BT Broadband and Netflix on a smart TV: a solution at last?

The fix I described in an earlier post stopped working after a couple of weeks, and my family was again unable to access Netflix on our smart TV. Some people had reported that replacing their BT Home Hub 3 with a BT Home Hub 5 resolved the Netflix problem with their smart TVs, so I decided to buy a second-hand BT Home Hub 5 and can report that Netflix is again accessible via the Netflix app on my LG smart TV.

A post by an owner of a Sony smart TV reinforces my suspicion that the problem is due to a combination of providers:

The problem is that netflix app adds 8.8.4.4 as a DNS server. Using anything other than the homehub default gateway as the DNS server returns an error from parental controls as it uses that to apply said controls. No other app on my Sony smart TV does that and just uses what the DHCP server on the homehub hands out. The netflix app has to stop adding that backup IP address for DNS. Is it Sony setting that value or Netflix? Considering it is happening on non-Sony TVs the finger looks to be pointing at Netflix.

Anyway, I just hope the problem is finally solved in my case. The price I paid for the second-hand BT Home Hub 5 was reasonable, and it does have some advantages over the BT Home Hub 3 I was using previously, such as support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi and no need for an external DSL modem, so I am satisfied with the outcome although my opinion of BT is even lower now.

BT Broadband could be cause of Netflix app’s ui-113 message

A couple of months ago I posted regarding a problem with the Netflix app on my LG smart TV (Netflix – Not fit for purpose?). We use BT Infinity broadband with a BT HomeHub 3. The Netflix app on the TV stopped working in early January and always displayed a Netflix ‘ui-113’ message when trying to connect. As we are paying good money to Netflix, we resorted to trying various DNS server addresses posted on the Web for US Netflix, which only work for a short time. Although US Netflix has more content than UK Netflix, we want the latter as it has UK programmes not available on US Netflix. Not to mention that we live in the UK. And it seems my family is not the only one suffering: BT Broadband Users Suffer Problems with Netflix on UK Smart TVs.

Today I found a YouTube video regarding a different Netflix error code (‘nw-2-5’) but, having tried everything else, I tried the suggested fix anyway (Enable Parental Controls then Disable Parental Controls then Delete Parental Controls) and then changed the DNS server address setting in the TV back to the default 192.168.1.254 for the BT Home Hub. Although the Netflix app first displays the ‘ui-113’ or ‘nw-2-5’ messages, if I retry a few times it now manages to connect to UK Netflix. After a couple of months of hassle with Netflix, that is progress.

The fix suggested in the above-mentioned YouTube video consisted of enabling then disabling and deleting BT Parental Controls via the user’s account page on the BT Web site. Even though I had never previously enabled BT Parental Controls, I logged in to the BT Web site, enabled Parental Controls, and then disabled and deleted them as per the instructions given in the aforementioned YouTube video.

So it seems that BT is either the cause of the problem or a major contributor. I suspect the blame may lie with more than one company, though, because: a) the Netflix app’s ‘ui-113’ and ‘nw-2-5’ messages occur even after I made sure BT Parental Controls really are disabled; b) it is touch and go whether the app is successful in accessing the Netflix site at the first attempt; c) other devices accessing Netflix via my home network don’t suffer from the problem. I just hope LG, Netflix and BT are working together to solve it properly, because the current situation is completely unacceptable.

Netflix – Not fit for purpose?

One of my family has a Netflix account. The account is accessible from any of the desktop and laptop computers in the house, whichever OS they are running.

Recently we bought a so-called ‘smart TV’ (an LG 40UF770V 4K Ultra HD TV, as it happens), and are pleased with it. It runs WebOS 2.0 (yay, Linux!) and the LG Content Store contains a Netflix app, which we promptly installed. The app worked perfectly for several weeks but then stopped being able to access Netflix. When the app was launched, the usual screen with the Netflix logo and the ‘Loading’ rotating indicator would appear but, after a minute or so, an error message would be displayed informing us that Netflix error ‘ui-113’ had occurred. One of the on-screen options then offered by the app was to check the network connection, which we tried, but everything was reported to be working correctly. Not to mention that all the other apps that require an Internet connection work fine. In order to watch a film using Netflix over the Christmas period we had to resort to connecting a laptop to the TV via an HDMI cable and accessing Netflix in a Web browser on the laptop. It is ridiculous to have to resort to such measures to view content on smart TVs which have Netflix apps.

I searched the Web and discovered that many, many people experience the same problem with Netflix and smart TVs. As in our case, they had no trouble accessing their Netflix account on their home network with other devices such as computers, tablets and smart phones. I came across reports by owners of smart TVs made by LG, Philips, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, and other manufacturers. People who had contacted the relevant TV manufacturer were often told the problem is caused by Netflix, and people who had contacted Netflix were often told the problem is caused by the TV manufacturer.

Netflix has a Help page for this error message, but none of the steps Netflix listed worked, and neither did any of the remedies suggested by others on the Web (including in various YouTube videos). Resetting the TV did not solve the problem. Neither did cycling the mains power to the TV, broadband modem and router (however long the power was off). Nor did changing the TV’s setting for the IP address of the DNS server to one of the well-known public DNS servers such as Google’s. Nor did suggestions such as un-installing and re-installing the Netflix app. Nor did configuring the router to perform port forwarding for Netflix on the TV (not that this should be necessary, but I tried it anyway). Several people wrote that the parental lock in their routers caused the problem, but the parental lock is definitely not enabled in my router. I also tried to access Netflix via the TV’s Web browser; it can log-in to the Netflix account but cannot play content as it does not support the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in or HTML5 required by Netflix.

