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.

Hi golgoj4,

I tried your latest iOS build, but it still won't install on iOS5 (latest iOS for iPad1).
Thanks for making qOrbiter on iOS happen.

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).

Hey,

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

Yes!

That should be all you need.

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

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 192.168.80.1 to 192.168.111.1. But don't think that this should be an issue.

One day I will understand why people have the need for a different IP address for their cores...

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.

Hey,

I don't understand what the next step is.  :-[
Can I do anything to help/test this?

I have a question regarding btw built in mediaplayback...at least what I saw in your airport video. I tried this at home. Qorbiter is setup  for my beamer. So I selected the location for beamer and then this device. I checked under advanced, it says media player connected.
However, when I click on media, either nothing happens, or I get an error saying unable to load the screen.
Is that the current state, or am  I missing something?

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 http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac/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.

Audio
-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.

Video
-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: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-1204_pre-alpha

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.
