XPlayer No Sound .mp4 - Install Extra Multimedia Plugins

Post by Kendoori » Thu Oct 10, 2019 7:46 am

I have made some screencasts using SimpleScreenRecorder and when I go to play them back, XPlayer (my default) is prompting me to "Install extra multimedia plugins." When I click on on "Install" nothing happens, and the net result is no audio in the screencast. I can play these same videos back with SMPlayer or VLC

When I look in synaptic, the system shows both of these plugins as installed.

I am running 19.2 Cinnamon.

Have you installed mint-meta-codecs? VLC and SMplayer install their own codec libraries but many other apps don't.
