The height of the video is shrunk by the same factor as the width. I do not see any distortion, it is just a scaling which conserves the aspect ratio of the video. But it would be desirable that the video area is not shrunk. This seems to be impossible with vlc. After the "padding", you can adjust the area of the video by shiftig the window borders. That ...

Apparently you can't do it in VLC as it needs to draw on the canvas, hence the workaround that allows you to pad the video. As someone noted on the VLC forums 1 this is cumbersome because you need to set it up each time the resolution changes.

As I know, Chrome uses PPAPI-based plugins ONLY now, while vlc-browser-plugin is NPAPI-based, so it's unavailable for Chrome. Just use another browser.

I found out why this is happening. Because I change something in sound settings. To change it back to normal, I go to settings, sounds and choose Speakers (Built-in Audio) in the Output tab instead of HDMI/Display Port. Now it sounds/plays like a breeze :D

On 14.04, clementine is still using the gstreamer0.10 plugins and since ape support is provided by the ffmpeg plugin you need to set up the following PPA to play ape files: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg I tested both vlc and clementine at the same time using this sample file ...

Have you looked at using Webdav instead. It is a HTTP based file share. This is the direction I am currently leaning. I just started researching this as a option. I have a 8tb raid5 running ubuntu server and streaming to multiple VER1 Apple TV's stripped of factory OS and running XBMC. (trying to cut the cord with sat. provider) Having issues with samba and ...

What you installed on Windows doesn't matter to Linux (or for that matter, to another Windows installation). Yes No, you need not uninstall MS Office. Yes, most files should open fine in LibreOffice. Yes Yes If you use Steam on Wine, you should be able to use the library you already have downloaded, but that has it's own set of problems, and for a game ...

You can't take any installed programs from Windows to Ubuntu Linux. After installing Ubuntu, you have to install any program you need. You have to install DotA2 and the Steam Client after installing Ubuntu. I know, downloading DotA2 takes ages... There is no MS Office for any Linux Version. And I doubt ther will ever be one. However, Ubuntu comes along ...

I found this helpful thread that fixed my problem. No Sound on Ubuntu 12.04 I ran the code stated in the answer and it fixed the issue for videos with 720p and below. I'm still experiencing the problem for any 1080p files.

For some reason VLC was crashing on start when opening .mp4 files on Ubutuntu 14.04. This may not work for others but it worked for me: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get remove --purge vlc sudo apt-get install vlc I would try upgrading before doing this and seeing if you need to updateVLC. I didn't need to update it, just had to reinstall because VLC ...

Ok in the end I ended up removing all libavcodec* and libavutil* packages (this server has been upgraded multiple times so seemed to have some old ones). I then used this guide to build libfdk-aac/ffmpeg/vlc http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2141949 However my command doesn't work on vlc master or 2.2 branches - no .ts file is written. So I have ...

You may indeed be missing some codecs, because they are separated out to some extra packages in ubuntu. There are two conflicting variants of the packages, one ith -extra in the name. Also, there are reports that installing the packages may mess up the package management; At least I have had to resolve conflicts manually a couple of times. You need ...

If the symptoms look similar to the question, but the details with the codec seem to be different, it may be a messed up configuration of vlc - that seems to happen sometimes. Here is what you can do: To me, that looks like the error regarding the encoder is just following from other errors - why do you think the problem it the encoder? It could be caused ...
