Goggles DVD GUI & Fox available in my FC2 & FC3 repo

Post by Void Main » Thu Jan 13, 2005 10:39 pm

Goggles is an extremely cool GUI for the Ogle DVD player (the GUI that comes with Ogle is broken in FC3 and probably will be until someone picks up the development):

http://www.fifthplanet.net/goggles.html

I built RPMS for goggles and for the fox libraries which are required to run goggles. By far the easiest way to install would be to add this to add this to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

voidmain.list:

Code: Select all

rpm http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net apt/fedora/3/en/i386 voidmain
rpm-src http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net apt/fedora/3/en/i386 voidmain
then

# apt-get update
# apt-get install goggles

This assumes you have apt installed from Dag Wieer:

Do you have a core 2 repository? I would like to add it to my sources.list.

I do but I didn't create a Core 2 version of goggles. They say Core 2 and Core 3 are binary compatible so the Core 3 RPMS *should* work. I can build RPMS for Core 2 also if I can find any machines left that are running it. I have plenty of Core 3 and plenty of Core 1 and below but I believe I may have just upgraded my beefiest and last machine yesterday from Core 2 to Core 3.

Here's all the RPMS I have built for several versions of Red Hat/Fedora with repo instructions:
http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/files/RPMS/

The individual repo dirs are here:
http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/apt/fedor ... .voidmain/
http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/apt/fedor ... .voidmain/
http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/apt/fedor ... .voidmain/
http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/apt/redha ... .voidmain/
http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/apt/redha ... .voidmain/

If there is anything not in Dag's repo (and related repos) that you want added I would be more than happy to build RPMs for whatever you want. I guess I'll have to set up a Core 2 VMware installation to build core 2 RPMS under. Of course I don't have a lot of disk space or bandwidth on the Void Main server. I should probably just see about helping out Dag or Matthias with RPM building.

Yeah that is true. If everyone starts using your site as an upgrade source that would probably kill you bandwidth. I use xine as my DVD/Multimedia player anyway so the newest addition to your repository would not be of use to me.

I still use a combination of MPlayer, Xine, Helix, and Ogle. I still much prefer Ogle for DVD play and now this Goggles wrapper makes it even better. I probably use MPlayer 50%, Xine 40%, and Helix for 10% for all other video needs.

Thanks for creating the RPMS. Let me know if you experience any problems with Goggles.

Hi Goggles Guy! Thanks for the note and thanks for the great Ogle GUI! It's my new favorite DVD player.

Hey Void - ditto that..

Installed it over the weekend and watched "the gladiator" and "time line"
really appreciate the effort in making the GUI. :idea:

Yup, cheers and everything. Goggles is really good, and it got me out of the DVD hole of ogle_gui not working.

I would strongly suggest you try and get it into the repostiories. I know Dag Wiers was posting to the RH developers list to see if they could do something with the Ogle Gui, as the developers seem to have vanished.

It is nice to know a good project can be kept alive. And ogle is the only player that seems to properly manage menus.

Thanks Goggles Guy.

Ogle_GUI was never updated to work with the CVS version of Ogle. Since the RH/FC rpms of Ogle are based on the CVS version (some ALSA updates are available there), Ogle_GUI stopped working. I don't think the developers themselves are that much interested in keeping Ogle_GUI up 2 date. Mainly because there are already two frontends available (that do much more then Ogle_GUI) , and the developers themselves mostly run the ogle from the commandline.

Anyway, Ogle development has been rather quiet the last year and we're lucky that it is fairly stable.

Goggles has been hibernating too, although there were some recent updates to support Repeat modes. Next version will feature some improvements in selecting shortcut keys. In the near future (+6 Months), FOX will have I18N support and Goggles will be a testbed to add translations and such.

As for adding Goggles to official distributions, I'll let other people fiddle with that ;)

I was a little late with these but I have created new FC3 RPMS for Goggles 0.8.0:

http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/files/RPMS/goggles/

If you are pointing to my apt repo just:
# apt-get update
# apt-get dist-upgrade

Nice new features. Thanks again Goggles guy!

Ok I finally got around to trying this and I seem to be having issues with the palyback of DVD's. I installed the rpm packages that you made void and the install went fine but goggles can not read the DVD. The error says it can not be read. I have tried supplying it with /dev/cdrom, /dev/cdrom1, and /dev/dvd and all say that it can not read any data from any drive. I am not entirely sure of which one is my actual DVD reader but it should be one of those three. I installed libdvdread and libdvdcss for xine also and xine can not read a DVD either. I could have swore I have read dvd's before with xine but can not remember.

Any ideas on why neither player can read this DVD? For information purposes the DVD is "Finding Nemo".

Run them from the command line and see what the error messages are. Goggles is just a GUI front-end for ogle. I assume you have ogle installed (there should be a dependency for it when you install Goggles).

I have a feeling it might be encryption related. Now that I think about it there were several DVDs I could not play on my DVD player on my laptop and it was because the region was not set properly. Once I set the region all DVDs played fine. There is a good possibility that you are having the same problem. I believe I used the "regionset" program to set this.

Here are the error captures from the command line:
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.8 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.

libdvdread: Can't open /dev/hdb for reading
ERROR[ogle_nav]: failed to open/read the DVD at /dev/hdb: (123) No medium found
I tried multiple mount points just to make sure and all error with the same message. I checked the device itself under "System Tools > Hardware Browser" and show that both my CD-ROM and DVD-ROM say "none or built-in" under the driver information. Of course this could be bad. Are there any third party drivers that need to be installed for this. I was under the impression that basic read drivers came with the Fedora Core package and that you only needed other drivers if you had a burner. I have already installed "libdvdread" via apt-get just in case and no change.
