Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fix Transcoding To PSP Format In Newer Versions Of Avidemux?

Sep 12, 2010

In newer versions of Avidemux wrong parameters are set when choosing "Sony Playstation Portable" from the Auto menu. The PSP doesn't support more than 2 reference frames or 8x8 DCT Transform.

This is how you can fix it. Backup the original file

sudo cp /usr/lib/ADM_plugins/videoEncoder/x264/Sony PlayStation Portable.xml /usr/lib/ADM_plugins/videoEncoder/x264/Sony PlayStation Portable.xml.org
Edit the file
sudo gedit /usr/lib/ADM_plugins/videoEncoder/x264/Sony PlayStation Portable.xml
Change this line

Debian Multimedia :: Official Policy For Newer Versions Of KDE?

Feb 27, 2011

I just wanted to ask about official opinion or policy concerning newer versions of KDE. Is 4.6 still so buggy or unstable to be included in experimental? What steps are going to be made concerning KDE and what when? I don't like GNOME, KDE 3.5 is out of the game now in 6.0 and KDE 4.4 is IMHO all but mature and finished. So I am not sure what to do now, Kubuntu is buggy and don't like it but they have 4.6...

Ubuntu :: LTS 10.4 Versus Upgrading To Newer Versions

Nov 2, 2010

currently my laptops is running 10.10 I haven't been having any problems so far nor I felt any improvement (functionality wise) over 10.4 . But today I came across a small problem: I went to Cilenerra's website - a Powerful video editing software. I saw that they have a version for 10.4 but not for 10.10 yet. Now I'm unable to get that software.

1. My question is, will I be encountering this type incompatibility issues in the future if I keep getting the latest Ubuntu distros?

2. What if I choose to install 10.4 LTS and stick with it long term? Will I start getting incompatibility issues after a year or so?

3. Will the 10.4 get more and more stable and responsive with newer updates until the new LTS?

EDIT: and if you're wondering, I tried installing the repository of Cinelerra, but the Ubuntu Software Centre kept telling me that there's no version available for my OS.

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast Does Not Show Newer Versions

Jan 22, 2010

I just installed openSuse 11.2. I added extra repo's like packman and Mozilla. I gave them priority level 80. The normal openSuse repo's have priority level 99.Still, Yast does not show newer versions from Packman or Mozilla.Yast completely ignores the prioritylevels of the repo's.The only time Yast shows packages from other repo's, is when they are not in the default repo's, like XMMS,w32codec-all, etc.So the repo's are added in the right way,but something strange happens in software management.

When I search for firefox, it shows the old version 3.5.6-1.1.1.When I click on the tab versions, I see that version 3.6.0-1.2 is there from openSuse buildservice.Why is Yast not showing the higher version (available) in the mainscreen?When I select it manually, Yast complains about dependancies because it is not aware of newer versions of mozilla xulrunner.

Ubuntu :: Need Newer Versions Of Software Onto Intepid Ibex Release Of System

May 13, 2010

Is there any way to get newer versions of software onto the Intepid Ibex release of Ubuntu? I have to stick to this version as later versions break my Video card support but Imuch prefer some of the newer versions of software. For example Amarok refuses to update to 2.0 and beyond. Is this merely a matter of changing repositories to later versions, or am I restricted by the version of X.org I am running?

Is removing previous older kernels "vmlinuz", when updates do get a newer version an easy task, or do the more recent Linux like Ubuntu 9.10 do that automatically, and only keep a few older previous kernels ?

OpenSUSE :: Format Drive With Newer Gparted Without Unused Space?

Apr 27, 2011

For a while now, I have been using an older version of gparted (0.4.5) from an older bootable Linux disk to format my hard drives. The version included with Suse 11.4 (0.8.0) has given me a puzzle. I tend to create a number of partitions (3 primary, an extended, and a number of logical) on my disks. For some reason, version 0.8.0 seems to requires 1 mb of space between each partition, and 2-3mb of space at the end of the drive. With the older gparted, I could create partitions with no unused disk allocation. Is there some reason for this new behavior? Is there some way to format a drive with the newer gparted without unused space? I realize that 10-15mb of disk is fairly small, but I have this dislike of wasted space. The drives being formatted are SATA drives in the range of 250gb -750gb.

