Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lines In Full Screen Video Playback?

May 2, 2011

I really don't know where I should ask this question. When I'm watching a video in full screen (ex, avi or h264 file) I am seeing random horizontal bars where there is action on the video like where a head is turning.When the motion is slow I am less likely to see these lines. Faster the motion, lots of lines or shaky motion. I was using my onboard Geforce 6150 GPU but thought it was because it was underpowered. I then bought a GT220 thinking that it was the problem. It is still but less frequent. Using the built in player, VLC... I don't know where to look, what to search for...There is my setup:

AMD Athlon II x2 255
4GB DDR3
nvidia GT220 512mb

[code]....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Occasional Horizontal Lines In Video Playback?

Sep 8, 2010

I'm experiencing occasional flickering of horizontal lines during DVD playback. Another thread suggested turning off the de-interlacing but it is already turned off and turning it on doesn't change anything.

I have an AMD 64x2 4200+ with 3GB RAM running Ubuntu 9.10 64 with on board nVidia 6150SE video. It doesn't seem to matter which player I use (MPlayer, Movie Player, VLC, etc.), so I'm wondering if it may be some sort of video configuration problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No DVD Playback In Full Screen Mode

Mar 3, 2010

I followed the wonderful guide in this section with all of the steps and whatnot (I forget what it is called) and I got my DVD player working. I have used both the built in DVD player, and VLC with all the required codecs and whatnot. But when I go to full screen, the player (both of them) crash and I have to eject the disc and start over. It is actually kind of weird because I can resize it larger to a certain extent, but I feel once it gets over about 50-75% of the screen, it crashes.

Debian Multimedia :: Disable Screen Dimming During Video Playback

May 1, 2015

I'm using Gnome as my desktop environment in Debian stable, I have previously address this issue at another post with the solution of setting xset command to disable screen blanking. However I'm still looking for a method that can automatically disable screen fade while watching videos in a browser. I don't want to permanently disable the powersaving idle method. I have both cpufreqd and laptop-mode-tools to conserve my powers.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Card And Older IBM A50 - Playback Movies On My Flat Screen

May 29, 2010

I made a mistake and bought a $50 IBM A50 to use as a media server...Installed Karmic on it and figured out that the video card couldn't handle anything beyond the factory setting of 800:600, something like that...

I have not taken the time to learn about video cards and now I suffer....I found this "solution" EVGA 256-P1-N399-LX GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card

Which has mixed reviews on newegg

I want to use this machines( or another) to playback movies on my flat screen. I suppose I need to find out more about my TV as well...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Playback Freezes Screen Randomly While Sound & Keyboard Works

Feb 12, 2010

i'm using ubuntu since 8.04, and the current (9.10) is a fresh install on new hdd.the problem was the same each version (8.04, 8.10, 9.04, 9.10) - while i'm playing the video (no matter if i use mplayer [smplayer], gstreamer [totem] or adobe flash plugin [videos]) the playback freezes randomly for about 5-10 sec. during the freeze the movie is still played, i can hear the sound is ok. if i press [space] in smplayer it pauses the playback, so the responses for keyboard actions are ok. not for the mouse clicks however. i can still move the cursor around the screen but it seems the system is not aware of it (clicking on the "pause" button doesnt pause the movie). except the cursor, nothing changes on the screen (if the im [pidgin] window was blinking because of new message, it freezes etc etc).

is there any kind of log i could look into just to try figuring out the problem?it is impossible to watch any movie on my pc (currently i don't have tv)i installed windows on external hdd once and it played videos fine so i suppose it's not hardware problem .

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Online Video Streaming Freezes On Full Screen

Nov 25, 2010

I am using ubuntu 10.10 on Dell Inspiron 1525 dual boot with vista. My concern is streaming online videos through websites such as BBC iplayer, sky news, ....., NDTV news channel, etc. Videos are streaming perfectly fine as long as they are not running on full screen but if I try to run them on full screen video freezes (after a few minutes, say 5). Interestingly, sound does not stop. I can still hear the latest news updates but the video does not correspond. Same videos are running fine whether full screen or not in vista.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Full-Screen Video Streaming Lock-up

Oct 15, 2010

When I play a video web stream full-screen, the image randomly freezes. I can still move the mouse and hear the audio, but I can't click on anything, and I can't get out of full-screen. No keyboard commands that I know work, and so I end up having to hold down the power button to kill the machine.

