now when ever I play any video file (e.g; mpg, mpeg, avi etc) all my video players (e.g; gxine) don't do anything they crash or only show me blue screen without any video display, tell me is there a problem with my driver of mother board or there is some other problem. my mother board is of asus and there vga card is built in.

You need to get codecs. You can download some codecs from Once you do that, you will need to know
where to place the codecs. I believe by default gxine reads codecs
from /usr/lib/win32, so I would place the codecs there.

I know that by default mplayer reads from /usr/local/lib/codecs. So
to satisfiy the two, you can put the codecs in /usr/local/lib/codecs,
and then just create a symlink from /usr/lib/win32 pointing to

Good Luck

can anyone suggest me what to do?

xgreen 03-24-2005 10:45 AM

maybe this related to yr prob....


I only see a blue (or green or black) video image most of the time.

You are either watching a very boring video (just kidding) or you are suffering from a bug in the Xorg 6.7 implementation of X11.

The workaround is to add the line

Option "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps"

in the Device section of your X server configuration (usually /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/XF86Config).

i am able to play some mpg file now but on other mpg files it says
