i need some plugins to play dat and vob files on red hat 9 can somebody suggest a site.
why use plugins?
download VLC media player. u dont need codecs to play vob and dat files.
alternatively, u could install the DiVX codec
i think that should do all the thing
have all libdvdcss,nav,read etc plugins installed,and also those gstreamer0.10 plugins too.
You need to install Win32 codecs. Without this you won't be able to play mp3, dat etc no matter how mnay different types of players you install.
Approx size= 32MB.
@Blackpearl, You don't need Win32 Codecs to play .dat (VCD), MP3 files!!!!
For playing MP3 , install XMMS. For Playing VCD/DVD VLC Player or MPlayer will do.
Win32 Codecs is for playing Windows Media Format files only.
^right, i dont have w32codecs. but i can play mp3, dat files. only wma format is not playing
Download Win32 Codecs from here
Use the FireFox browser to download it. Just double-click on the package to install it.
installed w32codecs from the link. but wma files are not playing in xmms, can only be played in totem movie player.
if i add any wma file in xmms playlist, xmms player quits.
@Sariq, You should understand that XMMS is a music player (MP3, AU, WAV etc.,)
MPlayer, VLC, Totem are movie players. There is a MPlayer plugin for XMMS that lets
you play MPEG, AVI, & other media formats.
Install the MPlayer plugin for XMMS
$ sudo apt-get install xmms-xmmplayer
Ofcourse you must have installed MPlayer already, if not install it:
$ sudo apt-get install mplayer mplayer-fonts mplayer-skins mencoder
After installing the MPlayer & xmms-xmmplayer (Mplayer plugin for XMMS),
you can play MPEG/VCD/DVD/WMV media formats using XMMS!!
For more on what packages you can install see my post Unleash the Power of Ubuntu 6.06
wma is audio format not a video format
wma>>windows media audio
so i think it should be played in xmms player, in windows wma can be played in winamp 2.78 and above
Yes, there is no WMA plugin for XMMS.So XMMS won't play WMA music formats.
Use Totem to play WMA files.
There is a plugin xmms-wma available either install it using alien to convert to deb.
and for ubuntu dapper there is this deb available in plf repo http://plf.zarb.org/ seems they r shutting down
for one below is the direct link if u have a x86 pc.
below is for debian unstable try luck
installed xmms-wma form http://packages.freecontrib.org/ubuntu/plf/pool/dapper/free/
xmms doesnt play wma files, my computer hangs, while trying to open wma file through it. i have to press power button to restart, no other key/mouse works.
totem movieplayer is playing wma file fine but without equilizers.
mplayer is playing wma but withut playlists.
Another problem: in video playback, sturation and hue control doesnt work in mplayer and totem movieplayer
Install Kubuntu Desktop
Use Amarok to play the media files.
To install Kubuntu Desktop, type this command from the Terminal Window:
$ sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
Remember you need to download 159 MB!!!
Also after the installation is over, logout. In the 'Login Screen' choose the
Session as 'KDE'.
Man... why install KDE to use Amarok ? Duh, why not do a sudo apt-get install amarok itself? It works 100% fine!
for me after a reboot xmms-wma plugin works.remember to enable the plugin in the right click xmms >options menu wma plugin tick it.
also do u have enlightened sound demon(esd) server in gnome it's great for simultaneous sound needs in gnome.try setting in ` gstreamer-properties`
and in menu Desktop>preferences>sound>enable
why go for kde gnome is nice for its simplicity and its devels ethics.Listen music player is also great and willbe a competetor for Amarock.btw i donna wanna have a desktop flame war 'gain
