Installing MediaCoder in Linux
A Guide by thibeaz
You need to install wine. First things first go into your menu under Applications->Accessories->Terminal
In the terminal command use these commands 1 at a time
Code: Select all
sudo wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/feisty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
next in the command line prompt you need to use these commands
Code: Select all
sudo aptitude install wine
Sudo apt-get install wine -> Both produce the same results
Next we need to download mediacoder. Pretty sure all you know the location of MediaCoder but for those that don't it's http://mediacoder.sourceforge.net/dlfull.htm
once downloaded you need to be sure exe files are associated with wine so right click on the installer and go to the properties section of the menu.
After thats done you need to Goto the Open With tab and make sure it's associated with wine. if it is then your all set.
Now just double click on the installer and it will run just fine. It is recommend that you leave all settings as they are because this way you can be sure you will be able to find MediaCode.
After you are done you can find MeidaCoder either in Applications -> Wine -> MediaCoder (Ubuntu) or in your userfolder in the .wine directory
(you might have to select "show hidden files).
It might take some time for MediaCoder to start (on my machine approximately 20 seconds because the usual firefox popup is missing).
Download Firefox as it is a requirement for MediaCoder. It doesn't matter if you already installed it unless it is the Windows version which is installed through wine. You can download it here: http://www.getfirefox.com Be sure you choose to download the version for Windows. To install it just do the same you did in the step above.
If you still can't start MediaCoder (R6034 error), download the modified manifest file
http://www.4shared.com/file/19830555/a8 ... 80CRT.html
(you have to extract this into the MediaCoder folder).

It was tested on Ubuntu 7.04 by several users but it should also work on other linux distributions if wine can run on them.
Further additions and actualizations will be edited if existend).
