Ubuntu Multimedia :: Videos Won't Play After Nvidia Driver Install

May 9, 2010

I have an Asus ul30vt with the Intel 4500MHD/Nvidia G210M hybrid graphics. I finally found a way to get the Nvidia card to work. I followed these instructions [URL] and now my nvidia card is working. Now though I can't play a single video through the movie player that comes with Lucid 64bit or VLC. I have tried various movies in different formats and different resolutions, both hd and sd. Every video just shows a black screen with sound in the background.

EDIT: I set the output on vlc to X11 and now my videos play but 720p is p little choppy sometimes and 1080p is completely unplayable. Using the Intel card 720p was perfect and 1080p wasn't nearly as choppy but still not really watchable. So something must be messed up because this card should play a lot better than the Intel.

Debian Multimedia :: Use The Free Driver For Nvidia But I Can't To Play With Wine?

Feb 12, 2011

I have a problem when i use the Nvidia driver and the latest version of Xorg (1.9.4) on Debian Sid. In fact, when i minimise a window (Nautilus, console or Chromium/Iceweasel), i see the window's black border and it's very slowly when i minimize or maximize it. I don't know how to explain correctly so i tried to take a screenshot :

In this screenshot, you can see the black border. I haven't this problem if i use the free driver for my Nvidia but i can't to play with wine I tried with the driver on experimental repositories or the driver on Nvidia Website.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get AVI Videos To Play At All

Apr 4, 2010

I cannot get AVI videos to play with the Totem movie player that comes bundled with Ubuntu 8.04 on the Dell Mini 9. I keep getting: "Could not determine type of stream." Randomly, one or two of the dozen or so videos on my SD card will work, but most will not. This is very frustrating because all the videos I download are always in AVI format.

I tried used the synaptic package manager find an alternative player and tried MPlayer, but that didn't do anything. I'd just get a blank screen on everything. Using the tutorial in this forum, I got GNOME Mplayer, which also didn't work, but even a video that worked with Totem would only play audio with GNOME Mplayer.

I looked in the repository for video codec updates but didn't see any. What do I do? Is there like a Winamp for Linux? This is a total bummer. I just want to play AVI files that are so commonly used for video.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Play Avi Videos In 10.04 LTS

Jul 31, 2010

I have used ubuntu for a long time but always using either a live CD or my Flash stick.

On past Thursday i decided to install ubuntu on my laptop and i did it . It is light and healthy (ha ha). Any way, I would like to play AVI, MKV, RMVB, and MP4 videos but i couldn't. I tried a lot of debian packages and drives (i.e. files with .deb extension) but no result except installing RealPlay that i am using it to play mp3 files only.

can you give me some packages to play those files. (I can't connect my laptop to Internet for the time being). In addition, I have Huawei E1750 USB Modem but the system does not recogize it. Is there any way to play those videos and surf the net using the modem in UBUNTU 10.04 LTS.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Failure To Install Nvidia Driver?

May 7, 2011

I'm having issues installing the nvidia-96 driver package on the new Lubuntu 11.04. I have a GeForce4ti 4200 card and have had that driver package install successfuly on numerous flavors of Ubuntu over the years.

apt-get spits out the following error:

Code: The following packages have unmet dependencies: nvidia-96 : Depends: xorg-video-abi-8.0 but it is not installable Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 2: but it is not going to be installed
Meanwhile, a check of the currently installed xserver-xorg-core through apt-cache shows:


The nouveau driver does work, but I would really like full 3d acceleration like I have had in the past.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Some Videos With Vlc But They Are Too Choppy?

Nov 20, 2010

Im trying to play some videos with vlc but they are too choppy, I guess my comp is too slow. They are something like 1700x1000 h.264. What can I re-encode these too to maintain good quality but increase playback speed? If possible, an ffmpeg command to do this would be awesome.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Install Nvidia Proprietary Driver For Two Kernels

May 26, 2010

I am using the most recent ubuntu kernel (2.6.32-22-generic) for general stuff, and a real time kernel (2.6.31-10-rt) for music recording. Everything was working fine under Karmic.

When I upgraded to 10.04, I had problems with my Nvidia video card, so I uninstalled everying related to Nvidia. And reinstalled the driver using the installer script from the Nvidia website.

I can install the driver for one kernel, but when I boot on the other, it says my X config does not work, and I am back to a low-res no-effect display.

If I then try to reinstall the driver under that kernel, then the first one stops working with the Nvidia driver.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Play Videos

Oct 25, 2010

I can't play any of my avi, mp4 or even ogv files.I get audio but no video.This sort of points to a missing codec, but when I go into YaST I already appear to have the necessary ones (doesn't openSuse come with most out of the box anyway?).The file I am currently most interested in is (I believe) an Xvid.I already had libxvid4 but added xvidcore when it didn't work but this didn't help.I have packman in the repos (does it come by default in 11.3?)I installed vlc-qt to see if I could play it with VLC instead of Kaffeine but that didn't help either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Flash Videos / Games Play Really Bad

May 20, 2010

Last few years (as long as I use linux) I tried several ubuntu/debian installations, on 6-7 different computers (desktops/laptops)What a notice in common on all these installations is that flash videos and games run REALLY bad.Is this a common problem for all debian based distros or I am doing something wrong? I din't give much attention in past (even if tried some repeating flashplayer installations) but last month I'm building a flash arcade site and this flash player problem become a real pain.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Display Drivers (?) And How To Play .mkv Videos

Sep 24, 2010

Installed Ubuntu 10.04 recently. Been exploring it now.

