xine trouble

get an error with xine when loading a file

"there is no demuxer plugin available to handle /home/pharmd/filename/xvid"

"usually that means that the file format was not recognized"

any suggestions as to what I can do?

The ubuntuguide also has information on installing all kinds of 3rd party codecs, including windows ones.

you don't say what it is your trying to play?
If its a dvd make sure also you have downloaded libdvdcss2 for the encryption.
and also on mine I have noticed it works much better from the command line then trying to launch from desktop.

open terminal and type xine dvd://

also on my system and I have seen this in fedora as well, it seems linked to one dvd player in particular I get a plugin error If I use the wrong dvd player on my system.
