Debian Multimedia :: Vlc 1.0.4 No Sound In .mp4 And Unable To Play .flv At All?
Feb 23, 2010
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'm trying to figure out what in the world is going on with my sound in OpenSuSE. I put in a brand new Audigy chipset soundcard and finally got some sound to come out of the speakers. I used the guide here: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE. to fix the permissions on my sound and am able to get sound-test to play sounds as well as connect to the sound device in my vmware and play sounds. That being said, I have terrible sound quality coming out. There is a lot of static sound like white noise and the volume of the actual sound played is very low compared to the noise. The sounds also distort somewhat.
I have tried the pulse audio change in the tutorial above also and have been searching around google. The only problem that I saw similar was a person who fixed the problem by updating KDE. I don't have KDE, I'm using Afterstep.
I have been trying to play this game dawn-rpg.sourceforge.net and it immediately crashes whenever I try to play sounds. The only other sound in this system I have are the sounds for the bash/dash terminal.
So my questions are:-
a. How do I test if the sound system is working alright. b. Do I need to increase some kind of priorty/niceness to sound systems to make sure they get the available resources (cpu, memory ) whatever it needs ?
On the same topic, while I was searching on the Net I got this link http://rosegardenmusic.com/wiki/low-latency_kernels .
I know this is actually for people who want to make sounds/music but can some of these ideas/instructions be useful for me as well ?
After installing an external sound card, Im having some weird issues. The cards chipset is fully supported by suse, (CM8738) so I dont think thats the problem. Besides, I'm getting sound, but not in some applications. The system's sounds work just fine (login, logout themes) amarok plays without any problems, kaffeine, mplayer they all work flawlessly, in fact I can see the difference in quality between the onboard sound and my new card. However, no web browser is able to play any sound at all, firefox, opera or chrome, nothing,zip. Plus, vlc cant reproduce sound either, nor can smplayer.
I've tried switching channels on and off(muting)in kmixer and in alsamixer, on the console, with no results. I disabled the onboard audio on the bios before installing the new card, however my ati video card has integrated sound, which I cant disable.... I used to get this exact same problem randomly with the onboard sound, but I just had to go to kmixer and turn up the "pcm" channel volume, which was set to 0, and I had sound again on my browser. However this card's pcm channel is at max and turning it up or down affects the whole systems volume, not just the browser's. Is it better to just reinstall the sound system, if so how could I do that.
I have a Acer emachine E732z laptop. I have installed debian squeeze gnome, but it is unable to play audio through laptop speaker. The (3.5mm)audio jack is working fine and I can play audio through it. I have also installed Linux mint, but no audio(in speaker and audio jack). There is no such problem in Windows7.
i have uninstalled and reinstalled alsa and made sure its not muted, in pulse audio it displays sound is coming out when i play a song, but no sound is actually coming out.. i dont want to go back to windows, but if i cant get sound im going to have to
I just installed openSUSE 11.2. When I had installed it, I could play music from ..... and others, but no mp3-files. Because of that I followed the steps described in this thread: Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums When I finished that, I still couldn't play my mp3-files and couldn't even play music from ..... anymore.
I'm currently running 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 on a Pentium 4. I'm currently using the LXDE desktop environment but the problem is the same in GNOME. I have new Altec-Lansing BX1220 speakers. They didn't come with a driver disk and a Google search didn't return any drivers, so they should be plug-and-play. When I plug them in, the light turns on, and with the volume high enough it returns feedback. However, they don't actually play what the computer is playing. I went into alsamixer and made sure all the volumes were turned up; it didn't help. It was plugged into my microphone jack.
I have Ubuntu Lucid. If i dont' mistake, it should be possible to hear several applications playing sound simultaneously, with ALSA. But if 1 app is already playing, then starting a second one give always "device is busy".
I am having trouble getting my logout sound to play. All my sounds work, the window sounds work, as well as the login, but I cannot get my logout sound to play. I have looked at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...io/+bug/214370, tried many of the solutions(ex. installing esound package) there, but to no avail. could pulseaudio be the problem? could it be just some code in a file? Has anyone figured this out?
I am attempting to get our 32 bit application, which uses wxWidgets and libgstreamer, to play media on 64 bit Ubuntu (and Kubuntu).
The application itself runs fine, but no media play at all, neither music nor videos.
I have installed "ia32-libs" but no joy.
I have also verified that the machine itself plays sound fine; the same media my application does not play, do play fine using the native 64 bit applications. And before you ask, yes -- the application runs perfectly on 32 bit *buntu
There is no sound when I play a movie. The only mediaplayer that plays the audio is kaffeine. Amarok plays MP3 just fine. All the rest does not. Not vlc, (s)mplayer. An avi,mp3 or mkv file it does not matter. I have installed all restricted codecs but I had to doe it 2 times, the first time I did it the 1click method, but the installation what's interrupted.
