Developers / Re: Developing a Weather Plugin, videos
« Last post by mkbrown69 on Today at 04:10:19 am »

Looks like there's a missing graphic file that's causing the proxy orbitor to crash when selecting the radar button, if there isn't a radar graphic in the feed.  I would've filed it into Trac, but it doesn't seem to use the same credentials as the forum.

In the file here:

Line 54 references #define FILE_NO_RADAR_DATA "/usr/pluto/share/weather_no_radar_data.jpg"

That file is not present in the latest packages.  Everything else seems to be working fine though!

I've got current conditions going from the ISY driver to the weather plugin, and it's working well. Just working on getting all the forecast stuff parsing properly from the ISY subscription feed, and then that'll be straight forward to feed into your weather plugin.

Excellent work!  Thanks!

I'm in for ASUS TF201.

It's running Cyanogenmod ROM, so I'll understand if you don't want to include it, but I can also test on my HTC One M7. It seems to work fine with Qorbiter so far.

Golgoj4, awesome progress,
The amount of work you did in the past several years on this is incredible.
My biggest of compliments!
Count me also in for testing on 2 devices (iPad first gen and iPhone 4s)
(I helped Foxi352 test this way also when he was developing RoamingOrb)
Let me also know when you need the UUID's.

I don't care about video playback on a remote. So, if you ask me, invest your precious time in other qOrbiter endeavors.

I'd love to be able to play mythtv live tv&recordings on a rpi and occasionally on an android device.

Personally I don't care much about apple: android is getting most of the market share and since they are much more affordable anyone able to buy an apple should be able to get a simple android device.

That said being able to play everything on every device is the best of course but probably not worth the efforts.

Anybody a suggestion on how to stop this except pulling the wan plug? I tried adding a firewall rule to the input list:
ipv4    input            tcp & udp      5060          DROP      Edit Delete

that does not help.

I tried renaming /usr/sbin/asterisk and that also does not help.

So, maybe this is a personal problem, maybe its more than just me.

Being able to play Audio/Video consistently across multiple platforms is...tricky at best. Moreso video than audio, but both can be challenging. But, its still something i would like to have. yet, one thing ive come across is something that is still present in 2014. The codec problem. Some devices support this, some support that, some like one container over others when the stream contains the same content. I could go on. What I have learned is that, MKV is king. It has such great support for many of the features we like, such as multiple video streams, wider choice of audio streams, subtitle support, etc. However, MP4 (m4v) seems to be the widely accepted standard for non htpc solutions like phones and tablets across the big players in those markets.

I have pretty much doubled down on mkv, which, to my dismay i have learned is a non starter with an ipad and a hit and miss situation on my Nexus 7. Sooooo. What to do? Well a lot of time has been spent so far, with actual practical results coming out of it. We now have an html5 capable audio/video streamer (sorry no dvd or live tv folks, though possible). But the main question is this.  Am I the only person who cares about this? If so, i should likely direct my efforts elsewhere in the qOrbiter eco-system as now, audio seems to work pretty well.

Yeah i was looking into and it seems i can use up to 100 devices before needing to submit to the app store.
Right now i need to make sure that this alpha version runs on other things besides my ipad (all i have to test) and then there will likely be a lull while i solve some issues like:
*Consistent deployment setup
*Network / Audio cutting off when it goes to the background
*Saving Retrieving Configuration file.

So far, working on the platform is
*Starting (obviously)
*Loading screens
*Running screensaver
*Playing video* with issues...
*Playing audio with out issues

So its pretty much on par with the Android Qt5 version

In case someone is asking: what beta? It is for the iOS version of qOrbiter.

Apple in their indefinitely doesn't allow people to just download apps to test them. They have to go through the app store which can be a long and (for us) very complicated process. To circumvent this, the developer can create an app and mark it usable for a specific device. So, if you have two iPhone 5s you want to test qOrbiter on, you will need two qOrbiter files. Nice, isn't it?!

Thanks golgoj4 for your work and determination to get things to all the platforms, even if some platform is more restrictive than others.
