    WMV viewing codec erros and mms:// links, what can I do to fix or update these?


    What up,

    I'm having problems with viewing wmv files on my suse. I tried updating and reinstallig and I am failing with errors.

    what can I d/l to fix my codecs? I can view everything else.

    also there are these links:
    mms://danceizm-tv.ddo.jp/hp/ewp-1.wmv

    there are windows programs to extract these links and d/l them, what program can do that in Linux?

    thanks in advance.

    Peace

    Have you tried installing the codecs via Packman?
    http://packman.links2linux.org/

    More specifically:
    http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=046

    They have rpms there that you can download for SuSE-9.3, 9.2, 9.1, and 9.0. They also have an improved mplayer for downloading (mplayer usually works with mms:// links).

    I think mplayer only works with embedded video i believe. MMS is more like...when you click on it it opens up the player on the desktop rather then right in the website (can't really explain >.<). I'm also wondering how to get this to work cause i wanted to listen to a internet radio station.

    Does:
    mplayer -dumpstream mms://type.your.link.here
    work?

    I'm pretty certain it works, at least it works for some mms. My wife regularly uses it to capture talk-show clips from an Internet radio station.
