Couple of Video Codec problems...

1. For some reason, not very many wmv files are playing anymore on my computer, xine OR mplayer... they used to play just fine, but now they give a scrambled or mixed stream error..

2. Some avi files won't play right in xine. If I open them up in mplayer, they play fine, but in xine it has green boxes all over the video and no sound....

you might get a newer version of mplayer and the win32 codecs.
this should help resolve some of the issues........
