    is there another way ?

    hi everybody. I just wanna know how can I play WMA format on lucid. i knew that i can install w32codecs from medibuntu . but i don't want to install something from somewhere else , i want to keep what synaptic & ubuntu software center has. it means that i want to install jusy things provided by ubuntu. another question , while searching on google to see some tips and tutorial about ubuntu . i see too many people show you some tips and gave links to some package deb format. i just wanna know is that safe or secure. how can i know that those script and packages that those people tell are from a trustfull source

    Medibuntu is kept by Ubuntu, IIRC. Have you installed ubuntu-restricted-extras?

    Is this audio file something you purchased on windows?

    If the windows media audio file is copy-protected, then it won't work (this is by design - they don't want you to copy it or play it in an "unauthorised" way)
    Code:
    while [ true ]; do CY=$(date +%y); CM=$(date +%m); if [ -n "$PY" ] && [ -n "$PM" ]; then echo "Ubuntu ${CY}.${CM} is the worst release ever"; echo "I'm going back to ${PY}.${PM}"; fi; PY="$CY"; PM="$CM"; sleep 182d; done

    I have installed vlc and almost all the video codec.

    the file is a blender video tutorial .

    this a screenshot about the video :



    well, i'm using lucid , i don't want to install any windows programm , i just wanna use what i have on synaptic package manager. i'm against wine tips . it's personal opinion.

    4 Mb for a video file is incredibly small
    Are you sure you've got the complete file?
    Code:
    while [ true ]; do CY=$(date +%y); CM=$(date +%m); if [ -n "$PY" ] && [ -n "$PM" ]; then echo "Ubuntu ${CY}.${CM} is the worst release ever"; echo "I'm going back to ${PY}.${PM}"; fi; PY="$CY"; PM="$CM"; sleep 182d; done

    I don't know if it's complete but I can't hear the sound . but no image.

    when i tried to play it on vlc I can hear just the sound but no image.

    but when I tried to play it on movie player . it gave me an option to search for the plugin.

    at the end , gave me this :



    if there aren't any solution for that , it's okey , i'm gonna look for another tutorial .

    where did you get the video from?
    Code:
    while [ true ]; do CY=$(date +%y); CM=$(date +%m); if [ -n "$PY" ] && [ -n "$PM" ]; then echo "Ubuntu ${CY}.${CM} is the worst release ever"; echo "I'm going back to ${PY}.${PM}"; fi; PY="$CY"; PM="$CM"; sleep 182d; done

    I've seen pictures larger than that video! I don't think its the complete file...
