You should definitely give Substital a try. It is a browser extension I created for Chrome and Firefox that will let you add subtitles on online streaming movies. I am myself using it on Ubuntu. It's easier than VLC since you won't have to worry about finding the stream URL. If the video player on the web page is supported (and it supports many common ...

Figured it out. Somehow, firefox tried to stream the audio to some airplay speakers on the network. (something that actually never worked). This caused the video to stall. Killing the WIFI (network) allowed the video to play and send audio to the local device, re-enableling the network caused it to stall again...

Flash is a very CPU intensive application and once the CPU heats, flash performance drops considerably. In your case I believe the problem goes a little further and stops the display of the content. Also see: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1193567

14.04 does not provide a HEVC codec. There is simply no way to do this in a manner that is vetted by Canonical. You have to either: Add a repo that provides one Grab the code from upstream, "vet it" yourself and build it. Even if you cherry pick the packages from 16.04, it's the Debian Multimedia Maintainers and Ubuntu MOTUs, not Canonical who are ...

According to this website, that camera will work out of the box. You should just be able to plug it in and use it. You can test it out by installing the program Cheese, available from the Ubuntu Software Center. A more recent post (2014) states that the camera works perfectly fine on 12.04.

Lord Neckbeard is right. WMV comperession is poor. The best compression available at the moment of writing is H.265 Example: H.265 HEVC video + stream copied audio in Matroska ffmpeg -i inputfile -c:a copy -c:v libx265 -preset veryfast -x265-params crf=25 -vf scale=-8:ih outputfile.mkv Quoting Lord Neckbeards accurate statements.

Changing the / to a ? works for me, but I have no idea why cvlc rtsp://192.168.2.33:554?user=admin&password=&channel=2&stream=1.sdp?real_stream--rtp-caching=100 you might also try cvlc rtsp://192.168.2.33:554/?user=admin&password=&channel=2&stream=1.sdp?real_stream--rtp-caching=100

So it could be that the site your friend visits requires newer version. It is suggested to try alternatives to Adobe flash. Pepper flash that comes with google chrome should be supported and up to ...

I have the same issue. Note that with the SDCard inserted in a SDCard reader I can see all files, so I think it is not due to the filesystem. I have reported the issue to GoPro support. They say that GoPro doesn't give support for Linux, that could lead to think that GoPro do not work with Linux.

You need to add the directory where you've installed ffmpeg to your $PATH, the list of directories where executables can be found. The simplest way is to add this line to your ~/.profile: export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/ffmpeg Note that you need to add the directory containing the ffmpeg executable and not the executable itself. Then, log out and log back in ...

It turns out this is simple. Selecting Movie-> Properties puts the desired info back on the sidebar and then totem stays that way upon opening the next movie until you request the playlist again. See below:

Capturing the mouse I'm guessing you were missing some XCB dependencies so ffmpeg was unable to capture the mouse. You'll need a new ffmpeg. If you want to compile make sure to install the XCB dependencies: libxcb1-dev libxcb-shm0-dev libxcb-xfixes0-dev. See FFmpeg Wiki: Ubuntu Compile Guide for more details. Alternatively, you could probably use mc3man's ...

You should try to use nouveau.modeset=0 instead nomodeset. The issue that you have is a kind of incompatibility between nouveau open source driver and some Nvidia graphic cards. I've got the same problem with a PC with a Nvidia GTX950M: nomodeset didn't work, but nouveau.modeset=0 worked. P.S. once you have installed Ubuntu, to keep things working, you ...

The following will correct the width to a number divisible by 8 and then correctly rescale the height to a number divisible by 8 while maintaining correct aspect ratio: ffmpeg -i <input> \ -c:a copy \ -c:v libx265 -preset medium -x265-params crf=28 \ -vf scale="trunc(iw/8)*8:-8" \ <output> As a bonus if the width is ...

Obtaining the width is relatively simple with mediainfo. If you don't have it you can install it with sudo apt-get install mediainfo width=$(mediainfo '--Inform=Video;%Width%' $filename) Determining divisibility by 8 can be done via if [ $(( $width % 8 )) -eq 0 ] ; then echo "Your number is divisible by 8 – you may convert it” else echo "Video width ...
