Well, the search function does not appear to be working.

I am having trouble playing .mov files in Kaffeine. The video is OK but the sound is choppy.

If I try vlc, the sound is good but I have no video

Sigh :lol2:/>

Try xine or mplayer.

Dan, are you sure it isn't that hangover? :D/>

What versions of those media players are you using?

I think I am starting to feel better.... :D/>

Mandriva 2008.1
KDE 3.5.9
kaffeine 0.8.6
vlc 0.9.3

The wife has a new kodak camera, and videos made are stored on the camera as mov files.

I installed win32-codecs and I now have widows codecs in /usr/lib/win32. Kaffeine has been configured to look in this folder.


BTW, what is wrong with Search?

I don't have a 2008.1 system to check this anymore. However I use the same test video files on all installs to set things up and I know that both of those players worked on 2008.1 with mov files. Are you using the kaffeine-engine-xine? Are you using the vlc and vlc-plugins from the plf repo? If you don't already have it installed, could you install mencoder and post the output of
midentify file-name.mov
with file-name being one of your .mov files?

I'm not sure yet what the 'search' problem is, but I've posted a note in the mod forum about it.

Are you using the kaffeine-engine-xine?

yes

Are you using the vlc and vlc-plugins from the plf repo?

My vlc is from the plf repo.
I do not see a single package vlc-plugins. I see a vlc-plugin-a52 and a vlc-plugin-aa and a vlc-plugin-arts and a..........

I don't know if this will help or not, but this excellent guide solved some problems I was having with videos re: pulseaudio, flash, and wmv, on F11. [I am currently using both Mandriva 2009.1 KDE PWP and Fedora 11 Gnome.]

Well I installed mplayer and it plays the .mov files fine. I still would prefer to use kaffeine if possible, so if anyone out there has any suggestions I am still interested.

Man those skins for mplayer are UGLY. I don't believe I have ever seen anything so hideous.

You could be missing some of the xine plugins that kaffeine uses, can you post output from:

rpm -qa | grep -i libxine


primarily some packages called libxine1 should be installed, but there might be other libxine1 packages available. In Ubuntu they have libxine1-all-plugins, but I don't know if it exists in Mandriva or not, but you can also check by doing:

urpmf --name libxine


to find what packages can be installed. If no results from the first command, then check and install this package(s).

Your mov files are different from mine. It's the audio codec used, I have

ID_AUDIO_CODEC=pcm

and you have

ID_AUDIO_CODEC=ulaw

Could you attach a small mov file from your camera here, or somewhere I could d/l it?

I've received the file and tested it on my Kaffeine 0.8.7. The sound is terrible. I would suggest that you install (if you haven't already) ffmpeg from the plf repos and ffmpeg2theora from the official repos. Then convert the files to ogv format for your Kaffeine media player. Do
ffmpeg2theora 101_0382.mov
and try the 101_0382.ogv in your Kaffeine player. It works for me now. See man ffmpeg2theora for any adjustments you need.

I'll mark this as solved. I'm curious, what is the Kodak model #?
