Ubuntu Multimedia :: 1080p Video Playback Working With NVidia Ion And Lucid?

Jun 6, 2010

I have a Zotac IONITX-F-E motherboard (Intel Atom Dual Core 1.6 GHz + Nvidia ION) -based box with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit installed. Do you or does someone you know have the same setup as I do? If so, do they have 1080p video playback working? If so, what driver are they using? I've tried following every guide I could find, but no luck so far. I have libvdpau1 and libvdpau-dev installed. I have the nvidia 195.36.24 driver installed (I used the nvidia installer). I have mplayer installed (which I compiled from source with --enable-vdpau).

I try to run mplayer with this command:
mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau path/to/myfile.mkv

I get the following message in my terminal:
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
I have libvdpau-dev and libvdpau1 installed.

After Googling this problem, I found a post that suggested the following steps:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvidia-vdpau
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-195 nvidia-195-modaliases

It turns out that I had already added the nvidia-vdpau repository. However, despite that, I get:
E: Couldn't find package nvidia-glx-195
The same problem exists for the nvidia-195-modaliases package. Do these packages exist? Is there some other way to get them?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Install Restricted Multimedia Codecs?

Mar 7, 2010

I was using THIS guide to install restricted multimedia codecs. I got to the part where I had to switch system packages to the Packman packages. It came up with a number of dependency errors. I then had a stupid moment and told it to ignore the dependencies and break the applications. Now Xine won't even start, and Amarok seems to have disappeared on my computer. Oh and I also got a bunch of weird dependency problems when I was trying to install some of the packages from Packman too as listed on the guide. I also told it to ignore them when it couldn't find the dependencies. I'm scared I fudged multimedia up so badly I would have to do a clean install to get it back. BTW, I'm running openSUSE 11.2. I don't know if there are other specifications that matter.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Restricted Formats Package?

Feb 6, 2010

I am new to ubuntu and would like to play my music library via a program. Was going to just try rhythmbox since it came with the OS, unless someone has another suggestion. When trying to play my mp3s I get a error saying I need to download a plugin which it can't find. I found this link and tried to follow it. [URL]..I was able to install the package on my laptop, but one my desk top when I click on 'Click here to install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package' I get prompted to use 'apturl' which I accept then it says Could not find package 'ubuntu-restricted-extras'.I am connected to my network, shouldn't it just reach out to and grab this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skipping Through Wma Files Even With Restricted Formats Installed?

Nov 23, 2010

I can play WMAs with MPlayer but when I try to skip forward a few minutes it plays for a split second, and then plays at another random part of the video making it impossible to play a WMA from anywhere but the beginning.

mplayer -demuxer lavf ccent01.wmv.The above command opens the video but there is no menubar, scroll bar, or any reaction to right click although strangely scrolling my mouse wheel seems to randomly skip through the video. In VLC when trying to play the same file I get the error:

No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "wmas". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this. No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "MSS2". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.After converting the .wma file to .mpg, and also .avi using a command similar to:

Code: mencoder ccent01.wmv -ofps 23.976 -ovc lavc -oac copy -o ccent01.mpg. There is no change playing the file with mplayer and in VLC it now only gives one error: Code: No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "wmas". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this. I'm preparing for a Cisco exam later in the week and would like to spend tomorrow watching hours of computer based training videos but would rather not have to do it in Windows. Already tried using Media Player Classic in WINE but it crashed. Is there a workaround? Oh and I already have ubuntu-restricted-extras installed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Movie Player Broken After Install Restricted Extras?

May 2, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 today and all was working well. I tried playing a video and was prompted to install plugins which worked fine. I then installed Open Shot, Lame and Restricted extras and now when I try to open a video (WMV, AVI, FLV etc) all I get is a prompt to search for suitable Plugin. When I click on search another prompt tells me No packages with the requested plugins were found followed by the name of the requested plugin.ie DivX MPEG-4 Version 5 decoder or Windows Media Video 9 decoder etc.Anybody any ideas how to sort this. I already reinstalled 11.04 from scratch as I had the same problem yesterday. I never had an issue like this before and been using Ubuntu for years.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Retrieve Audio CD Information After Installing Restricted-extras?

Sep 5, 2010

I've got Ubuntu 10.4 and have been using Rhythmbox to play CDs. When I put a CD in it would always be recognised and Rhythmbox would display the artist and song titles. Today I installed the following package:ubuntu-restricted-extrasThis was so I could rip CDs to MP3s. This worked, however it seems to have also had the side effect of preventing Rhythmbox from retrieving information about audio CDs. If I run Rhythmbox from a shell I get the following debug:

** (rhythmbox:2271): DEBUG: Loading the real store page
** (rhythmbox:2271): DEBUG: navigation requested to https://one.ubuntu.com/music/store-no-token

Fedora :: Multimedia In Kaffeine - Playing Movies With Restricted Codecs?

I just installed F15 new, and I wonder what packages do I need to install to play movies with restricted codecs?

I have rmpfusion and the packages gstreamer-plugins-bad-free gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly, and all other gstreamer-* packages.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: SLED11 - Restricted Format Message For DVDs

Jun 27, 2009

I have my original test version of sled11 which I installed when it was first released. I managed to install the required files for multimedia formats and everything works fine. The system has updated as updates have been released via the evaluation update code quite happily. I liked it and decided to get a sled11 license and install on my main workstation. About a month has passed since the test install and my fresh licensed install and I accepted all the updates on install. When I install the multimedia apps, only kaffeine will read multimedia dvds. Nautilus, brasero and totem say it is a restricted format and refuse to read it. What to look for?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Multi Media Restricted Format Installation For 11.3

Nov 1, 2010

After having followed the guide in the link below

Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide

I tried to reproduce MP3 files on video like .AVI or MP4 and everything was fine.Every program and library seems that has been installed correctly.

