Question No sound in mplayer....sometimes

I've noticed that with some Quicktime .mov files that I cannot hear the sound. Other .mov files play ok. Is there a way to get mplayer to play Quicktime sounds from the command line?

Been waiting for this question. I don't have any sound on .mov files. I'll lurk and see what comes up.

They aren't wav files...they're mov files that are Quicktime Movie Trailers that I save to my harddrive.

Tried adding the codecs library, but no sound (still plays video) and a long error readout:

I had the same problem with MOV files. Maybe you have installed the codecs in the wrong folder! In the howto from Ghaefb they use
Code:
/usr/local/lib/codecs/
BUT you'll need to install in
Code:
/usr/lib/win32/

your error: Win32 LoadLibrary failed to load: qtmlClient.dll, /usr/lib/win32/qtmlClient.dll
I use this package http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/rel...040809.tar.bz2 and it works fine with MOV Files!

From MPlayer README file (CVS Mplayer-20040816):
Quote:
_______________________________
STEP2: Installing Binary Codecs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MPlayer and libavcodec have builtin support for the most common audio and video
formats, but some formats require external codecs. Examples include Real, Indeo
and QuickTime audio formats. Support for Windows Media formats except WMV9
exists but still has some bugs, your mileage may vary. This step is not
mandatory, but recommended for getting MPlayer to play a broader range of
formats. Please note that most codecs only work on Intel x86 compatible PCs.

Unpack the codecs archives and put the contents in a directory where MPlayer
will find them. The default directory is /usr/local/lib/codecs/ (it used to be
/usr/local/lib/win32 in the past, this also works) but you can change that to
something else by using the '--with-codecsdir=DIR' option when you run
'./configure'.
You can see that default codecs directory is /usr/local/lib/codecs/

I guess some MPlayer versions(pre5) are using /usr/lib/win32 directory...

That was it!! Put the codecs library into that win32 directory and then execute mplayer trailer.mov to play your trailer. Thanx spOOky!!

I put the codecs from ghaefb.fedorausers.org( the tar called 'all-20040706') into both /usr/local/lib/codecs/ and /usr/local/lib/win32/ and mplayer still can't find the audio for quicktime. I've rebooted. I'm in Fedora Core 2, I've updated everthing. By the way, I already had Mplayer installed. How does it know to look there? Cindy

Which version of MPlayer are you using? How did you install?
I had a similar problem...
I compile MPlayer from source. I realized that I needed to copy codecs in the /usr/local/lib/codecs directory and recompile MPlayer. Only then MPlayer used the codecs in that directory.
So: first copy codecs in directory and then compile.
You don't need to reboot your computer if you make codecs changes.
Mplayer automatically check for codecs in dir.

Thank you for responding. I downloaded Mplayer the easy way - with Yum. I searched and found /usr/lib/mplayer/vidix.
I moved the codecs there, but Mplayer still said that it could not find the audio codecs. I'll install from source if I have to.
