Debian Configuration :: No Video In VLC / Banshee - Xine Not Playing MKV

Sep 2, 2010

I have been using Lenny for about a year now, but for some reason Xine has suddenly stopped playing mkv files. It plays everything else including flash. I only started using xine because the mkv files for some reason suffer from a lag between the video and audio in mplayer. I tried installing banshee and vlc but neither of them show video. So I was left with only Xine and it worked perfectly then it suddenly stops playing mkv. Is there something I need to install or remove, reconfigure? Do I just delete the Xine config folder in my home-folder? Lenny being what it is I can only install what is on the out-dated Lenny repos trying anything else like the unstable releases simply wants to uninstall my entire system.

My machine specs are:
Acer Aspire 8930
Intel Centrino 2
NVidia geforce 9600m GS 512mb
I have the proprietary nVidia graphics drivers installed. So it is powerful enough.

Slackware :: Xine - Dragonplayer Segfault Playing H264 Video?

Dec 10, 2010

I was trying to play an MP4 (h264) video from Meet The Gimp (in particular, this one) but both xine and dragonplayer would play a couple of seconds of it (poorly) and then segfault and die. The error spew looked like:


$ xine meetthegimp152.mp4
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.5.
(c) 2000-2007 The xine Team.


dragonplayer emitted the same output, so I assumed it was something amiss in one of the libraries they both use. mplayer plays the video, so I'm not without recourse, but it would be nice to know what's up with the segfaults. Anyone seen something like this?
System specifics, if it matters:

Slackware 13.1 (freshly installed)
AMD64x2 5600
GeForce 8800 GTX w/ 768MiB VRAM

Fedora :: Xine Not Playing ANy Files ?

Jan 23, 2010

I've been using Xine for a while now, and all of the sudden when I try to play an audio file I get this message saying ( The stream " There is no Mrl" uses an unsupported codec:

codec: MPEG 1/2 (0x0) Star Playback Anyway?)

Anyway it will not play any video or audio files. Has anyone seen this type of message before?

Software :: Xine And VLC Not Playing DVDs - Input Plugin?

Jun 29, 2011

I have just installed SuSE 11.4 and find that xine and VLC cant play DVDs. xine reports:'input plugin cannot open MRL [dvd:/]' and then 'cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd:/]'. Plainly I've either forgotten to install something, or somethings' permissions are wrong.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine / Xine Crashes When Playing Avi Files?

Dec 29, 2009

I have just installed openSuse 11.2 (64bit), and I installed the avi codecs as described in Restricted Formats/11.2 - openSUSE-Community with the 1-click installation for KDE. But kaffeine and xine are crashing when I try to play avi files.One thing I found out is that all packages are 64 bit packages only the w32codec-all version is and I don't get offered a _64 package. Is this OK? What else could be the problem

Debian :: Video Clips Not Playing - Plugins Required?

Jun 20, 2010

After using Ubuntu for about 18 months (and trying out a few others) I have started to use Debian (Lenny) more and more. I like the fact that it's supposed to be a very powerful and stable distro. When I tried to view a couple of video clips from a website it just won't play, though. Other distros play 'out of the box' but perhaps I need some pointing in the right direction from the more experienced Debian user! I installed MPlayer but that hasn't made any difference. I also downloaded Flash for Linux, which installed without problems. What I need to do? Plug-ins required etc?

Hardware :: No Video From Mplayer/xine/vlc With HDMI Connection

Feb 28, 2010

No video from mplayer/xine/vlc with HDMI connection I just plugged in my new monitor using a HDMI cable. Display is perfect everywhere except in video players. Flash video worksfine. I guess there's some overlay setting that needs to be changed?

VLC plays some bizarre 'ASCII art' thing instead of video files. Other players give me audio but no picture.

TVTime is the same - sound but no image

Also, there is no sound via HDMI from the screen but that's a secondary issue.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox And Banshee Both Crash Immediately After Playing Song / Fix It?

Jan 20, 2011

Both Banshee and Rhythmbox crash, leaving a segmentation fault in the terminal, after playing a song for less than a second. I do manage to get some sound before they crash. This problem seems to have begun only a couple of days ago after doing an update. Unfortunately I was playing playing around with moving my music collection to an NFS share around the same time as the update so I can't be sure which action it was that broke music playback.

Because both Banshee and Rhythymbox are affected and showing identical behaviour I think the problem is gstreamer. Reinstalling everything I could find in synaptic related to gstreamer had no effect.

Some general information:
- My music collection is in FLAC but other formats seem to cause the same behaviour.
- Music from an NFS share or my external USB drive causes the same behaviour
- VLC plays music from my NFS share without any problems
- Removing ubuntu-one (as suggested in some posts) did not help
- I'm using Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 x86

I've had no luck searching the interwebs for help thus far. Does anyone have any ideas?

