medicijnmani have problems with m4a and mp4 playback in vlc and parole media player after trying to install vlc's h265 plugin. MonkeyDust in #ubuntu told me i should ask my question here. vlc and parole can't seek in m4a/m4 (parole segfaults if i try to do that, vlc just ignores it) and the total length is about two times the real length. where should i start to fix this problem?13:04
medicijnmanuninstalling h265 made both vlc and parole even more broken: i couldn't play m4a or mp4 at all. reinstalling gave me the exact same problems as described above13:06

cfhowlettholstein, how would I hard-code subtitles into an existing video?15:13
caj62I try openshot but its a limited soft, im seeking something more powerful15:13
caj62thanks holstein and ubottu for your attention15:14
holsteincaj62: sure.. you can use different ones, or, multiple ones.. there is also lightworks http://www.lwks.com/15:14
cfhowlettcaj62, cinelerra for some super-duper editing15:14

caj62oh great15:15
caj62im looking15:15
holsteincfhowlett: AFAIK, that can be tricky.. i would try lightworks, though.. it may be a paid for addon that does what you need..15:15
cfhowlettholstein, definitely a steep learning curve and, imho, insufficient documentation15:16
caj62somebody know how to install cinelerra?15:21
cfhowlettcaj62, instructions are on the page15:22
caj62im looking15:24

caj62all around my state15:25
cfhowlettcaj62, whoa.  other teachers?  you DO plan to provide training.  right?15:25
cfhowlettcinelerra is a pretty serious piece of software, even for experienced users.  you MIGHT want to consider something a bit less demanding.  openshot would be my suggestion.15:27
caj62im working in a national program. Transform literature into audiovisual , short films15:27
caj62yes wee ar15:27
caj62we are working with openshot but i consider this a little limitated15:28
cfhowlettcaj62, ok.  what does openshot NOT provide you with?15:28
cfhowlettjust curious here.15:28
caj62cfhhowlett why are you asking? yo have experience doing this?15:29
cfhowlettcaj62, adult education & training, multimedia15:29
caj62oh very good15:30

cfhowlettcaj62, nope.  I'm currently in Beijing.  Officially teaching Business English, unofficially doing the multimedia.  (visa requirements).15:31
caj62kokujin episode 007 was made with openshot?15:34
cfhowlettcaj62, yes for the final rendering.15:35
cfhowlettlast step in the process.15:35
caj62are you on google+?15:37
cfhowlettcaj62, "China"15:37
cfhowlett:)  I'm guessing you've heard of the Great Firewall.  Certain (well, MANY) things are blocked here, google being one15:38
caj62ahh i understand can we communicate by email?15:41
cfhowlettcaj62, seattlechaz@hotmail.com         but only if you answer this:  Is there much need in Argentina for ESL teachers from abroad?  Business English teachers?15:43
caj62In Buenos Aires i think yes, i dont know in Patagonia15:45
cfhowlettcaj62, sent you a pm15:47
medicijnmani have problems with m4a and mp4 playback in both vlc and parole media player. my post at 15:04 describes the problem in more detail. is there anything i can do to fix this problem?16:32
zequencemedicijnman: Did you try installing restricted codes?17:19
zequencesudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras17:19
zequencem4a is to my understanding a closed format, not free license17:19
medicijnmanzequence: what do you mean with 'restricted codes'?17:19
zequencecodecs, I mean17:19
zequenceAnything not free will not be preinstalled because of licensing issues (except for a few details)17:20
medicijnmanzequence: the only plugin i tried to install is vlc-plugin-libde26517:20
zequenceJust install the package ubuntu-restricted-extras, and you will get everything you need17:20
medicijnmanzequence: apt-get installed libde265 and libx265-59:amd6417:20
zequenceBest do it in the terminal. Software Center has a bug17:21
zequenceOr, you can use synaptic17:21
medicijnmanzequence: okay, i think i should drop m4a then. some music files are in m4a that cause most of my playback problems.17:22
zequencemedicijnman: m4a will work, no problem, but I would not export audio to that format, unless absolutely necessary17:23
medicijnmanzequence: primarly because it is a closed codec?17:23
cfhowlettmedicijnman, I have a few m4a.  they play no problem.  but you CAN transcode them if you want17:23
zequenceBetter to use wav, aiff, flac and ogg17:23
medicijnmancfhowlett: yeah i'm considering using ffmpeg to convert them. i don't know if the quality would be the same but for most files it doesn't matter much17:24
medicijnmanzequence: yes that is also my preference17:24
cfhowlettmedicijnman, ffmpeg or avconv can do it17:24
medicijnmancfhowlett: yeah i know, i've converted lots of files with ffmpeg already without problems17:25
