CentOS 5.0 and VMWare movie player
I have the free VMWare server running under CentOS 5.0 on an AMD-64 3800+ dual core.
The only thing I still can't get to work is to view a movie under either Roxio or Nero even though there's no problem doing it on a straight-up Windows installation. Each time I try, Totem starts up and then chokes because I don't have mp3 support installed and the Nero movie player sort of pulses but just keeps the basic screen.
I was wondering if the CenOS was intercepting the signal from the DVD player since I don't have any codecs installed and causing the Nero to not play the DVD.
I've googled for how to install mp3 support but the only thing that I found was a lukewarm suggestion to install gtstreamer plugins which I did but I'm not sure that the ones in the CentOS repository are the ones needed.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
