No audio with MPlayer


Hey. I downloaded & installed earlier .90 of Mplayer. I can get audio for .mp3 files and some streaming video but I can't seem to get audio to play for .mov (lord of the rings trailer).

Can someone give me a suggestion of what to setup? It says 'Cannot find codec for audio format ()x324D4451.'

Any ideas? Thanks a bunch.

Did you try going to the mplayer web page and download all of the codecs?

upgrade to 0.92 and configure it to use quicktime codecs

the best way is to download mplayer 1.0pre1, it has built-in quicktime codecs.

Hey, thanks for the tip. I got the latest version which seems to work fine.

My question at this point is this:

If I use mplayer -file it works great. Audio, video.. everything is fine.
If I use gmplayer -file I don't get any sound.

Can someone tell me why this is? gmplayer is just a gui version of mplayer, am I right?

Well this format called 'QDesign Audio v2' is a proprietary format. However if you install quick time 4 codecs, then it should work.
Will install and try this and let you know about the results

I tried installing codecs but it tells me I am lacking permissions to put them in the appropriate folder. I guess this is something that has to be done as root?

Also, I forget where I read it, but does someone know the codec folder & can remind me?
