Install OpenVideoPlayer (ovp) in Flex project with Maven

Just faced an issue that cannot find openvideoplayer in maven repositories to simple add this as dependency.
Here is how to do it without official repo.

1. Download core-bin ovp from this location
2. Unpack from ‘bin’ folder ‘owp_core.swc’ file.
3. Run this command

mvn install:install-file -Dfile=/path/to/lib/owp_core.swc \\
-DgroupId=org.openvideoplayer \\
-DartifactId=ovp \\
-Dversion=2.1.6 \\
-Dpackaging=swc \\

4. Add dependency to your pom


That’s it!

Install Hamachi for Ubuntu

Sometimes you need to have access to a computer within some network for different purposes: remote assistance, server administration, play network games with people behind firewall 🙂

For those cases Hamachi is what you need.

So, the following are steps what to do:

1. install hamachi from here (I have 64-bit Ubutnu so I downloaded 64-bit deb file)

sudo dpkg -i logmein-hamachi_2.0.1.15-1_amd64.deb

2. install haguichi with this commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/haguichi
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install haguichi

3. run haguichi (this is GNOME version, graphical)


After that you can create your own networks or join to some other networks
