Slackware :: Audacious Can't Play Apple Lossless?

Apr 3, 2010

I was experimenting with some .m4a files today (apple lossless) and I was trying to play them through audacious and I keep getting "Unsupported Audio track type" even though it has a apple lossless codec. Nevermind I got it, it was the m4a plugin conflicting with the apple lossless plugin, I just disabled the m4a plugin and it works now.

Slackware :: KDE4 Can Only Play One Audio Stream

Apr 2, 2010

Every KDE4 application seems to take over the sound card. If I'm playing a song in Amarok and launch Dragon Player, the song stops. If I'm playing a song in an xterm using "mplayer -ao alsa" and then launch Dragon Player, the song stops. Most annoying of all, if I'm playing music in _anything_ and then a notification sounds in Kopete, the music stops.However, if I launch two xterms and play two different MP3s by running "mplayer -ao alsa" in each one, both songs play. So software mixing is working with my sound card.

This made me wonder if KDE is outputting music through OSS instead of ALSA. Well, KDE's audio backend is set to xine, and xine is outputting through ALSA. Under System Settings->Multimedia->Audio Ouput, the only devices I see.

Slackware :: Can't Play Movies In VLC - Doesn't Support Audio Or Video Format XVID

Feb 23, 2011

I like this linux distribution more than the others that i have used, because is more stable for my work. But there are some little problems that I can't solve. I'm using it with a laptop HP G60 and i can run OpenOffice, Mozilla and some other programs (python, grass, qgis) that used for work at the office, but when I go home and want to watch a movie with my girl, listen some music or any other simple task, i find a lot of little problems:

1. Adjust the bright of the screen, the Power Management Guidance don't do it and I really need it.

2. Can't play movies in VLC "No suitable decoder module. VLC does not support the audio or video format XVID. Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this"

3. And today I can't play music because there is a message "KDE detected that one or more internal sound devices were removed" this is: Output HDA Intel, INTEL HDMI 0 (HDMI Audio Output)

I know maybe these problems are stupid but in windows is easier to fix them. I'm tired of search in google because i just find solved problems for Ubuntu and it takes a lot of time.

Fedora X86/64bit :: 14 Cannot Play More Than 1 Multicast Stream

Aug 17, 2011

I have a project to run simultaneously up to 8 video streams, from a pool of about 100 multicast cameras, and display them on 4 monitors. The PC I am using is a brand-new dual CPU 4-core Intel Xeon E5620 2.40GHz, Intel S5520SCR motherboard, 8GB memory and nvidia Quadro NVS 450 graphics. It's running Fedora 14 64-bit and outputs on 2x2 LCD monitors using Xinerama. So far, so good.

Playing a single video stream from any camera works fine. The problem is that, when I open a 2nd media player window with the purpose of playing other camera, all those two video windows play a single stream. It doesn't matter which camera stream I opened first, as soon as I open a 2nd stream, both windows show the same stream (either the first, or the second, at what seems to be a random choice). Further, a 3rd or a 4th video window will also play the same stream. In other words, one stream sort of "contaminates" all the other streaming windows to play that particular stream only. The problem remains the same even when the following changes are applied:

- graphics driver: nvidia or nouveau;
- video player: vlc or mplayer;
- number of active monitors: 4, 2 or 1.

I am really puzzled because, on the same computer, Windows XP SP3 32-bit runs beautiful. I can smoothly play up to 12 video streams and some computer applications, simultaneously. I cannot believe that an obsolete OS such as Windows XP can outperform by a long shot Fedora 14 64-bit in video streaming projects. Just doesn't make sense.

Note: I have also tested Windows 7 64-bit, it also runs multiple video streams in parallel without any problems, but Win 7 has issues that XP is free of (such as graphics output glitching every few seconds).

Ubuntu :: Play A Video Stream Of .mov Format?

Jul 17, 2010

I'm finding it very difficult to play a video stream of .mov format. The Totem Media player gives me an error : GstDecodeBin2: This appears to be a text file

Even Real Media Player for linux is giving me an error: General error: HXR_CORRUPT_FILE (0x80040091)

Even VLC hangs on trying to play it.

