From the official vlc website:
QUOTE
VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVD, Audio CD, VCD, and various streaming protocols.


When you want to download the package from the official website and select the installation software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you are being advised to use RPMforge wink.gif

John's simple tips did everything I wanted.....thanks a lot. In a moment of sheer genius, before coming here I did some Googling and followed a "guide" I stumbled across, somewhere. Turned out, it was like a really cheap GPS device - I ended up at the North Pole. I buggered my entire multi-media system. It's a test box and I couldn't even fix the damned thing - ended up reinstalling. ACK! Why I didn't come here first? Brain fart, I guess - trying to maintain my reputation as the biggest dope on this forum! But I'm a happy camper......with my smooth jazz streaming and blood pressure headed south again.

VLC is cool, but everything I do is working with MPlayer, Rythmbox, etc.

Thanks John.

This should pretty much do it.....please comment if you run into any problems/conflicts.

NOTE:  You will get an instant update for libmodplug...don't update it.  Turn off all but the SL repos, remove libmodplug which will take out gxine and xine-libs.  Then reinstall those three packages and this will correct the problem.


I got the warning too and I did nothing about it
Do i understand this correct?

1 turn off all the extra repositories

2
CODE
yum remove libmodplug

and this will also take out the other 2

3 with the turned off repositories still turned off I type yum install libmodplug gxine xine-libs

Is that all? Is it correct?

And anyone using k3b will want the "k3b-extras-freeworld*" package from PUIAS_addons repo.

My recipe for the original post:

CODE
yum install rpmforge-release
yum install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-ffmpeg


I always prefered vlc over totem, but letting the officially built-in movie player work, I also have nice thumbnails and the rest of the stock players work well too (rhythmbox).

I was with you until you said re-install some packages and I said that is beyond my experience cause you know if you do type the right specific command it will kick it out or tell I am not the sudoer which I am not,so how do I become thesuper user if that is the correct term or the privillege user? Hope it not too off topic.

I'm going to pin this as one of the first things a new linux user wants to do (and many old hacks too!) is get their multimedia apps up and running like Hulu, Music mp3's and m4a's, DVD Playback, etc.  Following this will enable all that functionality.  The package list was taken from "RHEL 6 Essentials", the remainder has been my experience with it.

First I install the following after enabling all repos (that SL script available in package manager opens up):


CODE
#yum install ffmpeg libdvdcss libdvdread libdvdnav libdvdplay lsdvd mplayer gxine



Then, install all the gstreamer plugins (excepting gstreamer-plugins-bad specifically) and other MM libraries.


CODE
#yum install gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras gstreamer-plugins-ugly libcdaudio w3m libx264 mjpegtools libsidplay libquicktime libkate automake autoconf jna gc libid3tag amrwb gstreamer-java-swt gstreamer-java gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer-vaapi eclipse-swt gnome-mplayer



Gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras will enable .m4a. The aforementioned package has a dependency conflict. Please post if you find a way to get that package installed, but I haven't missed it whatsover so I left it uninstalled. UPDATE: Tux99 has a Gstreamer-plugins-bad package that will install without issues, in his Personal Repo.

This should pretty much do it.....please comment if you run into any problems/conflicts.

NOTE:  You will get an instant update for libmodplug...don't update it.  Turn off all but the SL repos, remove libmodplug which will take out gxine and xine-libs.  Then reinstall those three packages and this will correct the problem.

To become super-user (root) in a terminal in SL type:

su

To exit the root session just press:

Ctrl-D (the 'Ctrl' and then the 'D' key while keeping the 'Ctrl' key pressed)



IMHO this thread is fairly out of date. Nowadays I would recommend installing VLC 2.0.2 from the linuxtech repo (my personal repo) instead. See this thread:

Joutlan, please don't take this criticism too hard, but I think your guide in the OP, while surely well meant, is not very good anymore and needs a complete rewrite rather than just some light editing (especially since it's a pinned guide and therefore is highly visible).

Let me explain what I mean:
on all EL6 related forums and wikis and help pages (including this forum) mixing of repos is always pointed out to be a bad thing due to the risk of conflicts (and rightly so, especially for newbies who will more likely follow this guide).
Your guide is now recommending to mix three repos when in reality one repo would be all that's needed to accieve the aim of the guide. I mean both the rpmforge repo and the linuxtech repo (and probably also the rpmfusion repo) at least can be used on their own to set up a multimedia enabled SL6 PC, there is no need to mix them. Therefore IMHO the guide should state this at this at the beginning and then offer three alternative installs guides (or just the one you personally prefer).

Also I'm not really sure why you recommend to install eclipse-swt, w3m, automake, autoconf, gc? What have those packages got to do with multimedia? Also some of the libs you explicitly mention get installed as dependencies automatically anyway.

I could offer to rewrite the guide myself for you, but I don't think that's right because I'm naturally biased, being the maintainer of one of those repos. wink.gif It would be better if someone 'neutral' writes it.

If there is anything that evolves almost at the speed of light, it is software, especially Linux software.
The dangers of mixing repos is constantly being hammered on, I agree on the need to keep doing this.

