View Full Version : [ubuntu] can't read mkv file on mac os that were copied from ubuntu

July 18th, 2009, 05:01 PM
i mounted /dev/sda2 for mac os x on /media/mac.
$sudo mount /dev/sda2 /media/mac
$mount -t hfsplus
/dev/sda2 on /media/mac type hfsplus (rw)
$cat /etc/fstab
/dev/sda2 /media/mac hfsplus rw,user,noauto 0 2
and copied some videos into /media/mac. and rebooted into mac osx leopard.
i have mplayer for mac and binary codec packages installed on mac os.
but mplayer couldn't open **.mkv file encoded with x264 that were copied from ubuntu. why? but i could open normal text file created from on ubuntu.

right.. i can play it on ubuntu. but there's some problem with cpu usage when playing videos on ubuntu that i would like to question about later. so for the time being, i want to play those high quality videos on mac.

how can i open those file on mac?
