All video players broken except mplayer


I don't know when (or how) this happened. Totem and Xine quit some time ago, but, I rarely use them anyway. However, I DO use Kaffeine, and now, it won't play either. All these apps complain about no codecs. Of course, they are there, mplayer plays everything. But, I want the others back, too. Any ideas, please?

I have the following
/usr/lib/local/win32 for the codecs
/usr/lib/local/codecs as a link to the win32 directory
and
/usr/lib/codecs as a 2nd link to the win32 directory

For the ln -s command refer the man pages.

Thank you, me too, except mine are in /usr/local/lib and so on. Here's maybe a hint as to what has gone awry. Look:
[root@raymondjones plugins]# rpm -q xine-lib
xine-lib-1.1.4-3.fc6
[root@raymondjones plugins]# rpm -q xine
xine-0.99.4-10.lvn6
and
xine-lib-extras-1.1.4-3.fc6
I have xine from livna, and xine-lib from the Fedora folks. Can that be what happened, maybe?
Mixing repos can be a nightmare, but, then, we almost have to do that, don't we?

Oh,my. NOW, I notice that Amarok, my all time mp3 player favorite, has quit, also, complaint? Cant find demuxer, or some such thing. What the heck has happened, here?

You can do a rpm remove of the livna stuff and then do a
yum install --exclude livna to fetch the one(s) you want.

I think that would be disablerepo=livna but, then, I am not going to get anything, right? Because all that is not in the Fedora distro?
