To correct, install the latest java from java.com (1.7).

Even after doing this, java is still pointing to the Apple version via /usr/bin/java (as seen by "which java") and that version is probably still the apple version:
dsd$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_45-b06-451-11M4406)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.45-b01-451, mixed mode)

You need to link the Oracle Java 1.7 here:

sudo ln -sf /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java /usr/bin/java

sudo ln -sf /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/javaws /usr/bin/javaws

Now 1.7 should be the default java:
dsd$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_21"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_21-b12)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)

Then run streambaby as normal. Works for me. I have started and stopped the it and its seems ok.

Best,
dsd
For this to work correctly, I believe you will need to put quotations around the first directory path. Otherwise it will fail due to the space in the directory name of Internet Plug-ins.

like this
sudo ln -sf "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java" /usr/bin/java

sudo ln -sf "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/javaws" /usr/bin/javaws

Has anyone ever figured out a way around the 0xffff "IOException: java.io.IOException: Pipe closed" error?

I'm using Streambaby and all videos work perfectly except for home videos recorded from our iPhones. I found a work around to bump the quality so that the videos are transcoded. However, I'd like to avoid having to manually select the quality indicator and have Streambaby automatically transcode certain types of videos (H.264 video in a MOV container - I think. Definitely an MOV extension). My DVD and TV show rips are in H.264 MP4 container and I would like to avoid having those transcoded since they work perfectly as is.

I'm aware of the mp4mod.streamformats.disallow= INI setting but it doesn't seem to work setting to "mp4mod.streamformats.disallow=mov" and restarting Streambaby.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I have applied the changes suggested above for using the Java update with streambaby osx.

It worked great under the previous version od java. Now I get the error shown below.

Thumbs down Problems with libjvm.dylib plug-in

I've been running StreamBaby for quite some time from a Mac without any problem ... that is until recently. I suspect this is due to some of the recent Java or OSX updates, and I've tried following the threads on this forum to address them, but I've not been successful.

On the server side I'm running OSX 10.8.3 with the latest Oracle Java (1.7.0.21). I need to use the latest Java for some other applications running on the same box, so going back to the older Apple version isn't an option. Every time I try to play a video from the TiVo interface it crashes, and the message I see on the StreamBaby server says:

StreamBabyMain quit unexpectedly while using the libjvm.dylib plug-in.

Any suggestions or thoughts on how to address this?

Fast Forward with .tivo files

When streaming a .mpg file, streambaby fast forward works correctly. It shows thumbnails and when I press play, it restarts streaming from the selected point in the video. (The .mpg file is a .tivo file that has been decrypted with kmttg.)

However, when I stream a .tivo file, streambaby fast forward does not work correctly. When I press play, it always restarts the streaming from the beginning of the video. Is this how streambaby works with TiVo-encrypted files, or do I need to change something? I was hoping to be able to stream downloaded .tivo files to another tivo without the need to decrypt or push the whole file.

Note that it also shows just the time in text instead of thumbnails when fast forwarding a .tivo file.

I have a 5.1 mkv file on my mac and with streambaby, if I let it preload a bit it plays fine -
but - it plays in 2 channel Dolby PL II digital - is there a way to send/hear the 5.1 sound through the Streambaby and the TIVO?

Television shows I watch via FIOS/cable in 5.1 mode play just fine ...

OK, I also had my Stream Baby Stream break after the upgrade to Java 7. I run Windows 7 64 bit. I was on the old 0.29 version so I upgraded to the "streambaby-20120828-2030" version. I replaced the cobra.jar file with the patched one and restarted Stream Baby Stream. No luck. It's still broken.

I run it as a batch file not a service. Here is my .ini file, pretty basic:

#
# ./streambaby --help for more configuration file options
#

dir.1=D:\Tivo
dir.1.name=Tivo
dir.2=E:\TV Shows
dir.2.name=TV Shows
dir.3=E:\Movies

dir.4=F:\The Joy of Painting

dir.5=E:\Dropbox

dir.6=F:\Captured Videos

# Ip address to bind to

#ip=192.168.1.37
# port to use

Anyone have any ideas of something to try?!?

I am going to assume it is transcoding since it is a MKV file. If you manually transcoded it to MP4 with AC3 5.1 audio the audio would be preserved. However when Streambaby (FFMPEG) is transcoding it is replacing your audio to Stereo AAC audio.

