Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound In Openshot / WinFF - Unsupported Codec

May 21, 2010

I have a video - taken on my mobile phone. In totem, I get sound and video: lovely. However, in Openshot I don't get sounds, and in WinFF it tells me "Unsupported codec (id=7372" for the audio stream. Why, when both are using FFMpeg do the installed codecs work differently in different programs?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: OpenShot - LibMP3Lame Codec Missing From System?

Jan 18, 2011

I've been using OpenShot before with no problems at all, I then formatted and Dual booted Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 and now I have a little problem. I've downloaded and installed OpenShot 1.2 via Software Center and installed LAME Mp3 codec via Terminal

sudo apt-get install lame
Everytime I try to export a video I've created in OpenShot I get this message.
"The following formats/codecs are missing from your system:
libmp3lame. You will not be able to use the selected export profile. You will need to install the missing formats/codecs or choose a different export profile."

I checked the codec in OpenShot and it's missing, I opened Synaptic to search "lame" and sure enough, it's installed version 3.98 so I tried reinstalling lame mp3 via Synaptic and still no audio codec is there in OpenShot when I click Refresh Codec. I have now tried reinstalling OpenShot with the codec already installed and still nothing, as well as uninstalling both, restarting the computer.

And then installing codec then OpenShot and vice versa for installation and STILL nothing is happening. I googled OpenShot LAME Mp3 codec problems and I can't find a single thing. OpenShot was working flawless before I dual booted and now it wont work at all, every single video format I can use, it's telling me I need the codec for it, which I have but OpenShot tells me I don't.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: FFmpeg Unsupported Codec For Output Stream

Feb 26, 2010

So I've been trying to convert .avi files to .mov using FFmpeg. I input something like this:
ffmpeg -i in.avi -b 1000 out.mov

And it says:
Unsupported codec for output stream #0.1
So I tried adding -acodec mp3 OR -acodec libmp3lame and it says unknown codec.

I went to install libmp3lame-dev using
sudo apt-get install libmp3lame-dev

And it comes up with this:
The following NEW packages will be installed:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
libdc1394-22{u} libfaac0{u} libxvidcore4{u} linux-headers-2.6.28-11{u}
I'm fairly sure I don't want those packages removed? Should mention I'm on Ubuntu 9.04 64-Bit.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: FFmpeg "Unsupported Codec For Stream #0.3"?

Jun 30, 2010

I've been trying to re-mux some mkv files into mp4 files recently and ran into this issue. The mkv files contain an h.264 video stream, two aac audio streams (english and japanese) and one subtitle stream. All I'm trying to do is move all four streams into a mp4 container using the following command:

ffmpeg -i input.mkv -vcodec copy -acodec copy -acodec copy -scodec copy output.m4v -newaudio
Input #0, matroska, from 'input.mkv':
Duration: 00:24:42.64, start: 0.000000, bitrate: N/A
Stream #0.0: Video: h264, yuv420p, 640x480, PAR 1:1 DAR 4:3, 23.98 tbr, 1k tbn, 47.95 tbc
Stream #0.1(jpn): Audio: aac, 11025 Hz, stereo, s16


Since the first audio stream doesn't seem to be throwing an error I'm a little confused as to why the second (with the same codec) would give this error. I would appreciate any help with this problem, or alternative solutions to accomplishing the mux.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: OpenShot - No Sound From Audio Track?

Jun 8, 2010

I have recorded some video, and now wanted to add some sound.I added a sound track, but when it's playing, I can't hear anything.I'm usually running Jack - for Ardour/Hydrogen etc... - I can't find anywhere in OpenShot to change the Audio to Jack, so assume it's not supported.I have killed Jack in the hope that Alsa will work with OpenShot, but still I have no sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Windows Media 9 Codec: No Sound In Mplayer / Totem / Vlc

May 15, 2010

how I fixed my sound problems, that happened only for "windows media 9" videos, after struggling for days changing the players etc. (using Ubuntu lucid 10.04 up to date)First search for "Ubuntu install w32codecs" (or w64codecs depending on your system bus width) and... install them as root or 'sudo'


$ sudo apt-get install w32codecs (or w64codecs)

After updating totem to the very latest version (May 12, 3 days ago) the problem happened to be likely from the source: gstreamer. So I tried to install the latest version of gstreamer, and it worked (the default one packaged in Ubuntu is dated 2008...).


install latest developer version

Ubuntu Multimedia :: WinFF OGV To AVI Conversion In 10.04?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Winff Crashes After Terminal?

