guys i have downloaded the series from go-opensource.org , i failed to make it work by using mplayer..always no sound..
and i have tried some other players but i failed to make it work..
i m mplayer very newbie ..
Google, the audio for those was encoded using some random method (can't remember specifics) and you needed a patched/CVS version of ffmpeg or something to play it. All I know is that mplayer from Arch couldn't play back the audio and mplayer from Frugalware can. Not sure of the different ./configure options but there you go.
As always, Google knows all I remember looking it up and finding a ton of info ages ago.
hmm, i just tested episode 1, and it works for me in both arch and slack. i only have the standard arch ffmeg installed, and also whatever version comes with slack 10.2. google couldn't hurt to make sure you get the right codecs.
install whatever codecs come with your distro (win32-codecs?), and also check what's in the codecs/demuxer panel in the mplayer preferences. you might have to change what mplayer is set to. if that doesn't work, get the codecs from the mplayer site and follow the instructions for installing them.
