Does anyone know how to make Streambaby list the metadata information (including Cover art) of Movies/TV shows ?

I know I've seen a screenshot of the description of the movie, actor/s and a movie poster on the screen where you hit "Start/Play from beginning".

Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated. I have alot of files but, it'll be handy to know what each one is without going to my PC and doing an imdb lookup.

See these changelog notes. I have been able to get txt and html to work but for some reason not jpg. HTML is the nicest since you can have the images, title and description just the way you want them.

Gacch...probably was a mistake posting this just before the July 4 holiday! Anyhow, can I provide any additional info or get thoughts on why the Streambaby volume keeps dropping?

Thanks!

I'm running the latest PyTivoX 1.3b5 and Leopard 10.5.7. I've been having this problem though for many versions of Streambaby. Yoav thought that the Broken Pipe error could be relevant, but I'm not sure where to go from here.

Thanks!

Are you running streambaby through Galleon like I am? Per Keary, I did some testing and found that if I run svn-239 outside of Galleon, it works just fine. The same MP4s will through the 0xffffff error if streambaby is running inside of Galleon.

As below, I've tried the video.avi and video.avi.txt and video.txt as the metadata file but, nothing is displayed (housed in the same directory as the video) Also tried .html extensions.
What am I doing wrong?


excert from streambaby changes log:
# Metadata is looked for in the form "filename.mpg.xxx" where xxx the metadata extension.
# Metadata is looked for in the same directory of the video file, or in a subdirectory of the directory where the main file is called .meta
# Metadata supported:
# .txt files- Either a pyTivo metadata file or a standard txt file (autodetected)
# .html
# .xml
# .gif, .png, .jpg: Use as straight images. New config property info.preserveaspect=true to control if img is allowed to be stretched
# Metadata is transformed using XSL into either straight txt or html (either is OK)

Update, I got the video.avi.txt to work OK. Just can't get the pictures to work. Tried jpg, gif, png. Also XML doesn't work either.

I just quickly tried a jpg and it seemed to work OK. (I wasn't sure since I hadn't actually tried it since I first implemented it.)

The steps I took were:
1. Created video file called "test.mp4"
2. Created a jpg in same directory called "test.mp4.jpg"
3. Ran streambaby, selected the directory, and then selected "test.mp4"
4. Streambaby brought up the play/quality/etc screen with the JPG image at the top.

As far as XML, it need to be a "TiVo" format XML extracted from a .TiVo file. Most applications don't extract this file directly, they convert it to a pyTivo .txt file. (Which is a specially formatted txt file) Streambaby supports other XML formats only if you create a xslt for it in the streambaby stylesheets directory. (Which is complicated)

Although there are applications out there to create pyTivo metadata files (pyTivo .txt files) out there, I haven't used them so you may have to google a bit.

You can manually create a pyTivo .txt file by creating a text file like the following:

video.mp4.txt:
Code:
title : Title of Movie
description : This is a movie about something really cool
image : images/video_cover.jpg
The image tag is a special tag that I don't think any applications except streambaby supports. The path can be either absolute (like c:\images\cover.jpg) or it is relative to the directory the .txt file is in.

The third option would be to create HTML files. This is completely free format, so you can do whatever you want but below is a simple example
video.mp4.html:
Code:
<html>
<body>
<h1>Movie name</h1>
<font size="4" color="#ffffff">This is a really good movie</font>
<img src="video.mp4.jpg"/>
</body>
</html>
The same path rules as above stand for the img tag in the above example.

Hope this helps.

Edit: Added spaces between key/value and the colon in the pytivo metadata example.

Sorry Kupe, I was hoping someone else who may be having similar problems would chime in. I did read the thread over in pyTivoX to see if there were any clues in that discussion.

Just to make sure I understand, the volume drops "quickly" (i.e. play a movie, wait a couple of minutes and streambaby disapears from the showcase menu)

I really have no idea-- If it was dropping the connection say after a few hours, I would think maybe something was wrong the jmdns code (the code that alerts the tivo of running HME applications) running on the Mac (but still wouldn't have any good ideas ;-).

If it drops quicker I am really surprised, because in most cases because streambaby doesn't "close" the jmdns connection even when it quits (due to some bugs in the jmdns). streambaby usually hangs around in the "showcases" menu for longer than should.

I've got an Australian TiVo (HD equivilent?) and for the last month or so, I've been getting random crashes when streaming video. This includes video files that previously stream perfectly.

