install all the above. install the QUICKTIME files. this should enable you to play the dvd. if you get an error about blocks, likely your drive is faulty.

install the QUICKTIME files via Synaptic.

Since everything in Linux is a file, a running process is as such as well a file which is located in the /proc folder in which you should not mess around in by hand the probability is very high that at least one task of VLC kept that file for the process alive. So normally a simple reboot after uninstalling VLC would probably have solved it. About your ...

I think that the order of commands is important. The command to install the libdvd(css/read4/nav4) should have come first, and then the libdvd-pkg install command should have been issued. The simple thing is to try: sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Just in case someone else has this problem, I'll go ahead and post my solution. After discovering it was profile specific, I set off to try to find relevant config settings. The solution for me was to remove/rename the ~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0 folder. I did rename a few others, but I'm fairly certain this was the fix.

I found that a workaround is to install MPV Media Player, and it plays HD videos fullscreen with no chopping.

I found that I needed to lower my post-processing setting in VLC. Disable it to see if you no longer get any green screen issues and then increase it incrementally to find the sweet spot.

In Tools > Preferences > Video > Output change to "OpenGL GLX video output(XCB), save and restart vlc. If you use Intel GPU, following setting speeds up decoding. In Tools > Preferences > Input/Codecs > Hardware-accelerated decoding chant to "VA-API video decoder via X11"

in addition, we need to install the QUICKTIME -lib and -util via Synaptic. this solved my problem why commercial dvd in China would not play.

the problem was caused by deinterlace settings. I am now using yadif deinterlacing mode.

What you did should work. What happens is that vlc opens the first folder immediately and starts playing, so when you look at the playlist, you will see the list of files in the first folder. The second folder is into expanded immediately, so you don't see its files, only its name. For example: $ ls dir1 dir2 dir1: 1.wav 2.wav 3.wav dir2: 4.wav 5.wav ...

I had exactly the same problems. The solution was 2 parts. Part 1 is to install the Quicktime drivers: -lib and -dvd [use synaptic for this], and to ensure the VLC install is complete and up to date. Part 2 is to ensure your dvd drive can process the blocks [my old dvd drive could not, so I bought a new one]. Now, all problems solved.

I have a problem of setting this by pressing keys. The system does not grab a combination of fn+any key. If this is the case, just edit ~/.config/vlc/vlcrc add the following lines at the beginning of the file: global-key-play-pause=Media Play Pause global-key-next=Media Next Track global-key-prev=Media Prev Track

I'm having the similar problem. Can't also install steam from its website. They are both waiting on the task bar saying "waiting to install". I'm a newbie and really can use every suggestion.

May be vlc-plugin-pulse is not installed: run sudo apt-get install vlc-plugin-pulse in a terminal to verify. You can also change VLC, audio setting: go to "tools" => "preferences"=> "audio": try to select another "output module" ,: It could be alsa or pulseaudio depending on your audio config. (restart VLC after change)

This could help, once my friend had this issue and following these steps fixed it: Removed ~/.config/pulse directory. Started Pulse Audio. rm -rf ~/.config/pulse pulseaudio --start Incase if its still showing errors you will have to reinstall pulse audio and equalizer. sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio pulseaudio-equalizer sudo apt-get install pulseaudio ...

Option 1: Delete the ~/.config/vlc and ~/.cache/vlc folders. To do this execute : rm -r ~/.config/vlc ~/.cache/vlc Note : Old versions of VLC had the data stored in ~/.vlc Option 2: Execute : vlc --reset-config Option 3: Open VLC --> Tools-->Preferences-->Reset Preferences

You can reset the preferences using the menu: Tools → Preferences

Answering myself. The option at Preferences->Video->Use Hardware Acceleration controls how graphics are drawn on screen, not how videos are decoded. The option to disable VDPAU is at Preferences->Input & Codecs. Then look for "Hardware accelerated decoding" and change VDPAU for any of the other options, I'm using X11 VA-API. And problem ...

A year later... I just discovered that VLC does not use whatever connection the desktop supplies, whether it's Gnome or KDE. It creates its own using credentials defined in the settings: Tools > Preferences Show settings: All Input / Codecs > Access Modules > SMB Thanks to Joris for the information.

The easiest way to solve this would be to go into vlc click the tools menu then preferences check the allow only one instance and use only one instance when starting form file manager and that should take care of your problem


2

check in ~/.local/share/applications/ and delete all files that seem related to the applications involved.

Did you try to delete the vlc settings as described in http://sourcedigit.com/16683-how-to-solve-3-common-problems-with-vlc-in-ubuntu-15-0414-0414-10/ I found another hint wich solved the problem for me: https://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?t=132705 "...in Preferences => Input / Codecs => Hardware-accelerated decoding. Set to "Disable"..."

The short answer is : the DRM required by 40D to prevent you skipping their adverts is not compatible with linux because it has not be implemented. I haven't managed to get 40D to work on linux for several years, there are hackish workarounds involving running windows plugins in your browser but the performance hit is huge and using wine is cumbersome and ...