Nothing we tried solved the problem, and two weeks of this messing around was exasperating. Some people reported that changing the DNS server address in the TV to Google’s DNS servers worked, whereas others reported it didn’t. Even if some lucky person managed to get Netflix working on their smart TV using a certain procedure, other people in the same country with the same model of TV could not, even if they used the same procedure.

In addition to people in a given country trying to get the Netflix app in their smart TV to access their Netflix account in that country, I came across posts by people wanting to access Netflix in a different country (mostly people not in the USA wanting to access US Netflix because it offers a wider range of films and programmes, but also expatriates wanting to access Netflix for their home country with their home-country Netflix account). So I tried recommendations to configure the TV to use a DNS server in the US that some people in the UK had recently indicated would give the Netflix app access to US Netflix rather than UK Netflix (even though we wanted to access UK Netflix from the UK). But that didn’t work either.

However, I didn’t give up. I trawled the Web for lists of DNS servers that some people claimed would give access to Netflix in the UK. I found various Web sites listing IP addresses for DNS servers and tried several of them. Eventually I found one that actually enables the Netflix app in the TV to work, but it accesses US Netflix instead of UK Netflix. Given that the Netflix app has not worked for several weeks, I’m not complaining, but it is not what we were trying to achieve (US Netflix does not provide all the UK TV series available on UK Netflix). Furthermore, according to some of the posts I’ve read, periodically you have to change the DNS server address in the TV because Netflix stops working with the existing address.

Now, I’m a technically-oriented person and it took me several hours over a two-week period to find a solution (well, a work-around). Someone with little or no IT knowledge in the same situation would be at a complete loss as to how to get their Netfix account working. In order for streaming media services to become as ubiquitous as e.g. terrestrial TV, they have to be reliable and be accessible easily to paying customers. Use of Geolocation, GeoDNS and other complex techniques should not cause such a headache to bona fide users. Someone with a Netflix account in his/her country of residence and who simply wants to access Netflix on a smart TV should not have to jump through hoops or hit a brick wall. Clearly this is happening to many people.

On top of that, people such as myself who have to travel internationally frequently because of their work need to be certain that, if they subscribe to a streaming media service, it will work in whatever country they happen to be in at the time (except if blocked by Great Firewalls or content filters on proxy servers, of course) and not be purposely or inadvertently prevented from working by the media service provider’s network concept.

I myself had considered signing up for a Netflix account so that I could view films and TV programmes during my overseas work trips, but, after having to struggle for days to help a family member access a valid Netflix account on a smart TV in the country where the account was set up, will definitely not be giving Netflix my business. In this day and age it is ridiculous that users should have to try umpteen DNS server addresses and reset TVs, routers and modems in order to access their account with a media provider. Services such as Netflix will never have my business until their networking and DRM are sorted out properly and made to work reliably. Until Netflix changes its network delivery model, its service will remain a curate’s egg in my opinion.

Downloading YouTube video or only audio

One of my favourite Linux applications is the command-line utility youtube-dl, which I use quite often to download YouTube videos or extract only the audio, either for leisure or work purposes.

Downloading a video

  1. Copy the URL of the YouTube video from the browser’s address bar. I’ll use the video ‘Como fazer um bom churrasco de Picanha‘ as an example.

  2. Ascertain the types and resolutions available for that particular video:

    $ youtube-dl -F https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BuQCD8eh9k

  3. Chose which video resolution you would like to download. For example I’ll download the highest resolution available for this particular video (Format 22, which is a 1280×720 MPEG-4 file):

    $ youtube-dl -f 22 -o Como_fazer_um_bom_churrasco_de_Picanha.mp4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BuQCD8eh9k

Extracting audio from YouTube videos

Let’s say you just want an audio file of the video’s sound track. There are several options, so I’ll just show a few simple examples here:

  1. MP3 file at default quality:

    $ youtube-dl --extract-audio --audio-format mp3 -t https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BuQCD8eh9k
    8BuQCD8eh9k: Downloading webpage

    Deleting original file Como fazer um bom churrasco de Picanha-8BuQCD8eh9k.m4a (pass -k to keep)

    You can see from the console output above that youtube-dl downloads an M4A file and then uses ffmpeg to convert it to the audio file type you specified. You can check the file’s properties:

Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Prologue

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree: 1.16.3-r1. I updated my entire installation (I ’emerged world’, in Gentoo parlance). The package eselect-opengl was one of various other packages updated as well (it was updated to Version 1.3.1-r1). Fortunately I scan the Gentoo Forums regularly and noticed the threads ‘new x11 update breaks glx‘ and ‘After xorg-server-1.16.2.901-r1 update 3D stopped working‘, so I was forewarned that a "Files" section is not allowed in more than one X Windows configuration file if an installation has more than one (e.g. /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf). The eselect-opengl ebuild was subsequently bumped to 1.3.1-r2 to display a warning to users regarding this restriction.

I’m using ~amd64 multilib and the FGLRX driver (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 GPU). Before updating, my laptop’s installation had a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and no /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory.

