    Playing VP7 encoded ogg video in 64-bit Kubuntu

    Hi,

    I've just installed 64-bit 10.04 on a computer, and I think i've installed all of the codecs that I can find, but mplayer can't find the codec for a selection of my videos. On my 32-bit Karmic machine they play fine.

    What have I missed?

    relevant outputs

    Code:
    mediainfo <filename>
    
    {snip irrelevant output}
    
    Video
    ID                               : 0 (0x0)
    Format                           : VP7
    Codec ID                         : VP70
    Codec ID/Hint                    : On2
    
    {snip irrelevant output}
    Code:
    mplayer <filename>
    
    [Ogg] stream 0: video (FOURCC VP70), -vid 0
    
    Ogg file format detected.
    VIDEO:  [VP70]  640x352  12bpp  23.976 fps    0.0 kbps ( 0.0 kbyte/s)

    It would seem that VP7, and other codecs such as Indeo 5, are not supported on a 64 bit systems yet. You will need to convert them on a 32 bit system.

    As mentioned atm (or forever..?) vp7 decoding is only available thru w32codecs and mplayer,
    Saw some mention of it in latest gstreamer release notes but don't see support

    ffmpeg: ffdec_vp5: FFmpeg On2 VP5 decoder
    ffmpeg: ffdec_vp3: FFmpeg On2 VP3 decoder
    Your only hope for future support would lie with ffmpeg (doubtful) and or gstreamer - w64codecs are worthless and will most likely remain so.

    If really important you could build yourself a 32 bit mplayer - takes about 20 min.'s or so.

    Using VirtualBox 3.2.0 and a 32 bit virtual install of 10.04, I converted a vp7 codec video to xvid using mencoder. It is a little work, but the end result is videos that I can view. Going to have to try Indeo 5 to xvid next.
