kkempter, hope you don't mind me posting on your thread as this is what I want to be able to do also.
I've downloaded the codecs and put them in /usr/lib/win32. Do I need to tell Xine where to find them? Also, I get an error in Xine saying, "error loading library: cook.so.6.0". There is a file in /usr/lib/win32 with a similar name, but it's just cook.so. What do I need to do to get this working?
Originally posted by Nylex I did put them in /usr/lib/win32 (see post #5), but it still doesn't work.
Not sure about Xine but to install the codecs properly for Mplayer you need to extract them to /usr/lib/win32 before installing or re-compile mplayer... This way it can generate the needed /etc/mplayer/codecs.conf file so it knows the codecs are available...
mplayer -vc help
for a list of already available codecs and there working state...
