OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Xine No Longer Keeps Screensaver From Turning On

Feb 15, 2011

So im not sure exactly what caused this but when playing movies through the xine-ui has stopped keeping my system active causing my monitor to turn off. This started happening about a week ago and I cant remember installing any xine related updates, but was wondering if anyone knows how to make xine keep the system active to prevent this. I could have sworn there was an option for this but I cant seem to find it anymore.

Ubuntu :: Password Prompt Continues After Turning It Off In System > Prefs > Screensaver

Aug 20, 2010

How do I disable the screensaver password prompt when I've already turned it off in System > Preferences > Screensaver? I tried checking and unchecking the box again and I also tried rebooting.

Another strange phenomenon is that after I enter my password, I'm now disconnected from the wireless network. Any thoughts?

I'm using 10.04 lucid lynx.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok And Xine Crash Upon Startup

Feb 18, 2010

I am running openSUSE 11.2 KDE desktop. (Also use LXDE as an alternative desktop because I am running on a P3 with 512 of RAM.) 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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Configure Phonon's Xine Backend?

Jun 24, 2010

I have installed smplayer, and configured it to use the code...

Kaffeine (and dolphin's video preview) seem to use phonon's xine backend, and I can't find out what video output it uses. I'm guessing its plain old xv as it seems accelerated but turnes into a blue square when I move the window.

How do I tell the xine backend to use the same vo as smplayer?

OS 11.2 64 bit, KDE 4.4.4 (Factory)

(ps: I have a 'legacy' ATI graphics chip, xpress 200M working with the opensource radeon driver, which is brilliant btw).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: KDE 4 Phonon Xine-backend Configuration

Sep 6, 2010

So I have made an interesting Discovery with regards to using KDE4 Kaffeine version 1 and Dolby Digital 5.1. The basic problem seems that there is no way to configure the Phonon xine Backend in KDE 4 for use with Kaffeine version 1. There is however, a xine-config file located at:

Code:
~/.kde4/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config

There appears to be no GUI way to change the default xine configuration (for use with KDE 4 applications) and while you can do so manually, the options seem bewildering, at least to me.

When you run xine-ui or Kaffeine/KDE3 there is an option to adjust the xine audio configuration using a GUI. Any changes made here are ignored by KDE 4 applications. As luck would have it you can copy the old xine configuration (adjusted by Kaffeine/KDE3) over the new one for Kaffeine in KDE4. The old text file configuration is located at:

Code:
~/.xine/config

If you were to use the old Kaffeine/KDE3 to adjust your xine audio configuration and then copy this file to the Kaffeine Version 1 KDE4 location, those changes should be used by the new version 1 Kaffeine in KDE 4. After Kaffeine/KDE3 audio settings work as you desire, open up a terminal session and make the following file copy. You must overwrite or rename the old configuration file for backup.

Code:
cp ~/.xine/config ~/.kde4/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config

Since this new xine configuration is in the new Kaffeine version 1 KDE4 location, it may only modify how the new Kaffeine works and nothing else running in KDE4, but it is still an interesting find.

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 20071007-0.pm.1.1-i586 and I don't get offered a _64 package. Is this OK? What else could be the problem

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Sound In Gnome - Installing Xine Backend ?

Jul 23, 2011

In Gnome and XFCE I always have a choppy music playback. The music is never played smoothly. There is always hesitations in the playback, as if the CPU is running on 100% and cannot cope with the system load.

One of the reasons for that is (in my case) Pulseaudio.

Another reason is Gstreamer. When I choose Gstreamer as backend in KDE, I get the same choppy musicplayback as in Gnome or XFCE. With Xine as backend in KDE, everything is fine. So my conclusion is: with Xine, the sound would be fine in Gnome too.

So, I wonder if it is possible to use Xine as backend in Gnome too. Does anyone have experience with running Xine in Gnome and/or XFCE? What do I need to do to set Gnome/XFCE, so that it uses Xine instead of Gstreamer?

Or is there maybe a special setting, I have to apply? In gstreamer-properties I have tried all possible settings, but this didnīt change anything to the quality of sound.

My experience is also: this choppy sound is hardware-independend. It doesnīt matter which hardware I use, the sound is choppy. It is also distro-independend. The sound is choppy in openSUSE (gnome and in KDE with applied Gstreamer backend), in Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Fedora with Gnome, Linux Mint with Gnome.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Screensaver Starts When Playing Movies In Kaffeine

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xine Plays Dvd's But Thinks It Can't (8.04)?

Jan 21, 2010

In Hardy Heron, after installing xine and the usual stuff, and setting xine as the default dvd player in /etc/gnome/defaults.list in the usual way, and also linking /dev/dvd to /dev/dvd2, when I pop in a commercial dvd for autoplay, or select xine from the context menu to play it, it starts to play fine, but also produces the "source can't be read" messagebox, which goes away after being OK-clicked 10 (exactly!!) times.Launching xine directly from the application menu does not produce this problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xine DVD (iso) Playback Broken In 10.10?

