I'm trying to watch a dvd on Lucid, but not vlc or xine can open it.I have the libdvdnav, libdvdcss and libdvdcss libraries from the medibuntu repositories installed.Here is the log I gget from vlc when I try to play the dvd. It seems as if cannot decode the format.
Code: libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 4.1.3 libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
For some reason, audio and video doesn't sync while playing MP4 video files. I have tried many MP4 files to confirm this is not specific file related issue. I have tried both VLC and Mplayer. Sound track doesn't sync with video track.
When I try playing any TTA files in Clementine, Rhythmbox or Movie Player all I hear is white noise. It plays normally in VLC and SMPlayer, but I want to be able to play TTA files in Clementine. I've been able to do so before I recently reinstalled Ubuntu 10.10 on my computer. I've tried installing ttaenc-3.4.1 from source, and nothing changed. I also tried installing ffmpeg-0.6.1 from source, but that didn't help either.
I've tried to search through this forum a couple of times to understand this problem, but no posts to date (that I've found) quite address it. Simply put, I am unable to get amarok to play mp3 files, which represent a large portion of my music collection.Every time I start the program, a window pops up advising me that amarok cannot play mp3 files, and it asks if I wish to install that support. Every time I click yes, it announces that the system has successfully done so, except that I might have to restart the program for the change to take effectEvery time I restart the program the same sequence happens. At no time does it ever play mp3 files.
I've tried to install every mp3 codec library I can find, none of this makes any difference.There was a time when amarok handled all this with absolutely no problem and behaved like a really good music manager, but that capability evidently was blown away by some software update that I probably wouldn't have run if I'd known what would happen.Does anyone know how to solve this? (Yes, I've tried using mmcheck. Does no good. This is openSUSE 11.3 for x86_64. Amarok Version 2.3.0 Using KDE 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 2"
I have mentioned this in another thread elsewhere but perhaps this is a better location. In Opensuse 11.3 I was able to play files on my NAS drive from within smplayer over samba shares or ftp. I would simply use dolphin to browse to the file on the nas drive (either through samba or ftp protocol), double click the .avi file and it would load smplayer and begin playing immediately.
In 11.4 I have samba set up using the same smb.conf file However, if I double click the .avi file it copies the entire contents to the local computer before launching smplayer. If I use smplayer's file selector and navigate to the file on the samba share I get the message "you can only select local files" This is a different behaviour to that from 11.3 However, using the ftp protocol from within dolphin smplayer launches immediately and begins playing. smplayer is launched using the shortcut command
Code: smplayer %U Does anybody have any suggestions on a workaround or how to correct? Using kaffeine I have no problems. Double click the file on the nas drive and kaffeine launches immediately and begins playing.
I changed the backend of phonon from xine to gstreamer because I wasn't able to play .avi files with xine. I installed libxine1, and libxine1-codecs, but Kaffeine, Dragon Player and Gwenview crashed when trying to play an avi file. After changing the backend I was able to play .avi files, but now I can't play DVD's, which I'm able to do switching back to the xine backend.
I have just installed openSuse 11.2 (64bit), and I installed the avi codecs as described in Restricted Formats/11.2 - openSUSE-Community with the 1-click installation for KDE. But kaffeine and xine are crashing when I try to play avi files.One thing I found out is that all packages are 64 bit packages only the w32codec-all version is 20071007-0.pm.1.1-i586 and I don't get offered a _64 package. Is this OK? What else could be the problem
I recorded a video from my DVB-T device Xine (and other Xine based players like Kaffeine) just play video and there is no audio (While other video formats has no problem! I tried with xine-ui , gxine and Kaffeine). But that video has no problem in mplayer or VLC! this is gxine report on video meta info:
Code: Audio Codec: AAC 2.0 (libfaad) Audio Format: 6 Channels, 32 bit, 44.1kHz, 54000 bps Video Codec: h.264/AVC (ffmpeg) Video Format: 720x576, 25.0 fps, 1.36:1, 0 bps System layer: MPEG_TS
I need to play or preferably convert (i.e. to MP3) old SNG files, which contain voice records. From what I could find, it's basically a MIDI created by synthetiser. I think it was recorded by some ancient VLC player. I failed so far to play it on anything I could download.
emachines W3115; CentOs 5.3 multiboot, KDE. Sound and video in general has worked fine on this machine. I have played MIDI files, converted them to WAV, and played them with one or more players, including noatun. When I install an audio CD, it brings up a window KDE Daemon which asks if I wish to:
Open in New window Extract and Encode Audio Tracks Play Do nothing. This is standard these days. The problem is, if I click on Play, it brings up a player called "player" which starts running smoothly, but no sound comes out of the speakers. I have no idea what 'player' is. There is no menu on it anywhere. DVD videos work fine, at least the Bonanza one I tried. If I open the CD rom, and right click a .wav file, either 'audio player' or 'mplayer' will play the file. Other choices don't.