Before updating I cleaned up a few broken symlinks (indicated by flashing red text in Konsole) relating to the FGLRX driver — presumably left over from previous updates several years ago judging by the file dates — that I found during a cursory search:

# ls -la /usr/lib32/xorg/modules/extensions/
# rm /usr/lib32/xorg/modules/extensions/fglrx-libglx.so
# rm /usr/lib32/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
# ls -la /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/
# rm /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/FGL.renamed.libglx.so
# rm /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/fglrx-libglx.so

(There may have been other broken symlinks relating to the FGLRX driver and GLX, but I didn’t look further.)

Then I updated all packages using the Portage command ‘emerge -uvDN --keep-going world‘ as usual. After the update was complete, the contents of the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf included the following two consecutive lines:

Section "Files"
EndSection

and there is a new directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ which contained a single file 20opengl.conf with only five lines:

Section "Files"
        ModulePath "/usr/lib32/xorg/modules"
        ModulePath "/usr/lib64/opengl/ati"
        ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Heeding posts in the aforementioned two Gentoo Forums threads I deleted the above-mentioned two lines in xorg.conf and I also deleted the first ModulePath (the one with ‘lib32‘) in 20opengl.conf. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual. (I subsequently discovered it is not necessary to delete that ModulePath in my case, as there are no longer any files in /usr/lib32/xorg/modules and its subdirectories in my case.)

So everything was good. Well, not quite. Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.

AIGLX error message

The contents of log file Xorg.0.log included the following error message:

(EE) AIGLX error: failed to open /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so, error[/usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]

Despite the error message, AIGLX was working, but I resolved to get rid of the message anyway by creating a symlink for the missing file mentioned in the message:

# ls /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules
extensions
# mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/dri/
# ls -la /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so

685665 drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Jan 22 22:29 ..

Now there is no error message and functionality has not been affected:

# grep -i GLX /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Touchpad

In looking through /var/log/Xorg.0.log I noticed some messages (not all contiguous) relating to the touchpad which indicated there were other problems:

[    31.940] (**) |-->Input Device "SynapticsTouchpad"

[    41.282] (II) UnloadModule: "synaptics"

The touchpad was working fine, but I didn’t understand why the synaptics module was being loaded twice, then unloaded. Also, the message about an undetectable ‘protocol’ indicated a problem.

Now, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, previously my installation did not have the directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and there was only the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Below is what xorg.conf contained before I updated:

The only mention of a ‘protocol’ in xorg.conf was the line:

Option	    "Protocol" "auto-dev"

Searching the Web soon showed me that auto-dev is obsolete (Debian Bug report #649003 – xserver-xorg-input-synaptics: Option “Protocol” “auto-dev” does not work anymore – documentation needs fixing), so I simply deleted that line from xorg.conf. Another error message eliminated, but several more to go.

I knew that, since Version 1.8 (I believe that was the release), X Windows allows the use of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf files instead of, or as well as, /etc/X11/xorg.conf as a means of configuring X Windows (see e.g. Gentoo Xorg-server 1.8 Upgrade Guide).

As my latest installation update had resulted in the creation of the directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, I decided to move the touchpad configuration from the xorg.conf file to a new file in that directory, and therefore I created the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf containing the following:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"

However the log file Xorg.0.log still contained messages such as the following:

[    41.535] (**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "evdev touchpad catchall"

Notice that I had named the InputClass "touchpad" in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf, not "evdev touchpad catchall", so I began to wonder if X Windows configuration files existed in other directories and were also being parsed by X Windows. I searched and found three in the directory /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/:

# ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
10-evdev.conf  10-quirks.conf  50-synaptics.conf

These three files contained, respectively, the following:

Looking at the InputClass section names and the messages in Xorg.0.log, the penny dropped: X Windows uses all the configuration files it finds in the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/,  /etc/X11/ and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directories. I had not realised this before; I had simply assumed X Windows only uses configuration files in the latter two directories (I should have looked more closely in Xorg.0.log, as it mentions /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/). So I did the following:

1.  Deleted the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf (my laptop does not have a clickpad, so I don’t need the sections relating to a clickpad anyway).

2.  Modified the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf to contain the parts of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf that stop X Windows assuming the touchpad is a mouse (udev detects it as a mouse in addition to detecting it as a touchpad):

 
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"

        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
        Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
        Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "on"
        Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"
        Option "CircularScrolling" "on"
        Option "CircScrollTrigger" "0"
        Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ" "40"
        Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinW" "8"
        Option "CoastingSpeed" "0"
        Option "FingerLow" "35"
        Option "FingerHigh" "40"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad ignore duplicates"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
        Option "Ignore" "on"
EndSection

Notice that I also changed the Identifier of the first section from “touchpad” to “touchpad catchall”, although I could have left it as it was.

Note that the following pair of messages in the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log do not worry me, as I believe they indicate that an InputClass section named "touchpad ignore duplicates" in an X Windows configuration file made X Windows ignore udev when it detected the touchpad again, this time as a mouse instead of a touchpad. As X Windows has already loaded the synaptics module for the touchpad device /dev/input/event5 (it could be a different event number in your case), it is therefore correct to make the synaptics driver ignore /dev/input/mouse*.

