Help! Cannot play video files on slitaz
  • tantriktantrik December 2009
    Hello friends,

    I installed mplayer, mplayer skins and mplayer codecs on slitaz usb. But somehow no matter which video file I try to play, whether it is .avi, .mp4, .mkv, .rm, .rmvb etc, I get this message on mplayer: "Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (v_o) device". What does the message mean? Also, then I installed xine-ui and xine-lib. I could open the video files but the videos are lagging, especially .mp4 and .avi videos with the 720p ones. Why is this happening?? Is there any way to overcome the above problems?

    Please, help me solving the video playback problems in mpalyer and in xine. Thanks in advance.

    In mplayer preferences, change video driver to X11 instead of default xv

Howdy, Stranger!
