UMS-4.1.3-Java7 on Cubieboard A20

Post by guilhermerebello » Sat Oct 11, 2014 2:14 am

Is it possible to run UMS-4.1.3-Java7 on Cubieboard A20?
I would like to install samba server, UMS, transmission and jdownloader.
I tried many things but java-open isn't compatible with arm architeture.
My OS is: Cubian x1(http://cubian.org/)
anyone have any idea :?: :roll:

I am now running UMS 4.3.0 on Cubieboard ubuntu. Not bad. Videos play fine. I have all transcoding turned off. Will try the 5.0 version next.

I've just registered to post here =P

I'm also running UMS (just updated to 4.40, but 4.30 did work too) on a Cubieboard A20 with Cubian (r5 in my case, I believe it's more stable and lightweight), installed on NAND.
So far experience is good, you can play videos just fine, without any major lag or problem. Transcoding/muxing is trickier, you won't ever get any tsMuxer runing on armhf (as is cubieboard A20), but instead you might opt for ffmpeg. I'll soon post a nice script to use ffmpeg as muxer (not transcoder) in place of txMuxer. Muxing with FFMPEG does have some micro-spikes, but as long as you let it load for a minute, it plays fine.

That being said, I'm overcloking the Cubieboard to 1.2-1.1GHz and using performance governor. I'll too post a script. (I'm not using higher voltages, but I do have a heatsink for the CPU and RAM and a USB powered fan).

You must forget about using the provided ffmpeg and txMuxer (in linux/) folder, as that is (I believe) x86, not arm.

Installing ffmpeg might be kind of tricky, in my case I've had to use this repository here:
http://www.deb-multimedia.org/
(To sum up:)

Code: Select all

echo "deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
In case you already had ffmpeg installed, try "sudo apt-get upgrade" or "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade". Look out you don't break anything with "dist-upgrade".

Mediainfo might also not be intuitive, install it by issuing:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install mediainfo libzen-dev libmediainfo-dev
And don't forget to copy the UMS.conf file to whatever user is running UMS, in my case:

Code: Select all

sudo cp UMS.conf /root/.config/UMS/UMS.conf
And modify the ffmpeg path to use the system ffmpeg and not the provided one.

As for Java, I don't know of Cubian X1, but Cubian r5 comes with Java 7 preinstalled.

You are now ready to go!


PS:
You might also want to install mplayer and mencoder

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install mplayer mencoder

@blipi May I ask for your script for ffmpeg? I'm a little bit stuck with my odroid C1 trying to run this beauty, may be my drivers but I don't fully understand how to proceed right now, as I'm writing this I'm just able to run normal videos, but not even DVDs and not to mention transcoding, ffmpeg,tsMuxer or VLC does not work at all, MEncoder starts playing but not viewable, kinda laggy and audio its totally off sync, like 3 or 4 secs, I was trying to track errors on log file but I don't know what to look for exactly, I found some lines about ffmpeg not working properly and then stop the stream but it wasn't clear for me

this is a fragment of it

Hi there! Sorry for the late reply.

I'm also having issues with latests MEncoder versions that didn't had before. I'll look into it.
