You can use wget over ssh to open an HTTP connection and output stream data, then mplayer on the local machine to play it. ssh <user>@<host> "wget <stream> -O -" | mplayer -cache 512 - The subtleties: wget's -O (capital letter oh) option sets its output file; - (dash) implies stdout. mplayer's -cache option causes a configurable amount ...

You can use ssh's -L flag to create a tunnel from your system to a remote: ssh -L <localport>:<streamhost>:<streamport> <user>@<remote> You can then connect to your end of the tunnel with mplayer as you would otherwise: mplayer localhost:<localport>

If you are running Arch Linux I suppose you know how to install a rubygem. Take a look at https://rubygems.org/gems/airstream - a simple command-line-tool you can use to send remote and local image and video files to your apple-tv (tested with generation 3). If you need any help leave a comment on http://blog.lipautz.org/linux-and-apple-tv/.

You can set up a SOCKS proxy: ssh -D localhost:8080 user@remotehost mplayer http_proxy://localhost:8080/http://stream You can use tell any other application, such as your web browser, to use this proxy too.

Here are some suggestions: iTunes alternatives - linux I personally use Rhythmbox

I found this tool that matches my need exactly, called logtop. According to the documentation: logtop displays real-time count of strings received in standard input. Examples Is useful for some cases, like getting the IP flooding your server: $ tail -f /var/log/apache2/access.log | cut -d' ' -f1 | logtop Or the top buzzing article of your blog: $ ...

sshfs is a wonderful tool for cases like this. It hides many a firewall and allows you to use whatever player you choose (though mplayer is still a nice choice). sudo apt-get install sshfs # your favorite packager here sshfs me@mydomain.org:/home/arthur/Music ~/Music I also run Subsonic listening to port 4040 on localhost and then ssh-tunnel home with ...

The Ubuntu Screencast Team uses gtk-recordmydesktop.

Without experience with screencasts, this is the way to search the repository for keywords like this: apt-cache search screencast byzanz - Small screencast creator gtk-recordmydesktop - Graphical frontend for recordmydesktop istanbul - Desktop session recorder producing Ogg Theora video The result is from xUbuntu 9.10 - your result may vary; give it a ...

I've read about using ffmpeg for screengrabbing before. Check out ffmpeg with X11 grabbing + ffserver. There may be some progressive deterioration in A/V syncing though.

I like Clementine, it's a good clone of what Amarok 1.x used to be like before they (IMO) messed it up with the version 2.x release. On a more general note, pretty nearly anything is better than iTunes - Apple is usually excellent with user-interface design, but that program is an unusable abomination. I'd think "WTF were they thinking?" except that it's ...

For copying stuff into your iPod, use gtkpod, works for my iPod Shuffle at least For streaming, and support of spotify / last.fm etc., use clementine.

For simply playing music, I've never been able to go past Amarok. It's also possible to sync your iPod using it.

Sure. You are looking for tee not fork(): ps -ef | tee file | grep http

Try mplayer, it's usually the audio and video player that supports the widest range of formats. If you have a supposedly RTSP source which is actually an HTTP URL, first retrieve the contents of the URL; you'll get a file containing just another URL, this time rtsp:// (sometimes you get another HTTP URL that you need to follow too). Pass the rtsp:// URL to ...

One clunky solution would be to use virtualbox to emulate a lightweight xp install which would host the itunes software. Create a samba share of your media files on the linux box and map that share to a network drive within the virtual pc, then add that mapped drive to the itunes library on the virtual machine. Its not an elegant solution but at least it ...

One workaround: Setup Apache on the Linux box to serve up the media files and links. (I probably went a bit overboard here and created a PHP app that serves files along with metadata, album art/DVD covers etc as a web page. You wouldn't need to do that to just prove the concept.) Go to the new webpage on an iPad/iPhones(s) and browse and select music or ...

Google Hangout supports screen sharing, cross platform and only needs a browser plugin.

VLC has a built-in desktop stream. I don't recall if it does audio too, howerver. If you need something quick you can try Big Blue Button's VMware image. It sets up a server that can stream desktop, video, audio, and whiteboard.

You can try using pulseaudio sound server daemon in the raspberry pi and configuring pulseaudio client with the internal network ip of the server in the configuration. For example if you are using Debian and raspbian. In raspbian: echo "snd_bcm2835" > /etc/modules /* load the sound module \*/ apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-module-zeroconf ...

Mplayer should be able to play WMA radio. It's possible to set up firefox to direct mms:// URIs to mplayer by setting the firefox configuration setting "network.protocol-handler.app.mms" to /usr/bin/mplayer (or whatever the path is for mplayer).

Look up DLNA. I don't know what packages on OpenSUSE would provide it, but it's your best bet. Under Ubuntu, DLNA is provided by the package Rygel (although there is a plug in for Rhythmbox called Coherence).

Use WebcamStudio for GNU/Linux. (Reference: Live screencasting to ustream) As their website says, WebcamStudio For GNU/Linux creates a virtual webcam that can mix several video sources together and can be used for live broadcasting over Bambuser, UStream or Stickam View the demo here.

Try ffmpeg with something like this: ffmpeg -vcodec mpeg4 -r 10 -g 300 -vd x11:0,0 -s 1280x1024 http://localhost:8090/feed1.ffm If it's not working right with the exact settings from the example, see the ffmpeg webpage and documentation for more details: ffmpeg.org

You can use tee and process substitution >(...) for this: zcat my_data_file.gz | # Count number of lines in stream tee >(wc -l > /tmp/linecount) | # Further processing process_data.py Note that pipes can be used for line continuation and that comments may be interspersed between commands, a nice feature when building complicated pipelines.

If you look at this page they show this technique of using ffmpeg to do the slicing and then having it forward it to the ffserver: $ ffmpeg \ -f v4l2 -s 320x240 -r 25 -i /dev/video0 \ -f alsa -ac 1 -i hw:0 \ http://localhost:8090/feed1.ffm The above command is doing the following: The first part -f v4l2 -s 320x240 -r 25 -i /dev/video0 ...

I found the solution searching on web, especially reading this page. For transmit video: avconv -i video.mov -c:v libx264 -f mpegts udp://224.0.0.100:1234 From any client in the lan: omxplayer udp://224.0.0.100:1234 The trick is to trasmit to the multicast group with the ip range: . from 224.0.0.0 . to 239.255.255.255 '1234' is the port used to ...

Actually I've succeed with streaming of h264 video with ffmpeg. I was able to do this with help from ffmpeg-user list, especially from Carl Eugen Hoyos, author of this patch: diff --git a/libavdevice/v4l2.c b/libavdevice/v4l2.c index cd6aeb2..c3f813d 100644 --- a/libavdevice/v4l2.c +++ b/libavdevice/v4l2.c @@ -150,6 +150,7 @@ static struct fmt_map ...

I will explain how to stream h264 using gstreamer. First, you need Linux kernel 3.2 or later to have "H264 pixel format" supported in the v4l2 drivers. Use v4l2-ctl to check that you have proper H.264 support for the camera: # v4l2-ctl --list-formats # v4l2-ctl --list-formats-ext Next, you will need video4linux libraries and utilities. These include: ...
