One of the best linux videos I've seen in ages
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 11, 2013
It was filmed at a TEDxConcordia event, and is well done without being over-the-top. A must-see for linux fans. Btw, it's called
"What the Tech Industry Has Learned from Linus Torvalds"It's only 18 min., so you won't have to quit your job to watch it.
[SOLVED] Best file system for storing videos
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 7, 2012
What would you guys recommend for storing videos 1-2 GB (mostly just TV shows, x264)
From what I've read I'm leaning towards XFS, but open to suggestions! Thanks!
what is the best linux os for watching videos without installing anything?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 21, 2014
i only plan on running the linux os from a usb (live & without persistent).
so i need a linux os like 'ubuntu studio' that can play videos without installing anything. ubuntu studio is good but it doesn't quite cater to my needs; particularly its video player.
does anyone know a linux os with pre-installed codecs for playing media files? (feel free to name all of 'em if there are many!)
please, any help would be greatly appreciated ^___^.
again, i dont wont to install anything (because i dont plan on using persistent)
What is the best way to serve videos on a website?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 12, 2011
I want so serve some videos on my site. They are available as .MP4 files gotten from a FlipShare camera.
Now I tried converting them to WMV (which succeeded, but when embedded in html in a <object id='mediaPlayer' width='320' height='285' classid='CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95' etc' tag, users have to install an addon and the user experience of 10 Windows Media Players on the site isn't just so good.)
So then I looked at youtube and wondered how they do it, but I can't figure out what format they convert the video to.
So my question is: What format do I have to convert my video to, to show it in a player which does not need to be installed in the users browser. What tool do i need and what is the html code to embed such a video?
As you can see: starting from scratch.
PS: I often hear: This or that file extension is just a container, there can be anything inside. If you're using this in your answer, can you explain this to me, because I never understood this. For me
Best way to stream videos and text to raspberry pi
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I ask you because I'm sure to have answer to this question.
I have to find a solution about streaming, I explain :
I have to have a way to stream video and/or text, and the destination will be a raspberry pi, connected to a TV. The place will be somewhere with lots of people, in order to provide information. For exemple : Football match at 2 pm in front of the K building.
I did a website with the tag ... , it works with a normal PC but not with the raspberry pi B+ 512 MB. I'm gonna check with the raspberry 2.
I think there are many website to do that, but I really don't know what is easy/great for this kind of things.
The administration of my school has to be able to upload video and/or message easily.
Maybe I can make a software, which upload video to my local raspberry pi, and the Raspberry pi plays the video over and over again. And for the message, I can make something to write into the subtitles file, but I think it's not the best way to do that!
Thank you so much for y

CentOS, Fedora, or Ubuntu for server. Which is best?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2008
The title sums it up. And, posting this on an Ubuntu forum, I know beforehand that the answers might be a little biased.
But the gist of it is that I may soon need to set up and periodically administer a box that will be used for subversion, among other things. I've been using Ubuntu since Feisty on might desktop and have loved it overall. My first instinct is to go ahead and load Hardy LTS on the new server, but then again Fedora seems to be the go-to distro for servers.
I realize that Canonical is working hard to make Ubuntu a server household name in its own right with some already evident success, but I know Fedora supposedly has a history of being a strong server platform, and nearly every server I've seen in the past is usually running some form of Red Hat-inspired software.
Come to think of it, I had forgotten about CentOS. How does that stack up?
I haven't really administered a server of any kind before, so I'd appreciate honest assessments of each distr
Watching amazon instant videos
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 1, 2013
I am not able to search, so apologize if this has been discussed.
I am running 12.10 and have the latest updates. I tried to rent a video from amazon's instant video. I got an error about the flashplayer not being up to date.
Is it possible to watch amazon instant videos on ubuntu?
It would be kind of funny if we can't, since ubuntu made that deal with amazon.
Which distro do you find works the best ?
location: linux.com - date: May 9, 2011
I have been distro-hopping for about a year now, and tried the following: Opensuse, Ubuntu, PClinuxOS, Chakra, Crunchbang, Linux Mint, Sabayon, Bodhi Linux, Jolicloud, Kuki Linux, Debian, Vector, Peppermint, and I have tried to install Pardus, but never got the live USB working .
So I personally find that out of the distros I tried, Linux Mint and Crunchbang are the best . Although I have high expectations for Pardus, I have yet to try it ..
What are your opinions of the subject of linux distros ?
