Quote from: SeZo on August 13, 2013, 06:44:12 PMDo you know how to open the Terminal in Mint?If you do then just copy and paste each of those lines (waiting for the previous to finish first) and hit enter to run.
QuoteI know the terminal is under system...ok will try that thanks.
Quote from: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on August 13, 2013, 06:44:33 PMAfter doing what SeZo suggests .. if they still won't play, can you try running an mp4 in VLC, and in VLC hit Ctrl+J(as SeZo suggests .. you need to have *some* free disk space as it no doubt buffers the file to the local drive to some extent)then report back what it says the Video and Audio Codecs are .. and I'll try find a small test file for you to download.[EDIT]The Mp4s play, it's the mkvs playing with smudgy pixels. And when I scroll back the sound often goes off and I have to re start it. I will try what you suggest above now...To do as SeZo suggests .. hit Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal.then one at a time enter the commands SeZo gave you, and hit enter to run themthe commands that start with "sudo" will prompt for your password .. just enter it and hit enter.(be aware, when entering your password nothing will be echoed to screen .. not even *******)
