libavformat-extra-52 in LMDE? (Solved)

Postby Piilen on Tue Feb 22, 2011 12:53 pm

Hi I'm having trouble playing all video formats in LMDE 64 bits.
When using Linux Mint based on Ubuntu I'm used to installing libavformat-extra-52 and libavformat-unstripped-52 in order for vlc to be able to play everything.
But these libraries are not in Synaptic on LMDE.
Are they available in another repository?
Any help would be appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

According to Debian both packages are not available. Libavformat52 is available in Software Manager and is installed by default on my system. I am however running LMDE 32.

This thread from the vlc forum may help.

I got it fixed now. It seems that the telx codec has been removed from vlc in Debian a couple of years ago.
You only need to install the vlc-plugin-zvbi package to have it back.
