Thanks for your quick response. Following your helpful instructions, I have now set Wireshare in 64 bit mode by deselecting the 32 bit mode and removed any control via my firewall for the moment until I have sorted the problem. I also downloaded Java 6 as you suggested.

Sadly nothing I have done allows the download from Wireshare to run.

You will have already guessed that I am not computer literate other than at a basic level.

I have double everything you suggested but without success.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated before I trash the lot!

It seems, by looking at the error report, the error occurred when you attempted to play a file with the internal WireShare player. If this was the case try unchecking the "Use the WireShare player when I play Audio and Video files" box in the Options.

If you are unable to open WS at all to change such settings, then go to the WS preferences folder & find the wireshare.props file. Control-click or right-click the file or simply select it & go to the Finder menu bar -> File -> Open With ... and choose TextEdit. Then use Command F to use the search function. Type the word player into TextEdit's search box. You will find a line that says PLAYER_ENABLED=true
Change this to PLAYER_ENABLED=false.
Save the document.

Then try to open WireShare again (WS is an abbreviation for WireShare).

The WireShare preferences folder is found here:
OSX -> Users -> Your Account name -> Library -> Preferences -> WireShare -> wireshare.props

The LimeWire equivalent instructions are here LW preferences folder location but instead do not delete the folder. :)

Any update on your trials?
If you need any more guidance let us know. :)


I am aware of an anomaly with WireShare's launch function on MacOSX. (I don't have the in-built player enabled.) Often when I try to launch a video or image from the upload window I get an error message saying the system does not have a program that can open that type of file.
Yet I've also noticed if I have Mac's Preview program already open it seems to launch the file without issue.
Also noticed that after a video file launch error (VLC has been launched) and if I launch the video from the computer I get the same error message unless I quit the player (VLC) first. I never saw this issue with LPE. It might be a permissions based issue. If that's the case then it's probably due to the OSX installer design or lack of considering registering things to the system.

Attachment 6805 <- Image launch error. . . Attachment 6806 <- Video mp4 format launch error.

Attachment 6807 <- Video mpeg 2 format launch error.
This last snapshot was taken 6 months ago. Not sure this issue is caused by same problem. Different error message you will notice.

Hi LOTR and BigJx

My apologies for not replying sooner but I wanted to be sure that what I had done was reliable. In the end I went to WS - Preferences - My files - and unchecked the box that said 'Use the Wireshare player when I play Audio and Video files', just as BigJx suggested. It was the reference to 'Options' that threw me. I think LOTR said the same but I can only follow simple instructions.

Many thanks to both of you for your help and patience.

Regards

Rollo Browne

PS I still cannot find wireshare.props but that's just my incompetence!

A good start would be to check some of the main topics here Getting Started Using LimeWire + WireShare which also applies to WireShare. :)

WireShare has its own media player which can play audio and video files but no guarantee it will play all karaoke file types.

As for searching karaoke files, this might be of help: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/343982-post12.html however I believe there are also some newer karaoke file formats these days.
(WireShare has an overall updated file extension list for some of the newer audio & video file formats compared to LimeWire.)
I don't think I had much luck with searching .kar files many years ago but might be a worthy search now.

Wireshare doesn't work for me; it keeps saying it's connecting but never actually connects.

WireShare does not launch under Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon ?

Once the deb package installed (WireShareLinux-v5.6.4.3.deb), after I click the "Internet > WireShare" icon nothing appears.
From the terminal, if I type "wireshare" I get "/bin/bash: ./runWireShare.sh: Permission not allowed"

How to run WireShare please ? (I am a newbie on Linux).

In Ubuntu you cannot run a lot of sh scripts unless they have been given permission to do so. Find the runWireShare.sh file and get the file Properties, Permissions & see if there is an option to run as script or similar such as Allow executing file as a program.
That might fix the issue.

Someone else like BigJx will probably give you a better and easier answer.
