I can't understand it. VLC should play everything. It's a mystery...

I understand. My experience is that google is like a tuned resonant circuit. If you don't hit exactly or very close to what you want with your keywords, it returns a lot of incidentals that you have to wade through. Regarding downloads that you are unsure of installing, you might want a GUI frontend for your APT installer that would do just what smart (http://labix.org) does for RPM. Then you would have something that would clearly show you how or if a download fits in your system, the names (i.e. google keywords to get you close to what you want so that you can cut out the volumes of incidentals to wade through) of what it needs (if anything) to be installed, what depends on it, etc. I would have suggested smart but apparently they don't have much for debian.

Spent. My resolution is, Debian will go in the trash. Period. Funk this shxt.
On their way, in the mail, are official (K)Ubuntu CDs.
Unless someone has a different idea, I Destin this Debian crap to the trash.
Thanks

W: GPG error: http://www.lamaresh.net lenny Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 905C75258D4B24D2
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
This error relates to lamaresh,which is the Wine repository.
Not Debian Multimedia.

Quote:
LORAXNETWORK:~# apt-get install debian-keyring
So that should be apt-get install debian-multimedia-keyring
No need to install the .deb,just answer yes when prompted.
You'll also need the key for lamaresh also(read their web page).

Instead of declaring Debian crap,how about you post a link to the video you want to play?.
Then we can see what will be needed to play it.

Appearently, I have already done that:

Quote:
LORAXNETWORK:~# apt-get install debian-keyring
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
debian-keyring is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
Here's the page where the video is streamed:
http://oneswarm.cs.washington.edu/sc...ncast_overview

Here's the actual download-the-video link:
http://oneswarm.cs.washington.edu/sc...s/overview.mp4

I'm not actually pissed off at Debian, I know it's tried-and-true. I'm more frustrated at the 6 weeks of hassles just to get an operating system working right. Just ask Eric, he's been there every minute of it...
I had a beautiful Kubuntu running for a while, but I guess I made a mistake during usage and it went POOF. I had to scrap the installation and start over. The CD from which I was installing is faulty. So, The one install I got from it was after many attempts, and many more attempts have failed since.

I'm not really giving up yet. Yet.

Agree!
Btw, Xode, are you an electrician, or electrical engineer? Resonant circuits are in my curriculum in my Inside Wireman courses, JATC.

Ok,i got it to play.
Here's what i did:

Right click on the second link you posted,and 'save link as'.
Save the file to my /home directory.
Once it had finished downloading,right click again and open with Vlc or Smplayer.
Both played the file just fine.

Give that a try see if that does any better for you.

Just reset FF to dl to /home.
It won't do it now. After I "start" the dl,
For some reason, I no longer have permission to write to my /home folder anymore. I just tried moving the file, which I already had on the Desktop, into the /home. It says I don't have permissions... That's not normal, is it?

Ok,let's try a different approach.Try launching Vlc from the cli to play the file.
Try something like:

Code:
vlc /home/lorax/overview.mp4
If that's where it's located.
See if we get any errors?.
