Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Properly Burn CDs And DVDs After Lucid Update

Jun 1, 2010

Since updating to Lucid I have not been able to properly burn DVDs and CDs. I have looked everywhere for a solution to this and have been able to get some functionality but not full functionality. I am using Brasero as I find it nice and easy to use. I read somewhere to get libburn4. Since I did that, I managed to Burn an Audio CD, and today I have managed to Burn an ISO of Ubuntu 10.04, so that is at least some function back.

I cannot burn Data CDs or DVDs. I have a few .avi files I wanted to burn on a Data Disc as burning as a movie to DVD means that I would have to waste loads of discs. I can't seem to burn any Data DVDs. To check that this wasn't just a dodgey blank disk I have tried burning data CDs using lots of albums on the CD. Still no luck. What seems to happen is that it generates a checksum then the box with estimated time remaining, write speed and progress comes up. It hangs for a minute then spits the disk out.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid System Upgrade : Now Unable To Burn DVDs / Enable It?

May 3, 2010

Applied the Lucid Lynx 10.04 over the weekend.
Since then - I am unable to burn DVDs, although I can successfully read DVD's.
Everything worked fine before the upgrade.
Under Lucid Lynx I am able to burn CD's (both data files and .ISO) so it isn't the hardware.

I have tried Brasero and k3b as burners - they issue messages that the burner doesn't like the medium, which is standard DVD-R.
Bear in mind that I could burn similar DVDs *before* the upgrade...

Any help or suggestions on how to fix this please?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Won't Play In Lucid / Get It To Work?

Apr 29, 2010

I just installed 10.04 and am pleased w/ things, for the most part.

However, I cannot get a DVD disc to play (a movie, for instance) or be recognized unless I shut down the system and restart (provided I have already launched a Web video, or something). The DVD-ROM is dead to the world as far as disc recognition goes.

Things were just great in Karmic so this is completely confusing to me.

Does anyone have a fix?

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Burn Audio CDs With Brasero Under Lucid?

May 12, 2010

I am having problems burning audio CDs with Brasero 2.30.0 after my upgrade to 10.04. I was trying to burn a .wav file to CD but Brasero ejects the media without burning anything after transcoding the wav file and creating an image. I'm attaching the error log to aid in debugging.I can burn data CDs fine. My burner, a Samsung SM-308B, can't burn DVDs so I don't know about burning them.

Ubuntu :: Can't Load - Burn CDs And DVDs / Fix It?

Aug 11, 2010

As the title says, I am currently unable to watch DVDs or listen to audio CDs on my system - they simply do not load. Same goes for burning.

The system can load data CD-Rom's but even this is sluggish.

All of these functions have worked fine for me in the past and I'm not sure what changed between then and now. I'm pretty sure that my CD/DVD drive itself is fine, and that it's a system problem somewhere within Ubuntu.

OpenSUSE :: Burn DVDs But Cannot Mount Them?

Feb 9, 2010

I am able to burn DVDs with either Brasero or k3b, but opensuse then cannot mount them .

Those DVDs do contain the burned data since I can see it and read it on a Mac...

On openSUSE, I get the following error when inserting the DVD :

I added my user to 'disk' and 'cdrom' groups, but to no avail.

Here's the output from dmesg :

Code:
[275598.245976] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0

Ubuntu :: DVDs Burn At Lower Speed Than Specified With Brasero

Jan 12, 2011

I'm using Brasero to burn DVDs and I'm burning at 4x speed (the DVDs and the DVD burner both support 16x max). The problem is that while burning, the speed is too low and it jumps around between 1.5x and 2.4x. This seems weird to me.shouldn't the burn process fail if it drops below 4x or if the speed is as unsteady as it is? But the DVDs seem to turn out fine anyway.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Videos Won't Display Properly In Netbook Remix (Lucid) On Dell Mini 10v?

Jun 8, 2010

I recently got a Canon Powershot SD780 IS. It takes HD video at 780p. It's great, except that the videos won't display properly in Ubuntu Netbook Remix (Lucid) on my Dell Mini 10v.I've tried using Gstreamer (Banshee), Xine (Totem-xine), and MPlayer (GNOME MPlayer). These all should have worked, which makes me think something may be wrong either with the files themselves or my computer. Anyone have any idea what's going on here?FYI, when I pull up the Properties dialogue for one of the videos and look in the Audio/Video tab, it says:

Video
Dimensions: 1280 x 720
Codec: H.264 / AVC

Ubuntu :: K3B & Brasero Refusing To Burn DVD Properly?

Feb 27, 2010

I created a system backup ISO with remastersys that's about 3.4 GB, and I've repeatedly had failure and about 4 coasters now with both K3b and Brasero trying to burn it. I even ditched the original ISO and made another- same problem.I have always had problems burning discs in both programs, and of all the times I've tried to burn anything with either, I've gotten errors near the end of the data check stage, in verifying the data burned. I'm really tired of this, and I need this ISO perfect to reinstall my OS on a new laptop harddrive.This time it's K3b. It burned successfully, but I get errors in the data verification stage. Here's what I got:

Code:
System
K3b Version: 1.0.4

Hardware :: Can't Get Movies (dvds Or Files) To Play Properly?

