Mplayer Codecs?
« on: September 27, 2005, 10:07:46 pm »
I have (finally) gotten mplayer and kino2 working, but I can only seem to play vanilla mpeg files...even though I downloaded the codec pack from mplayerhq.hu (was this a good or bad idea)?  When I try to play a wmv file, it complains about the codec (wmv9mod something something) What should i do?

i think the codecs are meant for i386 machines, but can someone confirm this?

That was my suspicion too...but everyone else seems to be able to play movies fine, I extensively searched the forums before asking this.  I would like to know where everyone else is getting their codecs!

Mplayer plays most of its files through the ffmpeg library, which is normally built with it.

WMV9, however, requires a Windows-only codec DLL.  You won't be able to get that to work on your ARM processor without using qemu, bochs, or the like.