(BTW the file isnt corrupt though, its apple's last night's iphone press conference from their official website - [URL])

Software :: Play Quicktime Stream - Can't Find Plug-in

May 19, 2010

I want to play a Quicktime stream and can't figure it out. When I try to play it either in Firefox or Movie Player, it says I need a text/html decoder plugin, but doesn't find one from the autosearch. Downloaded Ubuntu Restricted Extras from the Software Center, but no luck (don't know if I'm supposed to "do" something after that). MPlayer doesn't work on my computer, and I've also downloaded Avidemux, thinking maybe I'd get the right codec or plugin, but again, no luck. I am on Ubuntu 10.04 on an Eee PC, if it makes a diff.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dvd Drive Doesn't Play Store Bought But Does Play My Copies Of Them

Mar 10, 2010

After many days of trying to tweak Ubuntu 9.10 desktop i386. This subject will focus on my dvd drive. ...Here is what I have done, but I'm not sure what I did or still need to do, or to do different. ...

Basically the problem is, I can't play store bought DVDs, but I can play my copies of them.

When using MDPlayer that I added to Ubuntu, I can play the copies of my store bought DVDs, but not the originals. However, when using Ubuntu 9.10's movie player, it wont do anything and I'll have to do a force quit to close it.

I learned that this may because there is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution, as I'm sure you already knew.
...Yet, Most people have worked around these issues.

I came across the Medibuntu site: [url]

Running the Terminal, I added the bash command that adds Medibuntu's repositiry to Ubuntu. It also adds Medibuntu's GPG key to the keyring.
(The sudo wget - etc etc etc --quiet update)

Then I jumped down to the... "This command should be run in the Terminal, after adding the repository:" ...And did that. (sudo sed -e 's/ etc etc etc /medibuntu.list)

Software :: Totem Won't Play Ripped .wavs - GStreamer Encountered A General Stream Error

Apr 20, 2010

Hello. I use dvd::rip 0.98.10 to create .wav sound files from DVDs and then play them in Totem Movie Player 2.28.2 (using GStreamer 0.10.25) mainly because I like the visualizations. It always used to work, but a recent batch will not play. I get: GStreamer encountered a general stream error. I probably used a more recent version of dvd::rip for the ones which don't play. Both MPlayer and VLC Media player plays them without a problem and older rips play fine in Totem too. The Audio/Video properties of a 'faulty' file (as shown in Nautilus) are greyed out for codec, channels etc., whereas a 'good' file shows Audio properties as Uncompressed 16-bit PCM audio etc., but running soxi on a good or bad file gives the same (good) results. I'd like to get this working, without doing anything to the .wavs preferably, so I guess I need to do something to Gstreamer, but I'm really not sure how to proceed. I'm using Linux Mint 8 64bit (rt kernel) and very nice it is too.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Firefox Plugin Doesn't Stream / What To Do?

May 6, 2010

I installed the greasemonkey script "..... without flash auto" to replace the ..... player with the default totem plug-in in firefox. The script is awesome because now I don't get bogged down with flash when watching ......

Everything works as expected, but the problem is that the plugin doesn't stream, I have to wait until the video finishes loading before I can play it. Ironically, if i don't use the plugin and directly open the video cache in /tmp with totem, it was able to play even when the video wasn't finished loading.

I am not sure if this is normal, but I find it a huge annoyance. Does anyone else running this script have the same problem? I don't know if it is the script, the plugin, or my configs in general. A push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

im running Xubuntu 10.04 btw

Fedora :: DVD Doesn't Play ?

Jul 30, 2011

This is about a DVD that I have that was recorded from a VCR tape, if that makes any difference. I've been trying to rip the DVD to my hard drive, without much luck. I just tried to play it, and I'm finding that I can't even do that, so maybe I need to put the horse in front of the cart and get playback working. The video has chapters, but no titles.

I've got Kaffiene, Movie Player,VLC and Xine. I've gotten livinia and followed the guide here:[url]

I have libdvdcss (I think that's what it's called). I ran"ln -sf /dev/scd1 /dev/dvd" per a post that leigh123linux gave.

Kaffiene shows " Cannot find plugin for MRL"dvd:///dev/sr0"

Xine shows "The stream "There is no MRL" uses an unsupported codec: video codec MPEG 1/2 (0x0) null"

Movie Player shows the opening frame as a thumbnail, but doesn't play it.

VLC seems to think it's a regular file.