[    41.581] (II) config/udev: Adding input device SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad (/dev/input/mouse0)
[    41.581] (**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Ignoring device from InputClass "touchpad ignore duplicates"

3.  Moved the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf and edited it to contain the following:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev pointer catchall"
        MatchIsPointer "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev tablet catchall"
        MatchIsTablet "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev touchscreen catchall"
        MatchIsTouchscreen "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Note that I removed the section "evdev touchpad catchall" because I believe its purpose is already covered by the section "touchpad catchall" in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf.

Actually, as my laptop does not have a tablet connected and neither does it have a touchscreen, I could also have removed the last two sections, but I left them in as they would do no harm.

4.  Checked in the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log which modules loaded by /etc/X11/xorg.conf are loaded anyway, and therefore do not need to be included in xorg.conf:

$ grep extmod /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[ 30.773] (II) LoadModule: "extmod"
[ 30.773] (II) Module "extmod" already built-in

$ grep i2c /var/log/Xorg.0.log

[ 35.421] (II) LoadModule: "ddc"

$ grep \"dri\" /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[ 31.175] (II) LoadModule: "dri"
[ 31.175] (II) Module "dri" already built-in

$ grep glx /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[ 30.775] (II) "glx" will be loaded. This was enabled by default and also specified in the config file.
[ 31.175] (II) LoadModule: "glx"
[ 31.175] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/opengl/ati/extensions/libglx.so
[ 31.193] (II) Module glx: vendor="Advanced Micro Devices, Inc."

The module vbe was the only one being loaded exclusively because of a Load command in the xorg.conf file.

5.  Edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf to: a) remove the unecessary loading of those modules that are already being loaded; b) remove the section relating to the touchpad, as I had moved it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Main Layout"
        Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Module"
        Load  "vbe"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option      "AllowMouseOpenFail" "true"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
        Option      "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
        Option      "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
        Option      "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Driver      "fglrx"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
        Device      "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Monitor     "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth    24
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
        Mode         0666
EndSection

According to the xorg.conf(5) manual page:

Option “AllowMouseOpenFail”boolean

This tells the mousedrv(4) and vmmouse(4) drivers to not report failure if the mouse device can’t be opened/initialised. It has no effect on the evdev(4) or other drivers. Default: false.

so I left the section ServerFlags in xorg.conf, as the global X.Org Server option "AllowMouseOpenFail" does no harm. I could have deleted it, though.

6.  I left /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-quirks.conf as it was, because there is nothing in it that relates to the specific hardware in my laptop. I could have just deleted the file.

Outcome

Now that I have removed the superflous X windows configuration files with some duplicate sections, /var/log/Xorg.0.log no longer contains duplicate messages relating to the touchpad and evdev. As I have also removed superflous module-loading commands from xorg.conf, there are also no longer any messages regarding already-loaded modules or the unloading of a module. And my removal of the obsolete auto-dev protocol option also eliminated the error message regarding an undetectable protocol and the PreInit error message. The file Xorg.0.log in my installation now looks like this:

The Xorg.0.log file is now cleaner, and I noticed a tiny improvement (I estimate a couple of seconds) in the loading of X Windows when the laptop starts up. Although there has been no change in video and touchpad functionality as far as I can tell, tidying up and removing redundant and incorrect X Windows configuration lines was a worthwhile exercise as I learned something in the process.

You will notice that no keyboard layout and variant are specified in any X Windows configuration file listed above. This laptop has an English (UK) keyboard layout, but sometimes I use it with external USB keyboards having English (UK), English (US), Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish (Spain) layouts. As the laptop runs KDE, I had already configured KDE to allow me to toggle between the four keyboard layouts and so did not need to configure X Windows for the keyboard layout. However, on machines running Linux with desktop environments that do not have such a facility I add a file with a name such as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/15-keyboard.conf containing the following to suit my particular requirements:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "yes"
        Option "XkbLayout" "gb,us,br,es"
        Option "XkbVariant" "pc104"
        Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
EndSection

As the last option suggests, pressing Alt+Shift would toggle between the layouts specified.

Audio in Linux becomes annoying again

At the moment I seem to be having more audio problems than usual. Last month I blogged about having to fix the ALSA Speaker volume level resetting to zero at boot, and recently two other audio problems have cropped up.

Thunderbird

I have been having trouble with Thunderbird’s ‘system sound’ that announces the arrival of a new e-mail. Lately, Thunderbird has started playing too loud and with significant distortion the audio clip it had been playing perfectly for the last four years. This is especially strange because I created that audio clip with Audacity from another audio clip that sounded too loud when Thunderbird played it. Ironically, the work-around for this latest problem was to switch to the original, much louder sound clip alert.wav instead of the quieter alert_quiet.wav. Not only does Thunderbird now play alert.wav at a lower volume than alert_quiet.wav, but the sound of alert.wav is not distorted when Thunderbird plays it. Yet if I play alert.wav and alert_quiet.wav using SMPlayer, the former is much louder than the latter and neither is distorted. Figure that one out.

The event notification sound that Thunderbird uses to remind me about an impending meeting scheduled in the calendar has now started sounding very distorted too. I still have not found a work-around for that. Event sounds played by the desktop environment I use (KDE) are not distorted, so what is Thunderbird doing? Perhaps the problem is not Thunderbird itself but the audio library it uses, so I need to investigate further.

