.OGM Files


Anyone got any suggestions to other players that can play .ogm files?
I've tried:
Kaffeine/Xine (Audio Only)
MPlayer (Doesn't work - Stream Error)
VLC (Everything BUT subtitles and it crashes when i try to edit the settings, closest to sucess yet)

I'm on SuSE 9.2 Linux.
Thanks in advance

.ogm files run just fine if you install the w32codec-all package.

I installed the w32codec-all and all the players still have the same problems. Do I need to update xine or mplayer for it to work?

That's strange. I've got several ogm files with multiple audio tracks and subtitles, and they work perfectly in Xine, and everything but subtitles in VLC. I've never had VLC crash when changing settings or otherwise. I couldn't get them to work at all in MPlayer.
Maybe there's something wrong with your copies of VLC and Xine.

All of the cited players work well on my lowly Pentium III. Make sure you have the NEWEST copy of that windows codec library.
