fra81, thanks for your response.
Yes, I downloaded Zeranoe ffmpeg build. As per your instruction, I also copied swresample-1.dll. Lib names had “-<number>.dll” so I tried using with and without those additions in name (example: libav.dll and libav-56.dll). And still no luck. 🙁 I also installed Cygwin and compiled h.264 as per instructions for server host. None of this helped.
On a Linux side, I did compiling per instructions for server host, and confirmed libs are moved on correct location with correct permissions. You asked me for a ls -l command output so here it is: http://pastie.org/10200853
On Linux I also removed package h264enc as it would not help, like you said.
Next, I was suspicious that Kubuntu’s change from ffmpeg to avconv (ffmpeg’s fork) might be a problem, so I went to FFMPEG site and found their original repository. I added repository and installed FFMPEG. I then tried again to connect to and from Linux to Windows station mentioned above, and in both ways I was getting still VP8 in Change settings.
As per your second post (thanks for that tip!) I also checked logs both on Windows and Linux machine for any kind of mention that loading of h.264 lib failed. Unfortunately, no such log entries. I manually went through logs and using commands find . | xargs grep ‘codec’ -sl and find . | xargs grep ‘H.264’ -sl on /usr/NX/var/log/node folder.
I believe I tried everything and now I am without any new ideas what went wrong. I don’t believe manual configuration should be such a problematic procedure, so if you have any more tips / clues or anything that might help, I would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance!
Thanks fra81, that sounds interesting. However, your link seems to be broken. I tried changing FR to AR (as most article links start with AR) but it doesn’t work. 🙁
Thanks Britgirl, so Enterprise Desktop is a right solution for me. Problem solved. 🙂
Thanks Tom and Britgirl! My understanding is more clear now.
However, I have one more question related choosing your Enterprise solution: all workstations here are on Linux (Kubuntu precisely). I noticed that specifically for Linux only, there is so called “Enterprise workstation” and for all platforms there is “Enterprise Desktop”. What is a difference between those two? I read your article https://www.nomachine.com/AR10K00702 which explains that Enterprise Workstation offers SSH support and multi connection on user’s machine (up to 4 connections at once). Is “Enterprise Desktop” solution provides some more features like more available connections or?
