Hi phenigma

I have done a fresh re-install to day my system crashed on 12.4  hardware issue.

So I have installed 14.4 and completed all the updates, added my videos again and this time the MD wont play the mp4 movie files.

So I have installed all the players available to the system, only to find that  if I update file to a linuxMCE HD-DVD the xine player starts and the film plays.

The values are holdding in the admin section, as when you stop and try to play the film again it doesn't play until you update the file to a LinuxMCE HD-DVD.

The sound is  Choppy/Lagging on some files.

any commands I can follow up with

For now I have manually   set the mp4 to EK_MediaType 27 (LinuxMCE HD-DVD) is allows play of my mp4's

MYSQL Command
UPDATE `File` SET `EK_MediaType`='27' WHERE `EK_MediaType`='5'

For the Choppy/Lagging I have installed the ffmpeg using the following command.

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

Cheers
Govo

Govo, would you mind filing a ticket for this, with this information.  Please include the following:

lspci -nn | grep VGA
cat /etc/pluto.conf
cat /etc/pluto/xine.conf
dpkg -l
uname -a
arch
lsb-release -cs

Thanks!

J.

Just an update after 120 days, running sudo apt-get install h264enc  has  completely resolved my issue of mp4 play back on Linux 14.
