media player ecosystem is coming along! Now i need to just make a path from the core to the qOrbiter in question.
But seriously, the qMediaPlayer plugin is up and running. this is a big effing deal!
Yes... yes it has* l3mce gives bongowongo the hard eye
wassupwitdat? Snapshots are doing silly crap now... MAYBE. Mr. Manager... too busy for his peeps. I see. Cool.
I was gonna visit your windmill and stuff.
Wireless chipsets don't support bridging,... That's the difference.
Has anyone tried this?? ... Setting up a diskless media director in VirtualBox on a portable PC (laptop, netbook, X86 Tablet) and using it as an Orbiter...
I was toying with this idea in my head... since there a number of things that people (and I) would like with orbiters, like; media playback, updating/refreshing sooner, full communication control, etc.
I see from the wiki that Jamo had used a Fujitsu Stylistic 3500 as a limited media director/Orbiter,... but was wondering if anyone had done this with a VM,... and whether you were able to hack the shutdown to allow for suspend or hibernate, in order to bring the virtual machine up faster.
If anyone has done this, have you created a fake room for the device, so that it wouldn't change another media director's output by default?
I'm going to give it a go, but if anyone has beat me to the punch, I'd love any tips you might have.
Daveygravey's right, the spamming was becoming an epidemic. This should take care of that,... hopefully.
I just installed the snapshot http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/LMCE-1004-20120412224425879.iso
In a VirtualBox inside of my Linux Mint 12 workstation here at work. No network as we are restricted behind a proxy.
Flawless install. Made the mistake of using UI2 masked on an under-achieving hp workstation. After changing it to UI1, nothing but smooth.
I can't wait to try this at home tonight. Now if only there was a way to back up all my IR device settings......
Either way. The above snapshot was perfect.
Excellent work. Now I can see if it will build all my little Foxconn Netboxes, with intel, without me fiddling about with xorg.conf files.
Also my core is an ATI based graphics chipset. But I was planning on core-only install.
Off I go. Home, Supper, Copy all IR codes, Nuke and Pave.......
Seth - LMCE DVD install, FTW.....
boot: is asking what boot parameters you want to use when loading the dvd. If you press enter it will load the menu which automatically enters these parameters based on your selection. Doing nothing, it will eventually timeout to live boot.Lol, did he mean that. Isn't that in the snapshot wiki?
Hi,Not really, maybe better results with 1080p?
I have a spare, powerful computer that I used as a research machine. I could use this as a media manger. Is there any conceivable advantage of this over a smallish, diskless media manager? I don't think so but thought I'd check!
