Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

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.

WireShare  (formerly entitled LimeWire Pirate Edition)-ws-image-launch-error.png <- Image launch error. . . WireShare  (formerly entitled LimeWire Pirate Edition)-ws-video-mp4-launch-issue.png <- Video mp4 format launch error.

WireShare  (formerly entitled LimeWire Pirate Edition)-ws-player-error-1.png <- 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: Where can I download free karaoke cd+g format songs at? 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.
