I'm trying to stream content using Livestreamer from YouTube to VLC. However, the streaming starts but the video is frozen. I notice no audio is present as well. Any ideas what It could be? I tried the smallest resolution 144p and I get the same results as if I try at 1080p.

Hello,

What is the best/simplest way to create a customized tracklist to display when playing a CD?

My mother is a (young) 83 year-old who spends quite a bit of time driving in her car each week. She really enjoys listening to recorded talks but has exhausted her supply and is tech-UN-savvy. She's quite comfortable using the CD player in her car however, so I told her I would be happy to create some CDs containing talks from the public domain.

The talks download as MP3 files and we agreed that the simplest navigation scheme for her would be to have the tracklist display as follows:

    |    Track #    |    Speaker Name    |    Date    |    Venue    |    Title    |

I haven't created many CDs in that manner but it seems like downloaded files (or maybe all MP3 files) usually contain data which appears by default in the tracklist. If that is correct, and:

if I've got the data I want to use in five corresponding columns in an Excel spreadsheet, what is the best method or software for:
    1) overwriting the default data and
    2) creating a tracklist from my spreadsheet?


By the way, I've got VLC Media Player installed. Is that a good option?

Thanks

I'm trying to set up a Win10 PC to automatically play YouTube playlists - controlled by Windows Scheduler - un-attended. I've made a playlist in YouTube. This plays ok in a web browser.
 
I start VLC (at a specified time) from Windows Scheduler with the following command

"C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lH54eA ... pDcmwTO1el

VLC starts playing the first item in the YT playlist and then stops when it is finished. It never starts playing the next item in the list.
Haven't been able to figure out how to make VLC play the complete list. Any suggestions?

P.S.: Prefer setting up and maintain the playlist in YouTube interface because it is easier and more intuitive than creating a playlist in VLC.

Thanks

I have a site made on WordPress. I have inserted a video from the media gallery. The only issue is that it's a standard player and cannot edit controls or anything else. I have tried plugins but none cater my needs. Any suggestion on how to manipulate the code and make the video appear the way I want? For instance no controls and there's a black header and footer I wish to remove. Thanks for any suggestions.

I used Movie Captioner to export a .scc file to add to a DVD project in Encore. I've attached a screen shot of the properties data once I've done this. After I build and burn the DVD I test it in iDVD Player with the captions on and they do not show.  Anyone know why?

Dear Experts,
In Lightworks version 12 when I wanted to change the volume level of an audio track I could see a yellow horizontal line on the audio track.  If I right clicked on it I could create a node.  Raising or lowering this node would change the volume level.

I am not being forced to use Lightworks 14 and the yellow line is now light green.  I don't seem to have the ability to create nodes by right-clicking any more.

How do I restore this feature?
Best Wishes,
Phil Truscott

Within the next week or so, I need to setup a streaming video server to broadcast live video and audio to potentially thousands of viewers. I will only need to do this once. I will need to stream for about 1 to 2 hours. Can someone tell me my best, cost effective way to do this ?

Hey Guys -

I've got a simple question, please.  For the past couple of years, I've slowly but steadily been building a storage pool and ripping my peronsally owned media to digital copies.  The has resulted in what is currently a 30tb partition (comprised of 12 pooled SATA disks) which contains many movies, tv shows, misc videos, and music which is mostly in FLAC but some MP3.  

My Question
What I'm looking for is an application which would scan certain paths, identify this media, read metadata if it exists, then create a report of what my library contains including various statistics.  Examples of the current formatting of the media  is below:

Until now, I've used applications like Directory List & Print Pro or Karen's Directory Printer to list specific file types from certain paths, then copied the resulting data into an Excel spreadsheet.  While it resulted in close to what I'm looking for, it was a tedious process which obviously took more time depending on how much media I had and the numer of details I wanted.

So - any suggestions?  Thanks!

I have a .vmf file with a recording of a deceased loved one that I would like to be able to convert to an audio file that I can listen to.  This file is from an old Gateway computer with faxworks audio software.  I'm not much of a tech person but I've looked in many places and am not able to find a way to listen to this file.  In 12/2011 nukeypearce apparently was able to find a way to listen to the file but his link to a download has long expired.  Any help would be appreciated.

I want to create a video editor software for my graduation project. But I first need to learn about digital video principles, what are codecs, containers, formats , mono vs stereo , resolution , sound processing ....etc (to use ffmpeg / mlt framework properly and know what I'm doing and how they do that when I use them)
The software should be able to transcode , edit , add effects and most other functions that are found in professional video editors.
What kind of knowledge should I have ? what to read and what not to read?

I bought many books about this topic , but they are talking about irrelevant stuffs , like pal & ntsc for TV and cables , a lot of math ..etc

Please let me know about the topics I need to read , books to get , any online references
