Opie Player 2 Troubles
« on: December 09, 2007, 10:16:17 pm »
Dear members,

I am new to this forum.. and I joined it because I need help regarding the mediaplayer of OPIE. I am totally new to the software field and hence facing several problems ..=)

I am basically working on a mobile reference platform board, which uses the opie 1.2.0 environment. The mediaplayer 1 that comes together with opie 1.2.0, when i tested it on my reference platform, had the following performance. It refused to play video (any format) and only .mp3 and .wav audio files played.

After learning that there was an opieplayer 2, I decided to import the codecs into the current filesystem that I would port to the board. I saved the codecs to the plugins folder. I got them from the ipkgfind.com website. This time the performance was as follows. It still refused to play video, but played .ogg audio files in addition to .mp3 and .wav audio files.

In terms of streaming, the performance did not change whether i used the new opie player 2 codecs or not. It played precisely just one .ogg streaming file that i obtained ( http://auggie.wclv.com/lo.ogg). All other .ogg and .m3u streaming files i tried (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2007Oct/0097.html ) gave me a segment error, SIGFPE and terminated the application completely.

My aim is to get the player working, i.e to be able to play video files and most importantly be able to stream. According to what I have read in forum posts and the opie home page, player2 should be able to do all of the above. Am I including the player2 codecs in the wrong folder?

If any of you could help me I would be more than grateful! Thank you..

Sincerely,
Raji

Quasar is currently not available for Opie as the recipes in OpenEmbedded are based on qt-x11.
Somebody will have to add the appropriate OE recipes for the qtopia version (should not be a big deal though as building quasar us rather straight forward).
