Xine stopped working November 1 on FC6


Has anyone else found that Xine suddenly stopped working yesterday (November 1, 2006)? It won't play any video files -- even ones I watched the day before. A box pops up asking "Start playback anyway?" If I click "Yes", another box pops up: "There is no demuxer plugin to handle 'file:/usr/share/xine/skins/xine-ui_logo.mpv'. Usually this means that the file format was not recognized."

I run Fedora Core 5, pretty much out-of-the-box configuration (no special performance tweaks or unusual hardware or anything). I have made no changes to the system; I run a nightly Yum update. Does anyone know why this would suddenly start happening, and what I can do about it? Thanks in advance.

Oh, and I should mention: The second box pops up if I just start Xine, without attempting to play a file. It's frustrating; I've got smut to watch!

Did you upgrade your system recently? There was an upgrade for xine-lib that broke my xine related apps (on 1 Nov). I discovered that the official FC xine-lib had overwritten my Livna xine-lib, so I simply reinstalled the xine-lib from livna and everything worked fine.

Thanks for the help!

The "xine-lib-1.1.2-17" from the Extras repository makes Xine not work on my system. I downloaded and installed the "xine-lib-1.1.2-2" from Dries, and the problem vanishes -- but Yum now wants to update to the former version.

Is there a compatibility problem that I am unaware of between the Extras and Dries repositories?

One way to avoid xine to be loaded from the extra repo again is to add en exclude section in the extra.repo file. For example, for xine, add exclude=xine* . That way, yum will bypass any xine packages from the extra repo. I had the same problem with xine. So I guess I'll fix it when I get home from work.

problem with installing package from Dries

I recently installed FC6 and am having the same problem. So I went to download the 1.2-2 version, it told me that I already had a newer version installed. So, I removed the newer version and downloaded the 1.2-2 version from Dries and this is the error I get:

Missing Dependency: libMagick.so.9 is needed by package xine-lib
Missing Dependency: libcdio.so.6 is needed by package xine-lib
Missing Dependency: libWand.so.9 is needed by package xine-lib
Missing Dependency: libcdio.so.6(CDIO_6) is needed by package xine-lib
Missing Dependency: libiso9660.so.4 is needed by package xine-lib

What do I do?

What do I do?
You need to install the packages that provide those dependencies. You can use "yum whatprovides" to find out which packages provide those missing libraries. From the output, it seems like you need to install ImageMagick, libcdio and a couple of others.

Had the same problem after upgrading to FC6.
Just installed "xine-lib-extras-nonfree-1.1.2-5" from livna without removing "xine-lib-1.1.2-17".
