Ubuntu Multimedia :: QuickTime Renderer Was The Only Rendering Container That Didn't Result In Sped-up/compressed Video Or Correct Rendering For Just Fifteen Seconds?

Mar 7, 2010

I downloaded an FLV video and placed an extra MP3 file over it. Two files. Total: 30 MBI experimented with about seven rendering containers, and QuickTime renderer was the only rendering container that didn't result in sped-up/compressed video or correct rendering for just fifteen seconds.How in the name of all that is holy did this rendering end up with 570 extra MB?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: "Nvidia: Direct Rendering Failed, Attempting Indirect Rendering"

Apr 3, 2010

I recently downloaded Frets On Fire and the HRP Polymer pack for Duke3D...Duke3D runs fine with just EDuke32 and no mods, just Duke3D and EDuke32. But when I try the HRP Polymer pack, it says in Terminal "NVIDIA: Direct Rendering failed, attempting indirect rendering." This is fine...if I want the game to lag like hell, I'm sure my video card and the driver for it support DR, the video card is a NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200, the same message appears in terminal when I run Frets On Fire, I think it does with other games too, if someone could explain how to enable Direct Rendering.

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasle Rendering Bugs (Black Selection Box)

Feb 11, 2011

I'm noticing some odd rendering glitches under Iceweasle 3.5.16, with GNOME 2.30.2 running Debian 6.0 i386 default install.Google for example has an odd black bar that blinks, it almost seems like some odd selection bug (but I have not made any selection). Sometimes it doesn't appear other times right after starting Iceweasle it happens. Any ideas? It happens on other websites in random areas.

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz With NVidia - White Bars And Screwed Rendering

Feb 12, 2010

I installed compiz with nvidia trouble is when I run compiz white bars or lines (bars) appear in open windows (icewease, gedit, etc.). They disappear after a few moment and reappear when scrolling a page. BTW everything works fine with metacity running as window manager.

Here is my xorg.conf:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (randy@juliet2) Fri Sep 5 15:03:39 PDT 2008
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (randy@juliet2) Tue Jun 24 10:44:02 PDT 2008
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection .....

I have the nvidia driver 173.14.09 installed. Running Debian Lenny stable x64 and turion x2 with a geforce 8200M G graphics card with dual screens. I first installed the debian repos compiz, then upgraded to the tuxfamily repo version. I installed the nvidia driver 190 from nvidia's website and that fixed it!

Debian Multimedia :: Weird Content Rendering With Iceweasel - Can't Click On Any Of The Links

Jun 7, 2011

Alright ... recently switched from Ubuntu with FF 4.0 to Debian with Iceweasel which I had to upgrade to 4.0 since I really liked the way it worked on Ubu 10.10 ... but I'm having some really strange rendering issues. Flash is not a problem at all, works fine on all flash sites that I've checked out. Some sites though, including this Debian forum, do not show everything in the Iceweasel browser window.

For example, sometimes I'll be browsing on a page with huge chunks of white, clearly indicating that "something" should be in those spaces. When I look at those same pages with Chrome or Opera, everything is filled the way it should be ... all content is displaying properly.

On some sites, like this forum, the rendering is even worse because not only do some items not show up, but in addition most of the links don't work at all. For example, if I use Iceweasel 4.0 to look at the board index of this forum, I can't click on any of the links, not the links in the main sections anyway. If I open up Chrome (that's what I'm using to write this) or Opera, the problem is gone.

What the heck is going on, does anyone know? Is this an Iceweasel bug? Am I missing some package update? I'd hate to have to switch my preferred browser just because this weirdness is going on. At first I thought it was a fluke, specific to a site or two only, but at this point I've seen these rendering issues on about 10 sites ...

Debian Multimedia :: Get Hardware Acceleration (Direct Rendering) Working On System Without Success?

