Fedora :: MPlayer - Error On Playing MKV Format Media

Jan 13, 2010

It is normal when I play media of rmvb, tp, avi format, but when played mkv format media, I got the error:

- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

Fedora :: Get The Movie's Name Which Mplayer Is Currently Playing?

Nov 19, 2009

I have a computer playing movie automatically in loop,and I want to know which movie is now playing in this computer and report it to a server. I use bash script to do this. If I use "pe -ef|grep mplayer ........" ,it seems to complex. Is there any easier way to get the name and store it in a parameter like $movie_name ? And also, I want to know if I can know whether the mplayer is running well. For example, if I use "mplayer wrong.txt". You can still get "ps -ef|grep mplayer....",but you just know that mplayer will get error to play .txt file.

Fedora :: Mplayer And Other Media Players?

Oct 13, 2009

I guess I need to start off by saying that I am new to Fedora. Most of my media files come from iTune. therefore, I have download mplayer, xmm and Audacious to play the ACC, Mp4 and Mpv files. None of the media players play ACC or mp4 files. I downloaded the ACC plugins for mplayer, XMM and Audacious but it still does not work. Also Mplayer will not show show a video file, but the sound works. When I start mplayer the screen freezes and glitches. I have screen shots showing the glitch issue.

General :: Mplayer No Sound When Playing Some Movies?

Feb 27, 2010

that's a bit of a strange problem, that somehow crept into my system. It used to work fine.Here is the problem as far as I can identify it. When I try to play certain video files with mplayer, there is no sound. As far as I can tell, it is only an issue with ac3 and dts sound tracks (using the ffmpeg decoder).Mplayer says:

Opening audio decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg/libavcodec audio decoders
AUDIO: 48000 Hz, 6 ch, s16le, 1536.0 kbit/33.33% (ratio: 192000->576000)

Software :: Mplayer Lags When Playing Over The Network?

Nov 12, 2010

The program mplayer lags when playing high quality media over the network. This is not an issue when playing locally, but it becomes an issue when playing large (>= 1 GiB) Matroska video files over the network.
By "lag" I mean that the animation freezes at a fixed frequency, every five second or so the animation will halt for a fraction of a second, which is very annoying.

The network is a 100 Mbit switched ethernet network, I typically get around 10 MiB per second in actual flow rate and there is no noteworthy traffic on the network that degrades the performance. The lag is there regardless of traffic.

If I have a file at 1.4 GiB which is 60 minutes long, shouldn't that equal < 0.4 MiB/sec in required flow rate? I.e. I should be able to play this file over a 10 Mbit network. Yet, even on a 100 Mbit network this doesn't work.

The computer I use to play this media is a 4.12 GHz Core i7 with 6 GiB RAM and a GTX480 graphics card.
I have the latest graphics drivers. I use Slackware 13.1.0. I use a custom, small and highly optimized kernel (although the same issue is there with the standard kernel). My version of mplayer is MPlayer SVN-r31498-snapshot-4.4.4.

The network protocol used is SMB, i.e. I play from a mounted SMB resource.

I have tried to host the file on different computers, both are dedicated file servers, one is a Pentium 4 3.0 GHz with 2 GiB RAM with no load other than hosting files, the other being almost equivalent except with a 2.8 GHz CPU. Watching the system load on the machines yield nothing of interest, sending a mere ~0.5 MiB per second is nothing for a computer like that, even though a P4 is not exactly new anymore.

What is interesting though is that if I use the "-vo gl" argument to mplayer, the performance is greatly improved, there is very rarely any lag.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but why on earth would the video output driver chosen affect the performance on a machine that has a 4.12 GHz Core i7 CPU, plenty of RAM, a very fast graphics card, and nothing else to do? I.e. no load at all? When I use the standard output driver, there is almost no load at all on the system. So what the heck is this?

Software :: No Sound While Playing Mkv File With Mplayer?

May 12, 2011

I am on the latest version of Ubuntu, and I try to keep my system up to date. I have a few mkv files that I make from avi and subtitles. When I play them with mplayer, there is no sound, and I have this error : Too many video packets in the buffer: (3924 in 33557981 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.

But when I play the mkv with the default Ubuntu player, it works perfectly, there is the sound.

I don't really understand what that means, and I like to play my video files with mplayer.

General :: Mplayer Just Starts Playing The Audio Stream From The Beginning?

Mar 18, 2010

I have and avi file and an ac3 file that contains an alternate audio stream. I run mplayer like: mplayer -audiofile foo.ac3 bar.avi

mplayer takes the audio stream from the ac3 file as expected, but when I try to scroll the video using arrows or pgup/pgdown keys, the audio gets desynced: mplayer just starts playing the audio stream from the beginning. Do I have to pass any additional command line arguments in order to make it scroll properly without desyncing audio?

Software :: Mplayer Fails To Play Any Media?

