Another VLC release, another batch of updated modules. :) Attached are the Mac OS X modules. Just untar and dump them in VLC.app/Content/MacOS/modules. This will overwrite the existing libty_plugin.dylib which has not yet been updated to tx314's latest code. Compiled and tested on a G5 iMac OS X 10.4.3, and additionally tested on a G3 iBook OS X 10.3.9.

Edit - added linux i686 binaries, rename osx binary file

Thanks for the modules. VLC streaming is much nicer in 0.8.4 since the "skip forward 1 minute" now works for me with streams. Not quite as good as 30 second skip yet, but it makes skipping commercials much easier.

Rather than ask you to fix it for me, could you list what it takes to compile it myself? I know I need the VLC and tivo-vlc source.

You can find the source files and build instructions at http://tivo-vlc.sourceforge.net/

This is a pre-release version of 0.8.4, not the final release. Each release must be compiled separately for the plugins to work. In your case, you have three options for getting 0.8.4 plugins:


Fetch the source for 0.8.4-svn20040920 using 'apt-get source vlc' and compile the modules from there.
Add the appropriate software repository to your sources.list file listed at VideoLAN.org (http://www.videolan.org/vlc) and download the 0.8.4 final release, then use the plugins attached to this thread.
Compile 0.8.4 from source :)


Personally, I recommend option 2. It's probably the easiest.

added deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sarge main to the repoistory list, "reinstalled" vlc, fed it a tystream, and...

bash > vlc -vvv 'SCI FI Inside- Serenity-.ty'
VLC media player 0.8.4-svn20040920 Janus

BUT, it works! Thanks, SD.

Hey thanks a lot for the linux version, I've been trying to get this going for a while in Ubuntu now, finally managed to get the proper 0.8.4 and its all good.

I do have some general vlc tivo problems though, and they're exactly the same in windows and linux. I'm not sure if this is the correct thread for this but ah... what the hell.


One of the main problems I have is, say you've got a 2hr recording, I am unable to seek into the last 1/4 or so of the program. So what I mean is I can't move the progress slider to the last 1/4 without vlc crashing. But if I don't touch the slider, then it can play naturally into that last 1/4 segment itself without crashing. Again, this exact same behaviour is in both windows and linux with the same streams. The only other way to get to the end of the program is playing part of the stream ie /1 /2 /3 etc

Also I just get general crashes while watching a stream. I'll have to load vlc up again and skip ahead to where I last was, but it won't crash in the same place, which doesn't suggest a problem with the stream itself. It would be rare if I could watch even a 30min program without vlc crashing once.

Also, a couple of recordings I have of the cricket (go kiwis!) are over 4hrs each, but vlc only shows about 1:30hr of this. I can't get the exact time, because jumping to anything over 1:15 or so crashes vlc (see above problems). But 1:15hr is near the last 1/4 or less of what is available. Again, I can watch more of the stream if I queue up a bunch of tivo://tivo/123456/1 /2 /3 /4 etc but that's a real nuisance. And that also doesn't stop the general crashes that occur as explained above also.


Phew, so, does anyone else have these problems? Is it a problem with the plugins on my end (but two different running two different OSs, doesn't seem likely), or just a problem with the plugins in general. Is it a problem with the tivo, or vserver?

If anyone can help, or if you need more info on hardware/software/system setup, please get back to me.

Thanks!

what should
vlc tivo://tivo/plist
do ( assuming I have vstream set up on 'tivo' ) ?

vlc -f -vstream-cache=16384 tivo://tivob/1745622
works... ie. streams a show from my tivo.

vlc tivo://tivo/plist
starts vlc... I hear my tivo disk access ( it's 12" away from
my keyboard ) and then vlc says:
VLC media player 0.8.4 Janus
[00000276] main input error: no suitable access module for `tivo://tivo/plist'
should I 'see' my now showing list some how? I know that there is a
'fix' for mythtivo to work with the new 6.2 stuff and the older 4.x stuff.
It has something to do with the now showing display. Does this patch
need to be installed to get vlc to show you the results of the plist or
am I thinking it should do something that it doesn't?

