'lo everyone...it's me again ... :P
I did an online update and I don't get the error message when I try watching .AVI files. Instead, I can hear the music yet can't see the video (problem previously described by moonloader) ... now, before I download the mplayer source, I'd like to know why exactly must I download it since apparently I already have it on my computer...I read somewhere that SuSE doesn't provide the support for AVI's due to some legal issue and that this can be surpassed with proper reconfiguration of the mplayer...what I'd like to know is, if this can be done in, say, mplayer.conf or somewhere else ... if there's a special reason to download the source, I will by all means do it, I'd just like to know 1. if there's no other way to do this & 2. why exactly must I download the mplayer source if there's mplayer on my computer already...
hopefully this doesn't sound too complicated :P ... I've got the whole weekend for playing around with mplayer (I was rather busy these days due to several pressing matters at the University I had to attend to) and I'd really appreciate if you guys(and girls, of course
) would still be willing to offer your kind advice...
anyhow, many thanks in advance ppl,
cheers and greets
