HowTo use the Docker version of Voctomix

build the docker container locally

  • checkout branch:
git checkout quickstart-docker
  • build docker
docker build -t local/voctomix .
  • rebuild docker after changes
docker tag local/voctomix:latest local/voctomix:old; \
docker build -t local/voctomix . && docker rmi local/voctomix:old

Test the docker

the entrypoint script of the container provides some commands to ease the startup of the individual components. get a list by running docker run --rm -it --name=voctocore local/voctomix core

Run the components


docker run --rm -it --name=voctocore local/voctomix core

Source example scripts

docker run -it --rm --name=cam1 --link=voctocore:corehost local/voctomix gstreamer/
docker run -it --rm --name=bg --link=voctocore:corehost local/voctomix gstreamer/


to run the GUI in a docker the docker user needs access to the local X server. This is done by sharing the /tmp/.X11-unix socket with the container. Depending on your X11 setup you have to allow access to the X-Server session by running: xhost +local:$(id -un) The example below maps the local voctogui config file /tmp/vocto/configgui.ini into the container. Please create and change this file to change the voctogui configuration.

docker run -it --rm --name=gui --env=gid=$(id -g) --env=uid=$(id -u) --env=DISPLAY=:0 --link=voctocore:corehost \
  -v /tmp/vocto/configgui.ini:/opt/voctomix/voctogui/config.ini -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -v /tmp/.docker.xauth:/tmp/.docker.xauth local/voctomix gui
