I preface this by saying that all other forms of CDs and DVDs work perfectly in this machine - the problem relates exclusively to Audio CDs, either burnt or bought.
When I put and Audio CD in the drive, the mounting process starts, takes longer than usual, and during this process, the desktop icons flash off then back on again, then the CD mounts and I get an icon on the desktop.
If I right-click and select Open, the desktop icons flash off and on again, and nothing else happens.
If I right-click and select Open with Rhythmbox, the same thing happens - desktop icons flash off and on, and nothing else happens. Rhthymbox is not listed in the active processes either.
If I open Movie Player, and click on Movie in the menu, the Play disc 'Audio disc' option is greyed out.
If Rhythmbox is running, and I insert an Audio CD in the drive, Rhythmbox crashes and won't start again until I remove the Audio CD, then all is well again.
When I select Eject to remove the Audio CD, the desktop icons flash off and on again, then the CD ejects.
just updated to lucid and i went to install medibuntu and following the instructions on this page [URL] just like i did in Karmic but after i have done everything that i had to do in Karmic to get it to work i tried to play a dvd in totem and it pops up and says
The required software to play this file is not installed. You need to install suitable plugins to play media files. Do you want to search for a plugin that supports the selected file?
The search will also include software which is not officially supported.
No packages with the requested plugins found
The requested plugins are: DVD subpicture decoder
I click ok and then the dvd starts to play and says internal data flow error
I went to the record store a couple of days ago and bought some CDs. I was able to pop in the first one and rip it no problem. Then, I put in a different CD and I have been greeted with all sorts of nothing. I put the original CD back in and I get nothing. Some example error messages....
When I open Sound Juicer, I am told: "Sound Juicer could not read the track listing on this CD. Reason: Cannot access CD: The specified location is not mounted"
When I open Kaffeine: "Cannot find input plugin for MRL [cdda:/]"
When I try to view the disc in dolphin:"Device does not have read permissions for this account. Check the read permissions on the device."
In 10.04 lucid my SONY CRX 140E drive reads data CDs but does not even read and audio CDs. This was not the case in Hardy and I dual boot and just checked in Windows and audio CDs are no problem there.
I want to listen to this audio file: [URL] but my real player 220.127.116.1128 gold desn play it, it says that there is a codec 28_8 missing, I go to relaplayer page, download the last release available for linux systems, but the message is the same : audio codec missing and doesn't play the audio.
I havev tried to play the audio with smplayer (not luck), vlc can play the audio but the pause button doesn't work so I have to listen the entire audio all the time I stop it playing. Is there any audio player capable od reproducing in the proper way this audio in ubuntu? No one of my video players totem, smplayer, realplayer or vlc are capable of playing this video: [URL]
dell inspiron e1505 3.2 gb ram 1.86 ghz intel core duo ati x1400 gfx opensuse 11.4 kde 32 bit.
okay, here are the details: can't play any audio with amarok when desktop effects are enabled because the minute a window is moved, it will distort the audio. even when disabling desktop effects, some applications still cause this. can't play videos videos even with desktop effects disabled because of the same reason.
i just switched from ubuntu and when i ran version 11.04, i had to disable kms to do anything. i tried on opensuse 11.4 and the audio was flawless but the gfx went all to hell.
How to go about in this situation with a 64-bit version of Lucid, and XenApp? Citrix only has 32-bit packages available on their web, and previously with Karmic, you just added some 32-bit libs, and it would work. But now the "GDebi Pack*ager Installer" refuses to do the install, since this is a 32-bit package, and throws you this error: "Error: Wrong architecture 'i386'". Anyone out there that has managed to find a workaround to install this?
I've just upgraded to 64-bit Lucid and then tried to access the BBC iplayer. I got a message saying I needed a newer version of Flash, so I followed the link provided to the Adobe web site. However, there doesn't seem to be a 64-bit version available from there.
I'm sure I'm not the first person to have had this problem, but I couldn't find an obvious thread on it among the many flash-related ones, so how do I get a recent version of Flash installed in 64-bit Ubuntu 10.04? Have Adobe stopped creating 64-bit versions, or do they just not do a good job of identifying the architecture?
I've been having problems with the Songbird client that we normally download from repositories. It is slow, unstable, and crashes a lot. So I finally figured out that if you download the latest developer version, it is fast, stable, and hasnt crashed yet! The only downside is not all plugins are compatible, but it is still awesome to use, its my favorite audio player in Ubuntu. [URL]
I am going to upgrade from Lucid 32-bit to Lucid 64-bit, and I have some questions as to what I need to do. My system is a dual boot of XP and Lucid, but I only use XP rarely nowadays. I know I have to do a clean install, so here goes. Do I have to blow away my current install of Lucid? If the answer to (1) is yes, what about Grub? How do I get a list of my currently installed applications?
