Ubuntu Multimedia :: Vlc Image - Playing Wmv And Vob Files - Image Comes With High Contrast Colors
Jan 16, 2011
When playing dvd's, vob files and wmv files, the image comes with high contrast colors ,very intense red/green/blue. very dark too. I have vlc 1.1.4 installed, using ubuntu 10.10, libdvdcss2 installed. for the rest of the video formats it seems to work fine. any ideas on what should I start debugging?
I have noticed on a couple of the newer installs I have done, that the Skydome image is faded. It appears to have about 35% lower contrast than it should. I always use the same one, I have compared it to the local file, I am a professional photographer, so I can say it has nothing to do with the image itself, but rather it is some hidden setting somewhere, as I have tried cranking up the image's native contrast, and nothing changes.This happened before, and in the course of normal compiz tweaking, it went away, but I would like to figure out where that is, as CCSM has so many settings, and it may not even be a compiz setting, but rather a system setting. I just do not know.
since I installed ubuntu 9.10, my video files, specially .avi, are showing up on every player with a high contrast or too much brightness... So i have to go t vlc and adjust the image... =/ I'd like to know how can I make the video files running normally as I used to do at 8.10...
I have the scanner HP Scanjet 2400 installed on a machine with K/Ubuntu 10.10 and I use the software Simple Scan to scan image. Problem: The image scanned by this scanner comes with a inversion of colors (what was supposed to be orange is blue ; the white sheet of paper that I've put inside it was not in the blank color when I scanned it too)... My Question: Is this a configuration problem (I did not configured this scanner at any way, so it's working by the Ubuntu drivers itself without my intervention)? Is there any way to solve it?
I get a window that shows a broken image which shifts to the left in bits - top half, bottom quarter, etc. - and the colours flicker wildly in separate parts of the image. The shell from which it was launched gives this output: Any of the controls I try gives me errors, such as:
Set Auto Exposure on error Set Auto Exposure on error Set Auto Exposure on error Set Auto Exposure on error
I closed this program and ran kopete, which showed me no image at all but gave this output on the shell: Calling appendChild() on a null node does nothing. Calling appendChild() on a null node does nothing. Calling appendChild() on a null node does nothing.
I've had this odd, stubborn problem that seems to be related to the nouveau video driver and certain kernel builds: opening or saving full resolution jpeg image files using GIMP takes from 1-5 minutes and causes xorg CPU usage to reach almost 100%.This also occurs when using UFRaw to open Canon raw image files. The problem is not intermittent, it happens each time I open a file. Opening photos in the default image viewer works fine.This bug has vexed me on and off for the last couple of months, and seems to be triggered by a combination of kernel version and the Nouveau driver. I switched to Debian Squeeze from Ubuntu 10.04 because I was experiencing slow image open times in Ubuntu 10.04 (using the Nouveau driver).I did not experience the bug running Squeeze with the nv driver and kernel 2.6.32-3.
I did not have the bug running Squeeze with the nouveau driver and kernel 2.6.32-5 backported from Sid.I began experiencing the bug again after the Squeeze updates on June 14th (still running nouveau and kernel 2.6.32-5). I update daily so it's likely to be that day's updates which caused the bug to reappear.Just for grins, I installed the Liquorix kernel. The bug does not occur using kernel 2.6.34-0.dmz.10-liquorix-686 and the nouveau video driver.I have a Nvidia FX5500 video card. I prefer the nouveau driver to nv as my display seems to behave better. The Nvidia proprietary drivers are not an option because they produce X freezes when I am doing photo editing. The liquorix kernel seems to be working fine, but for long-term stability I'd rather be running a mainline Debian kernel.
When i try to play HD (even with 720p) video the CPU load is almost 100%. I'm using vlc player and the movie is barely watchable. If i switch to Movie Player, the CPU load is slightly decreased, but after 2-3 minutes the audio goes out of sync, so no solution there. I have an nvidia 8600gt graphics card and the proper driver installed, every compiz effect works flawlessly without the slightest increase in CPU load and a dual core 2,1 GHz AMD processor. It shouldn't be a hardware issue.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Gateway LT3103u. I noticed shortly into using it that it has a graphics bug every so often. Especially when I change the background image. Everything will change to a warped mix of colors and pixels. Everything is affected. My mouse, the bar at the top of the screen, text and all. My netbook runs on an AMD Athlon 64-bit processor with ATI Radeon X1270 HyperMemory up to 256MB graphics.
So far I have tried reinstalling, and even the 64bit desktop edition which had the same problem. Ive noticed that it freaks out when i scroll too quick, when changing background images, and on certain websites. Then other times its completely random. When it happens it looks similar to these: [URL]
I am having hard time playing a high definition video file (.mp4), the video initially plays fine, but after 5 mins, it starts to skip and stutter, (I use Movie Player with some codes that Ubuntu installed when I first tried to play file) I have a Dell XPS M1330 Intel Core Duo @2.20 GHz with 4 GB RAM.
I was given a forensic Image which I now know is a DD image of the drive (Vista) and am trying to mount the image or extract the image to another drive. I'm not sure of the extention type or if the image is a partition or the entire drive. I think it is the entire drive.
