PS3 MKV playback (Ubuntu 10.10)

Postby corio » Tue Mar 15, 2011 4:06 pm

Just wanted to say that I finally got MKV files to consistently play. I initially installed this DEB package to see if it would solve my MKV issue and it almost did but there was still inconsistency, sound issues and 'Data Corrupted' messages. I finally decided to 'apt-get purge' the following packages:

- ffmpeg
- Mencoder
- VLC
- mplayer
- pms-linux

I rebooted my Ubuntu 10.10 box and then re-installed using the automatic installation script provided here (which installs all the packages you just purged) and I am happy to say everything works perfectly now! All the MKV files play and sound is fine. So if any of you are having similar issues try that and hopefully it will work for you as well.

Cheers!

Corio, did you have any issue with DTS pass through? Mine (and my friends) stopped working with the last deb upgrade. When I disabled it forcing everything through mencoder I could watch all my vids again. I would like to get the DTS going again though and would like your input before I blow everything away.

Thanks

Not that I am aware of, everything was pretty much default installation with the DEB package after I purged all of the codecs I had installed previously and rebooted. So as far as I know my issues were related to conflicts in my codecs most likely..

I have the same steup as Corio and followed his instructions. Everything works except DTS sound output.

Hmm not sure I understand what DTS sound output really means. All I know is ALL my MKV files are now working after doing what I listed here as my procedure. Sorry it didn't work for you, perhaps there is another codec installed that is conflicting and needs to be purged as well.

Is there a way to keep the process from starting at boot?

I wasn't aware that it was set to start automatically from boot by default, as far as I know it wasn't. Check your startup applications under preferences in Ubuntu anyway and see if it is in there, if it is remove it.

@VeeDrummer
Code: Select all
sudo chmod  -x /etc/init.d/pms-linux


or a more proper way:
Code: Select all
sudo update-rc.d -f pms-linux remove


if you want to re-enable the startup script, and depending on how you proceeded over, you can follow one of the commands:
Code: Select all
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/pms-linux

Code: Select all
sudo update-rc.d -f pms-linux defaults

I greatly appreciate it. Thanks for everything you've done with the package.
