Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play The Embeded Video

Sep 8, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 - Firefox 3.6.8 I have all the packages installed that I need because every other video I try plays fine. The one that won't work for me is on a friends site - I'm pretty sure it's embeded ( whatever that means ). When I try to play it, I get audio, but no video. If I click where it says Vimeo on the lower right side it plays from there. I do know that it plays "as is" in Windows. Just wondering what's going on. Here it is to take a look at - [URL]

Fedora :: 11 Multimedia - Video Players Doesn't Play Video - Show Only Black Window And Play Audio

Aug 23, 2009

To get multimedia working, or explain what I'm doing wrong.

The problem is that none of the video players doesn't play video, they show only black window and play audio.

I have Fedora 11 Leonidas, fully up-to-date.

I have installed rpmfusion and livna repository.

I have installed following packages:

When I try to play video with totem, it doesn't output any error, but just doesn't play video.
with mplayer:

xine and kaffeine just say:


I tried several different files, which works perfectly in windows and ubuntu.

I installed windows binary codecs for mplayer to /usr/lib/codec/

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Iplayer Video - Clicking The Play Button Does Nothing

Feb 28, 2010

Anyone else struggling to play iplayer video? I've got the proprietary Flash plugin, which means it's probably not this "SWF Authentication" thing that there's been so much talk about.

I've rebooted, tried all sorts of tinkering, it loads the applet (I can see that Flash is loading OK because other things work, and right clicking on the applet gives the Flash menu)

However, clicking the play button does nothing.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 9.10 Video Does Not Play?

Feb 13, 2010

family member's PC, and ever since the upgrade to 9.10, no video files play.

All formats (AVI, MPG, MP4) do not work. When attempting to use MPlayer, VLC, Kaffine and KMPlayer. The file opens, then the program immediately closes.

Another issue is that online video's are very jerky. Before the upgrade, all of these issues did not exist.

Any thoughts or idea's on where to look? I have already tried re-installing the codec's via the restricted extra's package, and by re-installing VLC.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Video With Laptop Lid Closed?

Feb 19, 2010

I like to play videos from my laptop on my tv in my bedroom using an hdmi cable. I used it in windows all the time. I have gotten Ubuntu configured to play the video and sound but I cant figure out a way to keep playing when I close the lid. Every time I do that it goes black. Also when I re-open it the laptop display is blank as well and will not come back on.

Under the power option when lid closed all it offers is

Blank screen
shut down

In Windows I had a "do nothing"

Anyway to do this in Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Movie Player Does Not Play Video?

Aug 12, 2010

When I insert a movie DVD into the drive, the disk is read, a window pops up asking what software do I want to use (Open Movie Player is the default). I click use Open Movie Player and get "An error occurred could not read from resource" dialog - and the movie does not play.The file manager reads the disk without any problem, so don't think it's a bad disk (and it plays in my WinXP machine). I checked in Synaptic and it appears that Totem and all the stuff that needs to be installed with Totem is there. Is there another player or some front end for totem that I don't have? In that initial screen asking for software choice, totem is not an optio n.I've looked around in Medibuntu and it looks like all the needed files are already installed. Is there a different DVD player that needs to be installed?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Standard DVD's And Video Files Won't Play?

Jun 11, 2011

Just recently converted and I'm running both Ubuntu 11.04 (the Natty Narwhal?) (about 10 gig partitioned) and Windows Vista.

As said in the title, All DVD's and Video files won't play well: DVD's are pixelated most times, jumpy and sometimes the sound is scratchy - sound usually sorts itself out in a minute or so, but not always and similarly with any video files, like MP4s and other ripped files. I usually use VLC but others also don't work well or not at all. When playing MP4's do work it usually freezes the rest of the computer and I have to force switch off by the main switch as nothing works.

I've tried out tips like the following from users with previous problems on Ubuntu forums but still nothing seems to work: I've installed libdvdcss2 and the latest vlc. I've uninstalled all my players and reinstalled them.

I don't believe it's a restricted format problem as the DVD drive works fine in vista as does all the video files.

I wondered if perhaps my system specs aren't good enough for Ubuntu: intel(r) celeron(r) d cpu 220@1.2ghz 1.5ghz 2 gigs ram 32 bit operating system I drew this while on vista - when I tried to check my system specs using these commands on Ubuntu the "commands were not found": sudo ishw -html > mySpecs.html and sudo 1shw

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Won't Play Video / Movie - Sort It?

Jul 24, 2011

I'm hoping someone may be able to help me; I have done a complete new install of Mythbuntu 11.04 on an IBM T400, only OS on a formatted drive.

I have not changed any settings on the Backend, only loaded a few Music, Photos & Videos to the /var/lib/mythtv/music & pictures & video directories.

Photos & music functionality is 100%

The problem I'm having is with the "Watch Video" option; the test videos I have loaded to /var/lib/mythtv/videos directory, show up in the Watch Video section, all the information on each movie is displayed (looks great), it gives me the option to "Play" the video, but when I select play, nothing happens.

If I close the "Frontend" and open the same movies with VLC the work perfectly

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee Won't Play CDs With Video

Jun 25, 2010

I want to retain Banshee on my system. However, whenever I buy a CD that also contains video, it will not play the music or video. When I try to listen to the music, it simply puts a red cross against each track. Since combining video and music is VERY common, this means I have a whole host of CDs that will not play. MS media player and VLC have no problems with these, so how can I make Banshee play them?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon X1250 - Can't Play Video Or Games

Jan 17, 2011

When I don't install the packages for my ATI graphic cards (xserver-xorg-video-radeon, xserver-xorg-video-ati and radeontool), everything looks fine while my laptop boots and my desktop looks fine when the boot ends. Except that i can't look video or play games cuz it lags too much...which is normal. When I install the packages for my graphic card (xserver-xorg-video-radeon, xserver-xorg-video-ati et radeontool), I can play games, watch videos, but I notice this: when my laptop boot, just before the login screen, I get messy graphic problems...Looks like a broken old tv. Once I login, my background image is covered with white stripes...
