Errors / Not loading most of files

Post by marlonmrn » Mon Jan 07, 2019 2:15 pm

Hello, I'm a long time ums user, but since I started with deepin, I can't get it to work properly.

Using my samsung eh5300 tv, it tries to load the file but I got an error (file not supported or so, can't do it right now beacause i'm not at home)

Trying to use it with chrome (for playback), the file never loads, I can only see a thumbnail as a background of the player, the the circle never stop spinning.

I've changed my openjdk version from 11 to 8, deleted config files, tried to install all dependencies i've heard and nothing seems to fix the problem.

At the chrome playback attempt, I've got those errors at the log:

Code: Select all

23:58:41 INFO  Started playing how.i.met.your.mother.s03e01.720p.hdtv.x264-ctu.mkv on your Chrome

23:58:46 INFO  	at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:748)
23:58:51 WARN  Sending kill -14 to the Unix process: 23569
....
What are those errors?

well, I just solved the problem.
It is something related to the ffmpeg (the one that comes along with ums) not propely rendering subtitles.

Solved by deleting ffmpeg and ffmpeg64 folders under ??/ums-version/linux/ directory.
And installing ffmpeg in my computer

I also installed openjfx, but I have no idea of what it is and don't know if it is required

UMS doesn't use JavaFX, so openjfx is of no use.

Your original error seems to be related to the very buggy Chromecast implementation, but if replacing FFmpeg magically solved it I guess it's all good :?
