problems with codecs and xine
Sorry to post about this again, but no one responded to the other one, and I am going to be more specific this time. My problem is this: I can play some videos, but not others. It is not specific to video format, and I can't figure it out, and neither can my cousin, and he is pretty damned good with linux. I have done tests, I can play some .wmv files, but not others, same goes with .mpeg/.mpg. I have also had the same problem with .avi. I downloaded all of the codecs from the mplayer site, all in the essential package, and all the other ones too. When i try to play the videos, I can hear the sound, but I cannot hear the video. Furthermore, I have played a video on my computer before, but now I cannot play the same exact video file. This did not happen until after my cousin compiled me a new kernel and the installation of my video card (ati radeon 9800pro) which my cousin helped me to configure. Somebody please help me.
