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.
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.
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?
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'...
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.
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 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.
I have a USB dongle to watch tv (Asus U3100 mini) that supports DVB-T. I live in portugal and DVB-T here uses MPEG4 h246 codec. Until now the only app I can have image and sound is VLC. However with VLC I can't schedule recordings and other features that totem + gnome-dvb-daemon has (or mythtv, also no sound with it). I have all related gstreamer plugins, ffmpeg, x264 libs and I've tried to install everything related with mpeg and aac. i don't know what I'm missing here, Video with totem is also a little jerky compared to VLC and xine.
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.
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).
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.
