xine: error on movie load

whenever i startup xine i get the error:

there is no input plugin available to handle "filename" Maybe MRL syntax is wrong or filestream source doesnt exist

after getting this i ran xine-config. it returned

Please be patient, this script may take a while to run...
[ good ] you're using Linux, doing specific tests
[ good ] looks like you have a /proc filesystem mounted.
[ good ] You seem to have a reasonable kernel version (2.4.20-8)
[ good ] intel compatible processor, checking MTRR support
[ good ] you have MTRR support and there are some ranges set.
[ good ] found the player at /usr/bin/xine
[ good ] /usr/bin/xine is in your PATH
[ good ] found /usr/bin/xine-config in your PATH
Usage: xine-config [OPTIONS] [LIBRARIES]
[ good ] plugin directory /usr/lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0 exists.
[ good ] found unknown plugin:
[ good ] found input plugins
[ good ] found demux plugins
[ good ] found decoder plugins
[ good ] found video_out plugins
[ good ] found audio_out plugins
[ good ] /dev/cdrom points to /dev/scd0
[ hint ] /dev/dvd is /dev/dvd, not a DVD device
/dev/dvd is the default device that xine uses for playing DVDs.
You could make your life easier by creating a symlink named /dev/dvd
pointing to your DVD device (something like /dev/scd0 or /dev/hdc).
If your DVD-ROM device is /dev/hdb (slave ATAPI device on primary bus),
rm /dev/dvd
ln -s hdb /dev/dvd
typed as root will give you the symlink.
Alternatively, you can configure xine to use the real device directly,
using the setup dialog within xine, but I can't check your DMA
settings in that case...
press <enter> to continue...

[ good ] found xvinfo: X-Video Extension version 2.2
[ good ] your Xv extension supports YUV overlays (improves MPEG performance)
[ good ] your Xv extension supports packed YUV overlays
[ good ] Xv ports: YUY2 YV12 UYVY I420 YUY2 YV12 UYVY I420
reason for the DVD error is because i dont have one.

i also ran xine in the xterm, that returned where my errors are coming from. i searched the board for answers to this but i didnt really find any.

when i was searching, i ran into a thread that suggested that some plugins were missing, i listed my plugins and the ones they had suggested were missing but were there...

if there was a fix for this and i had missed it, could you please redirect me to that thread?
