Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know but I don't use Helix, I use RealPlayer. And Realplayer has a few features that Helix doesn't. Unless this is only for open source players, then i would understand Realplayer not being an option. But if the poll includes closed source players then I highly recommend adding Realplayer.
Some guys voted for vlc . No problem .
this http://www.videolan.org/vlc/features.html shows that vlc has discomfort in playing real media files.
What do you say ?
in my first post in this thread on first page I have mentioned the problem i get with mplayer & even ffplay .
what do you suggest ?

It is said mplayer can play all kinds of file
But I have noticed that some youtube videos give error 'unsupported codec'
Does anyone agree ?
I request for ffplay .
ffmpg can do all transcoding while ffplay can play all kinds of file.Yet one thing is lacking that is combining video clips using ffmpeg ? (i do using mencoder)
Anyone has a solution ?
Yes, I do agree with you. Those files can be played through KMplayer. In case if you don't have the KMplayer, you can convert those error giving files to some other formats and play them through mplayer. I've tried it so many times.
Was this solution helpful for you?
