--- Begin Message ---Package: vlc Version: 0.8.1-3 Severity: normal Hi, I've got a 17" monitor on a system without DVD drive, and a 12" monitor on a laptop with DVD drive. This is a perfect situation to use VLC's streaming properties -- viewing DVD movies on a larger monitor is so much more comfortable, while I prefer not having to copy an entire DVD image to the other system's hard disk. However, since my LAN is only a 10Mbit one currently, streaming a DVD at full quality simply isn't possible; it requires more bandwith than what I have available. So, I selected the transcoding option in the VLC interface. While experimenting with that option, I discovered that scaling down the resolution of the stream while leaving the stream's bitrate on maximum has a much higher impact on the required bandwith than doing it the other way around, while the impact on quality is negligable (so long as the scale isn't too high). Unfortunately, something went wrong with subtitles; they just didn't appear on the output. Only when I played a DVD that at one point had the subtitles all on top did I find out what went wrong: these are simply not scaled, they're still on the original scale. As a result, if the stream is transcoded to a lower resolution, subtitles won't be visible. -- System Information: Debian Release: 3.1 APT prefers unstable APT policy: (500, 'unstable'), (500, 'testing'), (1, 'experimental') Architecture: i386 (i686) Kernel: Linux 2.6.10 Locale: lang=nl_be.iso-8859...@euro, lc_ctype=nl_be.iso-8859...@euro (charmap=ISO-8859-15) Versions of packages vlc depends on: ii aalib1 1.4p5-22 ascii art library ii dbus-1 0.23-1 simple interprocess messaging syst ii liba52-0.7.4 0.7.4-1 Library for decoding ATSC A/52 str ii libc6 2.3.2.ds1-20 GNU C Library: Shared libraries an ii libdvbpsi3 0.1.4-2 library for MPEG TS and DVB PSI ta ii libdvdnav4 0.1.9-3 The DVD navigation library ii libdvdread3 0.9.4-5 Simple foundation for reading DVDs ii libflac6 1.1.1-5 Free Lossless Audio Codec - runtim ii libfreetype6 2.1.7-2.3 FreeType 2 font engine, shared lib ii libfribidi0 0.10.4-6 Free Implementation of the Unicode ii libgcc1 1:3.4.3-7 GCC support library ii libgnutls11 1.0.16-13 GNU TLS library - runtime library ii libhal0 0.4.7-1 Hardware Abstraction Layer - share ii libid3tag0 0.15.1b-3 ID3 tag reading library from the M ii liblircclient0 0.7.1pre1-1 LIRC client library ii libmad0 0.15.1b-1 MPEG audio decoder library ii libmodplug0 1:0.7-4 shared libraries for mod music bas ii libmpeg2-4 0.4.0b-2 MPEG1 and MPEG2 video decoder libr ii libncurses5 5.4-4 Shared libraries for terminal hand ii libogg0 1.1.0-1 Ogg Bitstream Library ii libpng12-0 1.2.8rel-1 PNG library - runtime ii libstdc++5 1:3.3.5-8 The GNU Standard C++ Library v3 ii libtar 1.2.11-2 C library for manipulating tar arc ii libtheora0 0.0.0.alpha3-1 The Theora Video Compression Codec ii libvorbis0a 1.0.1-1 The Vorbis General Audio Compressi ii libvorbisenc2 1.0.1-1 The Vorbis General Audio Compressi ii libx11-6 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10 X Window System protocol client li ii libxext6 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10 X Window System miscellaneous exte ii libxml2 2.6.11-5 GNOME XML library ii libxosd2 2.2.14-1 X On-Screen Display library - runt ii libxv1 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10 X Window System video extension li ii slang1 1.4.9dbs-8 The S-Lang programming library - r ii ttf-freefont 20031008-1.1 Freefont Serif, Sans and Mono True ii wxvlc 0.8.1-3 wxWindows frontend for VLC ii xlibmesa-gl [libgl1] 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10 Mesa 3D graphics library [XFree86] ii xlibmesa-glu [libglu1] 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10 Mesa OpenGL utility library [XFree ii xlibs 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10 X Keyboard Extension (XKB) configu ii zlib1g 1:1.2.2-4 compression library - runtime -- no debconf information
