SiriusStreamer is now SiriusXMStreamer!

I am very proud to announce that, with the addition of XM Radio Online support, SiriusStreamer is now known as SiriusXMStreamer!

In addition to XM Radio support, a number of new features have been added to the application. Perhaps most notable is the addition of the new built-in media player with title updates!

Please visit the website (SiriusXMStreamer - Sirius|XM Internet Radio Stream Proxy) or use the "Check for updates" feature of the application to try out the new version.

As always, your feedback and suggestions are welcomed.

1.5.1 crashes for me soon as it launches.
1.9 doesnt let me log in like the above thread says.

Hi all,

Since upgrading to version 1.5.1.0, I am getting the following error:

Does anyone know what could cause this or how to get around it?

All I’ve done is specified the credentials (which DO work on the Sirius web media player), and then tried to start it up.

i am using a ps3 and it shows all the streams for sirius
but when i choose one
i keep getting an error that says the folder has been removed
any ideas :?:[/quote]

Yes, I am continuing to get the same error:

The folder could not be accessed.
The content may have been deleted from the media server.

I am able to launch, for example, "http://127.0.0.1:51710/sirius?channel=38&format=asx" directly from my browser on my PC, so when I plugged in this URL into TVersity, I would have thought that would be enough to make it work, but I get the same problem.

I spent a little more time looking into this, and it looked like "MediaServer.exe" was crashing. When I went to my Event Viewer (START > RUN > eventvwr.exe > Application Log), I saw this:

"Faulting application MediaServer.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module ffdshow.ax, version 1.0.5.1712, fault address 0x00022523."

I decided to uninstall FFDSHOW (google it) and reinstall it, but I was having the same problem. I then decided to run "regsvr32 ffdshow.ax" to register the application properly, and then everything was working fine again! (Oh, and at some point, I also went into START > RUN > Services.msc, and then edited the properties of the TVersityMediaServer service on the LOG ON AS… tab to run under THIS ACCOUNT, and selected a local administrator account.)

I can only seem to play off the copied links on ASX format, but that’s good enough, I guess. Although it does seem to take a while to buffer, 30-45 seconds before hearing anything. Is this normal? What playback times do others experience?

Also, is there a way to see the Artist / Song Title in the corner while it is playing on the PS3?

I dont know if this will help or not…but shouldnt the URL be the IP of your PC (the Tversity server) and not the localhost IP? (127.0.0.1)

That IP is always the machine youre on.

If youre accessing the tversity server from the same PC its running on, then yes, the 127.0.0.1 IP is right, but if youre trying to access it remotely (from any machine other than the one the server is running on), the IP would be the IP of your server (192.168.1.1 for example)

If you’re using playlists or feeds, then you’d need that checkbox checked. If you’re using individual channel URLs, then you can have the checkbox checked for the default URL to be a TVersity transcoding URL, or you can copy the TVersity URL via the context menu. I’ll be writing up a number of FAQs to explain everything a little better when I get back from overseas. Sorry for the confusion…

I’m also very open to suggestions on how I can make the user interface more intuitive.

I’ve been plugging at this for a while, ready to pull my hair out.

Stream format protocol is HTTP, Format is M3U. Listeninging ip all, listening port 51710. Published port http://192.168.1.104:51710/ (for WMP on other PCs). Tversity address 127.0.0.1:41952, transcode to mp3, checkbox is UNCHECKED.

For Tversity, i have http://127.0.0.1:51710/channelfeed? as an audio RSS and Transcode always.

Running SiriusStreamer 1.1.9 and tversity 1.7.4.1 and i cannot get the ps3 to play under any condition.

Also,
Winamp cannot sync to stream but Windows Media Player can.

[quote=“trixter192”]Hello,
This is my first post on the forums, very long time tversity user. I have a dedicated rackmount server running tversity, serving a half dozen devices in the household. I’ve been a Sirius subscriber for a few months, and capable of internet listening.

Version 1.1.9 appears to run, tversity appears to connect to it. The ps3 can see the rss feeds, but cannot play them. The software runs slow and crashes at certain times on windows server 2000 with dotnet 3.5. Its not supported by the software so I’m trying it on windows 7. I get the same results minus the occasional software crashes.

Version 1.5.0 and 1.5.1 crash immediatly on windows 7. Ive tried different compatability modes with no luck.[/quote]
The application was developed on a Windows 7 machine, so it definitely works with 7. There should be no need for compatibility mode settings. A crash on startup almost always means that the .Net 3.5 framework isn’t installed. Please verify that. If it is, please capture the details of the crash and post them here or email me.

Please also share your configuration. If the PS3 can see the streams, but not play them, that indicates that the configuration settings aren’t correct. I’m betting you have the TVersity checkbox checked, which you should not if you’re actually adding the streams to TVersity. That checkbox is for transcoding the streams without having to add them to the TVersity library (the labeling has been made less ambiguous in the next version). If you have that checked, uncheck it, remove and re-add the feed to TVersity, and try again.

Now I’m getting the log in issue again, It was working fine just recently.

Make sure you’re running the latest version. Use the “Check for updates” feature of the app, or visit the website at http://www.permanence.com/sirius

i confused - in order to use SiriusStreamer from a PS3, do i check or uncheck the use TVersity box?

Nick,

I knew that setting was in the earlier versions of Tversity, but in the current version, I don’t see in Setup where I can change the # of feeds…can you point me to where that is?

Thanks

Ed

trixter192,
SiriusStreamer 1.1.9 will not work anymore, because Sirius changed their logon process. You need to grab the latest version either via the “Check for Updates” option in the app, or from the website at http://www.permanence.com/sirius
If you still have trouble after updating, let us know.

Hi,

Yes, that is on auto-start, but if I manually try to start it, I have the same problem.

Max…

Hmmm, seems like it is working and logging in all of a sudden. I didn’t change anything! OK, I rebooted my machine after installing some disk partitioning software, but thats all!

Thanks!

Its running just fine. Im listening to it right now. Later versions won’t run on my machine.

Just installed SiriusXMStreamer 1.5.1.0. I’ve already got WMP11 installed. Trying to play through TVersity to a DirecTV HR20. No joy.

If I try to listen to an XM stream directly through SiriusXMStreamer by right-clicking and choosing listen, SiriusXMStreamer throws an "Exception from HRESULT: 0xC00D11BB".

According to various pages, this error translates to:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. If you typed a URL in the Open URL dialog box, try using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:").

I’ve also tried copying the channel url and opening the URL directly in WMP11. It gives the same error.

I’m currently configured: MMS/ASX with “Use TVersity for streams” disabled. I suspect that the issue has nothing to do with tversity at this time, but a problem between SiriusXMStreamer and WMP11. I’ve reinstalled WMP11 and installed a codec pack, but no success.

Suggestions?

Sirius US, Sirius Canada, or XM? Are you able to log in through the web player?