Is it possible to mount a DD image to a device. If I can't do that I just want to extract the files to run some programs against the drive. Can I view the files under Ubuntu or do I have to remove the drive and stick it into a Vista computer.
I purchased a second drive today and was hoping the command line would be something simple.
Or am I on the wrong track, should I be doing this all in a windows environment. The reason I picked ubuntu was because of the reporting tools.
I have just exported 3 png files out of gimp for a html document I'm working on right now, and they are all almost the same, except I need each to load when the user does something. So the first image will display on the page, and when a user puts their cursor over it, then it will load image 2. When they press it, it loads image 3.
I would like to change my startup image (usplash image). For that i change /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu_logo.png and /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu_logo16.png. Then the splash screen of shutdown screen changes .But booting screen doesnot change.
I have a Canon iR3570/iR4570 PXL, and installed the driver CQue 1.0 TCP/IP Queue from Canon webpage.
The problem: - if i try to print an OpenOffice or LibreOffice Calc with an image and text, the image is not printed (the space is blank). - if i try to print an OpenOffice or LibreOffice Calc with just an image, it's printed great. - if i try to print an OpenOffice or LibreOffice Impress, the images are not printed but the text is printed great.
Iam looking for an Image viewer that lets me delete images through an 'delete' button/option in toolbox.. Most of the image viewers uses edit menu-->delete option,but iam looking for an direct link,clicking on which deletes the image currently open in image viewer ???
WTF why is it with every update the devs try to break something. Might as well be using Ubuntu at this point and No I do not want to install Stable. Todays updqate would bring in linux-image-2.6.39-1-686-pae linux-image-686-pae, but my CPU Single core Intel Pentium M (-UP-) cache 1024 KB flags (sse sse2) bmips 1196.07 clocked at 600.00 MHz doesn't use PAE so it told me to remove linux-image-686 and to install linux-image-486. So more shiny crap that doesn't support older hardware, it is getting to be as bad as Microsoft.
Why don't I just go upgrade or buy new hardware with every new shiny crap that wants to upgrade. If it isn't broken do NOT fsck with it.
i would like to burn an image to a dvd but the image file is in .mdf format like that of many images created in alcohol 120%. what do i need to do in windows to burn such an image or be able to read the file?
I need a command that will check the size (visual size, not file size) of every image in a folder and its sub folders, and make a copy (or even better, a hard link) of that file in a second directory if the image is larger than 1920x1080 pixels (in both dimensions, not just total area). Also, lots of these file names have spaces, so the command needs to be space-tolerant
I'm guessing I would need to use one of the imagemagick commands and find, but I'm not sure where to start. I'm still reading man pages, but I thought someone here might save me some time.
I have an issue with a PC (XP pro)that had a virus which deleted all the files in the windows/system32/config folder. I first attempted to do the second repair option on the XP cd and it wasn't available. So unable to boot to windows and run an anti-virus; I put the hard drive in my external enclosure. Plugged it into my ubuntu laptop and removed the virus infected files using Clam. I then tried using the XP cd in the first repair to copy the files only to get an access denied msg.
I would like to just copy necessary data from the drive with XP pro installed and then reinstall XP and give the PC back to the owners. However the person that did the original install used a volume license cd and I unfortunately have no more CD keys and hate using cracks in certain business environments. So I came up with good idea at the time to setup XP pro in virtual box and then copy the files from there however those files are in use when the machine is running and can't be copied. So is there anyway to mount the Virtual hard drive and copy the files while the virtual machine is off?
Recently, I made a disk image of my external hard drive (as it had recently failed). I have yet to get it replaced, so I have a .dd file sitting on my computer. Now, I can mount the .dd file so I can access the files, but I cannot delete any of them. I want to be able to copy the files file by file to my normal folders and delete them from the backup file, as my disk isn't large enough for me to copy them all to the folders and just delete the entire file.
TL;DR = Can I/How do I delete individual files from a .dd backup.
I have a gziped dd image backup of my entire hda drive (osx and ext4 partitions) that I created with the following command: dd if=/dev/sda |gzip > image032810.gz Can I mount this image file to pull off individual files from individual partitions?
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. I need to find the icon image files used by the Gnome panel tray apps, specifically, Banshee (see attached screenshot). It's not in /usr/share/pixmaps, as that banshee icon is used for the panflute launch button, not the Banshee tray icon. I imagine it would be where all the other tray icons are (volume, battery, etc). I'm looking for it so I can try editing it to fix the white background.
I am trying to upload some pics on my Facebook account using Firefox. When I click on Facebook's file upload icon, Firefox bring up a 'File Upload' window. I noticed that smaller image file is previewed on the lower right hand corner, while bigger image file is not. Is there anyway I can change this behavior or maybe change what Firefox is using to browse my files?
I just downloaded a computer game which I have never done before even when I had windows and my Ubuntu ( Linux ) used "Transmission" to download it. It downloaded to my desktop and now I have a folder with two files in it on my desktop that when I open say "Write to Disk" and gives me the different options. But I read in the comments on the game I downloaded that I can access ISO and other CD-image files using a program called Daemon Tools which is a windows program used as a virtual CD-Rom Drive. How can I do something like this with Linux?
