xine doesn't seem to recognize the codecs I install. I put them in /usr/lib/codecs like I've seen in other posts, and I checked .xine/config to make sure the path was ...

xine doesn't play wmv9 files
When I try to play wmv9 file I get a message:
Missing Windows Media 9 codec
btw, I put codecs in /usr/lib/win32 too for good measure

Hmm.. i've never tried wmv9 codecs on linux before. have you installed w32codecs?

Yes. I installed that from the rpm and it didn't help

It seems like you're just missing some codecs; the xine config is probably ok. Unfortunately, I have no idea which codec you need...It's strange win32codec didn't work' you'd expect a codec to wmv 9 files would be there...
Anyway, look around, try downloading other codec libraries.

Okay, two more suggestions you can try...
1) if you havn't already, try installing VLCPlayer. I believe that includes it comes packages with it's own set of codecs, and can play many formats.
2) In windows, try installing a program like AVIcodec (http://avicodec.duby.info/) which can tell you exactly what codec/ version a media file is encoded with. Then try doing a google for the exact codec + "linux" and see if anything comes up.
If you can put a small part of the file you are trying to play up online somewhere, i or other people could try it out too and tell you if we have any luck.

Just a theory, but if you installed Xine as an rpm it probably doesn't know where to look for your codecs (not sure why not as you said you put the correct path in the config file). Assuming that's true, open a terminal and go into /usr/lib/codecs
Then become root, and type ln -s /usr/lib/win32/ Follow this by typing ls -al . You should see something that looks like: win32@
So the idea is that Xine will look in /usr/lib/codecs and load the codecs from /usr/lib/win32
Not sure if that will work, but it's an idea.
::Edit:: I realised after I posted this that I also have trouble playing some wmv files with Xine. I use Kplayer for those, which is basically a gui for Mplayer. It seems to be quite an under-rated player imho, but I've had some luck using that.
