I recommend SMPlayer it's my fav. it's got Youtube browser built-in. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rvm/smplayer sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install smplayer smtube smplayer-themes smplayer-skins Alternative is Youtube Viewer. P.S. Because of Google policies and restrictions if you can't play VEVO videos for now this is how it's gonna be.

Chances are the system BIOS is not liking the way Ubuntu is running on your system. You might need to make a grub modification to make Suspend/Sleep/Hibernate work properly with the BIOS. The idea would be to make it think that it is a Windows system. To do this, you need to modify the grub default file. Open a terminal window and type in: sudo nano ...

This integrated video adapter GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a never worked well with proprietary nvidia-304 drivers. It works quite well with nvidia-173, but it is not supported in Ubuntu 15.04, as far as I know. I would suggest one of these solutions. Try open source driver. It should work quite well for this chip. Install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with nvidia-173 ...

All Nvidia cards have drivers for Ubuntu. And there are lots of Nvidia cards with DVI and VGA outputs. You can buy any of those.

Generally the open source video driver works well for most applications that are not using the video card a lot, but there is also the proprietary NVidia driver you can install through Software and Updates -> Additional Drivers and unless the card you choose is very recent (in which case it could be unstable without updates) there should be no problem at ...

I realize that this thread is pretty old, but I found some information that may help any future visitors who come here as I did in a desperate search for answers. I have a circa-2004 Dell Dimension 2400 with the 82845G chipset that I really wanted to install Linux on for a client, and was about to give up - esp. after reading numerous posts like this - when ...

Chapters are a native functionality of mp4 or mkv containers, whatever the encoding you use in them. So there is no need for a separate cue file sheet. You can use handbrake to rip your DVD. It supports chapters by default, and will generate them in your output file (mp4 or mkv) automatically. When you rip the DVD, you can edit the chapter names in the ...

You don't necessarily need to ditch flash you could install google Chrome to chromium chrome from Googles web site and it has flash built in. Or you could install the adobe flash plugin from the Ubuntu software center for free just type flash or adobe flash and you will find it. Hope this helps.

You can set number of threads in video codec settings. For instance, go to VLC settings and set ffmpeg number of threads to 6. It will automatically use all cpu's.

It's just that the bandwidth of the USB ports is not enough to stream the data from the cameras. Try enabling them at a low resolution, or connect them in different ports.

I had the same problem and then come up with an open-source cross-platform subtitle player, Penguin Subtitle Player. It works in the same way as greenfish but it works well also on Linux and OSX so one can play srt files on top of a web browser (or whatever). Download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/penguinsubtitleplayer/ Source: ...

Just a post for anyone who is interested. I ended up upgrading and re-installing v4.10 of Ubuntu. As soon as I did this the video acceleration in YouTube and Flash worked a treat. I have now upgraded further to v15.04, this version also works a treat for video playback on 4K. My recommendation based on my experience is that you DO NOT install the AMD ...

You could install arandr. Use arandr to set up your screen. Then save the screen configuration to a script. Create a new Application Autostart item and copy the command from the script there or you could set the script to run at startup.

In the Additional Drivers ...

As shown in image you can set any value of width or height of video, in your case height=480p Installation download deb from here. (easy way to go, but you wont get updates) or go by PPA ( for Ubuntu 14.10 and previous versions; ...

You may have a too weak CPU and graphics for videos. You can try a tweak that helps some intel graphics chips, UXA acceleration. This should increase the performance, but there seem to be issues with the login screen with this fix. Edit (or create) /etc/X11/xorg.conf as follows: Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" ...

It's a Flash problem, not a Firefox problem... I use the following workaround (this is not a solution, maybe someone else will have a better idea, but in the mean time, it'll help): Note the time you're stuck in the video Do a hard refresh Ctrl+F5 Play the video again and click on the time just before you had the problem. This seems to work in 90% of ...

Changing VLC's video output to OpenGL in Preferences → Video worked to fix this problem. (Thanks to wedu for suggesting to check the available video options. I'm not sure why I hadn't thought of that.)

It is possible to use the cam with zoneminder but I do not recommend, it's a hell of a job to find out the settings and it will not always connect. Since the latest version of firefox server push doesn't work anymore. To see a streaming video you have to use Google Chrome browser.

OK, I found mpv (a fork of mplayer) which does everything I wanted and carried all the good UI qualities from mplayer2. To enable vaapi support, run it with mpv --vo=opengl-hq --hwdec=vaapi file.mkv or add vo=opengl-hq hwdec=vaapi to ~/.config/mpv/mpv.conf. Previously the answer suggested using vo=vaapi and hwdec=vaapi but this is not a recommended ...

SNA is the best acceleration method. You should check your config file if you have one. Another way is to renice the process. For example: ps ax|grep mplayer find the given process and renice it renice -20 43332 You can do it as root only (maybe it is possible with sudo: sudo renice -20 43332 ).

Why not a terminal. This is not rocket science. You will not be happy with Linux, if you never want to use a terminal. You could use youtube-dl. Open a terminal an run these commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install youtube-dl For a GUI: sudo apt-get install youtube-dlg Run the GUI version ...
