Still not sure after all this time...

Posted 04-10-2009 at 11:02 AM by and3583

I'm perhaps less of a linux newbie now, I've tried a whole lot of different distros and I'm feeling rather stupid as I found out the p.c. I'm using has hardware issues owing to the thunderstorm and concomitant lightning strike which stopped it running on Windows in the first place. Still, so far its survived 18 months since that time and I'm not complaining.

My beloved Fedora core 8 was the last but one distro I loaded (if the red hat fits...) and it worked fine until I upgraded it...

I'm not very good with video

Posted 04-10-2009 at 08:35 AM by uinseann

It's true Im' afraid! I find video and audio formats confusing? Then you've got all these codecs to install to "Transcode". Why can't things be made simpler to understand? or is it just my brain starting to go soft, early.

I recorded part of a program last night using my Geniatech dvb stick through Kaffeine! The quality was very good, the sound seemed to be down but that could just be the signal strength I suppose. I closed Kaffeine and navigated to the file I had just made....

Laptop Locating resource

The Linux Laptop Sites are a great resource for finding out what works and what doesn't on a particular model of laptop.

Look at what laptops manufacturers are selling with Linux.. If a manufacturer is selling or certifying a particular model, odds are it will work well with whatever distribution of Linux you wish to install on it.

MP4 videos don't play in Mandriva 2009 free

Posted 04-09-2009 at 01:55 AM by mcvasant

I've copied MPlayer essential codecs in /usr/lib/codecs as well as in /usr/local/lib/codecs.
Even then MPlayer can't play MP4 videos.

How can I fix this?
