Debian Multimedia :: MPlayer No Longer Listed In Apps Menu After System Update

Aug 3, 2010

MPlayer was working just fine last night, but today I'm having problems which may be due to me performing a system update. I noticed that MPlayer was no longer listed in my Applications menu and I no longer had the option of opening videos with it. However, I now had Gnome MPlayer which must have been installed with the update because I never installed it. Whilst going through Synaptic, I found that the MPlayer GUI had been removed, so I re-installed it. However nothing happened when I attempted to open videos with it.

When I tried to use it through the terminal I got the error message:
mplayer: relocation error: mplayer: symbol codec_wav_tags, version LIBAVFORMAT_52 not defined in file with link time reference

I found a bug report on this very problem here [URL]. The conclusion was that the person filing the bug report was using a version of ffmpeg not found in Debian and that he'd need a version of MPlayer built with his version of ffmpeg libs. I'm assuming that this is also the case with me, however I'm not sure how to go about finding a build or simply building a version of MPlayer with whatever version of ffmpeg that I'm using. For reference, I'm using Squeeze.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Logitech Z-5 USB Not Even Listed In The Sound Menu?

Apr 10, 2011

After cheering the Ubuntu Developers team on the great work they did with hardware recognition, I was suddenly stunned by the silence from my USB speakers this afternoon. Although previously correctly recognized and fully functional, after installing several non- audio updates, the sound from my USB speakers ceased.Moreover, this pair of Logitech Z-5 USB speakers aren't even listed on the Sound menu (System > Preferences > Sound) although lsusb lists them correctly. I have an embedded sound adapter to which no speakers are connected. My PC runs on Ubuntu 10.04. What should I do to get the sound through my USB speakers?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dvd Menu Support For Mplayer?

Jul 17, 2011

I am using mplayer with Umplayer/Smplayer as graphic front ends. I have enabled DVD menus by checking the box in Preference > Drives in Umplayer(also tried Smplayer) but there is still no menu when I stick a DVD in the dvd drive, on the other hand the menus show up if I use VLC to play the DVD so it is not the dvd's problem.

I have already installed libdvdnav4.

In ubuntu I noticed that some apps (vlc, tweetdeck, iplayer) dont allow transparency in the system menu. This isn't a massive issue, although I'd like to know if it is possible to enable transparency, and keep the uniform look.I've tried changing the icons within the application, however it often refuses to open afterwards

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get MPlayer To Work With Lirc On Non GUI System

Mar 26, 2010

I'm setting up a gui-less music server so there's no login, and I've tried using mplayer's lirc interface as well as irexec (sending mplayer slave commands to a fifo). But I can't get mplayer to work unless I start either irexec or mplayer from a logged in session. So my S99test is something like:

#irexec -d
#mplayer myfile.mp3

If I use the "mplayer" line, I do hear music at startup, but no lirc control. Yet if I log in and kill the mplayer and rerun S99test as root, all works fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Mplayer-vaapi Working On System?

Jun 30, 2010

I am trying to get mplayer-vaapi working on my system, so I can watch 1080p videos with hardware acceleration (and to remove the tear effect).

Anyway I am having trouble getting VA Api to work correctly. I have extensively google-ed around, and I cannot find a way to fix this problem.

Here is the output for vainfo (the error from vainfo is the same as mplayer-vaapi):

libva: libva version 0.31.1-sds1
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0


but I have found that:

1. The Xlib error shouldn't matter
2. I do have an file in /usr/lib/va/drivers
3. I have installed the latest libva amd64 deb package
4. I have installed the latest xvba amd64 deb package

I am running Lucid on 2.6.34-020634-generic kernel (with a patched fglrx module). I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5800 Series card.

Also before I found the deb package for libva I followed this tutorial to compile it (some things had to be tweaked for it to compile successfully) [URL]. But I did reinstall libva when I found the .deb package.

General :: Programs No Longer Showing In Task Bar - System Running Much Slower After Update

Apr 26, 2011

using mint 10, now after updates my system is barely working. The programs were no longer showing in the task bar, and the system was running much slower.


This repeated over and over again. My temperature was never to high 40-55, and I found a suggestion to update my kernel to 2.6.37-020637. After doing so there is no longer the thermal limit exceeded error but the computer is still running poorly. The system is slow and again no programs are showing up in the task bar when open.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gnome Mplayer Freezes System / Stop It To Do So?

Jul 12, 2011

Lubuntu 11.04 on laptop (PIII ATI Rage Mobility). Playing a WMV or MPEG file, system freezes when playback ends. I have not tried any other formats.

