mpeg playback in kaffeine


I recently installed Ubuntu 6.06, all is well except mpeg playback in kaffeine. avi's play just fine, mpegs and avi's play just fine in movieplayer. mp3s play just fine. just no audio in kaffeine. Any ideas?

I don't know if this will fix it in Ubuntu, but what I do in Debian Etch is I download the "essentials" codec pack from mplayer's web page. You uncompress the folder, and then copy the contents to /usr/lib/win32/ using the following commands:

Code:
cd ~/essentials-251231orWhereverYouUncompressedItTo/
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/win32/
sudo cp * /usr/lib/win32/
This will create the directory /usr/lib/win32/ if it doesn't exist (if it does, then the mkdir command will fail but that's okay). Then it will copy the files over, giving them the proper root:root ownership and also making the file permissions the default 644.

After these codecs are copied over, pretty much any video will play in Kaffeine.

it installs a bunch of codec related goodies for DVD and audio playback + other stuff too

I've got a precompiled package that works fine on my site. Here is the Link.
