View Full Version : [lubuntu] mplex

May 15th, 2010, 05:29 AM
Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to burn a DVD video using Brasero however when I hit the burn button, I get a message telling me that I need mplex to continue. I've installed mjpegtools, etc but the message continues to appear. Is there any way I would be able to download mplex to get my movie to burn?

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

I'm having this problem too.

So, reply four on that thread says the following:

"From: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-burning/2009-January/007212.html
You need to install: "gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse and libavcodec-unstripped-52"
Also install dvdauthor."

I installed dvdauthor using the Ubuntu Software Center. I tried to install libavecodec-unstripped-52 from the Medibuntu package site but nothing seems to be happening when I click "click to install." I'm not sure how to do the rest.

Can anyone give a few more detailed suggestions for us absolute beginners?

I found a fix here: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1523005.html

The first response worked for me, which was to enter the following in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse
