Installation videos might not work - tavvva - 03-18-2012 11:37 AM

Guys,

I got a private message from Canada, that our
installation videos do not work.
It might happen, that they do not play correctly
with some codec sets. Please, could anyone
try them and let me know?

Thanks in advance.

I've just tried one with the standard vlc player. I only had to rename them because it didn't like the () symbols.
And with not trouble at all.
I guess it would be nice if he/she told what kind of player/distro is in use.
Only the message 'the videos doesn't work' is rather vague.

Actually he gave me a better explanation Big Grin

... so I guess it's a codec/filter/player related issue.

Hehehe, Tavvva is in fact George Lucas (mystery solved) Tongue
It sounds like a codec issue indeed.
I can look with it with other distros but that wouldn't be a help either as long as I don't know what he is using.

He describes himself as a Linux newbie, therefore I expect he uses windows :|

In that case it's very wise to install VLC for windows. In my opinion it's a better player than the *standard* mediaplayer.
