that play the most codecs and able to play most of the files from the web? name your app. some of the porn videos i downloaded to my 8.9 from my pc can't play...lol.
VLC player and totem video player can't play MSS2 video encoded video files but i could play them under Ubuntu by compiling FFMPEG library. now ffplay can play these files. My question is if there is any way to add these codecs to system so that vlc player or totem video player can also play these files.
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.
I have a distributed application that consists in a main CMS server where "human" users can upload videos, pictures (media content, basically) and a bunch of "players" that play those videos or pictures at certain times.
Right now, each and every player connects via HTTP/SFTP to the CMS to grab the content it needs to play (erm... and plays it... if nothing is broken).
Recently installed Lubuntu 12.04 with alternate installer on Compaq Evo N400c (850Mhz PIII, 20GB ATA HDD, 512MB RAM).
After installation of restricted extras and medibuntu codecs I realized that it can't play videos. I tried Midori, Firefox, Chrome, Chromium but all the browsers say: "Shockwave plugin cannot opened...." I tried Adobe plugin, no succes.
Doesn't matter the player.. tried SMPlayer and VLC. After opening numerous video files, the players only play audio. Video will play in Chromium and Firefox, just not in video players. I'd watch a bunch of trailers I downloaded, and after say 10 or so, just get audio. I must say I'm vexed. I'd even need a solution, just an idea of what is the issue.
