Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music Sounds Quality Is Bad

Dec 9, 2010

I'm still new to Ubuntu and I'm trying to get the sound working. I have a Satellite X205-SLi1 and just installed Lucid. Everything is okay, except for the sound. My laptop has 5.1 harman/kardon speakers and I think just some of them are being used and the quality is bad. I'm not sure what to do...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Background Music And Sounds Louder Than Voices

Feb 17, 2010

I am running Ubuntu remix on my Asus Aspire Netbook. When watching movies on Video player and VLC I get good loud sound on music in the movie but I can barely hear anything when people talk ... background music and sounds are way louder than voices. I know these files work because I watched them before when I still had Windows XP on my netbook.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Music/sounds Through Phone Speakers Using Bluetooth?

Jun 19, 2011

I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this, so feel free to move it around (mods) I have a Nokia 2700, the full specs of which are available here - [URL].. And it looks somewhat like this >

So the idea here is, I have connected it up in every possible way to my laptop through bluetooth. I have found a way to stream music playing on the phone through my laptop speakers. What I want to be able to do is to be able to stream music playing on my laptop (all sounds through the soundcard) via bluetooth (perhaps?) from my mobile phone speakers..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Anything - Music - Flash - Videos - Games - 'muffled' - Poor Sound Quality

Apr 7, 2010

I just got my hands on an MSI E7235-295US and slapped Ubuntu 9.10 on it. So far everything's worked great, but I am beginning to get a bit concerned about my sound quality. The laptop itself has 5 speakers + subwoofer so I should be getting 5.1 sound, if I understand things correctly (the newegg link should provide more details) and when I play anything (music, flash, videos, games, etc...) the sound comes out 'muffled'. Almost as if it is in a concert hall, maybe. I initially wondered if the problem is related to the 5 speakers and if the sound is initially only setup for two. If that is the case, nothing I've done has seemed to made any real difference. I've tried changing the master/pci channels, but it only hides it a little, and doesn't solve the problem.

This seemed to be on the right track, but the laptop is still really new and not listed in the alsa file.

Some info:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 7220
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get The Sound To Work - No Web Sounds - No CD Sounds

Sep 1, 2011

I have a HP laptop model HP G72 Notebook PC, Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 350 @2.27GHz & the Sound devices are Intel(R) Display Audio & Realtek High Definition Audio.

This machine came loaded with Windows7 & I have successfully dual booted it with Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.3.

The problem I am having is that I cannot get the sound to work at all in Ubuntu. No opening sounds or anything else that I have tried. No Web sounds, no CD sounds... All sounds work fine on the Windows side, but nothing I have tried so far seem to work with Ubuntu & I have tried many options from many threads.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Dim The Screen In Order To Save Power - Listen To Music Or Any Other Sounds Through Headphones Or Speakers

Jun 25, 2010

Ok so I am a total newbie at Ubuntu Linux and I'm having problems I don't know how to solve.

1.) Up until yesterday this wasn't a problem, but after a power outage while I was connected I am now unable to connect to the internet anymore as it says "Networking is disabled", how do i enable the "networking"?

2.) Another problem I am having is that I am not able to dim the screen in order to save power among other uses, I've looked around but haven't been able to find a solution, I am running ubuntu on a Gateway M-Series Laptop.

3.) Finally, since installing linux I have been unable to listen to music or any other sounds through headphones or speakers, when i connect something into the audio output, the outer speakers do shut off but no sound is emitted through the speakers/headphones, and yes i have tried multiple ones to make sure it wasn't the headphones or speakers.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Every Music Player Wants To Stream Music?

Apr 19, 2010

I've had an awkward problem lately: every music player I use wants to instead of play music from my USB external hard drive, stream music from it. I have no idea why it suddenly started doing that. It may have been an accidental key-combo I pressed, thinking I had another window targeted and didn't bother pressing it again for my Totem music player. So I closed out of Totem in hopes that Rythmbox would work like totem used to. Well, it doesn't. It wants to stream music now.The problem with the streaming music is trivial, but here it is: I have a playlist with a little over 300 songs. I have Totem set to shuffle and repeat my music. Streaming music with it makes it just stop randomly after a few songs, and when I try to pause music and play it later it takes a good 30 seconds before it kicks back in at the beginning of the song.Like I always ask because I don't know enough to give back to the community yet, can anyone help me? Thanks.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: None Of Notification Sounds Work / Skype, Firefox, And Wine Still Give Sounds?

Feb 24, 2010

I've been using opensuse for about a week.(although I'm not completely a linux noob) I've been slowly moving more of the stuff I do on windows over to suse. I thought my sound was working fine until I decided to get mp3s running on amarok. I followed a bunch of guides which didn't work. While I was messing around with stuff I noticed a startup noise. I just assumed it didn't have a startup noise. At some point I broke all of my sound except running wine, so I reinstalled.

Now that I've noticed, none of my notification sounds work. Stuff like skype, firefox, and wine still give me sounds.

(If anyone could point me in the direction of a good place to get mp3s working on amarok would be nice as well.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get The Best Performance/quality On 10.04 Box

Jul 24, 2010

I'm trying to get the best performance/quality on my my 10.04 box and i have a few questions regarding 'sync to vblank'. My first question : I see 'sync to vblank' in 3 different locations.

- In compiz display settings
- In NVidia XVideo settings
- In NVidia OpenGLX settings
What is the difference between the 3 ?

