VOMP General / MVP / Convert VOB for VOMP
« on: May 18, 2011, 12:54:11 »
Can anyone post directions on how to convert unencrypted VOB files to a format that can be viewed using VOMP?
I would prefer to view them as regular VDR recordings, but failing that using the VOMP Mediaplayer would be ok.


Vomp For Windows / Pre-alpha HDTV playback
« on: February 17, 2010, 13:16:25 »
I do not have a Windows system which I could volunteer to test HDTV playback but I am curious about this.

What are the software requirements at the moment? Does it work with XP, Vista or Windows7?

Depending on hardware support, how is hardware decoding and most importantly deinterlacing enabled?

VOMP General / MVP / New switch = boot problem
« on: November 03, 2009, 09:34:08 »
I recently changed my broadband adsl router which I also use a the main switch in my home ethernet network. Now my mvp will not boot the vompclient. I changed back to my old router/switch and it works fine. Both routers are set as the network dhcp server. If the vompserver is not running I can ping the mvp at its dhcp assigned address, but after it has loaded the dongle it disappears from the network. Ping gets no response and after some time even the mac address disappears from arp. The new router is a Thomson TG585.

Anybody know why one switch would work and another will not?

Here is my vompserver.log

VOMP General / MVP / Vomp source documentation
« on: July 28, 2009, 13:55:20 »
Can anyone give any hints on how a novice coder like me could begin to understand how vompserver works?
I pushed the vompserver source code through doxygen but it does not help much.

In addition is the communications protocol documented anywhere?

VOMP General / MVP / Error building vomp client
« on: April 21, 2008, 23:58:13 »
I am trying to use the makedevenv-5 script to build the latest Vomp client but I get this error:

I compared the file gcc-3.4.5-glibc-2.2.5/glibc-2.2.5/configure to the patch file and I cannot see why the patch does not work.


VOMP General / MVP / Request for formal release
« on: March 27, 2008, 10:34:35 »
Any chance of a formal release to coincide with the latest stable vdr 1.6.0?

I'm getting this error when building vompserver release 0.2.7 under the latest stable vdr 1.6.0

g++ -O2 -fPIC -Wall -Woverloaded-virtual -Werror -c -D_GNU_SOURCE -DPLUGIN_NAME_
I18N='"vompserver"' -I../../../include -I/include -o mvpreceiver.o mvpreceiver.c

e(cChannel*, int)’:
mvpreceiver.c:6: warning: the address of ‘NeedsDetachReceivers’ will always eval
uate as ‘true’
make[1]: *** [mvpreceiver.o] Error 1

How do I fix this?
Any chance of another stable release of vomp that builds nicely with the latest stable vdr 1.6.0?

Vomp For Windows / Viewing High Definition
« on: August 23, 2007, 09:36:22 »
Would I be right in saying that providing your Windows machine is set up correctly for watching high definition video (h.264 and vc1) then it is possible to watch high definition recordings and transmissions with VDR and Vomp for Windows?

Anyone tried this with the BBC high definition satellite (or Crystal Palace DVB-t) transmissions and care to share their experience?


VOMP General / MVP / VDR UPnP plugin viability
« on: May 01, 2007, 12:25:44 »
How close is the design of Vomp server to the UPnP AV version 2 specification?

How difficult would it be to convert Vomp server plugin to work with UPnP clients like the Netgear EVA8000 for example?
I refer to the EVA8000 in particular with an eye to future high definition capability.

Version 2 of UPnP AV adds record timer scheduling and EPG capability on top of the media streaming in version 1.


VOMP General / MVP / Ideal conditions for VDR and Vompserver
« on: March 13, 2007, 09:22:34 »
What are the ideal conditions under which to run VDR with Vompserver?

For example:
VDR Nice level?
Nice level relative to other apps, daemons and stuff running at the same time?
Pre-emptive kernel?
Kernel timer 250Hz? 1000Hz?
Quantity of system memory?
Processor speed? Mobile processor frequency scaling to save power?
Should the hard disk be defragmented on a regular basis?
Can using other applications on the same machine like web browsing, interfere with VDR operation?

Is it even worth worrying about?

I am running VDR with Vompserver for the front end and I am keen to get other peoples opinions on their optimum setup.

VOMP General / MVP / Feature request: EPG show timers
« on: February 06, 2007, 13:43:31 »
Would it be possible to highlight areas on the EPG display with a different colour to indicate what time and what channels timers are set to record?

This would be useful to avoid trying to set a timer to record a program that already has a timer.

VOMP General / MVP / Feature Request: UK MHEG
« on: January 11, 2007, 11:42:47 »
How about adding digital text capability to Vomp?

The RedButton MHEG Engine at
is an active project that allows you to use interactive MHEG

Maybe this could be incorporated into Vomp?
This might need to work in conjunction with the vdr-mhp plugin
