Xine closes trying to play .avi files


Hi,

After having successfully RPMed w32 codec and created a symbolic link as:

ln -s /usr/lib/codecs /usr/lib/win32

I am unable to play my .avi files. On double-clicking the file, Xine opens and closes abruptly. And in the terminal I get following message:

[root@workstation ~]# xine
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.5.
(c) 2000-2006 The xine Team.
xine: relocation error: /usr/lib/xine/plugins/1.1.3/xineplug_ao_out_alsa.so: sym bol snd_pcm_hw_params_set_rate_resample, version ALSA_0.9 not defined in file li basound.so.2 with link time reference

What do I do to solve this problem?

Looks like the installed version of alsa is too old, Xine wants at least version 0.9 it seems. You can try and use the OSS sound system instead.

Hey,

What is an OSS sound system? How do I go about getting that done for Xine to work?

In Xine, go to menu "Settings"->"setup", then "audio"->"audio driver to use", here you see the choice OSS.

Hi,

Going through a few posts in LQ I was able to figure out that the problem could be solved by running xine as,

xine -V Xshm -A oss

But that was cumbersome as I'd have to type that everytime I needed to open an AVI file. Searching further I found out what you posted - making the same changes in the settings of xine from GUI. My video and audio drivers were earlier set to auto and I made that to oss and Xshm respectively. Now things seem okay.

Appreciate your help though. Thanks man.
