Problem with ogg video

I'm trying to play some ogg videos showing kphotoalbum examples etc. With mplayer the picture freezes but the sound continues. With xine there is no sound at all.

Anyone have ideas what is wrong?

I don't use Slackware at the moment but for gentoo first I got ffmpeg2theora to compile and install and then compiled mplayer with theora support plus all the other codec's. When ffmpeg2theora installed, it pulled in some other stuff that I can't remember. I would just try to configure ffmpeg2theora to see what it complains about and then that may give you a hint. Is your mplayer compiled with theora support?

Yeah. I did have some more success with realplayer although it stuttered a lot. I will look at ffmpeg2theora thanks.
