      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Real Player - Video but No Sound [solved]

Recommended Posts

I like to listen the Video/Audio clips on the BBC sports pages. For this I need Real Player so I have just installed it. When I mouse click on a link in Mozilla (1.7.8) the programme downloads the file and plays the video clip but with no sound. I have tested the system sound via the menu system>configuration>KDE>sound >sound system. When I click on the Test Sound tab I get the KDE start up sound. I can run Realplayer from a terminal window but can only get video here also. When I type about:plugins in the address bar of Mozilla I get :

If by some chance you get the notion I seem to know what I am doing it is an illusion. :jester: I am new to linux and have just followed some tips from Google.

If anyone can help me get this going I would really appreciate it.

PS I can play Audio CDś - I just downloaded and installed Kscd using RPMdrake.

I am really staring to enjoy linux since I installed Mandrake.

Probably a mixing problem. In the kde control center, sound, soundsystem, check 'automatic stop' in 1 sec. that way arts doesn't keep the soundcard occupied. (or run the browser, realplayer through arts)

Thanks for your response. I already had the sound system set as you suggested so this doesn appear to be the problem. As for your second option could you tell me how to do this please.

Open a console and type: artsdsp <browsername> (or: artsdsp realplay <name of file, link url adress etcetc >

Thanks again : I tried your suggestions with no luck. Both commands opened up mozilla then Realplayer. Here is a sample of what I did at the terminal window - is the warning a clue as to what is wrong?

 

[laurie@localhost laurie]$ artsdsp realplay http://www.mymotivator.com/_realmedia/testfile.ram

Warning: LD_PRELOAD="/lib/libdl.so.2"

[laurie@localhost laurie

 

Real Player opened in a new window and then the sound file. The bar was moving from left to right but there was no further sound. I have noticed a very slight ¨beep¨ prior to the buffereing process commencing.

 

Love your penguins! WIsh I could get them chirping here.

No it's just a warning not a clue :). Could be a codec problem. Most of the streams on that site are a few years old.

 

As a work around I tested some of the free streams with mplayer and it works fine (open a console and type: mplayer -ao arts -playlist <url (for example http://www.mymotivator.com/_realmedia/testfile.ram) >

 

Make sure you've installed all the codecs (they are at plf) and associate .ram files with the 'mplayer -ao arts -playlist' command in your browser (or just copy/past the links in a console).

I tried opening Real Player in a terminal window again and got this message:

Error while initializing the sound driver:

Is this a clue? :D

No a typo. :D It's: artsdsp realplay

 

There is a difference between a plugin and codecs. These are not the same things. You need to install the codec packages from PLF.

Thank you :cheesy:

 

Well I have installed all the codecs from PLF except I couldn´t find Mplayer codecs and urpmi wouldn´t let me install the helixplayer-helix- codecs. Here is the result of urpmq -

 

The following packages contain codecs:

helixplayer-helix-codecs

helixplayer-real-codecs

real-codecs

win32-codecs

xanim-codecs

 

I installed the bottom 4 (because I always do things back to front :D ) then -

 

urpmi helixplayer-helix-codecs

The following packages have to be removed for others to be upgraded:

helixplayer-real-codecs-1.0.1.436-1plf.i586 (due to conflicts with helixplayer-helix-codecs) (y/N)

 

So I said N

 

Still got video but no sound.

 

Do you think I could have installed Real Player twice in two different locations? :wall:

Thanks for the pm :)

 

Let's forget about realplayer for now and use mplayer. It looks like you have all the codecs installed so it should work.

 

Go to the mymotivator site and select the stream you want to listen to. When you get the page with the big play button, rightclick the button and choose 'copy links address' (or something like that).

 

Now open a console and type: mplayer -dumpstream -playlist <paste the link address here (just rightclick and choose 'paste'>

 

This command will download the stream to your /home/<your name> folder and safe it to a file called 'stream.dump'.

 

Now in a console, cd to /home/<your name> and type: mplayer stream.dump

 

You should here sound now. If not try: mplayer -ao arts stream.dump

 

If still not post the mplayer output.

 

Good luck :)

Thanks for your replies. Still no Joy - perhaps I don have all the necessary codecs installed?

It seems the codecs still aren't installed. Download from here: http://www4.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/...0050412.tar.bz2

 

And copy them (extract from the tar) to: /usr/lib/win32

 

If you don't have a /usr/lib/win32 folder create one. As you can see the errors mention the missing files by name (****.so and ****.dll). After you've copied the codecs check if these files are there. :)

 

Good luck.

I think I have succeeded in downloading the codes. I have them in the following directories:

Usr/Lib/Win32, Usr/Local/Lib/RealPlayer9/Codecs, Usr/Lib/Real, Usr/LOcal/Lib/Codecs. (just making sure) :D

However still no luck - just one question - Ihave Real Player Version 10 installed , why is the terminal message referring to Real Player 9?

Here are the latest terminal responses to the two commands you suggested:
