I have been running mediatomb for a short while, mainly to play my CD collection on the internet radio. The served is a x86_64 running OpenSuSE 11.1On jan 4 it ceased to work; the /usr/bin.mediatomb file vanished, and eversince I have been unable to get it going. i am using sqlite version.Anyone else got this proble? And even more importantly, how do i get the thing working again? I seem t have lost the db as well and it is not regenerating either
i've looked at serveral post all over the net but still can't get subtitles (.str files) to bind with the stream on mediatomb.
Mediatomb works fine with out the subtitle transcoding profile, but when added and mediatomb is restarted using sudo /etc/init.d/mediatomb restart I get the response "Fail" and Mediatomb will not start. If I change <transcoding enabled="yes"> to "no" then mediatomb works fine
Below is my config.xml

Sound was working just fine in my opensuse 11.2 install until recently. Now it looks like applications can't find the sound server. Under "Control Center" -> Sound it says "Waiting for sound system to respond" forever and doesn't go anywhere. In audacious it has error "alsa error No suitable mixer element found". Now my VirtualBox also gives an error about sound issue. All of these were working just fine early Yesterday.I installed bunch of updates given by YAST yesterday. Could something have messed this up? It is very annoying when sound system was working just fine before and now it suddenly doesn't! Sound like some from windows!
Recently audio stopped working in my flash video, when browsing in Chrome or Firefox, video is ok, but no audio. I don't know when did it stop to work. My system is SUSE 11.3 with all software up-to-date.
I was using a basic web cam, these are the specs on it equipped with an SD Drive and in order to see the contents of the SD drive, I would just have to switch the camera to MSDC in order for openSUSE 11.4 to load the SD drive on the camera. Well, for whatever reason, it stopped working! Just want to know if I did something wrong. This is the spec of the camera from the USB app.
EHCI Host Controller (1) Manufacturer: Linux 188.8.131.52-0.5-default ehci_hcd Serial #: 0000:00:0b.1 Manufacturer: Sunplus Co Ltd Serial #: 01.00.00 Class 0 ((Defined at Interface level))
I have been using my HTPC OpenSuse 11.2 for for some months now and everything is great, I'm very happy that I made the switch to Linux. Today for some reason none of my avi files are able to play. When I try a DVD there is also no play back of the video. Sound is working but video is not there. I have tried Kaffeine, VLC, SM Player. All no luck.
Here is the output after checking with Red Dwarf's troubleshoot thread:
I have been running X applications over my ssh connection for a long time using the command ssh -Y servername.example.com -p 222 . About a week ago, I noticed that it no longer works. I also tried ssh -X servername.example.com -p 222 but again, no success.
in 10.10 my internal audio and my external usb 5.1 soundcard worked fine, and everything was still ok after i upgraded to 11.04. i then tried to install an equaliser called "alsaequal" which required the alsa-driver-1.0.24 package, which i compiled ok. now i've lost all sound and can only see dummy output listed in sound preferences, and no hardware is detected.
sudo aplay -l doesn't detect anything either! i've folled all the steps on the sticky thread in multimedia, i tried purging and reinstalling all the alsa packages which didnt work, and then tried compilling alsa source packages, which wound up with errors. i was following this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1725874 which suggested running the alsa-info.sh script. i ran this and uploaded the output here:961380d1e9d23fi dont really understand any of this, but it seems to have detected my internal pci card but not my usb card.any help would be really appreciated after the hours spend fruitlessly trawling through these forums
Getting a little tired of applications working one day but not the next....this morning it's devede. Firstly it somehow VANISHED from the system...all on it's own. Then when I reinstalled it, it spits this guff out...........
yesterday it was mplayer...I watched a view videos...and then it just started segfaulting on every video including the ones it just played. As such as well as any advice re: devede I would like to hear how to turn all ubuntu's sneaky background crap off so it acts like linux and not windows.
