OpenSUSE Multimedia :: SLED11 - Restricted Format Message For DVDs

Jun 27, 2009

I have my original test version of sled11 which I installed when it was first released. I managed to install the required files for multimedia formats and everything works fine. The system has updated as updates have been released via the evaluation update code quite happily. I liked it and decided to get a sled11 license and install on my main workstation. About a month has passed since the test install and my fresh licensed install and I accepted all the updates on install. When I install the multimedia apps, only kaffeine will read multimedia dvds. Nautilus, brasero and totem say it is a restricted format and refuse to read it. What to look for?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Multi Media Restricted Format Installation For 11.3

Nov 1, 2010

After having followed the guide in the link below

Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide

I tried to reproduce MP3 files on video like .AVI or MP4 and everything was fine.Every program and library seems that has been installed correctly.

But when I checked , following the instructions in the link, I found different results. I can understand that the guide has been written a long time ago and some packages are not available anymore in the repository, but I think there are too many differences.

This is what I got:


And I got the following list

Another differerence that I have noticed is: when I was listening a MP3 file using Amarok the music was quite clear and loud, but when I reproduce a MP4 or MP3 video file using VLC I could bearily hear something and the volume was at its maximum. How can it be ?

Debian Multimedia :: Preferred Format To Rip DVDs To?

Apr 27, 2011

Handbrake defaults to .mp4 but can also rip to .mkv. I'm not sure which to use. I like to rip CDs to .flac if that gives you any idea of what I'm trying to achieve.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Install Restricted Multimedia Codecs?

Mar 7, 2010

I was using THIS guide to install restricted multimedia codecs. I got to the part where I had to switch system packages to the Packman packages. It came up with a number of dependency errors. I then had a stupid moment and told it to ignore the dependencies and break the applications. Now Xine won't even start, and Amarok seems to have disappeared on my computer. Oh and I also got a bunch of weird dependency problems when I was trying to install some of the packages from Packman too as listed on the guide. I also told it to ignore them when it couldn't find the dependencies. I'm scared I fudged multimedia up so badly I would have to do a clean install to get it back. BTW, I'm running openSUSE 11.2. I don't know if there are other specifications that matter.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Play DVDs - Multimedia RPMs Are Installed

Aug 9, 2011

Normally I find everything I need either in the documentation or forum, but it's been months, and this time I'm stumped. I'm posting the results of my latest tests, so I'm really sorry about the length of this post.

I can't play DVDs unless they've been burned by myself or a friend. I had no problems until around the beginning of April. I was running 11.2 on both my laptop and desktop. I think an update changed something. This was before 11.2 was officially retired a week or so later. I wanted to upgrade to 11.4 anyway, so I began with my laptop. During installation I wiped everything from my hard disk by creating new partitions and formatting them. After installation I installed the multimedia packages using one-click (, not, although I did read what they said). I know one-click is not ideal, but I was curious. The result was that I still couldn't play DVDs.

I did a fresh installation, just to be on the safe side. This time I installed the packages according to Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide by caf4926. But I still couldn't play DVDs, so I went through the thread Check your multimedia problem in ten steps. Then I ran mmcheck (v2.35). I tried a few times, experimented, and in the end did another fresh install.

In the meantime, on my desktop, which still has 11.2 on it, I found the file which had been changed and changed it back, so I could play DVDs on it again. It was in /etc/udev/rules.d/, 70-persistent-cd.rules. This does not appear to be the problem in 11.4 on my laptop.

I have again installed the packages according to the multimedia installation guide, and done the ten-step check and run mmcheck and these are the results as they stand:

I couldn't find a package called mplayerplug-in. I used zypper to look for it.

I tried installing the totem packages in a previous installation, but they didn't make a difference, so I left them out this time.

I deinstalled my jdk, but it doesn't seem to have made a difference, except that I get an error notification everytime I want to use LibreOffice. And I need it, so I'm putting it back soon.

So, these are my packages:

And this is what happens when I try to play a DVD using Kaffeine (since I don't an error message except from Kaffeine, and I've forgotten where my logs are):

And then comes Read error from: Error reading from DVD over the GUI.

And nothing else happens... I get no feedback from smplayer whatsoever. It opens, trys to read the DVD, and sits there. Even on the console.

Ubuntu :: Download The Restricted Extras From The Software Center - Get An Error Message

Aug 7, 2010

When I attempt to download the restricted extras from the software center, I get the following error message:

CD/DVD 'Ubuntu 10.04 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release amd64 (20100427.1)' is required,Please insert the above CD/DVD into the drive '/cdrom/' to install software packages from the medium.

