General :: Movie Player And Dragon Player Not Working In Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx
Sep 20, 2010
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 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'm having problems with video files, when i try to watch them on VLC player or Movie player or any other software, its spoiling my picture, colors are fuzzy, it is like, gray color is shown as yellow, white as blue and stuff like that.
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
Is there any way to make Dragon Player so there is just one running instance of it at a time? Like if i have something playing and i click on something else to play have it so that the instance currently running changes to the new file instead of opening a new window?
I've just installed Fedora 13 and so far it's been pretty painless. But i am having some issue with dragon player. I beleive i have all of the multimedia stuff installed properly. But i am getting no video or sound from dragon player. stuff plays fine in vlc.
KDE ships with the Dragon player for video playback. Trying it many times I still find it hard to use with clunky interface and playback problems, and I go back to MPlayer. How many in openSuse community use Dragon player?
I run lucid. I already have installed Medibuntu and the package libdvdcss2. Nevertheless, I still can't get DragonPlayer to play a DVD properly. Indeed, Dragon starts to play the DVD. However, the image is distorted and you can't recognize anything... This is what the terminal messages say when I start Dragon over the terminal:
Code: norma@norma:~$ dragon --play-dvd /media/cdrom0/ dragonplayer(2265)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "aspect_ratio_menu" with KXMLGUIFactory! dragonplayer(2265)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "audio_channels_menu" with KXMLGUIFactory! dragonplayer(2265)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "subtitle_channels_menu" with KXMLGUIFactory! libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 1.1.17 from http://xine.sf.net
I am having trouble viewing videos with the movie player. It plays the audio just fine but only has flashes of video throughout. I believe it has something to do with the frame rate but I don't know how to change it. I have read about frame drop and it is used on slow computers but my computer is an AMD Phenom x6. What can I do to play this video?
Every time I use Movie Pllayer to play DVD movie, it just hang on there and not responding,so I must click the 'Force Quit' button to close it.What should I do to overcome this problem? Is there any other software which can play DVD movie?
I am running ubuntu 10.4, I downloaded VLC player, but when I try to watch a DVD, it only goes as far as the legal warning screen from the dvd movie. What am I doing wrong? I would like to mention that I am a beginner on computers, so not even the average IT skills.
im trying to watch a movie i downloaded....plugged it into my tv via hdmi wire and turned it to the appropriate channel (hdmi2) and i cant seem to get the video to start playing and i just dont know why any ideas? maybe theres a specific application i need to install from the software center that has the capability?
REVISION! it kinda works now...comes up on both my laptop and tv at a different resolution all the icons are big....cant see the top and bottom panel bar too well...and it wont transmit the audio...thats just coming out of my laptop
I'm trying to watch a DVD video using Movie Player, but nothing happens. It asked for a MPEG-2 decoder but then said Gstream already had the decoder. But to be sure I hunted down some rpm files with a free MPEG-2 decoder and installed them. Nothing happened. Before that, Movie Player asked for an Advanced Stream Format Demuxer. Then it told me it was already installed. I tried to uninstall Gstream. Maybe it was installed badly for reasons unknown, but the uninstaller warned that it would take 50 files with it.
I got the impression it was daring me to uninstall Gstream, so I chickened out. But I am upset now. This problem has wasted half of my Saturday day off and it is still not solved. I forgot to say I had also installed libdvdcss, in desperation. Nothing happened. This computer does display DVD videos with Movie Player using a different distro. I'm not surprised Fedora has problems. But you figure by 2011, watching a DVD video should be no problem by now in any distribution.
