Re: python code - which editor?

IdleX extends idle or idle3 into a very useful editor: Tabbed, horizontal scrolling, non-modal search, can execute Tkinter GUI programs and much more.
It can be installed via pip or pip3.

The list contains the names of the VLC packages which you have to remove, if you had VLC previously installed from the repository.

Re: Help installing and compiling VLC for my RPi3 under Raspbian

Nobody has successfully compiled VLC 3.x with OpenMax or MMAL support so far. It is simply broken. If you follow my tutorial step by step, you can compile version 2.2.8 with HW acceleration on Raspbian. I have not tested it on OSMC. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=195221 You ...

Re: Freezing during video streaming

This looks like your system has started to swap because it is running out of memory (RAM). It may appear "frozen" for a number of minutes. I increased the size of the swap partition to 2048 MiB, so I should have plenty of space there. I guess I'll need to try to run top when this happens if I can g...

Re: BASIC password questions

The default settings of Raspbian are a security nightmare because sudo does not require a password.
There's a tutorial by the Foundation which explains how to enhance security.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3B+ and Plex Issue

Presumably your Plex server tries to transcode the video which will not work on a RPi.

If it needs 23% of CPU just to stream a video, it must be terrible code.

Is there any chance to make kweb play these videos?

@gkreidl: it is possible to use your rtranscode with pipe output? I would like to integrate it as part of transcoding with VDR for example.
No, it's based on http-launch, a small web server.
But it should be possible to run it on top of VDR.
