Hi All,

If you miss SHOUTCast and Last.fm radio, you might want to try Nightingale. Instructions and pet to run it from /mnt/home found here:

mikeslr, Nightingale ran for me but "Failed to load Shoutcast streams" in both 3HD and LupuPlus. There must be something we are overlooking.

People can of course go directly to shoutcast.com, but that is just one feature of Nightingale.

Flashvideoreplacer

Earthray found this. It replaces flashplayer with gnome-mplayer (or other player at your choice). Anyone having trouble with youtube videos might want to try it. It is working for me.

Plus, many youtube videos will now automatically play with html5 if flashplayer is not installed. Flashvideoreplacer has an option to prefer html5.

Did you run the Grub4Dos bootloader config?

No, I didn't try that. Is it necessary to use Grub or Grub4Dos for a usb boot? I thought that was only for HDD install?

Each of the flash installers has its own issues. After struggling with the installers for many months, I discovered that Grub4Dos worked, for me, all the time (with 5.2.x).

Thanks ilan, I think I will have to start using Grub4Dos as several people have now suggested it.

However, I am concerned that many newcomers may still try to use the universal installers and get into the same problems I did - then walk away from Puppy. maybe all we need is a good, easy tutorial that shows people like me how to use Grub4Dos just for one specific function - how to make a bootable usb stick containing a recent version of Puppy, so that we can leave our Windows HDD installation untouched. That way we can boot from HDD if we need windows, or put the usb stick in if we want to use Puppy.

Would you have time to list the steps you would use to create such a usb stick? (eg: which step comes first - Gparted, or syslinux, or fdisk or cfdisk or Grub4Dos???). It seems easy for people who have worked on such problems for weeks and months and developed their own methods, but not so clear for newcomers who are trying to follow basic steps.

I would like to find a foolproof method that works with a typical brand new FAT32 stick straight off the shop shelf.

Many thanks if you have time to list your method.

Good point, greengeek.
I think the univarsal installer is the root who confuses newcommers.
The 431JP returns 2012 has Frugalinstaller for this reason.
The bootflash is a bit better than the univarsal installer.

The frugalinstaller is simple and easy. The bootflash is more and the univarsal installer is the most sophisticated and confusing.
Therefore, the 431JP2012 has 3 installers... Sad

Yes, now I can understand why you made the FrugalInstaller (although I have not tried it yet). We need something similar that will be able to run on new puppies: - "Puppy5xx USBInstaller".

I am still investigating my usb boot problems - I really would like to learn exactly why my problems are occurring. When I know enough I will try to write a tutorial. I wish I could write an installer...but no chance of that. Still so much to learn.

Hi Playdaz,

I had the same result as you did with Three-Headed-Dog and LupuPlus. So I've noted that on its thread.
It's a nice app if it works.('Laughing'). When it works, it provides a complete music manager. But if SHOUTcast fails then it provides nothing not already available using pmusic.

Has anyone else noticed a huge hit on their free space using flashreplacer?
Does anyone have a fix, as while watching a few youtubes, my browser froze locking the PC necessitating a forced poweroff, as I couldn't get any access to regain control

I've added another 1Gb to my savefile, which is now a huge [I think] 4.7Gb with only 1.1Gb free!
btw I'm using Slacko, with Aurora 7.01, in case it makes any difference, and it crashes often with latest Flashplayer

hi aitch

you may want to move the gnome-mplayer cache /root/.cache/.gnome-mplayer. (it's hidden so press the eye) onto your harddrive, then symlink it back.
alternatively, i think that you can set the cache size in the gnome-mplayer options.

Well, to answer the question.
When is the Gecko-mplayer plugin ever used?
Using Firefox 12 browser, this video played using the Gecko-mplayer plugin.
(It actually causes Gnome-Mplayer to play the video)

In Firefox preferences->Applications
mpeg files is set to use mplayerplug-in is now Gecko-mediaplayer.
Basically what this does is Gecko-Mplayer plugin makes the video stream to the Gnome Mplayer.

If I set mpeg files to use Gnome Mplayer the video would download completely and then play. No streaming.
