Massive apologies to everyone. I didnt realize my work schedules was going to from 0 to 100 like that, or i would have been more cautious on pushing things forward.

I have less time to dedicate to linuxmce as im working on a new personal project, which means other features i was working on for other parts of the system are in the lurch right now as I bring my focus back to qorbiter.

If it makes anyone feel better, i have also been sorta of boned as these problems have affected me too, but being so damn busy no time to fix. the window has re-opened!

They are tagged correctly. I remember tschak saying, They Wohle eventuelle Benachrichtigungen selectable by show, season, episode....something like that.

Dunno what that means, but I will try to make the filters clearer..

I got the new qorbiter  and I like the way it looks....however I seem to have some trouble using it. When I want to watch my tv-shows, and select that from  videos, the list seems quite chaotic, so I switch to filenames, but with the new qorbiter, the buttons for this don't work.

I will take a look @ this. Im assuming the tv shows are tagged?

There is an update in the works. already in svn, build (both qorbiter AND linuxmce web admin) should be rolling out soon that should deal with this issue. Been lots of work on the issue as you can see in the timeline

There are some other things to note:
-qMediaPlayer is limited by the capabilities of your platform. What that means is, of you are on a mobile device, there are a lot of videos that just wont play due to codec issues. After spending a lot of time tearing my hair out over the last month or so, this is what ive found.

-Most MP3's play. Certain very high bitrate mp3's dont.
-Flac, OGG may work on Android, wont on ios
-Streaming audio seems to work fine.

-Specific requirements on both ios and android
  -.xh264 video codec
  -aac audio encoding
  -Bitrate / resolution limitations. A dvd quality file will play. a blu-ray quality file with struggle

Thank you for your patience.
I realize I get quiet and forget to update this thread.
@langstonius on twitter might get my attention
you can also keep track of what updates get released here:

Sorry about that automatically installed bit. Was an accident that has since been rolled back.

I will be adding configuration options screen for it. If you have a camera working under Advanced IP Camera, I would recommend that you continue using that.

The original scope of the NVR is to replace our current motion implementation. This is why.

While motion makes a good motion detection / image grabber, it is rather cpu intensive. So for anyone who has used motion wrapper, they know it can be a cpu hog that can slow down the core. So what this device does is manage other motion instances. It provides an http port for motion (say running on a raspberry pi) to post an event back to linuxmce to tell it motion was detected and to send pictures of motion events. This allows linuxmce to not be burdened with the cpu load of running motion, which will take more cpu the more cameras you add. This way, the cpu on the actual camera device is utilized, while inuxmce can serve in the traditional role of message passing. Also, this provides support for cameras that only provide and mjpeg stream as opposed to a snapshot.jpg, which open up the use of more cameras. It also supports standard snapshot.jpg cameras and I am currently working on the rtsp portion. There are some cameras that only serve up video over rtsp and im experimenting with different solutions to find the one with the lowest cpu impact.

So in summary
Linuxmce NVR is designed for
-Motion / Mjpeg streams
   -Reduce CPU overhead on the core
   -Provide support for mjpeg streams, allowing them to be used as traditional cameras in linuxmce
-Providing an http callback mechanism for camera devices that allow the posting of events to an upstream source
-Providing an interface for viewing rtsp cameras.
    -Long story short this is a pain because rtsp streams have a starting lag of 15s or more in some cases, which makes viewing it      instantly difficult without constantly streaming, to ensure the user starts viewing 'mid stream' and has enough data to get an instant, un garbled snapshot. But constantly streaming chews bandwidth and cpu, affecting scalability and core stability.

Currently Working on
-connecting camera on / off to security events
-other event settings
-http event poll

Thanks and again sorry for the random device showing up.

I've just tried this on my LG Nexus 5 Phone...
It wouldn't create a new qorbiter. I had the link on the bottom to create a new Orbiter ending with the '>'. But this wasn't clickable for me. I created a qorbiter myself in the webmin, and then I could select it afterwards in the Phone.

I see 2 problems for the moment:

- All fonts are to big for the buttons. But I remember to see this popping up in other topics/replies. So maybe I'll need to search for this first...
- The installation didn't created an icon on my phone. So I must rerun each time the apk file...

ps i've got another IP then the default one, I had to change the IP to But don't think that this should be an issue.

Is your phone rooted or something? There is no 'one time' install on android. Otherwise you would have to approve the app every time you opened it. As for fonts, I will look into that, maybe we need another build.

This thread is so long, that I'm a bit lost what the correct way is today to install the Qorbiter. On the wiki, some old/wrong links are located, so I don't think that that's the correct procedure to follow... :-[

Is it still:
  • On the core: apt-get install lmce-qorbiter-skins-android
  • On the phone: go to the webadmin, and install Orbiter For Android Qt5 from there
  • Wait to finish and enjoy

I've recently installed 14, so I'm very motivated to move on with the Qorbiter...   ::)

*No more apt-get install skins

  • On the phone: go to the webadmin, and install Orbiter For Android Qt5 from there

That should be all you need.

It installs and runs on my iPad 2 with iOS 8.3 perfectly, beautiful piece of software ^^
As i´m new to the qOrbiter, is the updates happen on the app or on the core with lmce-orbiter* packages?

Best regards //Daniel

Right now IOS is manual update while some legal issues are resolved. Long story short, releasing to apple app store costs me money (besides the money spent for developer account, hardware) so im doing the math to make sure i dont screw myself / run afoul of licensing. Would look bad to be a highly visible Qt developer who was flouting licensing agreements.

The current distribution method gets us around that (im pretty sure).

New ios build out.

@Pointman, you should be able to install it  now.

Mainly, fixes fonts, though data grids are a bit snappier as well.
