/usr/bin/gnome-mpv does not play mkv off right click of mouse.

Sat Jan 13, 2018 3:15 am

Ok I got it to play using the terminal

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/gnome-mpv file.mkv
but whenever I right click and select gnome-mpv to open and play a MKV file nothing happens. Nothing.... why is that, and how to fix it?

EDIT
I actually didn't think just mpv would be in repo so I did not lok until just now. so that is what I am using in WMaker.

ffmpeg-devel package is not found in source repositories
the dir are there in /usr/include not sure how to figure out what version is installed to match the one mpv says is not.

Your Libav is too confusing to know what t install for devel package. None of these work to satisfy this installs needs

Code: Select all

userx@solus3 ~/Downloads/mpv $ sudo eopkg sr libav | grep \devel
gstreamer-0.10-devel               - Development files for gstreamer-0.10
gstreamer-1.0-plugins-base-devel   - Development files for gstreamer-1.0-plugins-base
libavc1394-devel

I don't understand what you are doing. The -devel packages are required only if you want to build things from source. Since mpv is in the repository, all you have to do is

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it mpv

Re: [solved] /usr/bin/gnome-mpv does not play mkv off right click of mouse.

yeah I just assumed that the basic MPV wouldn't be in there due to gnome-mpv .. so I just played .. I'll install it myself, as in my edit in my first post I commented on why I marked it solved. BUT,

Gnome has worked around the mouse issue for setting the volume using the mouse wheel, whereas mpv does seeking via mouse wheel. so that issue with gnome-mpv not working in WindowMaker off the right click still stands. .. whereas it should open the file and play it but it does not do anything.

So that part is still a issue because that is what I desire. To have the mouse wheel control the volume.
