have you tried Mplayer - I find it is much better than Xine.
You didn't say what distro you are using, but I have instructions on my guide for Mplayer for red hat 7.3, 8.0, and 9 and mdk 9 also.

the link is in my sig below.

have you tried Mplayer with all of the codecs?

I have them all in rpm format on cd and the skins, 14 files in all, it's so easy once you get them..

rpm -ivh *

that will install all 14 files in about a minute and a half.
I haven't seen anything that Xine can do that Mplayer can't, but that's up to you.
To each his own.

I can't upload all of them because my webspace is limited, but you can go to the red hat 8.0 site and download them all yourself. It is really easy. I will make it super easy for you...

using KDE of course

go here: http://psyche.freshrpms.net/

and download these files to the same directory (don't put anything else in it, have these files by themselves)

aalib_1_4rc5_fr1_i386.rpm
alsa_lib_0_9_0_fr0_rc7_1_i3.rpm
divx4linux_5_01_fr1_2002041.rp
lame_3_93_1_fr1_i386.rpm
libdv_0_99_fr1_i386.rpm
libdvdcss_1_2_5_fr1_i386.rpm
libdvdread_0_9_4_fr2_i386.rpm
libdvdread_devel_0_9_4_fr2_.rpm
mplayer_0_90_fr0_5rc4_i386.rpm
mplayer_codecs_win32_1_0_2_.rpm
mplayer_codecs_win32_dmo_9_.rp
mplayer_skins_1_2_fr1_noarc.rpm
xvidcore_0_9_0_fr3_i386.rpm

then go to that directory once they have all finished saving - click on tools - open terminal - type "su" and then type your root password and press enter

then type this:

rpm -ivh *

you will see a bunch of ********'s go across the screen in your terminal - it will take about a minute and a half.

after that, you are done! it is that easy.
to open a file, just right click on it and select open with.. mplayer

enjoy!

those are optional, mplayer will work without them, but it is nice to have those, sorry I forgot to post a different link for those ones, here it is:

that one file should not have an "f" in front of it, I just didn't remove it properly, so ignore it.

anyway...

scroll down to where it says Win32 and linux codec packs and you will find those files here:

Xine errors on libXv.so.1...using Slackware 8 though

I'm running Slackware 8.1 and I'm having the same problem with Xine as k0ljat was. I installed xine-lib-1-rc3.tar.gz, and xine-ui-0.9.22.tar.gz, and when I execute xine it fails with the error message:
xine:error while loading shared libraries: libXv.so.1:cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. I've spent about 8 hours now searching for a fix to this(well not really I was working on other issues with Slackware) and it's starting to wear me down. I'm unable to find a pack where I can download this one library I need off of. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate so much.

Shouldn't it recognize that library then if I have a full install of packages that Slack 8.1 came with?
