Re: Watching live streams with the Pi, best way to do so?

So after using this MPV suite for a while, and it working fine for several months now , I am getting a message anytime I try to play something. [vo/rpi] Could not get DISPMANX objects. Given that error message, the odds are extremely high that you changed the Raspberry's default video driver to the...

Re: How to use OMXPlayer's 'next audio stream' playback option?

I'm visually impaired and sometimes I simply can't see typing or spelling error. As your online buddy DougieLawson once told me, you can press the [CTRL] and [+] keys to address your visual impairment. With each tap of the keys, the text will get bigger and easier to read. It's a nice feature, so y...

Re: How to use OMXPlayer's 'next audio stream' playback option?

omxplayer's "next audio stream" if for switching to other audio tracks inside a movie. Günter should have said "is", not if. If that had been a line of computer code, it would have generated a program-killing syntax error. He has a history of scrutinizing my every word with the sole intent of findi...

Re: GIANT UPDATE: Build FFmpeg and mpv – Automatically in 54 Minutes!

I've already told you that this isn't true. NOTE TO OTHER READERS: While discussing a totally unrelated topic — modifying my script for use on a Pi Zero — I failed to add the tiresome qualifier "among modern codecs in common use today". This created an irresistible "gotcha" opportunity for Günter a...

Excellent Tutorial . I have compiled and installed it on my RPI3. I want to compile and install on my RPi Zero W too. Could you guide me. The Pi Zero line of computers was never intended for compiling or using intense multimedia applications like FFmpeg or mpv. As a result, I have no interest in "s...

So far, I have only (indirectly) heard that our tech support guy thinks your program might not be as "user friendly" as GPicView.

It's inevitable that some will mistake a comprehensive answer for a "complicated" one.

I'll leave it to the good readers to decide which is which.

That shouldn't be too hard, given that you ignored almost all of the original poster's concerns.