I've been trying to get hardware acceleration (Direct Rendering) working on my system without success. I'm not even sure if my card supports DR or not, my searchs haven't turned up a result for this question. I don't know if its the video card, nvidia packages or bad configurations. Any help with the diagnosis?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Page Rendering - Not Displaying Portions Of Pages Properly ?

Jun 10, 2011

I guess this is a part deux, since I already posted one rendering issue which was eventually resolved ... having to do with the themes of this Debian Forum. Well, I don't know if this is related to that, but yesterday I noticed on another site that my Iceweasel 4.01 is not displaying portions of pages properly. See attached images. Both Chrome & Opera display that page correctly, I've included a screenshot of the same page with Chrome. I have JAVA installed and everything works perfectly fine accross the board on all browsers, except for this "once in a while" issue with Iceweasel. I've noticed this "missing content oddity" on three sites so far (out of 50 or more). No problem with eBay, craigslist, paypal, and other major players.

Open the images with a new tab, then compare both images side by side for best results.

Debian :: Firefox/Iceweasel Sharing Profiles Between Windows And Lenny?

Oct 30, 2010

I'm trying to shift from Windows to Linux I tried Ubuntu, but I was happy with it, so now I'm trying Debian. I installed the version i386 on an amd64. Since I still have to use XP I would like to share my Mozilla profiles. I followed the instruction I found on the web which worked well for Ubuntu/XP, but now I'm not able to get a working configuration on Debian Every time I launch Firefox/Iceweasel I get the message "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." I've tried to fix the problem following the instruction found in [URL] and other websites, but I failed. Firstly I tried with Iceweasel then I installed Firefox, but it didn't make any difference!

Fedora :: Font Rendering Bad Only In Firefox

I'm running Fedora 13 x86_64 on a Dell Precision Workstation with a Dell Flatscreen Monitor. My fonts render well everywhere, using Dejavu fonts, but in Firefox and Epiphany they have these terrible yellow outlines and jagged edges.Has anyone else seen this? I've only noticed it recently (since the upgrade to Fedora 13), but it also happens on a Fedora 12 machine at home.

Ubuntu :: Rendering Of Characters In Firefox?

Jan 29, 2011

I have a weird issue in Firefox on Ubuntu 10.10, and sadly it's a periodic mistake that I don't know how to initiate... Sometime in firefox some of the characters seems not fully rendered, and as I recall it can also happen in menu fonts sometimes. In the attached screen-shot you can see that it's the a character that has the problem - but only for one font type or? But I have seen this with most characters I think - and as stated this happens randomly.For instance right now I looked again in the tab in firefox where I just 5 minutes ago did the screen-shot and now all characters are correct?? I have tried to reload or even restart firefox when it occurs, but this is now guaranty for a solution... When it happens it makes many homepages unreadable

Ubuntu :: Inconsistent Font Rendering In Firefox?

Sep 17, 2010

able to find anything on this particular issue. The problem I'm having is that the contrast ratio of text in firefox seems very inconsistent. For example: if I'm reading an article on NYtimes, from one paragraph to the next it looks like some sentences are in bold-face and others are not. If I refresh the page, it'll be different areas that are or aren't bf. Sometimes they even change (getting darker or lighter) as I'm sitting there reading. I tried to take a screenshot but unfortunately the text all becomes uniform as soon as I hit prt-scr so the image doesn't show the effect.

Another example is viewing my personal favorite forum where threads that I haven't read are in bf as opposed to those I have read which are normal. The problem is that when I do a mouse-over of the bf threads the font rendering becomes more greyed out. It's still bold-face, just not as dark.

A final example is in text-entry boxes. As I'm typing this right now the line I'm on looks normal but the paragraph above seems to go from regular to bold-face from one line to the next. The paragraph above that looks entirely bold-face...

It did occur to me that this could be a monitor issue or even a vid-card issue. But it's definitely not monitor because I can scroll the whole screen and the variation moves with the text... And it's not vid-card because I installed Chrome as a check and it doesn't have the same problem. None of the above symptoms carry over to that application.

