You'll need XVID codecs installed. Try it:
You may also install codec bundle which will make it able to playback any video you want:

Look into my thread about codecs. It was very useful for me:
You can use that codecs source, but you'll need to compile them for RHEL. Don't use SlackBuild scripts - they are useful for Slackers only.
