I recently tried switching to linux and had some problems, however now I'm back after a switch from X86-64 to i386. I got java and flash and mp3's and wma's and preatty much everything going, however I still can't play videos online or off.
This is where my problems come in, I have mplayer installed, however when I try to play something with it it says I don't have Xvideo support... Help with that would be nice... :)
Also I know by default Mplayer doesn't have a GUI, but I would like to enable it, I have a skin downloaded and stuff but I don't know how to enable it... Help there to :)
Also I have Mplayer-plugin installed, and when I try to stream a video it comes up and says buffering and stuff but when when it changes and says playing nothing happens, it just says playing (the file name). I guess this might have something to do with my lack of Xvideo support... So again help :)
Thanks for anything you can think of and for any/all help/effort...
Re: Mplayer/Mplayer-plugin problems
KFI Radio Stream:
mplayer -cache 4 http://ccdig.liquidviewer.com/kfi?MSWMExt=.asf
mplayer -cache 4 -playlist http://126.96.36.199/JackFM?MSWMExt=.asf
HSN Video Stream:
mplayer -cache 4 mms://webcast.hsn.com/hsn100
Thank you SOOOO much....
I was looking into drivers (that other post you linked to was talking about them if I rember right), and then I realized that I was using the intergrated graphics and when I switched it over to my actual card the Xvideo problem went away and then videos started playing fine that were on my hard drive. Thank you.
Then like you said I looked into the cache thing and I messed around with it a little, and finally I got the sound links you posted to work, and streaming quicktime videos were working. Then I forget how or where I found it but I was looking at something I found on google and they had "w32codecs" so I found those on google and then the video links worked and streaming windows media links worked also. Thank you again.
I used the use other command thing at the bottom of the choose program thing and now when I open them from the file browser. So thats good, I think I would still like a GUI though, so I understand I need to recompile it, however being a super-noob I don't quite have that totally figured out yet so I'm googleing... (I'm using FC4 i386 f anyone feels like helping :))
Thanks again, you helped A LOT, I have all the basics done now, so it's all justside stuff that I feel like doing...
Just a tag on the end of this thread to catch anyone searching for mplayer/movie player threads.
Many folk have trouble with the mplayer rpm installs.
However, the source install is quite easy and a good project for not-quite-completely-new linux users.
I personally had no luck.
