    Re: Ubuntu studio software removal?

    Ubuntu Studio is made up of meta packages.

    This result in dependency problems if you try to remove some of the softwares that you don't use.

    E.G, a simple removal or Ardour, which you may never use, leads to removal of entire ubuntustudio-audio metapackage. Hence this is not advised

    If you want to only stream videos on the web, you can give some other flavor of Ubuntu a try,
    Xubuntu is the first that comes to mind, since it also has Xfce DE, just like Ubuntu Studio. You will get a same interface there.

    Yes, I would work the other way too, as suggested. Start with something lighter and add what you need. If streaming vid from the web is what you want to do UStudio is like shooting a mosquito with an elephant gun; there's a ton you will never use and trying to get rid of things will be problematic.

    thanks bro: so you say that i have no advantage with Ubuntu studio 1310 over any of the other Ubuntu flavors when it comes to live video streaming from the web,what about all the video codecs for various players out there.?

    This.

    For example, not a codec, but I installed the low latency kernel last night for audio/visual work. I am running a minimal install of 14.04 with xfce4 as a desktop manager. One of the beauties of Ubuntu is it's highly customisable.

    As suggested, you might want to go for a lightweight Xubuntu install and build it up from there (or even a minimal install if you're up to that).
