Re: Regarding VLC 3.0.0

I meanwhile managed to successfully compile VLC 3.0.0 (new dependencies have to be met), enabling both mmal and OMX, but neither MMAL or OMXIL output do currently work. Somehow , good news. On the other side, if that means that it can not use the GPU, it's actually unusable. Would you mind sharing ...

Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Stretch, RPi 2/3

This error occured after the "make j3" command, so it wasn't during the configuration as i stated earlier. Whether VLC is depending on Qt5 or not, for some reason it misses Qt4 files... Perhaps it tries to fall back to QT4. Run sudo apt-get update and then repeat all the installation commands from ...

so, do we need extra dependency package install?
Yes. For example, the QT5 interface was missing without adding another package.
why raspbian-lxde need QT5?
extra dependency needed by mmal & omxil?
The VLC GUI is built with QT5.

By default in kiosk mode kweb will automatically use the full screen size (whatever it is).

Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Stretch, RPi 2/3

How do you set the display to have black ground in OMXplayer? There are 3 major issues with omxplayGUI for me. 1. I don't know how to set the output to HDMI(as in command line version -o hdmi). So there is no sound when playing. 2. How do you set the background to black to avoid seeing the desktop?...

Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Stretch, RPi 2/3

Kodi switches faster between live TV channels than omxplayer, although it is also based on omxplayer (if you select it). BTW, this is not caused by OMX but by ffmpeg, which is used by omxplayer to access video files and streams, demuxing them and so on. VLC uses ffmpeg too, IIRC .... and is way fas...

Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Stretch, RPi 2/3

It's also a bit slow accessing live TV video streams. And that is what we are using it for in our projects. We absolutely can't live with start times of 5-10 seconds when changing channels or from off mode. In addition, the return values (i.e. by DBUS) sometimes are not reflecting the real state of...

Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Stretch, RPi 2/3

Stretching the video is not a good solution - everything gets distorted. VLC doesn't have an option to blend out the background as omxplayer can do. @McLion; If you want a player that offers what you are asking for, use either omxplayer (-b option) or use my omxplayerGUI, which does it automaticall...

This is very distracting. I will appreciate is someone can help me to play in full screen mode. Thanks. As said bef...

Yes, of course, using the ytdl-server. You'll find a list of all commands in the omxplayerGUI manual. But the dplay (direct play) command will return a (very simple) HTML page.