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In Lenny?

May 2, 2010

recently installed lenny (5.0.4). I can't get any sound whatsoever (except pc speaker). I had to muck around with vlc to get video working, that works fine but there's still no sound. I have a C-media CMI8738 sound card, I've run alsaconf in root which seems to work fine, I've mucked around with alsamixer (v1.0.16) changing volumes and muting things but haven't had any change. Computer is an AMD Athlon xp2500.

Debian Multimedia :: Lenny Hangs After GDM

Jul 14, 2010

I have a computer that is off the internet. It usually works right since I took great care to make it as 'clean' as possible from outside forces.Lately it just hangs whenever GDM is about to start.How to troubleshoot?

I tried a live CD SystemRescueCD, it works even the desktop environment works. so I e2fsck the partitions of the hard drive okay, memory test/checked the 1.2GBRAM -- passed other than these, I have no clue how to troubleshoot.Oh, I also used an nvidia driver which I forgot how I did it because it was installed almost a year ago.

Debian Multimedia :: Lenny Compatible VLC 1.0.5 - 32 - 64 Bit And Sources

Mar 2, 2010

I had to build it with nls (locales) and the mozilla-plugin disabled, due to the Lenny libc6 causing problems.

Link (about 40 Mb): [url]

Big and Free link: (may disappear): [url]

64-bit debs only (about 9 MB): [url]

I have had reports of the aspect ratio being weird for ATI cards, as well as no full screen, but it works fine in the Virtual Box Lenny, as well as on my Intel graphics.

You will also need the lenny-backports repo, to get some missing or updated libraries. see

You would need to install the vlc-data deb first, then you can install the rest of the debs: (except for the -dbg version, unless you need it) dpkg -i *386.deb

If you have missing dependencies, you get an error=1, so get the missing dependencies with aptitude -f install or apt-get -f install. You may have to manually install the lenny-backports libraries if you have trouble. You actually don't need the -dev, dbg, and most of the other libraries, so you may want to look at what the vlc metapackage needs and install those.

Debian Multimedia :: Installing LibGLEW 32 Bit On 64 Bit Lenny

Mar 3, 2010

I'm running 64-bit Debian lenny, and am trying to run a 32-bit program that requires libGLEW. I've installed libGLEW using apt-get install libglew1.5, but when I try to run the program I get the error: error while loading shared libraries: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

It seems the default install of libGLEW is in 64-bit mode, and the program can't use the 64-bit libraries. It looks like I need to install libGLEW in 32-bit mode, but I've no idea how to do that.

Debian Multimedia :: VLC - No Enque Option On Lenny?

May 18, 2010

I`m using the VLC player available for Lenny. I used VLC in other distributions and it always played mkv`s fine and had an option to have only one instance of VLC running, so it would enque added files. But the Lenny version doesn`t seem to have it and doesn`t play mkv files as smooth as Lennys default player, which is odd.

I`m fine using the inbuilt player for mkv`s but is there an option to have just one instance of vlc? I like to click files and just have them added to the current playlist rather than have them all open in new instances of the program.

I now have a newer vlc installed, with enque and other newer features than the default, thanks to following the advice of and using packages built by stevepusser.

Debian Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Drivers In Lenny?

May 27, 2010

I'm still getting used to the system. I've been able to install a couple of packages like Disk Manager and Firefox, and was able to mount my ntfs drive. I've only learned some basic terminal commands, but I'm managing ok so far. That is until I looked into what was involved in installing the video drivers I need for my Nvidia 8400 GS card. (ouch!) I'm trying to follow the guide here: [URL] but I've run into a snag in the 'Overview' part: "0. Make sure APT has non-free and contrib sources (consult the sources.list(5) man page for help on doing this) " The link provided [URL] is dead. With only a basic understanding (next to none) of what the sources.list is for, I'm unsure how to fulfill step 0.
