in xinehq.com they said that the program supports WMV. my friend sent me an e-mail yesterday and i tried to open it with xine but it didn't work. the error was that xine is missing a ddl file for playing wmv for windows media player 9 , and there is a missing codec also.
i tried to seach the internet for an rpm or a source to update xine in order to play wmv but i couldn't .... anyone can help ???
Comes with full codecs and can play just about any format that exists, of course including .WMV.
2. Just get Mplayer's codecs pack
Don't know if this will work, or how you might install them into Xine, and, if you can install them for Xine, whether Xine will be able to use them.
Just google for Mplayer to get the neccessary sites.
I would suggest a two pronged approach as well - I have both Xine and MPlayer. I use Xine almost exclusively to watch DVD's, while I use Mplayer to watch any single movie files - I have successfully used it to play .WMV, .MOV, .RM, .MPG but it supports a lot more.
Of course, the .WMV file you received might just simply be corrupted or invalid somehow, which might be while Xine is refusing to play it...
thanks for the information guys. i'm not close to my laptop now but i think it's easy to manage. you only have to take add the new DLL file and it should work. but i have another question for you. say that you are in a newsnetwork website and you want to watch a little movie after another. you open the first one it will work fine.you open the second one , complete another xine process ones with a second interface and a second window. it's kind of anoyying to colse xine every time to watch the second clip. is there is a way to change that behaviour ????
i'm pretty new to linux. i'm using fedora 4 . i like the free softwares included. i like that evolution can open exchange , hotmail , lycos , yahoo , and gmail mailboxes at the same time and it's nice to manage your e-mails from a single interface , single contact list , and single task list.
BUT ...... Multimedia is a very important part from using my computer. i listen to music a lot. so far i haven't found the Multimedia player which can be compared to Windows Meida PLayer. i'm sick from installing windows Anti virus , Antispyware softwares and i'm sick from burring my harddrive every week to make sure that it's clean. However , i have to admit that windows media options are more flexible
and friendly than in linux.
i guess i'm sticking with my fedora 4 laptop with evolution reading all my e-mails togather .but anybody has a nice and complete solution o play these stuff all togather ...... i'm ready to spend time on that ... does Mplayer do that ??? thanks guys.
i'm trying to locate the xine config file ... i tried the following
[root@Fedora ~]# rpm -c xine
as i read in the rpm man page , this command line should give me the location xine packege .... i know that i'm missing something here .... any help ??
