    Wink Smplayer Issue || 11.04

    Hi,

    Problem is when I open any file with Smplayer it won't play


    Code:
    /usr/bin/mplayer -noquiet -nofs -nomouseinput -vc ffh264vdpau,ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau, -afm hwac3 -sub-fuzziness 1 -identify -msglevel demux=6 -slave -vo vdpau -ao alsa -nokeepaspect -framedrop -nodr -double -input conf=/usr/share/smplayer/input.conf -stop-xscreensaver -wid 41943396 -monitorpixelaspect 1 -*** -embeddedfonts -***-line-spacing 0 -***-font-scale 1 -***-styles /home/user0/.config/smplayer/styles.*** -fontconfig -font Arial -subfont-autoscale 0 -subfont-osd-scale 20 -subfont-text-scale 20 -subcp ISO-8859-1 -subpos 100 -cache 1000 -osdlevel 0 -prefer-ipv4 -slices -channels 2 -softvol -softvol-max 153 -aspect 16:9 file:///home/user0/Videos/New%20HD%20Videos/video.mkv

       Exiting... (End of file)

    But when I drag n drop the same file to the Smplayer window playback starts without any issues.

    Re: Smplayer Issue || 11.04

    Is the problem corrected if you remove the spaces from the path to the file? Perhaps rename the offending folder something like:

    Code:
    /home/user0/Videos/New_HD_Videos/video.mkv
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Hmmm.... seems a little odd. 'File not found' usually means there is an error in the path. The problem you are facing I suspect is that because of the way the SMPlayer desktop files are set up they will often have a problem with spaces in either path to the file and/or in the filename itself. Perhaps drag the file to the Desktop and right-click + open with SMPlayer from this location?

    Tried copying the video file to Desktop & playing it from there.

    mplayer log shows different kinds of errors.

    Please see attachment.

    Re: Smplayer Issue || 11.04

    Code:
    [h264_vdpau @ 0xb67b3e20]AVC: nal size 548161
    [h264_vdpau @ 0xb67b3e20]no frame!
    Error while decoding frame!
    Looks like the high-profile H.264 problem that Andrew and I discussed over here.

    Also this error looks a bit dicey:

    Code:
    [format] Sample format big-endian AC3 not yet supported
    You might not get any audio even if you fix the video problem.

    As I suggested in the other thread, one option is to try mplayer2. (Andrew, any pointers to a good mplayer2 PPA?)

    One other option might be to try viewing the video with the "xv" driver rather than VDPAU. The error is thrown by the H.264/VDPAU decoder; maybe using xv or opengl as the video driver might avoid it.

    I am playing these files with vlc ATM.

    Let's hope mplayer2 gets included in the Ubuntu repos soon.

    But the file permission problem is still a mystery.

    I will have to admit that I don't normally use PPAs but I have heard of that a gentleman known as Ripps has a PPA with MPLayer2, but I have not chased this up as yet....

    The mplayer (actually mplayer2) from both are the same build by Ripps.

    The first of these requires using CoreAVC through wine. I wouldn't suggest that to anyone over native mplayer. A solution that requires running some Windows code in wine isn't a solution for people like me who don't run wine and don't intend to. (I'd rather just use VirtualBox with a Windows guest.) The second PPA is called "Testing PPA". While it has an mplayer2 build, I don't know how trustworthy it is.

    I wish the mplayer2 devs would maintain their own PPA with a well-tested and well-supported release. Until then, I'm sticking to building from source. If you're not deterred from compiling, this is a fine solution with no additional overhead like CoreAVC.