Series two support

I have dtivo with hme working. I also have streambaby working except for play the files of course, but would it not be easy to support series two ty format as many builds of ffmpeg can convert to ty on the fly. If streambaby allows ffmpeg to transcode to series 3 format which I assume is .tivo and newer series probably has codec to play mp4 on board the units. If I was a coding guy it seems simply, maybe not. But it seems if we used a ty producing ffmpeg for series two, why can't stream baby be made to use ffmpeg to transcode to ty on the fly to series, much like tivoserver did in the past over HMO. If stdout was used to pipe to transcoded mpg,avi or mpg to ty format. StreAmbaby would at least in my opinion work on series 2.

Thanks

Look at the batch file. Since you mentioned upgrading to Java 7, I am guessing the batch file is pointing to the Java 6 directory.

Here is the Java path from my setup w/ Java 7:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe"

*Also, I have had to delete StreamBaby (including cache) and then reinstall it a few times. Naturally, set a copy of your ini file aside so you can make your configuration earlier.

I've had StreamBaby running on my WHS2011 box for sometime now. But lately none of the TiVo units can connect unless I try some trickery (reboot WHS2011, Restore StreamBaby from a known good state, reboot TiVo's).

Configuration
- Using JRE 1.7.0_25
- StreamBaby port is enabled in the ini file
- StreamBaby port is open on WHS2011
- WHS2011 has the port forwarded to it on my router
- WHS2011 has a reserved IP in my router

Any ideas of what I may have to look at?

Most recent example:
TiVo Premiere (2 tuner, connected via network cable) was not able to access StreamBaby. Rebooted TiVo Premiere, still unable to access StreamBaby. Closed StreamBaby and tried again. That didn't work, so my next step is to reboot WHS2011 and try again later (I'll update when I get back).

Os 10.8.4

Has anyone gotten Streambaby to successfully stream an .avi on Mountain Lion?

I have read every forum and tried every hack/solution/iteration/version of Java and ffmpeg and keep getting errors. I'll fix one issue, but get another and can never solve them all. I even got the modified cobra.jar and nothing seems to work.

If you have it up and running, can you post your setup and .ini file please? I've been using PytivoX for a long time and then it broke with a recent update just like many others here. This place is a goldmine of information, but unfortunately I haven't found a solution yet.

Thanks to everyone who posts their findings here!

Anyone know why Streambaby would be seen by Tivo on a wireless laptop but Streambaby running on an ethernet (to the router) computer doesn't show up on the Tivo? Something with my router or with the Tivo Premiere?

Series 4 & 5 TiVos using HDUI don't always update the Showcases entries when running local HME applications. Try following sequence to reset the HDUI which should make streambaby appear if that is indeed your problem:
Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Play, Play.

I have this issue also with all videos that have a .txt metadata file.
There is no image: line in the metadata .txt file.
The video will play fine if I rename the .txt file, what else in the .txt file could be causing this issue.

Here is an example that will not play:

The Mary Tyler Moore Show (S01E01) - Love Is All Around.mpg
The Mary Tyler Moore Show (S01E01) - Love Is All Around.mpg.txt (if I rename the .txt file it loads and plays fine.)

My guess as to what causes it to fail are the 3 names without values.

Any other ideas?

Would someone please post a Metadata file that works for them.

"description" value has quotes which may be causing problems. You could just try trial and error approach - make a copy of current file, delete half the values and try again, repeat until narrowing down to 1 or more fields as the culprit.
Here's a sample metadata file that works fine for me:
Code:
title : Rescue Me
seriesTitle : Rescue Me
description : A no-nonsense woman, looking for a date, shows up at the firehouse talking trash; Janet offers Tommy an ultimatum; Needles and Lou concoct a battle of the sexes.

I was thinking it could be the colons in the description, confusing the parser.

Strange...I copied and pasted the text of your "Rescue Me" file and my videos will still not play with that as the .txt file.

Strange indeed. Maybe there's some caching happening? Perhaps try re-starting streambaby.

Even a .txt file with just a title will not work.
Code:
title : Love Is All Around
Is there anything in the streambaby files that needs to be modified in order to use metadata?

Below is my streambaby.ini file FWIW.
Also, note that I'm not using the latest streambaby version with search capabilities added as I'm not sure what changed in it. Version I'm using is the 2nd latest:
http://code.google.com/p/streambaby/...2.zip&can=2&q=
Code:
dir.1=c:\home\dvd
title=streambaby
autogenerate.continue=false
use.title=false
sort.filename=true
mp4module.interleave=false

cc.background=0
cc.background.transparency=0
cc.textcolor=yellow

#pushes
tivo.username=xxxx
tivo.password=xxxx
tivo.mind=mind.tivo.com:8181
