Subject description: for Fatdog64 and/or XenPup
 

Hi,

I have .ts video file that will not play in VLC player (v.2.2.6) that comes with Fatdog64 (v721). The video plays in my Windows box and I don't want to convert the video to other format.
My research lead me to believe that this is resolved in later/latest VLC player.

I have Fatdog64 and XenPup75 installed in the laptop.
Laptop Dell Latitude D630, Intel Core2Duo@2.20GHz, 2GB RAM, 60GB SSD.

I have searched and among other things, I have downloaded from Fatdog64 repo, VLC303 but have not managed to get it working yet. It's complained some missing library GLIBC 2.27, and I could not find it in repo.

I also tried PET from this thread, didn't work for XenPup...

Anyone knows how to get latest VLC player working?

Thank you.

It looks as though you took the VLC 303 from the FD800 repo, but that won't work on FD720 and FD800 is not released yet.

VLC is fussy about versions of ffmpeg and QT, so the mix and match approach is unlikely to work.

Videlan no longer build VLC 3 packages for Ubuntu Xenial and some of the libs in FD720 are older than Xenial.

If you want a working version of VLC 3, you probably need to install upupbb (Bionic) or wait for FD800 to come along.

EDIT: or Dpup Stretch.

Hi LateAdopter,

My mistake, thought I downloaded it from FD720 repo. Thanks for pointing it out.

I installed UpupBB1805, and also installed VLC 3 after reading your reply.
Installed went OK thru PPM.
But when I run VLC, I get this error (see attached).

So, how do I use VLC then?

@dcung I have been watching .ts files in Fatdog64 for years. Both the ones recorded from a TV PVR and ones created by VLC. I use FD-721 and they play here. Check out this project in the August 2018 newsletter. http://smokey01.com/newsletters/
Maybe there is something wrong with your .ts file. Where did you get it?

Hello Smokey01 it's probably the codec not the .ts that's the problem. dcung has probably got a 10bit h.265 codec or something like that.

Hello dcung.

There is a standard hack of /usr/bin/vlc to make it run as root. If you search you will find 100s of pages telling you how to do it, including a simple linux commandline.

The /usr/bin/vlc is a very small binary but upupbb is 32 bit so I don't have one already that I can give you. The binary doesn't change with VLC versions so you can reuse it in future.

Alternatively you can run vlc from the commandline preceded by run-as-spot
That will probably work for vlc.

That does it. I learnt something today Smile

The video now plays and has sound.
This sort of 'proved' that if I can have VLC3 or at least 'same codec' in my other puppies, I can play the video.

Thanks LateAdopter.
