    win32 codecs and xmms


    Hi all,

    I have a bunch of win32 codecs in /usr/lib/win32, but since they're .dlls, I don't know how to integrated them into XMMS. Could someone please tell me how or let me know another method to play .wma and .m4as with XMMS?

    Thanks!

    Have you try "xmms-xmmplayer" ?

    It is a "XMMS plugin that uses MPlayer to play video files".

    MPlayer would make good use of your W32codecs, so in term XMMS would be pleased.

    Would certainly do the trick...

    For Debian, it's all here:

    ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/

    If you have etch, add this to your source list:
    Code:
    deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ etch main
    deb-src ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ etch main

    There is a plugin called xmms-mp4 to play m4a's in XMMS.