Currently Lucid is on one partition. I have a Clonezilla copy of the file system. Can I restore the /home directory from that copy once I have installed the 64-bit system? If I decide to make /home a separate partition, are there any good rules of thumb about how much space to allocate to the various partitions? Are there any other directories or files I should consider copying from the Clonezilla copy?
The current libsasl package on 64bit Lucid is libsasl2-2 (2.1.23). However when I was installing Scalix, it needed 32bit libsasl2 which is 2.1.22 or something old. Although I can download 32bit libsasl2 package from web, it requires a lot of other libs and some of them are not available.So my question is: is it possible to install an old 32bit package on Lucid 64bit? Or are there other ways to solve the problem without installation of new packages?
I have a project to run simultaneously up to 8 video streams, from a pool of about 100 multicast cameras, and display them on 4 monitors. The PC I am using is a brand-new dual CPU 4-core Intel Xeon E5620 2.40GHz, Intel S5520SCR motherboard, 8GB memory and nvidia Quadro NVS 450 graphics. It's running Fedora 14 64-bit and outputs on 2x2 LCD monitors using Xinerama. So far, so good.
Playing a single video stream from any camera works fine. The problem is that, when I open a 2nd media player window with the purpose of playing other camera, all those two video windows play a single stream. It doesn't matter which camera stream I opened first, as soon as I open a 2nd stream, both windows show the same stream (either the first, or the second, at what seems to be a random choice). Further, a 3rd or a 4th video window will also play the same stream. In other words, one stream sort of "contaminates" all the other streaming windows to play that particular stream only. The problem remains the same even when the following changes are applied:
- graphics driver: nvidia or nouveau; - video player: vlc or mplayer; - number of active monitors: 4, 2 or 1.
I am really puzzled because, on the same computer, Windows XP SP3 32-bit runs beautiful. I can smoothly play up to 12 video streams and some computer applications, simultaneously. I cannot believe that an obsolete OS such as Windows XP can outperform by a long shot Fedora 14 64-bit in video streaming projects. Just doesn't make sense.
Note: I have also tested Windows 7 64-bit, it also runs multiple video streams in parallel without any problems, but Win 7 has issues that XP is free of (such as graphics output glitching every few seconds).
I was wondering what most xubuntu users use to play audio CDs in XFCE. My wife's laptop runs XFCE, and I had a time this last weekend getting it to actually play a CD correctly.It had been configured to load CDs in "listen" audio player, but as far as I can tell listen doesn't even play CD audio. There was nothing in the menu that allowed loading a disc.I tried setting it to Totem, which worked ok until the first track ended. It then stopped, and there was no way to make it continue and play the second track, or get a track listing. Odd, since it has an option for audio CD in the menu.Next I tried mplayer, which worked for a while, but had to be started from the command line since I couldn't get a disc to load from the GUI. After a couple of attempts at this, mplayer locked up the whole desktop.
Next I tried VLC, since it usually sweeps in and saves the day when all else fails. Aside from the annoyance of having to make about six to eight clicks to get an audio CD playing, it did work except that the audio skipped badly and after a few minutes it just died and wouldn't play any more.I finally found a program that worked: KSCD. It's a KDE application designed solely for the purpose of playing audio CDs, and it worked flawlessly.I don't have a problem running KDE apps on XFCE if I have to, but I just think it's odd I had so much trouble getting a program that would reliably do something so straightforward and standard, and wondered if I'd missed something obvious that would have been a better solution.
For some reason in Ubuntu 9.10 my DVD burner will not mount with an audio CD in it (as in, it won't read any audio CDs). I have been able to run DVDs, data discs, and even burnt a few discs - it just will not read an audio CD.
I was having a terrible time playing some WMV files and I finally got it working this way: Based on this: [URL]
Step 1 Add the Medibuntu repositories to sources Code: gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list by adding this at the bottom of the file then saving
Code: #medibuntu repositories deb [URL] lucid free non-free
Step 2 Update for that change to take effect Code: sudo apt-get update
Step 3 Install the w32codecs [you won't find it if Medibuntu repositories are not in place] Code: sudo apt-get install w32codecs Step 4 Install Kplayer [so far the only player I can get to work for WMV files]
Can anyone tell me how to play dual audio mkv in Ubuntu??I tried Mediaplayer,but it plays only the english audio and not the dubbed audio?? Is this any small settings issue or do i need an different player to play such file?
