A program that can be run in wine and can handle WMV3


The list on their site didn't include WMP so I want to know of a program that can handle it.

Mplayer kinda playes it but doesn't really.

It gets the sound and it also gets the picture sort of it breaks the image into a bunch of lines that are spread across the screen, I haven't installed the GUI yet I'm hoping that that will help, not gonna mess with that yet it says I'm missing a bunch of stuff and I've DL it and it doesn't install like most other linux programs so I'll deal with it later I just want something easy.

You need to download the essential or all win32 codecs from the mplayer website and put them in /usr/lib/win32. Alternatively you can get an rpm from xine's nightly builds page.

i really don't think your allowed to bump in this forum.

As for your problem, use a linux video player and get it working. running wine for this is just ridiculous

You can bump but only after a certain period of time (not sure how long). You need to give ample time to members living in different timezones to see your question.

Try using Xine if Mplayer isn't working fine for you. It appears that you are using Mandrake Linux, so setup urpmi sources for PLF (the links are available from easyurpmi). Once thats done do "urpmi xine" as root. This will install xine and its dependencies. If you don't want to use the xine ui, then you can also install kaffeine or totem as frontends to xine libraries.

What about trying totem? If the codecs are where they are supposed to be then totem will find them automatically. If totem works with the codecs then something is wrong with mplayer.

It said that I already had xine installed and it didn't work.

But I did the same thing for mplayer and it installed it on its own, which is funny because I was struggling with it for a few hours on my own yesterday and it installed it on its own and everything works perfectly, thax.

What exactly didn't work about xine, post any errors. I know Mplayer already works, but it's equally important to figure out why xine didn't work fine for you on your system.

What distro are you using? Looks like Mandrake, but which one? What version of mplayer? Where did you get mplayer (RPM, or tarball)? Did you compile it yourself?

I compile my own mplayer here on a Mandrake 10.0 1/2 system (Mandrake 10.0 with a lot of 10.1 upgrades, because I like to tweak), and it plays everything. I do mean "everything".

You would be far better off getting it working rather than fooling with Wine and windows apps.
