Cannot Find codec matching selected -vo and video format 0x33564D57
Can anyone help me? What should I do?
I enabled all the repo's already, and I installed the w32codecs, but I got this as a reply:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package w32codecs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package w32codecs has no installation candidate
I'm totally clueless. MPlayer is still showing the same error
