Don't know if you expect this but xubuntu uses Parole as it's media player and it's playing video perfectly and sound working :)

Further to my last post VLC still crashes when I try to open a .mkv and gives the following error when I try to open a mp4

Quote
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'file:///media/xubuntu/597656ff-7c9c-427e-b55f-c464d6475e64/home/grant/Videos/we-will.mp4'. Check the log for details.

Parole reports a gstreamer backend error with the .mp4

At least it's using amdgpu (the correct) graphics driver.

I wonder if amdgpu-pro would make any difference ? .. wanna try it (tomorrow, whilst I build the ISO) ?

I'll post instructions later .. I'm currently reading is
https://www.reddit.com/r/Ubuntu/comments/85vav4/how_i_installed_ubuntu_1804_with_ryzen_2200g/

Seems there are a LOT of stability issues with these AMD Rave Ridge setups in Linux that I'm trying to get my head around .. but it's all pointless unless we can get the system to use amdgpu first (as that's the correct driver, and the only way to get things like HDMI, etc.).

Okay I've PM'd you a link to download a new ISO from my ReadyNAS

Can you use it to create a LiveUSB, boot to it, then post me the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz

DO NOT INSTALL IT YET.

Okay it now seems as though we have amdgpu.

Up to you if you wanna reinstall with this ISO .. if you do, make SURE you boot to a Live Session and have an active internet connection before you click the "Install Peppermint" icon on the desktop.
(the reason is I haven't replaced the files in the /pool directory on the ISO yet .. so you'll need an active internet connection during the install if it needs to get GRUB)

Ok Mark thanks

I still have a few issues I'd like to mention before I commit to install

There's no improvement to video playback in Media player if anything it's worse in as much as its stuttery in small screen as well as full screen where it was only stuttery in full screen before, but that said we have sound, The good news is it all seems to work perfectly in Parole for some reason, youtube videos play perfect.

Also my desktop is way oversize now and I can't see the Menu or panel but I'm sure we'll get over that

Many thanks
