Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Install Multimedia Support?

May 10, 2010

I set up up Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid on my desktop. Why can I not install multimedia support for common formats following the guide here?

I've added the medibuntu repo. I'm up to the part where it says "UBUNTU FAMILY 8.10 AND HIGHER USERS ONLY" and i'm following directions for "32-Bit Ubuntu Users". This is what I get when I paste the command in terminal:


It says "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove", why am I being told this? If this guide is not for Lucid than what guide is?

Debian Multimedia :: Install Font With Better Unicode Support?

Mar 20, 2015

I'm running a Debian Wheezy system. There are a lot of characters I want to use from the U+1F*** set of characters. But when I use them or look them up in the character map, all I see is the square with the code inside. Is there some font package I can install from the repository that has better support for these characters?

E.g., when I am instant messaging my girlfriend, I like to use the HEAVY BLACK HEART character (❤, U+2764). But there are a whole bunch of other "romantic" characters that are listed but not actually displaying for me, like the KISS MARK (U+1F48B), which I would like to use. These characters apparently show up on her system, which is an android phone.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Install A Kernel Patch To Support On-board NVidia Graphics?

Mar 22, 2011

I am impressed with 11.4 and am happy that for the first time ever I don't need to install a kernel patch to support my on-board nVidia graphics. However, the on-board sound no longer works now. I don't know how to set it up in phonon. My device number 0 in phonon is MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78S high definition audio, and I assume this is my nVidia on-board sound card. The driver information states snd-hda-intel.

How can I check what is wrong with it? It did work fine on 11.2 right up to the 11.4 installation. I do get system sounds (like the start-up and shut-down sounds), but nothing from any application, e.g., firefox playing a video. Based on the advice from another thread I tried: speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav This does not produce any sound, but gives the following information: speaker-test

Playback device is default
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Get GTKPod To SUpport .ogg

Apr 20, 2011

across this problem when the changes I was making (such as adding lyrics, cover art, etc) weren't being saved to either my computer or my iPod. I figured out that the problem was the there was no PC file location. When I tried to add my Music folder (all files are .ogg), it gave me an error saying that all the files were incompatible. Any information on how to fix this would be amazing.Note: I can still sync through Banshee, so it's not a immediate problem. However, I can't add lyrics since Banshee doesn't support that, so I would like to get this fixed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IceCast - MP3 Support On Server

Jan 13, 2010

I'm trying to get configured: (domain.com to be used for the purpose of explaining setup)

Root/naked domain (domain.com/www.domain.com) to be setup and configured with Apache/PHP/MySQL. Then radio.domain.com being controlled by IceCast with multiple streams (some live, some MP3 based).

The primary domain is already setup and configured under Apache, and IceCast is already installed, but here is where the problems start showing up.

It's my understanding that Ices2 cannot serve MP3's but only OGG files through IceCast. So just for the sake of testing and wanting to get a sample stream working, I placed a public domain OGG file into /etc/icecast2/music/ and called it "book.ogg."

Then the following are my configuration files: /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Video Support For AVCHD Still / Get That?

Jan 17, 2011

I've been trying to view the footage I have in 1080i AVCHD on my new system but can only view it in VLC, and then only when hardware acceleration is turned off, and there's still a bit of shearing with a hexcore and a Radeon 5850.

Is there a trick to get it to play and/or preview in Mplayer/OpenShot/PiTiVi ? I've tried them all, and I can hear sound but no video. Maybe there's a system-wide way to shut off video decode acceleration.

I guess what I'm asking is, can anyone play/preview/edit in these applications with AVCHD or is it something with my new system? Everything else seems to work great. Maybe I need to try turning off compiz compositing?

Unfortunately, I bought the damn thing to do exactly this kind of video editing, and don't want to have to drop back into Win 7 to use Vegas.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Netflix Support For Linux

Feb 24, 2011

Just got off the phone with Netflix support. Apparently they really want everyone to CALL to request Linux support. You don't have to be a current subscriber (though in fairness you should probably at least be open to subscribing). Archaic if you ask me, but I guess that's how they gauge interest.So, if you're interested, give Netflix a ring and say that you want Netflix on Linux. It might help to mention that Amazon's recently released "Prime" video service DOES support Linux already. They have some competition now!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dvd Menu Support For Mplayer?

Jul 17, 2011

I am using mplayer with Umplayer/Smplayer as graphic front ends. I have enabled DVD menus by checking the box in Preference > Drives in Umplayer(also tried Smplayer) but there is still no menu when I stick a DVD in the dvd drive, on the other hand the menus show up if I use VLC to play the DVD so it is not the dvd's problem.

I have already installed libdvdnav4.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Enable Vdpau Support In Machine

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Support For Audio Recording Versus Mac

Apr 30, 2010

I have a question about audio recording. I've always wanted to set up a sort of personal studio. Not anything too professional, but I want to be able to make quality recordings without too many problems. All I'll probably end up using is a midi keyboard electric guitar and bass. But what I was wondering was, is it a better idea to get a Mac for something like that, or will Ubuntu support that just fine? I know there's great software available, and I've got used to using Jack. But I've read problems about real-time kernel support and xruns with Jack and Ardour, and I'm just wondering if that's something that will make using Ubuntu for this complicated.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Adobe Air - Support 64 Bit Systems - Can't Get It To Work

Jun 11, 2010

Adobe Air 2.0 has finally been released, has anyone tried it? It's supposed to support 64 bit systems now, but I still can't get it to work! When I download the .deb from Adobe's site I get a wrong architecture error message when I try to open it, and there doesn't seem to be a 64 bit version that I can find. When I go to BBC IPlayer it goes through all the instalation steps and I got Adobe Air and BBC Iplayer listed under Accesories in my list of programs. However when I tried to open BBC IPlayer it worked normally for about 10-15 seconds and then vanished for no apparent reason. I rebooted and now Air and IPlayer do not appear on the list of programs, although if I try and dowload a programme from the IPlayer website I get the IPlayer desktop up and working for about 10-15 seconds until it inexplicably vanishes again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: OpenShot Editor Does Not Support OGV Files

Aug 9, 2010

I've been using gtk record my desktop, which does a very good job and records nicely as a .ogv. The problem is, the Openshot editor doesn't appear to support .ogv files, which means I have to find some way of converting the .ovg to something Openshot can use. Having used both Pitivi and Arista to re-encode the file, I find the picture quality suffers some substantial loss by becoming noisy.

So, can anyone suggest:
1. A way to get Openshot to recognise .ogv files natively? or,
2. Suggest another screencast program that records to a high quality file that Openshot understands? or,
3. Suggest a video editing program that can open and work with .ogv files, allowing the addition of music and titles (text), and then save to a high quality file like mp4?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Widescreen Support For Philips 241E1SB 24-inch

The resolution is 1920x1080 (16:9), 60 Hz. with the default recommended nvidia driver. Maybe ran into the same situation or knows how to configure X.
