Question Xine Mpeg Codec Error

I've installed Xine on Fedora 11. Each time I open Xine, I get an error telling me that it can't find the Mpeg video codec.
I've installed all missing codecs (my Kaffein and MoviePlayer is working 100%), but I still receive this error.

I'll be glad about any solution. Thank you.

I'm running Xine along with MPlayer on Fedora 11.

What I usually do is to compile and install MPlayer first, then Xine. I put the MPlayer codecs into /usr/lib/codecs, and it seems as if Xine also uses them from there. Xine works fine in my Fedora 11, but then again I only use it to play DVDs (because it has DVD menu support) and I use MPlayer for everything else like playing clips, etc.

If you have a problem with a certain file that won't play, try MPlayer - as long as you've installed its most recent codec pack, into /usr/lib/codecs, there are VERY few files it cannot play.
