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 :: Flash Videos Won't Play Sound Anymore

Feb 15, 2010

I was having problems with pulseaudio, which I eventually cleared up. Now sound works on everything except flash videos and games. I have tried to reinstall adobe-flashplugin in synaptic, but I get this:

E: adobe-flashplugin: subprocess installed pre-removal script returned error exit status 2

When I try to remove Adobe Flash Plugin 10 in Ubuntu Software Center, I get this:

installArchives() failed: (Reading database ...
(Reading database ... 5%
(Reading database ... 10%
(Reading database ... 15%


I primarily use Opera, but flash videos do not work in either Opera or Firefox.

a. the machine boots up
b. files are played in dragon player
c. the machine shuts down

my sound does not work when:

1. i try to play streaming flash videos online (e.g. videos videos show the image but no sound will play)
2. the same goes for vlc media player: images yes, sound no.
3. i use skype *edit: additional problem*

i made no changes, that i know of, to my machine before this started happening. one day everything was working fine and i turned off my machine to go to sleep. the next day, i turn on my machine, and surprise, the sound doesn't work in some instances.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Anything - Music - Flash - Videos - Games - 'muffled' - Poor Sound Quality

Apr 7, 2010

I just got my hands on an MSI E7235-295US and slapped Ubuntu 9.10 on it. So far everything's worked great, but I am beginning to get a bit concerned about my sound quality. The laptop itself has 5 speakers + subwoofer so I should be getting 5.1 sound, if I understand things correctly (the newegg link should provide more details) and when I play anything (music, flash, videos, games, etc...) the sound comes out 'muffled'. Almost as if it is in a concert hall, maybe. I initially wondered if the problem is related to the 5 speakers and if the sound is initially only setup for two. If that is the case, nothing I've done has seemed to made any real difference. I've tried changing the master/pci channels, but it only hides it a little, and doesn't solve the problem.

This seemed to be on the right track, but the laptop is still really new and not listed in the alsa file.

Some info:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 7220

Debian :: Totem Won't Play Flash Videos

Apr 3, 2010

when i try to play a flash video the visual works but not the audio and totem tells me i need the suitable codec which it says is gstreamer-bad and when i attempt to install it, it says that it conflicts with gstreamer-really-bad but if i remove gstreamer-really-bad and install gstreamer-bad totem gives me an internal data stream error instead and even visual won't work. so i ran totem--debug and this is the terminal output with gstreamer-bad when trying to play flash video.

** message: error: internal data stream error. gstflvdemux.c(52: gst_flv_demux_loop (): /play/decodebin0/flvdemux0: stream stopped, reason error

i also ran totem --debug with gstreamer-really-bad installed and this is the output then.

totem --debug
** (totem:7979): debug: init of python module
** (totem:7979): debug: registering python plugin instance: videos+totempythonplugin
** (totem:7979): debug: creating object of type videos+totempythonplugin

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Past 60 Hz With ATI & Lucid Lynx?

Sep 19, 2010

I've recently built a half-new computer and installed Lucid Lynx on it.I managed to get everything else working and even got the ATI drivers installed. However, I can't get above 60 Hz on my old CRT monitor - the ATI driver controls have 60 as the highest selectable refresh rate. The preferred 1152x864 screenmode works fine otherwise.

Here are the known specifications:

Monitor horizontal refresh: 30-86 kHz
Monitor vertical refresh: 50-150 Hz
Known working display mode on earlier graphics card: 1152x864, 85 Hz.

My motherboard (with integrated graphics) is the Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AMD 880G AM3. The GPU is Radeon HD 4250.The ATI drivers seem to have "taken over" the xorg.conf, so I don't know where to input any values.

But I get no sound for anything, not even alerts. I don't eve know how to debug it, because everything I have looked at looks like it should be working.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Shared Music Library Between Lucid Lynx And XP

Jun 24, 2010

I've decided to make the plunge and switch to linux! Actually, I plan to dualboot Win XP and Ubuntu 10.04. I figure I might as well keep XP for a few games and for syncing my iPod nano with iTunes.I want to set up my computer so that my music library on my windows partition will be accessible to Banshee (or perhaps another program) so that I can listen to my tunes in Linux. However, I want to make it so that Banshee can't actually edit my files/tags (I want to leave iTunes in charge of that). I just want it to be able to play the mp3s and aac's (none of my files are in DRM format luckily). So I guess what I am asking, is can I make my iTunes folder on the Windows partition READ-ONLY to the Linux OS maybe?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound On Clean 10.04 Lucid Lynx On A Thinkpad T61?

Sep 26, 2010

I've installed a clean Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx on my ThinkPad T61, and everything seems to be OK, but I am unable to get any sound output at all (internal speakers and external audio).

No system sounds, no sound from Movie Player, Rythmbox, Sound Recorder.

On my previous Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 I had no problems with sound (as far as I can recall).

Any hints to what I should do to try to get sound output?

The output from various sound related commands included below.

$ sudo lshw -C sound

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Use Quad Monitor ATI FGLX On Lucid Lynx?

May 23, 2010

I'm having an annoying issue with my display configuration.

Some specs:

Motherboard: MSI 760gm-e51
CPU: AMD Phenom II 955 Quadcore
MEM: 8Gbs DDR3
VGA: ATI Radeon HD4850
ATI Radeon 3000 (on board)

All four monitors work fine with two X servers ( 2 monitors each instances) on Ubuntu 9.10 with surroundview enabled in the BIOS. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.4 and all i get is 4 blank screens. when i disable surroundview in the BIOS with PCIE as default display the HD4850 work great. I should add that on both installs i used the latest atalyst 10.4. It seems like there's something wrong with Ubuntu 10.04.

Here's the xorg.conf of the working Ubuntu 9.10:


Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 1050
Screen "amdcccle-Screen[1]-0" 624 0

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Broken Input Sound In Lucid Lynx 10.04 (ICH8)

May 24, 2010

For the last 3 release all my hardware have been working like a charm. But after upgrading to Lycid I have problems with skype. I fix the camera issues with the following command

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype

But the sound of my microphone is totally jagged. I have an ICH8 Intel integrated card. I have worked the last 2 years (with an ocasionally glith in the volume) but not having Mic is a real PITAo what can I try to fix it? Please, don't tell me "remove all pulse audio stuff"... It must be another way.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music Suddenly Stopped Playing In Lucid Lynx?

Jun 7, 2010

After a successful upgrade to lucid, everything was going GREAT (including FINALLY having surround output) until now all of the sudden music files won't play... When I double-click a file, Totem opens automatically, and it says it's playing,but there's no sound and the bar does not move across at the bottom. In VLC, the bar moves like it's playing, but there is still no sound. Doesn't work when I hover the cursor over a file, either. In previous versions of Ubuntu, a simple reboot would fix this, but that doesn't work with Lucid... Online streaming works fine.

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.

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.

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.
