View Full Version : [ubuntu] Movie Player Crashes Hardy

May 19th, 2008, 04:42 PM
This has happened many times at random times, when I play movies or music files with Totem Movie Player 2.22.1, Hardy sometimes (not always) crashes. By crashes I mean, that I cant do anything, not even Ctrl Alt Fx, even when I press Caps Lock it doesnt turn on/off (light doesnt change)
so the only option I get is to manually turn off the PC (force turn off)

What is happening ? Why does this happen sometimes? When does this happen? What is ths?

i fixed totem by going into synaptic and removing everything totem. then installed mplayer, mozilla-mplayer and vlc. problem solved. i cant help you if you are hell bent on keeping totem. (which is not a good app imo)

well if you have totem gstreamer remove it and perhaps replace it with totem xine.
as for replacing it I have a few suggestions:
Mplayer GUI