*****If I go to the main menu ==> Multimedia and open Xine, then I can click on the CD button on Xine control and it will happily play the entire CD. *****
There are two ways to go on this. Unless someone has an idea what 'player' might be, and some idea how to fix it, another solution which I find suitable is to open XINE, when I click on that window choice stated above when CD is installed, which means I can select ALWAYS.I went to Configure on that mount window, and nothing seemed like it would actually let me configure anything at all. I figurer there is a script file which selects the command when PLAY is selected.
The problem is with a zillion Googles, I get all kinds of player information; all kinds of Centos information; etc., but nothing useful that has anything to do with my problem. how to change PLAY when it asks my choice on an installed CD, so it will run Xine? Note Centos forums does not allow a search on less then 3 characters, which makes it difficult to search for CD information.
not able to play any AV files. i have installed 10.10 on my desktop,i even installed VLC player,but if i run any audio,video file am not able to hear anything,even though the player volume and system volume is maximum..I am unable to hear even the boot up sound that we get hear when we login into ubuntu.
I have just installed Slackware 13.1 32bit. My hardware is a P-4 3Ghz with a gig of ram. Intel on board graphic and sound.
This is the best implementation of Kde I have used so far. Slack 13.1 is amazing. The install went very well and everything we configured properly.
My problem is when I start Kde or try to shut dowm or logout I get the same error for knotify: Unable to use the Xine Multimedia Backend:Could not find plugin 'Xine' for application 'Knotify'
I get this same error with the application name at the end of it. If I open amarok I get the same error message with amarok at the end. If I try to click a misic file in dolphin same error message.
When I try to shut down or log out from menu I get the xine error and nothing happens. The only way I can log out is Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to get to the KDM log in screen and then I am able to shut down from the menu.
I have been looking on the forum and using google but have found nothing useful.
The error pops up when I try to play a cd or music on the hard drive.
I tried playing a vcd on my lucid lynx and it was giving problems. after i put the cd in the cd-rom i could see a CD icon on the desktop as well as an autoplay wizard asking it to play with Movie player.
and when i said yes it gave an error saying
Code: "Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file." now when i try i to see the cd from terminal i could find that it was mounted at /media/VideoCD/
Recently pulled the plug on Windows 7 and changed completely to Linux. Don't regret it for a second and I will now stay Linux for the long haul. Just a couple of issues have emerged though....
1) All dvd's I have tried so far, do not play in Movie Player. Error message was:Location not found. (dvd file name does appear in play list though it does not play....I have let it search for plug ins and updates but the return was: Plug in not found (though it does not say what plug in was not found....which I hoped it might then I might know what it was...).
2) Vodafone MBB K3570-Z doesn't want to play ball either. Noticed no install message, not even as a recognised usb device.Looked at similar posts and tried editing, deleting and retrying. Ensured the user, password, APN, were all properly edited, but not a peep out of it.Also selected mobile broadband in network settings. But no connection at all. Also tried the usbmodeswitch too.
I'm able to open DVD data discs, it's just playing DVD movies which is the problem now.
I've followed the official ubuntu guide on this and it hasn't worked. Even with all the numerous posts regarding the matter I'm still unable to find a fix.
Thus I'm posting here. If I can't get this to work I'm fooking back off to Windows because I've wasted far too many hours as it is.
I'm running P4 2.4 Ghz, NEC 2500a DVD-RW drive. I've also got two other DVD drives, a Pioneer slot drive which I get the exact same problem and another one which I haven't tested yet as it appears to be a software problem.

hi, I'm having a massive problem getting my audio CD's to play since upgrading to 10.04.Whenever I try them I get the following message:Unable to mount disc: Location is not mountableWhen I check the System Log/messages I see the following repeated over and over...

I am Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) user. I cannot plat any dat file from VCD in my computer. I don't know why? I have already install all gstreamer plugins and Ubuntu Restricted Extras. I tried to play dat files from VCD by Mplayer, VLC player, Movie Player and Kaffein.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and am trying to get .mov files to play. I need these for lectures for a class. here is an error when I try to use them from mplayer in the terminal[wmv2 @ 0xb6579e00]header damagedError while decoding frame!Maybe the files are damaged. If you can direct me to a .mov sample file that I can download and try out
I normally tried yum lock for installing players like yum install xmms xmms-mp3 but it starts and when primary.sqlite.bz2 starts download it stops after sometime & try another mirror & finally never install what is the problem?