I am using a Series 2. It streams to Windows Media Player, but I cannot get vlc-1.8.4 to stream. I loaded the Windows Modules, but the player just flashes when I force the stream to it. Am I missing a setting in VLC? I could not find a thread for any settings, but something is not quite right. I prefer VLC to WMP.

did you find/load the win32 vstream plugin? vlc-1.8.4 won't stream from
tivo's vserver without the vstream plugin. This posts has the binaries for
mac and linux.... it said that your on your own for a win32 bin....

before I loaded the linux vstream plugin, all VLC would do was flash when
I tried to do a tivo://machine/fsid. Once I downloaded and installed the
vstream plugin, it startd working.

Ok... I found that you run vlc tivo://tivo/plist and when it's 'done' , you
can go to the 'playlist' feature of VLC and see everything that is on your
tivo.

I found them by searching for win32 vstream plugin. Loaded them to the plugins directory under vlc. Still just flashes the program. I then searched sorgeforce, found some different r45 files. Still no stream. Am I placing the files in the wrong directory?

Has anyone built an x86_64 version of ths patch? I'm going too, but if someone
has already done it, let me know. I am trying to get my new x86_64 system
up to speed for compiles.... some things aren't working without me making
changes to the Makefiles and I'd like to know if someone else has already
looked at this.

Thanks - jack

I'm using VLC .8.4a on a windows box and I'm attempting to stream and transcoded shows from the tivo. This works without issue most times but on some files I only get audio. All files work properly if I do not transcode them. I have attached log life from a non working file. I have also attached the VLC plugins that I got from the forums here in case they are needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.:)

Mr Novice,

Are those plugins for VLC you posted compiled for version 0.8.4a? The windows binaries for tivo-vlc posted on sourceforge are for 0.8.2. Are you definitely using plugins for version 0.8.4? I not, this could be the issue.

Yeah the ones posted work with .8.4 and .8.4a I think that they were created by awind here (http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showpost.php?p=242312&postcount=58). I was having the same issues with version .8.2 and the plugins from sourceforge.

Thanks for the modules StaelthDave, I like using this for straming much better than TivoTool.

I'm using VLC .8.4a on a windows box and I'm attempting to stream and transcoded shows from the tivo. This works without issue most times but on some files I only get audio. All files work properly if I do not transcode them. I have attached log life from a non working file. I have also attached the VLC plugins that I got from the forums here in case they are needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.:)


Are you able to stream and transcode full streams? I am still using the modules for .8.1 and mine locks up. I might have to give the .8.4 modules a try if they will now stream/transcode a full stream.

I'm not sure what you mean by full streams? With .82 and .84 I can stream/transcode most complete shows and watch them without issue. Only certain ones have this issue and I have not isolated the cause yet. I do have the source code but I don't really know c/c++ well enough.

Hi All,

I love to know if anyone was successfully to watch their recorded VIDEOS from their TIVO box with VLC 0.8.4a MAC OS X Tiger?. I was able to make VLC 0.8.2 for MAC OS X Tiger work but the video pauses and plays contantly remote connection (not tested at home). I've UPLOADS Stream 712 kbps speed via my cable modem provider. 1) I like to if I can make any adjustments to make my video watching experience better than I what I've now. 2) Did any able get VLC 0.8.4a up with latest plug-in for MAC OS X Tiger?

I use TIVOTOOL to watch VIDEO but it has pause and play issue too after it caches the buffer and sometime of video player closes itself. It doesn't matter increase the cache instead it will happen in later time and if you'r watching VIDEO at home or remotely same result. If found that VLC 0.8.4a for Windows XP works perfectly at home lot better TIVOTOOL. No, pause and play issues...

I love to hear you feedback...



BTW, my TIVO network connectiion is not wirless but I use NETGEAR FA120 adapter which connected to my TIVO's USB connection and the other side network wire connected to to my network hub.. This is will give the best through put....

I have VLC streaming working with my tivo.

Is there a way to transcode/encode the image
so that it is 'smaller' and might be useable
over a slower, DSL link? The slingbox appears
to be able to do this on the fly.... can we do
something like that with VLC, or some other
software that runs on tivo/linux?

