Totem Movie player problem


Hi masters,

I been trying to play video files on Totem and I do get the picture but the sound is just a loud hiss. It plays mp3's with no problem. I tried changing the sound drivers but that doesn't help. I'd like to find some kind of plugin for xmms that would do the job so I wouldnt have to use Totem. Any thoughts?

thanks

i am also having the same type of problem when using MPlayer for playing VCD's.
I am not able to copy the Vcd file to any folder.

Hi guys, can you put the distros that you are using in your profiles so that replies can be more accurate. If you are using Fedora, you can download apt and synaptic from freshrpms and then install xmms-mp3 plugin. Also use the totem from there coz there have been problems with totem from Fedora.

ok thanks,

As it appears now, I use MDK 10. AMD 2500+/ ASUS A7V8X-X mobo/ VIAKT400 chipset. Any video plugin for xmms and for Drake 10 perhaps.......?
thanks

Maybe you need to get the xine packages from the plf rpm repositories. If you havn't setup urpmi sources, go to easyurpmi and get the instructions from there. Also make sure you install win32 codecs.
