If your TV can play movies that have subtitles muxed into the same file as the video, there are many advantages to adding the subtitles as a subtitle track, instead of burning them into the video. mkvmerge -o movie_with_subs.mkv movie.mp4 subs.srt That will include all tracks from the mp4 (video, audio, chapters), and subs from the srt as a text ...

I just had a very similar problem as in the video, but I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and only use Intel Graphics. The problem started after I installed vdpauinfo and libvdpau-va-gl1, because VLC was complaining about their absence.

I had the same unstable USB connection problem with my S4. I found that it doesn’t like the 3.0 ports. If you have a 2.0 USB port, use that one instead and I think you’ll do better uploading your videos. I use the VLC media player to view my android videos and it works great for me. Hope this helps :)

Download The first step is to download ffmpeg. It's a standalone binary so you don't need to install it. Just execute it directly. Your (expired) Ubuntu version offers avconv which is missing many features including several concatenation functions. Concatenate Use the concat demuxer if you want to attempt to join them with no re-encoding. All videos must ...

The scenario has changed in Ubuntu 16.04 ;-) If you were using the AMD Catalyst (fglrx) driver on older Ubuntu you may wish to avoid upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04.

It's worth trying to install HAL from Martin Wimpress's PPA. This stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer, and is required by some Flash content protected by DRM. Open a terminal window (Alt-Ctrl-T) and type the following commands: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:flexiondotorg/hal-flash sudo apt update sudo apt install libhal1-flash cd ~/.adobe/Flash_Player rm -...

youtube-dl is probably the best tool for downloading videos from YouTube (they are also supporting a bunch of other sites. To install it just follow the instructions on the download page. On Linux you can get it using curl or wget: sudo curl -L https://yt-dl.org/downloads/2016.06.16/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/...

This is definitely a hardware problem, since it's telling you that the camera was disconnected and then reconnected: usb 3-4: USB disconnect, device number 15 ... usb 3-4: new high-speed USB device number 16 using xhci_hcd The camera is connected using an internal USB cable in the laptop, which is somehow loose , and thus, when you move your laptop, it ...

A combination of find, ffprobe, jq utilities could be used to print info about all *.avi, *.mp4 files (in the current directory tree recursively) that are NOT encoded using "h264" video codec: $ find -name \*.avi -o -name \*.mp4 \ -exec ffprobe -v quiet -show_streams -show_format -of json {} \; | jq -c '.format.filename as $path | .streams[]? ...

there is a script that copies the needed 20-intel.conf file and the newest intel firmware: http://www.linux-onlineshop.de/forum/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=317 It is in german, but you can see what it does there and make the same!