My PC config: Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 @ 2.8 GHz,
Motherboard: Intel DG31 PR
No graphics card.

Display on Ubuntu is not great as compared to Windows 7. Are there any device drivers available for Ubuntu?? Or any other tweak to improve the display?

Also the video playback isn't that great. Videos get stuck once in a while and I also cannot play .MKV videos.

I am using VLC Media Player to play videos.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Converted Ipod Videos Do Not Play?

Dec 3, 2010

I recently ran into a problem though. using mav. meerkat I have figured out how to rip dvds using acid rip, medibuntu and some ..... tutorials. Then I tried to put them on my ipod using gtkpod. when this did not work I did some research and realized the video files needed to be converted. At first I tried avidemux, it seemed to work but when i put them on my ipod (video white 80 gb) I tried to play them and the screen just went black and several seconds later was sent back to the menu. Then I tried winnff, but there was no ipod preset only a rockbox ipod preset which I tried with the same result. I then tried openshot using these parameters -ipod libx264 libfaac 1.25 Mbit/s -> 1.5 Mbit/s 128 kbit/sto160 kbit/s Quarter Square NTSC 320x24029.97HzAVCHDQuicktime 7Still same result. I have gotten purchased mp4 videos to work using gtkpod, so I am assuming it is a conversion problem. Also the converted mp4 I made using openshot plays fine on banshee player

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Install Nvidia Driver Removal Studio 10.04 Lucid 64 Bit

Oct 10, 2010

I attempted to install nvidia-current 195.36.24 from Synaptic for an Nvidia GTX 460. It didn't appear to work and I want to fully un-install all Nvidia drivers and do the 'official' (convoluted) Nvidia procedure of logging out of x etc: - [URL] The issue is; I tried to remove via Synaptic, but when I restart the system I get an error stating: - 'Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode. The following error was encountered. You may need to update you configuration to solve this. (EE) Failed to load module "NVidia" (module does not exist, 0) (EE) No drivers available.

This is actually the error that kept appearing and made me want to remove everything. My question is: - Can I just go ahead and install the 'official' Nvidia driver, even though the 'startup' appears to be getting some kind of reference from somewhere? I understand that I'll have to remove the Nouveau driver as well some how. . .

Debian Multimedia :: Desktop Error After Nvidia Driver Install

Nov 8, 2015

Problem summary:

Error - "Oh no! Something has gone wrong." and "A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again."

How to get back to original nouveau driver after failed nvidia driver install?

What probably happened was a wrong nVidia driver install from the repository.. Because never had any problems earlier, but after I installed some nVidia packages, I get this error.

I already tried to remove nvidia driver by
# aptitude purge nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx
It was successful.

Then I reinstalled Xorg Nouveau driver and all its denpendencies by
# aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
It was also successful.

But problem still occurs..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play Downloaded Videos/movies (non-copyright)

Feb 22, 2010

I have been away from Linux in general and Ubuntu since 2006, but now wish to make Linux, and probably the Ubuntu distribution, my main operating system, especially for the Internet. I have been using Open Office since version 1.0, so no training or migration is necessary there. However, I have one challenge with my Ubuntu 9.1 ... movies which play under Windows will not play in Ubuntu. Under Windows Firefox needs Adobe Flash Player 10 to play these videos ... is there some open source software that will give Ubuntu Firefox the same capability?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PiTiVi Won't Play Created Videos / Reolve This?

May 13, 2010

Ok, so I found PiTiVi after upgrading to Lucid and figured, great, maybe I can stop using my Mac for video editing. Extra bonus, my Mac can't really handle the MTS files my small camera makes.

PiTiVi can load them as clips, and right-clicking on a clip and selecting "Play Clip" works just fine.

However, when I copy clips to the timeline in order to create an actual video, I can't play it or move the playback head. Pressing space does nothing, selecting "Preview -> Play" does nothing, clicking on the timeline does nothing. I can still move clips around, delete them, rearrange them, etc, but not play the video.

I can't render them, either, but I've found there's a known bug where PiTiVi won't render a video unless you move the playback head first... which I can't do.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play Videos - Only Getting Sound With A31G Motherboard

Aug 6, 2010

I'm testing a rather old motherboard (PC-Chips A31G) with both Ubutu Karmic and Lucid, everything seems to work fine but video playing.

I tried flv, mp4 and mpg with both mplayer and totem, but I can only get sound with no video, well, not a black screen but a deformed image (I don't attach an image because every attempt to capture the screen gets a black or transparent video).

I already installed ubuntu-restricted-extras package witho no luck.

What I don't understand is that, if I switch to another motherboard (using the same HDD), everything works perfect. I guess it's a problem with the motherboard's video chipset, but would like to confirm this and know whether there is a solution.

I attach lspci output for the A31G motherboard.
