Wine, Divx and TMpgenc


Hey All.
I was trying to get transcode/ mencoder and a few other encoders working under linux, but they all give me issues installing or compiling(they give me an error that i don't have a file, but it's there, i;'ve checked it, and it just doesn't want to work, or the libraries supplied with the source doesn't want to compile). Anyway.. i've done hours worth of searching and found nothing pertinant to these issues.

Anyways, i've decided to go with Wine to use the old staple, TMpgenc. It runs, but i cant open any of my video files(be they divx/xvid/mpg, etc...). It gives me an unsupported error.
I figured this is because divx isn't installed under the wine directory tree.. so it doesn't know that i already have divx for linux installed. So i tried to install the windows version of divx using wine, at which point it installs everything, but at 100%, it opens a debugger window and sits there. I have no idea what to do with the debugger... i have no clue when it comes to any form of C programming! I figured that because it got to 100%, it should be installed, but TMpgenc still says the same thing.

Any help/suggestions would be great.


Sys info:

AMD 1000 T-bird
RH 9.0
wine built from source(Wine-20021007.tar.gz)
divx for linux 5
xvid
latest version of tmpgenc

This is not the answer you want, but try to solve transcode and mencoder. These two tools are far, far better than TMPGenc.

RPMs are available for both transcode and mencoder. In fact, I thought that transcode is part of the Red Hat distribution (at least it was with 7.3). Transcode is easier to get going than mencoder/mplayer. There is also a GUI for transcode, called gtranscode.

I have used Red Hat 7.3, Slackware, and Knoppix/Debian and I've never had a problem with transcode. Install it from a package rather than compiling it. You will probably waste more time trying to get TMPGenc working under wine rather than getting transcode to work.

You can find the RPM for transcode at http://rpmfind.net:

RPM for mencoder:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...query=mencoder

Also, Red Hat 9.0 may be missing audio and video codecs, which may be resulting in your "missing files" errors. These codecs are available as RPMs.

RPMs for w32codec ie. win32 audio/visual codecs including MP3 and DivX:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...query=w32codec

RPMs for xvidcore ie. XViD codec:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...query=xvidcore

Thanks for the reply.

I don't mind getting transcode working, but i think i should've been a bit more precise with what went wrong.

I did (finally) manage to get it to install. the problem seems to be missing libraries. I have managed to compile and install it, but whenever i run it, there's some library missing, and once i fix that, there's another one missing.

For example.. a dependency is LAME. I installed LAME, but i still get a whole bunch of MP3 libraries missing. I fix those errors, and then there's a whole bunch of of missing mp2 libraries.

I's more that even if i download all the dependencies listed on the various sites for transcode, i'm still missing something.
For instance:
I found out that you need to install mjpeg tools for this, which i can't do because i need libquicktime... so i installed all the quicktime packages i could lay my hands on, but that did no good. I gave up before i threw the thing out the window(can't tell i'm newish to linux eh?)

Okay, that's not so bad. You just need to install all of the multimedia libraries. Red Hat is not the best multimedia distro, because Red Hat is paranoid about patent infringements, especially with MP3.

What is the specific problem that you have with libquicktime?

If you haven't already, download the RPMs for all of the following codec and multimedia packages (to the same directory):
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...query=w32codec
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...query=xvidcore
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...y=libquicktime
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...ery=mjpegtools
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=lame
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...?query=avifile
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...ery=libavcodec

Then cd into your download directory and rpm -Uvh *

I downloaded most of those... but i'll do it again!

The problem with quicktime is:
error: Failed dependencies:
libquicktime is needed by mjpegtools-1.6.1.90-1
libquicktime.so.0 is needed by mjpegtools-1.6.1.90-1

hope that might help!

Cheers
Miche

You may need to manually add some symlinks. First, confirm the location of quicktime libraries: ls /usr/lib/libquicktime* ; ls /usr/local/lib/libquicktime*

Assuming that your libquicktime.* files are in /usr/lib, then try the following:

ln -s /usr/lib/libquicktime.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/libquicktime.so.0
ln -s /usr/lib/libquicktime.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/libquicktime
