I have just the following currently in Videos:
-rw-r--r-- 1 bart bart 92659427 Jul 29 2017 MOV_0195.AVI
-rw-r--r-- 1 bart bart 300423424 Jul 29 2017 MOV_0196.AVI
-rw-r--r-- 1 bart bart 1573484 Jul 29 2017 Sample.mp4
-rw-rw-r-- 1 bart bart 10454044 Dec 17 2017 TextInMotion-Sample-576p.mp4
-rw-rw-r-- 1 bart bart 13988946 Dec 17 2017 TextInMotion-Sample-720p.mp4

VLC opens all five, showing the initial scene. Only one, Sample.mp4, provides motion and sound, although the time marker at the bottom of the screen moves across for the other four.

Applications > Sound and Video contains mpv Media Player. Trying to open that will occasionally bring up an "Ubuntu" informing me that it has unexpectedly closed (without actually opening), but usually nothing happens. The same menu section also has SMPlayer. SMPlayer handles all five videos, although the AVI's play at not much better than half speed.

Thanks Christian! The problem was indeed in the input codec. The 'auto' setting seems to choose VPAU which does not work. Selecting VA-API solved the issue.

VLC seems to work very smoothly and can keep sound and video well in sync! Thank you for your efforts :-).

BTW, can this version of VLC also used with 'Mate Remix', or do you need a customized version for it...?

I haven’t tested it on the MATE PowerPC Remix yet. You can test it if you like. Please try to install the packages with sudo dpkg -i * on the MATE PowerPC Remix.

Maybe not a good idea. This comes up repeatedly, along with some other scary stuff:
Code: Select all
dpkg: warning: downgrading libvlc5:powerpc from 2.2.4-14ubuntu2 to 2.2.2-5ubuntu0.16.04.5

Maybe the other stuff isn't really that scary. Mostly this sort of thing:
Code: Select all
Unpacking vlc-data (2.2.2-5ubuntu0.16.04.5) over (2.2.4-14ubuntu2) ...
Replaced by files in installed package vlc-l10n (2.2.4-14ubuntu2) ...
Replaced by files in installed package vlc-plugin-skins2:powerpc (2.2.4-14ubuntu2) ...

I'm hoping that means the installer refused to do bad things and I haven't messed up my REMIX.

Hi Kilaueabart,

You're right. There are some problems with the installation of the VLC without AltiVec on the MATE PowerPC Remix. The reason is, that this VLC was created only for ubuntu MATE 16.04. I installed this VLC on the MATE PowerPC Remix today. It starts and I can listen to web radios. Videos don't work with this VLC on the MATE PowerPC Remix.

Hi All,

I created a new VLC package for the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 0.9 today.

Download: vlc_2.2.2-without_altivec_mate_powerpc_remix.tar.gz

Installation instructions:

Code: Select all
sudo dpkg --remove vlc-plugin-skins2
sudo dpkg --remove vlc-l10n
sudo dpkg --remove vlc-bin
sudo dpkg --remove libvlc-bin
sudo dpkg --remove vlc-plugin-qt


Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i *


The MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 0.9 with the VLC media player on an AmigaOne X5000:

Please test it.

Thanks,
Christian
