Multimedia, Kaffeine Media Player unable to read .wmv


Hi, I was wondering about Kaffeine Media Player 0.4.3b software is unable to read program.wmv. I tried to set up in setting but seems nothing helps.

Is there any other software that can read .wmv?

Thanks, David

Yes, there is Mplayer, it can read nearly any type of video file.
Since you use Mandrake, set up your urpmi, go to Manfrake Club to
learn how to do that. Then , simply download w32codecs, you might need
libdvdread and other such libs if you want to read dvds as well
Cheers

BTW, I forgot :
You can go to [URL=MandrakeUsers.org] to set up easyurpmi and to get the PLF (Penguin Liberation Front) unofficial pakages; Click on Software, at the top of the page you have : easy urmpi : follow instructions, there you are !!

Yep, of course, you can do them one by one..

Useful tip : don't bother typing them in console as they say : just select the whole line, right-click , Copy, then in your console, after typing the "su" command to get you into root, just Paste the line : this way no way of forgetting anything
Cheers
