Question Windows Media Video 9 VCM for linux (WMV3 in mplayer?)


It seems like mplayer think's that it is supposed to run with the ffmpeg codec for wmv3 though it acctually is supposed to run with the Windows Media Video 9 VCM codec, does anyone know if it is able to get this codec for linux?

Are you using the win32 codecs from MPlayers website? If not try using them. I had a problem playing some MS video files and installing the codecs from the MPlayer site solved my problem.

Note

The avifile project has similar codecs package, but it differs from ours, so if you want to use all supported codecs, then use our package (do not worry, avifile works with it without problems).

Features:

* you need this if you want to play or encode for example movies recorded with various hardware compressors, like tuner cards, digital cameras (example: DV, ATI VCR, MJPEG)
* needed if you want to play WMV9/WMA9 movies.
* Not needed for old ASF's with MP41 or MP42 video (though VoxWare audio is frequent for these files - it's done by the Win32 codec), or WMV7. Also not needed for WMA (Windows Media Audio), libavcodec has open source decoder for that.
Note the bold "BEFORE". Try to recompile Mplayer, but putting the codecs in corresponding directory first.

(would have posted the codec url, but have to make some posts first :-))

crab.cz, welcome to LQ. Giving good advice is a heck of a way to start here

crab.cz is right, you need to download the "all-codec" package from mplayer: all-20060501.tar.bz2 and extract to '/usr/local/lib/codecs' Once these are in the right place, compile and install.

regards,
...drkstr

**edit**
I think the codec package may extract to a sub-directory, you need to make sure all of the codec files are in the parent folder of '/usr/local/lib/codecs'
**edit**
