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.
As the title says, I don't see a 'VDPAU' option for video driver, in XINE config? I have installed Nvidia proprietary drivers (260.something) and XINE user level is set to 'Master of the known universe'...
My DVD player is on /dev/hdc but when I put 'xine /dev/hdc' on the command line I get an error saying 'There is no demuxer plugin available to handle /dev/hdc'. If I use the mount point /media/DVD instead of /dev/hdc it works fine. I am trying to get DVDs to play automatically but I can't see how to get xine to look for /media/DVD instead of /dev/hdc. I have tried changing the location on the Settings -> Media tab, and the line which says 'directory a media in dvd device will be mounted' in ~/.xine/config but neither worked.
I have xine in gnome on Slackware 13.1. On every other distro I've used, even when xine is in fullscreen, I can still hit 'g' to pop up the controls. But in slackware 13.1, fullscreen hides the controls. Anybody know if it's some strange way the slackware package was built? Or is a xine version thing where this behavior was changed? Or something with gnome? I don't recall the other versions of xine I had on other distros, but even Mint 8 that I have installed right now shows me the controls even in fullscreen.
I was trying to play an MP4 (h264) video from Meet The Gimp (in particular, this one) but both xine and dragonplayer would play a couple of seconds of it (poorly) and then segfault and die. The error spew looked like:
$ xine meetthegimp152.mp4 This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.5. (c) 2000-2007 The xine Team.
dragonplayer emitted the same output, so I assumed it was something amiss in one of the libraries they both use. mplayer plays the video, so I'm not without recourse, but it would be nice to know what's up with the segfaults. Anyone seen something like this? System specifics, if it matters:
When I try to update my system, I get the message: Error: Missing Dependency: xine-lib(plugin-abi)(x86-32) = 1.25 is needed by package xine-lib-extras-freeworld-220.127.116.11-3.fc10.i386 (installed) after a list of packages which are set to be updated.
I a trying to get DVD playback working on 11.2 64 KDE 3.5I did the one click install.Kaffeine is now broken)I launch xine from the command line and get this when I select DVDYou can see the DVD STRAWBERRY_MARSHMALLOW_VOL1 udf 4.3 GB 0.0 KB in under "my computer" in the image and it shows up under /mediaI have disk and cdrom enabled under my user account. What else do I have to configure so xine can access the DVD drive?
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?
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]
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.
I'm trying to watch a dvd on Lucid, but not vlc or xine can open it.I have the libdvdnav, libdvdcss and libdvdcss libraries from the medibuntu repositories installed.Here is the log I gget from vlc when I try to play the dvd. It seems as if cannot decode the format.
Code: libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 4.1.3 libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
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
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?
emachines W3115; CentOs 5.3 multiboot, KDE. Sound and video in general has worked fine on this machine. I have played MIDI files, converted them to WAV, and played them with one or more players, including noatun. When I install an audio CD, it brings up a window KDE Daemon which asks if I wish to:
Open in New window Extract and Encode Audio Tracks Play Do nothing. This is standard these days. The problem is, if I click on Play, it brings up a player called "player" which starts running smoothly, but no sound comes out of the speakers. I have no idea what 'player' is. There is no menu on it anywhere. DVD videos work fine, at least the Bonanza one I tried. If I open the CD rom, and right click a .wav file, either 'audio player' or 'mplayer' will play the file. Other choices don't.
*****If I go to the main menu ==> Multimedia and open Xine, then I can click on the CD button on Xine control and it will happily play the entire CD. *****
There are two ways to go on this. Unless someone has an idea what 'player' might be, and some idea how to fix it, another solution which I find suitable is to open XINE, when I click on that window choice stated above when CD is installed, which means I can select ALWAYS.I went to Configure on that mount window, and nothing seemed like it would actually let me configure anything at all. I figurer there is a script file which selects the command when PLAY is selected.
The problem is with a zillion Googles, I get all kinds of player information; all kinds of Centos information; etc., but nothing useful that has anything to do with my problem. how to change PLAY when it asks my choice on an installed CD, so it will run Xine? Note Centos forums does not allow a search on less then 3 characters, which makes it difficult to search for CD information.
I recorded a video from my DVB-T device Xine (and other Xine based players like Kaffeine) just play video and there is no audio (While other video formats has no problem! I tried with xine-ui , gxine and Kaffeine). But that video has no problem in mplayer or VLC! this is gxine report on video meta info:
Code: Audio Codec: AAC 2.0 (libfaad) Audio Format: 6 Channels, 32 bit, 44.1kHz, 54000 bps Video Codec: h.264/AVC (ffmpeg) Video Format: 720x576, 25.0 fps, 1.36:1, 0 bps System layer: MPEG_TS
I have been using Lenny for about a year now, but for some reason Xine has suddenly stopped playing mkv files. It plays everything else including flash. I only started using xine because the mkv files for some reason suffer from a lag between the video and audio in mplayer. I tried installing banshee and vlc but neither of them show video. So I was left with only Xine and it worked perfectly then it suddenly stops playing mkv. Is there something I need to install or remove, reconfigure? Do I just delete the Xine config folder in my home-folder? Lenny being what it is I can only install what is on the out-dated Lenny repos trying anything else like the unstable releases simply wants to uninstall my entire system.
My machine specs are: Acer Aspire 8930 Intel Centrino 2 NVidia geforce 9600m GS 512mb RAM 4GB I have the proprietary nVidia graphics drivers installed. So it is powerful enough.
