GNU/Linux Distro with RMVB Codec
As long as I tried various GNU/Linux distros, baru kali ini I met distro which can playing video/movie berekstensi .rmvb (alias video/movie berformat RMVB). Usually this video format dipakai untuk mengkonversi AVI Video (or another video format) to reduce its size. Biasanya video berformat RMVB that I play adalah untuk menonton Naruto Shippuuden Series yang ceritanya paaaaaaanjaaaaaang bener. Klo memakai format AVI then you got about 170 MB for 22 minutes movie and after it's converted to RMVB you got only 35 MB for same duration. It's amazing although there was a little bit reduce in quality but it can be toleranted.
Actually, I have tried playing RMVB Video in another GNU/Linux distros such as PCLINUXOS GNOME Edition (it's just terdengar audio-nya aja without images), OpenSUSE 10.3 n 11 (tentu aja gak bisa cos it's included in restricted codec, lawong mpeg or mp3 aja gak iso apalagi rmvb), PCLINUXOS KDE (it can't play at all), Linux Mint 3.1 Celena (it's just images without sounds) etc. I played with various software too. I have tried MPLayer, Kaffeine, Totem Movie Player, XMMS, KMPlayer etc.
Adalah Linux Mint 5.0 Elyssa yang dapat memecahkan "rekor" distro yang bisa muterin video berformat RMVB. I tried this distro in Live CD and installed mode. it's just different in speed. When I tried Linux Mint 5.0 for the first time, aku langsung aja nyoba muter RMVB Video (naruto shippuuden series tentunya). I thought that in the newest version it should be better than I have ever tried before (Linux Mint 3.1 Celena)
It's great and this distro makes me proud using GNU/Linux. Of course, there's nothing perfect in this world. Although in one side Linux Mint 5.0 is better that Linux Mint 3.1 but in other side (I thingk) it has worse things. It can't execute directly .bin (binary file format). Padahal in Linux Mint 3.1 it's easy to do even with fake root user. I must used root access to install binary package. Another thing is about election packages. Meski gak gitu annoying but for user who has terbiasa used application di versi sebelumnya kan jadi agak kagok kalau harus makek new application included in the newest version.
