|| ||Thu, 24 Nov 2005 13:14:33 +0100|
Version: Rivendel - 0.4.1
Type: Video Application
KMediaNet is a set of applications to use more
easiest the Network Mutltimedia Middleware (NMM)
The official web of NMM is
http://www.networkmultimeida.org. What is NMM? The
Network-Integrated Multimedia Middleware (NMM)
provides an architecture that allows to create
distributed multimedia application easily: local
and remote multimedia devices or software
components can be controlled transparently and
integrated into a common multimedia processing
flow graph. NMM is both a research project and an
Open Source project. NMM runs under Linux, is
implemented in C++, and distributed under the LGPL
KMediaNet now has two applications:
- kio_nmm : A kio slave for konqueror that is used
to see the resources (DVD, TV Card, files, ...)
that a remote or local computer is sharing.
- nmm_dcop : Is the player. When you clic at a
resource into kio_nmm this call to nmm_dcop to
launch a player. You can launch a player without
use kio_nmm using kdcop or dcop to do the correct
Using it you can play a tvcard (v4l2 driver), the
dvd player or a file as if this resources would be
installed at the local computer. The screenshot 2
is a dvd play from a remote machine and you can
This applications can be improved but now is a
You must be installed at your system the NMM cvs
version that you can find at:
You must be installed "libextractor" and "avinfo"
at the system that is running serverregistry. When
you finish installation of NMM then you can
install kio_nmm and nmm_dcop. Both applications
are need to a correct work.
You must set the enviroment variable NMM_DEV_DIR
at /etc/profile.local or other but this variable
must be see by KDE. The directories that contains
the nmm libs must be added to /etc/ld.so.conf.
The remote machine must run the serverregistry
application from NMM. Review your firewalls
because a connection from remote to local is done
and if the firewall is blocking it the player
Then at local machine, launch a konqueror and put
at location bar: nmm://"remote_machine_name". You
cannt't put the ip. If you want to use ip do this:
and at remotemachine_name put the name that is
used at the remote machine as linux name.
I'm searching collaborators to do the web page of
these applications and to continuate the develop
of this project.
- Bug fix release
- Now LADSPA Plugins are used. By this you have to
set LADSPA enviroment:
How do I use LADSPA with NMM?
(1) setup the environment variable LADSPA_PATH;
otherwise no LADSPA plugins were found by the
LADSPANode. There are som LADSPA plugins in
(2) in the directory /resources exists a XML file
named LADSPAPlugin_presets.xml containing presets
for some plugins. It is possible to create
additional 'profiles'. To create a new profile,
simple copy another profile for the plugin of
choice and change the values between the and
tags. The default profile is set up to make the
plugins my appear neutral.
(3) there is a graph description (mp3ladspa.gd).
Additional parameters are 1 or more mp3 encoded
New many improvements:
- kopete - kmedianet : Is a Jabber protocol plugin
for kopete. With it you can controlate and
manipulate all parameters of kmedianet. The remote
user configure all parameters at KMediaNet Kopete
and the local users receive it by clicking at the
remote user with right click and selecting
"Request NMM Resources".
- New graphs: Video Conference, Call Conference
and VNC Viewer.
