gxine vs xine


What is the difference between xine and gxine?
i installed both of them. gxine worked but xine failed.
Every time i try to play a vcd/CD, xine will shutdown my X server.
The error message was like this:


X Server shutdown
gnome-panel ,lost its connection to the display
magicdev, lost its connection to the display
nautilus, lost its connection to the display
eggcups, lost its connection to the display
pam-panel-icon, lost its connection to the display
rhn-applet: Fatal IO errro 2 (connection reset by peer) on X Server
Xinit: connection to X Server lost
X connection to 0:0 broken

Can anyone please help me?Thanks.

acid_kewpie is right. I would also recomend this player for DivX... It's very stable, fast and I've never had problems with it yet (^_^). It's called avifile:

http://avifile.sourceforge.net/

Good Luck

I like gmplayer and xine ;-)

They have different gui, different setup, different feels.

The most important things is the plugins:
avifile, divx, w32codec, mpeg, dvdread, dvdcss, dvdnav, etc
that can enhance the players.


Have fun :-)
