make kaffeine play mpg, avi asf...


I don't know how much Kaffeine is supposed to be able to, but mine doesn't play any files at the mo.

so what can I do? I've searched for libraries and decoders but so far without success. I've a freshly installed breezy so gstreamer should still be healthy.

thanks

hey masand !
I've the same problem. I am Using Suse 10.0. Kaffine is using Xine Engine.

I however tried searching on the net and came to know that Suse 10 does have a problem with multimedia players. I couldn't find any unanymous answer/tip to solve this issue. Should i go to Guru's site or to packman site or install a mad package....or what else?
