It's a command line tool, but ffmpeg can do slow motion. If you don't have ffmpeg installed you will probably have to compile it from source (as far as I know there is not a ppa), but it's not difficult to do and it is worth it because ffmpeg is an excellent tool. In terminal, you'd cd to the directory with your video that you want to slow down and use the ...

Amazon, HBO Go, and Xfinity all use silverlight, not flash, for their videos. My solution is to install PlayOnLinux, and run Firefox through wine. Then, install silverlight in the same prefix as Firefox. You have to use the wine version of firefox for these sites, but it works decently well. The automatic video quality usually sets the quality really ...

Actually, I found this answer myself snooping around at a later date, shortly before I switched to Arch Linux. In pavucontrol, you can head to your output device in question and select the "advanced" dropdown. There's an option labeled "Latency Offset". For some reason, mine was set to 1000.00. Simply set it to 0.00 and the problem goes away.

I had the same problem using 304/319 drivers from repositories, Nvidia has proprietary drivers on their website, installed from there they actually work quite well, I used this manual to remove remaining drivers and install the correct one directly from Nvidia. http://www.beginninglinux.com/home/graphics-drivers/install-nvidia-custom-driver-on-ubuntu-12-04 ...

You have a couple of options To use the default movie player install restricted codecs. Open Terminal sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras The option i HIGHLY RECOMMEND Open Repository(Software Center) Search for 'SMplayer' Install SMplayer. Open almost any multimedia files with SMplayer, no extra codecs needed!

I use VLC (ncurses edition) via "sudo apt-get install vlc-nox". I also installed Alsa utilities, to control the volume "sudo apt-get install alsa-utils". You'll be downloading a lot of multimedia libraries, without the X windows stuff. Make sure your userID is a member of "video" and "audio" groups. You can kick off a DVD via "vlc dvd:///dev/dvd". Or as ...

Could it be that you have Intel graphics? Then you might be experiencing this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/debian/+bug/1371834 A workaround is to use chrome or chromium version 37 or lower or kernel 3.17 or higher. Other workarounds are different options when starting chrome. See more in the bug thread and in the thread I link to in my comment #11.

After all I thrown out avconv and used actual version of ffmpeg from official site. There is a normal implementation of complex filters. Doesn't work means avconv crashing when i used such filters, more simple filters are not doing the job. The story was in April, mb now it's fixed but i'm not going to deal with avconv.

You do not need the + sign in the command. It means something quite different than you think. mkvmerge -o output.mkv input.mkv input.mka This should do the trick for you. The plus sign appends the streams from the second file to the first. So if you were to have two video files and you wanted to make a single file that plays first the video from file1 ...

In order to analise the similarities between your still images you can use the compare command from imagemagick package. You will probably need a -metric parameter. I personally didn't play much with it, but you can read about it here: -metric type Output to STDERR a measure of the differences between images according to the type given metric. To ...

In the event that your major intent is to play it in slow motion, and not to keep the file as MP4, you can use MKVmerge GUI tool to remux it into a Matroska container which can easily change the framerate. Remuxing is much better than reencoding, because it only changes the metadata, and not the stream itself. First you install the package sudo apt-get ...

In case you are looking for something graphical, you can consider using mkvtoolnix-gui package. It actually depends on the command line utility, but it will execute the command with all the needed options for you. The first thing that you'll need to do is to add the files containing all the needed streams. You do that (obviously) by pressing add button ...

The SGI Altix 3000 runs on IA64 processors. To cite an answer on ServerFault: Debian is still kicking out ia64 releases. If you're comfortable with Ubuntu, you'll find Debian quite familiar. With some apt repository tweaking, you'll be able to get similar package versions as well. I don't see why it wouldn't be able to make use of all the processors ...

If you do this often you can try to create a bash script.

Perhaps you are looking for different workflow. You can first cut out the parts that you want with oggz-chop. Simply type in the terminal: oggz-chop -o output.ogv -s start -e end input.ogv This should give you good files that you want to keep. Make sure you name them in some sequential order, to be able to deal with them later. After that: There is an ...

Sadly you are having an awful PC, the cpu worse than the only 1 GB of RAM. What you installed? Two must-have for a slow and outdated computer: preload and zram. So, open terminal and type sudo apt-get install preload zram-config -y Then reboot and tell me if your computer is in "better shape" ;)

Is this a laptop with speedstep? I had a breakthrough on this with an old laptop - a dell Inspiron 6000 (with no battery to speak of as its too old) First check you have good video drivers of course but then .. I noticed the CPU clock was all over the place but because some of the graphics is using the CPU I also think there is some hysteresis in effect ...

Minecraft has an FPS limit built-in. Try setting it to Unlimited. Ignore the fact that I am using Windows. I am at work and as such cannot boot into Ubuntu. I am also using Optifine, however that option is there in Vanilla MC as well.

Thank you all, for the various suggestions. I will try Ubuntu, Lubuntu, and Xubuntu, and I will also try the W3C standard HTML5 player. I do not think there are any more up to date drivers than I have, because Win 7 loaded the ATI driver, but I will go to AMD's site and try autodetect.

Go to http://www.youtube.com/html5 and click on blue button "Request Player HTML5". Youtube will priorize to play videos on W3C standard HTML5 player, not the Adobe Flash Player. If you play Full HD videos in 720p or 1080p, set your notebook to ATI Radeon board. The Intel onboard gagging. Update the video drivers. The answer is... YES, the Linux consumes ...

You can certainly try Ubuntu via a LiveDVD/USB session and see if that offers better playback, without actually installing it. Experimentation is probably the best answer here. I would not get your hopes up too much, though. YouTube videos did not play well on my dad's old HP desktop computer under Windows XP, and switching to Ubuntu offered no real ...

I have a very old laptop that is running lubuntu and plays youtube video's amazingly well. You will probably have better performance on Ubuntu, but it is very hardware specific. Lubuntu and Xubuntu have the best performance for older hardware, however default Ubuntu (unity) provides a more polished "out of the box" experience like you are used to on ...

The images have to be in a sequential order in order to create videos In avconv with images. If not it will fail with error message "IMG_%04d.JPG: No such file or directory" For that you can use the below script to rename the files in sequential order a=1 for i in *.JPG; do new=$(printf "%04d.JPG" ${a}) #04 pad to length of 4 mv ${i} ${new} let a=a+1 ...
