    Check after the && you have to remove gnash, etc. to fully experience flashplugin-nonfree.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Thanks for the comprehensive help, but I still can't get my Jaunty install to play DVDs. All my apps do is spin their wheels, freeze, or shutdown. I didn't even need to go through any of this for Intrepid. I don't get it. I got no errors during any of the installs, with the exception of the "obsoleted" css libraries referred to earlier. Flash and other videos have and still do play just fine.

    Any ideas?

    What output do you get with this: ' lspci -nn | grep VGA'

    RealPLayer11Gold does not work. Downloads video fine. Then zips through video really fast. Playback too fast. Pauses to buffer again and then plays back way too fast. Choppy playback at 3x speed.



    Installed from real media website. Here is the workaround in 9.04:

    1) gksudo gedit /opt/real/RealPlayer/realplay

    obviously change if you installed in a different directory. I installed as sudo.

    Original:
    $HELIX_LIBS/realplay.bin "$@"

    New:
    aoss $HELIX_LIBS/realplay.bin "$@"

    In RealPlayer:
    Tools->Preferences->Hardware->Audio Driver
    Change to "OSS"

    restart browser and try again. Works for me.

    Thanks for all your help. My computer is working perfectly.
    Only one change I can see, in the trouble shooting part of dvd playback I had to change
    libdvdread3 to libdvdread4 and it works now. Thanks again for your how to it really helped.

    Thanks for your reply; this is what I get:

    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation G73 [GeForce 7600 GS] [10de:02e1] (rev a2)

    What might I glean from this?

    UPDATE:

    I took one more look through Synaptic and discovered that libdvdread4 seeks a package called libdvdcss; I installed that, and it fixed the problem. Is it weird that this package wasn't already installed? It seems like an odd thing to happen...

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Hello,
    I'v got the same problem and im a newbie( you must really get tired of us and our little problems ). I followed all the steps,thought it might help to reinstall some of those old packages (switched to 9.04 from 8.10) but nothing doing...I looked around but couldn't find anything useful..i tried opening up the Multimedia Selector and changing the Video output plugin to noXv but that didnt help.
    Output that you requested was:

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2572] (rev 02)

    sorry to mention this here but i had another problem with 8.10,audio playback and recording worked fine but i cant use Skype or have an audio chat in Empathy(using a Googletalk account) please help with this as well.

    Thank you.

    Actually it's not odd. Some countries won't allow using libdvdcss. It circumvents DVD protection.
