Video codecs and mplayer
This is my last hurdle and if I can get over it, I will be doing everything in Linux(Mandrake 9.1) that I always did in windows.
I am able to watch DVD's and some wmp movies with mplayer, but that's it. I would also like to watch streaming video from some of my favorite sites (quicktime movie trailers, tech tv, heavytv, etc), but I guess I just don't understand how to go about it.
I have downloaded the all-in-one package from mplayer's site, but I'm really not sure what to do with it once it is extracted. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places, but I have yet to find information that helps me with this.
So......Is anyone willing to help a newbie be completely weaned from windows?