Sep 7, 2010

I am having a constant problem with all media. All songs and video locally will not play smoothly. They are broken usually with no sound. It takes about 10 real time seconds to play one second of a song.Moving on.. using Totem movie player, but I switched to mplayer and am still having the problem. I have looked into the problem and I believe it has to do with the Win32 Codecs plugin. The current plugin running is LibMad0 (whatever you call it)I also have the libmad0-dev pkg installed. This is the default plugin I believe for mplayer, but after extracting the Win32 codec filento /usr/lib/Win32 it did not make a ifference. So question, how can I make it revert to the Win32 codec plugin?Specs:HP Pavilion dv4Notebook PC Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5800 @ 2.00GHz64bit processor.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: MPlayer Playing Videos On Slow Computer - Getting Blue Screen

Jan 21, 2011

-Ubuntu 10.04 with MPlayer/Smplayer & VLC installed via the repos. -Installed the Ubuntu Restricted Extras package (everything except flash, extra fonts, & java) & w32codec packgae (medibuntu). -Computer in question is 800mhz Celeron, 256MB RAM & one of those basic Intel Integrated Graphics Chip. I'm having problems playing some video files. When trying to play these files with Smplayer, I get a blue screen but can still hear audio (default video output). After switching the video output to x11(slow), I can now see the picture but it's not playable (some video will show maybe one frame every 2 seconds, some video would play for half-a-second then just freeze). This happens mainly with large files (not 100% accurate, but in general files over 300MB).

Mplayer log gives the "Your system is too slow to play this file" & "Bad alloc:insufficient resources" messages. So I'm guessing this is not a codec problem, but a system resources problem? Is there any option, trick, tweaks, etc. I can use to play these problematic files or is it just not possible because of my system specifications? Is there a way I could tell mplayer to play these files with lower bitrates & resolution? Maybe this could reduce the resources needed to play?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Windows Media 9 Codec: No Sound In Mplayer / Totem / Vlc

May 15, 2010

how I fixed my sound problems, that happened only for "windows media 9" videos, after struggling for days changing the players etc. (using Ubuntu lucid 10.04 up to date)First search for "Ubuntu install w32codecs" (or w64codecs depending on your system bus width) and... install them as root or 'sudo'


$ sudo apt-get install w32codecs (or w64codecs)

After updating totem to the very latest version (May 12, 3 days ago) the problem happened to be likely from the source: gstreamer. So I tried to install the latest version of gstreamer, and it worked (the default one packaged in Ubuntu is dated 2008...).


install latest developer version

Software :: Media Player Hanging And Not Playing Music After A Little While

Jun 13, 2010

I have had MASSIVE problems with media-players. None of the ones I tried have been working flawlessly. They end up hanging and not playing my music after a little while. My 35gb music library is originally an itunes library from OS X, copied to the ntfs partition of my netbook (low specs - 1 gb ram, 1,66ghz atom).

I have tried Exaile, Rhythmbox and Banshee (which I liked the most) from the EB4 repos, but none of them works to a level I can agree with. So I was wondering if anyone either has ideas as to how I can make any of the above players work perfectly or what other players I should try out?

General :: Totem Playing Moved Media File - Location Not Found

May 24, 2010

I am using ubuntu 8.04. I played an mp3 in totem & meanwhile moved that file to another location. Still I can move slider in totem to rewind or forward the song. Only after the song has been played completely I get message 'location not found'. Does that mean totem copies song into RAM so that it does not have to trouble hard disk for access during entire duration ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: See HD Videos In MTS File Format From Digital Camera - Mplayer (gmplayer) Black Windows

Sep 13, 2010

I have to use mplayer, using the gmplayer executable, in order to see some HD videos in MTS file format from my digital camera, and though they play reasonably in mplayer it is impossible to control the video as the control window is blank and black, as is the video window until the video starts to play. See screenshot. I have an ATI 9200SE video card, sempron 2400+ cpu, 2GB ram, if that makes any difference. I have never had this problem in previous Ubuntu versions, only now in Lucid, fully updated. I have the packages mplayer, mplayer-gui and mplayer-skins installed. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing.

EDIT: OK, problem over. To get the best from my ATI card I was using 16 bit colour. Discussions last night on another forum questioned many things which made me look again at that, and a change of colour depth has solved that difficulty. I now need to make sure that the24 bit colour does not introduce other problems which are more difficult to live with, but my xorg.conf is customised and edited from the one I needed to get any display from karmic, so it is possible that I may be able to live with 24 bit colour now in Lucid.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Multi Media Restricted Format Installation For 11.3

Nov 1, 2010

After having followed the guide in the link below

Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide

I tried to reproduce MP3 files on video like .AVI or MP4 and everything was fine.Every program and library seems that has been installed correctly.

But when I checked , following the instructions in the link, I found different results. I can understand that the guide has been written a long time ago and some packages are not available anymore in the repository, but I think there are too many differences.

This is what I got:


And I got the following list

Another differerence that I have noticed is: when I was listening a MP3 file using Amarok the music was quite clear and loud, but when I reproduce a MP4 or MP3 video file using VLC I could bearily hear something and the volume was at its maximum. How can it be ?
