Ubuntu Multimedia :: Way To Install Windows Media Player 12 Through Wine ?

Oct 21, 2010

I am really fedup from playing .mpg (1080i) videos on linux. I tried to use smplayer or vlc but the video plays so poor, I got like scales (lines) on the video like on the screenshot embedded below (the screenshot I found on the net).

When I play the same video on windows 7 its so great with windows media player 12, when I play it with smplayer or vlc on windows 7 I got the same performance like in linux, its like windows media player has its own mpg hardware accelerator!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Media Player For Windows ?

Aug 22, 2010

Unfortunately, being the fact that I'm a gamer; I need to dual boot with Windows 7. I'm after a nice music player with a similar GUI to Banshee or Rhythmbox in their minimalism. Something as Gnome looking as possible and very lightweight on recources.

Debian Multimedia :: Windows Media Player Plug-in / Codec For Rhythmbox / Iceweasel

Dec 7, 2015

[URL]So, I want to hear the state-owned Portuguese radio that plays Classical Music, called "Antena 2", by either (1) clicking its website's listening "popup" window - [URL]- or by (2) adding such radio to my Rhythmbox list.

And, I would like to hear such a radio without having to install the proprietary "Flash" plug-in... And, if I'm forced to install any proprietary plug-in, I would rather install some "gstreamer" package(?) instead. But, preferably, what I would like, would be to use a Free Software alternative, if possible.

But, in the meantime, this is what happens...

1. If I click the above-mentioned link, to the corresponding "popup" window ([URL]), I can't hear anything.

2. If I click on a link at the bottom of that same "popup" window, that says "Listen to the broadcast in Windows Media Player" - [URL] - I'm sent to an identical listening "popup" window/page, where I still can't hear anything - and whose difference is that, now, the link at the bottom of the page says "Listen to the broadcast in Flash" [URL]

That is, this radio's website presents me two alternatives. That are, to listen to it

(1) using the "Flash" technology ([URL]), or

(2) using some "Windows Media Player" technology/codec/format ([URL])

The first of which I would very much like to not have to install, and the second of which I suspect there might be some plug-in package for, that I can install, that will make it possible for me to hear this radio.

And, the reason I suspect the latter, is because, if I try to add the link to the "Windows Media Player" page ([URL]) to my Rhythmbox's list of radios, I get the error message: "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in."

So, which package(s) do I have to install, to be able to listen to this radio on the web - or, even better, through my Rhythmbox list of radios?

For Firefox on Windows install the Microsoft Media Player Plugin. If it's already installed it may be disabled.

To check, go to Tools menu, choose Add-ons and then Plugins tab. There look for Microsoft Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin and reenable it."

Ubuntu :: Windows Media Player Plug-in For 10.10 - Get Sound - No Video

Mar 3, 2011

Recently I decided to leave Windows and go with Linux. To try out I downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and I can't be happier. I'm still getting used to how things work around here. Anyway I have an account at a website where I watch free TV, thing is the website uses Windows Media Player to stream the TV channels. I downloaded a bunch of plug-ins like VLC player, MPlayer and some other but all I get is the sound from the channels, no video other than some stupid graphics like when you play a song in Windows Media Player. So I wanted to ask you guys if you can help a brother out and please be as detailed as possible as to what to do because I'm still getting used to working in this environment.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: What Media Player To Use - How Should Set That Up

Apr 19, 2011

Since I can't get LinuxMCE diskless mds to work I am going to try and use another approach. What I want to do is be able to store media (pics, audio, ripped dvds) on a central server and access the across the network with a media player in Ubuntu or Kubuntu that I can connect to the TV and entertainment system.

What media player to use and how I should set that up? I might use windows server for the shares just because I am used to it unless theres a better way. I have a pretty beefy server just waiting for media files.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Media Player Crash?

May 14, 2010

I have just upgraded my ubuntu dist from 9.10 to 10.04 via the Update Manager inside gnome. I spend a lot of my spare time lying in bed watching (legal) movies using VLC Media Player. I have never before the dist upgrade had any issues with this although since the upgrade I have found the VIDEO in the movie crashes usually around halfway through the movie although the audio remains fine and continues through to the end of the movie.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming To Media Player - VLC

Jun 4, 2010

I am trying to stream a live dvb feed to windows media player on a number of desktops. I have VLC and all the codecs etc installed.

I am starting my stream with the following command:


After vlc loads, I get the following error:


It seems your FFMPEG (libavcodec) installation lacks the following encoder: MPEG Audio layer 1/2/3.

If you don't know how to fix this, ask for support from your distribution.

