Help with real player and caffaine


Hi

In my SUSE 9.2 distro I have both caffaine and real player

I can play many mpg video files with caffaine but real player always throws error saying the File in not supported and compoment is Missing
When I click On updates it takes me to realplayer website but do not know what to download ...
Pls let me know what exaclty this error message means??

I downloaded avi files from google Media Files
the Caffene player is able to paly only audio from this avi file and not video No error Meesges Thrown ???
Why is this happening If it is not suporting that codec I think it needs to throw some error meesage atleast ?? while it palys audio ...
Please Help

Jon

RealPlayer for Linux doesn't support mpg or avi files (http://www.real.com/linux?pcode=rn&am). And if I remember right kaffeine is a front end for mplayer, so you'd need to go the mplayer site and follow the instructions there to install all the codecs you need.

Kaffeine is actually a frontend for xine. You need to install win32 codecs for your distro which you can get at http://packman.links2linux.org/ (search for win32 or w32).