Slackware :: Xine Back End, Shutdown, And Logout / Getting The Xine Error?

May 30, 2010

I have just installed Slackware 13.1 32bit. My hardware is a P-4 3Ghz with a gig of ram. Intel on board graphic and sound.

This is the best implementation of Kde I have used so far. Slack 13.1 is amazing. The install went very well and everything we configured properly.

My problem is when I start Kde or try to shut dowm or logout I get the same error for knotify: Unable to use the Xine Multimedia Backend:Could not find plugin 'Xine' for application 'Knotify'

I get this same error with the application name at the end of it. If I open amarok I get the same error message with amarok at the end. If I try to click a misic file in dolphin same error message.

When I try to shut down or log out from menu I get the xine error and nothing happens. The only way I can log out is Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to get to the KDM log in screen and then I am able to shut down from the menu.

I have been looking on the forum and using google but have found nothing useful.

The error pops up when I try to play a cd or music on the hard drive.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: KDE 4 Phonon Xine-backend Configuration

Sep 6, 2010

So I have made an interesting Discovery with regards to using KDE4 Kaffeine version 1 and Dolby Digital 5.1. The basic problem seems that there is no way to configure the Phonon xine Backend in KDE 4 for use with Kaffeine version 1. There is however, a xine-config file located at:


There appears to be no GUI way to change the default xine configuration (for use with KDE 4 applications) and while you can do so manually, the options seem bewildering, at least to me.

When you run xine-ui or Kaffeine/KDE3 there is an option to adjust the xine audio configuration using a GUI. Any changes made here are ignored by KDE 4 applications. As luck would have it you can copy the old xine configuration (adjusted by Kaffeine/KDE3) over the new one for Kaffeine in KDE4. The old text file configuration is located at:


If you were to use the old Kaffeine/KDE3 to adjust your xine audio configuration and then copy this file to the Kaffeine Version 1 KDE4 location, those changes should be used by the new version 1 Kaffeine in KDE 4. After Kaffeine/KDE3 audio settings work as you desire, open up a terminal session and make the following file copy. You must overwrite or rename the old configuration file for backup.

cp ~/.xine/config ~/.kde4/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config

Since this new xine configuration is in the new Kaffeine version 1 KDE4 location, it may only modify how the new Kaffeine works and nothing else running in KDE4, but it is still an interesting find.

Debian Configuration :: Loading Video At Boot

Dec 18, 2015

I did a fresh install of Debian Jessie and I have problem booting up with video. I have to boot with "nomodeset" argument or else the boot sequence bugs, and I see a straight line of funky little color squares on the screen. And it boots with nomodeset.

lsmod do lists "nouveau".

So I don't get what's wrong. I have a Nvidia Geforce GT 750M 2gb (Lenovo y400 notebook). My graphic card is listed in the supported hardware of "nouveau"

I remember having a very similar problem on Ubuntu and installing the proprietary driver solved it. So maybe my hardware isnt supported by nouveau? But I would prefer to use an open-source driver than the prorietary.

Here is the kernel log: (I pasted only the lines which contains "nouveau")

Dec 18 11:55:02 Prototron kernel: [ 0.000000] Command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-4-amd64 root=UUID=3743665a-bd92-4d96-9733-e6934e0c9543 ro quiet modeset=nouveau

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee Won't Play CDs With Video

Jun 25, 2010

I want to retain Banshee on my system. However, whenever I buy a CD that also contains video, it will not play the music or video. When I try to listen to the music, it simply puts a red cross against each track. Since combining video and music is VERY common, this means I have a whole host of CDs that will not play. MS media player and VLC have no problems with these, so how can I make Banshee play them?

Debian Configuration :: Copying Video Setup From Ubuntu - External Monitor

Oct 15, 2015

My laptop has a dual boot Debian + Ubuntu installation.

In particular I am using Debian 8.0 with stock kernel 3.16.0-4 (or equally 4.1.10 custom compiled, I tested it and it does not make any difference for the subject of this post).

Ubuntu is 14.10, with stock kernel 3.19.0-15.

In both installations I have nvidia nouveau drivers and intel integrated graphics drivers installed and loaded. This is the default for both installations.

In both installations I have xorg automatically configured (no xorg.conf file present in /etc/X11). In both systems the content of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d is the same for what moitors are concerned (differences in mice and trackpad entries).

Unfortunately, the video configuration in Ubuntu 14.10 works out of the box. In particular I can plug in an external monitor/projector and it will fire-up the nvidia card (nouveau drivers) to power that monitor.

Debian 8.0 on the other hand does not even detect the external monitor.

I don't know where to start to solve the problems.

The hardware is as follows: the laptop (lenovo W530) features both an Intel integrated graphics card and an Nvidia K1000M. The VGA port is connected only to the Nvidia card (this is according to my online research, as I don't know how to check this).
