    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    I think I am getting the hang of ubuntu. After many formats and tips and tricks I am able to finally say that my system is actually working. Totem works good, VLC does not. VLC still has some major hurdles to overcome, like becoming user friendly is one example. One can install all the necessary plugins and the thing still doesn't work. Thanks Nathan for all your help.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    This is re: Part 1. I have left out certain packages from the command provided, like those for Flash and Java, because they are installed and working correctly -- well, almost. I can watch YouTube videos within my browser, but not .flv files that I downloaded from the web. But the bigger issue here is, I cannot play mp3 files. Initially, I though the normal method would work... open file and let it ask permission to search for plugin, etc... I did that and gstreamer-bad (or was it ugly?) was installed, yet the file wouldn't play (even after reboot). It still says that an MP3 decoder is required! So I uninstalled the plugin and went with the command provided at the beginning of the thread. Still, mp3 does not play. And similarly for the flv files.

    Code:
    navneeth@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get remove gnash gnash-common mozilla-plugin-gnash swfdec-mozilla && sudo apt-get install alsa-oss faac faad gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse gstreamer0.10-pitfdll libmp3lame0

    Any help, guys?(my previous post)

    A/V Media and this Ubuntu installation of 9.04 doesn't seem to work all that well. I can't use mp3, nor can I stream anything from Firefox. (I have gnome-mplayer as per the instructions.) Gnome Mplayer works, -- in the sense that it opens, unlike the normal Mplayer, which segfaults -- but when I go to a stream's page, it just says "Stopped" in the progress bar, and nothing happens further. Also, when I choose xll and alsa/pulse in the Preferences, they don't stay there when I open it again. Both the fields are blank.

    As with the apple.com site linked to in the original post, it seems to load something (caching the video trailer, I suppose), and after it reaches 100%, it just stays blank. No audio, either.

    I hate to say this, but this $u(!<$!

    I'm not sure what you mean - did you read and follow my video conversion section? All you should need is FFmpeg and WinFF, then convert the videos to FLV and upload them with YouTube itself.

    You're getting this issue from a fresh install? Which apps have you tried playing MP3s and FLVs with?

    Just noticed you posted again.

    Anywho, what sucks? This howto works - simple as that. I've used it myself on 4 Ubuntu versions now.

    It works for me too. I think the user might need to check 'dmesg' or some log files to see where the segfault started. Make sure your hardware isn't an issue.

When I was using Heron 8.04, I did not have this problem and did not have to make any changes to the display settings. My video card is an ATI Radeon Express 1150. I installed the ATI Catalyst Control Center which completely screwed up my graphics. All I could see was a few colored blocks so I had to reinstall the OS. Has anyone else run into this issue or know the solution? Any helps would be appreciated.
    Any ideas on this?