This didn't happen in Ubuntu, so I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue. And I changed the power management settings to do nothing, but it still happens. So, I don't know what the deal is. Should I try a different flash player (I have the adobe player as default)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Annoying Noise When Video Is Played On Full Screen Mode

Feb 20, 2011

recently i installed ubuntu (gnome) 10.10. i'm lovin it but only thing is bugging me is this annoying noise whenever i try to see a video on web or using vlc. i m using dell inspiron 6400. IT has VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility X1400 My glxinfo outcome is :

HTML Code:

name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI

[code]...

now my main problem is whenever i change my visual settings from none to extra , i start getting noise on my usb headphone or even on my speakers especially if i play a video on full screen mode it become worse .. it starts constantly makeing buzzing noise. sometimes even when i minimize or maximize or scroll up down a window...

if i put the visual effects in normal mode i still get the noise on video playing full-screen mood but this is time bit low and on none mode i get the noise too but very low... so i m assuming there must be some problem with my vga card which is causing this chaos. unfortunately there is no driver for my graphics card dat ati supports on ubuntu, so i used gallium 3d project using this ppa https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/radeon .. graphics works fine now but this nosie is killing me ..

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Obnoxious Bar In Smplayer - Full Screen Isn't Full Screen And There Are Black Edges On Both Sides Of The Screen

Jan 25, 2011

This obnoxious bar has just appeared in Smplayer at the top of the screen. It stays there even when I go full screen. Now full screen isn't full screen and there are black edges on both sides of the screen. I have not be able to figure out how to hide it. I do not need or want this onscreen display. How can I configure Smplayer to make this go away? How can I get my 16:9 full screen aspect ratio back? I have done nothing to mplayer or smplayer as far as editing any or changing any configuration files. I tried several videos and it displays on all of them. It was not there last time I used Smplayer.

Fedora :: Movie Player - No Playback In Full Screen Mode

I have most of my movies in .avi/Divx. when I was using Ubuntu the default movie player would play my vids but when I went full screen the movie would just disappear and would have to shut it down and restart it. Just wondering if I will have the same problems with F14/15.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HD Video Playback - Video And Sound Frequently Get Out Of Sync

Oct 17, 2010

When I play large HD videos in mplayer, the video and sound frequently get out of sync, and the video plays a little strangely (occasionally speeding up and occasionally slowing down).

I think it's because mplayer is only running on a single core. As I've got a quad-core processor, it seems inefficient. I've seen that there is theoretically a way to get mplayer to work with multicore setups, but it requires compiling with different options. That'd take me a little while to work through.

Ideally there would be a pre-compiled version in the software centre, or a player which has support built in (again, ideally in the software centre). Is there such a thing available?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Messy Video Playback Also Appears When Use Cheese To Capture Video With My Webcam

Feb 26, 2010

video playback is like I have applied a blueish sepia filter over it. And this is just the playback from totem player or mplayer, and not the playback from ..... (and generally online streaming) - this works just fine. this messy video playback also appears when I use cheese to capture video with my webcam. Note that the preview picture of the video file on nautilus has the natural colours it should have.

at first when I installed the os this particular problem didn't exist, but it came up the time I decided to follow the "comprehensive multimedia guide". So now I have all the pros of following the guide, but this is a major con...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Resolution Seems To Change During Video Playback

Apr 11, 2011

I am setting up a MythTV environment to switch from Windows based MediaPortal (with a high number of disturbing bugs). Yet, I have three difficulties, which I want to discuss with you. They are:

- No audio via HDMI see [URL]
- Video resolution seems to change during video playback
- Channels cannot be found via DVB-S [URL]

As you can see, I have created three posts to keep discussions focused.

