Debian Multimedia :: Can't Play Person Of Interest .mkv Other .mkvs Work Fine
Oct 9, 2010
So I downloaded the HD version of Person of Interest: [URL] It has h264 video and AVC audio contained within a Matroska file. For some reason I can't get it to play in either Totem or mplayer, even though I've been able to play other Matroska files fine in both of them. Totem does nothing but display a black window. gmplayer displays a blue screen and there's a silouette where the control buttons are supposed to be. Also it takes about 20 seconds to close it. When I try to get the properties on it, it says "Creating properties window. You can cancel this operation by clicking cancel." and it won't show the properties no matter how long I wait.When I try to run it in mplayer from the command line, it says a bunch of these:
All at the same hex location, but with seemingly random "nal sizes." Then it ends with this: Too many audio packets in the buffer: (4097 in 1648030 bytes).Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.
I installed the adobe plugin, and my browser crashes. I uninstalled it, and installed the one in the apt repository (mozilla-plugin-gnash) and it shows up in my about: plugins in iceweasel, but flash just doesn't play.
I have one desktop and two laptops. It is strange to find that none of the three systems play VCD, when I use Totem, Totem-xine, Gxine or VLC media player, even with the codecs updated. Worse, each of the three DVD players then act in a loop, seeking the LG DVD-RAM drive endlessly. But the drives otherwise work very well and I also write DVDs and CDs often.I have tested the VCDs in Windows machines with VLC media player, and the VCDs work wonderfully. This is kind of strange. So I thought may be I should report this.
I've had this problem on a few flash games (a couple of EA's sports management games on Facebook, and the Pokemon Dream World.) When I first use them everything's fine, but as I continue coming back to them, they seem to run a little slower each time. Ultimately in the case of the former two it got so bad that they were unusual.
Why is this happening? If they were slow from the start I could understood, but what could be making them go wrong on repeated plays?
I'm on 32 bit Kubuntu Lucid, firefox is my browser, and it's the official flash plugin.
I've been searching and haven't had any luck so far so I figured someone here's gotta know the answer to this. I'm troubleshooting why some of my MKV files will play audio on my WDTV and others won't. I'm suspecting it's got something to do with the audio codec inside the MKV. However, I don't know how to view what codecs are being used inside the MKV. Does anyone know of a good program or command I can run to view what's inside of the MKV
I have a logitech dinovo wireless keyboard with those extra multimedia keys on it like Volume Up, Volume Down, and Mute. They didn't do anything so I installed KeyTouch. I was able to select my keyboard from the list in KeyTouch, and if everything was working right then at that point all my extra keys would work. But they still didn't do anything. So I went into the Keytouch editor to make my own custom profile. You click add to add a new key and then it asks you to press a key. So I press the key (Mute) and it recognizes it, and then you select what action you want it to do. I did this for Mute, Volume Up and Volume Down. But yet they still don't work!
Now obviously it detects my key presses (keycode) just fine when I added the new key. So it should do the assigned action when I press that key. What I *want* it to do is mute or change the volume of the Headphones. But as I said that wasn't working at all for some reason. So to narrow it down I instead set the Mute key to simply launch firefox. But it still doesn't work. So there is some disconnect... in the keytouch editor it's detecting the key just fine, but afterwards when you press Mute it doesn't do the action it's supposed to.
I don't get any sound from my left speaker. With my headphones plugged in though I get sound in both speakers. I've upgraded my Kernel to .36. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. I'm on an MSI A7200 which is a great laptop but apparently a very rare one. There's like no info on it at all on the internet.
I am working on an Acer Aspire 5515 laptop. Installed UE 2.7. Need Skype working. Webcam works fine. Audio works fine. When I connect to a video call, the person I am calling can hear and see me, but while I can hear them, I can't see them.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and would like to use WebCamStudio with Skype 2.1 beta for ubuntu 32 bit. I though skype displays WebCamStudio as one of the webcams its not able to stream output of WebCamStudio to other person...
I can't play video on any player (vlc, mplayer, totem), the files open, sound works, but video is black. I suspect something went wrong when I upgraded to VLC 1.1.4 using a ppa, I've read that the ffmpeg can screw up and then video just stops. Trying to play m4v, mkv, avi, none work.
Not sure what to do, reinstalling seems like a hassle. Already tried removing vlc and the new ppa, tried removing ffmpeg and reinstalling, removing ubuntu-restricted-extras.
I just installed 10.04 and am pleased w/ things, for the most part.
However, I cannot get a DVD disc to play (a movie, for instance) or be recognized unless I shut down the system and restart (provided I have already launched a Web video, or something). The DVD-ROM is dead to the world as far as disc recognition goes.
Things were just great in Karmic so this is completely confusing to me.