Have been using Jaunty for a year now, but today my sound has stopped working. It works fine in windows which should eliminate any hardware problems. When I run a test through sound preferences I get to hear static.
Thanks to a previous post by a member here I got mediatomb up and running. However when I attempt to add my (username) file to the directory to access from my phone I get the "permissions denied" prompt. Is there any way to allow access for MediaTomb so I can access my files?
I had this setup and working before with some help, so I know it is possible.I want to use Mediatomb to transcode a Shoutcast NSV stream on the fly so I can watch it on my Playstation. I know I can use both mencoder/mplayer and VLC for the transcoding.I am running Ubuntu server 9.04 with the latest Mediatomb from the repo.
Debian 5 64 bitGnome, using compiz-fusion.Compiz had been working well ever since I installed it last year; a couple of days back there was a debian update (I think and x-server update was there); now compiz does not work anymore. if I select compiz as the window manager from the cmpiz-fusion icon, I cannot move/resize wndows, the titlebar disappears.
I'm wondering if anyone is having a similar problem as mine when running Hulu Desktop. The application starts fine, but when I try to select anything to watch, the green progress bar continually resets over and over again as it tries to buffer a video, and playback never starts as a result. This happens for low, medium, and high quality. Hulu Desktop was working perfectly fine a few months ago. I've always been running Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit) with the latest 64-bit Flash pluggins, and didn't have a problem before. Running Hulu Desktop from the command line doesn't reveal any error messages either.
My sound in Lucid was working fine (for months), and then, for no obvious reason, it stopped working today. I get no sound from any application. I have no idea what could have changed on my system to cause this.When I re-boot Lucid, the login sound plays, and sound works briefly, but it always stops eventually after I login.I am overwhelmed by the large number of different Ubuntu sound problem fixes
The problem i'm having is that my microphone stopped working after the upgrade to 10.10. Ubuntu doesn't seen any sort of input device any more, no line-in , no mic ( front as back ).Own on to the specs of my machine:It has a realtek ALC861-VD audio chip.2 mic jacks, 1 line-in , 2 out (front and back) and a coaxial port thing .The os is a upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 and everything except this and my tv card sound works.I have pulse audio tools and alsa mixer ( although it broke during upgrade ) installed.alsa info is available upon request, so is any other info may you need it.
I have a ASRock and Ubuntu 10.10. Everything worked fine till I had a short circuit. I started the computer, everything came up fine but the projector I have attached to the HDMI wasn't recognized anymore. I have a GeForce GT 425M and a Panasonic AE-2000 attached to it. The Xorg.0.log has following entries:
[ 12.838] (EE) NVIDIA(1): Unable to find available Display Devices for screen 1. [ 12.838] (EE) NVIDIA(1): No display devices found for this X screen
Anybody know how to get pictures off of one? I've got a computer with XP, but the software doesn't want to work. I've tried setting it up in a VM, but VirtualBox won't patch the camera through for some reason. The SD card adapter it came with stopped working, so that's a no-go.
I'm having issues with a Terratec T3 DVB-T USB stick. It seems that ubuntu is recognizing it, but it isn't usable in Kaffeine or VLC anymore.The funny thing is that is WAS working, but after installing some codecs, upgrading to a new kernel and rebooting it stopped working, and it is no longer detected by both apps... Kaffeine says "no available device found", VLC gives a similar error.I've tried booting the machine with the old kernel, but the issue remains. I don't think installing codecs (x264 for example, tried removing it, no success) has anything to do with it, so I wonder what went wrong?
Oh and one more thing; in gnome device manager there is a question mark next to the stick. So there might be something missing on the system after all. linux-firmware-nonfree was installed and reinstalled 10 times or something, still no go, not even after a reboot.
I tried upgrading from Jaunty to Karmic, which borked booting on that partition. I made a fresh install of Karmic on another partition which is booting fine, but I can't get Audio CDs to work, period. They worked in Jaunty and every release before that I had installed. Data CDs work fine in Karmic. I'm using plain ol' Ubuntu 32bit. I'm not sure where to start. There have been other threads where other people had identical symptoms. Either the problem went away mysteriously on its own, or they gave up because nobody believed them. In any case, I'm beginning to wish I had stuck with Jaunty.
