Hello,

I would like to use gxine on a Lubuntu system primarily for viewing videos. I have installed it successfully from the repository, and without any further modification it allowed me to view asx files. Yet, I have not been able to view mov files. I followed the instructions shown here: http://www.xine-project.org/faq#quicktime. It states that the file I need to unpack is called essential, although there are several files with that name. So, I interpreted it as these two:

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/essential-20061022.tar.bz2

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/essential-20071007.tar.bz2

I would suggest that these two are different versions of the same file. I'd try the latest, the one with the date 20071007. Though I don' know which is the relation between xine and mplayer. I remember that I used these codecs with MPlayer a couple of years ago.

Bye.
