there is no video application with a desktop install
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:38:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda says that with a desktop install I have sound and video applications but after
install, I don't see any video app :
- viewers as Xine or Mplayer or VideoLan client.
- tv as xawtv, tvtime,...
- video edit as cinerella, kino,...
It could be greet to add one !
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose desktop install
xawtv should at least be there.
xawtv should be there. Yeah the rest is obviously missing...
Ok for XawTV but the menu entry is missing.
Can a video player be added ?
xine/mplayer/vlc are not going in.
Over to redhat-menus for an xawtv entry. There's a separate bug already about
Still true with FC2 test 2 with all packages installed!
In the "Sound and video" menu, there are nearly
only sound tools (except "TVtime television viewer",
and perhaps Kaboodle, which was unable to open
any of my video files).
A distribution for the general public like Fedora Core 2
definitely needs a video player in the install CDs (or DVD).
The Totem (Xine based) video player that was shipped
with Fedora Core 1 satisfied all my needs.
So, don't forget to add one!
I think the priority of this bug should be set to "High".
Could you do it if you agree, please?
totem wasn't shipped in FC1.
Oops... You're right!
That was so much time ago that I forgot that I had to get
the totem packages from somewhere else.
Thank you for correcting me!
I still hope a patent free video player can
be included in the distribution...
Both HelixPlayer and Totem are included in FC3. HelixPlayer is
installed by default on the Desktop.
