Question Advanced Streaming Format


Hello all,

I am trying to watch a video file on a Centos Linux. The file does not open. It says "Totem could not play 'file:///root/Desktop/Linux CBT/Disk 1/video01/video01.wmv'.A Advanced Streaming Format (ASF) demuxer plugin is required to play this stream, but not installed." Does anyone know how to install this application and where I can get it? Thank you.

Hello and thank you for your feedback. I installed this successfully but I can only hear the sound but no video. Have I missed something here?

TobiSGD, the OP may need to have things spelled out more explicitly. You should point out that both the error and the solution are contained in the error message he posted, TWICE.
Code:
You need to upgrade/install the binary codecs package.
Go to http://www.mplayerhq.hu/dload.html
--- rod.

You are right, I should have pointed that out.

Thank you all for your feedback. This site http://www.mplayerhq.hu/dload.html has lots of links for downloads and I don't know which one is the right one to download. I did download this first from this site http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/ all-20110131.tar.bz2 31-Jan-2011 12:28 25M and it did not work. Then I downloaded this (Linux x86 20071007) essential-20071007.tar and un-tar it to the codecs folder and it did not work either. Can someone tell me what to download from this site http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dloa...#binary_codecs to make this work please?

Why are you running a media player or any other app on the internet as root?

Get on the internet with a user account. Running a browser or internet app as root gives it access to system space.

The all package will allow playing of any format that I can think of.

What did you do with those codecs after you unpacked them? Did you put them in the win32 folder of mplayer? Some versions require you to install the codecs fist and then compile mplayer with them in place.

No the file is a Windows Media Player with .wmv extension called video1.wmv in the hard drive Desktop folder.

Do you have your codecs there?

Mplayer will play just about everything with the right codecs.
Some people like VLC, totem whether it's a front end for Xine, or stand alone it needs codecs too.

Are you using dags for a repository?
http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/

Using your package mgr will install apps while taking care of dependencies. Codecs are usually considered a depndency of mplayer-mencoder.

Looks like mplayer is in there.