Rewriting this guide wouldn't be a bad thing.
Especially since the repo-land changed too.

@ Tux99, I think it would be a good thing if you wrote a guide for your repo since you know the packages in your repo best and could produce a guide that best suites your repo.

We might want to take a little further. Depending on which software you want or which repo(s) you enable, it might be wise to create more guides. Especially since his repo doesn't automatically match with all other repos (in other words, using his repo might be limiting the use of other repos). And additional, don't forget that there are users that want to use EPEL, other want to use RPMforge/Repoforge.

In theory, we would need three guides for this:
1) EPEL
2) RPMForge/Repoforge
3) LinuxTECH.NET

And we need to give enough warnings that chosing the right (combination of) repos prevents a lot of problems.
When you look through all the problems posted on SLF, many are related to bad choices regarding / mixing of 3rd party repos!!!

I can do that, I just didn't want it to look like my repo is the only choice.

Actually, this guide sort of is already in practice mostly about the same thing (just needs completing with nvidia and intel):

I believe a separate guide for each repo is a good idea, after all, a big part of Linux is about choice.

But, like Redman said we need this to be very clear. "we need to give enough warnings that chosing the right (combination of) repos prevents a lot of problems."

Yes someone would need to write an introduction that goes before the instructions for each repo and that explains the situation.

Ok, I can write the intro. I have unpinned this thread and created a new pinned one here.
The new topic will be a "working one" for the next weeks. We can add/modify it untill we all agree it is a good one. Then we can remove the unneeded bits and create a final topic and lock it (since it is a guide).

Greetings,

I followed the directions to install packages but have been unable to get movie player to work for DVDs.

I tried to install as many packages as I could but some had conflicts. The lsdvd and libdvdcss are installed. VLC works great. I got the VLC from rpmfusion I believe.

MP4 works with movie player, but not DVDs. Movie player player loads fine and when given a DVD asks for no additional packages. There just isn't a play button.

Please tell us which repos you have enabled, 'cause it sounds like there might be a conflict there.

Thanks for your reply redman. I'm attaching my install script. This gives all the software I installed and the order in which I installed it. When installing linuxtech I removed rpmfusion-free and epel leaving only the rpmfusion-non-free and linuxtech as suggested. After installing items from linuxtech I removed linuxtech and restored other repos. I have a 64 bit system.

I would guess mixing vlc (with all it's library dependencies) from rpmfusion with gstreamer from linuxtech could be the reason for your problems.
(movie player is based on gstreamer and gstreamer has lots of library dependencies, which in your case are mostly from rpmfusion as you installed vlc from rpmfusion first)

I do NOT recommend mixing rpmfusion packages with linuxtech packages, there is too much potential for conflict. You should use either epel+rpmfusion or epel+linuxtech.

Thanks tux99 for your reply. I only installed lsdvd, libdvdcss and mozplugger from linuxtech at the beginning. These were missing from rpmfusion. I don't believe there are any dependancies for these. But I couldn't get movie player to play DVDs. I than came across this topic and tried what was suggested in the first post "Adding all the gsreamer mostly". Perhaps I went overboard.

If I went back to just installing lsdvd, libdvdcss and mozplugger from linuxtech and using the rpmfusion as my primary repo. What would be required to get movie player to work?

If an application just doesn't load because of a missing library it is a much easier problem to solve than an application that loads but just wont work because of a missing library.

Thanks for your help

Thanks tux99 for your reply.  I only installed lsdvd, libdvdcss and mozplugger from linuxtech at the beginning. These were missing from rpmfusion. I don't believe there are any dependancies for these.

I agree those shouldn't cause any conflicts, but I have never used rpmfusion so I can't be sure.

But I couldn't get movie player to play DVDs.

So even with gstreamer from rpmfsuion you couldn't play DVDs?
That sounds like an issue with some library from rpmfusion that gstreamer depends on and that you are also using when you installed gstreamer from linuxtech.

The only thing I can suggest is don't use rpmfusion at all but use linuxtech instead. In that case DVD playback from the media player (a.k.a. totem) should work, it certainly does for me and since I haven't received any complaints about this from other people using linuxtech packages I guess it works for others too.

If you prefer to stick to rpmfusion then I can't help you as I don't have any experience with it, someone else who uses rpmfusion would need to help you.

Thanks for replying tux99.

I used the rpmfusion repo because it had all the applications I required, except keepassx.

I could try an install with linuxtech instead of rpmfusion to see any of my applications are missing and if there are missing applications how hard it would be to find and install them.

I'll let you know.

rekall, fuse-ntfs-3g, gparted, cups-pdf, wine, gnucash, keepassx should be no problem at all as they aren't audio/video related so shouldn't share any libraries with the linuxtech repo stuff.

With regards to audacity, gxine, and mplayer the only way to tell if they work fine when installed on top of linuxtech libraries is by trying it.

But i would suggest that you try out DVD playback before adding the packages from rpmfusion to make sure that works as expected with purely linuxtech packages.
