Thread: Player Issues, with 10 step ;)

    Default Player Issues, with 10 step ;)

    I can not get Kaffeine to play DVD's. Additionally when trying to play with Mplayer(got it to play by switching the video driver(thanks to the forum) it says: Warning MVs not available. The sound also seems very weak. Could this just be the audio card in the computer, or a setting issue. The volume bar is all the way up in the player, the volume control in the panel and the mixer.

    Issues during the 10 steps. I did not have all of the gst items installed, so I downloaded all of that from the repository. Now their is the issue with GST, as you can see when I verified it. Any help?

    Thanks so much!!! Happy holidays everyone!

    Neither Kaffeine (xine based) nor Mplayer (standalone) use gstreamer. So, even if you have problems with it* that should not matter.

    Your problem probably isn't multimedia related but caused by Permissios in /dev caused failure to play video dvd - openSUSE Forums (I suppose you are using openSUSE 11.1).
    You can verify that running "getfacl /dev/sr0" and checking if your username appears. If that's the case, while they fix it, execute "setfacl -m u:your_username:rw /dev/sr0" and it should work.



    * gstreamer-0_10, gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base, gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good, gstreamer-0_10-schroedinger, gstreamer-0_10-utils, gstreamer-utils, libgstinterfaces-0_10-0 and libgstreamer-0_10-0 should be installed from Packman (that's why you get the libgstvideo4linux2 error). If you mix OSS and Packman packages you can easily end with "undefined reference" errors. The same with libxine1-gnome-vfs and libxine1-pulse.

    I found everything except for the "wine-ui" Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I am running 11.1 with KDE.


    I did as shown, and it still would not work. I also logged su, then ran xine, still no love.

    Here is the info after updating myself to the permissions:

    philip@linux-zr3q:~> getfacl /dev/sr0
    getfacl: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
    # file: dev/sr0
    # owner: root
    # group: disk
    user::rw-
    userhilip:rw-
    group::rw-
    mask::rw-
    other::---


    *Is there something that I need to do about the philip@linux-zr3q:~> rpm --verify --query --all '*gst*'
    S.5....T /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideo4linux2.so
    ?

    caf4926:

    xine-ui* thanks, got it.

    Still getting the same 2 different errors on the two players...Thanks for the continued support!

    I can confirm the problem with the openSUSE version of Kaffeine... it should not be a problem, the problematic code is in xine and not in kaffeine. Installing the Packman version fixes the problem.

    About mplayer... the error message seems to indicate the video from the DVD isn't correctly encoded, but if it's just a warning...
    The sound level... it will be because the audio is in AC3. The dynamic range (difference between lowest and highest level of volume) should be selectable... from a quick look to mplayer man page it seems the option is "-a52drc".

    Problem found and reported to Packman/Novell.

    I checked the install and it was from the Packman repository. I uninstalled Kaffeine and reinstalled it. Now it works!

    On the -a52drc, I am unsure of what exactly I am suppose to be doing with that. Could you provide a little further guidance? Also is that what fixes the Error: Warning MVs unavailable?

    Thanks again!!!!

    Rereading the man, it says the a52drc option is already activated at its max value by default, so forget that.

    The MVs warning probably can't be fixed, just try a different DVD video and it should dissapear.