Skype

Yet another audio problem cropped up this morning when I connected my laptop to an external monitor and keyboard (and thus I left the laptop’s lid almost closed) in an open-plan office and booted the laptop. I entered my username and password on the KDM log-in screen, and the KDE splash screen appeared as usual. After a few seconds the laptop’s speakers suddenly emitted a piercing, continuous howl; the well-known sound of audio feedback from speakers to microphone. It was LOUD. The volume control buttons on the keyboard made no difference, and the sound was so loud that everyone in the office noticed and several people came over to tell me to reset the BIOS (apparently that had fixed the problem for their laptops running Windows).

I kept my finger on the laptop’s power switch and, after several seconds, the laptop powered off. My laptop dual boots Windows 7 and Gentoo Linux, and the audio feedback did not occur when I booted Windows 7. After booting Linux again a couple of times and annoying everyone in the office even more, I discovered I could open the laptop’s lid far enough back to reduce the feedback to a low whine, so I could let KDE finish launching and display the Desktop. I then launched ALSAMixer and discovered that ‘Internal Mic Boost’ was set to 100%. So I immediately lowered it to zero. Then the penny dropped: I had used Skype the previous night without bothering to connect my headphones and external microphone, and Skype had automatically raised ‘Internal Mic Boost’ all the way up to 100%. So I immediately launched Skype, selected ‘Options’ > ‘Sound Devices’ and unticked ‘Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels’. The next thing I did was add the following lines to the script /etc/local.d/20set_alsa_volume.start mentioned in my previous blog post Fix for ALSA Speaker volume level resetting to zero at boot:

su -c "amixer -c 0 -- sset 'Internal Mic Boost' 0%" -s /bin/sh fitzcarraldo
su -c "amixer -c 0 -- sset 'Internal Mic' 0%" -s /bin/sh fitzcarraldo
su -c "amixer -c 0 -- sset 'Mic Boost' 0%" -s /bin/sh fitzcarraldo
su -c "amixer -c 0 -- sset 'Mic' 0%" -s /bin/sh fitzcarraldo

From now on, only I am allowed to adjust microphone settings! To avoid any possibility of feedback loops in future, the above-mentioned script sets all the microphone channels to zero and I will have to adjust them myself before use. I already have ALSAMixerGUI in the KDE Launcher menu, so it won’t be a big deal to do that.

This fiasco with Skype got me thinking: if Skype is set to automatically adjust mixer levels when you are in a conversation, when you exit Skype why doesn’t it automatically set mixer levels back to the way they were when Skype was launched? It could be done easily and would be more user-friendly than the current way Skype works.

Interrelationship between PulseAudio and ALSA

The final thing I did (yet again) was to adjust all the various ALSA channels and PulseAudio channels to try and get the resulting audio input and output sounding reasonable. This is easier said than done. I often have to mess around with ALSAMixer and PulseAudio Volume Control in order to get audio input and output working satisfactorily in all applications that use audio. It is actually more difficult than it sounds (ouch!) to get ALSA and PulseAudio ‘balanced’ (for want of a better word). In the days before PulseAudio existed, one only had to adjust ALSA. Now, with two agents controlling audio, the task turns out to be surprisingly awkward sometimes.

To sum up, boo to Thunderbird (or whatever it uses to play sounds), boo to Skype and boo to PulseAudio. I’m fed up with audio issues in Linux at the moment.😡

Update (January 19, 2015): It turns out that the problem in Thunderbird was due to PulseAudio. See my next post for details of how I fixed it.

WebRTC – A viable alternative to Skype

webrtc_logoSkype for Linux 4.3 and upwards requires the use of PulseAudio, which has caused discontent amongst those Linux users who do not use PulseAudio. Although I do use PulseAudio, I recently found out about WebRTC, an API (application programming interface) for browser-based communication offering most of the functions provided by Skype, namely: voice calling, video chat, text chat, file sharing and screen sharing. The official WebRTC site states:

WebRTC is a free, open project that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple JavaScript APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose.

Our mission: To enable rich, high quality, RTC applications to be developed in the browser via simple JavaScript APIs and HTML5.

WebRTC was originally released by Google but is now a draft standard of the World Wide Web Consortium, and is supported by Chrome, Firefox and Opera browsers. Several commercial Web sites offer WebRTC-based communications to fee-paying customers, but I thought I would try WebRTC by using one of the so-called ‘demo’ WebRTC pages. AppRTC is a WebRTC demo page which can be reached from a link on the official WebRTC site, but I prefer Multi-Party WebRTC Demo by TokBox which offers a more polished experience with better features. Both are free to use and viable substitutes to Skype for video chatting (one-to-one or conference).

So, how do you actually use WebRTC-based sites? Below is a quick guide to get you going.

Text and video chatting

Open the following URL in Chrome or Firefox:

https://opentokrtc.com/

Enter a Room Name that is likely to be unique. I used ‘fitzchat’ (without the quotes), but you can use any name you want.

The other party or parties can do the same thing, i.e. they enter the same Room Name as you, and you will all become connected.

Alternatively, to send an e-mail invitation to someone, click on the URL at the top of the pane on the right-hand side (which is Invite: https://opentokrtc.com/fitzchat in this example, as I chose to name the Room ‘fitzchat’). The partially visible pane at the right-hand side of the browser window will slide into full view when you click on it.

That’s all there is to it. You should see a video window showing each party, and they should see the same. Each party should also be able to hear the other parties. In the top right-hand corner of each video window is an icon (microphone for you; speaker for each of the other parties) which you can click on to mute/un-mute that party.

