    I'm using Streambaby-0.25 with my Australian TiVo and it works a treat. I have the home network package and a MAK for $99 and even though I resent the price I really like the product.
    Should I upgrade Streambaby with all going well?
    Thank you Keary for your outstanding application.

    +3, as well as the ability to run some sort of predesignated application on it (i.e. pass the file as an argument to a user-designated application for remuxing, etc).

    If we're talking about "delete" as in "delete from the streambaby server", I think this is a terrible idea. There's too much potential for confusion, given that "delete" on a Tivo has always meant "delete from this Tivo".

    This is basic "User Interface Design 101" - a specific function should ALWAYS behave exactly the same in all areas of the interface.

    I believe the underlying meaning of the proposed streamBaby delete operation should read : "delete this file from streamBaby server's file system". I can't really see how this would be very ambiguous, or could cause confusion.

    I like the ability to call a custom script command (As defined in the streambaby.ini) and pass in the path and file name. This would allow some people to delete the files, or whatever other tasks you wanted to do with the file.

    So +3 on the custom script functionality.

    This could be an optional feature with, with the default set to no. We're all adults here.

    Playback issue -

    I did a test conversion of one vob file from a movie - it played back fine. When I converted the whole movie it just sits at please wait.
    So i have a movie I ripped in DVD Fab and then did a conversion in Handbrake.
    It is the CQ setting with MP4.
    Any way to see what is happening with the whole movie?

    The dvd fab plays back fine.

    I'm running Streambaby-0.25 on my Australian Tivo series 3 and I want to say what a great program it is. I have a couple of minor issues so I hope you don't mind if I ask a couple of stupid questions.

    Firstly, when I run Streambaby I am getting the following message:

    FFmpegJavaVideoModule: Unable to load FFmpeg native libraries

    I have added the correct ffmpeg.path and the individual paths to the library files to my streambaby.ini file but I still get the message. As far as I can tell everything is running as it should, so is this a problem?

    Secondly, my girlfriend downloads a lot of files in Realmedia format (.rmvb) which Streambaby does not recognise. If I can get these stream to the Tivo for her she may forgive me for spending so much on the Tivo and I might even get some lovin :eek: I noticed that ffmpeg verson .5 is supposed to support some forms of Real Media.

    I just installed this on my PC... I can see it on the Tivo side, but there is nothing to view. How / where do I put the movies I want to stream?

    Also, is there a way to stream from Hulu on my PC to Tivo?

    Thanks,
    Pete

    P.S. I'd even settle for FAQ or something. :D

    You need to edit streambaby.ini to tell it where your movies are (dir.1, etc)

    No

    Plenty of documentation at http://code.google.com/p/streambaby/w/list

    It's not a *huge* problem. It just means when generating preview thumbnails for the small window 'ff'/'rew', it will use the ffmpeg program instead of the libraries directly. Everything else will still work. Most likely one of the libs has a dependency on another lib, and your linker/loader doesn't have it in the library path (I'm guessing here).
    You may get some mileage out of specifying
    Code:
    lib.native=<path to your libs directory>
    in streambaby.ini (pointing at the directory where the libavcodec and friends are living).

    Dump her. Nobody should be using Real..

    Alternatively, you can edit streambaby.ini and add the extension by specifying something like
    Code:
     extensions=mp4,mpeg,vob,mpg,mpeg2,mp2,avi,wmv,asf,mkv,tivo,m4v,raw,3gp,mov,flv,rmvb
    
    (I took the current default and added rmvb to the end... ) Note that this doesn't guarantee your ffmpeg will be able to read the file correctly.. You need to make sure you have an ffmpeg that can. All this does is tell streambaby to try using files with that extension as well.

    What would be the best way (quality wise) to deal with mp42 files in order to babystream them to Tivo? In the original form they manage to reset/restart my Tivo...
    Format : MPEG-4
    Format profile : Base Media / Version 2
    Codec ID : mp42

    Is there a mp42 to mp41 converter or some tool similar to the gotsend family for xbox and ps?

    Thank you

    1080p/60 H.264 @24 Mbps - is that a Blu Ray rip? It's probably too much for Tivo decoder to handle. I don't know what the upper limit is for Tivo H.264 decoder but looks like you are hitting it. Is it an S3, HD, or HDXL unit you are streaming to? The S3 has proven to have a sub-standard H.264 & VC-1 decoder compared to HD/HDXL units which is why I ask.

    I have streamed blu-ray rips to the tivo with out problems (Once we got the 64 bit MP4 issues panned out). I used 8 Meg bit rates and could stream it fine. The only real issue is that you only get about 15 minutes of video before it has to recache due to the 1.1 Gig limit.

    Occasionally I would get audio synch issues due to the break occuring in a strange spot. But to resolve this I just had to stop the video and then resume. (Once I had to jump a minute ahead of hte buffer to get the audio back in synch).

    I have streamed AC3 as well as AAC-LC audio. I have the Tivo HD BTW.

    It is actually the native 1080p/60fps recording mode of the new Sanyo VPC-FH1 camcorder ($500). Transferred the files from the SDHC card and hoped I could stream them directly to my Tivo HD. Seems I have to downgrade them? In the streambaby wiki it says something about mp41 max.
    Any ideas?