I haven't changed any settings on my end.

For example, my last streaming video. A 350MB Xvid avi (640x368).

During the total video play time of 58m StreamBaby crashed 4 times:
  1. @ 9m with error "Can't Run. An error occurred while running the application. The application closed during a read (0x50006). Press select to continue." Restarting the video, StreamBaby resumes approximately 2 minutes before the time it crashed.
  2. @ 28m. No error message. TiVo just went straight to live TV. Again restart streambaby and the video started streaming approximately 2-3 minutes before the crash.
  3. @ 49m. "Can't Run. An error occurred while running the application. The application closed during a write (0xffff). Press select to continue."
  4. @ 57m. Exact repeat of 3rd error message.
StreamBaby's consol output when the above happened:

I'm running 0.27 of Streambaby on WinXP Pro SP3, NOT running as a service. I've tried going back to 0.25 but problem persisted. I also tried reinstalling 0.27, as well as R239.

My StreamBaby.ini:
#
# ./streambaby --help for more configuration file options
#

dir.1=E:\Media\Movies
dir.1.name=Movies
dir.2=E:\Media\TV
dir.2.name=TV

# Ip address to bind to
# most people don't need to change this.
ip=192.168.1.3
# port to use
port=7290

I've tried searching and tried browsing through this thread but with 45+ pages is just too hard to find something specific that doesn't come up with a search.

Does anybody have an init script to automatically start streambaby when Linux (Fedora 10 if it matters) boots?

Thanks...Scott

I can't give specific instructions for Fedora, but there are scripts in
extra/service/linux32 (or linux64 depending on your architecture) to start/stop streambaby.

So for example if Fedora supports something like rc.local (a script that linux usually runs on startup) you could add a line in it like the following to start streambaby:

/path/to/streambaby/extra/service/linux32/streambaby start

And it will start up streambaby as a background daemon.

Sorry for the delay in replying on this - I tried the test.mp4 as suggested and still no go. None of my mp4 would play. I then added:

mp4module.interleave=false

to my streambaby.ini and voila.. all the mp4 that would not play before (incl. test.mp4) played fine. This is using 0.25, 0.27 and svn-239.

EDIT: spoke too soon.. works fine with streambaby standalone - does not work running streambaby through galleon.

For testing your streambaby setup it's also useful to try out a known good to stream H.264 clip such as this one. (That particular one has AAC audio).
There is another test H.264 clip with oddball resolution and AC3 audio here.

Thanks for pointing those out. I had completely missed them. Everything's all set up now for autostart at boot time.

Doesn't anyone have any ideas on my issue? (which I'd link to, but am not allowed - see post #1391)

This is driving me nuts. EVERY video I try to stream crashes streambaby. And it's not just once per video, but multiple times. What's most frustrating it that Streambaby used to work perfectly and I haven't changed anything on my end.

I've gone from considering getting another TiVo to thinking of getting rid of my TiVo altogether for a different brand DVR.

I've tried different versions of streamababy. Uninstalling, reinstalling. Reinstalling Java. Letting the whole video complete caching before playing. I've checked and rechecked my ini file. Nothing helps.

Just a guess but it sounds like maybe your TiVo is dropping the network connection? I'm all wireless but have never had streambaby dump in the middle of playback.

Would you really take back your TiVo just because streambaby doesn't work? I mean, streambaby is a great third-party addition, but it's lack of working wouldn't make me dump TiVo altogether (no offense to keary, of course!).

I suppose it's possible. But it only seems to effect Streambaby, as my TiVo can still transfer files via TiVo Desktop, stream podcasts, download Blockbuster movies or even restart StreamBaby immediately after a crash in the time it takes me to navigate the menus to do so. IE if it is a network issue, it's not a lengthy one. Maybe the other apps have some type of error handling that invisibly compensates while StreamBaby just throws its hands up and gives up?

However I've also tested letting the entire media file cache to TiVo, ie the green download bar to completely fill, before starting playback, and it still crashes.

I also don't know if the errors "during a read" or "during a write" refer to reading and writing from the PC over the network, or TiVo's local hard disk.

Well, I've got an Australian TiVo, so it only works with "Free To Air" channels (basically 5 channels). I generally end up watching about 3:1 digital media from my PC vs FTA TV in a week. So my TiVo is basically a media streamer that also records FTA.