Click on the partially visible pane at the right-hand side of the browser window. Notice the ‘chat bar’ at the bottom where you enter commands and chat text. Read the grey instructions listed near the top of the pane:

Welcome to OpenTokRTC by TokBox
Type /nick your_name to change your name
Type /list to see list of users in the room
Type /help to see a list of commands
Type /hide to hide chat bar
Type /focus to lead the group
Type /unfocus to put everybody on equal standing

For example, to give myself a meaningful name instead of the default username Guest-0120e48c which was given to me automatically, I entered the following:

           /nick Fitz

Screen sharing

I found that screen sharing already works well in Chrome 36.0.1985.125 but is not yet supported in Firefox 31.0. It will be supported in Firefox 32 or 33, apparently, or you can already use Firefox Nightly providing you add the appropriate preferences via about:config.

To be able to share screens in Chrome, I had to perform two steps: enable a Chrome flag and install a Chrome extension. The two steps, which do not need to be repeated, are given below (see Ref. 1).

To enable screen sharing in Chrome, do the following:

  1. Open a new tab or window in Chrome.
  2. Copy the following link: chrome://flags/#enable-usermedia-screen-capture and paste it in the location bar.
  3. Click on the ‘Enable’ link below ‘Enable screen capture support in getUserMedia().’ at the very top of the screen.
  4. Click on the ‘Relaunch Now’ button at the bottom of the page to restart Chrome.

To install the screen sharing extension in Chrome, do the following:

  1. Launch Chrome and click on the Menu icon.
  2. Click on ‘Settings’.
  3. Click on ‘Extensions’.
  4. Click on ‘Get more extensions’ and search for ‘webrtc’.
  5. Download ‘WebRTC Desktop Sharing’.
  6. This places an icon to the right of the URL bar in Chrome.

To share your screen or just a window, do the following in Chrome:

  1. Click on the ‘Share Desktop’ icon to the right of the URL bar and select either ‘Screen’ or the window you wish to share.
  2. Click ‘Share’.
  3. When sharing has started in a new Chrome window, select the URL of the relevant tab in that window and send it to the other parties via the chat pane on the right-hand side of the first browser window.

To stop sharing, click on ‘Stop sharing’ and click on the ‘Share Desktop’ icon to the right of the URL bar to get it to return to displaying the ‘Share Desktop’ icon instead of the || (Pause) icon.

File sharing

I did not bother to try file sharing using WebRTC, but there are various Web sites you can use to do that. One such is ShareDrop, and googling will find others.

Caveats

Chrome 36.0.1985.125 and Firefox 31.0 were used in this trial (I did not try Opera). I found that video chat worked faultlessly when both parties were using Chrome, and when both parties were using Firefox. However, when one of the parties was using Firefox and the other was using Chrome, I could not see myself in one of the video boxes in the browser window (although I could see the other party in the other video box in the browser window). Furthermore, there was a grey bar across the middle of the video images in the AppRTC demo, whereas the Multi-Party WebRTC Demo video images were normal. Other than those two issues, the experience was smooth and straightforward. My recommendation would therefore be to use Multi-Party WebRTC Demo and for all the parties to use the same browser, be it Chrome or Firefox. If you want to share your screen or a window, the logical choice at the moment would be Chrome.

1 LiveMinutes Blog – Beta Testers: How To Activate Screen Sharing!

UPDATE (January 2, 2015): Mozilla has added a button to Firefox 34 to provide account-free video chat using WebRTC. Mozilla calls this feature ‘Firefox Hello’.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/where-firefox-hello-button

I have it in Firefox 34.0.5 (I had to drag the ‘Hello’ button from ‘Customise’ | ‘Additional Tools and Features’). It works quite well. I didn’t bother creating an account; I just clicked on the ‘Email’ button to e-mail the automatically-generated URL to someone, and he clicked on the URL in the e-mail he received, which launched Firefox on his laptop and rang Firefox on my laptop. We tried both video and audio-only conversations, and both worked well. Firefox Hello is not as polished as Skype but, if Mozilla keeps working on it, they could end up with a good product.

Installing and using the Pipelight browser plug-in with Firefox 30 for Linux

pipelight-logoI use Gentoo Linux (~amd64) on my main laptop. Although I do not use Netflix or any of the other streaming video services that require the Microsoft Silverlight browser plug-in, I do need to use a browser with the Silverlight plug-in to access an office Intranet site. So I was interested in installing the Pipelight plug-in.

Although Pipelight works with most of the Silverlight test sites I have found on the Web, I cannot get it to work with the above-mentioned office Intranet site, which is why I ended up installing Firefox for Windows and Silverlight in WINE (see my previous post). Anyway, below I explain how I installed and configured Pipelight 0.2.7.1 and Firefox 30.0 for Linux. Even if you use a different Linux distribution to me, almost all of this post will still be relevant; only the package installation commands will differ.

Google Chrome 34 and onwards does not support NPAPI, so Pipelight does not work any more with Chrome. Actually, Mozilla has disabled some NPAPI support by default in Firefox 30: with the exception of the Flash plug-in you have to explicitly give permission for plug-ins to be activated via Click-to-Activate (also known as Click-to-Play). You can configure how Firefox Click-to-Activate behaves via Open menu > Add-ons > Plugins (choose either ‘Ask to Activate’, ‘Always Activate’ or ‘Never Activate’). See ‘Issues related to plugins – 4.1 Click to Play in Mozilla browser versions 23 and above‘ on the mozillaZine Website and ‘How to always activate a plugin for a trusted website‘ on the Mozilla Support Website.