Feb 3, 2010

I just built a new Linux box & cannot get Movies (dvds or files) to play properly.

Xine playback is jittery but audio stays in sync with video.
Xine complains about "Too Many Dropped Frames"
Mplayer playback is ok but audio & video are way out of sync.
Mplayer says my system is "Too Slow"

I think it might be a RADEON driver issue because my Mandriva-2009.1 uses X.org version: 1.6.1 & maybe those drivers (radeon_drv.so) don't fully support the ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU. I know there is a prorietory driver (fglrx) but before trying it I'd like to here what you think. Here is some relevant info about my computer:

Motherboard
Asus M4A785T-M
CPU AMD Athlon II (X2) Soscket AM3
Chipset AMD 785G/SB710
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU (integrated)

[Code]...

Sorry this post is so long. I know it isn't easy to sift thru a long post because that is exactly what I've been doing this past week while try ing to get a solution.

Ubuntu :: Can't Burn Lucid 10.04 Iso CD

Apr 30, 2010

I've burned iso CDs for 8.10, 9.04, 9.10, Linux Mint 5, 6, 7 with Brasero. In addition I've burned music CDs with Brasero. It has worked well for me. But now I can't burn a 10.04 iso CD. I REALLY want to get a CD burned so I can install Lucid Lynx.

don't suggest I try kb3, Gnomebaker, or some other burner.. Brasero which always worked before.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: BBC IPlayer Desktop App Update Fails On Lucid?

Sep 19, 2010

Recently (after the new version iPlayer was released I guess) I have been unable to download IPlayer content. On going to download, the IPlayer screen offers to install the IPlayer Desktop app, tries to install Air (already installed via Software Centre) and fails with a message like "A download error occurred. Try to download again?". Repeating just loops around to the same error message.

This happens on both my PC and laptop - both running Lucid. Have tried uninstalling the Iplayer app and Air, but still the same happens. Any suggestions, or do I have to wait for the Beeb to get it sorted?

Ubuntu :: PrintScreen Not Working Properly In Lucid?

Apr 30, 2010

I am having some problems with taking screenshots in Lucid while desktop effects are enabled. If I disable desktop effects, the screenshot works fine, but if they are enabled, no matter what windows are open, it only ever shows my wallpaper and the mouse pointer, no panels, icons, windows.

I am using the older 190.42 nvidia drivers if that makes a difference.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Lucid Update Manager Fails To Update - Now 64 Days Out Of Date?

I am trying to update using Update Manager and I get this message: Failed to fetch "Failed to fetch [URL]..404 Not Found" My system is 64 days out of date now.

I have looked elsewhere for an answer and some others have had similar problems, but I have not found a reason for it happening, nor an answer. I wonder if anyone can help me please. I have been using Ubuntu for several months, can use the Terminal if I have the right commands to issue, but beyond that have limited knowledge of the system.

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 (opensuse-guide.org, not opensuse-community.org, 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 Multimedia :: DVDs Not Playing / But Only Sometimes

Apr 14, 2010

My newly installed (but not new) DVD drive seems to play some movies some days, but others all the time. I'm pretty sure it's just a little picky about scratches. I can hear it in the drive; when I insert the disk, I can tell when it isn't spinning. When it does start spinning, that's when the Media options window pops up asking me what I want to do with the disk.

I do not want to have to rip the entire dvd and then transcode it and then take the clip out of the one I've saved on my drive as I have lots and lots of dvds to get though I've tried loads of things and none of them seem to be able to do this, dvdrip, cinelarra, kedenlive, live, kino and others that I can't remember the names of.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Play DVDs / What's Going On?

Aug 24, 2010

When I put a DVD in either of my two drives, the movie will not play using either VLC or Movie Player.

When I go to 'Open Disc' in VLC, next to 'Disc Device' it lists a string of two very odd characters, ��, as the only option. The drop-down arrow doesn't work. When I click on 'Browse' and navigate to the name of the movie (which I assume is the drive) in the 'Places' menu, nothing happens.

In Movie Player, when I go to Movie > Play Disc "(Insert Movie Name Here)", I get the following error message: "Could not read from resource"

The same thing happens with either drive, with either of two DVDs.

DVDs seem to play fine in Windows XP using VLC.

What's going on here?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Still Won't Play

Jun 8, 2011

I've installed libdvdcss2 (using these instructions), but still can't play encrypted DVDs. It appears to be an encryption thing, because I can play backed-up/decrypted DVDs. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, 64 bit. Another user here got it working by installing Ubuntu from scratch, then going straight to install medibuntu and libdvdcss, but that's not a realistic option for me at this point.
