FLV prob w/ FFmpeg-based apps

Posted by stupid_idiot on Feb. 19 2008,10:44Some, but not all, youtube videos are producing this error when played with MPlayer and VLC from MyDSL 'testing/':
The affected MyDSL extensions which need to be updated are:
Will probably drop the clunky 'mm-base' extension in favour of just having a shared FFmpeg with a more standard name - probably 'ffmpeg.uci'.
Should take a few weeks to finish and test.
Apologies for the inconvenience in the meantime.
I strongly urge everyone to use JasonW's new 'xine.uci':
MyDSL Extension Browser -> Testing -> xine.uci
< xine.uci > [16M] (direct link)
It comes with a more current version of FFmpeg and plays all my Flash (FLV) videos flawlessly.

Yes, this extension works nicely!
Posted by Jason W on Feb. 25 2008,23:19Thanks S_I and jpeters for the kind word. I have reworked the extension with some needed tweaks that were brought to light (fixing the shell wrappers and pruning unneeded dev files). I am going over it with a fine tooth comb before I submit it again. There is a discussion about an issue with this extension in the Feb. extensions area, and I will put up a link there for what I plan to submit if all is well.
And S_I, I personally have had no problems with your mplayer extension with any of my files. I like mplayer, and look forward to your next submission.
