Software :: H264 Encoded QuickTime Movies Playback In FC9?
Jul 12, 2009
Trying to play back h264 encoded Quicktime movies in FC9. On the Gnome desktop. Totun needs some non-existant H264 pulgin. Installed Xine, but no UI appears, only a blank screen. Yum can't find VLC. I have downloaded Quicktime for FireFox, which appears to work on many of the website. What am I missing ?
As far as I can tell, I have all the applicable applications and plugins (for this, Debian 5.0.6 installation). I type in Code:about:plugins in either iceweasel or epiphany browser and get a list that includes:
Code: Installed plugins Find more information about browser plugins at mozilla.org.
I'm trying to have QuickTime playback support in Firefox. I did find some "compile from code" packages and some rpms but they apparently have quite a bit of dependencies, at least one of them had quite a lot! Since figuring out dependencies is one of YUM's main attractions I gave it a go with:
I installed opensuse 11.3 KDE for the first time last week. Amarok works fine with mp3 files. Also I installed VLC and kaffiene with all available codecs but unfortunately I have no sound in my avi movies. I can not know what is the reason although it was working fine in windows.
I recently upgraded my machine to a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ in the hopes of being able to stream HD movies to my ps3 and tv. I currently dont have my ps3 hooked up. But yesterday I wanted to watch HD movies from my server (samba share) from my laptop hooked up to the tv via CAT5. The issue is that when I started the movie, playback back was skipping. When I watch the movie on the Ubuntu server no skipping. I am wondering if this has to do with my switch being 10/100 and not GB? Im not trying to watch them over wifi as that would be impossible. The connection is CAT5 cabling. Should I try a GB switch instead?
I made a mistake and bought a $50 IBM A50 to use as a media server...Installed Karmic on it and figured out that the video card couldn't handle anything beyond the factory setting of 800:600, something like that...
I have not taken the time to learn about video cards and now I suffer....I found this "solution" EVGA 256-P1-N399-LX GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card
Which has mixed reviews on newegg
I want to use this machines( or another) to playback movies on my flat screen. I suppose I need to find out more about my TV as well...
I cannot play encoded dvds, or access the menu options of dvds with menus.1. My dvd drive appears to work fine. It can play anything else i put in it.2. I have enabled Restricted Formats and Medibuntu. Both are fine.3. I have installed libdvdcss2 and libdvdread4. Both are fine.4. I have installed VLC. It can see the tracks on the disk but cycles through them without playing anything.5. I have Gnome MPlayer. It can see the tracks on the disk, but not open the menu screen. It can even play tracks on the disk, but only from 25 minutes into the track and onwards. (?!?) The image and audio work fine so it can obviously read the data, but it can't manage the menu and finding the first 25 minutes of each track.. Everything is up to date. Nothing appears broken.I have been using Ubuntu for 3 years now and have challenged many Windows friends to change. Some have. But without a dvd player... That's going to be like selling a three-wheeled car.
I have a URL that I'm trying to redirect back to the homepage on my site. For some reason since it contains hex I can't seem to get it to work.
A sample source URL is:
The destination URL is:
I've tried many different things to no avail.
Some things include:
Redirecting source URLs with REG_LOGINfromURL will get me what I need. Some of my examples work when the source URL does not contain enconded characters, so if the URL was instead [url] it would redirect.
I am currently trying to play a VC-1 encoded MKV-file under Linux (Ubuntu 10 / latest Mint, both are affected), but VLC reports that it isn't able to decode WVC-1. VLC is able to play this file under Fedora 13, OS X and Windows, while both mplayer and ffplay are able to play this movie under Ubuntu 10 and Linux Mint.
I made two log files that where previously posted on the VLC forum, where I was told that it looks like there is a problem with the avcodec. I have basic experience with compiling stuff, but my knowledge of C++ and the linux internals is close to null. Which packages do I need to build from source in order recreate avcodec and its dpendendcies?

Link to log running Fedora13 (works, but I prefer debian based linux):[url]
And last but not least a link to my thread on the VLC board:[url]
I have a few hard disks fully encrypted with Truecrypt. They have not been partitioned, just encoded right of the bat with Truecrypt. I just use Truecrypt command line to mount them, supplying password whe asked.
So from a linux standpoint, they show up as disks with unallocated space.
But I recently updated (moved) my linux from Ubuntu to Kubuntu. In the process, the partition manager asked where to install the new OS, I answered erase existing system and install there. But I noticed too late that the install program decided to install GRUB on another disk, one of my encrypted disks, instead of the system disk already selected. I don't know why, but it did. Now this disk shows up in linux as a disk with multiple partitions, and of course I can no longer mount it with Truecrypt.
I haven't done anything with the disk, except from trying to mount it in Truecrypt. So apart from the GRUB install, nothing else was touched on the disk.
I know Truecrypt place a backup header towards the end of the encrypted disk, so it should still be there intact, but since I now have multiple partitions, Truecrypt is certainly confused and cannot see the end of the disk since I now have 4 of them (partitions).
I am not a beginner but I am hesitant to attempt something that could kill all hopes of recovering the disk. It is a 2TB disk with a lot of data on it. I could probably make a copy of the entire disk but this means buying another 2TB disk....
One of the first idea was to kill the current partition setup to leave it "unpartitionned", so like it was before, maybe Truecrypt will now find the backup header. But before I do so, I would like opinion of real experts on linux.
Within Evolution, the message body is blank but there is an attachment. This attachment may itself be blank or broken in some way.
