played On Full Screen Mode

Feb 20, 2011

recently i installed ubuntu (gnome) 10.10. i'm lovin it but only thing is bugging me is this annoying noise whenever i try to see a video on web or using vlc. i m using dell inspiron 6400. IT has VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility X1400 My glxinfo outcome is :

HTML Code:

name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI

[code]...

now my main problem is whenever i change my visual settings from none to extra , i start getting noise on my usb headphone or even on my speakers especially if i play a video on full screen mode it become worse .. it starts constantly makeing buzzing noise. sometimes even when i minimize or maximize or scroll up down a window...

if i put the visual effects in normal mode i still get the noise on video playing full-screen mood but this is time bit low and on none mode i get the noise too but very low... so i m assuming there must be some problem with my vga card which is causing this chaos. unfortunately there is no driver for my graphics card dat ati supports on ubuntu, so i used gallium 3d project using this ppa https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/radeon .. graphics works fine now but this nosie is killing me ..

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Obnoxious Bar In Smplayer - Full Screen Isn't Full Screen And There Are Black Edges On Both Sides Of The Screen

Jan 25, 2011

This obnoxious bar has just appeared in Smplayer at the top of the screen. It stays there even when I go full screen. Now full screen isn't full screen and there are black edges on both sides of the screen. I have not be able to figure out how to hide it. I do not need or want this onscreen display. How can I configure Smplayer to make this go away? How can I get my 16:9 full screen aspect ratio back? I have done nothing to mplayer or smplayer as far as editing any or changing any configuration files. I tried several videos and it displays on all of them. It was not there last time I used Smplayer.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Streaming Online Radio Server?

Dec 9, 2009

tried to do a search for this but it's a bit of a tricky thing to search for. Basically what I'm after is a solution for my work so I can stream a online radio station down to 1 server, and then have the clients stream the audio from that. Anyone know if that's possible?

so:
Online Radio >> Server >> Clients

Any linux or winblows solution would be fine, I'm just trying to look for a solution that would cut down on the internet bandwidth usage, but still allow uses to listen to online radio.

Debian Multimedia :: Streaming .avi Online | Multimedia Server

Apr 13, 2010

I want to stream .avi *divx/xvid* (because of the nice compression and quality) online and have all streams accessible through a web based library type thing. Something like Jinzora ( http://en.jinzora.com/ ) is what I am looking for, but it's buggy. I would even be satisfied with a web based library of streams that you click and open with an external program. I have searched a lot for this and the only thing I found that can do this how I want (if it worked right) was jinzora. I don't want to convert to mpeg4 or flv because of size and quality issues.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Playback Freezes Screen Randomly While Sound & Keyboard Works

Feb 12, 2010

i'm using ubuntu since 8.04, and the current (9.10) is a fresh install on new hdd.the problem was the same each version (8.04, 8.10, 9.04, 9.10) - while i'm playing the video (no matter if i use mplayer [smplayer], gstreamer [totem] or adobe flash plugin [videos]) the playback freezes randomly for about 5-10 sec. during the freeze the movie is still played, i can hear the sound is ok. if i press [space] in smplayer it pauses the playback, so the responses for keyboard actions are ok. not for the mouse clicks however. i can still move the cursor around the screen but it seems the system is not aware of it (clicking on the "pause" button doesnt pause the movie). except the cursor, nothing changes on the screen (if the im [pidgin] window was blinking because of new message, it freezes etc etc).

is there any kind of log i could look into just to try figuring out the problem?it is impossible to watch any movie on my pc (currently i don't have tv)i installed windows on external hdd once and it played videos fine so i suppose it's not hardware problem .

OpenSUSE :: Diabling Screen Saver While Streaming Video

Jun 29, 2011

I'm wondering if there is a method for leaving the screen saver set to appear after, say 4 minutes, but to NOT have the screen saver activate during a streamed video. For example, any time I wish to stream a video through Firefox, I must open screen saver settings and deactivate. I was wondering if there is some way to maybe lower the priority for the screen saver below Firefox or Flash player, etc. Or if there is another work-around that is simpler than monkeying with the settings every time.

I haven't noticed this problem when using media players to mount local files, such as vlc. I'm running 64-bit KDE 4.6.4 Tumbleweed (from 11.4), FIrefox 4.0.1, Linux 2.6.39.1-33-desktop x86_64. Last 'zypper dup' was done yesterday, 6/28. Sorry if I forgot any important info.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Video (MP4) To PS3 And/or Xbox 360

I would like to stream my HD Movie collection over a wireless network to my PS3 and/or Xbox 360.