Mar 23, 2011

I recently updated all my desktop/laptop and MythTV boxes to 10.10 and now Xine freezes if I hit any key or try to exit. No error message or anything, just freezes. It happens on ALL my machines. I can watch the movie fine as long as I don't hit any keys

sample launch:

xine --no-splash -V Xv dvd://mnt/mserv/DVD/ZATOICHI.iso

Everything worked fine in 10.04. I would love to eventually switch to MPlayer, VLC, or something else but I haven't found one that reliable supports menus, chapters, multiple audio tracks, 5.1 surround output, etc. from an ISO file. Why has no one caught up to Xine?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Blank CDROM And DVDs No Longer Recognized

Mar 19, 2010

11.2, KDE4, 2.6.31.5-0.1-desktopx86_64 GNU/Linux, latest updates

Weird, but suddenly just recently my system stopped 'seeing' any blank media. I have burned all sorts till now without problems, from K3B, Lemonrip, Handbrake, growisoft on the CLI, etc. Some errant update, perhaps?

I have done some digging ... added my user to cdrom, added an entry in fstab (K3B didn't like it so I deleted it), wodim -scanbus tell me I have '1,0,0 100) 'Optiarc ' 'BD ROM BC-5500S ' '1.03' Removable CD-ROM' ...

It can, however, read written Cds and DVDs without problems.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Make Xine Autoplay DVDs?

Sep 8, 2010

I have just installed 10.04 on my mothers PC. I prefer to use Xine as the DVD player, sound works, playback is smooth, and, most importantly, because menus work, making it easier for her to use. I have tried setting the DVD preference as xine with custom command but instead nautilus opens the dvd as folder. It almost worked in 9.10 (a bunch of error messages pop up sometimes "the source can't be read you don't have rights etc....) and worked perfectly before that. The error messages in 9.10 only pop up when DVD autoplays I've just had a thought that this might be because she is not administrator? (can't get to her PC at moment)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stuttering In Amarok From Phonon-backend-xine?

Mar 5, 2010

In Karmic's Amarok 2.2, when you pause and then play, the sound usually stutters a few times before it starts playing smoothly. I originally thought this was a pulseaudio issue, as stuttering problems have been reported with pulse, but that wouldn't explain why sound is fine in mplayer, audacious, vlc, dragon player, and virtualbox. Only amarok has this problem. I found the cause of the problem: phonon-backend-xine. These steps will get rid of the stuttering problem:

1. Install phonon-backend-mplayer. You can get it from Rog131's PPA: [URL]

2. In Multimedia and Sound Configuration, which you can reach through amarok's Playback settings, on the Backend tab, click the arrows to move mplayer up above xine.

3. Quit and restart amarok.

There are some tradeoffs for good sound. Amarok seems to have some bugs when the sound backend is not xine, and bookmarks and OSD are broken when this backend is playing the sound. When you quit Amarok, it can't bookmark your place so it doesn't restart from where you last were, and after the track changes once, the OSD when you hover over the tray icon only says "Amarok - No track playing." You have to open Amarok to find that info. Are there any settings I can access for phonon-backend-xine that could fix the stuttering issue? The problems with the mplayer backend are minor compared with xine's bad sound, but I would like nice sound, OSD, and bookmarking.

OpenSUSE :: Xine And GStreamer - Sliders Not Working

Apr 18, 2010

I have a couple of audio problems that are bugging me.
The first one:
I have two backends for phonon: Xine and Gstreamer. :
Xine has the following devices listed:
And GStreamer has the following:

Almost everything works good with Gstreamer except that I cannot skip through song length in amarok (cannot do Fast forward or rewind). I have some long songs (non-stop remixes) and I want to play at different positions. If I select Xine backend, skipping works, but I get a new problem. The PCM slider (which I use as the main slider to work for both Master and LFE (subwoofer) I have) won't work. It won't respond to PCM slider. and The master channel works only if I lower the volume all the way to a little value (around 5%-10%). From withing amarok. If I don't use PCM slider, I cannot lower or raise the volume with one slider. I have to do it manually for both LFE and Master. (See the working sliders below):

Second problem.
My kmix will show these sliders everytime my computer boots.and everytime it works. Working sliders: But each time I "logout" and log back in, I get these sliders instead. I tried creating a new user, but the problem persists. And the problem is that I do not get any sound at all, regardless of sliding every single sliders all the way up.
not_working sliders (which I get ONLY but everytime I logout and log in):
Here is my alsa-info: [URL]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fglrx Turning Vlc Into A Snail?

May 28, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit version and everything worked fine so far except for the fglrx driver as it seems. I wasn't able to enable desktop effects and couldn't start games like openarena or nexuiz.

Therefore, I installed the fglrx driver from ATI's site and got everything working fine. Unfortunately it introduced a problem with vlc and the window manager in general. If I go into fullscreen in vlc it takes at least 2 seconds until the screen reacts. Also, if I tab through windows there is at least a second delay which is all very very annoying. I removed the driver again and re-installed fglrx from the repos. I now have two entries for the Catalyst Control Center (normal + administrative) under System->Prefrences which is annoying but not the reason for this thread.

The main problem remains the delay with window tabbing (with desktop effects disabled) and vlc going into fullscreen (this also applies for ..... videos which also lag in fullscreen mode).

The card is a Radeon HD 4830, processor is an AMD Phenom II X4 810.
