Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Won't Play Wmv Or Plays With No Sound?

May 31, 2010

I'm on Kubuntu 9.10, using Totem to play .wmv files, and certain of them cause the player to search for an audio codec (wmap?) that is never found. The video played without audio after that. So I followed advice to remove ~/.gstreamer-0.10, and reboot. A new .gstreamer-0.10 directory appeared, but now, Totem will not even play the video. It recognizes the audio codec however. The video codec shows up as "Windows Media..." but resolution is 0 x 0, and nothing ever appears in the window. I tried uninstalling and re-installing w32codecs and non-free-codecs, and removing the registry files under ~/gstreamer-0.10 and using gst-inspect to rebuild the database,
but nothing helps.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Plays In WMP But Not In VLC / Totem Or MPlayer

Feb 10, 2010

My partner is a teacher and has downloaded some videos from a teacher's resource site but can't seem to play them in Ubuntu. They play fine in Windows XP using Windows Media Player but they only play a few seconds in VLC or Totem and then freeze. The files in question seem to be normal MPG (MPEG-1) video files but somehow VLC and Totem choke on them. I have installed all restricted video formats including w32codecs but still no joy. My partner is threatening to go back to Windows!

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Totem Still Plays Nothing And Get No Thumbnails Either

Jul 25, 2010

SM player works yes, but how do i get the thumbnail previews. I did a fresh install of opensuse, i installed the updates they Yast told me to. I followed the guide precisely this time, using the command line method and encountered some problems. 4 files, asked to be broken or use obsolete at the point where i have to do the switch to packman repository. I chose use obsolete cuz i didn't want to break anything. When i tried to set an mkv to open in SMplayer the optionw asn't there, only banshee and totem. I opened Yast and it told me to install opensuse codec installer and another file can't remember) which i did. The option to open files in SMplayer, Xine etc came up then.

I'd like to get the thumbnails and I'd like to see Totem work as well. I know i don't need to, but considering that i downloaded the neccesary codecs, i expect it to work :/ or am i wrong with that assumption On a totally unrelated note, is there a way to increase the resolution of the bootloader? i'd like to be 1920x1200 to full my screen

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok2 Sound Lost When Other Sound Plays

Dec 29, 2009

openSUSE 11.2 64bit
libxine1 from Packman
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)

Maybe it's just an Amarok2 problem, but whenever another app (for example Konversation) plays a sound file, the audio instantly cuts out (in Amarok2) and will not come back unless I quit Amarok2 and restart it.

Amarok2 has only the options - "HDA ATI SB VT 1708S Analog" or "PulseAudio" (which is NOT installed).

alsa-info here - [URL]

Also I am totally confused by the mixer, it has so many knobs that I am totally lost!

here's a lovely pic - [URL]

Ubuntu :: Speakers Play When Heaadphones Plugged In - Sound Plays Out Of Speakers

Jun 17, 2011

I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my Toshiba Satellite C655 laptop. When I plug my headphones, they sometimes work, they sometimes don't, but that's not the main problem. When they do work, sound also plays out of the speakers. The only solutions I was able to find were for earlier versions, which don't work for 11.04.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play Any WMA Files, Neither In Rhythmox, Totem, VLC, Or Mplayer

Jan 7, 2010

Since upgrading to 64-bit Karmic, I can't play any WMA files, neither in Rhythmox, Totem, VLC, or mplayer. It used to work well with 64-bit Intrepid.

I've added the medibuntu repos and installed ubuntu-restricted-extras (including w64codecs). Still, when rhythmbox or totem opens a WMA file, they search for an appropriate codec and don't find anything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid Fresh Install Totem Won't Play DVD Iso?

May 10, 2010

Just upgraded 4 machines from Karmic to Lucid. 2 of them I used synaptic to install ubuntu-restricted-extras and two I used apt-get from command line. The synaptics will not play a DVD iso in totem while the two from the command line will just fine. If I install VLC on the two that don't work, it plays the iso just fine.

