Hello  :

As some of you may remember I was the newbie that installed Ubuntu Mate maybe a year ago after some interesting posts. Still a newbie but getting better with it.

 

For a change I started removing some software and screw up the whole thing, and had to reinstall Ubuntu Mate.

 

To my surprise VLC and all them video players couldn't play my video files (all of 'em are 720), black box only with audio, SMplayer a complete disaster with two screens and subtitles bigger than the screen.

 

Reinstalled Ubuntu Mate but the 32 version (had the 64 and thought maybe it was too much) but the problem persists.

I've been configuring the video preferences a little bit but videos are not the same anymore, looks like watching a 1080 mkv file, distorted, slow, freezing, in a word : a mess.

 

Thanks in advance for whatever trick that may help.

 

Cheers.

Hi Terokal,
 
Try starting vlc from the terminal; play a video file and copy and paste any error messages from the terminal into a post here.

Also please post the output of the following command:
inxi -Fz

Are these videos ones you encoded or ones you got from say itunes or something?

Sounds like DRM

Madman is right, DRM is a big deal these days, as those in the entertainment industry are robbed of countless amounts of cash from royalties every year. 

 

The industry has made attempts over the last 4 decades to prevent copyright violations, going back to the early days of VCR tapes (I recall Macrovision being among the first to roll out on a mass scale). Today, there are greater protections, along with penalties for offenders. ISP's can cut off service for repeat offenders, and violators can be further penalized by the justice system. 

 

So there's a chance that what you want to see has some type of copyright protection built in & preventing you from viewing. If so, note that we cannot provide assistance on how to work around any protections. :)

Hi Cat1092 , thanks for answering.
It's weird cause I have no troubles before with those files until 3 days ago when I reinstall Ubuntu Mate ... looks like there are problems with VLC and other players with the new versions of UBUNTU ... that's what I've read in forums, but what they talk about and the solutions are far from my reach (like I don't understand a thing they're saying) ... mkv files most of them downloaded 1 year ago ... trying to watch now one a friend gave me the day this PC went south, a homemade video he did (a music clip in which me and my dog appear) and it's the same thing, almost imposible to watch ... this is what TERMINAL shows :

That (revision 2.2.2-0-g6259d80) calls my atention ... I don't recall installing any revision version or upload.
 

 

Gonna try to run of those mkv files, maybe it shows something different if I don't type cvlc :

All I can hope is that there's a solution, like uninstalling VLC, trying it again, or another player ... 

 

Maybe another player would be in order, there is likely one or more on the Software Manager to try. Am not on a Linux system at the moment, though here's a good place to start. :)

 

http://www.tecmint.com/10-best-open-source-video-players-for-linux-in-2015/

 

And if all fails, you can reinstall your prior distro where your videos worked after back up of your files, preferably using two methods. The inbuilt backup tool (or Timeshift & Aptik), plus using an external, create a folder (a NTFS formatted drive is fine), and copy all of the sub-folders with content inside of your main Home folder into the one on the external by using the drag & drop method. I prefer that over any backup method with Linux, because post install of the new OS, can delete the like sub-folders of the new install where there is a like folder saved & copy the same folders back, one by one. Depending on how much data is stored, plus whether it's connected by USB 2.0 or 3.0 (or eSATA/USB 3.1), will determine how much time it takes to copy to an external & back over. 

 

If you want to save your bookmarks/extensions, simply follow any instructions on how to create an account & you get to keep these also. :)    Firefox makes this painless (about 5-10 minutes total), so does Google Chrome, plus you get the benefit of 15GB of free storage. Which is valuable when used with the Insync client when on promo for free. Dropbox users also gets 2GB of free storage, not a lot, yet great to have for when in a jam. 

