can't play vidoes after upgrade from etch to lenny ... all stable


I just upgraded from Debian Etch to Lenny. I am currently using the 2.6.26 kernel. Before the upgrade everything was perfectly fine ... so this kinda sucks.

My browser, iceweael, is a little slower between pages. But the main problem occurs when I try to watch video. I use the 'flashplayer-mozilla' package installed using synaptic for flash, and I have the latest mplayer plugins for divx, quicktime etc ... Regardless of the type of video, the video pauses automatically, and ceases to play even though the rest of the video is still loading. And then trying to go back or 'stumble' to a new video the Iceweasel crashes and I have to 'Force quit'

On starting the browser again, there are times the whole video plays, but anymore videos and it crashes again.

Avi videos don't play through vlc or movie player anymore. I don't even get sound!!


My upgrade process was on synaptic, but there were a bunch of packages that could not be upgraded so as recommended I used
Code:
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
and my sources.list file:

I replaced all the 'stable' with 'lenny'. I got more downloads. But still no change! I would think that stable would be the same as lenny, then why am I getting more downloads?