Is there any way to use sed to replace certain text in a file with the persons username automatically? Right now i'm using Code: Select allsed -i.bak s/STRING_TO_REPLACE/STRING_TO_REPLACE_IT/g file.foo
I would like it to automatically inject the persons usrname in the replacement string. Is this possible? I've been looking on line at various sed tutorials and I cant quite find what i'm looking for. I also didn't really see anything in the forums search function.Essentially i'm trying to take this file URL...Android.rules and replace all instances of username with the persons actual username automatically.
i installed ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop pc. I previously used 8.10 without any problems. Now I have a problem with amarok. I can't play any music at all. i tried to find what the problem was but i don't seem to succeed so far.
I'm not to sure this is the place I should post this, but couldn't find any place for it to fit. So here is the deal..I am running 10.10 with the standard LAMP setup. I am running a drupal 7 site no problems. What I need to do is run a multi site sub directory. (domain.com/newsite). So far the best I can do is get a directory index of the second site (domain.com/newsite), but cant run the installer. (I did the symbolic link to the doc root of the drupal install.)If I type in the url domain.com/newsite/install.php I get not found. I placed an index.html test page and it renders fine. I think I'm close but just not there yet.
Any ideas from anyone? I can get Sobdomains to work fine on a test mache, but sadly I need the domain/site to work due to lack of DNS support at the moment. I tried to get some info from the drupal forum, but everything always points to subdomin setups. I also posted over there, but it seems like the forums have very little support and are a bit on the slow side.
running kubuntu 9.10 karmic koala, and my sound settings -at first glance- seem to be in order... a strange thing is occurring, is my machine haunted? my sound works when:
a. the machine boots up b. files are played in dragon player c. the machine shuts down
my sound does not work when:
1. i try to play streaming flash videos online (e.g. videos videos show the image but no sound will play) 2. the same goes for vlc media player: images yes, sound no. 3. i use skype *edit: additional problem*
i made no changes, that i know of, to my machine before this started happening. one day everything was working fine and i turned off my machine to go to sleep. the next day, i turn on my machine, and surprise, the sound doesn't work in some instances.
I am using Suse 11.4, with the Gnome desktop. I have downloaded the VLC player, but cannot work out how to make it play CDs in the CD drive. Right clicking on the Audio Disc icon that appears on the desktop whenever I load a disc doesn't give me an option to Play using VLC. Is there a way to make VLC the default player for CDs?
I have buyed a dvd, but I can not play it. I've installed libdvdcss2 and libdvdread4 already. However, when I start Totem, it doesn't work. It says: "Could not read DVD. This may be because the DVD is encrypted and a DVD decryption library is not installed". I use debian stable (wheezy).
The version of mencoder I currently have installed segfaults (immediately) when you ask it to convert x264-encoded MKVs to another format. One sample command-line would be:
Code: mencoder -nosound -ovc libdv Puella_Magi_Madoka_Magica_720p_GG_-_06.mkv -o a.avi This produces the following output: Code: MEncoder 20110702-4.5.2 (C) 2000-2011 MPlayer Team success: format: 0 data: 0x0 - 0x1c43987e libavformat file format detected.
Incidentally, I'm wondering if the version of FFMpeg that the MPlayer configure script downloads might be at fault. The slightly outdated FFMpeg I installed from SBo (6.1) does not crash when converting the same file. And no, I can't use either Alien Bob's Mplayer build or the MPlayer binaries included with Slackware. Neither is built against either libdv or x264. I need libdv as an output codec.
Here's a plugin that lets VLC from wheezy-backports play h.265 content. I packaged it for the MEPIS 12 repo, but it should work on wheezy. [URL] ....
Or create your own packages against Debian's stock VLC 2.0.3, that might work.
You need to install the libde265 package first, then the plugin package.
You can use the static ffmpeg binaries from ffmpeg.org to encode to that h.265 (hevc) codec, but it will take quite a while.
Code: Select all./ffmpeg -i [inputfile] -vcodec hevc [outputfile] Try mp4 or mkv for the output file extension.
The good news is that it will create video of the same quality that is half the size of a comparable h.264 file. This is handy for putting movies on space-limited storage, such as on a phone or tablet. I do know that MX Player on Android can play h.265 video.
so I have vlc 1.0.4 and when I try to play .flv files they won't load and when I try to play .mp4 files they play but after 1 or 2 vidoes there is no sound at all. I can get sound form other applications such as amsn and ice weasel when it happens
I recently did a fresh Debian Squeeze install.The problem I have is that I cannot play any video. I tried opening mpg, flv and mov files with totem and vlc and they crash instantly.I think I have installed the packages (codecs, players, etc) required for playing videos.
After hours of googleing I'm stumped.When MPD is playing audio, I cannot play audio in another app (ie Totem/VLC).MPD runs under the mpd user. Alsa config is default (as far as I can tell, it configures itself automatically now). System is squeeze, up to date.
