    Ok.. I downloaded.. vlc for some reason that still didnt want to play it as you can see..

    xlordt@localhost ~ $ vlc vid.ogg
    VLC media player 0.8.6b Janus
    Remote control interface initialized. Type `help' for help.
    [00000230] ffmpeg decoder error: cannot open codec (Xiph.org's Theora Video)
    [00000230] main decoder error: no suitable decoder module for fourcc `theo'.
    VLC probably does not support this sound or video format.
    [00000266] main decoder error: no suitable decoder module for fourcc `vorb'.
    VLC probably does not support this sound or video format.
    status change: ( new input: vid.ogg )
    status change: ( audio volume: 256 )
    status change: ( play state: 1 )

    as from what I see, I still have some downloading to do, but.. I decided to check out mplayer.. I noticed that it didnt have theora support.. so I recompiled it.. with theora support.. and now it works :) just wanted to thank you and to let you know of the success ;).