For no conceivable reason, pulseaudio will no longer output via the spdif connection on my onboard sound card.Up until now, various applications could output digitally (mostly using via the alsa plugin) fine. DVD playback would passthrough DD/dts bitstreams if the application was set to communicate with alsa directly. The sound profile in Ubuntu's audio applet would have to be set to Analog Stereo Output for this to work, no idea why.
Now, all the works is digital passthrough via alsa (i.e DVDs). So definitely not a hardware issue. Regular audio either via the alsa plugin or using pulse directly does not work so no music/system sounds/flash etc. All sliders are unmuted (see pics linked below) and the volume meters all show movement with sound activity. Changing the Profile setting does nothing, I thought maybe it had been fixed so digital actually meant digital.This has happened before (sometimes triggered by DVD playback and DD passthrough) but usually fiddling with the mute toggles fixed it.Possibly this has been caused by a recent update.
I have an HP dvd1040 lightscribe DVD/CD burner. All through 8.10-9.04 it worked flawlessly. I used DeVeDe to convert tons of stuff and it always burned no problem. Same with my data discs of .jpgs and audio cds. I used Brasero mostly, because there were never any problems.
All that changed with my upgrade to 9.10 Now, the same burner simply will not work with any program. It will read a CD fine and it recognizes blank media, but every time I try to burn something, it fails. I've gone through Brasero, K3B, Gonmebaker, Xfburn. Every one returns an error.
When I attempt to burn, eacj of these programs starts the process and I can hear the drive spinning. It will spin, stop, spin, stop...
I've noticed lots of people having problems with burning and 9.10 but I thought I would ask about specifics with my HP drive.
I'm running 9.10 and I've being using skype for months with no issues, but today my microphone isn't working. I've tested the physical microphone on another machine and it works fine. I've tried skype, sound recorder and neither gets any input. I also have webcam and the microphone on that isn't working either.
Im running Ubuntu 10.10 and a couple of days ago, my usb sound deviced stopped working, possibly because of a recent update, as I didn't change something on my system as far as I can recall.My internal sound card still works just fine whatsoever, but my external devices,
E-MU 0202 USB Logitech USB Headset
which also used to work flawlessly in the past, don't play audio anymore.Although they are still detected and selectable in the PulseAudio Volume Control.I can exclude hardware problems because everything is fine in WinXP.
I'm using the 10.04 Netbook Edition on an ASUS EeePC 1005HA. Earlier, I had 9.10 Netbook Remix installed. Under 9.10NR, the webcam worked wonderfully in Cheese. Once I upgraded to 10.04NE, the webcam became sluggish to the point where it is now unusable. In video mode it captures about 1 frame per five seconds. Under 9.10NR, it regularly captured 60 fps.
Did the driver package for webcams change significantly between 9.10 and 10.04? I can't think of anything else that would cause this issue due to an OS upgrade.
Update Manager prompted me to run an update, which I did, then Flash stopped working after I ran ran the update.I first noticed the problem when I was using Chromium, trying to view a video on the BBC website, which displayed the message "Cannot play media. You do not have the correct version of the flash player. Download the correct version".So, I clicked on the download link, which took me to the Adobe site where I selected APT for Ubuntu 10.04+, but that didn't make any difference, so I then tried to view the same video using Firefox, but that displayed the same message.Could someone please tell me what I need to do, in order to get Flash working again?
