cant play mov with sounds, and partition problem


I can play my mov files on kaffeine but I don't have sound. Every others filetypes have sounds so what am I suppose to understand?

My partitions from fstab are always mounted for root only I'm always obligated to do a umount in root, and mount in my user shell to access my data from my partitions.
Here's my fstab:
/dev/discs/disc0/part1 /mnt/windows vfat defaults,rw,user 0 0
/dev/discs/disc0/part2 /mnt/things vfat defaults,rw,user 0 0

Re: cant play mov with sounds, and partition problem

1. Make sure you have all codec packs installed in the Arch repo. No sound is because of a missing codec.

2. Since FAT doesn't have user permissions, the mounted partition is owned by the user who mounted the partition. Change your vfat lines to

/dev/discs/disc0/part1 /mnt/windows vfat defaults,rw,user,uid=tompouceuh,gid=users 0 0

A bus station is where a bus stops.
A train station is where a train stops.
On my desk I have a workstation.
