No Codec's for Acidrip?


Hello

I just installed all packages and compiled mplayer and acidrip successfull, but when I start the gui of Acidrip, I can't choose a codec for coding a dvd as it's on the pic:
http://wislig.dyndns.org/1.png

What are the codec's I have to install? I've installed lame, lame-devel, transcode....
Did I forget anything?

This issue occurs on a 400MHz Pentium2 with RedHat9 ...

On the Acidrip homepage (here) there is a link to the install howto (here). Check it and make sure that you have followed it.

You may need to reinstall Acidrip after installing all the packages.

How did you install the codecs and where are they?

sounds like you don't have mplayer installed... or it's not on your path. as ths is my bit of kit, i'm happy for you to privately email the debug log for offsite help. but essentially, you should close the app, and in the terminal that you opened it in, type "mencoder -ovc help" this is *exactly* what acidrip does to populate the list.

Firstly thanks for your replies...
Code:
mencoder -ovc help
MEncoder 1.0pre5-3.2.2 (C) 2000-2004 MPlayer Team

CPU: Intel Celeron 2/Pentium III Coppermine,Geyserville 798.0 MHz (Family: 6, Stepping: 6)
Detected cache-line size is 32 bytes
CPUflags: Type: 6 MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 0 3DNow2: 0 SSE: 1 SSE2: 0
Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 SSE

Reading /root/.mplayer/codecs.conf: Can't open '/root/.mplayer/codecs.conf': Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
Reading /usr/local/etc/mplayer/codecs.conf: Can't open '/usr/local/etc/mplayer/codecs.conf': Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
Using built-in default codecs.conf.
File not found: 'frameno.avi'
Failed to open frameno.avi
Reading config file /root/.mplayer/mencoder: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

Available codecs:
   copy     - frame copy, without re-encoding. Doesn't work with filters.
   frameno  - special audio-only file for 3-pass encoding, see DOCS.
   raw      - uncompressed video. Use fourcc option to set format explicitly.
   nuv      - nuppel video
   divx4    - divx4linux/divx5linux library (depends on configuration)
   lavc     - libavcodec codecs - best quality!
   vfw      - VfW DLLs, currently only AVID is supported.
   qtvideo  - QuickTime DLLs, currently only SVQ1/3 are supported.
   xvid     - XviD encoding

Exiting... (error parsing cmdline)
Hmm...where can I get an example codecs.conf-file? On that machine, it's necessary to run applications as root...
mplayer was compiled with "--enable-gui"...

And the codecs (all that are listed on the page) were installed as it's described here.

You see, lavc, divx4 is installed, ... now I just have to integrate that in codecs.conf, but how?

I re-compiled mplayer with different additional packages and by entering "mencoder -ovc help", mplayer gave the same output as listed above.

Still I can't select any codec in acidrip, hmmmmm, but I'm sure, they are installed!

Can anyone please give me an advise howto solve that? Has it something to do with the "codecs.conf"-file?

ignore the codecs stuff.. that's a total red herring.

the fact that you get that output from mencoder means that acidrip should have a dropdown saying
Code:
   copy
   frameno
   raw
   nuv
   divx4
   lavc
   vfw
   qtvideo
   xvid
i think it's best to take this off the board really... email me the debug look and i'll look into it.

  • i think it's best to take this off the board really... email me the debug look and i'll look into it.
How can I configure in debug-mode with perl?

./configure --debug isn't the issue, cause it's perl "perl Makefile.PL"...?
How can I debug that?

edit: I tried now some things with "perl -d Makefile.PL" but sorry... I'm too dumb for knowing what I'm doing there, I'm not an application developer...hmmm...

is there maybe a single command that would help you finding a bug?
thanks.

From those errors, does mplayer even work if your claiming its installed? Can you invoke 'mplayer <some-media-file> and does it work? Any errors if it doesn't? I'd say like the error states, doesn't sound like mplayer is even installed or installed correctly.

trickykid, you just brought me to an idea:

PATHS

I'm sorry, that's embarassing for me. AcidKnewbie and others just wasted their time with treating my problem...SSOORRYY

I added "/usr/local/bin" to the PAth-Variable and it runs well.

I AM SORRY AND THANKS...


the small things make the world go round...

but I know it for the next time...(shame on me).
