Hello all together,

as you can imagine i got a problem. Its that i cant play Videos of any type
(mpg or avi) on my brand fresh installed pdaxrom rc121 (directly from

Ive installed some files like mplayer_pre_0.8 and the xmmsmplayer-plugin with
the mpg123_0.59r from the original feed.

Still it doesnt play any kind of vid (but its starts opening a window, but black, and
nothing happens).

I hope one of you could help me with this issue...

Thx in advance

no i havent. Ive installed now ffmpeg and libffmpeg and tried again, but the same Failure. smile.gif

Ok so i tried ffmpeg with a mpg-file in the shell, but ffmpeg just tries to rerender the file.
So i tried at last mplayer direct in the shell with the following error: cannot open shared libraries.

Ok, so where to get these lib ? smile.gif

i will try searching for it in the feeds... has to be there... thx for the hint smile.gif
It should be in the feed, if not, check in an older feed.
bear in mind you are using r121... rc stands for release candidate which this is not, r121 is the subversion revision number.
