Kaffeine - No device Found
« am: Dezember 06, 2012, 02:43:07 Nachmittag »
Hello,
I recently bought a Sundtek SkyTV USB DVB-S/S2 and found that in Kaffeine there was no device detected.
Markus (at Sundtek) kindly sent me this info:

opensuse requires some modified kaffeine Version, someone already updated suse packages:
The repositories are here:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Max1:/branches:/openSUSE:/12.1:/Update/standard/
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Max1:/branches:/openSUSE:/12.1:/Update/openSUSE_12.2/
So I added these to my repositories and reinstalled Kaffeine.
The device is now recognised and I have tuned it but when I try to play TV I get the message:
Cannot find demux plugin for MRL "fifo:/home/mike/.kde4/share/apps/kaffeine/dvbpipe.m2t".Also I cannot play DVDs any more - I get the message:
This version of Xine lacks support for playing DVD discs for legal reasons.
Please go to http://www.opensuse.org/XINE#Legal_Matters for further details.
I have tried to follow the link but ultimately i get to the page below and I have no idea which downloads I need:
http://packman.links2linux.org/package/xine-lib/332744
Can anyone help - I need to know how to get Kaffeine to play TV and to do these seemingly "illegal" things like play a DVD?

Thanks, in advance.
M

Your Plugins/Codecs are missing, you need to find the appropriate packages for your system.
Failure is a good thing! I'll fix it

Yes, I've spent many hours trying to install missing plugins & codecs. As a newbie, I'm stumped. I've followed loads of advice on other forums and downloaded all sorts of packages (literally hundreds of items) and nothing has worked. I'm now very frustrated. I've now no idea what to install from where & how. Any help would be appreciated.

As for a beginner we advice to use Ubuntu.


Maybe following documentation might help you forward:
http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_formats/12.1
http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_formats/12.2

please note about the legal situation on Opensuse about those things.

Success! I rebuilt Kaffeine with the patches.

I've now noticed that this topic is already in these forum pages as several threads (auf Deutsch). (Ich muss mein Deutsch verbessern).
I found the thread titled "HOWTO: Kaffeine patch .diff" useful.

In summary I downloaded the Kaffeine code with git, applied the sundtek_0.3.diff patch with the patch command and then rebuilt kaffeine as instructed by the README file.

Kaffeine now plays DVDs & TV perfectly - with VAAPI - I might add.

I've tried Ubuntu & Kubuntu and I prefer OpenSuse. It seems to me that it's better supported and has a more responsive forum.

Thanks for the advice & help.
