ffmpeg 20111002svn recompiled

March 17, 2012 — BarryK
There was a report, if I can recall it right, that ffmpeg does not work properly with Pmusic as network support is disabled.

Hmmm, there is a '--enable-network' configure option, but it seems to be the default. But, the 'ffserver' executable is not in the PET package.

Anyway, I have recompiled with that option, this time have put 'ffserver' into the PET. Interesting, the PET is a bit smaller this time.

PETs (2.5MB, 2.9MB):

These will be in the upcoming Wary/Racy 5.3 Release Candidate 1.


ffmpeg network
Username: zigbert
just for the record.... To play radio-stations, ffmpeg with network support is _not_ required if streamripper is installed. This is a qualified guess, as ffmpeg is used to play the stream, but as a delay of the buffered stream of streamripper (http://localhost:8002). To support, ffmpeg must support internet streaming, since streamripper doesn't touch this feature.

ffmpeg configure options
Username: BarryK
"For the record, this is how I have configured the latest compile of ffmpeg: [i]# ./configure --prefix=/usr --cpu=i486 --enable-shared --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --disable-ffplay --enable-x11grab --disable-network --enable-small --enable-runtime-cpudetect --enable-libopencore-amrnb --enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-libdc1394 --enable-libfaac --enable-libfreetype --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libschroedinger --enable-libspeex --enable-libvorbis --enable-libvpx --enable-libx264 --enable-libxvid --enable-zlib --enable-postproc --disable-debug --enable-bzlib --enable-version3 --enable-libtheora --enable-swscale --enable-network --enable-libcdio[/i] The difference from before is that I have added the last two. Though, --enable-libcdio is the default anyway, and I thought that --enable-network is too. Note, Wary and Racy are now built with streamripper.

""and I thought that --enable-network is too." You used the --disable-network flag: # ./configure --prefix=/usr --cpu=i486 --enable-shared --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --disable-ffplay --enable-x11grab [b]--disable-network[/b] ...

"Barry said: [i]Note, Wary and Racy are now built with streamripper.[/i] This is great news for Pmusic-users. Both for those who listen to radio (more station and detection of playing artist - title), and for those who use the grabber function (called Radio-hits). Thank you Sigmund

re disable network

"Ha ha, so I did! Hmmm, so does my second --enable-network overrride the earlier --disable-network?

ffmpeg recompiled
Username: BarryK
"Well, just to be certain that nothing odd happens due to the earlier --disable-network, I have removed it and recompiled, and re-uploaded the PETs. The config is now: [i]# ./configure --prefix=/usr --cpu=i486 --enable-shared --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --disable-ffplay --enable-x11grab --enable-small --enable-runtime-cpudetect --enable-libopencore-amrnb --enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-libdc1394 --enable-libfaac --enable-libfreetype --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libschroedinger --enable-libspeex --enable-libvorbis --enable-libvpx --enable-libx264 --enable-libxvid --enable-zlib --enable-postproc --disable-debug --enable-bzlib --enable-version3 --enable-libtheora --enable-swscale --enable-network --enable-libcdio[/i]

puppy package manager
Username: pete22
"Most of the time when I open the puppy package manager, it refuses to show me any packages. This is true in both ziggy and classic form. I am sorry but I have never understood the instructions on how to add a new repo. When I read the instruction it makes my head spin. Perhaps someone could point me to a tutorial or something to help me. In the mean time I think it would be grand if you would add the repo for wary's and racy's big sister, [b]Saluki!!! ps I miss the page about our mascot teaching linux to the kangaroos. Can we get it back?

"I did report that ffmpeg needed disable-network to be removed. Now it is discovered again and there is some improvement in x11grab :
