Would installing this VLC package solve the Live stream issue...?

How should it be installed? There was not any script included... Just dropping the drawer did not seem to have effect.

Hi Roland,

You can install it with the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo rpm -i vlc-3.0.0-1.fc27.ppc64


I am not sure if it works because the default VLC doesn't work on the X5000 but you can try it if you like. Please note: This package is for Fedora 27. I am not sure if you can install it on Fedora 26.

Thanks,
Christian

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

My error, there was also a Fedora 26 version of it :-). But rpm found too many missing dependencies... There was also an installation recipe which uses dnf, and it demanded only one extra component which I was able find:

Code: Select all
#> sudo dnf install libavcodec.so.57 ffmpeg-libs-3.3.5-2.fc26.ppc64.rpm
#> dnf install libavcodec.so.57
#> dnf install vlc-3.0.0-1.fc26.ppc64.rpm
#> dnf install vlc


What is actually the difference between these two installation methods?

How could I test whether the VLC works? Should Firefox use it directly or do you need a Plugin? There was at least a diffrence in the behaviour of FireFox when trying to start a Stream, the error message was different... (before installing VLC: 'Browser not supporting Live Streaming', and after that a numerical error code...)
