Totem movie player plays sound, no video

Postby Ifflejink on Mon May 19, 2008 10:41 pm

YEah, so my totem movie player can open video files, but it will only show a blue bar, with the same resolution and sizing as the video, but the actual images don't come up. The sound does work, though. I'm reinstalled totem, and also tried it with Gstreamer. Any help?

What type of video file are you having problems? I've only tried avi's, but they played fine in totem-xine.

Have you tried a different type of file?

Will Mplayer play the file?

If totem-xine is installed (appears the default in Elyssa), see if libxine1-ffmpeg is installed.

Just throwing out some ideas.....

I've tried multiple files types, including .mkv's, .avi's and .mp4's.

Mplayer also won't play any of the files.

libxine1-ffmpeg is installed.

But, thank you for the suggestions.

Problem solved- I just needed to turn off Compiz.
