OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Gettin Sick About Video Players And Codecs In Suse

Mar 18, 2011

I like SuSE, I even got certified as admin of it but i'm going crazy every time when i want to watch some video. It's more easy to install and maintain some services then make suse play video. I'm going crazy when every player says to me that it doesn't contain any codecs. I heard i'ts all about licensing.. So, why doesn't Ubuntu havn't any problem to play my mp4 and other video formats just from the box?My case is regular.. No way to play mp4 in totem,banshee,xine no h264 decoder.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sound Not Working After Multimedia Codecs Installation

Aug 6, 2010

I am having trouble getting sound working under a brand new install of OpenSUSE 11.3. I am new to both SUSE and anything that's not Debian based, so please understand if I'm not able to comprehend a lot of what you say quickly. After a successful install, I attempted to play an MP3 file. This did not work in Amarok, and installation of it would also not work. So I went to this site, openSUSE 11.3 | SUSE Linux | Beginner's guide to multimedia codecs MP3 DVD 3D nvidia ati wireless and installed the multimedia codecs and all that. While I was there I also installed the ATI driver for my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 onboard chip. After booting back up, x would not start, so I fixed that with a command. After finally getting into X, sound wouldn't work, and I con not figure out why. I know if it installed something the affects my audio.

Debian :: Can't Seem To Install Codecs For Mplayer

Mar 9, 2011

I have an mkv file that I'm trying to player with mplayer, but no video is showing up. Mplayer was installed using apt-get install mplayer since ./configure when I try to build mplayer gives me a bunch of garbage:

Current branch master is up to date.
Detected operating system: Linux
Detected host architecture: i386


But, after installing mplayer using apt-get, I can't get any video for the file I'm trying to play. I've tried copying the files from "all-20110131.tar.bz2" to /usr/local/lib/codecs but I still don't even get a box for video. Everything works fine using the built in movie player--even the subtitles are shown correctly.

Slackware :: Using MPlayer With CoreAVC Codecs?

Nov 1, 2010

i'm running a 32bit system installed slackware 13.1.

i'd like to watch a 720p movie but it doesn't run smoothly. so i tried to install the coreavc codecs.

Did all these instructions step by step:


never got an error mesage. In my ~/.mplayer/config file I also added vc=coreserve,.

If I start the 720p movie, there aren't any changes. It is still jerking.

I'm not sure that MPlayer is really using the codecs, how can I look if it is using it or not?

Fedora :: Mplayer And Other Media Players?

Oct 13, 2009

I guess I need to start off by saying that I am new to Fedora. Most of my media files come from iTune. therefore, I have download mplayer, xmm and Audacious to play the ACC, Mp4 and Mpv files. None of the media players play ACC or mp4 files. I downloaded the ACC plugins for mplayer, XMM and Audacious but it still does not work. Also Mplayer will not show show a video file, but the sound works. When I start mplayer the screen freezes and glitches. I have screen shots showing the glitch issue.

When I try playing a movie using mplayer, it says The following plugins are required

MPEG -1 Layer 3 decoder
Divx mpeg-4 version 5 decoder

In the first case, clicking on the search option, error occurs (probably because of the proxy I am working behind) I can use yum install though behing the proxy. How can install these codecs from the command line ?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Install Restricted Multimedia Codecs?

Mar 7, 2010

I was using THIS guide to install restricted multimedia codecs. I got to the part where I had to switch system packages to the Packman packages. It came up with a number of dependency errors. I then had a stupid moment and told it to ignore the dependencies and break the applications. Now Xine won't even start, and Amarok seems to have disappeared on my computer. Oh and I also got a bunch of weird dependency problems when I was trying to install some of the packages from Packman too as listed on the guide. I also told it to ignore them when it couldn't find the dependencies. I'm scared I fudged multimedia up so badly I would have to do a clean install to get it back. BTW, I'm running openSUSE 11.2. I don't know if there are other specifications that matter.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Media Players?

Jun 20, 2010

but I still get sound upon testing my audio card as well as when using flash in a browser (....., etc).[URL].. There's my alsa information. Output of rpm -qa '*alsa*'

Output of rpm -qa '*pulse*'


I'm running openSUSE 11.2 on KDE, although the problem persists on other desktops. I followed the instructions on SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE, as well. If anyone needs any other information, please let me know. It worked before, I don't know what caused it to stop working.

As well, I've tried to install the restricted formats, but even when my audio did work, it wouldn't play them. I followed the instructions specific to my version on the restricted formats guide.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.2 - Batch Of Codecs To Work With MKV Files

Jan 25, 2010

System - openSUSE 11.2 "Emerald" KDE (with gnome base)
Player - vlc
I'm hoping to find a batch of codecs for my newly installed openSUSE OS. I have a very troublesome collection of .mkv files that took several codec packs to make them work. For a brief explanation, I had tried haali and matroska both together and they still didn't work on certain mkvs. I ended up using CCCP, but that's win only as far as I can tell. It took the latest update of CCCP to work on all of my mkvs.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: DVD And MP3 Playback - Running All The Necessary Files - Codecs - Apps

Dec 26, 2009

For the longest time DVD and MP3 playback have haunted me. I fully understand the idea behind open source and not packaging the codecs with the OS. My question is this: I am running openSUSE 11.2 on my lappy. When I try to follow steps online to install all the necessary codecs, plugins and applications. I always seem to run into dependency problems. Can ANYONE out there give a step by step walk through of installing and running all the necessary files, codecs, apps. from a fresh install that has worked for them to get media to work in suse 11.2? For the sake of example and trying to get this process done right lets assume that I have installed suse fresh on my system and want to play DVD's and listen to MP3's.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: How To Enable Autodetect Option For Codecs In Totem

I was just playing with Fedora 13 and found that when I try to watch any AVI file it searches all required Codecs from RPM Fusion repository and install it. I was just wondering if this can be done on the openSUSE because what I know about Fedora is, it doesn't customize the products and uses as it is. If someone know how to enable such Autodetecting in Totem.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Warnings About Legalities Of Downloading The Codecs/files?

Apr 12, 2011

I put a few Itunes songs into my music folder and tried to play them. It didn't. Then, I got to reading in the forums and noticed that there was a "one click" configuration for Gnome users. After doing some more reading, I saw a lot of references to restricted codecs and things of that nature. After beginning the one-click process and then aborting midway through installation, three questions come to mind:

1) Why all the warnings about legalities of downloading the codecs/files? If I bought the music and I use the codecs to listen to it, where does legalities come into play?

2) While installing some of the different files, etc in the one-click process, I received a few warnings that a particular file was not from a trusted source (I don't remember the info verbatim) and then it gave me an email address, presumably from the developer, and asked if I wanted to install it anyway.

3) If I do go through the one-click process, will I be able to listen to I-tunes or am I pretty much screwed on I-tunes on linux?
