aKtion! causes an error when i try to open an .avi file
 
I go into aKtion!, go to open, go to my mounted winxp partition and try to open an .avi file (or .mov file, and that mov file was on my linux partition), but then it gave me this error:

Can't find the xanim executable:

xanim


What can i do to fix this?

Aktion is just a video player based on xanim. In order to actually use aktion you need xanim 2.70.7.0 or higher. You can go here : http://xanim.polter.net/xa_obtain.html to download it.

Im going to try out that mplayer website, because I am having problems compiling xanim. Thanks for the replys.

MPlayer works great.. no problems compiling it, or using it, unlike xanim. Thanks for giving me the link.
