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 :: Cannot Playback Commercial DVDs On External DVD (Wrong Region/mounting ?

Jan 19, 2011

Having issues getting my external dvd drive to play nice with 10.10. The usual horses have been beaten thoroughly.

1.) I've installed Medibuntu

2.) I've grabbed libdvdcss2, libdvdread, run the install script, etc., etc.

3.) I've attempted to check the region, with no avail.

When I try a regionset, it offers the following complaint:

ERROR: Could not open disc "(null)"! Please ensure there is a readable CD or DVD in the drive.

4.) The drive and disc(s) are all operational, as they work on different partitions and/or machines fine.

VLC/Totem will, briefly, open the menu for a given DVD. The menu video will briefly play, sputter, then die, which sounds like a region issue.

Any idea why the regionset isn't working? Perhaps it's not mounting right?

Fedora :: AVI Playback - Inverted Colors ?

Jul 18, 2009

I rediscovered a concert I converted ~3yrs ago but playback inverts the colour. It plays ok on Windows and virtualdub reports the avi as DivX though I believe I was using xvid & ffdshow at the time. how to invert the inverted colours?

I discovered the extended settings in vlc. I guess it just doesn't show the colour blue. Kind of ironic because of the concert.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Colors Are Off?

Sep 1, 2011

I noticed as I was watching a video that the colors are totally off. I don't have any problems with the Monitor or the display of websites, it's only videos that aren't displayed correctly. Could that be due to the graphic card? I thought about updating the drivers but since I did that when I installed Ubuntu and had the problem from the beginning I wonder what it could be.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Play DVDs - Multimedia RPMs Are Installed

Aug 9, 2011

Normally I find everything I need either in the documentation or forum, but it's been months, and this time I'm stumped. I'm posting the results of my latest tests, so I'm really sorry about the length of this post.

I can't play DVDs unless they've been burned by myself or a friend. I had no problems until around the beginning of April. I was running 11.2 on both my laptop and desktop. I think an update changed something. This was before 11.2 was officially retired a week or so later. I wanted to upgrade to 11.4 anyway, so I began with my laptop. During installation I wiped everything from my hard disk by creating new partitions and formatting them. After installation I installed the multimedia packages using one-click (opensuse-guide.org, not opensuse-community.org, although I did read what they said). I know one-click is not ideal, but I was curious. The result was that I still couldn't play DVDs.

I did a fresh installation, just to be on the safe side. This time I installed the packages according to Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide by caf4926. But I still couldn't play DVDs, so I went through the thread Check your multimedia problem in ten steps. Then I ran mmcheck (v2.35). I tried a few times, experimented, and in the end did another fresh install.

In the meantime, on my desktop, which still has 11.2 on it, I found the file which had been changed and changed it back, so I could play DVDs on it again. It was in /etc/udev/rules.d/, 70-persistent-cd.rules. This does not appear to be the problem in 11.4 on my laptop.

I have again installed the packages according to the multimedia installation guide, and done the ten-step check and run mmcheck and these are the results as they stand:

I couldn't find a package called mplayerplug-in. I used zypper to look for it.

I tried installing the totem packages in a previous installation, but they didn't make a difference, so I left them out this time.

I deinstalled my jdk, but it doesn't seem to have made a difference, except that I get an error notification everytime I want to use LibreOffice. And I need it, so I'm putting it back soon.

So, these are my packages:

And this is what happens when I try to play a DVD using Kaffeine (since I don't an error message except from Kaffeine, and I've forgotten where my logs are):

And then comes Read error from: Error reading from DVD over the GUI.

And nothing else happens... I get no feedback from smplayer whatsoever. It opens, trys to read the DVD, and sits there. Even on the console.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Colors In Sepia Or Negative On Video

Jan 16, 2010

This only happens if I'm watching a video, but it happens in both VLC and movie player. The video's colors will be all messed up. I'm not sure if it's like sepia tone or negative tone but it's consistent. If it matters I'm using an NVidia card with updated drivers.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Less Colors Visible On The Screen After Upgrading?

Nov 14, 2010

I've just upgraded to Kubuntu 10.10 recently, and everything's working well, except that the screen seems to display less colors than it used to. It's very noticeable when looking at smooth gradients, since there are no smooth gradients anymore.

I'm using a laptop with a Radeon HD 5650 video card. The drivers seem to be working well, since I can run a 3D game like Nexuiz without any problems. The lack of colors isn't even very noticeable when playing games, but I can see it clearly in KDE... for example, the window background gradient isn't really a gradient now, just a few different shades of gray next to each other.I've looked around in KDE display settings and ATI settings, but there's absolutely nothing about the number of displayed colors there.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Colors Distorted In Vlc, Totem 10.10 X64?

Dec 15, 2010

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 x64, and the colors in my videos are distorted. Blue seems to be the primary tint over everything. This problem occurs regardless of video format (avi, mkv, flv, etc) and regardless of video player I use (banshee, totem, vlc, etc). However, no other colors in my operating system are distorted; it's only for these movies. I also have an NVidia video card, which I installed the latest driver for through the restricted drivers pop up.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Some Colors In Firefox Coming Out Inverted?

