DivX used to work for me, even if not perfectly, on older releases of Ubuntu up until very recently. I used to be able to play, pause and buffer the stream (but was unable to rewind any portion of the video) with Totem codec and plugins. With installation of Maverick, Totem seems to have stopped working as well. When that ceased working, I removed all Totem files from my computer. I tried using
gecko-mediaplayer for Firefox but to no avail.
- I've tried reinstalling
- I ran
dpkg-query --list totem-mozillaand got the desired output
ii totem-mozilla 2.32.0-0ubuntu Totem Mozilla plugin.
- I also checked
about:pluginsand it is enabled there
I'm not sure if this problem is either:
- due to missing packages that need to be installed or conflicting packages that are already on the machine, or
- due to the fact that I'm running an x64 version of Maverick with flash64 and java6 (seeing as how both are still in experimental phase).
I would like to keep both flash64 and java6 because they don't seem to be causing problems with anything else other than streaming DivX.
