playing realplayer files on gxine


I downloaded essential files and placed them in /usr/lib/win32, reinstalled xine and gxine, and have this inmy home ./xine/config:
# path to RealPlayer codecs
# string, default:
#decoder.external.real_codecs_path:/usr/lib/win32

When I try to play realplayer files, I get this message: Error loading atrc.so.6.0

I know that file is in the config file. Is there anything else do do?

wma files play fine.

Don't know if any of this will help, but three ideas

1) Maybe it's easier to have the codecs in all the spots programs may look for them.

Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/win32 /usr/lib/codecs
2) Maybe you didn't remember to uncomment the .config file.

Try this:

Code:
# path to RealPlayer codecs
# string, default:
decoder.external.real_codecs_path:/usr/lib/win32
Instead of this:

Code:
# path to RealPlayer codecs
# string, default:
# decoder.external.real_codecs_path:/usr/lib/win32
3) Where is the file that is giving the error message? MAybe that will give you a hint what's up.

[CODE]find /usr/lib -name "atrc.*"

I think you may want to run ldconfig after #2, but I could be wrong. I'd just try each step and reboot before checking the results (also, I mean these to be done separately, and only until everything works), but I enjoy the long, lazy way.

Thanks for the tip, but no success yet. I looked at xine log and it reports not finding readable plugins in my home .xine directory. There is no plugin directory there. I reinstalled xine and gxine using slack package manager.

Or get the full codecs package http://www2.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/rel...050412.tar.bz2
That should include atrc.so
