    Still stuck


    All,

    I found this install for Kaffeine, at and when it loaded got the
    Error: Kaffeine cannot find demux plugin for MRL
    I then found the fix for that at:
    Code:
    ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1482558
    I then applied the patch
    Code:
    apt-get install libxine1-all-plugins
    I am still getting the same error from Kaffeine and still no improvement from any of the other players!

    Hope someone has the answer for this soon!

    Cheers!

    It will really help if you post what hardware you're running...

    Hardware should not matter NGIB. I have had videos play on my 1000Hz, 512MB ram, IBM A22M laptop on DVDROM
    drive. Which are pretty low specs. His errors are software releated, not hardware related.

    yancek,

    done all the "apt-get install" and "apt-get -f install" on these, verified in synaptic, and none work:

    Dragon Player,
    Gnome Player,
    KMPlayer,
    KPlayer,
    MPlayer,
    MPlayer2,
    Parole,
    SMPlayer,
    VLC,
    Xine,
    Damn, Everything but Gnome-Mplayer which is what I use normally.

    I am busy testing for AntiX 14 plus I have real world commitments occupying me presently oldmanriver.

    Notice the apt-cache search depends on my readout and what I would do is copy the readout to a text file for Kaffiene or what ever default player
    you are using and make sure all depends made it into the install by checking each one in synaptic or terminal (apt-cache policy <package name>). Usually Ubuntu is good on that but I am not sure about 12.04 since 14.04 is now the LTS and maybe everything did not make it to the install is all I can guess.

    Code:
    $ mplayer /home/harry/Movies/Let_The_Bullets_Fly.avi


    Don't be fooled by my mplayer blue screen , screen shot. The screenshooter in this install could not capture the movie playing in mplayer but it was playing just fine when I took the screenshot.

    OK. Remember how I said preferences sometimes need to be set.
    Well here is one for VLC

    [ubuntu] cannot find demux plugin for mrl

    I don't use or understand Kaffiene but something like that might be in preferences also needing to be set by you.

    All I can do is hint.

    I agree it's probably software but it does help to know what hardware is in use. I'm sure there are very old computers with very low RAM or finicky video systems that can't run any video player. As I said I'm not an expert on anything but I always follow the KISS principle and eliminate the obvious before looking for the strange...

    I'm still wondering about corruption. Do other videos play?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    elija,

    Nothing plays. Dragon use to play in "freeze frame" mode only, but after starting other installs, it's toast!

    I went out to IRC.freenode #kubuntu and the guys gave me lot's of things to do, but nothing worked.

    Cheers!

    Have you installed the kubuntu-restricted-extras package?

    elija,

    Yes and no change to anything, none of the players work yet!

    The players I now have installed are;
    1. Dragon
    2. Gnome Mplayer
    3. gxine
    4. Kaffeine
    5. KMPlayer
    6. KPlayer
    7. MPlayer
    8. MPlayer2
    9. Parole
    10. SMPlayer
    11. Totem
    12. VLC
    13. xine


    Not one of these work. Absolutely no audio or video.

    Remember Dragon Player was working in "Freeze Frame" mode when I starting working on this, so it is not anything to do with hardware.

    Cheers!

    All,

    Should my question be a "How do I configure players?" question? Is this where I'm at, since nothing works? How do I know where I'm at?

    Cheers!

    Progress

    All,

    OK players are working with .avi and .mp4 files, but no other extensions work, so now guessing just config and codec issues.

    Cheers!