I have a backup media streamer, a Dlink 320, that I have to swap component and optical audio cables between it and the TiVo due to limited inputs on my TV. Basically it's a huge hassle to swap between them. The Dlink isn't as easy to use as Streambaby, and it doesn't display an as smooth picture.

When I got Streambaby initially, it turned my TiVo into a holy-grail all-in-one easy to use golden child. I wanted to get one for every TV in the house. I guess now that it's got issues, my level of satisfaction had further to fall.

I had the same problem with Vista 64. You need to point streambaby to a 32bit version of Java on your system. Just add the full path for a 32 bit version of java in the streambaby.bat file.

merge directory?

Just got my Tivo HD in this week and found this bit of awesomeness via Google. Thanks for the work keary (and any other contributors). Admitted novice here, but very good at following instructions.

Tried to find an answer to this to no avail...admitedly did not hard search through all 48 pages of this thread, but did drill down to 4 pages by searching for "directory". I'm coming from a perspective of using Xbox Media Center and using SB on a Vista machine. In XBMC, I am able to add multiple directories abd they all show up under one "master" view. Trying to do the same with SB, as I have a couple of different hard drives storing my media. On XBMC, if I point to "drive A" and "drive B", both contents will show up under "Videos" merged and sorted almost as if they are one large drive. Is there a syntax I would use in the SB.ini to get the same results. Currently I have the following (for example):

dir.1=C:\Videos
dir.1.name=Videos

dir.2=M:\Test
dir.2.name=External Drive

Which results in 2 listings on the Tivo end. I'd like both those directories to merge on the back end so when we navigate to the SB "interface" on the Tivo it's just one large file list. I've tried various methods with no positive results, such as this:

dir.1=C:\Videos,M:\Test
dir.1.name=Videos

Granted, I don't "know" what I'm doing here, but can follow the directions of the experts very well and catch on from there. Thanks for any help.

When I try to run this program I get the following message in the cmd window:
'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Exited.
Press any key to continue...

I do have Java installed....what's the problem? How can I troubleshoot.

You need to have java.exe in your path. Locate java.exe and add that directory to your PATH environment variable. (Right click "My Computer"->Properties->Advanced-Environment Variables.)

Unfortunately as far as I know there is no way to merge these into one directory using just Streambaby. At the moment you can point different folders and they show up each separately.

I do know there are tools for creating virtual network shares. I do not know if any of those allow you to merge two directories into one share, but that is the direction you should look into.

Good luck,

Rick

I've just created a tiny Windows executable (as an alternative the the batch file, or the service) which launches streambaby and also places a streambaby icon in the notification area. The benefit of using this tiny executable instead of a batch file is that it avoids taskbar clutter and an annoyingly visible Windows CMD box. (Yes, I could simply run streambaby as a service, but I generally prefer applications over services except for OS related processes.)

Anyhow, it can be downloaded here (34kb, includes full source code): www[dot]angusj[dot]com/streambaby.zip
(Apologies for the mangled URL, I can't post proper links yet as this is my first post.)

I think I posted this in the wrong thread, moving it here:

Now I put the path "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe". I also tried "C:\Program Files(x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" into the Streambaby.bat file and it displays all the usage info for java and the options for usage so I must have done something wrong. It displays all the usage info and then Streambaby starts ok but still gives me the error "FFmpegJavaVideoModule: Unable to load FFmpeg native libraries". The rest seems ok it says Listener: added factory and then Main: streambaby ready & listening. Please realize that there is no urgency for a response on this because it works fine. It is just curiosity that has got me on this. Thank-you.

Here is my streambaby.bat:
@echo off
set LAUNCHDIR="%CD%"
pushd "%~dp0\native"
"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe"
java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Xmx256m -Xmx256m -jar "%~dp0/jbin/streambaby.jar" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8
echo Exited.
pause
popd

Almost there. You're running java twice. Your batch file should read something like:

@echo off
set LAUNCHDIR="%CD%"
pushd "%~dp0\native"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Xmx256m -Xmx256m -jar "%~dp0/jbin/streambaby.jar" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8
echo Exited.
pause
popd

maybe I should just leave well enough alone

Alright that got rid of the usage info but still getting this error "FFmpegJavaVideoModule: Unable to load FFmpeg native libraries". I think this was mentioned before in the forums. Like I say at least it works fine. But thank-you. It got rid of the java usage info. Maybe I have to try a different java version? Let me know if anybody has any ideas on that. But I am happy that it works.

I'm pretty sure you can ignore it.
