On Github there are contracts among other for video and audio information: Create a file in /usr/share/contractor Open Scratch as root gksudo scratch-text-editor (in order to create the file in /usr/share/contractor). Create a new file and copy and paste following lines. Save as ...

It's not possible to do it. Anyway, when you set your VLC volume over 100% that will also create distortion, so you will get the same effect if you set the general volume a little over 100%.

To expand on Peter's answer, many GTK+ themes (elementary included) have a dark variant which can be enabled for any GTK+ application by setting Gtk.Settings.get_default ().gtk_application_prefer_dark_theme = true;. You can find the corresponding line which the Videos app uses to toggle the dark theme here if you're interested. As to why, it emphasises the ...

VLC uses libav (also backend to ffmpeg), which can decode just about any type of digital audio or video format. I think Videos is using gstreamer, which needs individual codecs to handle each format. Most of these come in the packages gstreamer-plugins-good, gstreamer-plugins-bad, and gstreamer-plugins-ugly. Installing those three should cover most ...

Open a terminal and execute sudo apt install tlp. That's going to install TLP, a tool that helps with the overheating and powersavings on laptops. You should also update your video drivers with sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall to make sure it overheats the least possible.

the first thing i would do is clean the fan from any dust. get compressed air in a can or via a compressor. unplug power cable and battery. then spray in the fan holes from the buttom to the exit of the fan heat output. let me note that windows has a cap of 85°c linux has a cap of 95°c so linux runs hotter. therefore a laptop was not build to be placed ...

There are many suggestions online and I'm sure you've already seen many of them, but most are either impractical (modifying Chrome paramaters, only to have them reset by an update) or even, in my opinion, too risky (patching and installing the unsupported amdgpu driver).

Okay, at the risk of being considered rude, I need to ask why coderMess decided to not answer the user's question, but instead offer up advice on using another piece of software. Sure, you can use VLC, but what if you don't want to? And why bother answering a question with the advice of using different software? If we want this whole thing to work, we ...