I have purged libdvdread4 and reinstalled with no luck. It offends my sense of perfectness that two machines that used to run dvd iso's fine no longer do.

I did read a blog post somewhere that ubuntu-restricted-extras installed via synaptic does not get everything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Most Of OGV Files Not Play In Totem Movie Player

Jan 4, 2011

I have a lot of .ogv and .mpg files. Most of the .ogv files won't play, and none of the .mpg files will play, in Totem. I installed VLC media player and all the files will play in it. If I click on file properties in Nautilus for the files that won't play, it says "Creating Properties window. You can stop this operating by clicking cancel." But it never actually shows me the file properties.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mixers Detect Sound But Nothing Plays?

I uninstalled and then reinstalled both alsa and pulseaudio... and their respective mixers bounce around like they recognize sound is being made, but nothing comes out of the speakers. sound does work in windows so the speakers aren't blown. nothing is muted to my knowledge... alsa and pulse mixers are not on mute. output is set to Internal Audio and not HDMI stereo, though I never know which profile to be using.. i've pretty much tried them all to no avail. results of aplay -l

Debian Multimedia :: Totem Won't Play Flash Video

Apr 3, 2010

It seems to be able to play flash videos acquired from from video.google.com (ive only tried one) but NONE from ...... On other distros it will play ALL flash video from ANY source from the tmp directory perfectly fine.

Heres the original error

Search for suitable codec?

The required software to play this file is not installed. You need to install suitable codecs to play media files. Do you want to search for a codec that supports the selected file?

The search will also include software which is not officially supported.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Get Totem To Play Everything And Show Thumbnails?

Jul 17, 2010

restricted formats and i can play my videos with SMplayer, Xine, VLC etc but not Totem. Totem in 11.3 uses Gstreamer, and i believe i have all gstreamer plugins installed, good, bad, ugly, base etc. Also thumbnails won't show. Reason i want to use Totem? cuz it's integrated well with Gnome

THere's also this issue where everything i try to play wants to be played with banshee, how do i stop that? i tried going into Preferred applications and put it on custom, but i can't differentiate music and video, there's just a multimedia option.
I would like to have music autplayed with Banshee, and Video autoplayed with SMplayer without having to go through the right click, play with option :/

Full screen flash is aproblem in 11.3 64 bit just as it ALWAYS is in most distros i tried *sigh* there's stuttering, and i can't scroll through the video ideally.

For the sake of saving spack i have a non multimedia related question. How do i handle nzbs? in windows i use sabnzb which is cross platform, but their is only a Fedora RPM meaning i'll have to compile it for opensuse which i have NO Idea how to do. Alternative NZB handlers i can't find in the regular repositories or webpin.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.2 - VLC Plays Sound With Dropouts

Dec 9, 2009

After a fresh install of opensuse 11.2 I followed the multimedia guide to install mm-support. Sound is working, results in xine are excellent. Compared to 11.1, vlc now plays sound with drops about every second. To be more precise: sound is ok for several seconds, then a first drop appears. Thereafter the time between the following drops slowly shortens. After a minute or so, the drops come in intervals of about a second.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Plugin For Firefox Only Play Video From The Start

Sep 15, 2010

Sometimes for web TV one is offered a menu where the video is divided into sub chapters where you can jump right to this part of the video by clicking in a chapter menu (very similar to playing a DVD). Well, this does not work for me. Clicking a sub chapter only set the video to play from start, and sliding the bar only freezes the player with a white screen. I'm running 10.04 (64b), Firefox 3.6.9, with the latest Totem-plugin.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Installation Plays Sound Only On Original Computer?

Jun 1, 2010

I installed Ubuntu to a flash drive and it worked all dandy like. However, on other computers the audio doesn't work, neither can I install a driver for the graphics card to use effects and (at least so it seems to me) run 3D games. Is it trying to use the same hardware that it did on the first computer I used and therefore hasn't installed the right stuff?

