xine error: demux plugin not found


i have suse 9.1 installed on my pc.
i have tried using kaffeine & real player to play audio & video files.
for audio files it runs perfectly fine.
but when i try to run video files(*.dat), realplayer crahes & kaffiene gives the error
"xine error: demux plugin not found"
i have tried installing all the packages all over again.
what is this demux plugin??
My friends have also installed the same version & they r able to play the video files.
It also used to work on my pc earlier. so i guess there is no problem with the hardware but now after formatting my pc, when i hav reinstalled everything, it doesn't work.

thnks in advance