Second question : I used to have problems watching movies where the picture seemed to be cut in half ( i'm not a native english speaker so i don't know the technical term). After reading some forums, i enabled sync to vblank everywhere i saw it. That solved the movie problem. But maybe that was overkill ?

So i did some benchmarking and noticed the following :

When i disable 'sync to vblank' in compiz my compiz benchmark drops from 60 to 30. But then my movies look worse.When i disable 'sync to vblank' in NVidia OpenGlx my GlxGears framerate jumps from 300 to 36000.I didn't notice anything when changing vsync in the NVidia XVideo setting. System specs below.

Ubuntu 10.04 64b
Nvidia GT 230 1536MB
NVIDIA Driver Version : 195.36.24

Sep 20, 2010

I am runnin Ubuntu 9.10- the Karmic Koala on acer aspire laptop. since everythin in this netbook is crap. so I hardly can see movies that so much going on in them( when so much happens, the screen freezer for a while therefore i miss the most interesting bits) I used kinda every players. the only one that works for me is mplayer since it does not require high spec it works good but it has its own costs. if I use mplayer then i have the porblem of the sound (eg i can hear stuff before it happening) I am now just wondering if there is a way to decrease the quality. I really dont care if i have great quality or not as long as i can c whats happening ( at least for this netbook anyway)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Splitting Videos And Maintaining Quality?

Feb 24, 2010

I am trying to use ffmpeg to split a number of videos of different types (WMV, MPG, AVI). I do not want to change anything else, just split them into smaller chunks. The video is split, but the quality of the output file is terrible. I would describe it as "blocky" (I think the correct term is "pixelated"). When I make the player (KMPlayer) much smaller the problem naturally goes away.

The command I am using:

ffmpeg -i original_vid.wmv -ss 00:00:00 -t 00:05:00 first_vid.wmv

The output:

FFmpeg version SVN-r19352-4:0.5+svn20090706-2ubuntu2, Copyright (c) 2000-2009 Fabrice Bellard, et al.
configuration: --extra-version=4:0.5+svn20090706-2ubuntu2 --prefix=/usr --enable-avfilter --enable-avfilter-lavf --enable-vdpau --enable-bzlib --enable-libgsm --enable-libschroedinger --enable-libspeex --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis


"Seems stream 0 codec frame rate differs from container frame rate: 1000.00 (1000/1) -> 25.00 (25/1)

Seems to mean something, but I couldn't find anything saying that this is the problem or what O should do to correct it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How Can I Half Video's Quality And Size

Aug 8, 2010

I have a 500MB video that is 720x400. I want to half the size of the video while retaining the same relative quality.My main goal is to half the filesize of the video, but to do that and keep the same relative quality I will have to also make the resolution smaller.I can't seem to find a way to do this.I would preferer to use ffmpeg, but any solution would be good at this point. I would really like to be able to do this from the command line, but if there is a gui program that will also give me the command line it uses, that's great too.Does any one know of a way to half the file size of a video while maintaining the same relative quality?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Looking For High Quality Compatible MP3 Player

I am looking for a good mp3 player. I obviously dislike apple n windows so I wont buy an iPod or Zune player. Now I am wondering if any of you had good experience with any other mp3 player on Ubuntu. The two things I want are firstly a product of high quality n functionality like those two mentioned above AND secondly a seamless ubuntu compatibility. I'd love to see synchronization and stuff working out of the box. Anyone out there found a outstanding product and like to give a recommendation?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Degradation Of Audio Quality By Reencoding

If I were to take a flac music file and convert it to alac using ffmpeg would there be any degradation of audio quality? I am also wondering how many people are actually able to tell the difference between a high quality MP3 and a lossless file. If I were to find a suitable place to upload a load of different files would people be willing to judge the audio quality?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Increase Video Reproduction Quality

May 11, 2011

When I watch movies on Ubuntu I noticed that quality of reproduction is not good as in Windows. All movies seems to have some sort of contrast problem which I don't know how to fix. This problem is not present in Windows (XP/7) and stand-alone DVD players play them also correctly.

Here are images (AVI, DivX format)

Windows version: http://i52.tinypic.com/125hlis.png
Linux version: http://i56.tinypic.com/tz53t.png

Also here is MKV format which is noticeably even sharper in Windows:

Windows version: http://i53.tinypic.com/2lmqxqe.png
Linux version: http://i53.tinypic.com/15gfmlt.png

Note: I didn't wanted to include them in post since they are quite big and I didn't want to do JPG compress since they might lose quality. Try not to resize them.

On Ubuntu I installed some 'extra' codecs (might be proprietary) via Software center. I use standard movie player that comes with 10.10, but for MKV I use VLC since mkv don't run in standard movie player. On Windows I use k-lite codec pack and GOM player. My guess is that Windows solve those sharpness and contrast issues by using some playback filters (possibly contained in k-lite codec pack) that are unavailable in Ubuntu. I installed proprietary video driver for ATI RADEON 2600.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee - How To Control Quality Of Conversion

I don't really want my FLAC to go down to like 192kbps. Are there any settings that I am missing or any files that could be edited to make this happen?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Playing Two Sounds At Once?

Jan 7, 2010

So I don't use gnome, KDE, or XFCE, but I'm running Xubuntu. I'm constantly playing music via nvlc. While that music's still playing, I'd like to be able to hear a sound I run from the command line via

cvlc beep.mp3

I've tried on and off over the years messing with pulse, esd, etc. output options for vlc, but never figured out exactly how to do this. In Windows, having a batchfile play a .wav at the same time as an mp3 player is playing music "just works" I know there must be a "just works" solution for Linux.