I updated an existing Pipelight ebuild so that it will install the latest version of Pipelight (0.2.7.1) via a Portage local overlay. You can download the new ebuild from Gentoo Bugzilla Bug Report No. 481596 (see Comment 40). I can only get it to merge by using the binary-pluginloader USE flag. [Update August 18, 2014: The package is now in the main Portage tree, at least for ~amd64]

Installation

Install Firefox if it has not already been installed:

root # emerge firefox

Install Pipelight (installation fails unless I disable binary-pluginloader):

root # USE="-binary-pluginloader" emerge pipelight

Install WINE with the Compholio patches:

root # USE="pipelight" emerge wine

As you can see below, I have wine-1.7.21 and pipelight-0.7.2.1 installed.

Now update the dependency-installer script and enable the plug-in:

user $ sudo pipelight-plugin --update # sudo has to be used for this command only.
user $ pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight

Applies to AMD ATI GPUs only: My main laptop has an AMD ATI HD 5850 GPU, and hardware acceleration causes Firefox to hang when the Pipelight plug-in is enabled, so I have to disable hardware acceleration:

user $ cp /usr/share/pipelight/configs/pipelight-silverlight5.1 ~/.config/

Edit the Pipelight configuration file:

user $ nano ~/.config/pipelight-silverlight5.1

In order to force GPU acceleration uncomment the line:
overwriteArg = enableGPUAcceleration=true

In order to disable GPU acceleration (even if your graphic driver is probably supported) uncomment the line:
overwriteArg = enableGPUAcceleration=false

Instead of disabling GPU hardware acceleration in the Pipelight configuration file (pipelight-silverlight5.1), I could have instead done it each time I launch Firefox by entering the following command:

user $ PIPELIGHT_GPUACCELERATION=0 firefox

But I prefer to be able to enter just the following command:

user $ firefox

or to launch Firefox from the as-installed entry for Firefox in the Desktop Environment’s launcher menu.

After launching Firefox for the first time, a series of pop-up windows will show that the Silverlight plug-in is being installed. Once the final pop-up window has closed, install the Firefox extension User Agent Overrider (do not install User Agent Switcher or any other user agent selection extension for Firefox), click on the down-arrow of the User Agent Overrider icon in Firefox and select ‘Windows / Firefox 29’ from the pull-down menu. I also selected ‘Preferences…’ and added another user agent string to the end of the list:

# Custom
Windows / Firefox 15: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120427 Firefox/15.0a1

Check that the plug-in is installed correctly

Enter about:plugins in the Firefox Address bar to check which plug-ins are installed, their version and current state.

Use the Pipelight diagnostic page to check the plug-in is working.

Pipelight options

To see what commands the Pipelight plug-in supports, enter the following command in a Konsole/Terminal window:

user $ pipelight-plugin --help

Bypassing a corporate Web filter when using the command line

or ‘How to bypass a corporate Web filter and download YouTube videos via the command line’

One of the offices where I work uses a Web filter to block access to certain sites, such as YouTube. However, sometimes it is necessary to view blocked Web sites for work purposes. For example, these days a lot of companies or individuals post product reviews on YouTube that are useful for work purposes. In such cases I have used Tor to access the blocked sites in a Web browser such as Firefox, Chrome, Konqueror etc. See my post How to install and use Tor for anonymous browsing or to access country-restricted content from another country for details of how to set up and use Tor with a Web browser.

But sometimes I need to access blocked Web sites from the command line. For example, today I needed to download a YouTube video for work purposes, and I wanted to use youtube-dl to do it. The solution was simple…

First I launched vidalia and polipo as explained in the above-mentioned post on Tor, then I launched another Konsole/Terminal window and entered the commands shown below:

$ # First find out what resolutions are available for the video I want to download:
$ youtube-dl -F https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3Rr4CUoTSQ
Setting language
T3Rr4CUoTSQ: Downloading webpage
T3Rr4CUoTSQ: Downloading video info webpage
T3Rr4CUoTSQ: Extracting video information

140 m4a audio only DASH audio , audio@128k (worst)
160 mp4 192p DASH video
133 mp4 240p DASH video
134 mp4 360p DASH video
135 mp4 480p DASH video
136 mp4 720p DASH video

36 3gp 320x240
5 flv 400x240
43 webm 640x360
18 mp4 640x360
22 mp4 1280x720 (best)
$ # Now try to download the video at the resolution I want:
$ youtube-dl -f 22 -o Clevo_W230ST_overview.flv https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3Rr4CUoTSQ
Setting language
T3Rr4CUoTSQ: Downloading webpage
T3Rr4CUoTSQ: Downloading video info webpage
T3Rr4CUoTSQ: Extracting video information
ERROR: unable to download video data: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden

As you can see above, the corporate Web filter blocked youtube-dl from downloading the video.

So I informed the shell session about the local HTTP proxy (polipo) running on my laptop, by assigning and exporting the environment variable http_proxy using the following syntax:

export http_proxy=http://server-ip:port/

which in my case meant the following (refer to my article on Tor):

$ export http_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:8123/

and then I was able to download the video from YouTube despite the corporate Web filter:

$ youtube-dl -f 22 -o Clevo_W230ST_overview.flv https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3Rr4CUoTSQ

Can Linux cope with 24 Hours of Happy?

