Laptops often overheat when their graphics cards are used near capacity. This is why gamers typically use cooling pads with them, and also why I recommend everyone use cooling pads all the time. I will now give you not one but two solutions. Buy a LARGE cooling pad wih one or two large diameter fans. they can actually cost less than units with smaller ...

A quick search on YouTube brought this video up as the first search result. I can't vouch for how helpful or accurate it is though (the person who made it mentions in the video that they are setting up a dual boot with Ubuntu 11.04, which is pretty old). This is a rather subjective question anyway, since there could be plenty of video tutorials available ...

You can configure Amazon prime to use flash for web browser streaming via their settings page. It will work with firefox using pepperflash, however, I cannot get chrome with pepperflash to work (Chrome: Version 39.0.2171.95 (64-bit), Ubuntu: 14.10). This will avoid the need for wine, but you still will not be able to cast it.

To download youtube videos without software extensions is possible, seeing as we are using ubuntu and thus have perl preinstalled and the great wget at our disposal. There is a Perl script at Calomel's site that I use for this purpose, which extracts the path of the video file and passes this path as a parameter to wget. If you haven't got wget installed (I ...

I've been having similar issues with VLC lately in 14.10. I use firefox with no plugin (all disabled) and mp4 plays fine as well.

I don't know of any help but the C source is just about readable for a novice. You want to look at the user_interface.c file. You're looking for anything that uses keyval. You can see when it's being matched against CLUTTER_... keys and the comments help work out what it does. For subtitles, V seems to be your key. See ~L413: case CLUTTER_v: case ...

Limited idea of an answer. Maybe a way would be to use the terminal commands through the context menu, for example in Nautilus with Nautilus-Actions. snappy -h says: -t, --subtitles Use this subtitle file So, then in nautilus-actions: And limiting that to specific files When selecting both the video and the subtitle file and ...

AVI and ISO are formats for completely different things. Think of an ISO more like a ZIP file. An AVI is a video file. You can put an AVI in to an ISO but you can't convert it because they are completely different things.

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.
