TP-Link TL-WN722N or TL-WN722NC with free firmware

TP-Link TL-WN722N or NC one has a cradle free firmware ref here

Building Video Editors from scratch - An overview

After needing to import and convert video in to Dragora GNU/Linux-Libre I started to look at video editors. This is what I found. In keeping with our keep it light simple phylosophy this was always going to be a little challenging. We try and avoid Heavy QT and GTK3 depends so some are way down our list even though they may be good tools.

I thought it would be a good idea to dump all the info I've come across in one place. I don't expect this info to be up to date just a general pointer for building them from scratch.

Some are current or alpha some rather older and not being actively developed.

"Compiling Avidemux

This article contains information on generally compiling Avidemux, from the SVN repository or from tarballs, for your operating and some custom choices for the compilation. There are general guides, package descriptions and specific information for some Linux distributions that need specific compilation switches to successufully create the program from source.
Information on the compilation

To compile Avidemux, you will need to have the necessary dependencies met. Namely, you will need to install (or have already installed) several development packages. Here is a list and brief description of the packages:
Mandatory packages

    SpiderMonkey: Needed for scripting (only for Avidemux versions up to 2.3).
    GTK+: Avidemux 2.1-2.3 needs GTK+ 2.6 or newer. That includes also pkg-config, that might be a separate package. Avidemux 2.4 or newer can be built with GTK+, Qt 4 or commandline user interface. The GTK+ version needs GTK+ 2.10 or newer, including Cairo. Some older Linux distributions (e.g. Fedora Core 4) include older GTK+ versions, without Cairo.
    libxml2: XML library, version 2. Used for filter descriptions and ~/.avidemux/config.
    GCC: Source code compiler for Avidemux to be created with.

Optional packages

Audio:

    libmad: MAD is needed for MP3 and MP2 decoding.
    LAME: MP3 audio encoding.
    libvorbis: Vorbis audio encoding and decoding.
    FAAD: AAC audio decoder.
    FAAC: AAC audio encoding.
    a52dec: Audio decoding support for AC3 audio (DVDs & others).
    libdca: Audio decoding support for DTS (DVD and others).

Video:

    Xvid: MPEG-4 SP/ASP encoder.
    x264: MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) encoder.

Miscellaneous:

    FreeType: needed for the Subtitler filter.
    OSS: Open Sound System. Linux kernel 2.6 and newer uses ALSA with optional OSS emulation.
    ALSA: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture. Direct ALSA sound output can be set in Preferences.
    SDL: SDL can be used for audio and video output. Not needed on Linux and BSD.
    XVideo: Hardware display acceleration (overlay) during playback. Lower CPU usage.
    ESD: sound output daemon. Obsolete and not needed.
    aRts: KDE 3.x sound system daemon. Not needed in KDE 4, not recommended.

General compilation instructions

This guide has information on compiling in two ways. The method for both is basically the same, with only one command change at the beginning to download from where you want.
Choosing what to compile

You have two choices for where you can download files to compile.

    Download the latest stable tarball version from the download page. This is the stable version for those who want a program that is mostly bug free and stable.

    Download the unstable source files for the latest versions of Avidemux from the SVN repository. The SVN version is usually the latest development version which can contain some bugfixes and also new features. It is classified as unstable or testing, though it really is quite stable in general. Regardless, we do not recommend using the SVN version to do any work you care about saving - use the stable version from the tarball on the website for that. You can download the source code from SVN using this command:

    svn co svn://svn.berlios.de/avidemux/branches/avidemux_2.5_branch_gruntster/

Compilation commands

cd avidemux

(enter the source code directory)
CMake build

The 2.4 branch uses CMake as its primary build method. You can build Avidemux 2.4 or later using these commands in the source code directory:

    cmake .

    (the dot is required)

    make

Old method (Avidemux 2.3 and older)

    make -f Makefile.dist

    (this is needed if you compile the SVN version, not needed for the official release)

    ./configure --with-jsapi-include=xxxx [[--with-newfaad|for Gentoo or Ubuntu]]

    (xxxx is the directory where SpiderMonkey is installed - you cannot compile Avidemux 2.3 or older without SpiderMonkey, version 2.4 does not require external SpiderMonkey anymore)

    make

    (compile Avidemux)

    make install

    (install Avidemux - you must be root, use the

    su

    command for that)

Using the 'locate jsapi.h' command will usually find the directory you need with the jsapi.h file. If the locate command does not find it, you should update the location database with the command 'updatedb' and then re-try 'locate jsapi.h' command.

