After I manually installed multimedia codecs, like w32codecall, I got Linux to play movies and I also got thumbnail previews of them in Dolphin. However, I noticed that recently Dolphin doesn't display my thumbnails anymore. I don't quite recall whether the any video player could use my installed codecs, at least xine works. The only thing that could have caused that is actually the automatic system updates I received. I still have my multimedia codecs installed, but Dolphin doesn't show the movie previews anymore.
I am running Opensuse 11.3, KDE 64 bit. I have a nvidia GeForce 9400 GT graphic card.Somehow Dolphin and Firefox cannot show picture preview.It comes out like this; ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing.
I have some videos I am looking to share and post to a couple of places. I am looking to preview to the potential downloaders the file quality, plus some statistical info. In Windows Media Players Classic, as shown in my example here, you have the length of the video, file size, file name... and in each frame preview you have a time stamp stating at what part of the video the from is from.is there a program in linux that can do this for me? That can generate the same (or maybe more) info automatically?
At some point after one of the many updates I do to my system, I seem to have lost the ability to preview myself on cam. Simply put, software like CamStream and Cheese just give me a black screen when I open it up. So, I cant see how I look on cam and what's in or out of the shot. If I tell Cheese or Camstream to capture a still, there is no problem. In fact, that is the only way I can determine what the camera is seeing of me and my background.
The only "solution" is to either have Cheese takke my pic and determine from there (as just mentioned), or go on a video chat room and have it use my camera to give me a real-time look at what the camera is aimed to. As someone who creates webcam videos for upload, and sometimes needs to move the camera while still live, this is not convenient so I hope to fix it.
Here are the command line outputs Im getting:
Code: ** (cheese:3704): WARNING **: could not generate thumbnail for /home/lixen69y2k/Webcam/2010-08-25-101226.ogv (video/ogg) ** (cheese:3704): WARNING **: Icon 'video-ogg' not present in theme Camstream:
Could not grab image (select timeout): Resource temporarily unavailable.Seems that GUVCview gives me the best articulation of what the problem is. I have both a built-in webcam for my laptop as well as a USB one. Both seem to have this problem so I know its a case of some part of my software being the trouble.
Dolphin crashes when previewing PNG files - with other image files (PS, PDF, JPG, DVI) when you roll the mouse over the file you get a preview pic in the top right corner - when I roll it over a PNG file, it halts for a second then crashes.
Since I upgraded to 11.3 I don't see that the View > Preview mode is broken. Image icons are created, but they all look like the icons in the picture below. When I move the zoom slider the largest sized icons come out fine. Anyone an idea how to solve this problem? Is there any repository that I can use to get more recent versions that should have fixed these bugs? I just noticed that PNG images come out right, so it could be something related to JPG files.
Whenever I go into the folders they're stored in and try to open them. They close so fast, in fact, that it's only after switching over to Konqueror that I found the files simply will not open. VLC/Kaffeine appears to load for a few seconds and then closes again without any indication of a bug or problem - it just doesn't work.
Been trying to sort this out for the last two days now, but I'm a complete simpleton with computers/linux and don't know anything about using the terminal, etc. (I can't even install stuff without using webpins) but now I'm stuck and searching around for people with similar problems really hasn't turned up anything that is familiar or understandable.
Does anybody else have this problem with restretto image viewer that it freezes after enabling the "show thumbnail bar" option? And after that point, it becomes unusable, can't be closed, only by killing, and can't start anymore, it shows only an empty gtk window and freezes again. Even if it is loaded without to show any picture.
my notebook has an external monitor connected with 1280x1024 pixels.
As long as the resolution of the external monitor is set to 1024x768 I can watch video with VLC, mplayer etc.
But once I set its resolution to 1280x1024 all mediaplayer play only sound. This happens on the external screen and on the built-in screen of the notebook. The desktop is extended to the external screen.
When opening nautilus there are no image previews.Only if i watch the image with eye of gnome and than klick thereload button, the pictures are shown. is this a bug or feature?how can i switch this back to the default where image previews areshown when i open a folder without viewing it with eye of gnome?
I am looking for a video editor that will let me open an AVI video and then save individual frames as image files (preferably JPG), I looked through the "Ubuntu Software Center" the only one that I found in there that would do this is "Video Cut" but when I try to open the 600+ meg AVI video I have it closes a moment later.
Anyone know of a video editor that will open a file this big and not crash?
I'm trying to encode a video using only one image during a complete audio file, but a can't find the way to do it. What I need to do is to extend the duration of the frame up to the duration of the audio file. How do I do that with mencoder?
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and my problem is with this one video the preview icon in nautilus will not load for me. It's encoded the same as the other 120 videos on the drive and plays just fine in totem. I copied the video from another drive and the preview icon for the video is present on it. Just seems like it's not even attempting to create a preview icon, is there a way of making it?
I want a video editing software for combining two videos at frame level. I mean, for eg: to show double action at a time in movie. We shoot two characters separately. And then we combine it as a single video with dual role effect. Now, I think you understood my requirement. Plz anyone tell that type of application which suits my needs.