 

So if needed, you can revert back to an earlier version of Linux & lose nothing, the same applies to new clean installs, as well as future upgrades when one wants to keep their files, yet install cleanly. Done properly, one loses nothing, which is good for all. :)

 

Note that I didn't learn these things overnight, and I don't expect anyone else to. Though I learn a lot simply by the reading of articles, which I do most every day. :thumbup2:

 

I feel confident, that no matter what you have to do, you'll regain access to your files, even if that means moving away from Ubuntu MATE. However, if you otherwise enjoy the OS, I recommend that you take a look at the link above & try a few extra media players. While VLC is an excellent media player, and far more capable than many, it's not the only one available to you. Because with Linux, you have choices. :)

 

Please keep us informed of your progress & when you find the one that works for you, let us know which one done the trick. A little hint, out of that list, XBMC (now Kodi) is likely while among the top media solutions, is also the hardest to configure. I've played with it, was wanting it to be a replacement for a TV, yet no success. Admittedly, it's me likely not knowing what I'm doing. :P

 

Yet Kodi should be much user friendly to configure, regardless of which OS one is using, here's some tips if you'd like to try, as well as requirements, that I just now discovered. :)

 

http://kodi.wiki/view/Linux

 

Though keep in mind other other than VLC & Kodi, there's 8 other options on the list. :thumbsup:

 

Good Luck!

Hello Cat, thanks for the tips, lots of different players on that list, SMPlayer won't work, that's for sure ... maybe I can try searching for the older version of UBUNTU MATE when I first left windows, couldn't find it when trying to reinstall it all ... or maybe Puppy Linux ... lots of choices ... first I'll try some of the video players of that list ... maybe Wizard can help me with the distros (hey mate, are you reading this?)

 

Thank you very much. I'll let you know how it goes. :thumbup2:

 

Cheers.

I'm not on Linux, but when I experience problems with VLC, I use MPLAYER until the maintainer happen to fix it.

Terokal, your CPU seems a little slow for HD, but if it worked before, I guess it should be fine...  You may check if you can have the latest version of VLC, mine is currently vlc-2.2.4.  It makes all the difference sometimes.  Also, people who have playback issues got lucky just by changing the many/different playback/demux options of VLC.  So try different ones, and if nothing change, put it back to the value it was originally.  These options seems to change from versions to versions, and that can 'break' things, unfortunately for us users.

Hello Dodolso, just uninstalled VLC, was driving me nuts ... was checking other threads with possible solutions (changing lots of things on the "preferences" menu, following what other were advising) and simply got tired of it ... I've tried SMPlayer again, KIDO, XINE won't work with Ubuntu ... same bad results ... if nothing runs ok I'm thinking about changing to Puppy Linux, and see how it works ... cheers.

Hello, Terokal.

 

Personally, I wouldn't give you tuppence for all those VIA chips ya got in there. I well remember a thread on the Ubuntu Forums around 18 months ago; all to do with graphics problems on a VIA graphics chip.....it ran to over 37 pages (nearly 400 posts, as I recall), and AFAIK, it never did get resolved.

 

However, if you've been able to play these movies & stuff okay until a few days ago, then yes, I can well believe it's summat to do with 16.04. Like you, I've read no end of complaints about the new release; the last one I used was 14.04, and I moved away from that because the never-ending updates were steadily breaking functionality on my old Compaq PC..!

 

As regards Puppy, well; I've certainly never had a repeat of the increasingly common graphics freeze-ups I experienced the last few months with Ubuntu (Xubuntu, actually.....but they're all the same under the hood, of course), since moving to Puppy full-time. The old girl has run like clockwork ever since. It's entirely up to you. Rather depends on your level of tolerance, y'see; even by Linux standards, Puppy is what you might call 'quirky' (and no, that isn't a reference to Barry K's latest line of releases!).....it takes a bit of getting used to. When you do, though, it's one of the easiest systems in the world to live with.

 

http://puppylinux.com/

 

If you want to give it a try, I'd recommend Tahrpup 6.05. You can get this in either 32-bit or 64-bit, but 32-bit's probably best, since it's been out around a year longer than Tahr64; it's pretty well bug-free by now. It's about the easiest 'Pup' for a beginner to cut their teeth on.....and the Forum help is second to none; very helpful, friendly bunch of guys'n'gals.

 

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php

 

You can give Slacko a try if you prefer, it's based on Slackware, but is a little bit more awkward to set-up. This is why I've always recommended Tahrpup, for at least the last 18 months or so; it's built using Ubuntu binaries, and Phil Broughton has done an absolutely cracking job of making it one of the most stable & easy to use Pups there is, as well as providing first-class support, too. The Forum's the place for advice with any problems; we've all 'been there and done it', time & again.