CentOS 5 :: "Proper" Way To Install Newer Versions Than Provided By Yum?

Jan 13, 2010

I'm stuck in an ugly situation where I *have* to upgrade some packages to newer versions than what yum provides. For example, the latest openssh-server is 4.3 and I need 4.4 or higher.

Obviously I can compile the packages I need myself, but are there any sort of "best practices" to avoid making too much of a mess? Should I be installing stuff side-by-side with both versions? Anything distro-specific to keep in mind when building?

OpenSUSE :: Get Function Set_magic_quotes_runtime() To Function On The Newer Versions?

Mar 30, 2011

I'm currently using OpenSuse 11.1 web server. This is bad since 11.1 is no longer supported. the reason why I am using it is because Function set_magic_quotes_runtime() was no longer being used. (so I was told)

That being said, is there a way to get Function set_magic_quotes_runtime() to function on the newer versions of OpenSuSE?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Converting WMA To MP3 With VLC - Transcoding Failed

Jan 22, 2010

I tried converting wma to mp3 with vlc, but an error comes up this is what it says.
p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }
Streaming / Transcoding failed:
It seems your FFMPEG (libavcodec) installation lacks the following encoder:
MPEG Audio layer 1/2/3.
Either how can I get that encoder for vlc or what else can I use to convert wma to mp3?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Transcoding Audio With Mencoder?

Mar 7, 2010

I'm trying to convert a video in .ogm format to .avi format so I can stream it to my PS3 via uShare. I'm using Mencoder and the following command to do it (to transcode the audio from vorbis to mp3 and the video from mpeg4 to xvid):

Code: mencoder input.ogm -oac mp3lame -ovc xvid -xvidencopts pass=1 -o output.avi.The only problem is, the video contains 2 audio streams - one Japanese and one English. Needless to say, I need the English one. The above command only seems to transcode the Japanese audio though!Here's what ffmpeg has to say about the input file:

Input #0, ogg, from 'input.ogm':
Duration: 00:24:16.12, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 1280 kb/s[code]...

what I can do to specify the correct audio stream to encode? Also, how can I keep the bitrate the same as the output.avi seems to default to 96kbps?I'm not sure which audio stream is which but a little trial and error will sort that out in no time.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVD - RIP Transcoding Multiple Titles?

Sep 21, 2010

Can't find anything quite like this having been asked already I have just bought all of Babylon 5, and want to put it on my hdd instead of using the discs. dvd::rip works fine for me. I can rip and then transcode titles to AVI manually. What I want is to rip a disc or two, and then have dvd::rip transcode them overnight (takes about 50 minutes per episode on my machine). I tried this on the command line: dvdrip -f transcode -t 2 b5s1d1.rip which, after briefly loading the GUI, just gets this error: Can't locate object method "error_dialog" via package "Video:VDRip::GUI::Main" at /usr/share/perl5/Video/DVDRip/GUI/Main.pm line 173. Gave up and found dvd::ripqueue, which is a gui utility that automates what I would have put into a script, but it doesn't work properly - dvd::rip launches, but only performs the first pass and produces no output. My projects were set up and saved correctly (as I said, all this works if I start it manually from the dvd::rip GUI).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Record Audio W/o Transcoding Using Cvlc?

Jan 4, 2010

The commandcvlc --run-time 180 "http://amber.streamguys.com:4500/wcvehd1.m3u" --sout file/ogg:/home/mikeb/Audio_Recordings/WCVE-test"$(date +%F-%T)".oggwill successfully record a stream from my local NPR station. If I understand the messages thatare printed to stdout when I run it, this transcodes the mp3 stream to an ogg filece I am using this to timeshift a program that I otherwise would not be able to listen to, I would prefer simply to dump the stream in mp3 format without transcoding. tried changing "ogg" "dump" but that produces an error about the --sout option. Can someone tell me how to modify this command so that it simply dumps the incoming stream to a file in mp3 format

