OGM Media Files (FC4)


Alright, this one I actually have looked into I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get files to play OGM files (I think the other name for them is OGG) and I dont mean the sound only, I mean the actual movie files with all the subtitles and extra tracks and crud.

Thanks in advance ^_^

.ogg is an open audio codec, and it can be played on every media player. I haven't heard of .ogm, but if it is video, the previous poster is correct in suggesting mplayer with all of the codecs.

Peace,

Mplayer (with the essential codecs) and VLC tend to have codecs for lots of things. Even Totem might be able to play it directly.

I used YUM and followed the instructions on two sites in install MPLAYER and it didnt work.

I have the RPM for mplayer and mplayer-common but I cant install them because they require eachother and Im supposed to 'install them on 1 line of code' or something and I dont really understand how...

But I would like Mplayer since everyone says its the best.

(And thx for the 'registered linux user' site, I went there and put it in my sig too )

.ogg and .ogm are the same thing - a file extension for Ogg. Ogg is not an audio format, it is a container format for audio, video and metadata. The audio format is called Vorbis, the video format is called Theora. So if you want to play an Ogg file containing video and audio, you need codecs for both Vorbis and Theora. According to Xiph:

Major players like mplayer, xine, helix player and VideoLAN supports Theora. Directshow filters are also available for use on Windows platform.

just specify both packages, where you would usually put one, e.g.
Code:
rpm -i mplayer.rpm mplayer-common.rpm

The part 'just specify both packages'... how does the terminal know where to look for them exactly?

Anyway, I cant really explain the instructions i followed because they arent mine and I was just going step by step, I only understood every other bit of it, I got the instructions from these two sites (I downloaded there repositories) http://www.fedorafaq.org/ and http://home.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc4-tips.php

I understand if you dont wanna go looking into everything I did, and i wouldnt expect you too. I was just hoping to get someone elses better solution, because this way if something goes wrong I can check with someone who knows the process.

if you say,
Code:
rpm -i filename.rpm other-filename.rpm
It will look into the present directory you are in...to know which directory you are in,

Code:
pwd
if you want to specify a directory where your files are located:

Code:
rpm -i /path/to/file/filename.rpm /path/to/file/other-filename.rpm
Tux,
