Just a question

Does the gnome-mplayer can play .divx video files?

Re: Just a question

The documentation says it can but wow, I found a lot of threads concerning people that couldn't get it to work in the player.  You might want to take a gander around at alternative players if it doesn't work for you out of the box.

Okay have checked out the documentation and have seen that it supports .divx. gnome-mplayer sort of works on .divx files. Sound is fine but the screen just stays blank while the video is playing. What can you suggest? Perhaps, vlc will be good.

Re: Just a question

If you're on a fully updated waldorf installation, you should have vlc by default at this point. Which is not to say that I know vlc whether plays that type of file, because I don't.  glasses

Re: Just a question

I do use VLC for all my video stuff.  It's cross-platform and has a huge list of playable formats. I think you'd be happy with it, barring any out of the ordinary needs you might have.

How about for a music player?

Just found out that I already have vlc. But it was not listed on the OB menu therefore I will add it to the menu.xml under the item Multimedia. I tried playing a divx movie, the output was similar with the complication when I played the video in gnome-mplayer.

In that case, are you sure your .divx isn't damaged? Try with another .divx file.

Okay, there's an error in playing the .divx but I haven't tried playing another .divx file to test whether it works right.

Re: Just a question

I am using GMB now. And the keys for previous, play/pause, and next is completely not working. Where could I possibly configure those things to make it functional?

Re: Just a question

For what it's worth, VLC has played every file that I've thrown at it in 2+ years of use.

With regards to a music player, you might want to take a look at this thread: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=23326

Good luck! smile
