Wink How to play windows avi, mpg files on OSS Linux 10.0?


My sound card is a AC'97 5.1 onboard on a ASRock K7S8X mainboard.

It works fine so far, but trying to play avi or mpg (video) files that works under xp pro does not work under Linux.

The error mesages said: "no ?codecs? found in /usr/lib/win32"?!
So I copied the xp .DLLs to the win32 directory but the same error occurs.

What I did wrong?
Where can I get such "codecs"?

Pre-ThanX

Big Thanks, freakyg!

Now I'm going to try/play something ...

Linux is the port where the Redmond-aliens have found oxygen at length.
But it's too late -- it will not finally sunk in anymore!

ThanX again

Download the codec package labelled all-codecs from the section labelled as "other binary codec packages". Extract the codecs and copy them to /usr/lib/win32.

Interesting question. Jeremy is modifying the code on the site, so he may have temporrily removed it. You can start a new thread in website & suggestions so that this feature can be returned.

Giving me grief about my GCC compiler

I'm using the "eval" version, and it keeps saying how my gcc (2.96) isn't supported, how do I update my gcc compiler with the least amount of grief. And if not, will it really produce a bugged out mplayer?

Wink SuSE Linux users note

Hi there

Users of SuSE Linux users should visit
http://packman.links2linux.org/

These people have many packages precompiled for nearly any suse linux version (starting at 9.0?). You can mplayer (THE linux mediasplayer), nvu (creating web sites) and much much more!

Make your linux
