Problem with playing wmv files on Slackware 10 using xine

I have done a search here regarding this issue but none of them seem to help. Does anyone here have the same problem as i have?

I would suggest you to try XINE with MPlayer codecs, or MPlayer with it's codecs that can load and play wmv files:
I've never had a problem using them to play any kind of movie. (well one ltittle problem once but solved...)

EDIT: I read too fast your post sorry, try downloading the codecs on the page I linked above and try again. Put them in /usr/lib/win32/ where Xine is trying to locate them.
