    Re: I have problem on playing some video

    Mind you a recent copy of the svn MPlayer had no trouble at all in playing this file. I attach a screenshot...

    Re: I have problem on playing some video

    I have tested this on Raring Ringtail with a self-built copy of MPlayer and no external codeca, Guide is here if you are interested:

    Always glad for that, this guide ha been running for many years but has been a little less popular lately as Ubuntu satisfies media needs a little better...

    Re: I have problem on playing some video

    In the lubuntu raring i386 (installed from the desktop iso daily build 2013-04-21) I tried but could not find the package libggi-target-fbdev

    Code:
    tester@kollen:~$ sudo apt-get -y install libaa1-dev libasound2-dev libcaca-dev libcdparanoia-dev libdca-dev libdirectfb-dev libggi-target-fbdev libenca-dev libesd0-dev libfontconfig1-dev libfreetype6-dev libfribidi-dev libgif-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libjack-jackd2-dev libopenal1 libpulse-dev libsdl1.2-dev libsvga1-dev libvdpau-dev libxinerama-dev libxv-dev libxvmc-dev libxxf86dga-dev libxxf86vm-dev librtmp-dev libsctp-dev libass-dev libfaac-dev libsmbclient-dev libtheora-dev libogg-dev libxvidcore-dev libspeex-dev libvpx-dev libschroedinger-dev libdirac-dev libdv4-dev libopencore-amrnb-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev libmp3lame-dev liblivemedia-dev libtwolame-dev libmad0-dev libgsm1-dev libbs2b-dev liblzo2-dev ladspa-sdk libopenjpeg-dev libfaad-dev libmpg123-dev libopus-dev libbluray-dev libaacs-dev libgtk2.0-dev

    I updated&upgraded, but still no go.

    What do you suggest next?

    Edit: I continued anyway, but got this error

    On my Raring build this is available. Try the following command:

    Code:
    andrew@corinth:~$ apt-cache search libggi-target-fbdev
    libggi-target-fbdev - General Graphics Interface direct access framebuffer target
    and this might throw some light on the missing package. I suspect the following error:

    means that the listed dependencies, and their dependencies, have not been successfully downloaded. (Probably because of the libggi-target-fbdev error).

    It is easier to have only one copy of MPlayer installed at a time. I had not realised that the default MPlayer installation now actually installs the fork MPlayer2, seems like an odd arrangement...

    mc4man as usual has the answer, a late scratching:

    so simply omit this dependency, I have altered the guide to suit...

    Re: I have problem on playing some video

    Interestingly the file doesn't play in any player in Ubuntu 12.04 (vlc complains no codec for h264 even though an updated version of x264,--self compiled,-- is installed), mplayer (from MOTU ppa) and mplayer2 (self compiled) plays only audio and totem is completely useless), but in Debian SID both totem and mplayer2 (from the debian multimedia repo I think) work, I have a self compiled version of ffmpeg and x264 there though, don't know if it has anything to do with it. Haven't tested vlc on Debian, am planning to compile it in a few days.


    EDITED: More strange, I compiled mplayer2 from git in Debian and it doesn't open the file (only audio) just like in Ubuntu..

    Now I succeeded in compiling your version of mplayer in Lubuntu Raring, and it can play amam's file (the lecture about Steroid Hormone Biosynthesis).

    Thank you

    Edit: I continued to test this version of mplayer, and it can play all the video files I tested. But a difficult MTS file (with a lot of motion in the picture) directly from my video camera, 1920x1080, 50 fps progressive, 28 Mb/s was too much, it lagged behind without vdpau. Mplayer2 can play that without issues, so it is faster. This mplayer can play the difficult file without issues using vdpau. It complains, but plays well '**** Your system is too SLOW to play this! ****'

    This version of mplayer can also play simplified versions of the 'difficult MTS file' without issues. A file with the same frame size and frame rate (1080-50p), but reduced bitrate, 9.2 Mb/s, and encoded with x264 (made in ffmpeg) is close to the threshold. And smaller or easier video formats play well

    I tested it in an aging HP xw8400 workstation with 2x2 xeon processors with a newer nvidia geforce gt430 card.

    Maybe mplayer2 is the default player in Lubuntu because it is the fastest one, and Lubuntu is often used in old and slow computers. I don't think mplayer comes with Ubuntu, and I don't remember about the other flavours. But I usually install it because I like it, also in other flavours of Ubuntu.
