#11406 closed bug (fixed)

MediaPlayer unable to open any file: "General system error"

Reported by: v.vill Owned by: stippi
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/MediaPlayer Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86


Greetings, opening any file with MediaPlayer (either from the Tracker or the application's File menu) results in an error window: "file could not be opened -- General system error". Not sure if it's related, but stdout shows " Controller::SetTo: InitCheck failed". (Interestingly, when opening a file from the Tracker, the error message shows up before any MediaPlayer window gets drawn.)

I'm running the latest hrev28210 gcc2 hybrid on bare metal; everything was running smoothly yesterday but now it's inexplicably broken (I've run a pkgman update, but haven't seen any new MediaKit stuff in the list). I have deleted my home/config/settings but to no avail. It looks similar to #8695, but does affect *every* media file (audio or video, local or on external mountpoints).

I meant hrev48210, obviously...

Check your /system/package and make sure you don't have an ffmpeg-0.11 package there. This was added to the repos for a short time then removed again. You should have an ffmpeg-0.10.14 package instead.

The ffmpeg_x86 package is at version 0.11 but this is not a problem.

pkgman uni ffmpeg ; pkgman ins ffmpeg should fix it.

Thanks, that was indeed the cause. It's fixed now. I'll let you close this one. (I now have a different problem with the media server but I'll open a separate issue.)