I enjoyed Pharrell Williams’ feel-good songs in ‘Despicable Me‘ and its sequel, ‘Despicable Me 2‘. ‘Happy‘, a very catchy ditty he wrote for the sequel, also features in the World’s first 24-hour-long music video, ‘24 Hours of Happy‘, shot in and around Los Angeles and released on 21 November last year. The song is played a total of 360 times over the duration of the video, each 4-minute take featuring a different person or persons dancing (improvised) along streets, in petrol stations, through Union Station, in a church, around a school, in a moving school bus, around a supermarket, in a bowling alley, and so on. Each 4-minute performance was filmed in one take using Steadicam, and the location at the end of each take segues into the next take. You see the sun rise; you see the bright sunlight of the morning and the warm sunlight of the afternoon; you see the sun set; you see the twinkling city lights at night. The concept is simple yet brilliant.

Clips from some of the takes were used to create the 4-minute official music video for ‘Happy’, so you can watch that on YouTube to get a flavour of the takes, although it does not do justice to the full video.

Williams appears in a different take every hour on the hour, and a few other takes have celebrity cameos, but the vast majority of the participants are unknown extras of all ages, races, shapes, sizes and looks. To quote Williams talking to the Los Angeles Times: “We wanted all humanity in there, not just the model-types you might expect.” Some are good dancers, others not so good. But they all have one thing in common: they’re having fun, so they look good. The joy is infectious, and I found myself watching far longer than I would have expected, having to return to the site again and again. Half the fun is watching the bystanders.

When you open the ’24 Hours of Happy’ site, the take that was in progress at the current time of day starts playing from the beginning. However, you can drag the pointer around the clock dial and watch any take from the 24-hour period. There are also buttons you can click on to jump between takes or to jump to each take featuring Williams. The yellow on-screen controls can be made to disappear by not moving the mouse pointer for 5 seconds.

The Web site is well-designed and fun to use, so I was not surprised it was voted ‘Site of the Month‘ and ‘Site of the Year Users’ Choice‘ by AWWWARDS, and voted ‘Site of the Month‘ and ‘Site of the Year‘ by TheFWA.

It’s impossible to list them all, but a few of my favourite takes are:

01:36  Very perky woman with ponytail.
05:28  Jogger who has to keep pulling his shorts up!
08:24  Woman on roller skates.
09:52  Very cute little girl.
09:56  Woman with some groovy moves.
10:40  Woman in Union Station. Some of the bystanders are particularly amusing.
11:16  Man with cast on foot.
11:20  Boy with an Afro.
11:36  Three groovy old ladies.
11:44  Chubby guy with style.
12:36  Woman with some groovy moves.
13:32  Dancing couple in pink.
14:20  Two cool guys in dinner jackets inside and outside Union Station.
15:00  Pharrell Williams in a church with a gospel choir.
19:04  Woman with a lizard puppet. The lizard does the lip-synching!
19:36  Guy on stilts.
23:40  Woman with LED hula hoop (love it!).

Obviously I think ’24 Hours of Happy’ is fabulous, but why am I discussing it in a blog predominantly about Linux? Because Firefox 27.0.1 (32-bit) running in Windows 8.1 (64-bit) on my new Acer Aspire XC-600 micro-tower PC (dual-core Intel Pentium G2030 @ 3 GHz & 3 MB cache, 4 GB DDR3 RAM) handles ’24 Hours of Happy’ at 720p with ease, but the story is very different on my main laptop running 64-bit Gentoo Linux with KDE (quad-core Intel Core i7 720QM @ 933 MHz & 6 MB cache, 4 GB DDR3 RAM). Both machines are on my home network, connected to the Internet via high-bandwidth broadband (FTTC).

On my laptop, the latest available versions of Firefox (27.0) and Opera (12.16_p1860-r1) for Gentoo, both 64-bit, do not even complete loading the ’24 Hours of Happy’ site: the black progress bar at the bottom of the home page stops about 7/8th of the way across the page and the KDE Network Monitor widget shows there is no network activity. Clearing Firefox’s Web content cache or increasing the cache’s size to 1 GB make no difference. Konqueror 4.12.2 (configured to use the WebKit browser engine rather than the KHTML engine) loads the site and plays it quite well at 720p to start with, but eventually video becomes choppy and I notice a lot of spawned kio_http processes. The KDE Network Monitor widget shows a continuous 3600 Kib/s data stream, which does not stop when I exit Konqueror. Numerous kio_http processes are spawned and remain after I exit Konqueror, and the 3600 KiB/s activity on the network only ceases when I kill all the kio_http processes. The number of spawned kio_http processes increases if I drag the pointer around the clock to select different takes, and the page just displays ‘LOADING’ ad infinitum if I do this several times. To be fair, if I do this a lot in Firefox running in Windows 8.1, I can get Firefox to stall too. I thought I’d try a lightweight browser and installed NetSurf (3.0-r1), but that couldn’t even render the title on the home page, let alone begin to load the video.

So, does ’24 Hours of Happy’ play nicely in your Linux installation? If it does, what hardware, distribution, desktop environment, browser and quality (360p, 480p, 720p or 1080p) are you using?
