good work again. Its not something I personally care about, but it may be more visually appealing to show the dirname separately from the files. It could also be useful for sorting the songs by title when they are in different directories (I think gtkdialog4 can do this internally now). or for scrunching overly long directory paths

in gtkdialog form that would be something like
Directory | Audio File
`dirname $x` | `basename $x`
...

where x is a full path to an audio file

Thanks techno, I will try to do something like this at some point, just making sure the changes are all fixed and double checked at the moment.. I loaded up pmusic 2.8.x see have a l look what I might be able to do.. Decided to leave it as is for now, until I make it all work nice as poss.. At the moment, when the above audio playlist gui is visible, the osc controls for new videos loaded wont show up.. i updated help for now to reflect this.. also, only 1 audio playlist is ever used, so you cant run two audio files/playlists at the same time (not including downloads,converting,etc) - kinda make sense to me!..

Dear sc0ttman,

In order to get the new version to run in Lucid (and bash version 3.2.29(2)), I had to change:

Code:
&>>


to

Code:
& >>


Now works fine.

With thanks and kind regards,

Thanks! I'll try it out and upload a fixed 2.6.7 in a bit..

EDIT: Nope, can't just replace it... I remember now - on my system (bash4) that change will force all vlc commands to launch in the background, breaking all playback control (stop, next, prev, etc wont work) .. The new audio playlist for example will just load up mp3s on top of each other.. and none can be stopped using vlc-gtk...

vovchik, Can you confirm that after your changes, you can click on an audio file (in the new audio playlist GUI) and it'll kill playing the last one, and ONLY THEN start playing the new file.. ?

EDIT2: If I change &>> to just >>, then everything works, except logging to the vlc-gtk logfile!

Dear sc0ttman,

I can't get anything to play via that gui Sad Will experiment further to see what is happening. Obviously, my solution was not optimal Sad

Try &> instead of &>> ... you should have *most* of the logfile created fine, and it should otherwise work as expected (if it works)..

Hi scOttman

I am trying your new 2.6.6 version in puppy 528. Can get video files to play but thats all. Is the &>> mentioned above in /usr/bin/vlc_gtk? If so can you give me a line number in geany and I'll make the change you recommend and see if it works here.

Regards,

Ken.

Just open /usr/bin/vlc-gtk in geany, hit Ctrl+H, replace &>> with ... err.. well.... not sure yet.. I'm currently trying to resolve this: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84572 ...

Although actually, if video is playing fine for you (with on screen controls gui?), then changing &>> might not make a difference to audio playback.. may be another damn bug... im gonna have to boot up lucid or slacko or whatever and see...

------------------------------------------------
EDIT: I've booted Lucid 528 to test this...

I didn't change &>> , I just left it alone... I'm guessing the problems comes from using different VLC versions/builds than myself..

VLC-GTK 2.6.6 works more or less fine with VLC_Plus_Extras-1.1.5-i386.pet in Lucid... But this is almost pointless, as this package is only 5.6mb and has full interface and stuff - so no need for VLC-GTK..


After a few changes, I had vlc-gtk working with VLC from the Lucid repo, although on first install, VLC would not accept any shortkeys (Ctrl-Q, etc) , in either VLC-GTK or its proper Qt interface... I also tested another VLC from the repo, and had some dep issues, but after that.. more or less a success like the other..

... but in short, VLC is weird - it behaves a little different with each version/compile... some will play files from a dir in order, others wont, etc... vlc-gtk cant accommodate every quirk.. The best thing is to compile a vlc_nogui yourself..

But I will release another version soon, which I have had working on Lucid, with a link to the VLC package it works with..

PostPosted: Tue 26 Feb 2013, 09:02    Post subject: VLC-GTK 2.6.7  

VLC-GTK updated to 2.6.7

Major bugfix release. See main post for download.

All users should definitely go for 2.6.7.

Hopefully I won't *need* to update/fix anything for a while..

This has been tested on Lucid 528 and Wary 5141.. There are no decent vlc_nogui packages for these pups, so I had to test most features using VLC_Plus_Extras-1.1.5-i386.pet.. Though I also tested *some* stuff with other versions.. In short, as long as you have a working VLC installed, VLC-GTK *should* now work for you ...

Changelog, 26 Feb 2013:

- fixed: fixed file logging (the &>> redirection errors in bash3)
- fixed: find the installed gtkdialog
- fixed: non-root users create playlist file
- fixed: re-added changes from 2.6.3, better support for low resolutions
- fixed: OSC, filter out all non audio files in audio playlist creation
- fixed: open m3u file, remove blank/empty lines
- fixed: OSC, find window id of vlc 1.0.6, and of SDL playback windows
- fixed: added all required vlc png icons to the pet package

Please let me know if I actually fixed anything at all!

