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).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: VLC - During Video-playback The Screenbrightness Is Turned To Zero After Approx- 30 Seconds

Dec 1, 2009

I've got a problem with my VLC MediaPlayer (v1.0.3-GoldenEye). During video-playback, my screenbrightness is turned to zero after approx- 30 seconds of playback. After turning the screen brightness to high again, the same thing starts over again. By now, I encountered that changing screen resolutions (e.g. after closing a fullscreen application with a different resolution) also turns my brightness to 0.

Software :: Video Playback Often Pause For 10 Seconds

Dec 16, 2010

While playing videos on Linux (both Mint and Fedora) I noticed that the video will often pause for about 10 seconds or so while the audio keeps playing. After the 10 second freeze the video resumes where it should be. I've had this problem both on Mint 9 and Fedora 13 and 14.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Audio Glitches In 10.10 - When Play My Mp3s?

Apr 26, 2011

For some reason, I seem to be getting audio glitches or hick ups when I play my mp3s on Ubuntu 10.10. Everything else works fine. Would this be a hardware or software issue?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Dropouts/glitches When Video Is Busy

Dec 16, 2010

I am experiencing problems with sound in Maverick on my Dell Inspiron i6400. When the video gets busy while playing sound, the sound gets highly degraded (dropouts, glitches, clicks and cracklings). For example, it happens when an advert animation is playing on a webpage, or when scrolling a document/a webpage. It especially happens when scrolling a document in evince. This is a frustrating issue since I basically cannot work while playing music! My sound chipset is a Intel HDA ICH7.

An important point is that it only happens when I use a "large" screen resolution (eg 1920x1080), and not when the resolution equals or is below 1280x800. Therefore I think this is related to the video side. The two CPU's cores (Intel T2050@1.60GHz) never reach 100% load when the problem arises. The memory is not full either. I use Compiz and various desktop effects, but the problem still remains without it. My video card is an ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 with 256 Mb of RAM (using the default free driver shipped with Ubuntu). Also, the video is fluid and flawless so I do not understand where the problem comes from. This might be related to a priority/ordering issue, I do not know.

The most relevant bug report I found is the following one:

Debian Multimedia :: KDE With 3d Driver - Glitches On Window Decorations When Pass The Mouse Cursor From Windows Topbars

Aug 21, 2011

I installed today debian wheezy from OpenSUSE system via bootstrap. I have some strange behaviour with kde. At first kde worked fine and the only problem was that if I tried to logout from kde session, instead of kdm shows up, a black screen appear with mouse cursor working. I first ignore this error(because I had some problems with audio) and just reboot from vt console or sometimes restart kdm service. After I solved the audio problem I've searched to find some solution about kdm black screen problem. I found on kde forums a solution about terminate xserver option on kdmrc file, which didn't work in my case, but create another problem.

The problem is that now when I pass the mouse cursor from windows topbars I have glitches on window decorations. So I disable the above option again, reboot but the graphics problems was still there. I tried to uncheck vsync from desktom effects and the resault was all desktop effects to be disabled. Now I cannot re-enable desktop effects any more. But now I can logout and relogin. 3D works fine(glxgears works) but I cannot enable desktop effects. And I think that some effects work, because I see some smooth movements and fade outs when I pass the mouse cursor on kmenu items. My card is ATI radeon HD 4650, and I have the xorg-video-ati driver installed.

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 :: Display Would Sometimes Go Black For A Few Seconds

Oct 7, 2010

I installed Ubuntu on a Toshiba Satellite about a month ago. It worked for about three hours. I installed Wine, and it still worked but the display would sometimes go black for a few seconds. Later that day I rebooted and that was it, no more Ubuntu. It goes through all of the process of booting but then the screen just goes black before I even get to the purple Ubuntu screen. I'm running this on a drive in an enclosure so I simply plugged the drive into another machine ( actually two other machines ), and it works perfectly. I have an old Vista drive that I put in the Toshiba and that works just fine, so it's not a pure hardware issue. Just to be sure I wiped the Ubuntu drive and re-installed, this time without installing wine. No Toshiba love. Just the black screen. I even made a flash drive with the loader and iso from the Ubuntu site. Same deal. It starts to boot from the flash and then just goes black where you would normally expect the purple Ubuntu screen. This thing is driving me nuts and I am at a point where I really need this machine working and will be faced with simply wiping the Ubuntu drive and installing Windows.