Thanks - jack

How you get pause and play active while you're watching shows remotely. If not how did you resolve the with VLC. I found that with MAC OS X version of VLC most of the time there is pause while I watch my shows and pays back and pause again. I increased the vstream-cache to 32 MB still same issue...


Any thoughts anyone...

Hi guys, I have a couple of newb questions:

1. Where do I get the vstream server to run on the Tivo?

2. Once I have that installed do I just choose "Open Network" and open tivo://<tivoip>/plist to get my now playing list or is there more? a specific port?

3. I read something about streaming through vlc's builtin webserver to watch shows from anywhere, is this possible or was that just talk?

Thanks

Anyone have success w/Ubuntu Breezy?

I get a loaded play list, then when I try to play, VLC crashes..... Sigh.....

Not sure if this thread is dead.... I really want to get this working.

The bins in this post did not work for me, so I tried to create my own. Ubuntu Breezy is using VLC media player 0.8.4-svn20040920 Janus. I download the VLC Source 8.4.0 and recompiled libty_plugin.so (following the source instructions) and moved the new binary to /usr/lib/vlc/demux. When I try to play a .ty file w/VLC I get the following (not all debug statements are listed)

[00000265] main input debug: `Judge Judy-.ty' successfully opened
[00000269] ty demuxer debug: parsing ty chunk #0
[00000269] ty demuxer debug: skipping TY PART Header
[00000269] ty demuxer debug: parsing ty chunk #1
Segmentation fault

I tried recompiling in the 8.4.0a source tree and received the same results. Tried playing the same .ty file in Windows w/VLC and it worked fine.

Any suggestions? Really want to get this working in Linux....

I managed to take the vlc-0.8.4a.tar.bz2 source on my FC4 / x86_64 system
and get it going from source. The first time I tried it, it ran but I got garbage
on the screen instead of a show. I tried to install from RPM Source and it
said I needed some additional development packages. I installed those....
then tried to compile the vlc-0.8.4a.tar.bz2 source again and it worked fine.
Once I have VLC playing a dvd, I did the lib_ty stuff and that works too.

I can provide x86_64 binaries that run on FC4.... not sure if that would
help you or not.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't think that would help me. I assume the _64 means you are running a 64 bit machine, I'm still at 32.

You've got the right idea; you should definitely be compiling from source. Luckily, however, you only need to recompile your modules.

Fetch the latest source from http://tivo-vlc.sf.net
Fetch the source for your version of VLC using apt-get:

$ apt-get source vlc
Compile modules using TiVo-VLC instructions

That second step is the key here. Each Linux distribution seems to include whatever the latest VLC snapshot is at the time the distro is built, which makes building Linux modules for each release problematic at best. It would also help if VLC would stablize their api so that modules didn't have to be recompiled between versions, but I digress. :) Try that, and see if it solves your problem.

I am running Hoary, vlc 0.8.1, and the modules just worked after I installed. Very impressive quality. From work the quality is too good for my cable internet upload speed to provide a usable stream.

I am also looking into the vlc stream option. I have tried it on the windows and a kubuntu box I have, and the stream never seems to "take". I have seen it *appear* to work, but when I try to connect to it, it doesn't exist.

The software (free) slingbox is huge for me. I think vlc is definitely the app to handle it, I just need to do some more digging.

I didn't think about getting the source from the distro. Duh... Anyway, I finally got 0.8.4a to compile and used the pre-compiled bins. Works great! Thanks for the contrib!!

I wonder if anyone can help.

I installed VLC 0.8.2 and vserver on the tivo - and dropped the r49 stream and r45 ty binaries into the plugin folder.... All works seemingly fine - VLC plays the stream. However - it is unstable - and frequently freezes and crashes. This happens on locally transferred ty streams on the PC - not only fronm the tivo - so I suspect a VLC problem.

I uninstalled VLC and installed 0.8.4 and the same happens. The odd thing is that it seemed to play the ty files before I dropped the 084 binaries into the plug in folder!!!??? Does this mean that it has some memory ofthe 082 versions??

I seem to be able to play the ty stream from tivo straight to windows media player without problms - but would prefer VLC as it can alter the aspect ratio...

Any ideas anyone? :confused:
