Can anyone tell me if these streams:mms://stream1.france24.yacast.net/f24_livefr
Are working with:
PS3 Media Server 1.60.0+git+mencoder35003-1 (I can't use 1.7 because I'm on Ubuntu Precise and - if I understand correctly - it's not available)
I had all this working great on Ubuntu Lucid, but had to upgrade. Now these streams don't work. I thought I read somewhere in the 90 preceding pages that these streams were having problems, but I can't remember where. Just hoping that someone can confirm/refute that these streams work, before I try a million things to get them working.
Also, can anyone tell me if they work on 1.7? If so, then maybe I'll wait until that is available for Ubuntu. Thanks much.
EDIT: more info. I have a Windows computer too (which I try to avoid), so I tried the windows version with 1.7, but I still couldn't get those streams to work.
Back on the Ubuntu machine, I saw one of chocolateboy's posts about switching the mencoder, and I saw that there are indeed to versions, in:
Tried them both and neither works. By the way, I get an error "Error consuming stream in spawned process: Bad file descriptor", but I think that the problem is not with the pipe, but that the mencoder command isn't working with these streams (but I'm just guessing).
I can stream those TED web videos, by the way, which also makes me think that it's a problem with teh mencoder command in pmsencoder particular to these streams, but - once again - I'm just guessing.
