I'm using mplayer, which is really wonderfull
... but I got a film with a sound file ending in '.wma', which my mplayer is not able to play (in fact it plays the file, but it sounds more like the R2D2-robot speaking, than the dialogue of a film), so I suppose that I maybe need a windows-dll file working in linux, because I heard that windows uses an encrypted sound format which is not possible to play without their library, codec or whatever the name of that thing is
I read this...
Linux doesn't really do codec packs.... you can get a set of win32 dlls to play windows formats, but other than that, that's not the way linux does it....
and my questions are: do I need the proper/windows dll file working under linux? In that case, how do I do?
If not, what can I do to play that kind of files?
