First up - hi everyone. First post here & first time using Linux!
I'm using Mandrake 9.2 on my Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600, and have everything up & running apart from Totem, which can't play any Windows Media video files. I googled and found the Xine codecs RPM "w32codec-0.52-1.i386.rpm" and installed that into /usr/lib/win32. However, I still can't play WMV files - it returns a codec error, saying "windows media 9 not handled".
I'm a complete first-timer linux n00b so I'm a bit stuck, and having only ever used Windoze, RTFM didn't really help
Any help greatly appreciated.
