    VLC - I have audio but not video from online tv


    Hello to everybody
    I have a little question

    i want to play "streamed" videos from internet, i mean, i want to "tune" a online tv channel which uses a playlist file, some similar to list files on webpages of internet radio stations...

    i can tune the channel, i have audio, but not video, also i can tune internet radio stations using ShoutCast.

    I have Debian AMD64 5.0 Lenny (netinstall) and VLC 8.0.6h installed from official repositories.

    "apt-get install vlc mozilla-plugin-vlc"

    i don't know if i have a video plugin missing, i must to install VLC from other repository (adding it on sources.list)

    (i'm able to play common audio and video files)

    i will appreciate any tip or suggestion
    Thanks for advance (i dont know if this is correct, well written...)

    See you

    I think VLC in the regular debian repos is compiled without some proprietary codecs. I think there is a fuller-featured version in the debian multimedia repos.

    I already have used that repos, i used canadian an brazilian repos...
    i added to souces.list and updated, but when i installed the pachages, the official repos where used and the version installed of VLC was the same...

    i must to comment all the official repos and keep uncomented the multimedia ones???

    (also i checked the packages list for AMD64 and didn't see VLC in the list)

    i will test in the afternoon

    thanks again...

    see you
