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
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
