Question xine plugin missing - not specified;which one?


i'd really like to watch this video but get an error-message which does not tell what plugin i am actually missing. same here. i am already feeling as if i had downloaded a couple of hundred plugins for xine audio/video software which took too many hours, getting pissed here...

very grateful for any help,
ungua

That video is in wmv format (Windows Media Video, Microsofts proprietary format) so you need to make use of the windows codecs. Look for information on w32codecs and you should be able to find it on this site somewhere.

You should be aware that video/audio support is crippled in SuSE preventing the use of numerous formats (including wmv), restoring full video/audio support to SuSE has definitely been covered on this site somewhere before: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ideo+w32codecs

I have never tried to get videos streaming in a browser on linux before so i dont know if restoring support for the videos is enough to solve your particular problem though

My German is only fair. I watched the restoration process on that old military looking vehicle.

That is a streaming .wmv file. You need the win32 codecs installed to watch such.
Mplayer, Xine, Totem will play those if you have the win32 codecs installed correctly.

Edit: There are also Browser plugins for Mplayer, Realplay, Xine for Mozilla and firefox so that you can watch those embedded in your browser.

i am now opening the plainfaqs-link in another window and'll have a look at that. regarding the w32-codecs so did i do my last update only two months ago, short time before i went on summerjob. i also have the then-newest version of xine and have been downloading codecs, plugins and whatever-it's-name-might-be so very often that i don't know what could be missing. are there different .wmv-compression methodes? because i have been watching a couple of .wmv-videos and -streams without trouble.
if i can see the video in browser (firefox) or kaffeine or xine doesn't matter to me, i'm glad if this os works at all...

thank you for your answers!

regards

i'm sorry, but mine doesn't. there's no error message longer, just the address - like it is supposed to be. but kaffeine stays black, also when i have the ifilm window open for ages. another result is a crash in 2/3 times opening the site with firefox.
btw, with suse 9.1 there comes realplayer. when it wasn't detected (and not working either) once, i installed the newest version. same effect - none. i installed it another time and still realplayer won't play anything straight from the web. any suggestions why?

i think, i am opening another thread on how to have windows besides. but this "suse 9.3 dvd play for dummies" was really nice, 1000 thanks!

Remove Kaffeine and Xine. Add guru rpm site to your media installation and disable CD as media installation in Yast. Now go to Install softwares and search "xine" Now install Kaffeine and xine from guru rpm site and voila.
Code:
Adding gururpm site:
Open Yast=>Change Media Installation=>ADD=>http=>
in server type "ftp.gwdg.de"
in Directory on server type: "pub/linux/misc/suser-guru/rpm/9.3"
If yours 9.1 so type 9.1 instead of 9.3
=>OK

hi slacker,

i tried it your way several times, but it won't work. i am always told i lack some other programs ("lib...something") when i try to install from your server.
regarding that realplayer-problem, i will install helix now.

Just an idea! I think you need Multimedia Pack 1 to download and install before following the
http://www.plainfaqs.org/linux/dvdplay/index.html
Update system with YOU and select Multimedia Packs to install. (In your case I'd select all of them, not just 1)

this might be a solution... btw, why does the original installation of suse 9.1 come then with no working multimedia-package? what's the point, to say it with marvins words...?? there's too much to fix after installation for linux to be really competitive to windows. i really feel stupid a lot of times, should be unnecessary...

ungua

edit: i did as recommended. meet two new friends: 1, 2. german text, but you surely get the meaning anyway. i chose the "risk ... big explosion ... many insured ... you dead" option since i don't understand what the program really is asking for anyway. i tried one time to download everything yast was asking for with some program and ended up downloading dozens of files four hours, not finding an end.

another edit: but it works! *woohoo* thank you so very much! and, btw, i didn't find a proper multimedia pack update via google and am unsure which server i shall use in yast. packman?

Multimedia pack doesn't come with SuSE because of some copyrights (legal stuff) (Ich denke so...)
It 's good that eventually we win
These dependencies you'll resolve if add sources to YaST media
YaST=>Change Installation Media=>ADD=>FTP=>mirror.mcs.anl.gov=>(directory) pub/suse/i386/9.X=>OK
Of course, replace 9.X with your version of SuSE (9.3 let's say) and install some stuff, your missing packages will pop-up again but this zeit will be prepared.
