totem : ASF demuxer plugin


Hi forum,
when I try to watch a video totem answers the following :

A Advanced Streaming Format (ASF) demuxer plugin is required to play this stream, but not installed.

Any idea what to do in this matter. rpmforge is available for yum.

Kind regards
eggerola

Both packages installed. Totem now reacts the following way :

You do not have a decoder installed to handle this file. You might need to install the necessary plugins.

What now ?
Kind regards

Well, you could tell us what kind of video you're trying to play. Otherwise we're reduced to making wild guesses.

Also, I wish programs like Totem would just say what plug-in is missing, something they never do.

The file in question is a quite normal file with .wmv ending. In fact it would be an enormous help if Totem said which plugins, ... they are in need of.

Kind regards

One thing you should know is that these are not problems or bugs. These file formats like MP3, WMA, etc are patented. Unauthorised use of these codecs are illegal in some countries, so most of the distributions do not include these codecs by default. If it's legal in your country you can download and use it legally, that's it.

You need libdvdcss2 for playing dvds
