OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine And Xine Get Error - Cannot Find MRL Plugin For [dvd:/]

Feb 16, 2010

Error message: Cannot find MRL plugin for [dvd:/]

Trying to play dvd that worked under 11.1 and original dvd version of openSUSE 11.2. It failed after a update.

Not sure which one since I do not normally play dvd movies on my system.

Checked all multimedia rpms and they are all from packman except kaffeine which is KDE4 version.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine / Xine Crashes When Playing Avi Files?

Dec 29, 2009

I have just installed openSuse 11.2 (64bit), and I installed the avi codecs as described in Restricted Formats/11.2 - openSUSE-Community with the 1-click installation for KDE. But kaffeine and xine are crashing when I try to play avi files.One thing I found out is that all packages are 64 bit packages only the w32codec-all version is and I don't get offered a _64 package. Is this OK? What else could be the problem

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Kaffeine Cannot Find Demux Plugin For MRL ?

May 13, 2010

After having installed Kaffeine on Ubuntu to use for watching Terrestrial Digital TV through my tv-tuner, on Lucid, Ubuntu 10.04.

After installing Kaffeine and the proprietary driver and firmware for the card, starting Kaffeine gave me the following error;

"kaffeine cannot find demux plugin for MRL"

I found this problem difficult to find a solution for; but did eventually find mention of a set of plugins which would provide what Kaffeine needs;


This was originally mentioned at old nabble: [url]

I installed this, along with all the Medibuntu plugins (just to make sure) and my Kaffeine then worked without troubles.

Basically, I think if i'd originally installed according to the instructions found at the Kaffeine community website: [url] i'd have had no troubles. However, I must say I expected all dependencies to be met simply through the apt-get install process. Not so for the plugins of course, as I should have known.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Kaffeine - Cannot Find Demultiplexer Plugin For The Given Med

Feb 10, 2010

After starting Kaffeine and activating the television part the default channel should be displayed but no video and audio.

When I click (single click) on one channel of the channel list the above error message is seen.

I terminate Kaffeine and start ME TV.

ME TV works. I terminate ME TV and restart Kaffeine.Now Kaffeine is working correctly.

It seems that Kaffeine has a problem with initializing.ME TV is initializing something what Kaffeine does not initialize.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine - No Demux Plugin ?

Feb 20, 2010

After wrestling with Kaffeine on openSUSE 11.2, I thought I had solve the issue I had with it and I got a new error as described below:

Original Issue: Kaffeine will not play a dvd. Error: Cannot find input plugin for MRL

Then: error no longer appeared, but I got a new error.

New error: "Cannot find demux plugin for MRL "dvd:///dev/sr0""

Of course, I could install Demux, but what is this plugin business? Any ideas? Please, if possible include a little information about what MRL refers to.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xine/kaffeine Mp4a No Sound

Mar 19, 2010

I am using ubuntu karmic. I log into gnome, but I have kaffeine installed. I find I can't play videos with mp4a mpeg4 audio in kaffeine. The video plays fine, but their is no sound. When I use vlc it plays fine and the codec information reveals mp4a.

I think it might be related to xine as the phonon backend is xine. I try opening the file in xine, and there is also no video. When I try to change the phonon backend to gstreamer, there is no sound for anything. I have libxine1-ffmpeg, libmpeg4ip-0, and libfaad0 installed, though I dunno if they affect this.

I want to use kaffeine rather than vlc because I want to use kaffeine for dvb viewing and recording. In my area, it seems they are broadcasting mp4a instead of mpeg2 or what not.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Cannot Find Plugin For MRL - Dvd:/

Jun 24, 2010

I had the above message when I first installed openSuse and tried to play DVDs. I tried googling the above message, thinking that I was missing some software. It turned out that the message simply meant that it couldn't find the dvd.

Messages such as:

Cannot find plugin for MRL [cdda:/]

Cannot find plugin for MRL [dvd:/]

Basically mean that SuSE is having problems finding a cd or dvd. This is most likely due to symbolic links for cdrom and/or dvd not being present.

I was having this problem on Kaffeine. Also having problems playing dvds on smplayer and VLC player.

I found the answer to the problem on the following thread (all credit to jdmcdaniel3 for the key initial post), which does a very thorough job of explaining about the 70-persistent-cd.rules file, where to find it, and what you can do with it.

