You can use VLC instead (videolan.org). It includes the libdvdcss library that will allow you to play even content-scrambled dvds. Or if you'd like to do it the Ubuntu way, you can check this page. It has all the instructions you need to play DVDs.

You want to eliminate the following - Bad CD player or bad drivers.Get a buddy to down and burn the latest Ubuntu (Google it) Linux ISO boot file.Insert it into the CD and attempt to boot from it. If it boots then your hardware is fine.

I can not play movies in my totem movie player, AMR is missing


Hi..
AMR (Adaptive Multi Rate) is common audio file format for mobile devices like mobile phones, laptops, portable recorders.. etc.

in fact totem movie player can't play any amr files (files encoded in amr codec) by itself. Totem Player depends on Gstreamer libs, which haves necessary media handling components .

from your post its not clear that whether your totem can't play movie files from the very beginning or just you can not play movies recently.

your totem player may lacks Gstreamer library files or somehow your Gstreamer libs got corrupted recently.
Reinstalling Gstreamer Library file may help you.

you can find latest source version of Gstreamer on this page
(more detailed download of Gstreamer can be found on http://openports.se/multimedia/gstreamer-0.10 )

Hello: I have installed UBUNTU 10.4 into my computer and it does not recognise my SONY CD ROM (CRX1611). Is there a driver for UBUNTU I can download please ? Thanks, James.


  • Assuming that /media/cdrom0/ is the location of CD/DVD-ROM
  • To mount CD/DVD-ROM:

    sudo mount /media/cdrom0/ -o unhide
  • To unmount CD/DVD-ROM:

    sudo umount /media/cdrom0/
    I wonder if maybe the DVD is there, but it hasn't been mounted so try this above...usually Ubuntu should pick up the DVD and assign a generic driver. If it isn't there and you cannot mount it, then maybe it's faulty? You need to test it, on another PC.Hopefully this will help.

DVD will not play get error message "no URI handler implemented for DVD" I am using Ubuntu 9.10


Which application are you using? If you are trying to watch movies on your computer, the best reader I found is VLC. Try searching google and downloading this and see if you still have problems.

Well I don't know whether your objective is to study the commands or just to play DVD. If the objective is to play DVD, VLC player or Mplayer or any number of other players can be used. The install directly from software selection use package manager. If the objective is to study, I think debhelper and fakeroot is essential.

sudo apt-get install build-essential debhelper fakeroot

and try. To be honest, I use Ubuntu but I am not a great expert in Terminal. May be a better idea to play DVD is to add medibuntu repository also in the software source. Good luck

You can try three things, first, download and install the latest version of Flash
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
If that doesn't work, try reinstalling your browser, from that error code it looks as if your using a Mozilla based browser, probably Firefox, Sea Monkey or Flock?
Download the latest version of Firefox here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/firefox.html
Download the latest version of Flock here: http://flock.com/
Download the latest version of Sea Monkey here: http://www.seamonkey-project.org/
Third you can try downloading and using a different browser. there are several that I would recommend:
Safari: http://www.apple.com/safari/
Google Chrome: http://www.google.com/chrome
or Opera: http://www.opera.com/
Hope this helps!

Ubuntu Troubleshooting


One of the most common issues people have after getting their codecs installed into Ubuntu, is the sad discovery that Ubuntu won’t play Avi files from inside of your Firefox browser. Well, there is a fairly simple fix for this - lose GStreamer and switch to Xine.

You do this from Synaptic located from System, Administration in Ubuntu. In the search box for the application, just do a query for totem-xine. Once it comes up, select (double click) and then allow the uninstallation of totem-gstreamer. It’s simple!
