Ubuntu Multimedia :: Digital Media Connection ( Well, Lack Of )?

Jan 18, 2010

I've trolled the forums for about 30 mins or so already looking this up, but can't seem to find any solutions. Most threads seem to end with either a "report to launchpad" or they just end without resolution. So in case I've missed a solved thread:

Plugging my Kodak C503 in gives inability to mount due to lock issues, the infamous -60 lockout. However, I get TWO icons in metacity, neither are mounted/will mount. Turning the cam off removes both, and I can't get down to only one. Not sure if this is because it's reading the camera's internal memory + my SD card.

So, I pulled the SD card out, and jacked it into my card reader in my lappy. no dice. In fact, none of my SD cards work; leading me to believe I need to find drivers for it.

Notes: (1)It's a Pavillion ZD7000 (2)nothing pops up in fdisk (3)I really don't want to load up windows

Ubuntu :: Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard 3000?

Oct 27, 2010

Got to say first off, I have LOVED the 10.10 release, absolutely adore it. Only problem that I have noticed thus far, is that when I use any of the non standard buttons, it causes my left clicking to stop working.

It's not a big deal but something that does come in handy every once in a while =/

Networking :: Cannot Connect Wifi Pure Evoke Flow Digital Radio And Media Player To Ubuntu Laptop

Jan 4, 2010

I have a Pure Evoke Flow radio that connect to my wireless router for streaming internet radio, this works fine. It also has the functionality to connect to a hard drive over wifi and play any MP3 files on it and it runs on Linux.

With Windows (sorry) I just click on the folder and make it Shareable, on the Radio I then set it to search for servers and it finds my wife's PC and plays her music.

I have (I believe) set my music directory on Ubuntu 9.10 to be shareable, it downloaded and installed a couple of files including samba and then rebooted. However my Radio cannot see it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Digital Camera Not Recognized On USB

Jun 17, 2010

Previously I could plug my EOS 20D into the USB and f-spot would pop up and let me import photos. This was on 9.10. The camera is fine, it still does exactly what it did on the machine next to me which is still running 9 (or 8, I forget).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DRM On BD 'Digital Copy' Of Owned Movie.

Jan 2, 2010

I have a "Digital Copy" of District 9 that came with my Blu-Ray disc. My problem is that the file is a DRM encoded .wmv so that I cannot play it back in totem on my 32-bit Karmic system. VLC plays it back as distorted noise.I know this BS is because of the files 'Digital Restrictions Management'. My Question is: What programs should be used to break DRM and re-encode the file, and HowTo?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Make Digital Camo On Gimp?

Mar 23, 2010

I've been searching for a while now and come up empty handed, but after some research on the history of digital camouflage and how it was created I was able to devise a simple method for creating at least a close approximation of the real thing.

Step 1: start with a picture of the "texture" you intend to use. it doesn't matter if it's a low resolution picture because you are going to intentionally pixelate it

Step 2: use the noise plugin "pick" and create some static in the picture. I've found that you can just set everything to maximum and apply the pick with good results.

Step 3: (optional) if you want this to be a repeating pattern, at this time apply the "make seamless" tool under Map plugins.

Step 4: Apply a pixel blur. dial it in just to where you start to see hard pixel edges forming. In most digital camo patterns, the pixels are taller than they are wide, about a 3:2 ratio

Step 5: Choose the number of colors you want in your camo pattern. Virtually all digital patterns are either three or four colors, but never any more than that. Change the image mode from RGB to 4 color indexed. Then you can change it back to RGB if you wish to change the colors in your camo.

you can play with the settings on each step to dial in something that looks proper. The proper scale for your camo is roughly 1/4" tall pixels. Try playing with different textures, or even non digital camo prints. In about two minutes we've just created both a woodland and a desert digital print that is close enough to pass for MARPAT using free software.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulseaudio Digital Out Has Just Stopped Working

Oct 10, 2010

For no conceivable reason, pulseaudio will no longer output via the spdif connection on my onboard sound card.Up until now, various applications could output digitally (mostly using via the alsa plugin) fine. DVD playback would passthrough DD/dts bitstreams if the application was set to communicate with alsa directly. The sound profile in Ubuntu's audio applet would have to be set to Analog Stereo Output for this to work, no idea why.

