    I read that you can push videos with streambaby. I just installed it and can stream but can not find out how to push movies so the movie is on the Tivo HD. How can I push movies?

    They play fine on my PC using Quicktime but I received a "Failed to Open Stream" message on my set.

    I receive the following messages in my streambaby.log file:
    05/04/11 23:55:05 ZipGeneratingPreview$GenThread: Generation Error creating zip pvw: C:\Program Files\Streambaby\cache\01 The Curse of Dethklok.m4v-131094948-d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e.pvw.tmp
    05/04/11 23:55:05 FFmpegExeVideoModule: FFmpeg failed to continue running... Assuming error

    Any help?

    Thanks!

    Mission...
    You have set your tivo username & password in .ini file:
    tivo.username=...
    tivo.password=...
    Then after you restart streambaby you get option to push.

    I have PyTivo running on my Mac Mini (C2D, 2GHz, 8 GB RAM) and it's been running fine to both my Tivos.

    At some point, I checked the operation of Streambaby and it was working on my HD Tivo. I could access it from the Showcase menu. Last night, I tried and it was gone. I have rebooted PyTivo and it doesn't show up. I will try to reboot the Tivo as well, but wondering if anyone had this happen and what you did to fix it.

    Thanks.

    pyTivo is a separate application from streambaby, so I wouldn't expect restarting pyTivo to affect streambaby. :confused:

    He probably means pyTivoX, which does include Streambaby.

    Ok, been fighting this problem for a while now, searching high and low but haven't found a solution.

    I'm running Streambaby 0.29, normally on a Windows Home Server 2011 server, but now on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit workstation while the server is down. My Tivo is a Series 3 HD. On both systems I get this exact same behavior in Streambaby: Whether running as a service or in console mode, when I first start it up it shows on the Tivo for a short time, probably 5-10 minutes, but I haven't timed it. While it's showing, I can go in and use it just fine and can watch videos for hours, but if I then leave the app, or if I wait too long to try it initially, it is gone from the HME apps list. If I restart the service, or restart the app in console mode, it shows up for a short while and I can use it. Any time I want to watch videos on my Tivo I have to restart the service first. I did make a rule in the firewall on both the server and the workstation to get it working initially. I have tried running it as everything from system account to different user accounts.

    Anyone have an idea what might be causing this?

    Not sure what's causing it, but I had something like this happen and worked around it by running the Abyss web server on the PC and following the information in this post: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=7487199#post7487199

    Grand. The ONLY machine that I keep on all the time that could serve this purpose is my WHS2011 box that also serves up the videos. I can't get it to serve the file, I get some cryptic error message: "HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler." I tried to find a fix, but nothing out there worked and I got tired of messing with it.

    I guess I'll stick to restarting the service whenever I want to watch videos. Why can't anything ever be simple??? :/ Thanks for your reply though!

    Nearest I can tell all mkv's are failing. Divx and other movie types play fine. Attached is the debug log. I tried increasing -Xmx256m to Xmx512m but dont think that is the problem because it fails as soon as I hit play. Can someone help?

    Placing a SRT file with an MKV file does not work. Any recommendations?

    I'm curious if the original developer or anyone is planning on updating Streambaby?

    Anyone have any ideas if something is in the works??

    Total Streambaby (and TiVo) noob here. Java is definitely installed (I did it manually to make sure), but when I try to run Streambaby, I get a "Java not recognized" error in the DOS window. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Just curious, why do you think Streambaby needs updating? I have had no issues with Streambaby in the several years I have been using it on my S3.

    Just because there seems to be a lot of unsolved issues on the offical Streambaby site that aren't being addressed.......

    I would like to know how to get images (movie covers) to show in the list and/or description of the movies I have on my server...... I can get the meta description and such, but haven't found a way to display the image of the movie.

    unless someone takes to updating it i dont think it will be updated.

    I would love to see metadata and folder images plus HD menus with it. I dont think we will see it anytime soon unless one of the few guys who still program for tivo do it.
