Title: New Videostream announced in c.s.n.s
Post by: Andreas on October 11, 2007, 07:06:15 pm
Henry have striked again:

---------- snip

Seems to be quite complicated to get things posted.... Are all
next-groups disconnected?


Anyway VideoStream 3.4 is available under:

         http://www.famkoplien.de/henry/NeXT/VideoStream.pkg.tar.gz

as Quad-FAT. Same applies to the Streaming goodies for Shoutcast :-)

         http://www.famkoplien.de/henry/NeXT/Streaming.tar.gz

Fixed several bugs, also in mp3 decoding. Now IDv3 support is contained,
a "band problem" was solved, xing is skipped etc, blabla... VideoStream
also plays AC3 and has the latest xvid/DIVX for Intel. So from now on I
am Thomson's pain in the ass... (or vice versa)  VideoStream also plays
lossless audio "shorten" (shn). See help file for more.

Simply enjoy
 Henry

PS: My home page is not fixed, but I don't care.

Hi Andreas,
  Just FYI, I installed Henry's new VideoStream on my x86 system running Openstep 4.2 and it ran fine.  But when I installed it on my Gecko running NS3.3, it fails to start up.  I sent Henry an email w/ the details from GDB.  I still need to install it on my TurboSlab & my Sparc 5 both running OS4.2 as well.  Thought I'd let everyone know that it don't work on the Gecko.  Hope things a going well.  Take care.

Do you have tried to move into the app-directory on the shell and start from the command line? This is the only way that it works on my VMWare Openstep

I haven't had a chance to load it on my other systems yet, but I tried that on the Gecko.  It still fails to start.  It's funny you mention you have problems w/ VMWare.  I loaded it on my image of Openstep under Parallels on both Mac OSX & Windows XP and it works fine.  I just ran the installer & it has no problems.  Obviously I don't have sound under Parallels, but I tested a few older videos.   I'll test it on my Openstep image for qemu that I have running under Solaris x86 and see if I have that problem.  

On a different note, can you drop me an email kb7sqi@yahoo.com.  I lost your email address.  I had a few questions for you.  :D   Take care.

Hello Andreas,

is you app-directory located on a NFS-mount mounted from your linux system?

If that is true check the setting of your linux filesystem if the option dir_index is turned on. When it's on turn it off and try starting the app the normal way again.

I had big problems with that in my own setup leading to the strange behaviour that some of the basic apps could not be started although the files were okay.

The problem is caused by the way NXBundle scans the app-directory and other directories for its lproj-subdirectories and in them for the nib files. When parsing the directory in NXBundle they chose to just skip the first two entries in the assumption that these are always the entries "." and "..". Unfortunately that is not always the case when the underlying linux-fs for the nfs-mounted directory has dir_index turned on. Then the dir-entries are returned in hash-order where "." and ".." are not neccessarily the first two entries. Due to that NXBundle can even skip over the lproj directory or other essential files (like mach-o files) when they are the first entries returned in the dir listing.

Greetings
Morgon

No, i have a real harddisk-file, formatted from the install procedure and no connection to the host filesystem
