Trouble playing certain videos with mplayer(codec issue)

Recommended Posts

Hello I have a problem i'm trying to sort out. I have suse 10 and I use mplayer to play my videos. Most play fine but there are certain disks I have that simply don't work even tho I have the win32codec pack installed on my system. I'm kinda lost as to what to do next so any help would be appreciated. When I run the file which is either an mpeg or a .avi I get an audi codec error and garbage shown in the screen. If I run mplayer from the console I get the output below.

Hello Anyweb Thanks for replying.

. I installed the win32codec pack full a long time ago through yast, and the source is the site packman. I can play most any other media, it's just 2 collection of movies that don't work. THey are .avi and .mpeg.

It's 2 seasons of star trek that don't play for some reason. They played in windows when I burned them but in linux I get the codec error. So I know the files play.

 

Thanks
