Video doesn't play
I am trying to play some video files, but nothing works. I have installed mplayer (including their binary codecs), xine, VLC and every library to do with video codecs I could find. Thre has been some progress - at least the video file icon gives a still preview of the video! Anyway, when I try to play any video file using any video player, the player loads, then everything freezes and it logs me off! What can I do or change to stop this? I'm using Fedora Core 6, and my video card is ATI Radeon X1650 Pro. I have installed the official ATI drivers for it. Please Help!
The problem could be with the ATI drivers, which aren't, um, known for their quality.I have sold my soul to the penguin
Thank you. I think the problem was with me installing the codecs or something. I have reinstalled Fedora again, and this time used some good installation tutorials I've found (http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Fedora_FC6). I have done as they said, and now the video is working! It was my lack of experience in linux, I guess. Although the compiz and desktop effects don't work, but I guess it is to do with the fglx (or something) ATI driver.
