smokey, i suppose that if something not working, you are so experimented Puppy (user), that nothing can stop you. You are not frightened neither by english, neither by Linux..
Vlc Works, what i would prefer is that people list what works, because for some developers, just install VLC means VLC works.
I mean : mp3 works, but no titles, or titles ok.
Avi works but not Mpeg..
For audio Cds, after changing preferences, VLC is efficient in Xenialpup 7.0.2.

PostPosted: Tue 05 Jul 2016, 02:15    Post subject: How to launch a DVD chapter ?  

What i would like its about reading Chapters of a DVD.
I run the DVD 1998 football cup, menu appears, but you need to launch a chapter, then how do you do ?
You cannot play your DVD :
DVD is unserviceable, broken, dirty ?
Your DVDplayer is unserviceable, lens are to be cleanned..
Mount the partition..
I Bought a set of two DVD (part one and two). DVD one is seen by Puppy, DVD 2 no.. That is the real life.. Same computer.

When i click on Sr0, VLC is launched, then something is wrong.. but what, that is the question, annoying a lot puppy developers version 7.0.2, preparing version 7.0.3, 7.0.4, 7.0.5 and so on, while passengers get furious not having a movie on board xenialpup.
So wasting holidays by trying to watch movies with last Puppy Linux, You change for an older one, with gnome mplayer, and your movies play..

I don't think I have tried xenialpup so I can't offer help regarding vlc. My distro of choice is Fatdog64 and has been for many years. Never had a problem with vlc in it. Everything I have ever tried works. I guess there may be a few things I haven't tried.

PostPosted: Tue 05 Jul 2016, 03:46    Post subject: Since Tharpup, libraries are missing in Puppies,  

smokey01, i give answer, i can be wrong :
Since Tharpup, libraries are missing in Puppies, because developers choose Ubuntu way of life, deleting ffmpeg. Slacko still get all multimedia apps working, included Puppy home made pDVD: peasy Mp3 and others..
However, Puppy Linux is still my prefered OS. Smile 32 bits...
In fact i am not married with an OS, i need to get my DVDs playing, my CDs playing, Facebook and youtube running well ... with the fast puppies, Puppy 4.3.1 was doing well. No shame to use it again.

I'm not too keen on variants that use deb packages for the same reason you described. Although there is a large choice of software it can be quite difficult to get some of it working. It's a nice idea being able to use large repositories but it's not all that reliable, in my experience anyway.

When I, or others make a package for Fatdog64 it usually works first time. On the odd occasion it doesn't, it's easy to add the missing dependency as they will be in the same repository. The same can not be said for many other distros. Slacko and Fatdog are very reliable.

The VLC for slacko 64 bit does not work. Sad

It did work in the 32 bit version.

And the screen size on Mplayer can not be made larger.

Even full screen does not result in any larger size of the video playing.

I just compiled the latest version of vlc in Fatdog64-702. I then tried it in slacko64 and it worked fine with many video formats, avi, mkv, mov, mp4 etc. I didn't try a dvd, sorry pelo but I don't have time at the moment. Vlc requires QT so load qt-4.8.5 from the repo and it should work fine.

I didn't strip the binaries or lib files.

I'm not sure if you can load a sfs when running a full install. I know earlier versions couldn't.

If this is still the case then extract the sfs to a directory and make a pet of that directory. EG: dir2pet DirName

I made the pet but had to make some guesses during it's creation.

VLC still won't show video nor does this work anymore.

Code:
vlc --play-and-exit /usr/share/audio/doorbell-1.wav
