Start a cmd window (Start->Run... and type in cmd) and then go to the directory where the run_win.bat script is (using cd command) and then run the script there (just type run_win). That way you will be able to see the error message.
My guess is you don't have java in your path. If that's the case either add java to your windows path or edit the run_win.bat script and replace "java" with the full path to java.exe.

How is everyone else dealing with the need/want to run the tivostream as a service and not having to have the console window running all the time?

I've downloaded this "wrapper" .. the gpl version.
http://wrapper.tanukisoftware.org

Anyone else have a more elegant solution? This works, but you have to know how to monkey around with java to make it go.

I haven't used Windows as my primary OS for several years - but there is/was a freeware tool (FireDaemon) that can be used to add most anything to the list of services. I wouldn't recommend it to someone who's not comfortable administering Windows, since messing with services can cause serious breakage; but I found it very useful on occasion, and think it'd fit the bill perfectly.

The minimize button?

I run tivostream through Galleon on Linux (which, coincidentally, uses the same wrapper).

LOL. That's an elegant design? I didn't want to have the command box minimized any more than I want to have it maximized.

Keary has released a new and much improved HME streaming video application. Check it out:
TCF thread
streambaby home page

For any of you who are using tivostream or tried it before and weren't happy with it this is a must try. Keary did an excellent job adding new features, especially the random access anywhere in a video (even for mpeg4) and the workaround for the 1.1GB limit - stream is automatically restarted at the point where buffer ends while you are playing. The preview method ala Tivo/Netflix implementation is also a very cool feature, not to mention transcoding of incompatible streams such that you can stream a wide variety of videos (similar to pyTivo).

This application obsoletes tivostream so I don't plan any more updates for tivostream.

Thank you Moyekj for all your work with Tivostream over the last several months and to allow its use to kick off Streambaby. You're a great developer who always listened to the users and tried your best to give us what we wanted. Thank you.

Thanks guys. Enjoyed it. My first experience with HME and Java so I learned a lot in the process.

As others have said, thank you moyekj for all the work you did on this, and are continuing to do in collaboration on the streambaby project.

I hope you will leave the tivostream info, source, and downloads available on Google Code for a while. I know that streambaby is likely the future, but IMHO for streaming h.264 video it's not yet quite on par with the current (final) state of tivostream in terms of problem-free viewing.

Just wanted to throw my 2-cents in here and thank moyekj also, both for all the work on tivostream and his help with streambaby.

I have to admit I was a little nervous when I first contacted him about streambaby, as I wasn't sure how he would react to a fork of tivostream. The offers of support/assistance/testing came immediately (all of which I took advantage of :-)

If anyone's still looking for an answer to how to launch batch files at boot in the background on XP (without a task bar icon or command window), one way to do it is to put the .bat file into the Scheduled Tasks list (start -> all programs -> accessories -> system tools -> scheduled tasks), set to run at startup and run as user "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" (without quotes; note space after NT and backslash before SYSTEM; this is in the properties dialog for the entry).

Thanks to everyone who's worked on the streamers -- absolutely fabulous.

Error 0xffff

It looks like there haven't been any posts on this forum since 2009, but I have just downloaded and installed version of StreamBaby released only recently so I gather it is still an active program.

I installed the program, changed the .ini file to point to my videos and launched the .bat. TiVo then lets me find the videos okay, but when I press PLAY I get an error x0ffff. Looking at the .bat window I get the following message is when I start StreamBaby:

Initializing StreamBaby v20111203-2132...
12/27/11 15:56:04 FFmpegJavaVideoModule: Unable to load FFmpeg native libraries
12/27/11 15:56:04 Listener: added factory
12/27/11 15:56:04 Main: streambaby ready & listening.

Is the message about not loading the FFmpeg native libraries the problem? If so, how do I fix this?
