Looking for help from my linux guru friends. I’m trying to play some video on ubuntu 16. All 64 bits, both ubuntu and the built app.
For testing, I just built a simple app with one window and a movieplayer. I started the app from the terminal so I could see the console output. When trying to play a movie file, I have 2 messages:
Incompatible version of libgstreamer
Cannot find libxine
followed by a nice Segmentation fault when I quit the app. I guess there are some libraries I should install, and I have used the apt-get command to install stuff, but I don’t know what the package names are.
Anyone knows what I should install?
this is what I have in Ubuntu 16.4 (32 bit)
MoviePlayer opens a new Window playing a video, does not play in the Xojo MoviePlayer Window.
Same on my side. The movie plays fine in the Movie app installed by default, but not in Xojo.
I have long given up using the MoviePlayer in Xojo - Linux.
It has never worked, not with music, not with video.
Try installing libgstreamer0.10-0
Video plays in an app window here on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit
No play/stop etc controls though… but it’s a start
No updates in this subject? Movieplayer in Linux/Raspberry not usable?
Yes, I did that, but still the same problem. I am using debian wheezy for raspberry pi.
No, I’m afraid it’s just Linux that’s not usable
Linux as a server is fine
On the desktop there’s too many distros, too many choices & too damned hard for the average person.
It’s still primarily an environment for geeks by geeks.
Even then what works well on one may / may not work on another.
But what if you did it, and it does not help?
I would have no problem if in the description would be indicated:
‘Do not use this in Linux’
Edit: I’ve decided to rescind my comments. My attitude toward select issues is best left to other outlets.
looking into whats up with Raspberry Pi is on the TO DO list
I have no idea what, if anything, has been found
I agree with @Axel Schneider

But MediaPlayer does not seem to me a nonimportant part of Xojo. Or an unused feature…
But thats not generally true
Its only on Raspberry this seems to be an issue as far as I know
Linux ? Linux ? Linux and thats the fun part
It is not a huge problem that the MoviePlayer does not work, I can play videos and audio in the HTMLViewer.
I am trying to create a video player/looper, I don’t believe that HTMLViewer and HTML5 allows me to get the end of the movie and start another one… does it?
here is an example for playing videos from a ListBox in HTMLViewer.
