Debian Multimedia :: Playing From ISO - Correct Menu Settings
Jul 17, 2010
I have some DVD's that I've saved to my comp as an ISO, in Ubuntu they would play fine in Movie Player or VLC, but I've just tried to play one on Debain Lenny and I have the following issues.
Will play the video but wont bring up the main menu so that I can select which episode that I want. It won't even skip to the next one, it just starts playing the first.
So I then though I'd down the trusted ol' VLC. VLC brings up the main menu but I can't select any thing. It just sits there and playing the menu screen for a bit and my mouse clicks seem to have know effect (except double clicking to change to full screen). Then it starts playing the first one, if I try to skip it goes back to the main menu and starts all over again.
This particular issue I sometimes had in Ubuntu with Movie Player (depending on the ISO) but VLC would still play it fine.
Just got VLC to run the menu correctly by doing the following:
File => Open Capture Device => File Tab => Browse to the file, select it. => Click OK.
I don't really want to have to do this every time I want to watch a video. Does any one know of a setting that will do this when ever I click on the ISO to play it?
I have moved over to Ubuntu 10.04 from vista.Got only one slight problem- the media I am downloading is not playing with the correct colours. As far as I know all the codecs are installed.I have done a screen shot to explain because I don't know what isn't working. [URL]...
I've got openSUSE 11.2 installed. Works quite well in general.Today I tried using my microphone for the first time but had no success. I tried to playing with volume settings but to no avail.I recording something with arecord -f cd test.wavand tried playing it back with aplay test.wavbut got nothing.Then I thought I'd look at my sound card configuration. I selected the "Configure your sound card" from the start menu. And to my astonishment no card has been configured (I was surprised because I am able to hear sounds, play music, etc.).Anyway, I tried configuring my card. I selected Creative Labs | XFi, clicked through the menus, and eventually I got an error:
"The kernel module for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters"Also, the command dmesg | grep soundgives me this[ 35.179567] ALSA /usr/src/packages/BUILD/kernel-desktop-126.96.36.199/linux-2.6.31/sound/pci/ctxfi/ctatc.c:1265: ctxfi: chip 20K1 model Unknown (1102:1003) is found
FINALLY got my personal server up and running again after my GPU's fan died. i rigged a new fan/heatsink on it but i can't seem to get the resolution correct. nvidia-settings (version 195.36.31) says 1280x960 but i have to pan around the entire desktop (like having a huge image zoomed in on a small screen).
VLC used to work fine for me. I ran a DVD in Movie Player and somehow that seems to have broken VLC. Now neither of them work. Starting VLC in the terminal I get this error when trying to read a DVD: [URL]
when I use mpd with pulseaudio, I get no sound but clients appear to be playing (ncmpcpp and gmpc). Other players such as vlc or mplayer work just fine.If I go under the mixer, I get "no application is currently playing or recording audio" under the "Applications" tab when playing through mpd. In contrast, when I'm using mplayer or vlc, both show up in that tab. It behaves as though pulse is simply not configured to work with mpd.
I just set up my dad's pc with Debian Sqeeze. It runs perfectly fine and after trying a lot of distro's Debian is the only one that will not crash or freeze up X. Now we're forced to using my own 17" monitor instead of his 19" wide screen since the max res is 1280 x 1024 in Sqeeze. What he needs is 1360 x 768. I found out in the wiki that xorg.conf needs to be edited. Since the file does not exist it needs to be created by running "Xorg -configure" in tty after stopping GDM. when running the "Xorg -configure" command this is the output;
" vmware: Please ignore above "FATAL: Module vmwgfx bot found." (++) Using config file: "/root/xorg.conf.new" (==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d" Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices. Configuration failed. "
It's an Intel Sandy Bridge integrated graphics chip. I've tried running "Xorg:1 -configure" as mentioned in a forum but that simply gives me a "unknown command" answer.
I am trying to setup a media server running Debian 7.8 and the minidlna 1.0.24. My TV is a Toshiba 50L7300UC and can play music and show images via the DLNA. It will play .mkv videos too, but when I try to play an .mp4 video it says "Unsupported file". If I put the same .mp4 video onto a USB and plug that into the TV, the TV plays it no problem.
When testing streaming to my phone, everything works (music, pictures, MKV and MP4 videos).
After hours of googleing I'm stumped.When MPD is playing audio, I cannot play audio in another app (ie Totem/VLC).MPD runs under the mpd user. Alsa config is default (as far as I can tell, it configures itself automatically now). System is squeeze, up to date.
I have just installed Debian 188.8.131.52 X86_64. I have enabled the Debian-Multimedia repository, and I have installed gstreamer base, good, bad and ugly plugins, and w64codecs too. Now I want to play MOV files using totem, it says it needs "MPEG-4 Video decoder" to play the file. When I press search, it finds no results. what other packages do I need to play MOV files?
I'm on Debian Wheezy using Shotwell 0.12.3. I have a bunch of .MOV videos that I want to import to Shotwell. I choose import from folder and select copy pictures. The import proceeds and shotwell tells med the .MOV (and some .jpg:s) are imported. The pictures are imported with no problem and placed in an event 2014-10-19 as expected. But videos are placed in an event dated 2004-01-01 and not in 2014-10-19 where they belong. Obviously, Shotwell does not use the files last edit date. I though maybe there was some bad dates in the metadata and opened the files in both Totem and VLC player but concluded there is no such metadata available (as far as I can tell).So how does Shotwell determine the date for .MOV files? Where does 2004-01-01 come from? Seems random.
