I was if there were any tips/guides in reference to Fedora? Anything I seem to be able to come up with is outdated. I've managed to get through most of the tutorial with the exception of compiling mpv.
For the most part I hav been able to find ifedora equivelencies until I get to the hardware NVIDIA stuff where I can't seem to match it up.

Any help would be appreciated. I am using fedora 39 KDE spin with nvidia driver Version: 545.29.06 and CUDA Version: 12.3

--- On a whim I decided I would judt try it and lo and behold it seems to be working just fine. I need to figure out what I did so I can reproduce it on another install. The weird thing is that the ONLY thing that shows up in the events log:

19:00:39.447 [W]: Object does not exist at path “/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/2”
19:02:43.793 [W]: Object does not exist at path “/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/2”

This would seem to me that it should not be working. Wierd!

@kapqa -

Which part are you refering to? The compiling issue or the NVFlow one?

In regards to compiling everything compiles fine for me with the exception of:
echo --enable-libfdk-aac2 >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libfdk-aac-dev >> ffmpeg_options

which borks it, so I leave them out.

In regards to NVFlow I just added:
libnvidia-opticalflow1 to the list:

sudo apt install nvidia-driver nvidia-cuda-dev nvidia-cuda-toolkit libnvidia-opticalflow1 firmware-misc-nonfree

and so far so good - I have not encountered the error message you mention - WHEW!

A HUGE kudos to you for helping me out - everything is running smoothly in Debian 12 stable. WHOOT!

@kapqa No worries. For me personally I prefer not to use Nvidia Flow anyway - some scenes just do not look right. Its for completeness of the project basically.
So in regards to Deb multimedia you have to make a choice of whether pr not you want/need wine. If deb multimedia is used, the files from there change the C libraries and wine needs them clean in order to function. By "rolling your own" you miss this issue.

So everything seemed to compile fine and everything works great except when Nvidia Optical Flow is engaged the following error pops up:
(on a side note I was able to compile with all of the flags I originally wanted to use. Not sure what changed, I don't THINK I did anything different.)

@kopqua - thanks so much for chasing it down. I'll post results as soon as I get a chance to try your suggestions.

I've run into an issue in following the wiki instructions. https://www.svp-team.com/wiki/SVP:Linux … om_sources

when i run ./rebuild -j4 under mpv with Vapoursynth support everything runs fine until I get to:

make: Leaving directory '/home/erich/src/mpv-build/ffmpeg_build'
Using mpv options: -Dc_link_args='-Wl,-Bsymbolic' --enable-vapoursynth --enable-libmpv-shared --enable-vdpau --enable-xv --enable-x11 --enable-gl
usage: meson [-h] {setup,configure,dist,install,introspect,init,test,wrap,subprojects,rewrite,compile,devenv,env2mfile,help} ...
meson: error: unrecognized arguments: --enable-vapoursynth --enable-libmpv-shared --enable-vdpau --enable-xv --enable-x11 --enable-gl

I also am using the additional options from https://www.svp-team.com/forum/viewtopi … 787#p80787

I'm using Debian 12 so I expect I'm missing something important due to the differences between Ubuntu and Debian. I appreciate any help/pointers you can give,

Setting up Emby Theater in Arch linux. I THINK it's at least partially working as the log shows that it's communicating with emby and running a movie at 59.5401 but there is no OSD or when hovering over the SVP icon in system tray it shows no active playback.

Am I correct that it is working? I feel like I missed something. Log details below:

NEVERMIND! Silly me forgot that I had Plex-MPV-Shim running and forgot to remove it from the startup folder. Option 2 works like a charm.

Tried following the 2022 directions and the ones in the second post. In regards to the older instructions in  %appdata%\Emby-Theater\system\x64\mpv the mpv folder no longer exists and I was unable to find mpv.exe for emby theater.

In following the 2022 directions for May those didn't work for me either. Log doesn't show anything abnormal. Anyone have suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

Much thanks in advance!

I'd like to try and get pmp in arch linux to work with svp. Could someone please point me in the right direction on getting the 2 to work together, thank you!

Is there a way to get Plex Media Player 2.58.1 working in Linux with SVP? Following the directions for Plex for Windows worked like a charm so even though I've not seen any info on this in regard to Linux I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.
