    Hi@ajgreeny,

    Other media players, VLC and Videos, works without sound problem.

    $ inxi -Fzx > output.txt

    output.txt is attached here

    Hardware - component ?

    AMD Ryzen 5 8-core cpu
    RAM 32G DDR3
    OS harddrive - SATA3 2TB SSD
    DVD-Writer
    Display - Dell 32" 4K display

    Thanks

    For your information.

    VLC Media player can convert video CD to .wav

    and then I run following command to convert it to.mp4

    Code:
    $ ffmpeg -i 'Track 10.wav' -s 1980x1080 -c:a aac -b:a 128k track-10.mp4
    but the file size increases dramatically, 3~4 times. Up-to-now I couldn't make "HandBrake" to work?

    Regards

    Hi all,

    Just test on Video DVD

    All tracks .VOB are displayed on "Files". Please refers to screenshot.

    The tracks can be played on VLC media player without problem and with sound. The tracks can ALSO be played on SMPlayer but without sound.

    I think there may be a miss-match between SMSPlayer and Ubutun 22.04

    Hi all,

    The Video DVD can be converted directly on VLC to mp4 format.

    It took;
    3hr : 46min : 38sec
    to finish the conversion.

    Next round to convert another DVD video to .MP4

    I'll run ffmpeg commands on Terminal;

    1)
    Code:
    $ ffmpeg -i VTS_01_1.vob VTS_01_1.mp4|ffmpeg -i VTS_01_2.vob VTS_01_2.mp4|ffmpeg -i VTS_01_3.vob VTS_01_3.mp4" etc.
    Check the .vob file having video content inside first.

    2)
    Code:
    $ ffmpeg -i "concat:VTS_01_1.mp4|VTS_01_2.mp4|VTS_01_3.mp4|etc." -c copy VTS_01.mp4
    The time of conversion would be much faster. It won't need >3 hrs to finish

    Re: SMPlayer without sound

    Smplayer is just a frontend, for either mp eller mpv, which one it is using? The info is in prefrenbes. If you try and play your video directly with mplayer or mpv and you hear sound then it is something in sound settings in smplayer that is the problem, otherwise you should look at solving the problem with mplayer or mpv.
