playing .dat movies under linux
I have on a CD a .dat movie. It is most probably in an MPEG format, as my mp3 CD Player is able to play the sound. Now, under Windows 2000 i can play the movie. Windows Media Player and DivX Player had no problems in reading it. Under Mandrake 10.1 Official it seems impossible to play it. Mplayer, Totem, Kaffeine were all unable to run the file.
I am thinking whether it is possible to somehow edit some Mplayer config file (codecs or other) so that Mplayer interpret a .dat file as being in MPEG format.
Anyone who could indicate me how to do it?
