The solution was to install and switch to the Xfce desktop interface. It uses much less RAM than the standard Ubuntu 14.04 desktop interface (Unity), but can still be personalised and made attractive. When I log in I still have the option of using the standard Ubuntu set up, but it makes my old laptop too laggy to bother with so I always log into Xfce ...

I think I found the fix. Source: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/1314367/comments/22 so far so good. I'll update this if it starts flickering again.

Choose the entry you want to change (in a normal installation the first entry) and press e to edit it. Look for quiet splash" and add "nomodeset before it. Finally press F10 to ...

My system was so badly beaten up that I decided to upgrade to a still supported version, 12.04, and so after cloning the disk with clonezilla and pressing upgrade (and a lot of waiting), I was happy to see that nothing I cared about was broken, and the video problem was fixed after installing the recommended nvidia drivers. In other words, taking the plunge ...

well after playing around with Totem for a while the only thing I can think of is that the vid has to be longer than 3 min for Totem to actually apply the position save of the chosen file...If it's any shorter, I guess you could maybe add a chapter in the file before closing...

After messing around a bit, I found that guvcview will show the video stream when it is plugged in to a USB 2.0 port, instead of the USB 3.0 port I was using before. Cheese will not work, however. I did manage to get a few seconds of video out of it before giving the same error message. VLC also works through USB 2.

Your issue is that you probably have a Nvidia card or AMD card, and you don't have proper drivers for it. If you could post your system specs in your answer, it would help a lot. Also post if you have integrated or on board graphics, and let me know if you have them disabled or not(If you know). I've found that manual installs work best for installing ...

Remove the package you installed from terminal, then reboot. Open up the Additional Drivers dialog. Look for it in the applications menu, I believe under either System or Settings. Once that finishes searching, it should come up with a window. If multiple drivers are listed, select and activate the one that says [Recommended] next to its name in the list. ...

I found the solution. The correct command is avconv -i test1.mp4 -strict experimental kkk.mov If we don't add -strict experimental, the conversion is not properly done. The same can be used for ffmpeg.

If you have the URL of a YouTube video, you can download it just normally with wget. Even the continue option -c works. The problem is to get the URL. The URL is part of the inner workings of the YouTube system software. It is generated by one system component, and used by another - not intended to be used anywhere else. You need to know how to find this ...

I've run into this problem before. The way I found that works for me, is to turn off mirroring, then auto-adjust your secondary monitor.

The problem The subtitles filter requires libass as a dependency, but your build is missing --enable-libass. Solution You will have to compile ffmpeg with libass support, or download a build from the FFmpeg Download page (under the "Linux Static Builds" section).

My first guess to this topic: It is because your input file is not a video but instead the subtitles file. ffmpeg -i 24.903.hdtv-lol_ar.srt -vf subtitles=24.903.hdtv-lol_ar.srt out.avi Use the AVI file as input instead

Try it and after installation, ...

Adobe stopped supporting Flash for Linux, so other browsers will either depend on workarounds are an outdated version of flash.
