I have a Humax Video hard disk player, which enables me to copy downloaded files I want to keep to a memory stick, and hence to a computer. The files come as .ts files, which windows tells me are MPEG-2 TS Video files.
Ubuntu cannot deal with these files, though Windows can. This in itself is unusual for video, as Ubuntu is usually much better than Windows in this area.
On a computer, during the installation of ubuntu, there are two devices listed: /dev/sda for whole hard disk and /dev/sda1 (80GB) for windows. So the whole memory is used for windows. However, when I checked which OS installed to the device from boot menu I saw that they were both windows and ubuntu. If the whole memory is used for windows how there could be ubuntu as well?
When I go to the display settings, It's showing "Built-in Display" I'm running Oracle VM on my Toshiba laptop windows 7 64bit
Currently the resolution is set 640 X 480 (4.3) My windows resolution is 1366 x 768 Landscape. Of course I'm unable to view my entire screen because of the 4.3 letter box display.
Does the onboard video on the motherboard affect the X windows configuration?
My system has onboard and pcie video. The onboard video is a NVIDIA GeForce 7025 GPU, On Board Graphic Max. Memory Share Up to 512MB(Under OS By Turbo Cache). I have a pcie dual head video card installed with two monitors. The video card is a GeForce 8400 GS, with 512mb memory.
I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 in VirtualBox. The host machine is running Windows 7 with an ATI Radeon HD 5570 video card, 12 GB of memory, 2 quad core i7 CPUs. I've given the virtual machine 4GB of memory, 128 MB of video memory, 1 CPU, and checked the 3d acceleration box in VirtualBox (without 3d checked everything runs like molasses in the winter time).
