This question seems so easy to answer, but it's very hard! I'm on Xubuntu 14.04 64 bit. VLC crashes every time. Until that issue is fixed, I'm looking for an alternative. I have only 2 requirements, and the second one is the one that's tricky.
I have an HP Pavillion G6. When I used windows, the speakers were 'okay'. On Linux, the sound is significantly lower (the volume, not quality)(I have tried many Linux distros over the years). When I watch movies, I have to use VLC and go to 200% volume.
Now that VLC doesn't work anymore, I want a movie player that can...
- play popular movie formats
- increase the volume up beyond traditional movie players, so high, just like vlc.
I've tried many. Parole, Gnome player, etc..., but none have the second feature. The second feature is what I'm looking for and is what's so hard to find.
