I've got a stupid but seriously question...
I've installed many video-player but the most doesn't work with divx files.
I've got SuSE Linux 8.2 and i just need a player that got a pretty gui and supports many files. I've tested kmplayer mplayer and xine but often there are troubles with the fileformat and codecs.
Something you could recommend me?
mplayer all the way, it is by far the best player i've ever used (nicluding windows). Xine is also very competent, but i hate it. other than that there is nothing that comes close. not because there is nothing else, just that mplayer is superb. if you are having issues with it, then just ask.
Here are some messages that appear when i want to start a .avi
MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: key_events
MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a "gdb" backtrace and disassembly. For details see DOCS/bugreports.html#crash.b.
Okay, I have MPlayer installed, but no GUI really. If I doubleclick on a file or launch a file from the console, then it plays. But I see no buttons to open additional files or to adjust anything. All I can do is scan forward and back with the arrows and pause it with the spacebar... How do you end up installing skins? Would I have to recompile mplayer? That would be a real pain since it takes forever...
