    Does anyone know how to get flash to work in cinema on linux? It says that flash could not be found. libflashplayer.so is currently located in /etc/alternatives/ and /opt/mint-flashplugin-11/. Do i need to move it in a special folder or can i configure cinema to look in these folders?

    I haven't bothered to test this yet as I figured I should wait until the Linux client is closer to release. I am also not very accustom to the Linux environment. If you're able to get it working, I'd be interested to hear your solution so I can add it to the workshop FAQ. You may want to try searching for how to get Flash working for Awesomium on Linux; that's essentially what you're trying to do.

    Another update, this was requested a long time ago. I've added a cinema_queue_mode convar which supports two values:
    1 = Videos may be voted up or down (default)
    2 = Videos are played in the order they're requested (chronological, voting disabled)

    Chronological queue (cinema_queue_mode 2)

    Windows doesn't use a lib. It uses a series of DLLs instead.
    Also, GMod has a lot of issues on Linux currently, so I don't know if it would even work with its current state.

    Dynamically-Linked Library

    A shared object(libflashplayer.so) is the Linux equivalent.

    I feel stupid now... But regardless, libflashplayer, the Linux Library, isn't used in Windows. The equivalent would be in Windows/SysWOW64/Macromed on 64-bit Windows and Windows/system32/Macromed on 32-bit Windows AFAIK, if the user installed Flash for Other Browsers.

    Weird text rendering issue is likely something on YouTube's side, or awesomium.

    That does look a bit odd...Does it affect video viewing at all?

    It's a YouTube text annotation. So, not really anything important.

    Updated Cinema on workshop. I've added localization support and fixed a few small bugs. :)



    Thanks to ptown2 for adding Spanish translations. If anyone is interested in helping translate the gamemode, please go here: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/f...0587165565470/

    For the Linux users who are having troubles getting flash to work, a user by the name Sapd figured it out and posted the solution here.

    A few suggestions:
    Blacklist videos (saves blacklisted videos to a text file)
    Blacklist video name partials
    Blacklist player from requesting videos in a public theater

    When you say, "Blacklist player from requesting videos in a public theater," what exactly do you mean?

    Player X requests numerous videos in the public theaters that get blacklisted, is asked to stop requesting those videos (say racheal black videos) and continues to do so. An admin decides to blacklist them from requesting videos in public theaters (essentially blocking them from using the request command in a public theater) but they can still request videos in private theaters.

    So a Public Theater only Blacklist?

    It's certainly possible, I'd have to think about whether or not I want to implement it though. There's a hook I added a while ago which allows for video request filtering, you can check it out here: https://github.com/pixeltailgames/ci...v_hooks.lua#L7

    Oh, awesome. That is exactly what I need to make it work. I still think it'd be a cool thing to be added, but I'm gunna make it work on my server.

    Edit:
    Is there a way to check when the theater has stopped playing a video? Like when the queue is empty and the last one stopped? Trying to make a mysql Now Playing system and that's all that needs to be done now. Doesn't seem like it's calling PostPlayVideo at that point.
    I figured this out by modifying the gamemode code, but would like to know if theres a way to do so without modifying gamemode files themselves (as with the other thing I can call a hook)

    Edit 2:
    New idea for cinema_queue_mode: 3 - Plays by order requested but allows admins/theater owners to move videos up and down in the queue

    Also, now that I have the blacklist system working (allows blacklist of videos while playing and a way to do it with the type and data values from when a video plays, eg. type: youtube data: dm30aha2), would anyone be interested in me releasing it? It's not the greatest and I'm sure it could be done better but it works without issue.

    Actually, probably gunna do a bit more to it before I do release it if I do. Gotta make a way to blacklist videos without having to know the data (eg via the full url)

    Edit 3: (aka the "I don't like double posting" edit)
    It seems cinema_queue_mode 2 (where it does it in order of request) does it in reverse. The latest request first, then in reverse order.

    Haven't posted any updates here in a while, figured I'd share some progress with the gamemode recently. Cinema is now available in Russian, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Finnish, and Italian.