Now, all the works is digital passthrough via alsa (i.e DVDs). So definitely not a hardware issue. Regular audio either via the alsa plugin or using pulse directly does not work so no music/system sounds/flash etc. All sliders are unmuted (see pics linked below) and the volume meters all show movement with sound activity. Changing the Profile setting does nothing, I thought maybe it had been fixed so digital actually meant digital.This has happened before (sometimes triggered by DVD playback and DD passthrough) but usually fiddling with the mute toggles fixed it.Possibly this has been caused by a recent update.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Terratec EWX 24 96 : No Sound With Digital Input

Dec 19, 2010

I'm using a terratec EWX 24 96 sound card with ubuntu studio, and I have sound with the digital output, I have no sound with the digital input.

I had sound with the same configuration in Windows XP, and all the hardware is ok.

I think I have no sound at all, with Ardour or Rosegarden, that's like if the digital input was not here in jack.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Digital Signage Project For Burning Man Camp?

Aug 2, 2010

I'm working on a digital signage project for my burning man camp.My display needs to cycle, on a timer, among various pieces of content, including:

* images
* video
* flash content
* information screens (vanilla xhtml)

Ideally, it would also have a generic xml/rpc interface for easily updating information screens via iphone/android. I'm contemplating whipping something up in jquery to run in a fullscreen browser, but have a feeling I might be reinventing the wheel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Finally: Digital AC-3 Surround Sound With Pulseaudio ?

Oct 29, 2010

Here is the update to the old thread that somehow disappeared "HOWTO: A52 Encoded 5.1 Surround Sound Awesomeness with PulseAudio and ALSA on Hardy" thread (archived here). See also this bug report.There are two steps here: add the a52 plugin, and tell pulseaudio to use it.

Step 1:
Go to a terminal and do the following:

sudo bash
echo "pcm.a52 {[code]....

Pulse should come back on its own unless you disabled autospawn.Now pulse should be aware of your digital surround output. Go to System -> Preferences -> Sound. Click on the "Hardware" tab and change the profile to one of the 'Digital Surround 5.1' profiles. Play some sound (I like to test with www.pandora.com) and enjoy!If it doesn't show up, it probably means that alsa didn't create it correctly. To test if alsa sees the a52 device, type:

aplay -D a52:0

If it errors out (audio open error: No such file or directory) then that means it did not like your asound.conf settings. You might learn something by looking at the output of 'sudo alsa reload' or just 'aplay'.[code].....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Select Digital Stereo Output On Nvidia Audio

Jul 27, 2010

I've done a search on google and on here regarding my issue and I couldn't see anything.

I have the following audio device;

00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
At the moment I have it playing through Analog Stereo Output. (See attached image)

The sound is mostly flawless and I haven't been having troubles with it.

But, because I play audio through my logitech speakers (2 speakers, 1 subwoofer) I should be able to get digital stereo sound shouldn't I?

From the drop down box of the attached image there are two options for Digital Stereo;

Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958
Digital Stereo IEC958 Output + Analog Stereo Input

None of them work for me. Even if I do a restart, I get no sound from Rhythmbox or Firefox.

I use the pulseaudio sound server and I have the PulseAudio device chooser installed. When I had the Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958 selected I used the Volume Meter playback to see if there was any sound coming through. Both left and right showed activity but nothing came through the speakers.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 Hangs While Trying To Transfer Photos And Videos From Digital Camera

Sep 10, 2010

Ubuntu Hangs While Trying to Transfer Photos and Videos From Digital Camera I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I've been trying to transfer photos and videos (13 gigs worth) from it to a local folder (I'm currently using Ubuntu 10.04) via USB cable. I've had very little success - I've only transferred one video file, everything else failed, including a single photo transfer attempt!

