Hi, I have several questions to ask, please bare with me.
I don't know much about media stuff, but I have here a .mov file that's 85mb. When I play it with Xine it works but no audio. And also, whenever I want to skip to a certain point in the video by clicking the streaming bar, the video automatically skips back to the beginning. Is there an explanation for this?
I am able to play .avi, .wmv, and the likes with no problems. The video and audio is perfect on those types of files with Xine.
Anyway I thought this was a codec issue and so I checked over at /usr/lib/codecs/
and their were no codecs present. I thought by installing mplayer codecs in /usr/lib/codecs
and make Xine use those codecs it would fix this audio and skipping issue, but it didn't. Forgot to mention that before I did that I uncommented out a line in .xine config file which was this:
And another thing with .mov files, in order for me to skip to a certain point in the video, I have to wait 1-2 minutes before I can skip the video. Can someone explain?
I thought by installing mplayer, it would fix this issue and so I installed mplayer including all its codecs with slackbuild scripts on my other
test machine. Then I played the .mov files and I could hear the audio which is good but I couldn't skip the video. Everytime I tryed skipping the video to a certain point, the video would automatically go back to the beginning. Is their an explanation for this?
The only fix that I know is if I convert the .mov file to a .wmv file with ffmpeg:
ffmpeg -i original.mov -acodec wmav2 new.wmv
^ If I did that, the video will lose some quality but that's the only way I know of fixing this audio and skipping issue.
How can I make Xine or Mplayer to play and skip .mov files properly?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
