    [all variants] Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    I presumed a background apt-get update would execute after the Getdeb and Playdeb packages are installed to add the repos. Anywho, I may abandon this howto as the rules on post editing mean I can't...

    Re: Unable to edit howto

    I don't have to "edit the opinion" as I'm not turning it into a wiki, I'm happy with keeping it in the forum. People changing my howto would be a pain, not a benefit anyway. Didn't come here for a...

    Re: Unable to edit howto

    I don't think my howto can be a wiki, as it contains opinion and not just troubleshooting tips and tricks. Plus the fact wiki implies others will be making changes to it.

    Re: Unable to edit howto

    Seems a bit odd for stickies. Ubuntu changes, packages change, etc, so howtos will need updating.

    Unable to edit howto

    I was in the middle of editing my howto and upon attempting to save a few minor changes, a box popped up stating that my post is now too old and can't be edited anymore. The option/button to edit the...

    Yes, the movie should play automatically. Seems like the disc isn't being recognised as a playback DVD. Not sure how I can help you at the moment.

    What needs updating? The only change I was gonna make was perhaps adding XBMC Media Centre to the install commands, plus maybe a helpful FFMPEG command for converting videos to the MP4 format.

    VLC makes use of libdvdcss2 if it's installed. If some DVDs don't work, either they're not supported yet, there's a problem with your DVD player or libdvdcss2 isn't installed.

    Rhythmbox seemed to rip very carefully when I tested it, whereas Sound Juicer ripped in hyper mode, hence the name I guess.

    I don't think Medibuntu contains packages for PPC anymore. I recommend...

    It's available from Getdeb. Rubyripper works in a similar way to EAC, so it's basically cdparanoia plus checks made to compare at least two rips.

    Just so people know, aside from a couple of pointless additions and personal faves, this command will change the default Firefox audio/video plugin and installs Sound Juicer instead of Rubyripper. I...

    Re: First time Linux User (youtube video)

    I'm probably not the best one to debate this with, as I think Ubuntu is already easy to use. It's not gonna stop changing and evolving either.

    Google stated previously that deleted usernames never become available for re-use, so they've obviously realised that policy was already causing problems and changed it.
