Thread: multi-media codes, vlc, kde

  1. #1

    Default multi-media codes, vlc, kde

    I did a manual install of the codecs using this page.

    http://opensuse-guide.org/codecs.php

    VLC showed an error.

    I tried the one-click install. VLC still didn't work. App will not launch.

    Also, the dolphin app disappeared. I had to reinstall it. I'm now proceeding to do an update install. Reinstall with the additional nvidia repos only.

    Note that that page has been updated to Leap 15.0 already, and contains the repo URLs for Leap 15.0.

    Maybe that's your problem, as you are apparently using Leap 42.3?

    Post your repo list:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    VLC showed an error.
    And what error?

    Once you get your repositories straight (post above) here is the oneclick site for Leap 42.3:

    http://opensuse-community.org/index.html

    Be aware I have never had success, and have read about overs having issues, with the nvidia oneclick installs on that page. The multimedia part always worked well.
    I don’t have anything to hide, but I don’t have anything I want to show you either.

    I tend to avoid one click installs
    the vdpau video plugin has been pulled from the main vlc distribution and put in a separate package as you say you have an nvidia card you're missing that plugin so just do
    Code:
    zypper in vlc-vdpau
    and vlc should work

    ignore the above I thought you're on LEAP 15.0 I didn't see the LEAP 42.3 prefix 42.3 doesn't have vlc-vdpau
    the best thing you can do is tell us your repo's and maybe the vlc output messages from a terminal

    I meant to say VLC wouldn't start up, meaning it crashed not displaying an error.

    By using the wrong page, I managed to corrupt opensuse 42.3

    More FYI, the update gave me a 'system is not compatible with installed media'. When it booted, I saw a completely different desktop, something called 'ice(XX)'. From the opensuse dvd, I did a install using the whole drive and erasing all the old data. I tried to import the user data That didn't work and all my directories were empty. So, again, I copied the data from backup. I used the yast based method for installing the nvidia drivers. That was successful.

    I prefer the manual method using the command line for codecs. Which is the correct page for a manual install?

    For opensuse 42.3, I need MP4 and AVI support

    Ok.
    In such a case it may be helpful to run the application in a terminal window (xterm, konsole, gnome-terminal, ...), where you might get some error messages.

    The rest is hopefully answered satisfactorily already or no longer relevant anyway.
    But in principle, just replace "15.0" with "42.3" in the commands given on that http://opensuse-guide.org/codecs.php page and it should work fine for Leap 42.3...

    Or actually just add the Packman repo (for your openSUSE version) and run "zypper dup --from xxx".
    E.g.:
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_42.3 packman
    sudo zypper dup --from packman
    A list of mirrors can be found here, if you'd prefer a different one for some reason:
