  Not full screen and no audio
Posted by: rmeskill - 04-03-2016, 11:14 PM - Forum: General - Replies (4)

Hello-I've managed to get blissflixx setup, but I have two issues:

1) I can't ever get true full-screen. I've tried both CLI and GUI boot options for Raspberry Pi, but I always end up with the video only taking up 95% of the screen, with lines of the screen behind above and below. It's not world-ending, just annoying-any thoughts on how to get rid of that?
2) I don't have audio. I've forced audio out the HDMI port via raspi-config, but no dice-don't get audio for videos. This is world-ending, at least for using Blissflixx...

To be fair, when I boot into a command prompt, the background screen fades away soon enough, so it's only annoying for the first few minutes, but still no audio...

  Load subtitles by url
Posted by: 0bscur3 - 03-29-2016, 03:42 AM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (1)

First, sorry for my bad english. Second, MrBliss, BlissFlixx is AMAZING. I already tried multiple solutions but there is not any that comes close to the power of BlissFlixx. I want to create a little windows app that create an entry on explorer context menu, "Play on BlissFlixx". The app will create a http server and pass the video url like this:

http://rasberry_pi_ip/api/playr?fn=play&data={"url":"https://my_machine_ip/myvideo.mp4","title":"some title"}

Now, I have some videos that already have subtitles on the same folder. Is it possible to pass the srt file just like I can pass the video file? I tried to do like this:

http://rasberry_pi_ip/api/playr?fn=play&data={"url":"http://my_machine_ip/myvideo.mp4","subs":"http://my_machine_ip/myvideo.srt","title":"some title"}

but BlissFlixx got stuck on "Fetching Subtitles" (it probably was not expecting an url). Is this scenario possible already?

Again, thank you for your amazing work!

  Wifi Configurator
Posted by: SteveDee - 03-02-2016, 04:26 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

I've modified my BlissFlixx system to allow simple wifi configuration and to display the Pi IP address on the initial boot screen.

If this is of interest, take a look at my notes here: http://captainbodgit.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/blissflixx-wifi-config-user-information.html

  Video issue with TED Talks
Posted by: SteveDee - 02-28-2016, 08:53 PM - Forum: General - Replies (2)

We have been using BlissFlixx for a couple on months, mostly on BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and TED Talks. It all runs well, except that we get a curious problem with some TED Talks.

When we run a "talk" the TED intro screen is OK, but as the actual "talk" part of the video starts, we sometimes get apparent video corruption. Typically we may see a grey screen with a ghostly moving outline of the speaker. But the screen may sometimes be a colour (say pink) with a few flickering coloured pixels.

This state rarely lasts more than 10 or 20 seconds, but on Al Gores latest offering (http://www.ted.com/talks/al_gore_the_case_for_optimism_on_climate_change#t-15472) it goes on for about 30 seconds, then recovers and remains OK. If I play this video on one of our laptops it is absolutely fine.

We have never seen this problem on any other channel.

I'd be grateful if someone would try the link above on BlissFlixx to see if they have the same issue, or let me know if it's a known problem.

  Sometimes fails to run from start
Posted by: SteveDee - 01-08-2016, 01:37 PM - Forum: General - Replies (2)

I'm a new convert to BlissFlixx, its great!

But I sometimes get a problem when I boot my system (maybe 1 in 5 times) where the Pi reports the following:-

{date/time} BLISSFLIXX Starting...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/pi/blissflixx/blissflixx.py", line 47 in <module>
import api, pwd, grp
...and this message continues in a similar way referencing lines 1, 129, 71 & so on.

I just cold-boot again and its usually fine.

I've configured my Pi as per this post on my blog: http://captainbodgit.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/blissflixx-on-raspberrypi.html

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Looks like adding a delay to blissflixx.py may be a work-around...

from os import path
import sys, os
LIB_PATH = path.join(path.abspath(path.dirname(__file__)), "lib")
import locations, gitutils, cherrypy
import time
print ".............enforce a 10 second delay....."

# Do not allow running as root

I'll live with it/tune it for a while and see what happens.

  EZTV Error 500 When loading Popular

Error message when I load the Popular channel of EZTV. Anyone else having similar problems/ know the solution to fix this problem?

Here's the error output:

  Recall Audio Settings
Posted by: mr.blissLover - 09-28-2015, 09:14 AM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (3)

It'd be useful if a file or variable could store the volume setting the user has adjusted it to and apply the same volume level the next time omxplayer is launched.

Bob is playing a playlist of reddit videos and notices they are all playing through his speakers dangerously loud, Bob thus adjust the volume decibels using the Blissflixx server to level -12.0 db for the current video playing, the video plays at the appropriate volume of -12db that Bob has specified. Now the video is over and our good friend Bob selects the next video in his playlist, and his speakers get blown the fuck out because instead of playing the second video at -12db like Bob specified in the prior video, this second video is played at the default 0 db and so blow Bob's $4K speakers into a $4k static producing machine.

So in order to help all the Bobs in the world I think this would be a great and easy feature to work in.

  The 9/14/15 Update to fix error 500
Posted by: mr.blissLover - 09-15-2015, 01:49 AM - Forum: General - Replies (2)

Upon calling the kickass torrent channel, we are presented with an extended wait period to load the titles, and finally faced with a server side error:500 message. With further inspection it seems as though there was a minor change to the blissflixx.proxy that affects us with an error. By updating & restarting the server through the settings segment in the ugi of Blissflixx we can load the titles but are still presented with the server side error:500 message telling us that there is some kind of internal server side error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./blissflixx.py", line 93, in default
    ret = call(**datadict)
  File "/home/pi/blissflixx/lib/api/channels.py", line 176, in feed
    return installed.getChannel(chid).getFeed(idx)
  File "/home/pi/blissflixx/lib/api/channels.py", line 61, in getFeed
    return self.getPlayItems(self.module.feed(idx))
  File "/home/pi/blissflixx/plugins/bfch_kickass_torrents/__init__.py", line 31, in feed
    doc = get_doc(_FEEDLIST[idx]['url'], proxy=True)
  File "/home/pi/blissflixx/lib/chanutils/chanutils.py", line 71, in get_doc
    r = get(url, params=params, **kwargs)
  File "/home/pi/blissflixx/lib/chanutils/chanutils.py", line 42, in get
    raise Exception("Request : '" + url + "' returned: " + str(r.status_code))
Exception: Request : 'http://blissflixx-proxy1.appspot.com' returned: 500

Has anyone found a solution to this problem as it hinders development of the kickass channel as well as decrease the quality of the user experience when using blissflixx. Seeing that the last commit only affected the ythelper.py file I don't see how this error could have arose, also no DMCA takedown of kat so that has been ruled out, plus the videos load sometimes just the error message is still present on the ugi. 

 Any thoughts are appreciated, Thanks.
