comment What does “0x0030: 061c 0dd8 4745 5420 2f20 4854 5450 2f31” mean in tcpdump?
Note the "." characters in the text representation are typically placeholders for byte values that do not have a corresponding printable character associated with it.

comment Rotating a video (ubuntu 12.04)
I tried the first ffmpeg command on a few mp4 and mpg files I have here. It worked fine on both Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10. So as @evilsoup says it might be an issue with the specific video file you have.

comment Why can't I copy my DVD with dd?
Really the only way to determine if the final image is "corrupted" is to work out if it is usable. Part of that will be making sure that only the actual broken blocks are read as zeros and none of the surrounding blocks. That might mean that you need to pass a bs=512 (from memory that is the CD/DVD blocksize) parameter to dd. Really though that sort of thing is what dd_rescue is designed to do. It might take time but it tries to lose the minimum amount of data possible.

comment Does Android really use the same kernel as Linux?
I don't know why say that the kernel is not meant for desktop operating systems. It works perfectly fine on desktop devices. It also works fine on many other classes of device so maybe you meant to say it is not exclusively for desktop devices.

comment Can I pass files between commands?
@Gilles thanks - yes you are right. Was getting confused with file names beginning with a '-' where '--' marks the end of arguments.

comment Can I pass files between commands?
Another option instead of using - is to use /dev/stdin as a file or /dev/fd/0 . Both are available on linux but I do not thing that it will make kplayer work because it likely needs a seekable file and not a stream/pipe.
