I install the rpms: smpeg-xmms and xmmplayer, but xmms still don't play mpg videos. I have xmms release 1.2.10.
What can I do?

will the file play in anything else?
I've not tried xmms with anything other than mp3's and oggs, because I've always used xine (my personal favourite) or mplayer (the kmplayer front end to mplayer is pretty good).

http://dag.wieers.com/packages/smpeg/ ( a small mpeg player )

Worth browsing this site (if you don't already know it) there's a fair bit of stuff for Fedora.

I use gxine because kplayer don't play radio streams so fine as gxine. But I have curiosity about play mpg in xmms, because I tried knoppix and in that distro xmms play mpg with no difficulty.