Some people may not want to have all the feature for Avidemux compiled into their program. Here is a list of ./configure arguments to prevent features from being compiled:

Audio

    OSS: –without-oss
    aRts: –without-arts
    ESD: –without-esd

Video

    XV: –disable-xv"

License details

The source code we develop at blender.org is default being licensed as GNU GPL Version 2 or later. Some modules we make are using more permissive licenses though, for example the Blender Cycles rendering engine is available as Apache 2.0.

Blender also uses many modules or libraries from other projects. For example Python uses the Python License; Bullet uses the ZLib License; Libmv uses the MIT License; and OSL, a BSD License.

All the components that together make Blender are compatible under the newer GNU GPL Version 3. That is also the license to use for any distribution of Blender binaries.

 Blender is an integrated 3d suite for modelling, animation, rendering, post-production, interactive creation and playback (games). Blender has its own particular user interface, which is implemented entirely in OpenGL and designed with speed in mind. Python bindings are available for scripting; import/export features for popular file formats like 3D Studio and Wavefront Obj are implemented as scripts by the community. Stills, animations, models for games or other third party engines and interactive content in the form of a standalone binary are common products of Blender use.

http://cinelerra-cv.org/docs/split_manual_en/cinelerra_cv_manual_en_2.html

Software requirements

To install Cinelerra you should have a current version of GNU/Linux with the X Window System (e.g., X.org) and some audio management software properly running. You should also have the following libraries installed (partial list):

    a52dec
    dv
    faac
    ffmpeg
    fftw
    lame
    libavc1394
    libfaad2
    libraw1394
    mjpegtools
    OpenEXR
    theora
    x264

You will also need the headers for all required libraries. For many distributions, this means that you will need to install the "-dev" or "devel" packages that correspond to your installed library packages. In addition to the libraries listed here, be sure you have the X library headers. Missing headers will usually result in compilation failing with cryptic error messages.

The Cinelerra package contains Cinelerra and most of the libraries needed to run it. We try to include all the dependancies because of the difficulty in tracking down the right versions. Also included are some utilities for handling files. The following are the general contents of all Cinelerra packages.

    Foreign language translations - These go into /usr/share/locale.
    Cinelerra executable - This goes into /usr/bin
    Cinelerra plugins - These go into /usr/lib/cinelerra in 32 bit systems and /usr/lib64/cinelerra in 64 bit systems.
    soundtest - Utility for determining sound card buffer size.
    mplexlo - Multiplexing of MPEG elementary streams without standards conformance but more efficiently.
    mpeg3cat - Utility for reading an MPEG file from a certain standard and outputting it to stdout.
    mpeg3toc, mpeg3cat, mpeg3dump - Utilities/ for indexing and reading MPEG files.
    mpeg3peek - Utility for displaying the byte offset of a frame in an MPEG file.

Experimental package

Warning: This package is from the experimental distribution. That means it is likely unstable or buggy, and it may even cause data loss. Please be sure to consult the changelog and other possible documentation before using it.
non-linear video editor

Flowblade Movie Editor is designed to provide a fast, precise and as-simple-as-possible editing experience.

Flowblade employs film style editing paradigm in which clips are usually automatically placed tightly after the previous clip - or between two existing clips - when they are inserted on the timeline. Edits are fine-tuned by trimming in and out points of clips, or by cutting and deleting parts of clips. Film style editing is faster for creating programs with mostly straight cuts and audio splits, but may be slower when programs contain complex composites unless correct work flow is followed.

— 10/2013 —

Lumiera is written for GNU/Linux. We try to make the best out of modern system programming techniques to reach the best possible performance. Lumiera shall scale with the provided Hardware, the more RAM and the more/faster CPU’s you have the better. Nevertheless lower end 32bit machines are supported too.

Secondary targets will be other free operating systems which offer a decent Posix API.
Porting to other more or less similar platforms will be possible, if — by coincidence — Someone™ helps with porting.

