No video in VLC 2.0.6 Mint 15

When I try to watch any video in VLC in Mint 15 I get audio but no video. I simply get a black screen with the VLC yellow cone. Any idea what might be up?

Thanks

Linux Mint Debian 201204 RC (MATE/Cinnamon & Xfce) released!

Not sure what you mean by "actual" software. You do get slightly older (but stable) versions of the software you mentioned. Firefox is firefox, etc.

Re: Mint KDE 13 Release ?

I just re-installed Kubuntu 12.04. It really is working nice. I have to say that I am giving up on LM both Mate and Cinnamon because trying to get them and eyecandy to work well with my computer is just not really possible. Compiz is a pain on Mate and cinnamon hates ATI drivers. KDE seems to work w...

Trying to remove gnome3-no joy!

I installed gnome 3 to test it out, now I can't remove or purge it. I am running LM13 RC with MDM installed. When I try to remove I get the following: You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: gnome-core : Depends: gdm (>= 3.0) but i...

Mint 13 (Maya) RC out

Until AMD gets their act together and develops a halfway decent driver that works with Linux I think xfce is a good way to go.

Re: GIMP 2.8

installing gimp 2.8 on LM 12 is tricky as there are major dependency issues. I upgraded to LM 13 which is based on Ubuntu 12.04 and gimp 2.8 installs in that no problem.

Re: Mint 13 (Maya) RC out

I found cinnamon too buggy with ati drivers so installed the MATE RC instead. I find it extremely stable. Also find xfce 4.10 very stable. Running with xfce, cairo dock and clock. No problems! Good job Clem and team! Kudos! http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/9727/screenshot0518201212341.jpg And yes, t...

Re: Linux Mint Debian 201204 released!

The latest Firefox why is it so late in the LMDE version? After release of the new Firefox had to wait a couple of weeks that can be updated. firefox is not updated as quickly for debian. Best bet is to install iceweasel (firefox clone for debian) which is updated more often. It looks and works jus...

Re: Mint 13 (Maya) RC out

I'm finding the RC stable. I wish I could get cinnamon to work better with the ATI fglrx drivers though. It works well with the gallium drivers, but if I use the gallium drivers my laptop runs very hot and I have no control over brightness. If I use the fglrx drivers, cinnamon does not play well. I ...

Ok. So I am liking cinnamon but if I use the fglrx drivers then cinnamon doesn't work well-lots of flashies, poor video playback, and other little things. If I use the open source gallium drivers I don't have control over dimming the screen and my fans run all the time but cinnamon and video works b...

I second Altair! Learn how to create a sentence, spell correctly, use correct grammar, on such a long post. It will be much easier to understand and would be taken seriously. I'm not trying to start a flame war, just want to understand your point. :)

FLAC and MP3 questions

Linux is friendly to all sound and video codecs. Linux mint comes with the ability to play just about everything out of the box.

As far as downloading copy protected files most providers (even iTunes) no longer apply copy protection as long as you pay for it.