All my movie files are MP4s and I wondering if it is possible to do this. If possible, I'd like to use the VLC player to do this but its not too important. I really really really do not want to sacrifice any video or sound quality while streaming.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IP Camera Video Streaming

Apr 6, 2010

My local priest has asked me if I can use my computer skills to stream church services live for people who can't make it to church.I said, sure thing! I thought it would be simple, but the deeper I look into it, the more lost I have become!Here's the tech requirements:

- A camera with good optical zoom and focused on the altar (the camera will be stationed at an unobtrusive point at the back of the church on the choir balcony)
- Everything must be wireless (power is available on choir balcony to power the camera).
- Sound should be synchronised perfectly with the video (have access to the church PA system - located behind altar)
- the internet connection should be able to upload the stream to a virtual server (i.e. with root access) that's accessible to the web with ease. What upload speed would I need? Would 256k be enough? HD video is not required - ..... quality would be great. We can upgrade to HD at a later point in time!
- What bandwidth requirement would my server need if say 1000 users were connected? Seeing as they would most likely be locals, would just one stream be sent to the local exchange and that exchange would send out the stream to the 1,000 users, or would each user have to have a dedicated connection to the server?
- Say I bought a camcorder with HDMI output, what kind of processing power would I need to convert this to compressed video? (I've got an old Pentium 4 and an AMD64 2.0GHz lying idle in my bedroom and it would be great to make use of 'em instead of chucking 'em on the skip)
- I'd like all this to be done so that HTML5 browsers can access the video, resorting to flash if necessary
- I'd also like to be able to power down all the hardware with ease: i.e. set a timer. I'm sure ubuntu can do this with ease? What about configuring the camera to zoom in every time it is powered on? Can linux control the zoom on a camcorder?
- Am I totally nuts?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Video Over The Internet?

Jun 16, 2010

I've got a NAS mounted on a linux machine, and here at another location, I have my Ubuntu laptop. I'm able to remotely, securely mount the directory my NAS is mounted on in the linux machine onto my laptop via sshfs, giving me remote access to my NAS via my laptop.The problem I'm having is.. even though I have a high downstream at the laptop end, and a hefty 1mb upstream at my home, I still can't quite stream the movies I have stored on it. I can stream them, but there is a lot of stuttering.I've tried messing around w/ various options w/ mplayer, but I can only improve it slightly at best. Am I missing something? Is it a size issue that it comes down to? The files are roughly 700mb for a 1 1/2 - 2 hr avi file.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Video Is Choppy

Aug 8, 2010

When I play streaming video on hulu or other sites it is choppy. However, the sound is fine. Video files play fine when I download them.I experience this problem in both Firefox and Chrome. I have a 10MB connection on other Linux desktops the streaming video is fine.I imagine it is a flash issue, but I have the latest flash v10.1.The other solution would be a video downloader for streaming video. I have not found one that works on Linux.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Video Is No Good

Nov 1, 2010

I am elevating this thread up a level from [url] . Ubuntu 9.10 no longer streams without the screen pausing and going black every 2 minutes! Our product was just going into production and now we need to hopefully find a version of Ubuntu that streams video! We couldn't go with Unbuntu 10.04 because the video streaming was 30% slower than 9.10.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Log Into CNN Live Streaming Video / Fix It?

Aug 3, 2011

I'm not sure this is, strictly speaking, an Ubuntu problem (although it may be), but people around here seem to be more knowledgeable than they are anywhere else, so it's worth a try.

CNN recently started offering its news station on live streaming video for those who get CNN from a participating cable provider. For better or worse, I get CNN on Comcast, so no problem there.

Except for lagging video because lack of processing speed, it all works fine on my netbook, on which I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed.

But on my desktop, where I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, no such luck. The problem is the same regardless of whether I'm using Opera, Firefox or Chrome.

I can go to http://cnn.com/video and get the standard video streams (not CNN live) just fine. When I click on the "Live" button and then the "Unlock Live TV" button, I get, as expected, the "Sign in to watch live TV" dialogue box. So I click on Comcast, log in correctly, and am returned to the main screen. The page appears to be loading correctly, and then I get the "Sign in to watch live TV" dialogue box again. No matter how many times I try, that's what I keep on getting.

If this didn't work on my netbook, I'd just assume that for some reason the setup is Linux-unfriendly, but now I'm determined to get this working.

I've checked my plugin settings on my browsers and nothing seems amiss. I've tried deleting all cookies, persistent storage, Flash cookies and all such things, but to no avail. Even though I had the most recent version, I even uninstalled and reinstalled Flash, but that didn't change anything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Anything That Can Be Done To Increase Video Streaming Performance?

Jan 19, 2010

Is there anything that can be done to increase video streaming performance?The general impression I got is that it's mainly an adobe problem and not much can be done, though currently streaming is nearly unwatchable. When I switch from full screen to normal size many of the players freeze, ..... HD is unwatchable etc.
