WMV video asks for G2M.dll in mplayer


I am trying to play a wmv video file in mplayer. I get the following error:
Code:

After some google, i found a post that seemed to talk about it.
I downloaded the codec, installed it on wine, and copied the G2M.dll in /usr/lib/codecs. The video still does not play. This is what i get:
Code:

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: init_video_codec
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.              
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.                                    
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your      
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read                
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

Any ideas how to get around this to play the WMV file?

Hi logicalfuzz,

All the G2M3 files I could find crash badly on even the most recent svn MPlayer. I would suggest you tool up to the latest svn and make a bugreport to MPlayer-users...
