Hey guys,

Sorry if this is in this thread, I searched and didn't see it.

How does streambaby look at Metadata?

All of my movies have metadata provided by Media Center Master (which is a great program by the way) that I use primarily on my HTPC. Does the tivo see metadata inside the container (in this case MKV) or does it see metadata stored outside the container (in the folder with the MKV)? I just got my Tivo and Comcast is coming tomorrow to hook up the card but I wanted to play with this tonight and was curious about this.

Thanks!

Ted

I beleive the only container that provides metadata to tivo is the TIVO container. What you need to do with MPG or MP4 files is provide a text file with the exact same name as the media file plus a .txt extension.

So if you've got a media file called my_recording.mp4, you need to provide a file called my_recording.mp4.txt.

Thanks for the info. Probably won't be doing that manually for all of them so I'll have to just make do with the title!

What I'm saying is since we mac users like the "install and run" option, a lot of people simply won't even try the app if it requires a bunch of external installs first...

The good news: It (seems to) run fine with java 1.6 on a mac. So far it seems to be working perfectly with the videos I've tried.. yay.

If it can be made to work under 1.5, would you mind it I include it as a streamer option for pyTivoX (thereby rendering the program name misleading -- oh well). That way people can configure it with a gui, and install it with one click...?

You don't install it on your TiVo ... you run it on a PC (or Mac) and then your TiVo connects to it. Best place to start is the getting started document on the wiki and then come back and ask specific questions.

Welcome to the forum!

Ok, sorry. It was just your generic post activity looked like someone trying to get up to the number of posts where they are allowed to post links.

I use a program called MetaGenerator that takes away most of the pain.

Galleon has an app that will show you your desktop on your TiVo, but you can't interact with it or control it. I'm not aware of any app for the TiVo that will let you do that.

There are technical differences, but the big one is that streambaby allows you to stream your stored videos to your TiVo. With pyTivo, you are transferring a copy of the video onto your TiVo. You can still play it while it's transferring with pyTivo, but you can't fast-forward ahead like you can with streambaby.

I run them both (and Galleon).

IIRC, Galleon and streambaby use the same port by default (7288). If you go into streambaby.ini you can change the default so they can run side by side.

could you pls tell me which port should i use...currently my ini file looks like this

#dir.2.name=External Drive
# Ip address to bind to
# most people don't need to change this.
#ip=192.168.1.37
# port to use
#port=7290

Could you also pls let me know why Galleon wasnt able to recognise my TiVo..was it because Streambaby was running? Thx much for your help

For most apps the port number is immaterial as long as it's unique. There are some reserved port numbers, butthe main thing is to make sure they are unique.

Windracer says that the default port for Galleon is 7288, and since I have very little experience with this app, I just accept that as true. What you are showing, though, looks like a bunch of comments to me - at least that's how I interpret the '#' characters. If I am right, then the line '#port=7290' is actually a comment doing nothing, and you end up using the default of 7288.

Try removing the '#' character and restart the process. It should come up on 7290 and hopefully you'll be OK.

Most likely. I run streambaby on port 7289. Just uncomment that line in your .ini file by removing the # and them change the port number accordingly. You should then be able to run both together.

Looks like it is not specifically possible, but this work around does the trick for me:

Code:
dir.1=c:\MensMovies
dir.1.name=Mens Movies
dir.1.password=men
dir.2=c:\WomensMovies
dir.2.name=Womens Movies
dir.2.password=women
dir.3=c:\MoviesWeAllLike
dir.3.name=Movies for all
dir.3.password=men,women

Now when connect to streambaby from TiVo #1 it will ask for a password and enter "men". This will allow that tivo to access dir.1 & dir.3. The password will be remembered when you disconnect, so it won't ask again when TiVo #1 reconnects.

Do the same with TiVo #2, but enter "women" as the password and it will let you access dir.2 and dir.3

You can press the "clear" button from (I believe...) from the initial directory selection menu of streambaby and it will let you enter a new password.

Note: dir.3.password=men,women does not really need to be set, as if you leave out that line dir.3 will be accessible to anyone regardless of the password. However, since there is at least one directory that does not require a password when you first connected to streambaby it wouldn't prompt for a password, and you would just see dir.3. You could then press "clear" which would allow you to enter either "men" or "women" as the password.

