I use VLC (ncurses edition) via "sudo apt-get install vlc-nox". I also installed Alsa utilities, to control the volume "sudo apt-get install alsa-utils". You'll be downloading a lot of multimedia libraries, without the X windows stuff. Make sure your userID is a member of "video" and "audio" groups. You can kick off a DVD via "vlc dvd:///dev/dvd". Or as ...

There are two ways you can instruct VLC to quit playback after the playlist is played fully: By supplying the --play-and-exit CLI option, e.g.: cvlc --play-and-exit audio1.mp3 audio2.mp3 or vlc --play-and-exit audio1.mp3 audio2.mp3 By adding the dummy item vlc://quit to your playlist, e.g.: cvlc audio1.mp3 audio2.mp3 vlc://quit or vlc audio1.mp3 ...

Probably it's just that vlc needs some more time after the seek operation to resync and play audio / video properly. This can happen with some poorly encoded video files that might be huge or just have incorrect/obsolete structure. Try changing the video file and see if you still face the same behavior.

Is it possible that VLC is for some reason ignoring the config file or recreating it? What I'm finding is that the config file is setup per user and the below location would be where one could find the file. I'm curious if perhaps that file is getting recreated every time? Linux / Unix: $(HOME)/.config/vlc/vlcrc (v0.9.0 and above), $(HOME)/.vlc/vlcrc (v0.8 ...

Yay, I fixed it on my own! I just removed the repository I added above and updated with the commands sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/videolan-* && sudo apt-get update

I don't have a specific answer for that situation but you can usually find out (or get around it) with some troubleshooting: Most of the upgrade issues are caused by some former settings / config files not being handled gracefully by the newer version of a package. Packages do their best to either be backwards compatible or migrate user's settings so that ...

I'm assuming that SMplayer can play your WMV files but totem and VLC can not. so here's the solution: look for libavcodec extra in synaptic package manager and mark it for remove. it shows you a list of to be removed softwares and packages. press ok and do apply then log out. log back in and remove ubuntu-restricted-extras in software center. log out ...

This is a complementary answer to the main one. Depending on the aspect ratio, a video image may have or may not have a black space under the video. Considering the linked answer: when the picture has a black space below it, it also has a black space above it, and so the picture is not squeezed, but moved upwards, while the above space is diminished ...

I think the answer under the other question provides a solution in VLC but only suitable to certain aspect ratios. Depending on the aspect ratio, a video image may have or may not have a black space under the video. Considering the linked answer: when the picture has a black space below it, it also has a black space above it, and so the picture is not ...

Short answer Sounds like an overheating problem. Long answer Video decoding (without proper hardware acceleration support) and scientific computing are very demanding tasks and will consume more electric power and consequently heat up your computer. If too much dust assembles over time, the internal fans aren't able to keep enough cool air streaming ...

Open vlc and then go to preferences > video > select in the output "X11 video output" (you can mess with this to find the one that works best for you). That's it :P

There are two possibilities on how to grab video from a TV tuner : You can grab the video-stream from composite video output such as audio/video connectors on the back of satellite receiver. You request the composite video input of the TV tuner with this command: vlc v4l2://dev/video0:input=1 or you can add :input=1 to video0 in the GUI input= could be ...

I had the exact same problem, go into the settings and disable hardware acceleration, after that you won't have any annoying green lines.
