I like this linux distribution more than the others that i have used, because is more stable for my work. But there are some little problems that I can't solve. I'm using it with a laptop HP G60 and i can run OpenOffice, Mozilla and some other programs (python, grass, qgis) that used for work at the office, but when I go home and want to watch a movie with my girl, listen some music or any other simple task, i find a lot of little problems:
1. Adjust the bright of the screen, the Power Management Guidance don't do it and I really need it.
2. Can't play movies in VLC "No suitable decoder module. VLC does not support the audio or video format XVID. Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this"
3. And today I can't play music because there is a message "KDE detected that one or more internal sound devices were removed" this is: Output HDA Intel, INTEL HDMI 0 (HDMI Audio Output)
I know maybe these problems are stupid but in windows is easier to fix them. I'm tired of search in google because i just find solved problems for Ubuntu and it takes a lot of time.
I have a NAS set up (ubuntu server 10.04) which contains all my music. But when I play music from it, I can not see how long the song is and I can not skip to a specific time in the song. When I play video, all works well.
I should mention that the card actually works and I am able to play sound through all the different out pouts, analog, Adat etc. But what I am not able to do is to use the 8 channels digital adat outputs in 4 separate stereo channels.
If I try configuring my asound.conf with 4 direct pcm devices:
I have a project to run simultaneously up to 8 video streams, from a pool of about 100 multicast cameras, and display them on 4 monitors. The PC I am using is a brand-new dual CPU 4-core Intel Xeon E5620 2.40GHz, Intel S5520SCR motherboard, 8GB memory and nvidia Quadro NVS 450 graphics. It's running Fedora 14 64-bit and outputs on 2x2 LCD monitors using Xinerama. So far, so good.
Playing a single video stream from any camera works fine. The problem is that, when I open a 2nd media player window with the purpose of playing other camera, all those two video windows play a single stream. It doesn't matter which camera stream I opened first, as soon as I open a 2nd stream, both windows show the same stream (either the first, or the second, at what seems to be a random choice). Further, a 3rd or a 4th video window will also play the same stream. In other words, one stream sort of "contaminates" all the other streaming windows to play that particular stream only. The problem remains the same even when the following changes are applied:
- graphics driver: nvidia or nouveau; - video player: vlc or mplayer; - number of active monitors: 4, 2 or 1.
I am really puzzled because, on the same computer, Windows XP SP3 32-bit runs beautiful. I can smoothly play up to 12 video streams and some computer applications, simultaneously. I cannot believe that an obsolete OS such as Windows XP can outperform by a long shot Fedora 14 64-bit in video streaming projects. Just doesn't make sense.
Note: I have also tested Windows 7 64-bit, it also runs multiple video streams in parallel without any problems, but Win 7 has issues that XP is free of (such as graphics output glitching every few seconds).
I was trying to hear a webradio that streams in AAC+ with Audacious. (see: [URL].. I didn't work. So I searched the web and found this Thread: [URL]...-4-3-a-808167/ I installed faad2 from SlackBuilds.org and rebuild Audacious from Slackware's ftp server -> [URL]...xap/audacious/ But Audacious still doesn't play that stream. Here is the "tail" of the strace output:
Every KDE4 application seems to take over the sound card. If I'm playing a song in Amarok and launch Dragon Player, the song stops. If I'm playing a song in an xterm using "mplayer -ao alsa" and then launch Dragon Player, the song stops. Most annoying of all, if I'm playing music in _anything_ and then a notification sounds in Kopete, the music stops.However, if I launch two xterms and play two different MP3s by running "mplayer -ao alsa" in each one, both songs play. So software mixing is working with my sound card.
This made me wonder if KDE is outputting music through OSS instead of ALSA. Well, KDE's audio backend is set to xine, and xine is outputting through ALSA. Under System Settings->Multimedia->Audio Ouput, the only devices I see.
I have Fedora 11 and I cannot play a windows media stream in Firefox. E.g. http://www.rogersplus.ca/movie.asp?mid=35147# from this site I cannot view trailers in Windows Media Format but I can using Real Player. When I select Windows Media Stream, all I see is a black window in place of video.
I have installed following plugins in Firefox, DivX Browser Plug-in (Geko Media Player 0.9.8), MozPlugger 1.12.1, gecko-mediaplayer 0.9.8, VLC Multimedia Plug-in 1.0.3.
I want to play a Quicktime stream and can't figure it out. When I try to play it either in Firefox or Movie Player, it says I need a text/html decoder plugin, but doesn't find one from the autosearch. Downloaded Ubuntu Restricted Extras from the Software Center, but no luck (don't know if I'm supposed to "do" something after that). MPlayer doesn't work on my computer, and I've also downloaded Avidemux, thinking maybe I'd get the right codec or plugin, but again, no luck. I am on Ubuntu 10.04 on an Eee PC, if it makes a diff.
I'm a new openSUSE 11.2 user and lately I've been getting repeated notifications from KDE saying that "the audio playback device HDA Intel(AD198x Analog) does not work" I get audio if I stream videos off the Internet but Amarok can't seem to play audio.
