Streaming Video in Chromium <SOLVED>
« on: April 23, 2014, 07:47:45 am »
Good Day to all,
I'm having issues with streaming my local news on my Peppermint 4 laptop.  :(
Spoiler (click here to view / hide)
[close]
The web URL for the stream is http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/category/237218/live-video
They use LIVESTREAM for live video, youtube plays fine. I'm using Chromium for a browser but have seem the same results in Firefox as well.
This is a fresh and updated install. I have had same results with other PM4 installs on other machines. The stream will run fine for 5-10 seconds and then it just starts buffering forever.
TYIA for your ideas or suggestions

Try the fix for gecko-mediaplayer documented on the old forum .. here:

Also, make sure you have both ubuntu-restricted-extras and lubuntu-restricted-extras installed.

PCNetSpec, thanks for the quick response. I'll check those  things and post back.
Mac, I like the way the threads flow with the spoiler too.

Followed the uninstall, clean, reinstall instructions and installed the extras. No change  :(
Any other ideas?

Does the feed play if you click on the picture (to pause it) then click on it again (to play) ?

ie. does it play for a while, then stall again ?

Yes, it will restart, play about 10 seconds and then stall out again.

This appears to be a flashplayer issue,it works in Chrome, and even in Chromium if you have it using Chrome's pepperflash.

do you know how to make Chromium use pepperflash ?

I'll have a go with these instructions (http://peppermintos.net/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=6176) I found on the old forum. They were written by some PCNoSleep (or something like that) guy.  ;D
I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again for all that you do for Peppermint and the LINUX world in general.

Tried it with a replayed "live" stream and it works well. I'll test it later on with a true live stream but I am confident that this is the cure so I'll mark it solved.
Cheers  :)
