Fedora :: Watching Movies Causes CPU At 100% In F12

Nov 25, 2009

I have just switched from F10 to F12 via a fresh install. To be honest I am having difficulties getting around with the new release. For starters, watching movies causes one of my CPUs to go 100% when full screen. As you can guess watching movies doesn�t go smooth. It happens on every possible player. It doesn�t matter if I switch on or off compositing.

Fedora :: Screen Power Off After 5 Minutes When Watching Movies

Sep 13, 2010

Everything has been working great since January with one exception and that is the power saver mode thingy magig. Whenever I am not using the keyboard or mouse, the screen powers off after 5 minutes. When I am watching a movie. I cannot leave the mouse alone for after five minutes of watching the movie, the screen goes black. I'm not sure if the problem is my Nvidia card or Xorg or what. Any ideas how I can get a hold of this? Let me know what you need as far as diagnostic info. I actually have to leave for about 8 hours so.

Fedora :: Script To Disable Screensaver Only While Watching Movies

May 30, 2011

i would like to know if there are any good ways to disable and then reenable (the latter is key!) the screensaver so that it doesn't start when i'm watching movies with xine or when i'm watching flash things online like through hulu, videos, or so on. it's relatively simple to have a script run that will turn off the screensaver before starting a certain executable. but what about turning it back on again when the executable closes? and is there any way to detect that flash is running inside a browser window and then disable that temporarily?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Watching Movies In Any Video Player

Jun 15, 2010

I'm just getting started with Ubuntu 64-Bit. Basically, I have Totem Movie Player and VLC Media Player installed and every time I watch a movie in either one of them. If I tab out of them or minimize them, when I bring the media player back up the screen is black. The sound still works perfectly but I can't see the movie and I've tried several media players out and they all do the same thing. Basically I can't multitask or bring up anything else while I watch a movie or I have to restart the player because of the media screen going black.

I'm not sure if my computer specs will help but here they are:
Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 64-Bit
Intel Xeon X3210 2.13GHz Quad
4GB DDR2-800 RAM
ATI Radeon 4870 512MB Videocard

Debian Multimedia :: Xscreensaver Blanks Screen While Watching Movies?

Jun 5, 2011

I'm using Debian Squeeze with Fluxbox and I'm having a problem with xscreensaver. I've set to blank screen after 10 minutos of inactivity, but the problem is that when I'm watching a movie, the screen is blanked after 10 minutes too. So I have to manually kill xscreensaver before starting to see a movie, or I have to move my mouse / press keyboard every 10 minutes to activate the screen again.

I've done some search before posting and I only found something about a SMPlayer's option named "Disable screensaver", but it is already on and it has no effect preventing xscreensaver to work. Here is a screen shoot of my SMPlayer configuration window:

[URL]

Apparently, xscreensaver isn't being able to recognize that another program is running. Could it be related to dbus?

PS: I had a dbus problem when I first upgraded to squeeze, my multimedia keys stoped working in banshee (whenever I clicked to play/pause/next etc, another banshee process was started), but I solved it by adding this line to my ~/.xinitrc: eval "$(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session)"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Avoid Sudden Increases In Volume While Watching Movies?

Sep 24, 2010

Is there a way to avoid sudden increases in volume while watching movies? The problem is the difference between the volume of the dialogs & that of the special effects (example: firing of a bullet ,a car crash, a lightning strike & similar). Is there a way to limit the volume to a certain level ? I tried volume normalization filter of both vlc & smplayer. But none seems effective.

OS:Lucid 64
MM App :vlc , smplayer
Speaker Setup : 2.0 (Stereo)

Fedora :: Screen Tearing While Scrolling And Watching Videos?

Apr 18, 2011

"screen tearing" whenever I scroll, watch flash videos, or any videos in general. I first noticed this in Fedora 14, and now I notice the same behaviour in Linux Mint.Does anyone know what might be causing this? My Graphics Card is: Nvidia Geforce GTX 280M (1GB) I'm using Nvidia proprietary drivers. Reading some forums I see that the problem might be related to Compiz. Here's my xorg.conf file (if needed);

Code:

Section "Screen"

Fedora :: Monitor Becomes Inactive (goes Blank) When Watching Video

Jul 18, 2011

I run LXDE with Openbox as WM on Fedora 15. When I watch videos with Totem or VLC, the monitor doesn't register any activity, and goes into power saving mode (goes blank) after a certain amount of time (about 10-15 mins). How can I prevent this from happening? (I just switched over to Fedora from Arch, using GDM and Openbox. I didn't have this problem on that installation, so it's probably not hardware related.)

Fedora Servers :: Apache - Creating Symbolic Links To Movies Directory

Mar 6, 2009

I'm using FC10 and I want to create a symlink to my movies directory in my home folder:

This is what I did:
I created in
/var/www/html
ln -s /home/username/movies movies

Then in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
</Directory>

<Directory "/var/www/html">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

<Directory "/home/username/movies">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

Restart apache and then the test page is working.

The directory /home/username/movies has following permissions:
drwxrwxrwx 2 apache apache 4096 2009-03-05 23:43 movies
When trying to access my webpage at localhost/movies I get the 403 Forbidden Error.
Ok then, entering:
sudo -u apache ls /var/www/html
> movies
This works, sudo -u /var/www/html/movies returns the permission denied error.
As well sudo -u /home/username/movies
Is the user apache chrooted by default? SELinux is in permissive mode. What can I do?
