Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dragon Player Doesn't Play DVDs

May 13, 2010

I run lucid. I already have installed Medibuntu and the package libdvdcss2. Nevertheless, I still can't get DragonPlayer to play a DVD properly. Indeed, Dragon starts to play the DVD. However, the image is distorted and you can't recognize anything... This is what the terminal messages say when I start Dragon over the terminal:

norma@norma:~$ dragon --play-dvd /media/cdrom0/
dragonplayer(2265)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "aspect_ratio_menu" with KXMLGUIFactory!
dragonplayer(2265)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "audio_channels_menu" with KXMLGUIFactory!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play .AVIs On Any Media Player

Sep 18, 2010

I am running Ubuntu latest revision, but for the last 2 revs I have had the same problem. I have tried removing and uninstalling all media players, codecs and everything with no luck yet. When I play an AVI it brings up a window saying I need the divx or mpeg-4 codec. Click here to download. When I click it, it tells me it can't find the required drivers. The audio plays but no video. I have installed the codecs from what I can tell. I have seen errors for DivX MPEG-4 Version 5, X-VID MPEG-4, and H.264.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Media Player Won't Play AVI Files?

Apr 13, 2011

VLC Media player has been giving me a few problems and I'm hoping someone here has a fix for this issue.Yesterday I was playing an avi file and my browser, that was also running, froze up in the background. At the same time my video became choppy and started to freeze. I shut down firefox and vlc but when I opened it back up all of my avi files where greyed out. I've posted a request for help on the vlc forums but no one has responded. Has anyone else experienced this problem? It's frustrating because my vlc player will still play dvd's but it won't play any avi files. Oh and I tried the drag and drop option per a suggestion but all I get is sound with no video. Lastly, I should mention that I'm a multi tasker and was also trouble shooting a problem I was having with amarok, which I've since uninstalled. Could amarok have some how screwed up my files? I've even uninstalled an reinstalled vlc but nothing works

General :: Dvd Player Cannot Play Some Dvds - Says - Dvd Decrypter Missing

Jun 13, 2011

I have a thinkpad with an ibm cd-rw/dvd player. It will play some dvds; others identify the disk but will not play; then the message is that a dvd decrypter is missing. The difference seems to be that a recent dvd will not play, but older ones -- at least the content is older -- play without a problem. The video program on the machine just says "movie player."

General :: Use A Media Player Just To Play Files From An IPod Device

Mar 4, 2011

I have an ipod classic 160gb, that I sync with my machine at home.

I use Linux at work, and want to just plug my ipod and just listen to the tracks, with all the playlists and such. I don't want to sync nothing, I just want to listen to the tracks as if I was using the ipod itself.

Why? Because this way I can use the usb port.

So, I don't want to manage my ipod in Linux, I just want to listen to the tracks on it in Linux, like it was a local library but it's instead in my ipod.

(I've tried gtkpod, it works to show my files, but I can't play, shuffle, etc. It would be interesting to have a complete audio software to handle everything like it was a local library)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Play DVDs / What's Going On?

Aug 24, 2010

When I put a DVD in either of my two drives, the movie will not play using either VLC or Movie Player.

When I go to 'Open Disc' in VLC, next to 'Disc Device' it lists a string of two very odd characters, ��, as the only option. The drop-down arrow doesn't work. When I click on 'Browse' and navigate to the name of the movie (which I assume is the drive) in the 'Places' menu, nothing happens.

In Movie Player, when I go to Movie > Play Disc "(Insert Movie Name Here)", I get the following error message: "Could not read from resource"

The same thing happens with either drive, with either of two DVDs.

DVDs seem to play fine in Windows XP using VLC.

What's going on here?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Still Won't Play

Jun 8, 2011

I've installed libdvdcss2 (using these instructions), but still can't play encrypted DVDs. It appears to be an encryption thing, because I can play backed-up/decrypted DVDs. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, 64 bit. Another user here got it working by installing Ubuntu from scratch, then going straight to install medibuntu and libdvdcss, but that's not a realistic option for me at this point.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Will Not Play With Any Application

Jan 22, 2010

DVDs will not play with any app., however, all play fine in Linux Mint (dual booting here) with a straight install.

VLC gives me the following error message:
Playback failure:
VLC cannot set the DVD's title. It possibly cannot decrypt the entire disc.
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.
Playback failure:
VLC cannot set the DVD's title. It possibly cannot decrypt the entire disc.
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.

Again, I'm not trying to rip or decrypt anything, just play. All DVD & players give me the same results in Ubuntu, but all play fine in Linux Mint.
