Just a guess... try to uninstal Xine and install it again. Sometimes it works for me Sounds like some sharing files (plugins) were not installed correctly.
I use my self "avifile" to watch movies, it's a great player and relativly easy to install. Here is the link:

You will also need to have SDL installed, which you get freely here:

Install SDL first, then compile avifile, it would find SDL libraries automaticly

Still, if you are planning to watch DVD's, I don't think avifile might help you. Try to uninstall Xine from your distro and download the latest Xine and see what happens

Sorry if I'm wrong and for my crappy english