EDIT: I can 'play' music, so I think the codecs are fine, but no audio comes out, so I'm thinking it must be a driver problem.

EDIT2: Apologies, I checked the "Comprehensive sound problems solution guide" and was able to fix the audio simply by unmuting the speakers. However, the graphics problem remains.

One other tid bit that might be relevant is that the first time I booted up on a different computer it did tell me (in different wording) that the graphics might have trouble because it was set up for a different hardware system, so I told it to set up a new configuration and that seemed all dandy.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Recorded Sound Plays Back Too Fast / Fix It?

I am having some problems with recording with my laptop. When I try to record something through the laptops mic, usb webcam mic or with desktop recorders audio record feature all playback is too fast (sounds a bit like alvin and the chipmunks :L ) Is anybody else having this problem, or even better know how to fix it ?

Sorry if this has been asked before, I'm running 10.10 and had never tried recording before I upgraded to 10.04. I had the same problem in 10.04 though.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 5.1 Surround Sound Plays Very Poor Quality

Nov 8, 2010

I got a 5.1 desktop sound sys for my recently built gaming rig. It sounds great. On Windows, that is. In ubuntu when I'm playing music, primarily when the subwoofer plays the bass, the speakers sound like they're farting and ripping phone books in half. Also, they get very statticy and sort of quiet. In sound preferences, analog stereo duplex is selected, if that's of any value. How can I get good sound playback in ubuntu?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Won't Play Back Video/ts File From DLNA Server

Jul 21, 2011

I'm having trouble playing back videos from a DLNA device in Ubuntu 11.04, and I'm not sure where the problem lies.

Using the software manager I've installed the extra plugins package for Totem, and enabled the Coherence DLNA/UPNP plugin. I can see the device (Humax Freeview HD recorder) in the MediaServers list, and can browse through the programmes I've recorded on it. However, trying to play any of the has no effect, the main part of the window still shows the "clapperboard" graphic.

I noticed that the "recent files" filenames that were appearing on the Movie menu didn't match the ones that were listed in the sidebar - they're of the form e.g. 313.TS rather than the original descriptive name with a .ts extension. Running Totem from a shell prompt, I can see the following console output: request to play: Man on Earth_20110622_0508.ts 013311314 I tried entering that URL into Firefox, and it started downloading okay; according to the LiveHTTPHeaders addon the response headers are

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Server: HUMAX / MicroMediaServer
Accept-Range: bytes
Content-Type: video/ts
Content-Length: 1799258112
Pragma: no-cache
Cache-Control: no-cache

Why can't Totem play the file? Some other codec needed for video/ts files that I've not got installed? (it hasn't prompted me to install any extra packages) Does it just not like the fact the file extension is upper case? Or something else entirely?

On a separate machine, also running Ubuntu 11.04, I installed the VideoLan client; VLC can browse to the files and play them without any problem. So why can't Totem?

Debian Multimedia :: Upgraded To Jessie From Wheezy - Sound Plays On Everything But Browsers

Dec 25, 2014

I just installed wheezy and upgraded to jessie. I had previously gotten sound working in wheezy by installing the flashplugin-nonfree and flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound packages, after configuring my headset in system settings. However, now I can't get sound to play in firefox. I've installed flashplugin-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound, and pulseaudio, still without luck. The volume is turned all the way up in alsamixer, sound tests play fine, and I can play music in VLC without any problems. This leads me to believe it's not a problem with drivers, but with some package I'm missing that will allow firefox to play sound. Sound wasn't working in the default video player either, before I installed the flash plugin. Is there something I'm missing?

Also, sound doesn't play on Konqueror either (KDE browser), which seems to indicate it's a problem with flash and not with firefox itself. After removing the flash plugin and installing pepperflashplugin-nonfree to ensure the pepper plugin was used instead of flash, sound still would not play in chromium, so I reinstalled the flash plugin and still don't have sound in any browser.
