audio & video tab missing in caja file properties

Postby mouerhief on Tue Nov 06, 2012 10:45 am

When I right-click on an audio or video file in caja and select "Properties" I do not get the "audio" and "video" tab respectively, in the Properties window.
I suppose this is an issue for other users to.
I have found this topic: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=206&t=104099, but no answer has been given there.
Any idea would be welcome.
Thank you

A similar question was asked in September (viewtopic.php?t=112920) and a link to MATE forum was posted as well. As far I know other than compling and installing MATE Mplayer (for me the instructions are not clear - http://forums.mate-desktop.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=372) or waiting for some kind soul to create a 32 bit deb file your only options are:

Install Thunar and Thunar's Media Tags Plugin (http://thunar.xfce.org/plugins.html) or
Install Nautilus,which I have done.

Hopefully in MATE 1.5 this problem will be addressed.

Today, 2013-05, I've installed GNU Mint 15 RC with MATE 1.6 and Caja 1.6.1.

There is still no audio video tab.

« What a rainbows!? » :?

Can we tell me witch add-on or plug-in should add this prime feature?

Should I simply aptitude install somepackage or some thing like that?

Or they are a very big problem about this feature?

Thanks for all.

Mint 17 (Mate version) which I installed the other day, still has no audio/video tab available when right clicking a video or audio file and selecting "Properties".
This was a very useful feature. I wish it was still there, as on some previous Mint versions.

I had the same problem in Mint 17. I "fixed" it by installing Nautilus from the Software Center. The tab only shows in Nautilus and it's a pity that in it Caja doesn't. It's a pain having to keep loading up another browser when I just need to view audio/video properties.

Try adding Mediainfo with Synaptic. Then right click on a media file and select Properties/Open With then click the Add button and point to Mediainfo program. Now you can right click on a file and select Mediainfo to view the av properties
