Mplayer Audio Help


Hey gang.....This is the last script I got when attempting to open a file with mplayer.....The only noticeable problem I'm having is no audio....I've tried the "mplayer -ao oss" command, the "mplayer -ao help" command......Can anybody point me in the direction of fixing my audio....The fonts really aren't a big deal to me, should they be? I'm a newbie if it's not obvious....I'm a Windows baby but am more than willing to diversify and learn Linux as my primary OS...

have you tried playing some other file.Like a avi or mpg or something.I have experienced this problem for quiet a while now.Some .mov movies do not output an audio stream whereas some do.I do not know the reason why.

Have you tried reading "DOCS/HTML/en/codecs.html"? I think that would probably shed some light on the prob. As you can see above it's having a problem loading a codec lib. The problem may be rectifiable, but you'll never know until you read the documentation :-).

Yes ihave noticed this tons of times with .mov files.For school work we have to watch videos and our teacher has put them up in .mov format so i have to go to windows or read the titles to know whats going on.However you will not have any problems with any other type of video encoding.
I would suggest that you download and install the win32 codec set from mplayers site.It gives you many more ocdecs and lets you play quiet a few other video formats.

oh well....

I thought i was doing so well when i found qtmlClient.dll off the Internet and copied it:
Code:
cp qtmlClient.dll  /usr/local/lib/codecs/qtmlClient.dl
and then after studying the output messages, i found QuikTime.qts off my WinBlows install and copied it
Code:
cp /mnt/windows/winnt/system32/QuickTime.qts /usr/local/lib/win32/QuickTime.qts
but then it still complained:
Code:

MPlayer Audio help

I ended up packing it in as far as MPlayer goes....Check out http://xinehq.de/. Easy to use, plays DVDs (with a DVD drive of course) and just all around a great player...