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 :: DVD Playback Failure On New Install 10.04

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.
The log reveals:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: CD / DVD Creator - No Proper Playback

Aug 11, 2010

I have a DVD that I am trying to burn to a disc. What I have is a VIDEO_TS folder. First I burned just that to the disc and it plays fine in my standard DVD player, but when I try to play it back using Ubuntu's Movie Player, it acts like it is going to play for a split second and then goes into stop mode. So, I tried burning the disc again, but this time I added and empty AUDIO_TS folder to it. Still plays fine on the DVD player, but in Movie Player it plays the menu. Only it doesn't show any image, just a '>' symbol that you can move with the mouse.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Bad DVD Playback Through BR-04B2T Blu-ray Reader

Aug 12, 2010

I'm having some issues with DVD playback. Blu-ray playback is not an issue (at least no more than it is for anyone else using Linux), but when I try to play a DVD the video is garbled and choppy, same as the audio. (see attached picture).

I'm using an Asus BR-04B2T blu-ray reader and an Evgo nVidia gtx460 with nvidia-current drivers.

I removed the blu-ray drive and put a friends dvd drive into my computer to test and see if it's the graphics card or the drive, and the DVD player worked perfectly, flawless playback, so I know it's the drive.

Also the drive is not faulty. Both DVD and Blu-Ray work fine under my windows 7 partition.

I forgot to mention, VLC behaves the same as all other players, as shown in this picture. Also you can almost make out that I'm trying to watch the Simpson's box set my friend got me.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: AVI Video Playback Tearing?

Oct 23, 2010

I'm sorry if this was asked before (i know it was but never worked for me) 2 days ago I installed ubuntu 10.10, my very first linux OS and I immediately fell in love with it.The only problem now, is tearing during video playback (I'm a perfectionist with a thing for fine details, so this is literally killing me)

I have nVidia 9200M GS (HP laptop)
I've set nVidia setting to sync vblank and disabled it in compiz
I've also disabled PowerMizer..

I love the system to give up some vsync issues in moving windows, but i just can't get over video tearing. I'm ready to install anything, change anything, even do a new clean install to get it working. UPDATE: Installed SMPlayer, works fine but drops couple of frames every 5 secs or so (more annoying than tearing lol) is there any specific settings that can fix that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music Playback Too Fast In 10.04?

Oct 27, 2010

I am having music playback issues in lucid right now. When I try to play music through any player, the music plays at a slightly higher speed - roughly 10% faster (a 3:17 song finishes in 2:5. I tried installing 10.10 and had the same problem, and I just went back to 10.04 with a fresh install and still seeing the issue. Is this a common problem for people? My sound hardware is the following as reported by lspci

00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 50)

For reference, I also have 2 other boxes in the house running 10.04 with different sound hardware with no issues. Their hardware are:

00:06.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Playback And Record At Sametime ?

Feb 22, 2011

I wish to record what I hear, and hear it through the speakers at the same time. Doesn't sound to unreasonable.

I first of had problems getting it to record anything at all, so threads here and here helped.

The problem I have is I can only switch between having playback/volume/output through the speakers AND no feed/volume to the recording process, OR the recording process has a audio source but I cannot hear it!

Im sure I had it working so it played out the speakers and recorded briefly, but dont know what I've done!

I installed many audio type packages along the way to getting it to record at all. I dont know what I need and dont.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xine DVD (iso) Playback Broken In 10.10?

Mar 23, 2011

I recently updated all my desktop/laptop and MythTV boxes to 10.10 and now Xine freezes if I hit any key or try to exit. No error message or anything, just freezes. It happens on ALL my machines. I can watch the movie fine as long as I don't hit any keys

sample launch:

xine --no-splash -V Xv dvd://mnt/mserv/DVD/ZATOICHI.iso

Everything worked fine in 10.04. I would love to eventually switch to MPlayer, VLC, or something else but I haven't found one that reliable supports menus, chapters, multiple audio tracks, 5.1 surround output, etc. from an ISO file. Why has no one caught up to Xine?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ogv And Mp4 Video Playback Looks Scrambled?

Apr 8, 2011

Both MP4 and OGV playback completely weird on my Ubuntu 10.04.2 laptop:

The resolution/length/etc is correct, but the picture is all weird. Webm doesn't work at all.

I tried mplayer, kmplayer, smplayer, gxine, totem and kplayer. All the same.

However, the exact same video's play back normally in HTML5 pages with a bunch of browsers on the same machine. They also play back normally on a Windows machine. There is no DRM involved.

Aren't these gstreamer en mplayer based players supposed to handle this correctly?

This is an Intel Core i3 machine with Intel HD graphics.

It currently will play on the PS3 but at double frame-rate and without sound. I'm not particularly wanting to re-encode the whole thing.

to how to demux the audio and video streams from the MP4 would be useful.
