Open-source Blu-ray playback is a cat and mouse game, which involves constantly waiting for hackers to discover up-to-date keys to play more recent titles. But there is another option, involving partially proprietary closed-source software, which is (for the moment) free to use on Linux. MakeMKV is an application that decodes Blu-ray disks and saves them to ...

aptitude is able to resolve the dependency problem by running: sudo aptitude install vlc The actual conflict is the package libpostproc-extra-52, which can be resolved by running sudo apt-get purge libpostproc-extra-52 sudo apt-get install vlc

There is no need to install ubuntu-restricted-extras to be able to play WebM with VLC. VLC 2.1.2 supports VP9 by default (see http://www.webmproject.org/vp9/ and http://www.videolan.org/vlc/releases/2.1.2.html). You might try upgrading VLC or installing the latest stable by downloading it from the VLC site directly.

Pause video file and create a playlist for it (CTRL + Y). Create a bookmark (CTRL + B). To resume watching, open the saved playlist, NOT the video file itself. That said, according to this article, VLC 3 will have a native resume feature. This feature, as described in the link I supplied, seems to already be implemented on version 2.2 of VLC in Ubuntu ...

Some portable linux apps here including VLC 2.1.2 x64. How to use the downloaded portable VLC To create a launcher for that can be useful: The simplest way is to copy/paste lines from a pre-existing VLC desktop file if present in /usr/share/applications.

14.10 is a version of Ubuntu with a shorter support period. Problems are solved more quickly on this version, but it also has more problems. For stability, always choose LTS versions. See this Q&A for more info. Furthermore, copy-paste or cut-paste should make no difference, however the way you remove the USB disk has an impact. If you just yank it ...

I did a fresh install of 14.04.1 in December, and have this issue as well. I did not have any issue with Xubuntu 14.10. I am still having other sound-related issues though; Ubuntu randomly jumps from HDMI to Analog to No sound at each reboot, but I assumed the VLC error was just an offshoot of that. But, it sounds like this is a different bug altogether. ...

So I ended up using Synaptic to correct the problem. No package were broken, but by navigating through all the packages involved, I selected & removed all those marked for audio files. That is because I tried to install Rythme Box and although I could open it, it was very buggy. I had previously used it and it was fine. That led me to think that there ...

You can install and use Pulseaudio Volume Control. Go to the Ubuntu Software Centre and search for pavucontrol: Or use the following command in your cli: sudo apt-get install pavucontrol Now start pavucontrol from the Ubuntu Dash (not the sound icon): And select the desired output device under playback: Happy listening!

By chance, have you done a recent update? Maybe try an update with Synaptic by reloading and apply any updates then try installing VLC through Synaptic after checking for broken packages. I had a weird instance installing VLC in Zorin OS 9 and if memory serves me correctly this is what worked. Worth a quick try, anyways.

You can use two cron lines like this to make a ~10 minute recording from 0755. 55 7 * * 1-5 cvlc --run-time=5 --sout file/ts:stream.mp4 htsp://@ip:9982/211 5 8 * * 1-5 sh -c "killall cvlc; cp stream.mp4 /path/to/upload" I've added 1-5 in the fifth field so it only runs Monday to Friday. VLC is hard to stop recording without actual controls. The ...

None of the above will actually remove all vlc packages, (usually 6-7). Better to do - sudo apt-get purge vlc-data

Try to run these commands. sudo apt-get remove vlc sudo apt-get remove browser-plugin-vlc sudo apt-get purge vlc

vlc depends on vlc-nox which installs the vlc command that you see. Remove it specifically, or use autoremove: apt-get autoremove # or apt-get remove vlc-nox

I had the same problem and I resolved it like this: Open the file .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list with a text editor (gedit for example). If you have this line: application/octet-stream=vlc.desktop; erase vlc.desktop Save & restart computer.

Edit : Follow this link to fix the unmet dependency problem. Go to your Terminal ( Ctrl+Alt+T ) and type the following commands : sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras sudo apt-get install vlc This will install vlc, it's dependencies and you should be able to play videos without any problem.

I had the same problem (green bar on the right) in addition to a purple bar on the left side of my screen. Solution #1 Under System Settings > Displays, on the left, try changing your Resolution/Aspect Ratio until it looks right. For me switching from a 16:9 ratio to a 16:10 worked but I wasn't into the lower resolution so I explored a little more and ...

The FFmpeg compilation instructions you followed should not interfere with VLC, or any other packages in the repository at all, because it performs a local "installation" into your home directory and does not install to the system. "Installation" here being a debatable term since to uninstall it you simply delete the FFmpeg files in ~/bin and the ...

Apparently, there were some issues (that I don't know the details of and am not implying any comment on) when ffmpeg was forked into libav and the package was removed from Debian. Apparently, this caused issues for some applications that were built against libav but were developed using ffmpeg. Browsing around, I also see users of other distros talking about ...

Yes, but there are caveats. Films on Blu-ray ROMs are encrypted according to a standard known as AACS, which dictates multiple layers of encryption using multiple keys, including one physically printed on the disk, a volume id, which prevents one from burning working copies. (A very good explanation is given on Wikipedia here.) Each approved OEM Blu-ray ...

Get hold of w_scan to scan for the channels you want, the data it collects will create a vlc playlist of all channels it finds. (if the broadcasters update their channel details, you will need to scan again) Then open playlist with vlc. For example I scan for freesat channels in the UK using w_scan in a terminal. The command I use is w_scan -fs -s S28E2 -L ...
