Oh, you mean ELX. Which version are you using (BizDesktop or PowerDesktop, and what # version of that)?

What program or programs are you using to play these files? You may not have the programs correctly configured, and/or you may not have the correct codec files needed to read these filetypes.

hi there

xinetd is not a browser.....

from the man page of xinetd

xinetd performs the same function as inetd: it starts programs that
provide Internet services. Instead of having such servers started at
system initialization time, and be dormant until a connection request
arrives, xinetd is the only daemon process started and it listens on
all service ports for the services listed in its configuration file.
When a request comes in, xinetd starts the appropriate server. Because
of the way it operates, xinetd (as well as inetd) is also referred to
as a super-server.


so ucan see that xinetd is required for runnig the other services!!!!

what i would say is that get a latest xine-lib and xine-ui source package from xinehq.de

get the codecs from

http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br....52-1.i386.rpm


and everything works like a charm