Hi scOtman

Thanks for your help with this. I have installed vlc-gtk 2.6.7. I can play video files and dvds. However I cant get any of the streams to work. I do have rtmpdump-2.4-i486 installed. I am using vlc 1.0.6 lucid. This has its own gui but I thought as yours looked quite lite it might be better. I ran vlc-gtk in a terminal then selected nasa tv1 which usually works OK here. I have attached the output which I hope helps.

Regards,

Ken.

I think the NASA URL needs to be updated, it doesn't work for me either..

If none of them work, I guess its rtmpdump - but I played BBC World News, AlJazeera, RTNews, and others on Lucid 528 yesterday without problems.. Can't remember which VLC package I was using at the time, but i was using the rtmpdump from this thread..

The list of streams, if you wanna edit it, is in the file '/root/.vlc-gtk/vlc-gtk-faves' ..

Hi scOttman

Thanks again for your reply. I cannot get any of the streams I have tried to work including the ones you suggest. The version of rtmpdump I am using I got from your previous thread on streamplayer 0.2. The link to rtmpdump from the first post on this thread takes me to the same version of rtmpdump as I am using. I have just tried the three streams you suggested in streamplayer and all three worked. I presume this means the version of rtmpdump I have installed is working. It is using vlc so I am assuming that my version of vlc is working with my version of rtmpdump. However, I don't know enough about this to know if this is a reasonable assumption. Based on the above I can't see any reason why the streams won't work.

Regards,

Ken.

Edit. I noticed that the output of streamplayer was set to xvideo and so I changed the output of vlc-gtk to the same but it made no difference.

Well, the logfile *should* be working for you, so check that first.. By default it is /tmp/vlc-gtk_log_root, go to the 'Expert' tab to open it..

Also, you can click the 'Debugger' checkbox, and copy and paste the (edited) command that pops up into a terminal...



Last resorts, if you're feeling painfully helpful.. Are you using Xorg or Xvesa? Xorg I assume.. And if so, which Xorg module? The generic 'vesa' module? If so, it could be VLC-GTK is forcing you to use the X11 video output, even if you select xvideo..

Comment out all this stuff, lines 110-122:
Code:
#BK default video output needs to be adjusted...
if [ -e ${HOME}/.config/vlc/vlcrc ];then
   touch ${HOME}/.config/vlc/vlcrc
   DEFVIDOUT='xv'
   [ "`readlink $(which X)`" = "Xvesa" ] && DEFVIDOUT="x11" # 2.3.3
   [ -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf ] && [ "`grep 'card0driver' /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep '"vesa"'`" != "" ] && DEFVIDOUT="x11"
   sed -i -e '/^vout=/d' ${HOME}/.config/vlc/vlcrc
   if [ $VLCVERSION -ge 11 ];then #ex: 1.1.5
    echo "vout=xcb_${DEFVIDOUT}" >> ${HOME}/.config/vlc/vlcrc
   else
    echo "vout=${DEFVIDOUT}" >> ${HOME}/.config/vlc/vlcrc
   fi
fi


Lines 1258-1260 - just comment it all out as well...
Code:
   #131012 replace xvideo with x11 if using vesa xorg module, or xvesa server
   [ "`readlink $(which X)`" = "Xvesa" ] && C="${C/xv/x11}"
   [ -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf ] && [ "`grep 'card0driver' /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep '"vesa"'`" != "" ] && C="${C/xv/x11}"


Then VLC-GTK will not override your vout settings...

OR... Even more drastic:

In the function run_vlc () , line 1060, change all

cvlc $C

to just

cvlc

This will remove all options set by VLC-GTK and just run the file/stream in vlc with default options...

(The execute func, on line 1187 is the place where all options are put into the $C variable... if you feel like digging further!!)

Hi scOttman

Thanks for all of the suggestions for things I can try. I don't have much time just now but I have tried the vlc -gtk_log. I have attached its output. I had to do this in two parts. Again I do not know enough to know what this means but from what I can see it seems to be a problem with vlc. I have also tried the debugger and again I have attached it's output in two parts. I am using xorg_high-1.1-lucid driver which was suggested as the "best" when I first installed Puppy 528. I have not had any obvious trouble with it. I will try the rest of you suggestions later and report back later. Thanks again for taking the time to help with this.

Regards,

Ken.

VLC-GTK updated to 2.6.8

Bugfix release. See main post for download.

Changelog, 27 Feb 2013:

- fixed stream playback for older vlcs and vlc2.x (with --network-caching)
- fixed other options for older vlcs: --fmpeg-fast, --spu..
- fixed OSC - will now resize and center the video window and controls.. again!
- fixed: quieter terminal output for osc, hide some pointless msgs

keniv, this should fix your problem with streams, older VLCs (and your vlc 1.06) dont support the `--network-caching` option.. VLC-GTK will now use --rtmp-caching for older VLCs..