But when I checked , following the instructions in the link, I found different results. I can understand that the guide has been written a long time ago and some packages are not available anymore in the repository, but I think there are too many differences.

This is what I got:


And I got the following list

Another differerence that I have noticed is: when I was listening a MP3 file using Amarok the music was quite clear and loud, but when I reproduce a MP4 or MP3 video file using VLC I could bearily hear something and the volume was at its maximum. How can it be ?

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Audio Stops Working During Playback?

Feb 13, 2011

I have the nvidia sound card built into my motherboard. Just a few hours ago it started to just stop making any noises what so ever. I rebooted but to no avail. I finally was able to find a fix by purging pulse AND alsa, then reinstalling them and rebooting. The problem is this will only allow my sound to work for about 10-15 mins. Kinda hard to watch "'Neath the Arizona Sky" if you gotta reboot every 15 minutes or so...

I have also purge and reinstalled ubuntu-desktop and that will work temporarily and extend me out another 10-15 mins from when it stopped, but then I still have to reboot.

I am using 10.10 Maverick 64 bit and have been using it for a while, this is the first time this or any other problem has occured.

I have been through the forums and checked every thread I could find with a Bingle search that was in any way related to random sound stoppage. I have tried most of them (did not try the ones that were specific to other cards as far as editing the .conf's for those cards)

Debian Multimedia :: VLC Playback Broken By Deb-multimedia Upgrade

Jun 14, 2011

I am using debian squeeze and did an aptitude upgrade yesterday. Today I've found that VLC won't play any video; the files open and the audio plays, but the video is black. The aptitude log is below.

I note that VLC received a security upgrade a few days ago, but my suspicion is that the source of this problem is more likely to be the upgrade of libavcodec52 from version 4: -> 5:0.6.1+svn20101128-0.2. I believe this upgrade came from the debian-multimedia stable repo I have enabled.

Does this sound right, and what could I do to fix my VLC playback? This is new territory for me, and I'm slightly surprised that such an upgrade would come from the stable branch of debian-multimedia (although I know this is not an official source).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Movie Playback On 10.04?

May 31, 2010

Yesterday I fresh installed Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit LTS on my Toshiba Laptop. This is my second time with Ubuntu so bear with me. I got everything working even the webcam but it won't play dvd movies. When I go to the DVD player icon and try to open it...its won't because it doesn't recognize the dvd format.I have searched but only end up trying stuff that didn't work for it. I guess what it needs is Codec's.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Playback With Odd Colors

Jan 30, 2010

I recently upgraded my girlfriend laptop to 9.10 and now, for some odd reason, when she plays DVDs on her laptop (the most recent attempt was the latest Harry Potter movie) the movie would play back fine but the colors for everything were way off. I've re-added the medibuntu software sources to her system and applied all available updates but it didn't help.

This problem did not occur on my own computer when attempting to play the exact same DVD.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Playback Like In Windows 7

Feb 14, 2010

Is there any way to make Ubuntu play sound like Windows 7? I mean when i, for example, listen to music in Windows 7 the sound is much clearer and besides that i can use room correction to obtain a better surround feeling, but when i listen to music in Ubuntu the sound is not very clear and it sounds like stereo even though the sound is played back through all the speakers (the bass is also a little bit to high).

So far i've tried installing the alsa driver and modifying the output levels of each channel, but didn't quite have the same result as the room correction feature in Windows, and the sound wasn't any clearer either. Note: I have an onboard Realtek soundcard and Logitech x530 speakers

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Intermittent VLC Crashes During Playback

Apr 8, 2010

I've been running into issues with VLC crashing now and again, particularly when seeking through the current item using the bar (as opposed to Ctrl-Right Arrow/Left Arrow); it may have happened in a few other spots, but that's usually when I'm not at my keyboard. All files are stored locally on my HD, mostly .avi video. For the most part, when I'm using VLC, I've got Firefox and maybe a Nautilus window running as well. CPU use, Memory use, and System load stay pretty well down (and I've never managed to get my swap usage above 120MiB of the 1.2GiB on the Swap partition).

I've tried removing and reinstalling VLC, no dice; about screen lists Ver 1.0.2 Goldeneye. A side effect of this is that, until I restart the system, the screen is unable to be put to sleep at it's timeout; in the notification bar of the top panel, an icon appears and (if the mouse is left there) a little box will appear with text as follows:
Session active, not inhibited, screen idle.
If you can see this text, your display server is broken and you should notify your distributor.
Please see [URL] for more information.

The URL there listed doesn't have any information that seems to be useful, but, I'd presume that VLC does something to prevent the screen turning off while it's playing (a situation where most folks aren't going to be typing or mousing around), which is undone when VLC ends cleanly (and re-opening, then exiting doesn't fix it).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Mp3 Glitches On First Seconds Of Playback?

Aug 8, 2010

On almost each mp3 file I try to play, VLC will "lag" during the first seconds. There may be some screeching noise. It looks like vlc can't keep up with the bitrate, and it "skips" some bits.

This doesn't happen with totem (the default media player).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVD Playback Failure On New Install 10.04

Aug 9, 2010

I have tried loading/playing (many different) dvds via VLC / new install of 10.04 (on a laptop through which I had been able to play / burn / rip dvds until I "upgraded")...this is what transpires:

Playback failure:
DVDRead could not open the disc "/dev/sr0".
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.
The log reveals:

dvdread error: DVDRead cannot open source: /dev/sr0
main error: no access module matched "dvd"
main error: open of `dvd:///dev/sr0' failed: no access module matched "dvd".
