Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Subtitles
« on: November 15, 2007, 02:21:17 am »
Yes, you are right, i am not a developer, as i said, coding is not my area of experty, that doesn't mean that i am a total dumb, i believe.
I would really like to help your project in some way, maybe translations or something, but for now i am trying to contact a developer of a program that i really would like to implement here in my country, so, for now i can't assume a compromiss with anything, maybe until the end of the year, if your developers want, i can say something.
Another reason that is making me old back to assume any offer of help is that in this few days i heard that Carlos is thinking of ending the development of Kurumin, a sad information for the Linux comunity, i believe. But he offers the chance for others to take on his work and if i can gather a small team to help Kurumin not to die.........maybe, just maybe.(Probably just in dreams i can gather a team in my country, that is not a very realistic one week i will see if it is possible or if i will just remaster the same version of Kurumin for my personal fun.......... :'( :'( :'()
For now i will continue to have fun with your software and keep my old CQM1H conected to my other box taking care of my home automation.

Keep up the good work  ;) and lot's of fun to all  ;D

I believe that in many countrys people need a full subtitle suport, this meaning that LMCE is able to detect and open all kind of sub files, either integrated or separated.
hope you all can managed that  ::)

Hi all  :D

But look on the bright side, at least your english will be improving. Wink 

I agree  ;) we always have to look for the brighter side  ;D

And I'm guessing that LMCE (pluto actually) wasn't really designed to play discs with rips on them.

In my opinion is a great fault..... people when they think of a MC they think on a program that can deal with all, or at least, the majority of media files, not just some files......
But in the average LMCE IS indeed a Great Program and i hope you can continue to develop and achieve a great success  8) (just the part that allows people to save the effort of creating a ladder, build a SCADA, install apache and wap modules, etc is priceless and i hope you all continue with this because your program is the future being transported to now.....congratulations).
So i will continue my experience with LMCE despite all the troubles ;), maybe in a future release the suport that i, and i'm certain, lot's of people need, will, sometime be implemented.
For now all of my doubt's are cleared and i would like to give a special thank you to the user Zaerc that always tried to help this poor noob :-[ :-[ keep up the good work.... ;)
And a big thank you to all that had questions in the past and to all that did the replyes, that's how i manage to get all up and running without being a "pain" to all  ;D  ;D

Ok, problem solved for the .srt files or other sub files separated from the video file (i have to encode again and embeb the subtitles).
But i'm still confused about the .vob files.... why doesn't LMCE open the sub's?
In my 6 days testing the software, LMCE only opened subtitles in my original DVD's,  (unfortunetly i suffer with two situations: 1º in my country movie DVD's are very expensive so i riped backups to avoid ruin the originals, 2º because i don't have much HD storage, almost all of them are in DVD disc's)  all this to say that it is a giant task to use the rip option from LMCE to be able to enjoy my movies......... :P
With all of that saying i just want to ask if there is any way to enable in LMCE all of the options existing in Mplayer or Xine or if i ask in the "Feature requests & roadmap" for a full suport of sub files might be a chance of doing it (i believe that might not be very easy).
About the other problem....... any ideias of why, at least with me, i can only watch divx/xvid, vcd, svcd from the hard drive??

I am sorry if i'm such a noob and a poor english speaker but i really apreciated some help............sorry :-[ :-[

To see the movies in the kde desktop i've used Kaffeine wich i believe gives the same result as opening the files with the xineUI.
What i think is very strange is how i can see the movies in the kde desktop with sub's and in the LMCE don't.....i can figure out why....i'm starting to try and see the conf files to see if i can get an answer but until now with no aveil.  ???

In some post on the forum was said that LMCE does not support separate files for sub, in my case the divx cd's all have a separate .srt file so he will never read the subs. Is this correct?
For the issue of not opening xvid/divx, vcd, svcd directly from the tray i tried to conect another box to the core and the result is the same, a message saying that can't open the media. I tried a reinstall and the result was the same.
About the riped dvd's subs also i can't see them, in the dvd options is always off.
Can somebody give a clue about this? If i try to see the same movies in the kde desktop all works like a charm........

In my opinion i believe that the pictures showned like a random screensaver should be searched in the local folder instead by default in flickr and if the user donn't want or doesn't have any pictures to slide offer the option to get them from flickr.

Just my 2c......  :-[

I have some videos made by me and some movies in .avi and if i try to play them from the DVDplayer the LMCE doesn't recognise the file but if i store them in the HD they are recognized. On top of that i can't access subtitles in any way.......
It's a problem since almost all of the movies are in English and i'm Portuguese, besides most of the media files that i have are in CD or DVD and it is going to take a long time to transfer all to HD's...... :-[ :-[

Thank you

Thank you for the replies.

1. Possible but probably not easy, I expect that would probably take a lot of figuring out.

I was asking that because if i insert some media in the dvddrive i have no subtitles, always OFF with no other option, but if i go to the kde desktop and open the same dvd i have the subtitles  ??? (by the way where do i find info about all the media files suported? Ex.: Mpeg, Ogg, Theora, xvid, etc....).

Zaerc and tschack909:

I think it's a known limitation of LMCE to only utilize a single optical (CD or DVD) drive.  You can find some more information on suitable hardware here:

keep in mind you also have support for jukeboxes...and while you can only have one standard optical drive per CAN have one on each machine, and it will utilise can have multiple jukeboxes.


Got it ;)

Hello to all  ;D

In my first post i just wan't to say that i really like the program, i was looking for a good Media Center to install in my family room and a week ago i stumbled upon this project, and i'm glad i did it...........  ;)
I did not, yet, purchased all the hardware i need but in this two day's that i've been testing the software i am very happy with it.
All the hardware for the MC was bought after a look at the forum and the user's experience and, i believe, because of that all thing's run ok  ;D
Now i just want to share my experience with my tests and my expectations with this program, so i will put a brief summary:

The installed hardware worked as expected conected to a Widescreen CRT through component (graphics, sound, etc)... just a small surprise with the DVD Drives because i can only use one.....  ???

Buy the rest of the hardware, TVCard, Remote........ I will probably need some help from you all with this  :-[  :-[ (and my budget is limited...)
Recompile Xine to be able to use all of is features???? Is it possible??
Conect the MC box to my DSLRouter (Is it possible with Wireless conection?)
Conect the MC box to my network (better Samba or NFS?)

For now, to you all, cya from Portugal  8)
