i know this is probably a really novice question.. but i can't seem to find where the mount direcotry for my mp3 player is.. its showing up in rhythm box, but when i look in media its not there, and when i click on places its not showing up either..
I've been trying to get my mp3 files on my ubuntu 10.10 pc to my mp3 players. However, ubuntu doesn't recognize my mytouch 3g, ipod nano, and my g1. I can't mount neither of my android phones and ipod. what should I do?
wasn't quite sure how to search for this the question always seemed to be too long and i'd get nothing related to my problem. its not a huge problem, but if i could fix it, that's be awesome
there's websites, such as videos, that i can't choose anything in the actual media player... to be more specific, it plays just fine, but it i wanted to pause, turn down the volume, rewind, or skip ahead, nothing happens, it acts as though i'm not clicking on anything. i guess its not a big deal, but just a little annoyance.
I went through and downloaded quite a few different media players, looking for one that would play this DVD. Well, I finally found one that worked, but now I can't remember which one it is, so I don't know which ones to remove. I want a media player that allows me to watch DVD's, listen to MP3/4's, watch all different types of movie files, make play lists, etc. Here's the list of what I have installed:
Amarok Banshee Dragon Player Freevo Kaffeine Movie Player Movie Player Totem (xine backend) Rhythmbox VLC Media Player
So, which ones can I get rid of, and which one(s) should I keep?
Of late my music players (vlc, rythmbox, movieplayer, audacious) are ALL not working. Even indicator applets are messy. I have tried time and again to fix them but am lost. I have very little knowledge of ubuntu stuff and I have to use it since its the office preferred OS.
Only a few minutes ago, my sound just seemed to disappear while I was listening to some Dream Theater.
The onboard sound is disabled in the BIOS as I'm using another card. Rhythmbox won't play anything. Starting a song just leaves the progress bar sitting at the start. Sound preferences shows everything up at full. I tried modding the volume, but I can't move it (It moves for like a millisecond then hits 100% again).
It's a C-Media sound card. It was working perfectly prior to a few minutes ago.
I have burnt a data DVD (containing mp3 files) from k3b with the default settings (filesystem: Linux/Unix+Windows). No Windows machine, and no DVD players recognize it. My linux machine can read it back, and a Mac notebook could also read it. What can be the problem? Does anybody have an idea? I tried disabling the RockRidge extension - the same result. CDs (burnt with the same settings) work fine.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 dual booted with XP on a laptop. Whenever I try to play any video files, even just bog standard avi files, the media player just shuts down and disappears. This has happened with the movie player that comes with the OS as well as VLC. I also tried out Dragon Player and the files seem to load up and when played the timeline slider just skips across to the end in about 5 seconds but no picture is shown during this time. The codecs all appear to be installed fine even though I know that VLC doesn't require them. My video card is ATI and I know that it works fine as these files play alright when booted up into XP, Hi-Def included.
Got my system's audio up, but I'm having a real problem keeping streaming audio going, either in VLC or in the default movie player thing.It'll go for a while and then just stop. I guess it's having a problem with "resume" function or buffering.Any thoughts on this? I'm not having that problem with VLC in XP on the same connection.
I am running Maverick on Asus k52J laptop. I recently updated my clementine to 0.6 and since then all my music players are crashing on song play (includes banshee, clementine and rhythmbox). I removed and reinstalled all players, changed repositories and downgraded, reinstalled qt and python but nothing seems to fix the problem with these players.I installed some other players (audacious, exaile, vlc, foobnix) and they are working pretty well. But I am addicted to clementine and banshee.
Rhythmbox crashes on startup, Clementine crashes once I try to play any file, Banshee crashes after the first second of any file. Totem actually still works, but it's not a very satisfying media player. :P This occurred suddenly after working fine for, well, months. I read that I should check whether I have the standard up-to-date gstreamer/pulseaudio/liborc versions installed, this seems to be the case.
One of the things I love most about SMPlayer is that it will pick up from the same spot at which the file was closed previously i.e. if I watched 20 minutes of a movie then had to go out, when I open up the file again it starts right at 20 minutes. I was wondering if anyone knew of any music player programs that do the same thing, I mostly listen to audiobooks so that feature would come in very handy. Currently I am using Rhythmbox.
I was streaming a video when suddenly I got a warning that a script was running. I closed the browser and then the computer became really slow.I re-started my computer and had mounting problems. That is fixed now.However, my vlc and other players are not functioning properly. Moreover, whenever I stream a video, it always gets stuck and becomes slow. This has been persisting for quite sometime now.
I wonder which are the main disadvantages of using console based music players like cmus. I was looking around for reviews and comparisons with GUI music players but didn't find a lot of information which, to me, is a sign that console based players are so much worse off that there is no need to even compare them to their graphical relatives.
However, as I see it, I gain both speed and free up system resources by running a light weight music player in the terminal rather than one with a GUI. Then, I'm not at all very knowledgeable when it comes to audio players and music files so I'm thinking I'm missing something here. But what? Do I lose some tagging functionality, playlist or equalizer options or maybe even sound quality due to different usage of sound drivers or something? Or do people simply stay away from players like cmus just because they can't point and click with the mouse? (I guess it might be hard to get them to work intuitively with USB-attached mp3-players, but that's not a probelm for me.)
I installed Unbuntu and tried a couple of media players to listen to music. This was a cd I put in the cd Rom. Both media players seemed to work ok, except that I was not getting any sound from either one. I did check to see if the volume control was on nil. That was ok. I do however have Sound blaster sound card installed. so my on board sound is off. I am not into the linux language as yet so I am a bit stuck at the moment.
I am so completely frustrated with this and can't seem to find any solid answers. I have a Google Nexus One phone. I want to also use it as a portable music player. I can find no player for Linux that can do ALL of the following:
- copy music - transcode when necessary - transfer cover art in appropriate format - transfer playlists (music files AND .m3u playlist files)
Banshee is the closest, but it is so painfully slow, has many problems with tags and also doesn't transfer playlist files. Banshee advertises support "out of the box" for this device. I've tried overriding with an .is_audio_player file, but it is ignored. Rhythmbox will transfer song files and transcode as necessary, but no artwork, no playlists. Exaile doesn't recognize this device for some reason.
