Re: Kweb Suite (Minimal Kiosk Browser, omxplayerGUI)

Wed Jul 11, 2018 7:20 pm

omxplayerGUI seems to ignore the sound output settings on the pi...
I have set audio to be redirected to my attached speaker via 3.5mm jack but the sound still comes out of the TV..
is there a way for omxplayer to honour the sound out settings on the pi?

for omxplayer I can use the below:
omxplayer -o alsa <stream>

Is there a way I can do the same with omxplayergui? In the below string format perhaps

http://localhost:9192/play?url=http://m ... mxoptions=

thanks!

Yes, you can add the same options. You can also set them as default options on the settings page (in different places).

Hi, I Tried to install the kweb suite using the commands on page 1.

Trying ./debinstall I get the messagre "gdebi-core not found".

Trying to use "sudo apt-get install gdebi-core" gives me a "package gdebi-core cannot be found"

How do I get this gdebi-core to my raspi? (Raspbian)

Thanks

It's in the repository both for Jessie and Stretch. I just checked it.
Perhaps you have a problem with a mirror.

Obviously your complete package management system is broken. Try the following first:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
As this is not related to kweb at all, it might be better to open a new thread for your problem.

Update/Upgrad helped, thanks. Kweb is running now.

One quewstion: I was wondering if kweb suite could also play the videos from www.be-at.tv?

Is there any chance to make kweb play these videos?

Currently not. There's no youtube-dl module which supports it.

I've installed Kweb 1.7.9.8 onto my Pi 3 B+. I launch it with "kweb -J" and then I go to my url. I have my page setup to auto refresh every min. It refreshes a few times & then kweb crashes/shuts down. This is all I see at the terminal. To be far, Chromium also crashes, so maybe I'm doing something wrong in my Javascript refresh code. Any suggestions...?

The cairo (graphics) backend is crashing, which is used by both webkit (kweb) and chromium.
I have no idea about the cause.

You should be using Raspbian Stretch as the Operating System, it has been current for 12 months now, whilst Jessie is end of life:

Update September, 22, 2017: Version 1.7.9.8 for Stretch is now available

It depends on which OS you did install using noobs. Running
cat /etc/os-release
will tell you which OS version you did install.

Hi

I'm having a problem with the last version of kweb for raspbian stretch.

On previous versions, launching Kweb with kweb3 command, HTML5 videos (without OMXPlayer) used to work without major issues, now in the last version HTML5 videos are not longer working.

Is there any configuration to solve this issue?

Greetings!

Development of the HW accelerated GTK+3-webkit engine (used by epiphany and kweb3) has been discontinued by the Foundation and it is not available on Stretch any more. That's also the reason that there is no kweb3 any more.
Software video decoding should work though, as long as the screen area of the video is not too large (up to 480p perhaps).

reading back it was mentioned that if omxplayer plays the link the omxplayergui will play it
I have a link to my stream that omxplayer plays fine but omxplayergui thinks about playing it then just doesn't

How can I begin troubleshooting this?

I'm using
omxplayer -o local "http://dew34453x.stackpathcdn.com/<name ... ylist.m3u8"

from the terminal and it plays great I see a full screen and everything
but trying the same link using omxplayergui it doesnt play anything I see the controls appearing at the bottom then disappearing
using the below from the chromium browser

http://localhost:9192/play?url=http://d ... ylist.m3u8

bgstart server has been started as well

not sure how else to describe this really except the exact same link doesnt work in omxplayergui

I think it could be something to do with port 8080 ? I have tried playing on urls with port 8080 and they also don't play

Without having access to the stream it's difficult for me to check what's happening.
Did you try
