The videos on the screenshot page have been updated for 3.4.1. Also added two new videos, showing fluff and mnttool, covering the items in the default wbar.

Having some difficulty in viewing the videos.  Screen Shots work OK, but cannot get video to display in Opera (tried Mnttool and Pendrive).  Also tried downloading and running locally via mplayer but failed with the following message:

Did they display in Opera for you before the update?

As for mplayer, they play fine in mplayer-nodeps for me (with the option -noslices, since there's a known bug in that version of mplayer).

Same here, works without '-noslices'

SamK,

Does anything change if you try following:

Code: [Select]
mplayer -vc fftheora mnttool.ogv

No updates pending no missing dependencies.

MPlayer-nodeps.tcz removed and re-installed.

To reduce the chances of data corruption being the culprit, the videos have been deleted and downloaded again.

Result: No changes in previously reported behaviour.



VLC installed - fails to display video:
Code: [Select]
VLC media player 1.1.5 The Luggage (revision exported)
[0x8f7e0d4] main libvlc error: option http-user-agent does not exist
[0x8f7e0d4] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
Blocked: call to setlocale(6, "")
Blocked: call to sigaction(17, 0xb3bf70e4, 0xb3bf7058)
Xlib:  extension "SYNC" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "SYNC" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "SYNC" missing on display ":0.0".
Illegal instruction




Switch Distros:

Stock (no updates) Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Desktop - displays video successfully using Totem.

That seems tricky in diagnosis, all I could think of would trying to exclude possible reasons one by one...  :-\

Regarding reinstalling MPlayer-nodeps.tcz:

1. Compare md5sum of your local extension with the one on repo
2. Boot with 'norestore' (and preferably with 'base') as there might be prior config files in /home (or elsewhere in backed up files). 

I would try to play some other (arbitrarily) .ogv (theora) files and see what happens.

You could use 'mplayer -v' to possibly get some more precise output, but that can give so much output that the task may start like searching for a needle in a haystack.

Not sure if the 'illegal instruction' in vlc could be related with your error output on mplayer, there is a chance that might be coincidental

By my estimation, to debug vlc would probably be more effort than to debug MPlayer-nodeps, due to the difference in complexity and dependencies (not saying you didn't do well to try another player in order to compare).

This matter is not a priority for me but may have some significance for TC as a distro.  The videos might be expected to be used as a shop window providing information to a wider user/potential user base.  If the issue is intermittently experienced, especially by those considering adopting TC, it might not be reported back, but taken as a reason to move on, upon the basis of 'does not work for me'.

With a reasonable degree of confidence, the conclusions reached so far:
01. MPlayer-nodeps not corrupt (md5sum match)
02. Downloaded videos not corrupt (play on Ubuntu 10.04)
03. Missing dependencies not culpable (none identified in AppBrowser)
04. Pending updates not culpable (none identified in AppBrowser)
05. Existing config not culpable (booting base norestore exhibits unchanged behaviour)
06. Inability of hardware to deal with file type not culpable (play on Ubuntu 10.04)

From this it may be reasonable to look towards TC+extensions or the video creation as a next stage of investigation.  It works OK for some users.  Two video players fail (MPlayer and VLC).

Investigating TC+extensions as mentioned in previous post...

Booted base, norestore
Installed Xorg-7.5.tcz, MPlayer-nodeps.tcz
mplayer mnttool.ogv
Result: video displays

For me this is unsatisfactory as I do not use Xorg.


Booted my standard boot set-up
Installed Xvesa.tcz,
mplayer mnttool.ogv
Result: video displays

For me this is better than using Xorg, however the most preferable would be Xvesa as provided by TC base.  If this is achievable, it might provide the best compatibility and fewest inconsistencies for new users.

Works here on base norestore TC 3.4.1 plus Mplayer-nodeps. I guess there's something in your setup making issues.

OK, as mentioned earlier in the topic it also works for some other users.  I'm not intending to investigate any further (but may eventually get around to trying again as it was not tested here using TC3.4.1).