I have 2 Ubuntu CDs, the alternate x64 and the desktop x86. I've inserted both and still gave me the same error. The computer is running the alternate x64 version. I've already reinstalled this computer 4 times, and it NEVER asked me for the CD. Why would it ask for it now? Not only that it asks for a CD I don't have.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine And KsCD Won't Play CDs Or DVDs

Nov 26, 2009

I have recently installed 11.2. I am having some sound woes. Vlc plays CDs and DVDs but Kaffeine won't. KsCD won't play CDs. When I try to use Kaffeine to play a CD I get:

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [cdda:/]
Opening kaffeine in the terminal gives:
user@linux-kxg1:~> kaffeine
user@linux-kxg1:~> CDROMREADTOCHDR: No medium found
CDROMREADTOCHDR: No medium found

When I try to use Kaffeine to play a DVD I get:

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd:/]

Do I have to add anything to /etc/fstab? /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd are pointing to /dev/sr0, but these apps are not seeing the device.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Blank CDROM And DVDs No Longer Recognized

Mar 19, 2010

11.2, KDE4, GNU/Linux, latest updates

Weird, but suddenly just recently my system stopped 'seeing' any blank media. I have burned all sorts till now without problems, from K3B, Lemonrip, Handbrake, growisoft on the CLI, etc. Some errant update, perhaps?

I have done some digging ... added my user to cdrom, added an entry in fstab (K3B didn't like it so I deleted it), wodim -scanbus tell me I have '1,0,0 100) 'Optiarc ' 'BD ROM BC-5500S ' '1.03' Removable CD-ROM' ...

It can, however, read written Cds and DVDs without problems.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Watch A .mkv File In 720p Format?

Apr 26, 2011

Ran into something weird. I was trying to watch a .mkv file in 720p format last night in VLC. Now, for about 10 minutes everything is fine and then the sound just stops. Video play is fine, but audio just cuts out. These hasn't happened with anything else other than this .mkv file. Would the fact I'm running gnome 3 using the open source drivers on my ati 5850 have anything to do with this? Or maybe something else? Anyone run into an issue like this?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Converting A 3gp Video File Into A Different Format?

Jun 19, 2011

Can I ask for some advice in converting a video (from my phone) which is a 3gp file into something more universal. I use audokonverter for audio files and this gives me a menu right-click option to convert a song from (say) wav to mp3. Is there an equivalent for videos? I am using opensuse 11.4 64 bit and have mplayer, xine and vlc installed plus the necessary codecs. Or is it simpler to use ffmpeg in a c/l environment

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Lost Amongst The Video Format Maze?

Aug 28, 2011

On inspection I find that my collection of video files is a mixture of .flv and .mp4 formats. The latter play OK on my A110 network media player but the latter do not. There is no sound from either but I think that is another problem as VLC works well on all of them.

My question assuming I cannot get the media player to play .flv files is should I convert to mp4 and will the HD files suffer as a result? If it is OK to convert, which program to use. My system is openSUSE 11.4 with KDE desktop.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skipping Through Wma Files Even With Restricted Formats Installed?

Nov 23, 2010

I can play WMAs with MPlayer but when I try to skip forward a few minutes it plays for a split second, and then plays at another random part of the video making it impossible to play a WMA from anywhere but the beginning.

mplayer -demuxer lavf ccent01.wmv.The above command opens the video but there is no menubar, scroll bar, or any reaction to right click although strangely scrolling my mouse wheel seems to randomly skip through the video. In VLC when trying to play the same file I get the error:

No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "wmas". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this. No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "MSS2". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.After converting the .wma file to .mpg, and also .avi using a command similar to:

Code: mencoder ccent01.wmv -ofps 23.976 -ovc lavc -oac copy -o ccent01.mpg. There is no change playing the file with mplayer and in VLC it now only gives one error: Code: No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "wmas". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this. I'm preparing for a Cisco exam later in the week and would like to spend tomorrow watching hours of computer based training videos but would rather not have to do it in Windows. Already tried using Media Player Classic in WINE but it crashed. Is there a workaround? Oh and I already have ubuntu-restricted-extras installed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Movie Player Broken After Install Restricted Extras?

May 2, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 today and all was working well. I tried playing a video and was prompted to install plugins which worked fine. I then installed Open Shot, Lame and Restricted extras and now when I try to open a video (WMV, AVI, FLV etc) all I get is a prompt to search for suitable Plugin. When I click on search another prompt tells me No packages with the requested plugins were found followed by the name of the requested DivX MPEG-4 Version 5 decoder or Windows Media Video 9 decoder etc.Anybody any ideas how to sort this. I already reinstalled 11.04 from scratch as I had the same problem yesterday. I never had an issue like this before and been using Ubuntu for years.
