Exclamation xvid video won't work with xine or mplayer


i installed w32codec-all package and followed the guide on


but when i try to open the file with mplayer, mplayer will just open and close right away.
if i try to open the file with xine, only the audio works.

EDIT2 : here's what happens :

Opening /dev/dvb/adapter0/audio0
DVB AUDIO DEVICE: : No such file or directory

alsa: 48000 Hz/2 channels/4 bpf/65536 bytes buffer/Signed 16 bit Little Endian
AO: [alsa] 48000Hz 2ch s16le (2 bytes per sample)
Starting playback...
VDec: vo config request - 512 x 384 (preferred colorspace: Planar YV12)
VDec: using Planar YV12 as output csp (no 0)
Movie-Aspect is 1.33:1 - prescaling to correct movie aspect.