I hope this all makes sense... I think the important things to remember is that:
1. clear from the main streambaby directory menu brings you to the password screen. (If you don't go there automatically)
2. Streambaby remembers the last password a particular TiVo (by serial number) used, and defaults to using it again the next time you connect.

Hey Guys,
There used to be an article which showed you step by step how to set up streambaby on an HP server. It was hosted on drop.io but they have been shut down. I was wondering if anybody had it and could send it to me, or send me a link to its location. Id really appreciate it, as it was the only one which was step by step for my exact system. Thanks!

MP4 files with Metadata not playable

Has anyone else had issues with MP4 files that have Image/Description metadata added?

I have many MP4s that used to be completely playable. However I got sick of using the TXT files to maintain metadata as my other devices do not use the pyTivo format.

I ran across a tool called MetaX that easily allows you to place Metadata into the MP4 files. Streambaby reads this data just fine and properly shows the information and image in the selection screen. Great.

However any show that has this metadata in it fails to stream. It just sits displaying zero minutes. If I skip it will skip to the X minute mark and again just sit there like no data is being streamed to the tivo.

Now I know that these files worked prior to having Metadata. Also what is weird is that they also USED to work even with metadata until just recently. Neither of my TiVoHDs can play these files. Other MP4 files that do not have metadata work fine now.

Here is the Debug log from one of these files..

Just in case anyone else is looking for how to install streambaby (or pyTivo) on a Windows Home Server (WHS), http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...40#post8291440

I seem to be stuck with my Steambaby install on my linux box. It seems to run fine from the log file as well as the status, but it never shows up under MP&S.

I've disabled IPv6 on the 2 Vista PC's on the same network - no help. I've checked and the linux box has no firewall.

I know HME works since I have Harmonium and it works fine. Any ideas?

I have many MP4s that used to be completely playable. However I got sick of using the TXT files to maintain metadata as my other devices do not use the pyTivo format.

I ran across a tool called MetaX that easily allows you to place Metadata into the MP4 files. Streambaby reads this data just fine and properly shows the information and image in the selection screen. Great.

However any show that has this metadata in it fails to stream. It just sits displaying zero minutes. If I skip it will skip to the X minute mark and again just sit there like no data is being streamed to the tivo.
.........
I think a likely explanation for this is that after MetaX inserts the metadata, the file is no longer "optimized for http streaming". This optimization has something to do with the location of the "moov" atom. Anyway, MetaX is based on the mp4v2 library, which I have experimented with. I found that after it inserted tags, the files were no longer "optimized" and I had to run the mp4v2 function that performs that optimization before the files would stream to TiVo. Note that this optimization isn't required just to play the videos on your PC --just for streaming.

Now I don't know if Dan Hinsley (author of MetaX for Windows) programmed MetaX to perform this optimization or not. I would suggest you simply contact him **here** and ask -- he seems to be pretty friendly.

Optimizing for HTTP streaming is done automatically by VideoReDo when it creates a mpeg4 file and it is done with the -O option in HandBrake. I think you can do it using either mp4box or mp4creator. Also, I've found that when you use atomicParsley to insert mp4 metadata, it does NOT disturb the http streaming optimization -- if it was there to begin with. (Or maybe it performs the optimization step automatically after it inserts the tags.) You can find all these programs I've mentioned via Googling.

Hmm MetaX is doing worse than that.. It makes the video invalid as far as MP4box is concerned, not on all the MP4s but most it seems..

Damn, it was a really nice way to easily get images and metadata on the MP4s. Now I have to "quick stream fix" all the damaged MP4s to strip the bad data on over 300 movies.. UGG.

I am a big fan of Streambaby for the direct streaming feature.

I now push my video to TiVo faster using my router USB.

No need for computer---Recently I purchased the Netgear Dual Band Router and it is DLNA-certified—stream videos, photos, and music to your HDTV

WNDR3700 is ReadyDLNA, which means any media files in the USB hard drive connected to the USB port of the WNDR3700 can now be viewed and played in any UPnP

Assuming VRD can read your "damaged" files, VAP (link in signature) can automate VRD QSF's. Also, it will read metadata from input files (using AtomicParsley for MPEG4 files) and will insert the metadata in the output file using AP. However any artwork (images) will be lost and AP doesn't do "long description", which may be what ffmpeg was calling "synopsis".

If you have questions about VAP, please post in the VRD VAP sub-forum or in a new thread here, so as not to clutter up this thread.
