Maybe!

Would you like to give us a clue which movie format(s) it's not playing? and what plugins have you added so far, if any?

You're Welcome.

I used mplayerhq.hu to download mplayer(livna rep.).
All I could tell about movie format is all the movies I had from block buster, I wasn't able to watch.
For some moive mplayer jut quit. And for some it shows mix color garbage thing.

Unless the linva rep comes with the win32codecs you'll probably need to download and add the Windows x86 20071007 codec pack from the same site.