Multimedia Optical Drive Naming (ie /dev/dvd & /dev/cdrom) Howto in opneSUSE - openSUSE Forums

The thread explains how to edit the 70-persistent-cd-rules file or, better, to create a copy called 90-persistent-cd.rules and edit that file to add symbolic link entries for cdrom and/or dvd if they are missing. Doing this it is possible for the cdrom and dvd symbolic links to point to the same physical drive or to different drives, depending on what you wish to do.

Kaffeine seems to expect to find things in cdrom and dvd. It will work once you have set up the symbolic links for these as described in the above post.

If you simply look at the 70-persistent-cd.rules file, you will see the symbolic links allocated to the cd/dvd drive(s) on your system. If you make a note of these symbolic link values you can use them to set the drive information in applications such as smplayer or VLC player :

VLC player - go into Media/Open Disc and set the drive accordingly, depending on whether you are playing a cd or dvd. Needs to be done each time you play a cd or dvd.

I think creating the 90-persistent-cd.rules file as mentioned above and adding the entry for cdrom and/or dvd may work for other cd/dvd playing software that expects to find these links, but I haven't tested running anything other than smplayer, VLC player and Kaffeine. These cover my requirements.

Following the above I am now able to play cds and dvds in my cd and dvd drive respectively.

Slackware :: Xine Back End, Shutdown, And Logout / Getting The Xine Error?

May 30, 2010

I have just installed Slackware 13.1 32bit. My hardware is a P-4 3Ghz with a gig of ram. Intel on board graphic and sound.

This is the best implementation of Kde I have used so far. Slack 13.1 is amazing. The install went very well and everything we configured properly.

My problem is when I start Kde or try to shut dowm or logout I get the same error for knotify: Unable to use the Xine Multimedia Backend:Could not find plugin 'Xine' for application 'Knotify'

I get this same error with the application name at the end of it. If I open amarok I get the same error message with amarok at the end. If I try to click a misic file in dolphin same error message.

When I try to shut down or log out from menu I get the xine error and nothing happens. The only way I can log out is Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to get to the KDM log in screen and then I am able to shut down from the menu.

I have been looking on the forum and using google but have found nothing useful.

The error pops up when I try to play a cd or music on the hard drive.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine And KsCD Won't Play CDs Or DVDs

Nov 26, 2009

I have recently installed 11.2. I am having some sound woes. Vlc plays CDs and DVDs but Kaffeine won't. KsCD won't play CDs. When I try to use Kaffeine to play a CD I get:

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [cdda:/]
Opening kaffeine in the terminal gives:
user@linux-kxg1:~> kaffeine
user@linux-kxg1:~> CDROMREADTOCHDR: No medium found
CDROMREADTOCHDR: No medium found

When I try to use Kaffeine to play a DVD I get:

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd:/]

Do I have to add anything to /etc/fstab? /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd are pointing to /dev/sr0, but these apps are not seeing the device.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine Does Not Show Subtitles Anymore?

I'm using Kaffeine 1.0-svn3 from Packman repo on openSuse 11.2 with KDE 4.3.5. In Kaffeine, I can not find the menu where I can choose the subtitles. (I want to watch an avi-file with a separate subtitle-file in srt format). With openSuse 11.0, KDE 3.5.8. and an older version of Kaffeine, there was a possibility to select subtitle files (srt).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: .rmvb Files Not Playing Well On Kaffeine?

Sep 25, 2010

but after a forum search I only found one similar thread, but seemingly the issue was not totally solved. I just would like to suggest a solution (well, most likely a workaround) for .rmvb Real Player movies which don't work well on Kaffeine, without need to install other players or applications.I first saw many people had similar problems as me: Real Player movies just played sound but not video, or viceversa. I first tried installing w32 codecs, but this seems to be the good solution for 32 bit users, I use 11.3 x64 and didn't work for me. After some Google search I came to this page:Index of /pool/non-free/w/w64codecs/

Seems to be a Medibuntu repository, and I looked for a .tar file, since I was looking for a "w64" version of the codecs. I downloaded the latest .tar.gz file found on the page, the 20071007 one and uncompressed it. It has some codec files and a Readme which tells where to put the files. After that done, without rebooting Suse, I tried again to play the movie, and Kaffeine finally played it well, although now it pops a message saying Kaffeine closed unproperly whenever I close it after having played a .rmvb movie. I think that can be solved by updating Kaffeine, but haven't tried that yet

I originally had followed the guidance at Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums and had Amarok and Xine both working satisfactorily for several weeks. Now, for some reason, both apps begin to load and then crash.
