View Full Version : [ubuntu] problems with mplyer

September 7th, 2009, 08:47 AM
Hi, I can't open a video file (it's an avi file) with mplayer if I double click it, it starts with a error dialog that opens and closes I have no problems with other videos (it's only a specific file) if I open it with the terminal it runs fine but mplayer starts with no options.

Do you have the none free codecs installed?

Synaptic: ubuntu-restricted-extras
Medibuntu: follow the Terminal commands (cut and paste)
