    Question Audio & Video Promblems Help Please???

    Hey everyone, once again i am having a problem with ubuntu (still awesome though)


    I am trying to watch some vids and meeting with no success. I can get Youtube to play the vids but not hear sound, and i can get my "other video websites" to play the vid for 1-3 sec, and have to click the spot where it left off and it will last another 2 seconds, and once again not have sound.

    My speakers can play music off my computer but not on the vids.

    Please trust me when i say i have googled for a answer and have tried i guess everything i looked at that was similar to my problem. I will post my aboutlugins information as i am running firefox and you guys would most likely ask.

    Thank you Guys YOU

    Install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package and it should solve everything. Use Synaptics or apt-get to do so, there is no need to look on the internet for it because it's already in the Ubuntu repositories.

    Are you using Ubuntu 9.04? There is a bug that has been affecting video playback (and audio too, in some cases I've heard of).

    Open a terminal and enter this code:
    Code:
    cat /proc/mtrr
    Post the output back here.

    Well the good news is that this output means you are not affected by the bug I thought you might be. The bad news is that we'll probably have to do a few more things to figure out what is going on.

    First, you should try re-installing your flash plug-in. The method will depend on how you installed flash in the first place, but if you installed it through Synaptic, all you need to do is this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer flashplugin-nonfree
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer flashplugin-nonfree

    I'd prefer to do it here if that's ok with you. That way it's documented so other people can read it if they have the same problem.
