Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pics - Video Color Is Much Better In Windows

Apr 15, 2011

Open these in separate tabs and compare for yourself: Windows - Ubuntu As far as I know, this color difference between Windows and Ubuntu has existed for years. I mean I have had countless installations of XP's and 7's, and I've tried several versions of Ubuntu. Always noticed that color difference.

I don't know which color is "normal", but I like Windows' way better. How can I achieve this result on Ubuntu? The pictures are both taken in VLC with default configuration. I'd be happy to provide more data, if needed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Color Is Very Blue?

Aug 16, 2010

I must have inadvertently changed a color setting in Ubuntu. Suddenly, the color in all video that I play is distinctly blue (human skin is shades of blue and green). This happens to multiple videos in both VLC and Movie Player. It does not happen when I play the same videos on VLC in Windows. Pictures and all other graphics appear completely normal. I am still quite new to Ubuntu and I've never encountered anything like this before. I have no idea where to start

Software :: Recording Video / Pics From Webcam Or Streaming

Jun 7, 2011

I have a USB webcam connected to a server (dmesg output below). It is currently running Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS server edition. So it has no X, and I don't want to install any. What I am looking for is a command line program to capture video from this webcam and store it. Also, something that can capture just pictures would be nice (but once I have a video file, I know how to get individual pictures from that). A nice plus would be setting this up as a video stream for other computers to stream the video from (to do what they can do with a stream, like view it in real time, capture individual pictures, save it). If setting up a stream makes the capture part easier, I could go for that. This camera works in the cheese GUI program on a desktop. Colors are bad in bright lights, but then, it's a cheap camera.

I prefer the output/stream in a free/libre video format (vp8/webm, ogg/theora, or dirac), but other formats that Linux software exists for (to record and play) can work if the free ones can't be done. Google finds lots of GUI ways to do this (mostly references to cheese). I did find one page that suggests "mencoder". But it doesn't find this webcam. I found a camera stream server called "camserv". It seems to find this camera, but then freezes. When I start camserv, the camera's blue light goes off, but no video is ever delivered from a web page reference. When I stop it, the camera is in an unusable state and has to be unplugged to reset it (so it can be used with "cheese"). So I'm looking for other software.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem - Video Stays On Top Of Drop Down Menus And Video Remains When Change Windows?

May 30, 2011

this happens with both VLC and Totem, when in either of those programs playing a video, if I click on one of the top menus, say View in Totem, the video stays on top of the drop down options. In order to see the options I have to hover over them with the mouse at which point they become momentarily visible. I read a post somewhere where someone had a similar problem and it was solved by reinstalling Compiz, but I've tried uninstalling it entirely, reinstalling it, etc. and none of it works. It doesn't happen with flash videos in firefox, it does happen with visualisations in Totem, and it only started happening since I upgraded to 11.04.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lives Basics Including Slide Show And Still Pics?

Edit -> Multitrack mode seems to be where multiple movies can be placed. I do not seem to be able to place the still images on here. Maybe I can and they just don't show up on the timeline well.

I'm a little new to ubuntu. I installed a video driver and after restarting I got as far as the login screen where I saw that the driver did not work: screen is mostly black with random bars of color. I was only able to restart in recovery mode mode. I tried the fix graphics option, which did not work and also some commands that I've seen posted in other threads. So far, still cannot delete the problematic driver or boot up normally successfully.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Video Looks So Crappy Compared To Windows?

Feb 2, 2011

first of all im new to OpenSuse i have been using different distros since early 90's if theres one i havent tried i would be very surprised anyway im very picky when it comes to sound and picture maybe its the fact that im a developer and also art director anyhoo i got tired of my HTPC ( windows ) i thought linux has to be able to do it just as well i mean i only use it for movies and music but was surprised to see how video works in linux picture is somewhat ok compared to Windows but movement is another story even vsync off it looks like a old VHS tape when it should be DVD. Cam-panning is even worse. How is this and can it be fixed?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 82845G Video - Totem Received X Windows System Error

May 13, 2010

My parents have a 8 yr old computer, and they have been running linux for the last 2 years- our graphics card has been a nightmare. It has not worked right....since we first installed 7.10. In 9.04 it could still halfway play DVD's & videos (just barely). No longer in 10.04- Mplayer, totem, xine & VLC die when you try to play a video- any video.

And here's what I get(in terminal):
The program 'totem' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'. (Details: serial 89 error_code 11 request_code 132 minor_code 19). (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Software :: Screen App / Retain BG / Color Background Color Gets Lost

Jul 6, 2009

I am using the screen app, and have set bce to on, and issued the following commands to set my background and foreground color: tput setab 4; clear; tput setaf 7; clear;

This temporarily sets everything properly on my screen. However, when I issue any commands that change or set their own background color (for example, when I issue an "ls" command with colorized output), the background color gets lost for any new output and I have to reissue the commands listed above in order to retrieve my background color.Ideally I'd like to keep my background color when issuing these commands, as it serves as a good way to remind me of what environment I am currently issuing commands in.

General :: Which Codec And Video Tool For Highly Compatible Video On Windows?

Mar 18, 2011

I'm looking for a Linux tool that allows me to transcode videos to a video codec that is highly compatible to the Windows platform. We produce large scientific videos from measurements and would like to show those videos during presentations and submit the videos to journals. We want to be as compatible as possible (we can not influence for example the codes installed on the presentation system or on the journal reviewers system).

Virtualdub suggests one of these codecs:
* Radius Cinepak
* Intel Indeo R3.2
* Microsoft Video 1

We tried ffmpeg, mencoder and Virtualdub under wine, none of those tools could produce videos encoded with the aforementioned codecs.