Alltogether I have the following setup:

- AMD 5050e CPU
- 8 GByte RAM
- Biostar TA890GXE
- Samsung LE40M86BD, connected via HDMI (and only HDMI)
- Mythbuntu 10.10 with proprietary drivers installed
- Technisat Skystar HD2 DVB-S card (two times)

Now, here is the problem:

Whenever I playback any video material using e.g. VLC, the screen resolution changes. This also applies when playback the video in a window and not fullscreen. The problem is that whenever the screen resolution changes, short time later the TV set blanks screen and show the TV set specific information "unsupported video mode".

How can I enforce to stay in the configured video mode?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: AVI Video Playback Tearing?

Oct 23, 2010

I'm sorry if this was asked before (i know it was but never worked for me) 2 days ago I installed ubuntu 10.10, my very first linux OS and I immediately fell in love with it.The only problem now, is tearing during video playback (I'm a perfectionist with a thing for fine details, so this is literally killing me)

I have nVidia 9200M GS (HP laptop)
I've set nVidia setting to sync vblank and disabled it in compiz
I've also disabled PowerMizer..

I love the system to give up some vsync issues in moving windows, but i just can't get over video tearing. I'm ready to install anything, change anything, even do a new clean install to get it working. UPDATE: Installed SMPlayer, works fine but drops couple of frames every 5 secs or so (more annoying than tearing lol) is there any specific settings that can fix that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ogv And Mp4 Video Playback Looks Scrambled?

Apr 8, 2011

Both MP4 and OGV playback completely weird on my Ubuntu 10.04.2 laptop:

The resolution/length/etc is correct, but the picture is all weird. Webm doesn't work at all.

I tried mplayer, kmplayer, smplayer, gxine, totem and kplayer. All the same.

However, the exact same video's play back normally in HTML5 pages with a bunch of browsers on the same machine. They also play back normally on a Windows machine. There is no DRM involved.

Aren't these gstreamer en mplayer based players supposed to handle this correctly?

This is an Intel Core i3 machine with Intel HD graphics.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Playback On Dell Laptop?

Jan 15, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude CPi that has 400MHz Intel Processor and 256 MB of ram. It has a Neomagic Corporation NM2360 [MagicMedia 256ZX]. I have it set to 16 bit color depth and it is using the neomagic driver. My problem is that it cannot play any video of any size flash, or saved to hard drive. It has a fps so low that I can see it rendering each frame going across the screen. It doesn't seem to have a problem with animated pictures, just actual video files. I don't know whether or not this matters but the card set is known to not support 3d acceleration. I can run any commands in terminal and have a good understanding of the linux environment. This problem has occurred under Ubuntu and Xubuntu and still happens if I use a light weight WM like fluxbox.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: X11 Video Playback Blue Saturation

Feb 21, 2010

When trying to playback DVDs in VLC media player, I have to switch the video output driver to get any playback.If I leave it on "Default" (which I think is defaulting to "XVideo Extension Video Output"), I get a solid green or blue screen (which I also get with "Xvideo Extension Video Output")If I switch it to "OpenGL Video Output", I get proper DVD playback but it is kind of pixelated and ugly.If I switch it to "X11 Video Output", I get DVD playback that is very crisp and sharp, the image quality is great.unfortunately, the colors are completely messed up and the blue is completely saturated.I've played with the color settings (especially the Hue setting), but I can't get the colors to look right.

I'd really like to use the x11 video output since the quality is the best, but I can't get the colors right.the first one (Screenshot.png) is OpenGL output, and the second (Screenshot-1.png) is X11 output.It's also worth noting that I am on an IBM ThinkPad R32 with an ATI Mobility Radeon 7000 (or M6, or M6 LE, whatever you wanna call it).I'm running a fully updated 9.04 Jaunty installation.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Line Flicker During Video Playback?

Apr 3, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu 9.10 and the prime reason for giving it a go is due to the media center capability with apps such as Moovida and LinuxMce.

Unfortunately during video playback [either divx or flash] there appears to be a random line or lines which flickers on the screen when the video is in fullscreen mode.

I'm using an ATI x1900 video card and have tried using both Tote and VLC, and I have also tried installing the fglrx.

But, both with and without flgrx installed, under the section 'Device' in xorg.conf it says that the driver is 'vesa'.

I don't know how to disable the default ATI driver to enable fglrx, or whether I am going off on completely the wrong tanget and should be looking at something else.

