Problems with libdvdcss, other codecs and ripping apps...

Post by barnac1e » Wed Jun 06, 2012 9:15 am

Hi, I wanted to voice a concern that I am a little confused about and quite frustrated on actually. And this doesn't pertain to just Mint 13, but also Ubuntu Precise as well.

But have they (Ubuntu) tightened the clamps on libdvdcss and also with ripping apps in Ubuntu Precise? Because here's what I have noticed:

After installing Mint 13, I noticed there were none of the codecs included in the DVD for libdvdcss or ffmpeg, etc so I had to track them down myself, which is quite a surprise. Furthermore, I confirmed this when immediately after installing libdvdread then activating the libdvdcss.sh script, Mint then sends me the update to libdvdcss2. I may be mistaken but libdvdcss2 used to be installed by default in previous editions, right? Secondly, I am an adamant user of the application Handbrake but both in Mint 13 and Ubuntu Precise, I have problems using Handbrake after either I install the PPA files for it, or just by installing a .deb file. Gdebi says its installed successfully but upon trying to use Handbrake, the app just kicks me out. And in Ubuntu Precise, and Mint 13 the PPA is "404-Not found" if doing apt-get update even though I see it was successfully installed and received the key previously, so I'm wondering what is going on with all of this?

Here's a prime example that happened yesterday to me: Okay, so I installed Xubuntu 11.10 and of course installed every media codec known to man, including libdvdcss, libudf0, and the rest. Then as usual I installed Handbrake, acidrip, dvdrip and ogmrip just to cover my ground for dependencies. Finally, I imported the Handbrake PPA and got Handbrake up and running. It worked like a charm as always. After transcoding a DVD succesfully, I went ahead and had Ubuntu perform the full upgrade to 12.04 Pangolin. So after the upgrade finished (and after I reinstalled my repositories and codecs manually :x ) I then tried to use Handbrake this morning. It did not work and would not trans-code the DVD. Hmmm... This is also the same thing occurring in Mint 13 so it leaves me to wonder.

Can someone shed some light on any of this? Because as of now, if I use Mint or Ubuntu, its just going to be previous releases prior to Pangolin that I will use. I'm even shocked Mint isn't including the ffmpeg, h264enc or xvidenc like they used to!

Thanks.

If you're missing codecs and the like, then you must have installed from the image that comes without them, not the normal one. There is an image for users in countries where this is an iffy legal thing, but most just install from the normal. I have an install of Mint 13 Cinnamon, full version, and it plays everything fine. As for the Handbrake issue you describe,m I had to deal with this the other night, and my searching gave me this answer. https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s ... ion/194730

Hope this helps. :)

Just used the method in the link and it worked just fine, but I had to use Synaptic rather than apt-get, which failed, I have no idea why, but it is now working. Thanks heaps for the link I've been trying for days to get Handbrake working in LM 13 :)

This method worked:
1) in terminal type the following commands:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 816950D8

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/handbrake.list

2) when the file opens, copy and paste the following lines into it, then save and close the file:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handb ... ses/ubuntu oneiric main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handb ... ses/ubuntu oneiric main

3) back in terminal, run the following command:

sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk (I had to use Synaptic on an LM 13 Cinnamon 64 bit box)

Synaptic is just a gui front-end to Synaptic, so should not make any diff which you use, they are basically the same thing.

Thanks a lot to midnight and miraceti. I appreciate you guys answering to this. I will indeed do these things. I just can't live without my Handbrake!

tried doing this, heres my output

Code: Select all

mtp@mintyFresh ~ $ sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
handbrake-gtk is already the newest version.
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 handbrake-gtk : Depends: libnotify1 (>= 0.4.5) but it is not installable
                 Depends: libnotify1-gtk2.10 but it is not installable
                 Depends: libwebkit-1.0-2 but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

have tried intallting the dependencies seperately, 1 by 1, but no luck

Have you tried running

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get -f install
as it suggests?
