    Re: Apple ProRes Codec Support in Ubuntu?

    With a recent mplayer build can play the mplayer sample on 1 setup using a -demuxer mov option
    mplayer -vo xv -demuxer mov /home/doug/Downloads/Boar__Apple_ProRes_422-partial.mov
    On another couldn't, even though both codecs were installed.
    i'm pretty sure it's the versions of those codecs and the working set are the most recent
    Try getting the new set from mplayerhq.hu and totally replacing your current set (don't merge, I'd just delete all the codecs in the /usr/lib/codecs folder and replace w/ all the new codecs.

    Code:
    wget http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/all-20110131.tar.bz2
    or go directly and dl

    Your sample produces a 404, if inclined to re up or happen find a decent one online would be nice to have a sample that lasted longer than the mplayer one does.

    whoo hoo!
    Got the new codecs and the file played! There are some other error messages... but it plays, so all is good.

    Thank you so much, great assistance, much appreciated. (Here is the terminal output in case the errors are significant or relevant)

    Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
    - Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
      - Try -ao sdl or use the OSS emulation of ALSA.
      - Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
    - Slow video output
      - Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
    - Slow CPU
      - Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the lavdopts,
        e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
    - Broken file
      - Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
    - Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
      - Try -cache 8192.
    - Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
      - Try -nocache.

    Sorry about the bad link -- (Careless html... That's why I'm not a programmer.) I'd be happy to provide a longer sample and can put it up at http://samples.mplayerhq.hu/V-codecs/ as well, for others. I'll look for something else next week and see what I can do -- I have a lot of Apple ProRes 422 footage but need to find something more suited to an indefinite lifespan on the internet. (I am exceedingly over-protective of privacy, rights, etc.)

    Gnome mplayer GUI (older version) does not play the file. But I've downloaded the latest version and am working on configuring, building and installing it... I am getting more error messages in trying to do that. But-- as much as I would like to continue getting help here because this you two have been incredibly helpful -- these are problems that at this point I can/should keep working through on my own, to learn more.

    If I get really stuck trying to get Gnome Mplayer working right, I may come back for some tips instead of beating my head against the wall to the point of spilling my brains on the floor. That's such a mess to clean up later.

    I did get gnome-mplayer to play that short sample, will only say that by default it wouldn't. (your idea to try to figure it out yourself is the way to go, if need be then ask.

    Re: Apple ProRes Codec Support in Ubuntu?

    Good news that it all works now . A better sample than the daggy one on the MPlayer site would be nice if you get round to it!
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Re: Apple ProRes Codec Support in Ubuntu?

    You can grab an 11-second sample (97MB) from http://www.io.com/~csperber/AppleProRes422.mov

    Feel free to use or distribute as you wish. I won't keep it up there very long as it's not really a storage server, but I'll leave it there for a few weeks. It is not an ideal sample to evaluate a codec's quality (no motion, low quality audio) but since ProRes422 is not a distribution codec anyway, that shouldn't really be a concern; it is fine for testing functionality.

    I've asked how to make it available through http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/

    Gave up trying to make gnome mplayer play the file... will have to let it simmer in the back of my brain and see what else strikes me to try next time I revisit this puzzle. If you have any hints (besides changing some defaults), I'll take 'em... Next up is to see if I can get mplayer (and gnome mplayer) using vaapi (http://reverserplus.wordpress.com/20...0-on-viliv-n5/) since my intel video chip supports that and my Little Netbook That Could can use all the help it can get.

    Not sure if that means a 'hint' or just tell me....

    For a hint - remember the mplayer option -demuxer mov (Edit...P...

    you can find several threads on a vaapi mplayer - use a google site search on this forum
    ( I use a bookmarks toolbar in fire fox so added a bookmarklet from here, very handy - using the "Google Site Search" one, just dragged to middle of my toolbar

    Thanks for the sample....

    Yes, I did mean "hint," not "tell me," thanks -- I will check into that when I next delve into it. I think in fact I did start going down that road, but can't recall where it ended up; most likely in distraction.

    Appreciate all the help and the tips and playing along with Ubuntu as a puzzle.

    Resurrecting a slightly old thread just to mention that FFmpeg now has an Apple ProRes decoder and this works well with the current svn MPlayer. Great news for those running MPlayer on a 64bit installation...

    Begging the questions, is there any love for those of us using 32 bit still?

    There has always been love codec wise for 32 bit (w32/Win32codecs), what Andrew was meaning is that now 64 bit can get support for this codec.
    (w64codecs is practically worthless