I looked at mplayer Preferences

In the Player tab, "Video Output" was blank - I set it to "x11"

This corrected the freeze problem, at least the first time that I tried it. However, it did not seem to persist through multiple plays of the MPEG file, whether or not accompanied by an mplayer quit and rerun or a reboot, even though I did not change the parameters. I tried setting vo=x11 in the etc/mplayer/config file, but that did not help. It is sporadic. It will work a few times with the MPEG file, then hang, for no apparent reason. One thing it does seem to do consistently is hang on the WMV file, regardless of the vo setting, and on both files, when vo is not specified (what I started with). This is a time-consuming task, with a reboot on every failure, and I have run out of ideas on what to try next. When it hangs on the MPEG file I noticed that the elapsed time ends up at 20 sec, even though the video total time is 16 sec. When it doesn't hang, the elpased time goes to 20 sec, then returns to 16 sec.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Is No Longer Working After Update

Dec 5, 2010

I am running 10.10 on a 21.5 inch imac. I just ran some updates and rebooted, turned on rhythmbox to play some tunes and realized there is no sound. Tried ....., no yield. Tried a different user account still no sound. SO I rebooted into osx and I have sound. Its therefore a software issue for sure. I plugged in headphones and changed to the appropriate output in the settings manager, sound came out, but out of phase. What going on here? any ideas would be awesome.

Debian :: Scanner No Longer Recognized After Update

Nov 30, 2015

I am running Wheezy 7.9 32 bit, with the kernel Linux 3.2.0-4-686-pae, and Gnome 3.4.2 on an Intel Pentium CPU G3420 @ 3.2 GHz. I installed a new printer in August, an HP Officejet 7612 all-in-one printer/scanner/copier, and it worked perfectly as both a printer and a scanner first time, despite not being listed on the supported list in SANE. Two weeks ago, I got a general software update notification, and did the update. Now the scanner is not recognised. The printer still works fine as a printer, but when using Simple-scan, I get the error message "No scanners detected. Please check your scanner is connected and powered on". I have had a look round on Google, and all the suggestions made do not work.

I tried the suggestion to add myself to the scanner users list on my PC which made no difference (even though the scanner previously worked without my being added to the scanner users list).

I have deleted the printer and re-installed it using CUPS, but that still has no effect. I tried re-installing HPLIP also to no avail, and I have now lost the toolbox on the drop down menu under <Applications> <Accessories> <HP Toolbox>, as when I click on it, nothing happens.

It would seem that something in the update has messed up Simple-scan. Looking at the dpkg log (is this the right thing to look at?) for the date of the update, I cannot find anything which directly involved SANE, so I think that it might be something else which has affected SANE. How I can find out which update did the damage? I don't normally do anything except accept recommended updates, so I am a bit lost as to what to do.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC No Longer Working After Update - Cannot Load Module

May 15, 2010

Since my latest update to Ubuntu Lucid, VLC is no longer working. When starting VLC, I get an impractical dark interface that doesn't response to any command.
vlc -v gives this output:

It looks like a Qt4 problem, I have installed Qt4 with all possible dependencies, re-installed vlc several times but no effect! cvlc as proposed doesn't react.

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze MPlayer Do Not Work

Jun 17, 2011

I use a net install CD to install the Debian 6.0.1(squeeze). After installation of gnome, I use apt install the mplayer. But when I use the mplayer open a avi file, it failed. The mplayer don't crash but give the following instruction:

Mplayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: filter_video
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.

It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc version. If you thin it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. [This binary of MPlayer in Debian is currently compiled with '--enable-debug'; the debugging symbols are in the package 'mplayer-dbg'.] I don't know why this happen, because all the package is installed with apt.

Debian Multimedia :: Mplayer And Full Screen

Sep 1, 2011

I installed debian 6.0 and have a problem with mplayer running in fullscreen/maximised window. Basically whenever I want to play a film in full screen or maximised window the view/film area remains a small rectangle and there's a big black area around that makes up the full screen.I'm running a nouveau driver and the video settings in mplayer are set to xv ( I also tried gl).

That's what happen when I run mplayer from the command line (eg. mplayer film.avi), which is my preferred method. When I want to play a film by opening it from a file browser, it starts mplayer but there's no video at all, just the sound.

Debian Configuration :: 32 Bit Apps On Wine Cannot See System Fonts

Oct 23, 2015

I've just installed Debian 8.2 KDE 64bit, installed wine, and found that a 32-bit Windows program (Agent newsreader) could not see the linux system fonts. (This worked fine on Kubuntu 14.04)

Since this is the first time that I've installed Debian, I'm not sure if I'm missing something obvious or if this is an actual bug.

Steps to reproduce:
Fresh install of Debian 8.2 KDE 64bit.
apt-get install wine
wine wordpad # this is a small word-processor for wine that is supplied with wine
menu -> format -> font
all linux fonts are visible -- so far so good

Because I want to use a 32bit program, I now have to do this, I understand:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install wine-bin:i386

But after that,if I run "wine wordpad" and look at the fonts, all the linux system fonts are gone. The only fonts visible are the nine that are built into wine (Courier, Fixedsys, Marlett etc..) So installing the i386 wine support seems to have broken something.
