Simple Question


What would be the best video player for Mandrake 9.1 to play DivX movies? Please provide a link to an .rpm with all necessary files to install the software. Much appreciated!

well both the mplayer package and mplayer-vidix comes with that file. are you sure the the mplayer package is saying it needs that, or is it another package requiring it?

Sorry to keep jumping topics, but what is wrong with my XINE? I used an RPM.

\\
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.9.21.
(c) 2000-2003 The xine Team.
Built with xine library 1.0.0 (1-beta13)
Found xine library version: 1.0.0 (1-beta13).
XServer Vendor: Mandrake Linux (XFree86 4.3, patch level 5mdk). Release: 40300000,
Protocol Version: 11, Revision: 0,
Available Screen(s): 1, using 0
Depth: 24.
XShmQueryVersion: 1.1.
-[ xiTK version 0.10.4 ]-
-[ xiTK will use XShm ]-

Then it just stops.
