I have installed Squeeze with the Gnome desktop and the Totem Movie Player Application. It seems to work ok but it seem there is no way to delete the history. I found one post on the subject with no reply and have read the bug reports and the problem was not mentioned. I tried to find the file containing the history without success.
I have a lot of .ogv and .mpg files. Most of the .ogv files won't play, and none of the .mpg files will play, in Totem. I installed VLC media player and all the files will play in it. If I click on file properties in Nautilus for the files that won't play, it says "Creating Properties window. You can stop this operating by clicking cancel." But it never actually shows me the file properties.
I recently viewed a few .mpg s from the Internet by selecting to open them in movie player. Those videos are listed in the recently opened files list under the 'Movie' menu. I was trying locate these files on my computer since I can still play them by clicking on them in the 'Movie' menu, but I can't figure out where they are. I tried using 'locate' on the command line and it isn't bringing anything up. Can anyone tell me how to find the location of these files?
When I try playing DVD's in Media Player/Totem the video is choppy and does not sync with the audio. When I started looking at it in detail I see Totem is using up 95% of the CPU which kind of explains it doesn't it. But it still shouldn't be doing this. I then tried the same DVD's using Gnome Media Player and all is fine, perfect video/audio and normal CPU usage.
now the totem movie player is not able to play the video files, not only video files it cannot play anything includeing mp3 songs. here are some screenshots when i tried to open the video files...
i clicked the search option button.but it resulted like this. but earlier totem player was working fine before formatting my system. how to install those missing plugins ?how to make the totem player work with video files ?
Since I upgraded to Lucid Lynx, playing videos with the default player do not work properly. I only see the content while moving the window, or in full screen mode, and in both ways, the picture is distorsioned and with strange colors. Playing it with VLC does work properly ONLY IF I change the video output module to something different as default (X11 works, openGL also) but Linux Framebuffer does not.
The question: Is there a way to change the "default" video mode that Totem (or Kaffeine) use?? I have not found anything on the net with this exact problem.
i have reinstalled my mint 7 and whenever i play downloaded/saved videos from ....., i get a choppy/scratchy audio & video in playback. this was not the case before i reinstalled. videos videos played directly and other dvds played from cdrom and mp3s played from hd are however working fine.
The one in upstream has problems, but reading the bug reports provided the answer. I disabled the building of the python2.5 modules, and added python-httplibs2 as a Depends, and it magically started to work. Deb file and source: [URL] This is a temporary location, I'm sure upstream will have a fixed version soon.
I can not watch a DVD video using Movie Player. It gives the message: An Error Ocurred Can not read from resource. What does it want me to do ? Buy a new DVD player ? I have no trouble with this drive in another distribution on the same computer, or playing audio CDs in this very Debian OS. So I don't think there is anything wrong with the DVD drive. VLC won't do anything either.
I recently installed Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. It is working well, but Movie Player does not work, and Dragon Player plays videos/movies but with no audio. VLC works fine. how to either remove Movie Player and Dragon Player or make them work. I tried apt-get remove mplayer but that doesn't work. If not that, I wonder if the default media player can be changed to VLC, e.g., when you click any video it will start to play using VLC?
I have a DVD with a error located at a certain time. Each time I watch the DVD and then come to that point Movie Player (or vlc player) returns a error. Now I want to rip this DVD but all the rippers I tried return a error at that point when they try to rip it. Rippers I tried:
- dvd::rip - FFMPEG - Acidripper - Avidemux
Now I want to know ain't there a ripper which can read over these errors and still make a decent rip?
When playing coyright protected DVD's in Ubuntu 10.10: the following errors occur:Movie Player Error message:Error occured Could not read from resourceVLC media Player Error essage:Playback failure:DVDRead could not read block 0.Non copyright protected DVD's play fine
I upgraded my system from 8.04 all the way to 9.10.Right now I'm trying to play a DVD (Pink Floyd Pulse) and Totem Player just crashes on me. I followed the medibuntu rep installation process found here:Code:http://shibuvarkala.blogspot.com/2009/10/how-to-make-ubnutu-10-karmic-koala.htmlThe reps were updated, packages downloaded and installed, but Totem still crashes. I took a look at /var/log/messages and when I ask Totem to read the DVD, it outputs this line:Code:Jan 30 12:46:17 localhost kernel: [ 5576.977430] totem[3556segfault at 1880 ip 00007f6cfa8fb081 sp 00007f6ce48b1ac0 error 4 inlibpthread2.10.1.so[7f6cfa8f2000+17000]I don't understand why libpthread would cause any problem here
after totem is done playing a movie from my external harddrive ( usb 2.0 750 gb Western Digital HDD) the computer screen will go blank but the computer will not suspend or hibernate. I have gnome-power-manager to go to suspend after 30 min of inactivity. I will usually fall asleep during the movie and the laptop will remain on. I will wake up to find the laptop on for the whole night and that it didn't go to sleep or suspend power after the movie stopped. Note ** I have already tried reinstalling gnome-power-manager & totem ... Also have turned on and off Dbus plugin, and totem is not set to always on top.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed been playing around with it for a week or maybe two. A little familiar with the command line tried to install movie player or install what was missing and I have had no success. I'm a new linux user got turned on threw school trying to get rid of my windows crutch
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04, and am trying to play a DVD on my Toshiba Notebook NB100. Movie Player says it cannot find the plugins suitable to play the DVD. I have gone through procedures recommended on numerous forums to get the codecs and libdvd packages installed but I still get a notice telling me MP doesn't have the plugins.
after upgrading and install the recommended plug-ins for Ubuntu, the most part of songs I open with Totem Player, I can't browse by the time bar, its disabled. It moves but I can click and drag to surf it...
I searched for infos but I was not able to find anyone with this issue.
This is the first time I tried playing a VCD on my laptop and when I tried playing it on VLC, it indicated that an error, that it cannot read the file. I searched around the net for some solution and tried opening the VCD through the terminal to no avail. I tried switching to the Movie Player but it's the same. They play the initial 'Warning on illegal copying of the film, etc.' which lasts for about 15 seconds but after that, it won't play at all.
I have installed ubuntu 9.10 day before yesterday on my laptop Dell studio, When i try to play and video or audio in Application -> Sounds & Vedio -> Movie Player its unable to play anything and gives an error message as not supported.Do i need to install any external package?
