    xine; can't play wmv files.


    for some reason I'm still having problems playing window's media files in xine, even after I installed the Win32 codecs. It's still saying I don't have "wmvdmod.dll" even though I have about 3 copies in 3 different xine directories.

    I'm wonering if I have the files in the wrong place? Am I missing something? Something needs to be tweaked? I'm clueless.

    I tired posting a screenshot, but I can't get the image size down enough and still be able to read it.

    okay good news, bad news

    For some reason the video plays now, but it's very choppy.

    i ran xine-check and it said I had mulitiple version of xine installed. I recently did an upgrade of xine and thought it copied over the old version, guess it didn't.

    It also said my version of X server doesn't support YV12 overlays.

    so how do I go about fixing this, I got installing/compliling down, never did an uninstall before.