May 29, 2011

After upgrading to Natty/Unitiy I was having problems with very slow and choppy window motion. I tried reinstalling fglrx, and now some of the colors in firefox are coming out inverted (e.g. yellow -> purple) or perhaps just scrambled in some other way (see attached screenshot). There are no other issues I've seen other than some colors in firefox. Most colors look okay.

I downloaded chromium and there are no problems with colors there. I've also upgraded to the latest fglrx drivers from the ATI website and nothing changed. I also uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and still the colors are coming out strangely. Some info. I have an HP Pavilion tx2500ca, with ATI Technologies Inc RS780M/RS780MN [Radeon HD 3200 Graphics].

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Crashing And Displaying Funky Colors?

Jan 1, 2011

For the past month or so I have been having some issues with screen crashing and displaying funky colors. Basically it happens at completely random times, doing completely random things. The screen goes to a pink color then freezes the the only way I can gain control again is if I restart the machine or restart gdm via ssh. This is really puzzling me. Perhaps there are some logs I can look at? A little bit about my system:


Processor2x Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz

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 :: Back Up One Of Dvds To Hdd?

I'm trying to back up one of my dvds to my hdd. My usual method is to copy the video_ts folder onto my hdd and convert it from there. I popped this dvd into my computer and nautilus is saying that there is 71.8gb of data on this disk. If I run df -h, here's what I see:


There are actually 65 of these 1gb files. why this is happening or how to get this backed up?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Not Playing / But Only Sometimes

Apr 14, 2010

My newly installed (but not new) DVD drive seems to play some movies some days, but others all the time. I'm pretty sure it's just a little picky about scratches. I can hear it in the drive; when I insert the disk, I can tell when it isn't spinning. When it does start spinning, that's when the Media options window pops up asking me what I want to do with the disk.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Rip Clips From DVDs

May 30, 2010

I've got a project which requires me to go through a bunch of dvds and take little clips out of them. I do not want to have to rip the entire dvd and then transcode it and then take the clip out of the one I've saved on my drive as I have lots and lots of dvds to get though I've tried loads of things and none of them seem to be able to do this, dvdrip, cinelarra, kedenlive, live, kino and others that I can't remember the names of.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Play DVDs / What's Going On?

Aug 24, 2010

When I put a DVD in either of my two drives, the movie will not play using either VLC or Movie Player.

When I go to 'Open Disc' in VLC, next to 'Disc Device' it lists a string of two very odd characters, ��, as the only option. The drop-down arrow doesn't work. When I click on 'Browse' and navigate to the name of the movie (which I assume is the drive) in the 'Places' menu, nothing happens.

In Movie Player, when I go to Movie > Play Disc "(Insert Movie Name Here)", I get the following error message: "Could not read from resource"

The same thing happens with either drive, with either of two DVDs.

DVDs seem to play fine in Windows XP using VLC.

What's going on here?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Still Won't Play

Jun 8, 2011

I've installed libdvdcss2 (using these instructions), but still can't play encrypted DVDs. It appears to be an encryption thing, because I can play backed-up/decrypted DVDs. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, 64 bit. Another user here got it working by installing Ubuntu from scratch, then going straight to install medibuntu and libdvdcss, but that's not a realistic option for me at this point.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Weirdest Sound - Static Buzz, But Only If Mainly Light Screen Colors?

Jan 28, 2011

There's this low monotone electronic buzz coming out of my speakers. But only if the greater part of my screen is using lighter colors! Meaning, if for instance I have the terminal (black) full-screen there is no buzz. If I have it sized over the half of my screen there's a medium buzz. And if I am on the Google Search home page with the browser full screen (most of the screen white) there's a loud buzz. :SAnd it's only if I run the sound through my amplifier. It's not audible if I just use the laptopspeakers. Really, I have no idea even in what direction to start looking.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Will Not Play With Any Application

Jan 22, 2010

DVDs will not play with any app., however, all play fine in Linux Mint (dual booting here) with a straight install.

VLC gives me the following error message:
Playback failure:
VLC cannot set the DVD's title. It possibly cannot decrypt the entire disc.
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.
Playback failure:
VLC cannot set the DVD's title. It possibly cannot decrypt the entire disc.
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.

Again, I'm not trying to rip or decrypt anything, just play. All DVD & players give me the same results in Ubuntu, but all play fine in Linux Mint.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Play The Encrypted DVDs

May 7, 2010

I'm running UNR 10.04 (fresh install) on a new Acer Aspire1 250 and just cannot get encrypted DVDs to play at all (as far as I can tell), using any media-player software.I'm having the most luck so far with xine (it is at least properly playing a DVD that I think must not be encrypted), so I'd like to start with trying to get xine working.


Running xine-ui 0.99.5+cvs20070914-2.1
I have installed ubuntu-restricted-extras, libdvdnav4, libdvdread4, libdvdcss2, gstreamer-plugins-bad, gstreamer-plugins-ugly.

I'm using a LaCie external DVD to (try to) play these. After inserting the DVD, I start up xine, which will play usually a brief introduction to the DVD (like the FBI warning, studio logo, maybe start up the menu) and then crash, giving the error message:


The source can't be read.
Maybe you don't have enough rights for this, or source
doesn't contain data (e.g.: not disc in drive).

The last line of course varies with the DVD, and there are many of these messages (one per track, I think). Like I suspect, does this mean that xine doesn't realize that libdvdcss2 is there (or some codec)? If so, how do I tell it where to look?
