Howto install Multimedia Codecs for Lenny with Gnome?
Depends on what you want.
Take a look at exoodles - http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-mplayer-2092/
Thx, but howto install ALL codecs?
Is it enough to install w32codecs and libdvdcss2?
Totem uses gstreamer-plugins,
vlc and mplayer use ffmpeg.
For the web browser you can use vlc-mozilla, totem-mozilla or mplayerplug-in on Stable or gecko-mediaplayer on testing and sid.
libdvdcss2 is needed to play dvds.
Various media players use different plugins so it really depends on what apps you use. There is no "ALL codecs".
My browser plugins:
Installed Plugins: (10)
- Default Plugin
- DivX Browser Plug-In
- Helix DNA Plugin: RealPlayer G2 Plug-In Compatible
- Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_20
- mplayerplug-in is now gecko-mediaplayer 0.9.9.2
- OpenOffice.org Plug-in
- QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.4
- RealPlayer 9
- Shockwave Flash
- Windows Media Player Plug-in
most of them come from gecko-mediaplayer. if you want real realplayer you need to download it from http://www.real.com/realplayer/linux
I just installed Lenny on my laptop, and was playing .avi files without adding any additional software.
I used Totem, the default player. Just double clicked on the .avi file, and it fired right up.
I searched for codec files via Synaptic PM, now that I think about it, and installed one codec for decoding mpeg 1,2,&3 audio streams. Can`t recall which one it was though. If you`re having trouble getting videos or mp3s to play, search for the formats you want to use (+codec) in Synaptic. You should find what you need with little trouble.
the basic and essential plug-ins for GStreamer
the plug-ins for most Open formats
good-quality plug-ins that might pose distribution problems, needed for DVD playback
a set of plug-ins that need more work, needed for DVD playback as well
FFmpeg-based plug-in, contains all the basic decoders for popular codecs, such as DivX and WMV
Other gstreamer plugins you may want:
gstreamer0.10-lame - GStreamer lame plugin ( in the debian-multimedia.org repo)
gstreamer0.10-x264 - GStreamer x264 plugin ( in the debian-multimedia.org repo)
gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3 - Fluendo mp3 decoder GStreamer plugin
Totem should pull everything in it needs other than the last three plugins listed above.
For mplayer install it and ffmpeg from debian-multimedia.org along with libdvdcss2
if you prefer vlc install it and ffmpeg from the normal Debian repo, and libdvdcss2 from dmm repo.
