Ubuntu Multimedia :: Movie Player Won't Run Dvd?

Sep 6, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04, and am trying to play a DVD on my Toshiba Notebook NB100. Movie Player says it cannot find the plugins suitable to play the DVD. I have gone through procedures recommended on numerous forums to get the codecs and libdvd packages installed but I still get a notice telling me MP doesn't have the plugins.

Nov 4, 2010

I have a DVD with a error located at a certain time. Each time I watch the DVD and then come to that point Movie Player (or vlc player) returns a error. Now I want to rip this DVD but all the rippers I tried return a error at that point when they try to rip it. Rippers I tried:

- dvd::rip
- Acidripper
- Avidemux

Now I want to know ain't there a ripper which can read over these errors and still make a decent rip?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VCD Not Playing On VLC And Movie Player

Jan 1, 2010

This is the first time I tried playing a VCD on my laptop and when I tried playing it on VLC, it indicated that an error, that it cannot read the file. I searched around the net for some solution and tried opening the VCD through the terminal to no avail. I tried switching to the Movie Player but it's the same. They play the initial 'Warning on illegal copying of the film, etc.' which lasts for about 15 seconds but after that, it won't play at all.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 VLC & Movie Player - Say Can't Find The Wma Codec

May 12, 2010

This never happened with Ubuntu 8.10-9.10, but both my video players, VLC and Movie Player, say they can't find the wma codec (actually it says wmas, and this is referring to videos not audio) and says that this can't be put right, even though at the same time these players have begun to play the video correctly.

I've got all the updates and the Restricted Extras, etc. Everything seems to be working. This is on an Acer Aspire One, dual booting with W7, installed from USB stick.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Movie Player - No Video - No Subtitles ?

May 13, 2010

I have just upgraded to Lucid. While trying to watch movies (i have installed all the requisite plugins), I encountered certain problems. The following is what I noticed after some thorough search into the issue:

1. Suppose one goes to the location of a video file, say, /Home/Videos/Sound of Music.xyz , double clicking the file would open the movie player (Totem) but one would not be able to see any video, though sound is coming.

2. Sometimes, on entering the fullscreen the video started from double clicking the file is visible, but leaving full screen, it is lost again. This however doesnt happen in all cases, because mostly one sees no video if through double-clicking the file.

3. The same operation of playing, if done through the player (by /Movie/Open.. or by Adding a video file in the playlist) happens quite properly.

4. A .mkv file doesnt play for long, since the player crashes.

5. Subtitles are not detected, even after putting the settings on automatic loading of subtitles (/Edit/Preferences/Automatically.....)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Movie Player Won't Play DVDs?

Jul 25, 2010

When I put a DVD in my PC (any DVD), it recognizes the DVD and even tells me the title of the movie (for example, it knows that I put Cat People in the DVD drive). But then it gives an error message, "An error occurred. Could not read from resource." I have Ubuntu 9.10 on a HP Pavilion ZE4900 laptop.

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 :: DVD Player Does Not Recognize DVD Movie Disk

Jan 4, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 My cd/dvd player recognizes game and data CD'S/DVD'S the cd/dvd icon appears on desktop and I can access the file as well as playing games off the cd's.

When I try movie DVD's I get no desktop icon nor is it shown in the file managers. When trying to access the movie via VLC (open disk) I get the following error:

Playback failure:
DVDRead could not open the disc "/dev/dvd".

Your input can't be opened:

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/dvd'. Check the log for details. (Don't know what log its referring to)SMplayer and xine won't work either

I have tried every tip I could find on this forum. I installed all restricted format files including libdvdread4 and then ran this command sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

followed all the advice from this restricted formats/playing dvd's

Its like the drive won't recognize a movie DVD.

Just as a side not I use to run simply mepis with no issues with movie dvd's. I also dual boot to Winxp no problems their either

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No More Full-screen In Movie Player?

Apr 19, 2011

today in the morning I upgraded several gstreamer related packages (I suspect from the Gstreamer Developers PPA; list and versions see below). Now I just noticed that in the Movie Player (Totem Movie Player 2.30.2 using GStreamer 0.10.32 (prerelease)), when viewing a video in full screen mode, the whole screen is filled with black as expected, but the video itself now remains at its original size in the center of the screen, it is not being resized to the size of the screen. This was not the case two days ago, and I suspect the gstreamer upgrade.

Does anyone have any pointers on this, before I file a bug report? As the Movie Player itself doesn't provide any further options on video scaling (yeah, what a nice GNOME philosophy...), there's not much I can do from within the GUI..


Upgraded the following packages:
gstreamer0.10-alsa (0.10.32-1~lucid1) to
gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad (0.10.21-1~lucid1) to
gstreamer0.10-plugins-base (0.10.32-1~lucid1) to

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Playing DVD Gives A Black Screen In Movie Player And VLC

May 3, 2010

System Specs:
Mother board: P4P800 VM
Video: Internal (plus a tuner card I don't use
OS: Ubuntu 10.04 (with latest updates

Ok so a brief description. The comp initially had an ATI Radeon X1600 card I removed because it was giving more trouble than it was worth. I'll add it later if there is a chance it might make things batter. (NB the computer was painfully slow with the card installed... runs faster without it)

I installed the restricted formats pakage as per the instructions found at: [URL]

So I installed the ubuntu-restricted-extras package and then ran:

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

in the terminal.

Now here is what happens. The DVD plays as I can hear it but the screen is black. moving the screen i'll get glimpses of video but not much. This happens in MOvie PLayer and in VLC. However with VLC by moving it around and going full screen I manage to get the video component working as well.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Most Of OGV Files Not Play In Totem Movie Player

Jan 4, 2011

I have a lot of .ogv and .mpg files. Most of the .ogv files won't play, and none of the .mpg files will play, in Totem. I installed VLC media player and all the files will play in it. If I click on file properties in Nautilus for the files that won't play, it says "Creating Properties window. You can stop this operating by clicking cancel." But it never actually shows me the file properties.
