Audio and Video Playback on Raspberry Pi

1 Comment

Hi All,

Followed the following steps and i had media playback on Raspbian “wheezy”

$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get install mplayer mplayer-gui alsa-base alsa-utils pulseaudio mpg123
$sudo reboot

Successfully managed to get some audio playback on command line
$mpg123 /pathtofile/audio.mp3

Modify the pi user to belong to the video group:
$sudo usermod -aG video pi
Logout and login for changes to take effect:

For Video Playback on Commandline
$mplayer /pathtofile/video.avi

We also now have Mplayer in Sound and Video Section in the GUI

  1. mplayer-gui does not exist. I just entered ‘sudo apt-get install mplayer-gui’ and the package cannot be found.
