PostPosted: Fri 26 Feb 2010, 09:06    Post subject: vlc pvr bitrate  

Hi,

When using vlc to record from a pvr adjusting the bitrate has no effect.

For example the default bitrate (-1) would record an hours worth of video into a 2.7GB file.

Adjusting the bitrate to e.g. 3000000 should record an hours worth of video to a 1.4GB file with no deterioration in quality.

Is there any way this can be fixed?

Thanks fro your help,

Kino

yes it should work on 4.3++, Sometimes Barry used a different ffmpeg, and all you need to do is make system links ., you'll know when it checks for dependencies and gives you a list of whats missing, just make system to links to the current files.
example libavformat.so.52 should have a systemlink libavformat.so.51
libcdio.so.12 should have a systemlink libcdio.so.7

usr/lib should have libavformat.so.52 so make a system to libavformat.so.51

Wow! I am using a 450mhz Toshiba Tecra 8000 with 128mb ram with puppy linux 4.0, and this is working perfectly! I can't believe I can play a 284 mb mp4 video on this computer.

For a while I was using gxine, which just barely worked but sometimes had audio/video syncing issues and couldn't work with large videos. Then, presumably because of a lack of resources, it stopped syncing audio and video on large files and videos became unwatchable. I tried re-formatting, installing different versions of gxine, installing different codecs, switching to different media players, etc. etc. but I couldn't even get back to borderline functionality.

But I installed your package and everything works brilliantly. No missing libraries, no vertical lines, no choppiness, nothing but pure functionality. Thanks ttuuxx.

yes its double the size of Gxine but 1/2 the resources of Gxine, If you read the first say 5 pages of this thread you'll see a lot of people experienced the same shock and aww effect Smile lol

Subject description: flv troubles
 

some people have had more success with this than I have.

I'm using 4.2.1, and enjoying it, but tried the d/l from the first post in the hope of playing some youtube flv files. Unfortunately, they won't run in VLC, gxine or xine.

Does this mean there is a missing codec? (is that the right term?)

I am using xvesa, and I gather that can make a difference in some situations. Is this one of those?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Bones

PS: Youtube does work on seamonkey.

Hello,
Found this in /tmp/xerrs.log (this appears every time the icon is clicked):

Quote:
VLC media player 0.8.6h Janus
starting VLC root wrapper... using UID 0 (root)
***************************************
* Running VLC as root is discouraged. *
***************************************

It is potentially dangerous, and might not even work properly.
[00000281] main input error: no suitable access module for `cdda://'
[00000272] main playlist: nothing to play

@madcrow => Voir ce post

Regards.

That link is in French - I daresay only a tiny percentage of Forum members can read French.

Perhaps the Puppy Forum managers could add this international languange translation widgit?
http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/ultimate-web-translator-with-flags

I have used it here and it works well:
http://kd4e.com/wp.html

And if you click on the first link "Spanish Language Weather Resources" you can look at the Source and see how a single language-to-language (in this case English-to-Spanish) translation may be automated for a Web page:
http://kd4e.com/espanol-weather.html

Or here to see how one embeds the translation in the link to an external
Web site:
MyFoxHurricane - Espanol (via Yahoo-Babelfish)