First it would take really long for the actual transfer to start after I've dragged and dropped files from the camera to a local folder (or even doing ctrl+c and ctrl+v). The progress bar would appear, but then it would take forever before the file transfer would start. In the case of the single video transfer, it started and finished after a while. But when I selected all of the videos on the camera and tried to transfer it all, it would just take a really long time, slow down gnome to the point of hanging, and then eventually just show me an error message indicating nothing could be transferred.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Convert A Digital Sound Stream To Analogue Before It Is Sent To The Hdmi Out?

Jan 13, 2011

how to have alsa convert a digital sound stream to analogue before it is sent to the hdmi out? I would like to modify asound.conf. I do not have gnome as a desktop so I need to manually input the changes to asound.conf. The reason I ask is. I have sound going out of my acer revo to both spdif and hdmi. The spdif goes to my receiver and I want digital passthrough for that. The hdmi goes to my tv and I need it to be analouge before it gets to the tv. Right now, I get passthrough to both the spdif and hdmi. (the tv is all static) I want to have alsa convert the signal for the hdmi output only.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.4 - Lost Digital Surround Output

Mar 10, 2011

Alright so I just upgraded my 11.3 x64 to 11.4 using zypper dup and have now lost the ability to play digital output 5.1. Before doing the upgrade I was running alsa rather than phonon but apparently the upgrade decided to enable phonon, and I no longer show digital surround output. The soundcard I have is a CM8738 and I am using the coaxial output on it hooked into my receiver. In system settings->multimedia->phonon->speaker setup the soundcard shows and I have the ability to select different profiles.

However the digital output settings only show stereo and the sound output device the only one listed is CM8738 Digital Stereo (IEC958). I have selections for analog 5.1 and analog 7.1 but neither put anything out of the digital connection. As I said I was running alsa before and was able to do straight digital pass through which allowed my receiver to do the decoding and use all of my channels. How can I setup phonon to use digital passthrough, or switch back to alsa and get that setup again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Override The Default Sample Rate Of Digital Audio Output?

Apr 12, 2010

After some fudging around, I managed to get my 64-bit karmic install to output sound digitally to my amplifier. So far, so good. The amplifier indicates a sample rate of 44.1KHz, while it is capable of 48KHz (higher sample rate would be better, i assume). Also, more annoying, it indicates no signal when no applications are producing sounds, causing it to miss the first second of output when I unpause my music. Windows 7 outputs everything as 48KHz, apparently also outputting silence as the light doesn't blink when i pause a media player.

The question then being: How do I override the default sample rate of digital audio output (if this is even possible, googling suggested that this might be overridden by applications); How do I make my sound driver output silence when no application is outputting sound.

Additional info:
- Ubuntu Karmic x64 (dist-upgraded from jaunty)
- Exaile media player with Normal playback engine and Automatic audio sink
- Asus P5Q-E motherboard
- Philips DFA888 amplifier

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Create A Set Of Contact Sheets Of A Directory Of Digital Photo Files?

Apr 3, 2011

The only thread on creating a contact sheet appears to be years old & locked:- (photography) how to create a single jpg /tif contact sheet? So may I ask what's the most common method today of creating a set of contact sheets of a directory of, say, 500 photos (on Ubuntu 10.04 lucid)? The only thing I really want to specify is the grid (e.g., 4 photos by 6 photos, or something like that).


For example:


montage -label "%f" -frame 5 -pointsize 10 -geometry +4+6 *.jpg index1.jpg

This supposedly creates an 4x6 grid of images with a label under each image (of pointsize 10).Here's another example from the net:

- ImageMagick Thumbnails and Contact Sheets

What do YOU use to create a decent contact sheet set out of a large directory of photos?
