w32codec?


ive been trying to get an application which is supposed to let me stream XM Radio Online on my FC10 box.

Everything i've tried seems to be getting me back to the same issue. i do not have, and cannot find, the w32 codecs for mplayer.

I've found old tar archives (the "All-datestamp.tar.bz2" archives) but none of them seem to work out for me. i install them as theyre supposed to get installed, but nothing works. I still get the same issue, that it cant open mms streams.

So, is there an rpm, or a yum repos somewhere?

Thanks!

Scroll down and look at the binary codec packages.

that doesn't seem to have worked either.

The link worked, thanks for that, very much appreciated. I'm having the same issue though.


Maybe i'm going about this the wrong way.

The error i'm getting says that Klauncher doesn't recognize mms

Is there something i need to do to register mms and/or these codecs to klauncher?



Thanks!

Try this.

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-fedora.html

Even if you do not use it, it might give you what you need.

I found many links by googling "fedora 10 mplayer". You have tried them without result? Good Luck

vlc didnt do the trick. i think the issue somehow lies within klauncher...

This is the error i'm getting:

Code:
klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'mms'.
So, is there a way to register mms with klauncer?

did you by chance NOT link /usr/lib/codecs to /usr/lib/win32
some distros and programs still look for them in the very old folders
/usr/local/lib/codecs
/usr/local/lib/win32

and you DID use this package " all-20071007.tar.bz2 "
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/

Did you read the README file on the mplayer web site
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/README
-- yes it is a bit old --

Unpack the codecs archives and put the contents in a directory where MPlayer
will find them. The default directory is /usr/local/lib/codecs/ (it used to be
/usr/local/lib/win32 in the past, this also works) but you can change that to
something else by passing the '--codecsdir' option to './configure'.

I grabbed essential-20070107 from http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html

I'll give the other package a shot.

Thanks!

no-go.
i've found a number of references to a few paths which are used for codecs.
/usr/local/lib/codecs
/usr/local/lib/win32
/usr/lib/codecs
/usr/lib/win32

I've taken the all-20070107 package, and extracted it to a central location, and then symlinked all of those codec locations to that central location.

perms on said location are 644

A little more background, if this helps.
The app i'm trying to run is uniXM, an XM radio online client for Linux. It apparently uses qt, and kde libraries to run.

It's fill output, is:

Code:
uniXM(2912): couldn't create slave: "Unable to create io-slave:
klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'mms'.
This is after it launches, and tries to open a stream.

However the issue is not specific to unixm, i cannot open mms:// streams from any other media player either. I've tried vlc, and mplayer.

did you install xine and it's devel

also did you get any errors when you ran " qmake "

qmake actually produced _no_ output when it ran. It simply ran, and brought me back to bash after it finished.

i'll check on the packages. xine is installed, i'm almost certain that the dev package is as well. I'd expect that unixm wouldnt have built if they weren't.

Wahoo!
That seems to have done it. Apparently one or two of the packages you listed (and some dependancies, and a package conflict...) had to be installed/corrected. I then re-built uniXM, and now its working!

Thanks for all of the suggestions. Now i no longer need to boot windows to listen to XM.



Thanks!