This is not an error inside VLC media player. Do not contact the VideoLAN project about this issue. After some searching around, I found a guide on setting up ffmpeg at [url] which I have followed. I am still getting the error.

Do I need to add any other codecs to make this work?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Media Player .ts File And Error?

Jan 1, 2010

Okay running on 64bit karmic 9.10 i have been trying to get this .ts file to play nicely on vlc, but no success of getting it work nicely what so ever. It actually starts under VLC and gives image and sound but not the way i would prefer it. I don't quite get it but when i start it with vlc it actually displays it with lower resolution this is HD file, as its a stream capture from tv but it outputs it with much smaller resolution about 320 x 180. Tried it with other players too but the only one that accepted it nicely was xine "but problems ahead again" it outputs no sound? the image though was and is what it should be.

Tried it with Totem too and it did accept it too actually "hurray! but with the same symptoms as VLC + it doesn't output any sound out from the file only the image is what gets generated out from the player. I ran VLC from the terminal and it outputs following data when i start to play the file:


so if any ONE knows what should i do, feel free to step up and advise me would be appreciated (thanks in advance) If this has value if's mpeg2 ts file. And no...the file ain't corrupted that much i know, but what could generate this problem. If it ain't broken? Seeking works nice etc... except the low resolution display.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Media Player Now Plays DVD But No Video?

Mar 7, 2010

I was setting up my Totem Movie Player on Ubuntu 9.10 and at first it wouldn't play dvds at all. So, I went online and entered these two commands into the terminal to play restricted dvds.

sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

DVDs will now play on Totem, but now I don't have any video. I can hear sound and if click around the screen I can get it to play but I still don't have any video. I also tried both dvd drives on my computer and tried different DVDs. Still same thing.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Embed Media Player In Webpage?

Apr 29, 2010

I have a file server running Ubuntu Server. No monitor or input hooked up...I just ssh into it for maintanance. I use it to store all of my music and video files. I was watching Hulu at work today and thought it would be nice if I could somehow stream or play my files from my file server while I was at work.

I have apache set up so I can serve websites from it so I was thinking if I could some how select the file to play and it play it in an embedded player, that would be fine. I'd like it to play music and videos.

Is there any way of going about this? I have minimal HTML experience, but I have extensive C/C++ experience and server experience. So I'm comfortable using some open source libraries to accomplish this.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Finding Certain Feature In A Media Player?

Aug 24, 2010

I'm using the default Totem movie player to play all my mp3s. However, because I listen to a lot of podcasts(some over an hour in length), I'm looking for some kind of media player that makes it easy to navigate through long audio files. For example Winamp has global hotkeys that allow you to jump forward or backward by 30 seconds (something like that).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play .AVIs On Any Media Player

Sep 18, 2010

I am running Ubuntu latest revision, but for the last 2 revs I have had the same problem. I have tried removing and uninstalling all media players, codecs and everything with no luck yet. When I play an AVI it brings up a window saying I need the divx or mpeg-4 codec. Click here to download. When I click it, it tells me it can't find the required drivers. The audio plays but no video. I have installed the codecs from what I can tell. I have seen errors for DivX MPEG-4 Version 5, X-VID MPEG-4, and H.264.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Streaming Media - M Player Classic FM

Dec 27, 2010

Just spent the last 4 or so hours trying to get my Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook edition system to play streaming audio from this link: [url]

I have managed to download the relevant M Player, but when I click on the streaming audio link it pulls up the player, then nothing happens. It says "stopped" and when I click on the play icon nothing happens.

When I cut and paste the relevant link into M Player directly it looks as it it will work, it seems to buffer for about a second, then nothing happens again.

I have installed "Ubuntu Restricted Extras" and the "Medibuntu" repo is enabled. If this remains a codec issue (which it feels like) how do I find what codec I'm missing?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Media Player Won't Play AVI Files?

Apr 13, 2011

VLC Media player has been giving me a few problems and I'm hoping someone here has a fix for this issue.Yesterday I was playing an avi file and my browser, that was also running, froze up in the background. At the same time my video became choppy and started to freeze. I shut down firefox and vlc but when I opened it back up all of my avi files where greyed out. I've posted a request for help on the vlc forums but no one has responded. Has anyone else experienced this problem? It's frustrating because my vlc player will still play dvd's but it won't play any avi files. Oh and I tried the drag and drop option per a suggestion but all I get is sound with no video. Lastly, I should mention that I'm a multi tasker and was also trouble shooting a problem I was having with amarok, which I've since uninstalled. Could amarok have some how screwed up my files? I've even uninstalled an reinstalled vlc but nothing works
