vlc-player problem


hi everybody,

my vlc-player (distro: fedora core 3) plays only avi-files, if i try to play other files like mpeg the player crashes and the error message in the shell says "memory exception error".....

is this a codec problem?

i installed the following codecs:

- divx4linux
- ffmpeg - 0.4.8
- win32_codecs_allwun

do i have to install other codecs? if yes, which ones?
is there a general codec-pack for linux like there is for windows (nimo or ace for example)?
i am quite confused, because there are so many codecs for linux, and i dont know which i should take.

thanx in advance for any tips.....

sounds like a memory problem to me... maybe one of your packages was compiled incorrectly, try and upgrade everything, but it might be the libraries referencing defective memory locations.

please note that "avi" is not a kind of video, it's just a container. and avi file can happily contain exactly the same video stream as an mpeg file, so would use the same codec to play the content.