 

Pups are able to run from a flash-drive; in fact, they've been designed to run that way almost from Puppy's beginning, due to the way that Puppy runs entirely in RAM, and only occasionally writes back to the flash-drive every 30 minutes or so, thus prolonging the life of the NAND flash chips inside. This assumes the ability to boot from an MBR, or 'legacy' BIOS.

 

VLC is available for all Puppies from the PPM (Puppy Package Manager). I'd actually recommend MPlayer (the back-end for SMPlayer).....but I understand it doesn't support MKV files.

 

Anyway, it's your decision, of course. Hope some of my 'flannel' perhaps helps you to arrive at a decision, one way or another!

 

 

Mike.  :wink:

Some info on installing VLC graphically and a list of supported versions of ubuntu...http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-ubuntu.html I would also suggest installing the browser and transcoding codec. It may include a codec that the player needs.

After looking some more, it didn't take long to see that FFmpeq (or FFmpeq-devel) may have something to do with this. 

 

And as has been suggested above, your VIA chipset. Note that with every new Ubuntu LTS, support for these dwindles, the same happened with Broadcom wireless cards that once worked perfectly with Ubuntu & Linux Mint, today these has to be physically installed using lots of trickery. I'd imagine it's worse with 16.04 than 14.04. And so would be support for your graphics chipset. 

 

This is exactly why the Linux Mint founder & lead developer in Clem Lefebvre stated when Mint 18 was released (as well as with earlier versions), if all is working fine, there's no need to upgrade. I don't know if Mark Shuttleworth stated the same about Ubuntu 16.04, though many stayed on 14.04 LTS over the AMD graphics issue alone. Many of these units are still on retail shelves, yet to be sold. And to think about that, even with their massive losses, AMD is still a lot larger in name than VIA today. I suspect that this could also play a huge part in where you are as of this moment.

 

BTW, there has been many whom posted here with their VIA woes. Maybe I've simply hit the silicon lottery, yet out of the dozens of computers I've kept, even if only for a few weeks & then gave to a needy person, have never hang onto a computer with a VIA graphics chipset. While there may had been some given to be that I immediately wiped, reloaded XP (in the old days) or installed Linux Mint (2009 to date) & donated, I wasn't aware of any having this chip, if so, it posed no issue. Because I won't donate a computer that I wouldn't consider fit for me to use, even if only a spare. :)

 

Though I do admit I've seen some type of conductor with the VIA branding on a few of these, however these presented no working issues, in fact, I never bothered with looking what the chipset was for. Maybe that's what's wrong with this HP dc5800 sitting over in the corner, the BIOS chipset was made by VIA. :P

 

At any rate, no matter what you have to do, keep pounding until all was working as before. And once you get things right, forget future upgrades, am surprised that there's any support for VIA chipsets left. :)

 

That's the rule of thumb with older computers, never fix what isn't broken, as long as the installed distro is still being updated.

 

Good Luck! :thumbup2:

Thanks to you all for your help, installed VLC again but it was the same, so I think I'm gonna give Puppy Linux Tahrpup 6.05 a try ... I've got nothing to lose, all my data is on a external drive so ... a little bit of patience and I'll have some fun trying something new ... again I really apreciated your comments and help ... gonna investigate about those VIA old things ... :clapping:

 

Cheers to ya all !!!!.

Cat's got the right of it, where old hardware's concerned. If it works, for Gawd's sakes leave it alone..! Don't be tempted to look for 'improvements'.....'cos where the fast pace of Linux kernel development is concerned, it truly is a case of the 'law of diminishing returns'.

 

Keep us posted, and let us know how you get on, please. The only good story is a 'success' story...and I, for one, will be interested to hear how you make out with Puppy.  :lol:

Hello Mike, I was about to chant "Victory" but it only worked for some minutes (meaning VLC) ... guess this is not my week ... can't install Puppy Linux, gets stuck when it's checking Media - Optic input or something quite like that ... I'm frustrated right now ... guess I'll keep on trying with some video player until it works ... but if there are any good news I'll let you know ... cheers !!!!
