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
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <config version="1" xmlns="url . url xsi:schemaLocation="url 1 url <!-- Read /usr/share/doc/mediatomb-common/README.gz section 6 for more code....
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!
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 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.

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 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 did some mess with adobe flash player and now I have no soound on my Thinkpad T60.

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.
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 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 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
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.
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.
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.
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'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.
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?
