Lirc-pluto?  Weird.  No idea what's supposed to be in there.

At this point I'd really suggest you upgrade.

Hi phenigma

I have tried the  upgrade, but 14.4 doesn't play half of my mp4 video files.  every single one of my mp4 videos play perfect on 10.4,  for some reason  the xine player after 10.4 doesn't want to  play the video files, the same thing happens on a clean install of Ubuntu Desktop 16.

I have installed every video code for play back and still it doesn't play. its not the mp4 files as dragon player plays them find, once you logged is root and run sudo dragon to allow the video & audio codes to download and install.



so for now, its 10.4

Cheers
Gov

Have you tried the vlc-player instead of xine on 1404?  It's still beta but working.

edit: fyi: mp4 is a container, not a codec.  Some players play files that are damaged.  The fact that dragon player plays the files does not automatically infer that the files are not improper or damaged.

Thanks for mentioning VLC.  I've not been happy with xine because zooming stopped working some time ago. 

VLC is working great so far.
