VOMP for Raspberry Pi / vompclient 0.5 features
« Last post by ralph on March 11, 2018, 19:59:35 »
Hi vomp developers,

I just noticed that there has been a new release of vomp for RPI. Thx a lot for that :D. I am with vomp since more than 10 years now and it is still the best vdr streaming solution out there.

I tried to find answers to various question about the release but it is rather silent around vomp nowadays. I checked vdr-wiki, vdr-portal and the git for information. It seems most people rely on Kodi, which in my opinion is not suitable for the performance of a RPI. I also checked the git logs and got some ideas, while I am unsure in some aspects. Perhaps the developers would like to give some information on the release:
  • Is lirc supported now? I was using the lircd creating uinput events, but this also caused the console to show a lot of strange characters. Direct usage of lirc would be the better solution imho. CEC is not working for me as my TV does not support the forwarding of remote control events.
  • Is it possible to compile on Raspbian Stretch? I saw some commits regarding stretch, but is it working ootb with updated CEC and FFMPEG versions?
  • Is the server plugin also working with vdr 2.3.x? Latest Ubuntu versions seem to ship now with 2.3.x. Any experiences?
  • Is it planned to provide some information at the vdrwiki, in the vdr portal or at least as a readme? The marketing of vomp is rather modest. Or are no new users wanted?
  • Is there a chance to get a Debian package being built? The debian tree is currently reflecting the version 0.4.2 as head. Perhaps this can be updated. Also, the system integration is based on init and not systemd. This is a little outdated for jessie and stretch. Are there somewhere updates around already?
  • Are contributions welcome? In which way? I did not see the possibility to add myself as a developer. At least at the packaging point or by writing a readme I should be able to contribute a little.
  • Is root really needed to run vompclient? I was running vompclient 0.4.1 always without root and never observed any trouble.

Thx for any further information provided.

Thanks for reporting this.
I have added your fix to the git.

VOMP for Raspberry Pi / Re: Option Advanced Menu not working properly

sourcefile VOPTS.CC needs to be corrected:

WRONG: option = new Option(19, "Advanced Menu", "General", "Menu type",Option::TYPE_TEXT, 2, 0, 0, options19);
CORRECT: option = new Option(19, "Advanced Menu", "Advanced", "Menu type",Option::TYPE_TEXT, 2, 0, 0, options19);

I've found the error  ;D

The client tries to load the option from the ADVANCED section, but it's saved to GENERAL.
As a workaround i've moved the "Menu type = Classic" parameter in the conf-file to the correct section.

VOMP for Raspberry Pi / [solved] Option Advanced Menu not working properly
« Last post by kowovomp on January 11, 2018, 21:48:23 »

the 0.5.0 image is running well, but the "advanced menu" option is not working properly.

I would like to stay with "classic" menu, that works fine until i restart the raspberry.
after a reboot the option ist still set to "classic", but the skin looks like "advanced".
if i set the option to advanced and back to classic, it's fine again.

the option is also saved correct in <MAC>.conf file as "Menu type = Classic".

Thanks for help,
VOMP for Raspberry Pi / Sleeptimer and volume at startup
« Last post by kaiserbene1 on November 19, 2017, 21:49:57 »

is there any way to activate a sleeptimer to avoid the tv running the whole night while sleeping in front of it? I love vomp running on my pi having hd streams - but i remember there was a function like this on the mvp - so any solutions for this topic?
also the volume is at 100% when starting up the pi - can this be reduced in any way?

Thanks for any advice...


(vomp 0.5 looks awesome - thanks for the graphic redesign)
VOMP General / MVP / Re: Media MVP is not starting
« Last post by JR.VOY on October 03, 2017, 07:37:27 »
Thank you
Hi there,

to avoid splitting of recording the Lean Belly Breakthrough results I run vdr with a relatively large value for MaxVideoFileSize. This lead to issues within RecPlayer::scan and getBlock as fseek and ftell are limited to a file size of 4GB. Replacing them with their fseeko and ftello counterparts fixes this for me - patch attached.

Excellent thanks for the patch Alex.
VOMP General / MVP / VOMP 0.5.0 Installation
« Last post by eed01 on April 27, 2017, 06:37:19 »
i just compiled and installed the vompserver plugin on a Ubuntu 16.04 LTS System.
Ubuntu comes with VDR 2.2.0 but no vompserver plugin available

Some remarks to the installation:

- vomp.conf must be copied to /etc/vdr/conf.avail and symlinked from /etc/vdr/conf.d  (e.g. 50-vomp.conf)
- [General] in the file vomp.conf has to be replaced by [vompserver]. VDR seems to generate the plugin name it wants to load from this string

Announcements / Version 0.5.0 released
« Last post by Chris on March 15, 2017, 17:31:58 »
After the longest development delay yet.. VOMP 0.5.0 is finally finished!

New things:

  • Improved EPG and recordings menu
  • Poster, cast and banner picture through scraper2vdr support
  • TV station logos
  • Scrollable EPG texts
  • Different skins (noOpacity inspired and two classic skins) - different color schemes
  • TVBD inclusion through scraper2vdr
  • Uses audio and subititle presets from VDR settings
  • Mouse wheel support (Windows)
  • High resolution vector based OSD (Windows)
  • Support for Raspbian Jessie
  • Experimental support for VDR 2.3.1/2
  • Experimental new SD card image for Raspberry Pi


  • Several crashes, lock-ups and memory leaks have been fixed
  • Fixes for compatibility with newer Raspbery Pi firmware

Other notes:

The minimum VDR version is 1.7.35, the maximum is 2.2.0 but it may work with 2.3.1 and 2.3.2.

Raspberry Pi models 1 and 2 are known to work. If you run it on a 3 let us know how it goes.

The SD card download is a new and experimental feature. Please let me know of any problems, or even success stories!

The MVP is still supported for this release, but this is most likely the last version to support it.
