  1. Re: Why is "Videos" preinstalled, but not the needed codecs?

    Another vote here for mpv which has taken off where the venerable MPlayer foundered. Extra bonus is a nice integration with SMPlayer so a gui is also possible...

    Re: Multiple Desktop Environments

    It dows not have to be this way, although this is certainly true for Ubuntu. An example where things are a lot easier is Slackware where a simple ncurses interface (xwmconfig) allows painless...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: tar backup stops after backup file is exactly 25Gb

    Interestingly enough 'officially' there should be no file size limit at all. The table at the base of this page shows some of the historical versions of tar and the limits. Unlimited size for all...

    [ubuntu] Re: Program for web page creation

    There is always a case for going 'old school' and learning HTML and CSS with a text editor, even if this is only in the early stages. If you go down this road Geany is a good choice (I use this)...
  6. Re: New PC: Ryzen 5 2400G and Gigabyte B450 M a good choice?

    Fair enough, I have only just finished selling off my own Athlon system so I know where you are coming from. It is actually a little surprising how much these older systems can accomplish with a...
  7. Re: New PC: Ryzen 5 2400G and Gigabyte B450 M a good choice?

    Is this still a good time to buy a 2400G when the 3400G has just come out? Certainly if you are after a bargain the 2400G prices should be substantially lower now...
  8. Re: Firefox videos play with very slow audio

    Plays fine here with the latest Firefox Quantum 68.0.1. I believe that Firefox will use system FFmpeg for playback with some media files and this my be the issue on your system. FWIW I have a system...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How to download version 3 of ffmpeg on Ubuntu 16.04

    I still potter around with the site :). I love writing HTML and I was taught to be a little pedantic with it in the early days, this has paid off with simple HTML that renders well in different...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: How to download version 3 of ffmpeg on Ubuntu 16.04

    The addition of a tiling option has meant encoding speed has picked up a little, not immensely though I confess. A 15 minute lossless video took about 10 hours here with 2 pass, some early thoughts...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Is there a lame equivalent program for creating .flac audio files?

    I have only just now realised that this conf file does not really have a direct link so I have amended this with this link... On my next days off I will add a few words about using abcde in the...
  12. Re: 19.04 (Disco Dingo) Known Bugs and Workarounds

    It is not a bug as such (although it certainly bugs me!) but Debian and Ubuntu have officially dropped my favourite text editor Leafpad from their repositories and this is seen first for Ubuntu in...

    [xubuntu] Re: .MOD files - fix aspect ratio

    Thanks for that! You can simply alter the Display Aspect Ratio (DAR) with FFmpeg and copy the audio and video codecs over. Catch being that as far as I am aware FFmpeg does not support writing to a...

    Thanks guys, looks like the experimental support for ogg embedding at least works! I shall probably slide back into quietness on the abcde front for a while now. Until the next little thing tweaks my...

    Hmmmm..... I am not sure about that then. You need xxd and base64 but this are part of an Ubuntu base install. Mediainfo does not show an embedded file?

    I had a great start with Ubuntu Hoary Hedgehog but I confess that my day to day work is with Slackware these days. Still enjoy these Forums as well as AskUbuntu :)