Having said that — for the time being, the core team won’t spend much effort on porting.
Platform

We work and test on PC hardware, 32 and 64 bit. It is intended that Lumiera supports other platforms running run GNU/Linux. Lumiera expects a standard desktop installation running a Xserver.

Graphics

    There are no special requirements for the graphic system. Hardware acceleration will likely be added later through extensions, but will remain strictly optional. (For now we’ll watch the evolution in that area and might revisit that topic when there are more compelling and widely supported solutions available)
Disks

    No special requirements. Video editing requires decent disk speed though, so it is suggested to use a fast/big array of disks configured as raid.
Special Hardware

    Support for special hardware would be possible, but depends on certain conditions

        we need access / donations for the hardware

        specs and APIs must be open.

        someone to do the actual interfacing and support needs to join the team

Languages and Tools

    C / C++

        a C99 / C++11 compatible compiler (1)

        GCC 4.7 or Clang 3.0 should be fine (2).

    BOOST (listed below are the Debian package names)

        libboost-dev (at least 1.55)

        libboost-program-options-dev

        libboost-program-options-dev

        libboost-filesystem-dev

        libboost-regex-dev

    Script languages

        Python (2.6) for build scripts

        bash (some test scripts use bash specific extensions)

Build Tools

    Git

    SCons 2.0 (3)

    pkg-config

    Doxygen

We maintain a Debian/Ubuntu package (relying on debhelper, CDBS, git-buildpackage)
Libraries

    BOOST (4)

    NoBug

    GAVL (for raw media support)

    ALSA: libasound2-dev

    for the GUI: gtkmm-2.4 gdl-1.0 libglibmm-2.4 cairomm-1.0 xv

        libgtkmm-2.4-dev

        libcairomm-1.0-dev

        libglibmm-2.4-dev, requiring glib2.0 and gthread-2.0

        libxv-dev and X-lib (5)

        librsvg-2.0 and librsvg2-dev for rendering Icons

        libgdl-1-dev — old version of the Gnome Docking Library (6)

(1) in practice, we build using GCC and occasionally we check using Clang
(2) basically we try to use just the stock language. On rare occasions, we did use some GCC extensions, like typeof(), but there are workarounds, in case this becomes a problem
(3) we build with SCons >= 2.0 since a long time. Previously the buildsystem used to work with 1.0 In addition, we use some SCons plug-ins, which are all shipped in-tree (admin/scons)
(4) as of 5/2014, we rely on the quite recent Boost-1.55, which isn’t in Debian/stable and not even in Debian/testing. As always in such cases, we provide backported packages in our Lumiera package repository, until these versions become mainstream.
(5) for the XV viewer widget gui/output/xvdisplayer.cpp
(6) GDL isn’t directly related to GNOME any more. We contributed to the improvement of this library in the past. These improvements went upstream with GDL-2.27. Since we’re still using GTK-2, for now we’re forced to use a really ancient version, which isn’t available from the official repositories — you can find the original tarball and several Debian/Ubuntu packages in our Lumiera package repository though. Basically we need 2.27 =< GDL =< 2.30

non-linear audio/video editor using GStreamer

GStreamer is a streaming media framework, based on graphs of filters which operate on media data. Applications using this library can do anything from real-time sound processing to playing videos, and just about anything else media-related. Its plugin-based architecture means that new data types or processing capabilities can be added simply by installing new plug-ins.

PiTiVi allows users to easily edit audio/video projects based on the GStreamer framework. PiTIVi provides several ways of creating and modifying a timeline. Ranging from a simple synopsis view (a-la iMovie) to the full-blown editing view (aka Complex View) which puts you in complete control of your editing.

Capuring dv video from a samsung VP-D381 and converting it to avi on Dragora Linux Libre

 First build and install dvgrab and sundry libs then...

dvgrab


Plugin the firewire to the camcorder I also made sure the power was connected as I had now idea of it's battery life.

