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:


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:


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.

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 :: 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.

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

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.

Fedora :: Xine Can't Find MPEG 1/2 Codec?

Nov 13, 2009

I am having some trouble with xine, and because of this I cannot get any media player to work. When I try to play mp3's in Amarok, nothing happens and the song does not play. When I try to open xine, it opens a window that says

The stream 'There is no MRL' uses an unsupported codec:
Video Codec: MPEG 1/2 (0x0)
Start playback anyway?

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?

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):

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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Seem To Find Padsp Anywhere

Jul 22, 2011

I've been running a java-based audio player for years and it works just fine on 11.2. When I run the exact same software on 11.3 it plays the first track of an album and then fails to play any subsequent track - with no apparent error message. It pretends to play it, advancing the progress bar correctly, but no sound is heard.Having looked for explanations on the web I found a claim that java based programs (at least Sun java 1.6) do not work well with pulse audio. Does 11.3 use pulse audio as a default?

Assuming it does, the solution suggested was to run java via padsp. I am not sure that this is the problem in my case - but I am happy to give it a try. However, I can't seem to find padsp anywhere. It is not available from the community repositories. Where can I get hold of it?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: MPlayer Can't Find Libvdpau?

Not sure when this first happened but I suspect it was just a couple of days ago. I had installed DeVeDe to burn some video to disc and it all worked fine but now when I try to run DeVeDe it says it can't find mplayer and you have to quit. I've tracked this back to mplayer and I'm getting this error from mplayer:

mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory libvdpau is installed so I don't know why it can't find the library.

I see there are issues with vdpau and nvidia but this shouldn't be affecting me should it??
