Re: [SOLVED] Kaffeine doesn't work with dvb-t usb receiver

it doesn't work with vlc either:

Why it works only with mpv?

Re: [SOLVED] Kaffeine doesn't work with dvb-t usb receiver

Kaffeine is using libvlc so it is not surprising that both don't work.

I would check the optional dependencies from vlc.

Re: [SOLVED] Kaffeine doesn't work with dvb-t usb receiver

This problem has existed for years. What I do is to record the channel I want to watch in RAM and play it with smplayer/mpv.


Excuse my poor English.

Re: [SOLVED] Kaffeine doesn't work with dvb-t usb receiver

then i solved buying a new motherboard.
Before i had a motherboard with cpu intel j1900. Now i have an Intel i3-7100 and dvb works good on vlc/kaffeine too. Very strange...

Re: [SOLVED] Kaffeine doesn't work with dvb-t usb receiver

also on another pc with cpu Ryzen 5600G, kaffeine and vlc doesn't work but mpv works!
WHY??????????? I can't understand.

on kaffeine, usb stick led is green and seems to work, but screen is black and there is no audio.
maybe is a codec problem? i have installe x254 and x265 packages but didn't solve.

i'm happy for you :-)

anyway i wonder why aribb24 is an optional dependency, maybe it would be better to make it a mandatory dependency, especially for kaffeine.

Re: [SOLVED] Kaffeine doesn't work with dvb-t usb receiver

Why? Optional dependencies are there for enabling optional features where possible. Almost every format vlc supports is implemented as an optional dependencies because VLC has a plugin architecture that dynamically loads the stuff that is present. Ergo an optional dependency. You need to read pacman's output and supply the appropriate optionals for the functionality you need.

i have edited vlc arch wiki page adding "DVB-T stream" on "RTSP streams or Blu-rays do not load":
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/VLC_me … o_not_load

EDIT:
I also edited arch wiki DVB-T page:
