    Win32codecs?

    Welcome to the forums!

    The easiest method to install them would probably be with URPMI. You can set that up by going here:

    To my knowledge the Win32 Codecs are not longer required as ffmpeg, mplayer and xine all have native implementations within their libraries. You may just need to update these packages.
