Quick tip: streaming with VLC 2.x.x

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDYou probably know that VLC can do streaming. I recently tried to use it as a streaming server for VLC Direct Pro Free, and noticed a few gothcas:
  • to get the "http" interface in VLC , you have to build it with lua=on (why? Because somewhere in the 2.x.x line, the http interface was rewritten in lua)
  • to enable access to the http interface from other machines than localhost, you will have to edit the file
    and enable access for your ip ranges in there (look at the lines that are commented out)
After that, the setup documented on the VLC Direc Pro Free web site should work.

Quick tip: using a built-in USB card reader

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDSo you have a built in card reader (for SD cards, CF cards and others) in your FreeBSD machine. But the card reader can't be used, because it doesn't detect (or signal to the operating system) when a card is inserted?
Here is a way: insert a card, thenturn off and on again power to the card reader, the check /var/log/messages to see if the card shows up. Find the correct device:
root@kg-v2# usbconfig -u 1 -a 2
ugen1.2: <USB 2.0 Reader Generic> at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON
power off, the on

root@kg-v2# usbconfig -u 1 -a 2 power_off
root@kg-v2# usbconfig -u 1 -a 2 power_on
That''s it.

FreeBSDFor people interested in FreeBSD: the auditdistd project is now complete.
The auditdistd daemon nicely complements the audit framework. It allows one to distribute audit records collected locally with minimal latency to another system. This helps in postmortem analysis, as we know that at least to some point in time audit logs stored on a separate machine can be trusted. This is very important, because once the system is compromised, we cannot trust any of its local files.

First seen on the FreeBSD Forums.
