One day I'll be famous for just bringing problems and no solution to this forum.
I'm quite a newbie in Linux and I'm facing a multimedia problem.
And simply put: it all started with a MP3
, a remix a friend of mine made and asked for my opinion.
Now, don't get me wrong, I know I should be using rhythmbox or quod libet to open the file, but as a matter of fact I went for the player that wasn't keeping any music library.
it was. And I got the following result: the screen locked up, the whole Window Manager stopped, with the exception of the mouse. The music didn't play... and the keyboard freezes as well
. I tried a couple of other files, all with the same result.
Trying the same MP3 inthe VLC
player, it plays, but it sounds choppy
. However the file plays well in my standard players
The same thing happens
when I try to play any DVD
(but here the problem seems to have a widened effect, since the VLC also freezes
like described above).
I have tried to reinstall totem, the xine plugins, VLC, installed gxine, all with the same result.
It's time I ask for help. Probably there are three different problems in this post, feel free to concentrate in only one. Give preference to the freezing, if you please.
Thanks again for any help!
