I believe you have to issue the following comand after you've configured it :

./configure --enable-gui

You may be able to "just" do this, but I did this after a simple ./configure.

End-up with

make install

do i need the gui to watch steaming video? i dont need the streaming video to watch avi's. i didnt install it out of choice it works just fine with out the gui. but if i need the gui to watch streaming video then i will install it. my real question is:

Heh I tried it and it looks like the URL is a pointer to a "No media player let's go get a plugin" URL. Nothig t o see here. You should probably look around for a ling to the video source/stream.
