I can't run it on the same machine as the vdr server?

Or is there a way to make it work?


Use the -p <ip-address> command line option when starting qtvomp.


use the ip-address directly, not the name, as it doesn't resolve it.
./qtvomp -p

This is a limitation of vompserver at the moment (it blocks the port and only answers on this port).

No workaround possible from my side (at least not that I'm aware of).

Ok, now rethinking it: In case this port is blocked, the assumption that VDR is running on the box should be >99%.

So in the next version I will adjust the check so it then uses the localhost address by default (with a messagebox explaining it).


The main issue is this:

Binding to socket 3024 failed. Maybe you have a VDR instance running on this machine.

It now is resolving the, but I can't connect as it's on the same machine.


How about using the normal ip-address?

e.g. ./qtvomp -p

(I haven't tried the localhost address at home, but know the 192... works).

Maybe a firewall is also blocking the port (but this would look strange to me).


Isn't it "-s"? Or is that an earlier version of the code?

You are right and for me a brown paper bag.

-p was the first version, later I switched back to the same as vomp uses.


may you update/fix the announcement?

The README is correct, but in the announcement it is wrong.


Ok, moving onwards....

Please run

and to see what is missing.


Hmmm, nothing obvious.

This looks like Phonon < 4.2.
Phonon 4.2. was shipped with KDE 4.1.
In KDE 4.0 the version had issues i.e. with the videowidget. And that's what the issue looks like

So it seems it uses an older version of Phonon on your machine.


I moved the libraries out of the way and found I had another newer set in /usr/lib

all working now.. Thanks..