I can't get any sound from either online audio or from a CD in drive. I've watched videos with sound with only occasional problems until today. I have been using MPlayer with internal audio 1 output - analog stereo output. When I start a vid, it will begin to D/L and play, but without sound. When I try to check the volume level everything pauses and then my system freezes. Sometimes it will release in a few seconds, but mostly it won't allow me to close Firefox and if I try to close the tab or window or Firefox, I have to reboot. Sometimes the vid will D/L without a problem, but no audio on playback. Oddly, when I bring up the system monitor, processors will show 1 or 2 cores stuck at 100% while the others fluctuate wildly. Download speed falls to almost nothing with occasional blips or nothing. I checked several sites and they all have the same problem. I have checked my physical connections, and bios settings.
There is an option for a RS780 Azalia controller 1 output Digital Stereo (HDMI) output, but I have not been able to make it work since the system was new. I don't know why.
This is the most recent SYSLOG file. The pulse audio errors have always been there, but since it didn't seem to affect playback, I didn't run it down.

I occasionally connect my laptop to my TV and watch shows on the larger screen.After upgrading to 11.04, "Detect Monitors" no longer detects my TV. This worked in 10.10 and 10.04, and possibly in earlier versions.
I'm running Xubuntu 10.10 on an ASUS Eee 1215T; the sound hardware on the system is a Realtek ALC259, and there's also sound output through HDMI with an ATI RS690/780 HDMI chip (both according to alsamixer). I was recently fiddling with the sound settings to try to get sound output through the HDMI port. I was successful in that, but I can no longer record sound using the built-in microphone. I'm pretty sure this is something I messed up, since sound recording worked correctly when I first installed Xubuntu, but I'm not sure what I need to do to fix it. I've tried all the promising-looking settings in gnome-volume-control and xfce4-mixer to no avail, and alsamixer also shows everything, both playback and capture, at 100% volume and un-muted; alsamixer also shows that the capture is turned on. I only used these tools (gnome-volume-control, xfce4-mixer, and alsamixer) to get the HDMI output working.
i upgraded to lucid, but now my video has stopped working... videos and iplayer work fine. the problem is with any videos (mp4, flv) opened in vlc or mplayer. i can hear sound fine but the screen is black. the same happens in skype. i followed the comprehensive guide and did all the steps, but no joy.
I just upgraded from 8.10 to 9.10 and now my sound doesn't work (note: I don't know if sound was working on 9.4, since I only ran that long enough to upgrade again) Sound was working just fine under 8.10, and I just tried booting up with a livecd I had handy, which is 8.04.1 and sound worked right off the bat, no problems.I've checked the volumes on everything, including the master volume which WAS initially set to 0.Sadly, turning that up did nothing.The Pulseaudio Volume Control app seems to think nothing's wrong- it's picking up the sound from various applications just fine, the volumes are all on, etc. (aplay lists my soundcard fine:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: VT1708B Analog [VT1708B Analog] Subdevices: 2/2
It's been along time since I had to put my tail between my legs anf come to the forum to ask a question. However, I have a problem that has me stumped and can't seem to find an answer for.
I've been using WinFF as a frontend for FFmpeg since I was on Intrepid. Every time the same thing after a fresh install. Add Medibuntu then install the extra codecs ffmpeg and winff and everything worked.
The other day I decided to do some spring cleaning on my machine and start over with a new installation of Lucid. I had the installer format the root partition while leaving /home alone. Afterward I went about reinstalling winff/ffmpeg just like I,ve done in the past. But now when I try to convert an AVI video into MP4 to play on my BlackBerry I get an error that states "unknown encoder libfaac"
I've checked in synaptic. It's installed. I tried another reinstall. No luck. Googled but couldn't find an answer that would work.
Everything was perfect before the reinstall. Now I get this error. I didn't upgrade or anything just a straight reinstall of Lucid.
In the last week, I noticed that my compaq 6710b physical controls for volume control/mute stopped working correctly. The volume control is not working anymore and the mute "unmutes" itself after precisely 1 minute.
I was wondering:
1/ did an update modify anything
2/ is there a way for me to know if the problem is physical? like a physical signal sniffer of some sort, or a log that indicates that I pressed mute
3/ Am I alone? and if not, does anyone know of a workaround?
