    Hello everyone,

    I have a problem playing .3gp files with mplayer. Whenever I try to play .3gp files with mplayer, the video plays ok but there is no sound. It says...

    cannot find codec for audio format 0x62776173

    mplayer plays other files correctly. Is there any solution for my problem. Please help...

    Subrata Bera.

    Which distro are you using?
    I guess mplayer is missing amr codec.

    Follow this http://www.rezsoft.org/3gp/
    Steps 7 and 8 aren't needed in your case.
    But you may download that if you want to convert videos into 3gp format. I have placed the myth3gp file in /usr/bin and made it executable, so as to avail it from any directory.

    Thanks tech_your_future for your help...
    I am trying it now...

    Its seems a little difficult for me follow the steps given in http://www.rezsoft.org/3gp/ site. Is there any simple alternatives such as downloading and installing a different version of ffmpeg codec?

    Open a terminal and paste the following line
    Code:
    cvs -z9 -d:pserver:anonymous@mplayerhq.hu:/cvsroot/ffmpeg co ffmpeg
    Once this task is finished
    Code:
    cd ffmpeg
    ./configure --enable-amr_nb
    cd libavcodec
    mkdir amr_float
    cd amr_float
    
    Now at this point you should get a message about downloading certain package. Say yes. Save the download in amr_float folder if not already done so.
    Code:
    cp makefile.gcc makefile
    cd ../..
    su
    make
    cp ffmpeg /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg
    
    This should do. If you get stuck at any point just tell at what point were you stuck and what happened just before and error message, if any.
    __________
    There might be other ways but I will have to search for those. But, I have tried this one and know it works.
    Or maybe the audio may play with realplayer, I guess. But, I hate the linux version of real player and just can't come around to use it. Maybe VLC will do too.

    OK I guess that might work. Well I personally prefer compiling from source. But, if you can get this to work, go ahead, you can learn compiling some time later.

    Well rather than installing this manually just check if it exists in yum or whatever package manager you are using. Cos it will solve dependancy problems, if any.

    One thing more, download "win32codec" pack too. SInce the day I installed it and "real player 10 Gold", I haven't experienced any problems yet playing any file format.

    Download Kile codec megapack. It installs "media player classic" which plays .3gp file very well.

    Nope it should never come to Linux and never will. We don't need such proprietory products when we have such great Open Source ones. Just visit http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/projects.html. Well this is just one of the many teams working on multimedia projects.

    Thankyou very much friends for your support and help,

    I have installed Real Player and win32codec pack and now there is no problem in playing 3gp and other media files. 3gp files playing perfectly with Real Player.

    But I am trying to play 3gp files with mplayer (as a challange). And post the solution if successful. My system has now two versions of ffmpeg installed but I think mplayer is using the previous version(downlaoded from livna). I am in search for a possible solution to configure mplayer to use the second version(from kwizart) which has the amr support.

    Thanks once again.

    Subrata Bera.