Or is there better support for my type of card in Ubuntu 10 as I don't want to go back to Ubuntu 8 which is the last supported version of the os that ATI developed a driver for my card.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Playback Beyond 2048 Pixels?

Apr 26, 2010

I have a 30" LCD with 2560x1600 pixel resolution. I would like to make and play videos at this resolution, but software decode is too slow, and the GPU accelerated decode (VDPAU) maxes out at 2048 pixels. It might be possible to decode 2Kx2K and cut-and-paste and reorganize the rectangles to fill 2560x1600. But someday I plan on getting a 4K screen (4096x2160 pixels) and I would like to support that too. For that it seems two video streams decoded by two GPUs and exactly synchronized would work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Playback Slow In 10.04 But Fast In 9.04?

May 14, 2010

I have two Ubuntus installed. A 10.04 and a 9.04. In 9.04 if I watch a video in Firefox, it works very smoothly and nicely. Using the "top" command, totem-plugin-vi is using the most cpu time at about 16%, and xorg is using about 5%. But in 10.04, totem is using 72% and xorg is using 26%, and it looks really choppy. I think watching DVDs is the same way. I checked "Hardware Drivers" in the System->Administration menu (in 10.04) and it said "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system." I'm guessing maybe I'm using different video drivers on each system, but I don't even know how to check. and here is an excerpt from lspci:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Improve Video Playback - Thinkpad T41?

Jan 2, 2011

after a recent foray into Ubuntu. Every day is a school day at the moment, so please be gentle! I recently obtained an old IBM Thinkpad T41 which I've made dual boot Windows XP and Ubuntu (windows was my backup option - it's installed but with none of the drivers; thankfully I've not yet hit a problem Ubuntu can't handle!) and which is connected up to the TV in our lounge. I have installed XBMC on it, and we're currently enjoying having access to all sorts of multi-media and iPlayer in the lounge. The thinkpad connects to our home network wirelessly, using the Thinkpad's built in wireless hardware - providing a whopping 11Mbps connection. Our media is all stored on NAS on the network, and I thought that even full 54Mbps wireless would not be fast enough to stream videos smoothly onto another machine.

However we have two windows laptops (one windows 7, one windows xp) which have 54Mbps connections and they can stream the videos smoothly from the NAS, so clearly I was wrong (wer'e not talking High def or blue ray rips here or anything). So my first question. Does anyone have an recommendations of a 54Mbps wireless card (PCMCIA preferably) that is compatible with both Ubuntu and the Thinkpad so that I can improve it's connection speed to the network? I have a "Max Value" branded card in the windows xp laptop (bought cheaply from Amazon) that I tried to but failed miserably to get working in the Thinkpad with Ubuntu last night. All hints and tips welcome....

Second question: Improving video playback on the thinkpad. Some of the videos were a bit choppy, which I thought was just to do with video quality. However having been playing them on the windows xp laptop - Sony Vaio PCG-FR215S, so similar in age and processor speed to the thinkpad - they play absolutely perfectly. So what are my options for improving the video playback on the Thinkpad running Ubuntu? - Upgrade memory to 1GB from 512MB? Will this make much difference? The sony has been upgraded to 1GB, which is why I ask the question. Do I have any options on the dedicated graphics processing hardware front? I'm guessing they are severely restricted as it's a laptop, but thought I'd ask as obviously I'd only be interested in something that is supported by Ubuntu.

Nvidia acceleration is enabled in Ubuntu, and in XBMC. The playback quality in XBMC is comparable with using VLC so I don't think there is anything XBMC specific to be concerned with at the moment.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Choppy (flickers) On Playback?

Feb 10, 2011

I just upgraded to Ubuntu Maverick v 10.10 and loving it. However, I have encountered a problem with playing any type of video whether it be Xvid, AVI, h264, MKV or AAC. I have tried many players from smplayer, mplayer, kmplayer, vlc, etc. but I am still having the problems. I have read some posts on here and I've disabled compiz, tried the X11 tweak and updated my Nvidia drivers. I don't know if I am missing some type of codec or restricted plugin because I have ample space and resources are readily available while playing the video.