    This is something I'm extremely happy with. I added Google Analytics into the video search page about a month ago and found out that there were a lot of non-American players (more so than I would have guessed). Here are some other interesting stats I've gathered.

    Popularity of selected video services to search; sample size of 17 days


    Visits per webpage; over one month sample size (http://cinema.pixeltailgames.com/)
    Notice that the flash page is over 2% of all views, this is consistent with the Steam software survey if I recall correctly.


    Popular country/state visitors


    These are most of the more interesting stats which I'm able to collect. I'll post more if there is anything else I find interesting.

    Does anyone know how to stream .mp4 files? I know it can be done on PlayX, but I can't figure out how to do it with Cinema.

    I tried messing around in this with a friend and sound simply does not work. The video will load and play but no sounds comes from it. Flash is updated, Garry's Mod sound is fully upped in the volume mixer and in Garry's mod itself.

    I saw no errors in the console so I'm confused as to why it doesn't play sound at all.

    Checkout the FAQ. Specifically "I can see the video, but I can't hear anything. How do I fix this?"

    I have been frequenting the WZ cinema server in recent days but it has since disappeared from the server browser. On this server they had 2 NPCs stood behind the counter, one selling popcorn and the other was a shop to customise your chracter. Any idea how they did this? Were they using a custom version of the map?

    They made 2 NPCs that opened Menus when you hit "Use" (E) on them using Lua. That's how they did it. You don't have to have a custom map to do this.

    You don't have Cinema installed correctly.

    Hello,

    I am currently unable to watch videos in the Gmod Cinema servers because Flash is not detected. I'm on Mac OS X Mountain Lion, and I have not been able to solve this whatsoever. I've tried various tutorials that are supposed to solve my problem (1, 2, 3), all of which don't. I've reached out to multiple people in hopes of solving this, but I have yet for it to get solved. Are there any solutions to this other than the ones posted in these tutorials? I would really love to get back to the cinema servers.

    Edit: I forgot to mention this. When I go to request a video from YouTube in the in-game browser, it of course says I need to download flash at the top. When I click on that, it brings me to the download page, which interestingly tells me "Your system: Windows 32-bit, English, Chrome", when I am in fact on OS X Mountain Lion, not in any sort of VM.

    Thanks.

    There seems to be a problem with vimeo videos, where players entering the theater won't automatically seek to the current position in the video. It's as though seeking fails because the video hasn't buffered yet, and all they see is a black screen with the vimeo "buffering" bar at the bottom.

    Using the admin menu to manually seek the video (to roughly where it's already playing) usually fixes the problem for the newcomers.

    Yeah, I'm aware of the issue, but I haven't had time to debug it enough. It seems to fix itself if a player refreshes the theater.

    I would love the possibility to log video requests. I have noticed there is a sv_log.lua file which seems to be made for logging into a database, but I was unable to find any instructions on how to make it work or configure the database details anywhere. So is there currently any option to log video requests easily?

    EDIT: Nevermind, made my own using the PostVideoQueued hook.

    Let's say I wanna make a map that also supports this gamemode, what do I add exactly for the screens? Or what is needed in the hammer editor to make a map that supports this? I know how to map, just dunno how to do the screens and what else Cinema gamemode needs in a map to work properly.

    Im sorry for bumping this, but is there a way to enable like a sandbox mode on this? as in you can still spawn props and things like in normal sandbox, yet you can still play on cinema maps with it all still working? Im sorry if i missed something obvious. if it is something that would require coding, can someone then at least point me in the right direction?

    I really enjoy using this mod, it's fantastically executed.

    One feature I'd like to see though is support for sockshare and putlocker, which commonly host full tv shows and movies that you can't find on fullmoviesonvimeo or etc.

    There's support for full movies on vimeo and full movies on youtube, I honestly don't think piracy is a big concern.

    There's nothing illicit about watching pirated content, or at least they don't go after those who stream it, only those who host it and upload it.
