Mint 13 both version does not play any DVX movies online

Postby guido8 on Fri May 18, 2012 2:05 pm

Hi!

I did give a try to both version of Linux Mint 13, very nice!

But, once by a web page where it possible to watch movies, it's not possible to see any DVX/avi movie.

Bottom bar shows the volume on mute and the play bar is full but nothing movie.

Because I just try Mint 13 without installing, I am wondering if once I installed thanks the updating would be possible to play DVX movies online.

Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Did you install the version with codecs or without? try running
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras


Note: Installation only works completely and properly when done from the command-line Terminal. The entire package will not usually install completely from within a Package Manager.

Hi and thanks for your reply! :)

According to: http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php

Both are without codecs, I do love both Mate and Cinnamon, where I can find the 2 with codecs?

If I understood correctly, if I do have the one without codecs it will be OK if I run the SUDO as you suggested, am I right?

Again, thank you for your help!

Actually run this instead
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install mint-meta-codecs
and it should be fixed

install mozilla-plugin-vlc via synaptic. when you see the vlc icon in the video window of yr browser, right-click it and hit "play". it only works in firefox and maybe opera browsers.

I'm having a similar problem after upgrading to Mint 13 Mate from Mint 11 Gnome. No matter what player I use, none of my videos play although I do hear the audio track. On line videos work just fine and I have downloaded all of the codecs.