If I can alter settings as recipient so that these fractured messages don't happen, terrific. If there is some SaveAs & filter that will let me extract the content, that is good too. If there are settings that the sender might enable on their end, I could always ask, but I'd still need that filter.
I routinely get email with "attachments" . These attachments are supposed to be other messages being forwarded to me. These 2nd, 3rd, ... level messages are routinely broken somehow so that I cannot read them with Evolution or Thunderbird. I can save as mumble.eml and scan with a text editor, but then I find large block of mime-encoded content that is often some sort of image file: JPG, PNG, PDF etc.
# Which means: at x=1680, draw a 20x20px grey block, then back up -10px and draw a "1" on the block.I figure that the two awk's I've used can be combined into one -- but I began having problems with removing the single quotes if I did it within the awk, which is why I stuck a `tr` in the middle.
I know this sucks. So, if someone has some ideas or thoughts on something else to do with this JSON data, that's less convoluted that where I'm currently going, I'll be happy to hear about it.
PS - I know this whole post is possibly hard to understand -- if you need more info (you mean you're interested in this mess?? )
Is there some kind of universally recognized pragma that one can insert at the beginning of a text document to designate it to be UTF-8 encoded (or any other encoding)? I've seen certain editors insert encoding comments, and one or two compilers that have an encoding pragma. But I was wondering if anyone has tried to establish some kind of universal tag format for text documents.
I can successfully play h264 and vc1 encoded HD videos with vdpau acceleration using Gnome MPlayer or SMplayer, but in order to accomplish this, I have to provide -vc ffh264vdpau/ffvc1vdpau as an extra argument for MPlayer. Now this totally sucks as I have to manually type this in for HD videos and remove for all others every single time... What's worse is that I have to know what the video is in advance so I first need to analyze it before playing.So, I figured that if there's a way to tell MPlayer to aways use ffh264vdpau codec for h264 and ffvc1vdpau for vc1 videos, I'd be free to just click and watch.
I am running 64 Bit Debian, 6.0 install with VLC and libavcodec52, libavformat52, and libavdevice52 installed. I also installed recordmydesktop which creates an ogv file, and I would like to use VLC to convert the file to an MP4. Then I can add it to a project under Open Shot Video Editor.
I get the following errors when I try to convert the file: Streaming / Transcoding failed: It seems your FFMPEG (libavcodec) installation lacks the following encoder: H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10). If you don't know how to fix this, ask for support from your distribution. This is not an error inside VLC media player.Do not contact the VideoLAN project about this issue.
Streaming / Transcoding failed: It seems your FFMPEG (libavcodec) installation lacks the following encoder: MPEG AAC Audio. If you don't know how to fix this, ask for support from your distribution. This is not an error inside VLC media player. Do not contact the VideoLAN project about this issue. I've used Google to search for the error message, searched on the forum.videolan.org, and searched on this forum. So far, I've not found a lead to the solution. What am I overlooking/missing?
I recently migrated my system to Karmic 9.10 from Hardy 8.04 Now that I want to convert some .avi videos to H.264 in Kino for upload, it doesn't work. In Hardy all was fine, I'd import the .avi files and export to h.264 mp4, then upload to ..... etc ... no problems. But with karmic; after I import the file into Kino, I then trim out the bits I don't want. Next I go to Export and select H.264 MP4 Single Pass (ffmpeg), then click the Export button; it 'locks the audio' and that's it - takes 5 seconds to 'finish' no matter how long the video clip is, and no mp4 file is generated or appears in the selected folder (same result with H.264 MP4 Dual Pass).
I have some videos in an mkv container that are 1920 pixels wide, but less than 1080 pixels high. This causes problems when playing the videos on a PS3 (after converting to an AVCHD system), because the PS3 won't centre the video, leaving a very large black bar at the bottom but none at the top. Is there a way to use mencoder or ffmpeg to losslessly add padding to the top and bottom to make the video 1920x1080?
I currently have mplayer installed with the binary codecs in place, but it seems that mplayer is quite picky with which files it wants to play.
I have three files that are all mp4 h264 .mkv's. One of them is ~20 minutes long (720p) and mplayer seems to do just fine. Another is around ~90 minutes (1080p) and within seconds the audio gets out of sync. The third file is also around ~90 minutes long (1080p) and refuses to play at all, throwing a mess of:
[h264 @ 0x5fdbac0]AVC: Consumed only 1 bytes instead of 521
Error while decoding frame!
The machine is fairly old (Athlon 64 X2 4200+), but I don't think it's a hardware performance issue. When it was running Windows XP it could handle any HD video I threw at it. Each one of these files plays perfectly on my Windows machine with Media Player Classic Home Cinema + ffmpeg...
Is there something wrong with ffmpeg or is support for h264 just not there yet?
I can't for the life of me find the option to encode my video in H264 in Pitivi. There's just about every other codec imaginable in the list. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit and everything is up to date.
I've setup a EEEBox 1501P exclusively to work as a Media Center. So i've picked up Ubuntu 11.04 x64, and Boxee x64 (latest), and installed the nVIDIA drivers directly from site. The problem is that video playback at 720p is a bit sloppy! I've tried on VLC player for example, and the CPU cores are at 10%. But when i use Boxee, one core gets stuck at 100%, and the others at 10%.
So this means that currently, boxee, cannot handle hardware acceleration in x86_64 Linux! My question is:What software can I use to set-up my Ubuntu-based Media Center?
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:
