Developers / Re: How to set MPV as default player for LMCE
« Last post by posde on April 09, 2016, 06:34:12 pm »
The correct way of doing things would be to create a new plugin / player combo for MPV, just like phenigma did for the rpi with omx plugin and omx player. It is not wizardry, and a lot of existing code can be copy and pasted, but it is a road that will take a few month to complete.

OR, use ffmpeg to recode the mp4 so that the regular players can play them. It is my experience, that you will always find files that someone encoded in a way that some players can't play them as good as others. The engine that is best at playing files is a round-robin. This week it might be MPV, next week it is the latest incarnation of VLC, followed by some gstreamer based system two weeks from now.
Developers / How to set MPV as default player for LMCE
« Last post by Govo on April 09, 2016, 03:46:04 pm »
Hi Folks

I posted a while back about some of my mp4 videos not playing correctly to the MD under this topic

I decided to test the same video's out on my laptop running 64 bit Of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Open the video  under the normal Ubuntu player  and it played as expected,  installed xine player,  open the same file and got 6 seconds of audio before dying... same thing happens when playing on LMCE MD.

Done research and installed VLC player, libdvdcss2, and every other decoder available to Ubuntu still no joy.

Video plays audio for 6 seconds, skip a head the video plays but then freezes.

Certain videos play fine and load instantly with the  same result with LMCE 14.4.

Read this topic today it seems MPV is new mplayer.

This mpv player along with Ubuntu's build in player and VLC play the videos.

So my question is, how hard is it to set either of the above players  as LMCE default player, removing xine from the system.

Or am taken a trip down the wrong lane?

I look forward to your response's

Installation issues / Re: ZWN-BPC z-wave 360 PIR motion sensor
« Last post by RayBe on April 07, 2016, 03:45:45 pm »
Ok, i got the motion sensor of my HSM100 sensor working.
This is what i had to do:

First i deleted the Motion Detector #54 DT, that i added, from the tree.
Then i did a reload and added the Motion Detector #54 DT again.
After this, i did another reload, this one is not mentioned in the wiki, but as far as i can tell at the moment, this is the one thats important, because as far as i know, when doing a reload, all DT's and child DT's get properly read again.
After this i did a sudo killall ZWave to restart the ZWave device.
Then i opened the Advanced ZWave page in webadmin, looked up the device and opened its Associations tab.
I had to set a association from the group motion to the controller node 1, this was not done automatically.
This is necessary, because only when set, the controller gets motion events.

Did another reload and a bit of rule #1 and voila, everything in working order.
Hope this helps you too,


EDIT: i updated the wiki with the above info.

both are irrelevant afaict. This is a new *ZWave* device. It must be known to our ZWave stack, as LinuxMCE already knows about motion detectors. If I were in your shoes, I would create an issue on make a note of all the information you have, and assign it to sambuca.

Hi Tompin2,

I have also been struggling with the motion part of my HSM100.
I did also follow de wiki you mentioned, to the letter.
What helped me, with 1 sensor is to exclude and re-include the sensor again and repeat the steps mentioned in the wiki. I had to do that several times.
Now one of my 2 motion sensors work, the other one i am still playing with.
Hope this helps.

you may wanna print this out.

also, This may not directly apply to our case but gives good idea how to make a device plug in play,, in this case ,, I believe we want to make a device template that is plug in play.

hope that helps,,

Can you please provide update on your experience. I am planning to go for z-wave stick gen5 route and probably add some dimmer switches and more.

I am also on 14.04 install.

Hi Theteju,
No much luck so far due to I cant find detail documentation on the ZWN-BPC.  I would like to know which "# number" does what so I can make a new device.

If you go the 14.04 and zstick Gen5 you will be ok.
I have up and running.
4 leviton vrcs2-mrz , Many dimmers and single switches, 1 3way configuration etc, etc. 
Total of 25 zway switches.

If any one have a hint on how to make a new device.. Im all ears.

Developers / QML Development for qOrbiter

Thanks to golgoj4 we finally have a nice wiki page detailing how to do qOrbiter QML development.

has all the details you need.

has a couple of lines of code to get you a head start in development. The good thing about QML dev'ing for qOrbiter is, that no compilation is needed. Your JavaScript and HTML knowhow should help you move forward.

Let the skins roll in!
Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Integration of streaming sites?

You can go that route. You will have whatever interface the application uses that you start, plus the ability to use the "mouse" control via Orbiter.

What would be nicer would be a real device template, which would talk to kodi's XML interface, send commands from buttons on your Orbiter remote. But that is much more work.