Mar 8, 2010

I am trying to convert movies to mpeg4 or more specifically formatted to play on my blackberry curve. I followed installation guide from this tutorial [URL]. Everything installed and the program works but when I add a file and pick presets and hit convert the terminal pops up and says the following:


So I press Enter and the terminal closes, than... nothing happens just staring at the winff screen.

I really have no idea where to go with this. I found a link from the forums earlier on these common crashes but cant seem to find it again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Use WinFF To Convert MPEG To IPod/H.264

Nov 9, 2010

I am running 10.10 64-bit and am trying to get an option in WinFF to convert an MPEG file to an iPod compatible video. All of the HOT_TO guides I could find involve installing the FFmpeg libraries, which I have done as well as I could have.The problem is that within WinFF, I don't see anything different in the "Convert To ..." drop-down. The Wiki I am reading tells me to select iPod, but this isn't available.What do I need to do to get this to be selectable?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Terra HD And Either Avidemux Or OpenShot

Jul 26, 2011

I eventually did buy a Terra HD from Zareason that I love, but I cannot get it to do my video editing of Flip Mino home videos. I know the machine is capable. It plays bigger AVI files without any problem. For sound it uses the Realtek chipset. Samples of the .avi Flip Mino videos are here. A nice short one for experimenting with is 2.3 MB, here. According to Avidemux, the Flip Mino videos have the following video properties...

Codec 4CC: XVID
Image Size: 640 x 480
Aspect Ratio: 1:1 (1:1)
Frame Rate: 30.000 fps
and the following audio properties...

Channels: Mono
Bitrate: 22179 Bps / 177 kbps
Variable Bitrate: No
Frequency: 44100 Hz

My goal is simply to trim the beginning and end to get the best segment in each home movie. Avidemux worked great on my old machine as long as I changed the output audio format to MP3(LAME). But Avidemux is not working and wants to know all sorts of things about devices of which I am ignorant. The default settings must be wrong since the audio playback is choppy and usually the video saves to a one-frame broken file.

I also tried Openshot and it has no device preference issues. However, I am ignorant of how to make it save the videos properly. It wants to "export" the video using all sorts of options, none of which are simply "use the setting for the only track". Based on the 640x480 size I tried some Square NTSC tests but the exported file was always much too big -- usually larger than the untrimmed original!

Also, Openshot appears to lack a keyboard shortcut or button for "move the beginning or end of the clip back or forwards one frame". Is it really expecting me to use the mouse to position the clip's borders precisely? I have no vested interest in which software is used. Nor do I care about the resulting file format as long as it is neither wastefully large nor senselessly abandoning quality. I just want to share my home movies with friends and family.

I had the same error with earlier versions of WinFF in earlier versions of OpenSUSE. Then I could fix it by changing the KDE window styles. The error also occurs with the WinFF qt-version.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Using OpenShot To Render For Windows Playback?

Mar 20, 2010

Although I am an obsessed Ubuntu user, I am also a realist. When I have to give a presentation, I often have to use someone else's computer, and that system invariably runs windows. So when presenting via Powerpoint with embedded video on a default windows install, I need to be certain that the video format will play correctly. It is hard to convince windows users that Ubuntu is better if your videos/slides/documents etc don't play nice with their setups.

I have used kdenlive before (on OpenSuse) and it has a wmv export profile which works, but I was really hoping to sort this out using Ubuntu.

export settings or profiles in OpenShot that will definitely work for me??

I know that Openoffice Impress on Ubuntu plays every format I've ever tried flawlessly -- but when you give a talk somewhere you are often using someone else's computer and it is usually windows

Ubuntu Multimedia :: OpenShot Editor Does Not Support OGV Files

Aug 9, 2010

I've been using gtk record my desktop, which does a very good job and records nicely as a .ogv. The problem is, the Openshot editor doesn't appear to support .ogv files, which means I have to find some way of converting the .ovg to something Openshot can use. Having used both Pitivi and Arista to re-encode the file, I find the picture quality suffers some substantial loss by becoming noisy.

So, can anyone suggest:
1. A way to get Openshot to recognise .ogv files natively? or,
2. Suggest another screencast program that records to a high quality file that Openshot understands? or,
3. Suggest a video editing program that can open and work with .ogv files, allowing the addition of music and titles (text), and then save to a high quality file like mp4?