I am trying to stream a video between two Ubuntu 9.04 stations using GStreamer. The following code is run on the emitting machine: Code: gst-launch videotestsrc ! queue ! ffenc_mjpeg ! udpsink port=5000 host=192.168.1.100 -v And the following on the receiving machine with IP 192.168.1.100: Code: gst-launch udpsrc port=5000 caps="image/jpeg, width=320, height=240, framerate=30/1" ! queue ! ffdec_mjpeg ! ximagesink sync=true -v Whatever the order I'm running them (emit first or receive first), I'm getting the following error once both are connected (I can see the Ethernet lights blinking):
ERROR*: element /GstPipelineipeline0/GstUDPSrc:udpsrc0*: internal error data flow. gstbasesrc.c(245: gst_base_src_loop (): /GstPipelineipeline/GstUDPSrc:udpsrc0: streaming task paused, reason not-negotiated (-4) Execution ended after 3191625000 ns.
Is there any way to check if a url points to a streaming video file or not programmatically. For example with this url : [URL].. I should get TRUE and with the url : [URL]..should return FALSE.
We have a Jetway JBC600C99-52W-B (Mini-top) with Xubuntu 10.10 and Logitech Z-205 USB Speakers but I have no sound. EDIT: fixed after installing gnome-volume-control and selecting my output device. Now i have a other problem, when i stream a video it plays sound for 1 second and when i click the play button it works fine for a while but after a few minutes the audio stops again. the video plays fine.
I installed/updated my flash media drivers because i had poor quality video in fullscreen. now fullscreen looks great on ..... and other streaming sites. the only problem is that everytime i attempt to stream from hulu, i get "sorry, we are unable to stream this video. please check your internet connection and try again."
There is an udp video stream accessible only on the local network, but I need to access it outside of the network. I have Linux machine (multiple actually) with root access.There is a small utility that makes the stream accessible on the local machine on port 1234.
./ping -h streamserver -p 1234
If I run it I can access the stream using vlc or mplayer.
mplayer udp://@:1234 vlc udp://@:1234
Now, I'm trying to create a port foward from my remote machine and access the port, but it is failing.
Is there a way that I can specify the height and with of the stream on the command line? From what I read, it looks like a #transcoder option would work, but I cant seem to figure it out. The above command is working, and I can view the stream, but it's extremely slow, and continuously freezes and buffers. My thinking is that if I can reduce the scale of the video.
I've looked around and found some programs avaialable in linux to stream video. I'm looking to stream to my PS3 but would like to be able to stream to my other computers. I would like the program to transcode too. I'm really looking for opinions on which one to use. I tried PS3 Media Server, it worked fine but it tended to be a resource hog. Also, I had trouble seeing it on other computers.
I'm running Debian Squeeze on an old AMD 3000+ but that will be updated here in the future. This is all internal personal network. Most computers will be on wired lan.Opinions? Ease of configuration, ease of use, stablilty?
Hello. I use dvd::rip 0.98.10 to create .wav sound files from DVDs and then play them in Totem Movie Player 2.28.2 (using GStreamer 0.10.25) mainly because I like the visualizations. It always used to work, but a recent batch will not play. I get: GStreamer encountered a general stream error. I probably used a more recent version of dvd::rip for the ones which don't play. Both MPlayer and VLC Media player plays them without a problem and older rips play fine in Totem too. The Audio/Video properties of a 'faulty' file (as shown in Nautilus) are greyed out for codec, channels etc., whereas a 'good' file shows Audio properties as Uncompressed 16-bit PCM audio etc., but running soxi on a good or bad file gives the same (good) results. I'd like to get this working, without doing anything to the .wavs preferably, so I guess I need to do something to Gstreamer, but I'm really not sure how to proceed. I'm using Linux Mint 8 64bit (rt kernel) and very nice it is too.
I've been playing around with Damn Small Linux 4.4.10 on my Dell Inspiron 3000 laptop for quite a while now, and this is the first time I've been downright stumped. To make a long story short, I'm trying to play 480p video on a machine with a 233 MHz Pentium processor, 112 MB of ram, and a Neomagic MagicGraph 128XD graphics card (NM2160). Crazy? Maybe, but I don't think so. I'm using MPlayer set to Xv mode with the XFree86 4.3.0 server, and so far, I've been able to get it to play 360p mpegs with minimal stuttering. However, MPlayer crashes with 480p. This is because the 128XD only has 2 MB of memory, which, after the 1024x768x16 screen takes its share, doesn't leave enough room for a 640x480 overlay.
The creators of MPlayer are aware of this limitation, and suggest adding the following line to my XF86Config file: Option "OverlayMem" "829440"
As I understand it, this is supposed to extend the video card's frame buffer into system memory, thus allowing the higher resolution video to play. However, it doesn't work, based on this output from my XFree86 log file: cannot reserve 829440 bytes for overlay...
Some other suspicious-looking lines from the log file:
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 running Windows 7 64bits and Ubuntu 10.04 64bits. My problem is that when I'm connected to my wireless router the connection crashes when I watch a live stream video such ..... or something else. It does not happen when I'm connected via cable to the router nor in Windows 7 when I'm connected via wifi.
I want to do a video streaming to a remote PC across the internet. The video bitrate is around 600 kbps. But my internet connection supports only a maximum upload bandwidth of 400 kbps.So I thought I will get one more connection and use the combined upload b/w of 800 kbps to stream the video. I hope there should be a way to split the stream across two interface and merge them together at the remote endpoint. All this has to be done at real time.
I'm vaguely remembering a video stream ripper that was open source and could be compiled for linux, mac, and windows. It's name ended with ++ and I can't remember anything else Basically, it was like StreamTransport but open source and multiprotocol capable. Can anybody help me find it again? I'd be open to alternatives too of course! My basic need is to rip anything being rendered by my video card.
