    I can understand that. For most people, it is more for fun than function, depending on what is being done with is. Unless you are running a "show", it is not that critical.

    If this is the case, the 64bit alpha does work really well if a webcam is not a big deal for ya.

    As for the differences between 32 & 64 bit, outside of the usual benchmarks, I found that certain things are a bit faster. Installing or compiling software, video/audio rendering, stuff like that. Short of this, based on my experiences with 64bit Linux, that's about it but I am sure Tom can fill you in with other advantages.

    It's been a while since I posted in this thread, and since then I've upgraded to Firefox 3.5 and ustream works to play videos about 90% of the time, but I've never been able to get streaming video to work. Does this TV-FOX add-on fix the problem with the webcam and flash??? If so then I'll definitely check it out. Thanks!

    Edit: Also wanted to note that I'm still running 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 shipped with my system with 32-bit Flash going through the wrapper.

    Re: ustream.tv issue but Flash is otherwise fine

    I've also been having trouble with this and other flash based webcam web apps.

    I can watch live streams that are broadcast via ustream. All Youtube videos work fine. So far, every web based media player (video/audio) work fine.

    My issue is when trying to a) broadcast on ustream, b) upload video to YouTube/Facebook via webcam.

    My camera works under guvcview so I know my system recognises the camera. The camera also works through skype.

    Not sure how this may help with some of the issues posted above, but my camera works in this environment.

    I never did try the Fox-TV plugin someone suggested, but from what I've read the webcam features of Flash do not work when using the wrapper with 32-bit Flash on 64-bit Linux. I can view ustream and stickam videos, but I can't broadcast. This isn't any fault of the webcam, but rather Flash just doesn't support it using the wrapper or in the Alpha 64-bit Flash for Linux. I think the only way to get this working is to run 32-bit Linux with the native 32-bit Flash plugin. If anyone has been able to broadcast video through Flash-enabled sites like ustream or stickam on 64-bit Linux, I'd love to know how

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Exclamation Re: ustream.tv issue but Flash is otherwise fine

    It's something wrong with Ustream. Check out this site:
    http://escale.net/mundo/

    Streaming using Flash works fine there and I'm using the 32bit wrapper. I did have to toggle to Metacity to get the "Flash settings" box to allow clicks (all other clicky stuff works fine in Flash btw...).

    I hate Flash...

    Re: ustream.tv issue but Flash is otherwise fine

    I was able to get Ustream.tv working although not 100% reliable.


    One problem seems to be that audio is very low. I go to input audio preferences on System/Preferences/Sound/Input and we I reload, video isn't working. Unplug and replug the camera and video is working but audio is low again.

    Thanks for the update... I've never been able to get the Alpha 64-bit Flash to work on my system, I just get Segmentation Fault in Firefox when it hits any Flash enabled pages. But with it still being buggy I'll probably stick with the wrapper until it's officially released which should be this year sometime.

    Take care,

    Re: ustream.tv issue but Flash is otherwise fine

    After reading all the posts in this section I decided to try another browser. I installed Galeon Web browser from the Ubuntu Software Center. Logged into Ustream and was able to broadcast. The only other thing I did prior to the install was go to the macromedia flash manager and enabled ustream... Hope this helps!

    Actually indirectly your comment got me going... I did download Galeon, but it still didn't work. I didn't think about setting UStream to Always Allow in the Flash Settings Manager.

    From the Flash Settings Manager I cleared out all URL's in the camera tab, opened UStream and started broadcasting, which didn't work. Going back into Flash Settings Manager it then had 4 URL's listed in the webcam tab, so I set all to Always Allow. This did it... now when I try to Broadcast through UStream it works but is buggy.

    If I adjust the Framerate or any settings in the Advanced section, the video freezes and I have to close and reopen Firefox to get video back. Likewise if I stop the stream and go back in, it won't work... I have to once more close and reopen Firefox.

    I tested with Stickam and it worked as well.

    Below are the URL's I have set to Always Allow in the Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager under the Webcam tab:
    player.stickam.com
    www.ustream.tv
    redir.adap.tv
    cdn1.ustream.tv
    flash.quantserve.com
    core.videoegg.com

    So I think the problem was UStream nor Stickam were asking for permissions, and even though I had Always Ask set, the window to ask never came-up. When I tested with the Webcam Flash test sites the Ask window always appeared, but not for Ustream or Stickam.

    Anyway, this is neat! Not that I'll be broadcasting that much, but I'm glad it's working.

    And in-case I haven't mentioned it already, this is using the latest Alpha 64-bit Flash Plugin with Firefox 3.5.7 (Shiretoko) on Ubuntu Desktop 9.04... and on my PanP5

    One more thing, I haven't tested audio, so I don't know how well that works. I have headphones plugged into my laptop now, but I'll test it later and post an update.

    Take care, and happy broadcasting!

    Sam