I'm on Kubuntu 9.10, using Totem to play .wmv files, and certain of them cause the player to search for an audio codec (wmap?) that is never found. The video played without audio after that. So I followed advice to remove ~/.gstreamer-0.10, and reboot. A new .gstreamer-0.10 directory appeared, but now, Totem will not even play the video. It recognizes the audio codec however. The video codec shows up as "Windows Media..." but resolution is 0 x 0, and nothing ever appears in the window. I tried uninstalling and re-installing w32codecs and non-free-codecs, and removing the registry files under ~/gstreamer-0.10 and using gst-inspect to rebuild the database, but nothing helps.
I've just installed Ubuntu and it seems the sound isnt working in it. Anyway - i have two screens. One is a tv and i want the sound to come out of there(its running through a hdmi cable).Works completely fine in windows. I havn't installed nivada plugin thingy as it stops my dual monitors working =(. So maybe this is the problem? From what i remember it worked in wubi though (without nivada drivers)I followed the troubleshoot and couldn't seem to find anything wrong?
I'm running to 11.04 and I can't seem to get the file to play sound. I've tried others and none seem to work. I've tried downloading all sorts of codecs but either not the right ones or just not doing something right...
I was having problems with pulseaudio, which I eventually cleared up. Now sound works on everything except flash videos and games. I have tried to reinstall adobe-flashplugin in synaptic, but I get this:
E: adobe-flashplugin: subprocess installed pre-removal script returned error exit status 2
When I try to remove Adobe Flash Plugin 10 in Ubuntu Software Center, I get this:
I looked around the settings on Ubuntu and I cannot prevent sound from being played on my laptop speakers when external (more powerful) speakers are plugged in. Windows automatically defers all sound output to the external ones as soon as it is plugged in.
I'm testing a rather old motherboard (PC-Chips A31G) with both Ubutu Karmic and Lucid, everything seems to work fine but video playing.
I tried flv, mp4 and mpg with both mplayer and totem, but I can only get sound with no video, well, not a black screen but a deformed image (I don't attach an image because every attempt to capture the screen gets a black or transparent video).
I already installed ubuntu-restricted-extras package witho no luck.
What I don't understand is that, if I switch to another motherboard (using the same HDD), everything works perfect. I guess it's a problem with the motherboard's video chipset, but would like to confirm this and know whether there is a solution.
I tried playing a vcd on my lucid lynx and it was giving problems. after i put the cd in the cd-rom i could see a CD icon on the desktop as well as an autoplay wizard asking it to play with Movie player.
and when i said yes it gave an error saying
Code: "Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file." now when i try i to see the cd from terminal i could find that it was mounted at /media/VideoCD/
Recently pulled the plug on Windows 7 and changed completely to Linux. Don't regret it for a second and I will now stay Linux for the long haul. Just a couple of issues have emerged though....
1) All dvd's I have tried so far, do not play in Movie Player. Error message was:Location not found. (dvd file name does appear in play list though it does not play....I have let it search for plug ins and updates but the return was: Plug in not found (though it does not say what plug in was not found....which I hoped it might then I might know what it was...).
2) Vodafone MBB K3570-Z doesn't want to play ball either. Noticed no install message, not even as a recognised usb device.Looked at similar posts and tried editing, deleting and retrying. Ensured the user, password, APN, were all properly edited, but not a peep out of it.Also selected mobile broadband in network settings. But no connection at all. Also tried the usbmodeswitch too.
I have just installed 11.4 64bit and duly followed the sticky guide for getting the required multimedia files installed. I find I have a problem with playing audio cd's the only program which will play an audio cd is Kaffeine but it does not play properly - it plays a few bars then silence, plays a few bars then silence and I can find no way of getting it to play without interruption. There are no sound problems with Kaffene when using it to play digital tv or dvd films. I have tried KsCD, Amarok, Mplayer, SMPlayer, and GNOME MPlayer none of which can I get to play a CD. With Amarok there does not appear to be a setting to play a CD as soon as it is put in the drive it would appear that you have to generate a playlist first, I can show the list of tunes on the CD but that's a far as it goes they will not add to a playlist or play.
Have just found the player Clementine which apparently is based on Amarok. Although not providing a direct play facility I was able to load the cd to the playlist then play the tunes. This may be a clue to my problems in that I noticed that it had to mount the player first. Is there a setting for auto mounting?Ideally I would like to put an audio cd in my player and have it play automatically without me having to do anything. Is this facility available in 11.4 and if so which program do I need to install?
I'm able to open DVD data discs, it's just playing DVD movies which is the problem now.
I've followed the official ubuntu guide on this and it hasn't worked. Even with all the numerous posts regarding the matter I'm still unable to find a fix.
Thus I'm posting here. If I can't get this to work I'm fooking back off to Windows because I've wasted far too many hours as it is.
I'm running P4 2.4 Ghz, NEC 2500a DVD-RW drive. I've also got two other DVD drives, a Pioneer slot drive which I get the exact same problem and another one which I haven't tested yet as it appears to be a software problem.