Then, I tried dragging all movies in Shotwell to the event where it really belongs. That is, where the recently imported photos got placed 2014-10-19. But instead of the videos beeing moved into that correct event, now all photos appears in the 2004-01-01 event.Undo that last step and close Shotwell. Then, instead I manually (in nautilus) copy the .mov files to the 2014-10-19 folder where the picures resides. Open Shotwell again which detects something happened and starts import the videos again. Unfortunatley they still show up in the 2004-01-01 event
Another wierd thing is if I manually (in nautilus) move the Shotwell 2004-01-01 folder away from the Pictures folder (out of reach for Shotwell). Then when I re-open Shotwell the event does not appear anymore - as expected. But If I try to once again import the videos, Shotwell tells me all videos are duplicates and does not import them!?! In other words, manually removing a folder from Shotwell mess up the database. And that database is obviously not used to populate the events tree in the gui.How do I get my video to appear in the correct event? Alternatively; is there a photo/video library in Debian that actually works?
Set up new server using RH 2.6.9-42.ELsmp on an old HP G4 server. But can't get network to work, can't ping any host, not even my gateway.
Verified cable by plugin a different pc on it, using same network ip address, etc, it worked fine, could ping gateway and other hosts on same segment. Are there any other files I could check to verify network card on server is good? it was working when it was configured as a windows server.
I went to mozilla, installed the tar ball package into /opt/, then double clicked on the shell script named firefox inside the /opt/firefox folder.I go to a few sites that stream videos kind of in a way YouTube does as well. So when I go to play the file which is typically in a jwplayer. Firefox thinks I am trying to open to save the file? It attempts to play the video inside dragonplayer, I just want it to run the video. I have also uninstsalled IceWeasel, running KDE shell. x64.
When I try to play any music or movie file over my network....VLC or any other player gives me errors. I don't have any problems when I copy movie files directly to my hard drive from my network. This is on Debian 8 if that information is of any relevance here...
Here is the error I am faced with...
Code: Select allYour input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'smb://gfstorage01/wolf/Torent%20Downloads/Olympus%20Has%20Fallen%20(2013)%20%5B1080p%5D/Olympus.Has.Fallen.2013.1080p.BluRay.x264.YIFY.mp4'. Check the log for details.
I am using chrome Version 50.0.2661.75 (64-bit) running on Debian (Gnome).
I am having the following problem, since yesterday every time I want to play a video (for ex [URL]watch?v=UF8uR6Z6KLc) The music, logo in the video and functions work but the video doesn't play. I reinstalled Chrome, clean all the data, disable all the plugins, I tried as incognito and several other options and it doesn't work, before yesterday it was working (yesterday I updated all Debians packages).
I'm using Fedora 15. For some reason, my computer is booting up graphically. I do not have video drivers for a graphical setup apparently now that Gnome is getting more advanced, so I really need to restore to a CLI. I see /etc/inittab is now deprecated thanks to systemd. The instructions say the following:
Code: # Ctrl-Alt-Delete is handled by /etc/systemd/system/ctrl-alt-del.target # systemd uses 'targets' instead of runlevels. By default, there are two main targets: # multi-user.target: analogous to runlevel 3 # graphical.target: analogous to runlevel 5 To set a default target, run: # ln -s /lib/systemd/system/<target name>.target /etc/systemd/system/default.target
And that's exactly what I have set up! Code: [root@server system]# pwd /etc/systemd/system [root@server system]# ls -la total 20 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 May 31 10:41 default.target -> /lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target
Why is this machine starting up graphically? I even removed the symlink and recreated it... but that obviously isn't the issue here.
I have tried all the ways possible by changing settings in BIOS, changed the ROM, even the hard disk but nothing worked to install red hat 5 in my system. I tried to install in my laptop and it was done but not in my desktop. I m using HP dc7900 convertible minitower.
Iam pretty new to Linux.I installed fedora 10 on my pc recently.I wanted to add a program to the startup menu but I cant find Preferences menu in the Settings menu. Iam writing to this form after a lot of googling.Hope I can find some answer here
I have a Dell laptop and have multi-media buttons, some of which control the audio volume. But once a game is running like Sauerbraten, I cannot control the volume. The controls within the game are relative to the master volume, so if the volume is too low, I have to exit the game to adjust it.
i'm using debian wheezy and whenever i'm playing a webm video, typically on videos, totem and mplayer can't play video. the video just freezes. (i assume because they both use gstreamer.) when i try to use vlc when those 2 aren't working, the video does play but there is no sound.
I am running debian linux wheezy, and recently, all of a sudden, all videos in my iceweasel browser have been refusing to play videos of any kind at full volume. I am, however, able to download the video and play it at full volume on vlc player or sytem video player.Why iceweasel is acting this way?
I installed avant-window-navigator and followed these instructions to remove gnome-panel from startup: URL...However I have since uninstalled AWN and now cannot get gnome-panel to load at startup.I think I have put my settings back where they should be -- looking at them in gconf-editor:
1. desktop > gnome > session, the required_components_list is [windowmanager,filemanager,panel]
2. desktop > gnome > session > required_components_list, the panel value is "gnome-panel"
Yet gnome-panel does not load at startup. Any ideas why?Clarification: I can get gnome-panel to load by listing it under Startup Applications, but I am curious why it won't load via the gconf settings.
I have 2 10.04 computers and one win 7 and one vista computer: The win computers can see each other and the ubuntu computers, but the ubuntu computers cannot see each other or the win machines. The ubuntu computers connect to the internet fine and can ping each other. I cannot find settings to correct.
