417: Gxine 0.5.904

July 29, 2009 — BarryK
In recent discussion in the Pstreamvid forum thread puppyluvr and trio suggested that a later version of Gxine will play streaming video "better", so I have upgraded Gxine to the latest version, replacing the aged 0.5.9.

It seems to work ok. I had to hack the source code though, as it has svg images that gdk-pixbuf is unable to display. The hack forces Gxine to use png images instead.

I had to edit src/ui.c to make it ignore svg icons (as gtk cannot display them):

name = gdk_pixbuf_format_get_name (fmt->data);
if (!strcmp (name, "xxx")) /*BK replace svg with xxx*/

# export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include/seamonkey -I/usr/include/seamonkey/js -I/usr/X11R7/include"
# export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib/seamonkey -L/usr/X11R7/lib -lXinerama"
# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --disable-integration-wizard --without-dbus --without-hal --with-logo-format=image --disable-lirc

# make
# new2dir make install

I ended up with a PET package of 189KB.