I then switched it on rewound the tape  and put it in the play mode

code:
dvgrab -i

then

c

to start the capture

wait. Use the info I found below, rinse and repeat until you have you dvgrab-xxx.dv files

https://tr.opensuse.org/Video_editing/Capturer_DV_vid%C3%A9o_DV_with_dvgrab

"Principle of working

You must have the ieee1394 modules loaded and, of course, the camcorder connected and switched in read mode.

dvgrab is a CLI application, close all the eventually perturbating apps and open an xterm.

Go to the folder where you wan the files to be written. These files are approx 1Gb and must stay at the same place for all the video editing work. They can be moved straight after the capture, but given the size, this is long, so better avoid it.

Run:

dvgrab

The capture begins automatically. The files will use the dv2 format, easy to read with nearly any application, cut in approx 1Gb chunks (approx 10 minutes) and named dvgrab-XXX, where XXX is a three digits number, for example:

dvgrab-003.avi

You can add the --autosplit option to have the file cut at any timecode break (usually new sequence), very handy.
Interactive mode

If you run:

dvgrab -i

You enter an interactive mode.
?
    gives the command list
q
    quits, stopping an eventual capture
p
    play the camcorder. If the camcorder screen is open you will have image and sound from it, but nothing from the PC, but a counter
c
    start the capture
Escape
    stops the capture
h
    slow back move
l
    fast forward
j
    fast rewind
a
    rewind

There are others commands, but on my computer the keyboard/dvgrab interface is not reliable, so I try not to use it. "


Conversion with ffmpeg


Now I had 40GB of files! I needed to convert them to avi so my mate could edit them

code:
 ffmpeg -i dvgrab-001.dv -vcodec copy -vtag dvsd -acodec pcm_s16le -f avi -aspect 4:3 -y video-001.avi

dvgrab dumps files in 1gb chunks and just numbers each file.  001, 002 etc

I found the avi files were 36mb bigger. All the added crap no doubt.

icewm

started playing with icewm




getting there


a bit more


and a bit more refined the clock menu volume and added comixcursors



The theme is a mishmash of 3 basic themes and my tweaking. whiteness > lovena > icenoir-3.3


My thoughts on icewm

Stable, very configurable, fast, standards compliant. Ugly by default but can be made pretty  but a little bit heavy  compared with some WM's when you add up all it's stuff it's using. That said it's very complete you don't need any other bits and pieces to fill in the gaps. It has a run dialog built in email notification, CPU monitor, network monitor and a host of other stuff. Running round 7.5MB here. IceWM is released under the terms of the GNU Library General Public License.

Of the 4 WM's I've tested for "Dragora tiny" flwm-topside, Windowlab, JWM and icewm. Icewm is the most configurable.

I loved windowlab. Light, fast, easy to configure and a dream to use but a bit buggy. Nice but not standard compliant so some applications would not run or crashed it. Not stable enough for work use. It's a keeper though. Used less then 1MB of ram. Windowlab is released under the terms of the GPLv2 License.

Flwm-topside. Nice but not standard compliant so some applications would not run or crashed it. A little bit trickier to set up but easy enough. Desktop switching was a head fuck, I never got used t it. Used 2 to 3MB of ram. Flwm is released under the terms of the GPLv2+ License.

JWM is very stable, light and fairly configurable but some basic feature were missing and it drove me crazy trying to get around them. It was basically unusable for me until I installed simpleswitcher as alt-tab across all open applications does not exist. Used about 3MB of ram. JWM is released under the terms of the GPLv2 License.

If I was ship wrecked and could only have one it would be icewm for it's shear tweak-ability closely followed by Windowlab because it is a joy to use.

windowlab


After much frustration searching for a light and stable  WM that addresses the fundamental short comings of the usual candidates I think I may have found it.

It still has some things I need to over come. Stuff I want but it seems the nearest thing I've found so far. 
 windowlab.

You can find it here   http://nickgravgaard.com/windowlab/ and I recommend you read the page as it has a very good explanation of the rational

menu view


select view


  I would improve it by adding a clock on the active window.

Usage:
Alt+"push/drag" on the edges of the active window to resize
Alt+F11 for full screen
Alt+F12 send active window down the stack
Alt+Tab scroll back
Alt+q scroll forewords

I'm getting a few crashes/freezes opening applications with multiple windows. Gmplayer crashes windowlab as does bashrun2. I really hope there is a fix as it's the dogs danglies when it comes to usage.
