MediaCoder on Linux with Wine Howto

Postby SirAuron » Thu Jul 12, 2007 11:39 pm

BlinkN, could you make this an announcement, please? I forgot that I am not a moderator of this subforum.




==================================
Installing MediaCoder in Linux
A Guide by thibeaz
==================================
---------
Step 1)
---------

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


This will install the wine sources for you
next in the command line prompt you need to use these commands

Code: Select all

sudo aptitude install wine


for those who use apt-get use

Sudo apt-get install wine -> Both produce the same results



---------
Step 2)
---------

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).


---------
Step 3)
---------

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.


--------
Step 4)
--------

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).




This guide was brought to you by thibeaz and expanded by SirAuron (using the workarounds in the thread "MediaCoder on Linux/WINE"
http://mediacoder.sourceforge.net/forum ... php?t=1072
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).

A small Suggestion

For the sudo commands add code tags to make it easier to read

Made this into a sticky instead. Announcement is used for something else. Hope you don't mind thibeaz and SirAuron.

:D

Edit: Code tags added.

Another thing
replace http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/products/firefox/ with

http://www.getfirefox.com It will automatically detect your localization and Operating system ;)

Updated Firefox link, uploaded modified manifest file (by me) and modified step 4 of guide.

Running Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) package under Linux will not work. This would require Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable under Wine. That would be a waste of time. Downloading the modified manifest file should do the trick.
