I might be late to the party, but I felt that one important answer was lacking. While After Effects has it's place in VFX, it is considered to be old fashioned by many specialists in the field due to the archaic UI. Most modern competitors to After Effects use a node based user interface, with nuke being the prominent contender. And while open source ...

In system settings, click on "Brightness and Lock", then turn off the LOCK toggle switch. It's locking because the video comes out of fullscreen for a second while switching episodes, and sets off the timer to automatically lock the screen. Long explanation : Normally auto lock is prevented while playing fullscreen videos, but it seems the timer is still ...

I found the final solution by trial and error, after my laptop gave me clues (it has win7 and 15.10 loaded), and after weeks of frustrations without help. I loaded everything I could find for dvd: gxine; libxine-all; everything for ffmpeg; python3dvd; quicktime -lib and -util. I reinstalled the libdvd-read -css2 etc as a precaution. This enabled 16.04 to at ...

All my MP4s were "muted" for no apparent reason. I found that I had previously configured the sound to go to the HDMI port, but this time HDMI was not attached. So I just used the "Settings" control panel, "Sound" section to re-select "built-in speakers".

pHash looks like a dead project and has not been updated since 2013. It references avcodec_alloc_frame which for years has been deprecated for av_frame_alloc, so it is likely incompatible with the current FFmpeg API. You'll either have to use an ancient FFmpeg version (not recommended), or update the pHash source to use the current FFmpeg libraries ...

When you are compiling a software, what you need is the development libraries and not the runtime libraries/tools. Specifically what you are missing here is the libavcodec-dev package. Install it as usual with apt and then run ./configure again. You will likely bump into another error saying you are missing another library. Use apt-cache search or the web to ...

These are instructions for getting xfinity to work in Linux, without a VM or playonlinux. Playonlinux was slow and crashed for me. I am sharing these instructions since setting this back up after I upgraded my system took too long. The solution for xfinity on Linux is Firefox + pipelight + UA override. Assume Firefox is installed. No silverlight in ...

Not much of help in your question, but I have the same issue. That "auto" in xrandr looks for a screen to set the resolution and so on at boot. I have a vague memory of running a "manual" xrandr command at startup to force the resolution in case the screen hasn't been detected,

Why Your online class has purposefully caused you to have these troubles. They will vary (randomize) the type of mpeg4 encoders used from lesson to lesson, vary the video and audio bit rate and change the length of the audio/video so stitching them together causes errors. The problems you are dealing with now are just the tip of the iceburg on the games ...

I'd say you Ubuntu touch device doesn't have support for hardware decoding of WebM where as most phones and tablets e.g. the M10 will have hardware which decodes H.264 so it doesn't take up time on the main CPU while playing H.264 videos. I'm sure you can install something to play WebM especially if you get the phone/tablet into read/write mode, that said I ...

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 ...