I use Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04, and usually I record my desktop with the program "Record my Desktop", the format of the video is: .ogg, when I had Ubuntu Karmic Koala, I recorded my screen then in kdenlive added audio and effects and all's right, but now i update to Lucid Lynx, and trying to edit my video in Kdenlive and I obtain this screen(I attached my screen), I noticed that the new video that I record after the upgrade of Ubuntu, I can't view the preview with Kdenlive, but with the old record, I can view the preview. And also i noticed that with pitivi, the new program to edit videos of Lucid Lynx, works fine, with new and old recordings, don't have problem.
Hi everybody! I am completely stumped with KDE's Dolphin's preview policy. It started with me realizing that when as much as I mouse over an encrypted file (say, an ODS file created and encrypted with OpenOffice), KDE pops up a password prompt. The culprit identifies itself as kio_thumbnail. This is a feature so apparently useless, I would like to disable it no matter what. I know a work-around: hiding the Information panel seems to work. But I like the information panel. On top of that, the same kio_thumbnail does on occasion decide that my computer is underutilized (it feels like it happens during the idle times). It allocates my entire RAM, all 4 GiB of it, and does something fancy. It doesn't crash, however, and goes away a few minutes after I poke the computer.
I don't want a daemonized thumbnailer, is there a way to disable kio_thumbnail or make it be quiet and do nothing? I tried fooling around with Dolphin. I went into Settings / Configure Dolphin... and
1. Disabled all services, 2. Unchecked everything in General / Previews.
I did the same to Konqueror.
As far as I can tell, this had no effect whatsoever. Dolphin still previews all the files it previewed before, and still tries to preview encrypted files when Information panel is open. I am running unmodified Dolphin 1.4 on KDE 4.4.3, the same ones that came with Slackware 13.1 x64.
I've got a 1920x1080 video I've edited and rendered with Cinelerra, and I'm trying to use ffmpeg to transcode it to something smaller. However, when I use a command like this, for instance:
I inevitably get some weird green band at the bottom of the frame in the converted video. I know that there's some weird pixel stretching going on here, because the NTSC standard for 16:9 is 720x480 with rectangular pixels, and the 1080 version has square pixels, so I'm guessing the green band is an artifact of that process?
I just installed Mythbuntu on my old laptop (lenovo with on board graphics card). I have now the problem that when I connect the TV out to my TV the picture is flickering. It looks like the image is sometimes jumping to the left or right for a fraction of a second. This usually happens when the image is not still, ie I scroll the menue or a movie is playing. I already tried different display settings but that didn't help.
I don't how long is has been happening for (I've just upgraded my old computer, so it is now my faster and better machinig), but Nautilus is failing to create thumbnails for anything other than text files.
I've swapped the settings around to try to trigger changes, but even on "Local only" or "Always" with a 10MB cap then Nautilus won't generate previews for anything other than text files. All images/videos/pdfs/web pages that should have thumbnails generated for them have the "pending" icon but never generate a thumbnail. If, however, I open the file (with Eye of Gnome or Gimp) and refresh the folder then the thumbnail appears for the one file I just opened (so I could go through and preview all images, but I'd really rather not!)
I've tried removing/renaming my .local/share/mime folder in case it was incorrectly handling file types, but that didn't help. I've looked in gconf at the thumbnailer apps, but that appears to be for everything except images. Running "evince-thumbnailer" on its own works fine as well and generates an image. There aren't any related errors in .xsession-errors, and I don't know where else Nautilus logs to (running "nautilus --browser" creates a browser window but then drops back to the command line and doesn't print any output).
I'm using openSUSE 11.2 and the default Gnome, with codecs from Packman. A fairly similar setup on my other machine is thumbnailing perfectly fine.
I am having problems: videos have sound, but no picture.I'm using a Gigabyte motherboard with integrated ATI video, and I've read before that XBMC (and Ubuntu in general) don't like ATI too much. Is there any hope left to make XBMC work?I've tried the following:1. Fresh Ubuntu installation, default ATI drivers. Result: when starting a video, audio is okay, but no video. Also, visibly slow graphics even while navigating XBMC menus
2. Installed ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX driver via System->Hardware drivers. Result: significantly accelerated menu navigation, but no video still. Note: having no problems watching videos via VLC or Totem Movie Player (after downloading proper codecs)3. Fresh Ubuntu installation, then downloaded and installed ATI's proprietary Linux drivers from ATI's site (ati-driver-installer-10-7-x86.x86_64.run). Result: yippee, I see some video, but wait: no color!! (all videos are in sepia-like mode)
4. Followed these instructions to install the unofficial ATI drivers. Result: total failure, XBMC won't even start, says something about the need to have proper hardware OpenGL acceleration.System info:GIGABYTE GA-MA785GMT-UD2H AM3 AMD 785G mobo with ATI Radeon HD 4200 onboard graphicsAMD Phenom II X2 550 processor4 gigs of DDR3 RAM Ubuntu Lucid 32 bit (2.6.32-24-generic-pae)