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Avidemux Installed But Not In Menu

Aug 9, 2011

I installed avidemux so I can split a video file. However avidemux doesn't show up on the menu. It should appear in Applications->Sound and Video but it's not showing up under any of the menu items. When I go to Ubuntu Software Centre it shows that avidemux is installed. How do I find it so I can run it? I'm running Karmic.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Very Slow X264 Encoding Using Avidemux In 10.04

May 8, 2010

I have been using Avidemux to encode edited video using x264 and the mp4 container for most of my videos. My PCs are not new, using single-core AMD Athlon processors.

In 9.04 and 9.10 (Linux Mint), encoding speeds ranged from 7 to 10 frames per second. In 10.04 these dropped down to less than 2 frames per second.

I booted back into Linux Mint 8 (9.10) and the same video encoded at the previous 7 to 10 fps.

I tried with other videos in different formats (mpeg2 and VOB). The results were the same - 10.04 was extremely slow encoding x264 but Mint 8 was "normal" at 7 to 10 fps.

With a dual-core notebook, however, the encoding speeds ran at 8 to 14 fps in 10.04.

Was 10.04 optimized for dual and multi-core at the expense of single-core? If so, is there a way to restore "single-core optimization"?

I open the working video file with AVIDEMUX, and check out the properties, but there is option in the lists to the left to convert to the video type that is open. Is there anyway to export the video properties, then convert any video, to those parameters?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Avidemux Renaming Of Mp4 Files - Home Folder Don't Include The Prefix

I have used avidemux to cut a mp4 file, choosing just a part of it, and I have discovered it automatically adds "avidemux" to the beginning of the name of the file, plus the author of the file and that I cannot edit the file to erase it. Note that I talk about "right click - properties", and that the file, as seen from home folder dont include the "avidemux" prefix, but if, for instance, I run the file with VLC, "avidemux" will appear, and that is annoying. how to delete that annoying avidemux prefix?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Install Newer ATI Drivers For ATI HD 5770 On 10.10 X64?

Jan 11, 2011

Last night I was playing around with my system trying to install newer ATI drivers for my ATI HD 5770 on Ubuntu 10.10 x64. In my ignorance I downloaded the latest package from the ATI website and installed them directly over the drivers already running (...which were installed through the restricted software application). This caused a noticeable graphical slow down.

To correct my bad driver install I removed the downloaded package using the uninstall .sh found within ATI's wiki. However, the video performance did not improve. I then also removed the fglrx install through the repository, thinking this would revert me back to open source drivers upon reboot; Similar to how Windows reverts back to the OS driver when all 3rd party drivers have been removed.

However, this did not work as planned. On reboot I was presented with a 'no signal found' error with my monitor after viewing the Ubuntu splash screen (which does still display, oddly). After which I rebooted and attempted attempted a low graphical boot through the recovery menu, with the same result. Returning to the recovery console, I attempted to simply reinstall the fglrx driver


I am at wits end. Is there anyway for a newbie such as myself to recover from this double driver install/purge/etc? If not, is there a way to re-install the Ubuntu O/S files, but leave my installed programs/config files in place? While I know I can boot to a live CD to backup my content and reformat, it does take a very long time to move 500Gb of data between two drives.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Newer NVidia Drivers Won't Work With Asus Laptop

May 10, 2010

There are currently two options for nVidia drivers in Lucid Lynx, 173, and current. With the video card in my laptop, 9650m GT, the 173 drivers work but Docky is painfully, unusably slow. With the "current" drivers, Docky is fine but I get progressively worse and worse static-type lines across my screen and eventually it the machine restarts itself. I've tried installing drivers manually but they won't compile against the kernel.

Before installing Lucid, I had 9.04 Jaunty installed, and Docky (at the time still merged with gnome-do) worked without a hitch. I ran into this error first when I installed 9.10 and decided to go back to 9.04, hoping that it would be fixed. I can't remember which version of the nVidia drivers I was using in Jaunty, but is there any way to go back to those drivers in Lucid?
