I was trying to play a video of H265 mkv format on ubuntu 14.04. Whenever I try to play the video on totem,the video goes on for a few seconds and then totem crashes.

In VLC,the window crashes immediately.I have installed all the plugins for playing H265 but both of the softwares are not playing the video.

i have installed vlc-plugin-libde265,gstreamer0.10-libde265 and libde265 from repository ppa:strukturag/libde265

having this problem for x265 codec files only other files play fine on both players.

output of vlc in terminal

    crsag@SAG:~$ totem
    VLC media player 2.1.6 Rincewind (revision 2.1.6-0-gea01d28)
    [0x8128190] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.

  • run vlc with -vvv option to see more output. But segfault should not happen, even if your file is broken. – Dimitri Podborski Jan 13 '16 at 20:00
  • @incBrain the file isn't broken in my case... I ran the same file in Windows after upgrading VLC, it is running peacefully... In Ubuntu-14.04, however it is crashing! – Tanny Aug 29 '16 at 6:53
