Full Version: Gxine And Asp Files

I have gxine 3.3-4mdk installed on my dual boot XP-MDK 9.2 OS. I downloaded it from an rpm. I have Opera 7.60 TP2 installed. I can't get gxine to play windows asf files, even though they're listed in the plugin. Gxine will launch, load up 60%, and buffer to 16% and freeze. Here's one site http://blog.radioleft.com/. I works fine on pls and mpeg and others. I know the usual response I get is to use mplayer, but I have tried it many times and it just won't work on my OS, freezes. I would certainly appreciate any help with getting gxine to work. Thanks in advance. That's "asf" files, made a mistake in my subject line.

You need the "win32-codecs" pakcage installed. You can get all the latest xine rpms (including win32 codec support, and dvd descrmalbing) from http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/

Thanks for the reply. How do I link gxine to the win codecs? I have found that since I posted that "gxine" will play "asp and asf" w/o win 32 codecs. I was having an overall sound problem that was cured by reinstalling the OS (MDK 9.2)

The rpm should set it up for you

The Win32 Codec installed in /usr/lib but still no go on that mentioned site, other asf sites will play but there are two that won't. I installed Kaffeine to see if that made any difference but it does the same thing. It's odd that it will hook up to it, obviously recognising the file but won't play.http://airamericaradio.com/ this is the other one I can't get on the windows platform. Real works fine. By the way, how come kaffeine doesn't have a plugin, re: gxine-gxineplugin.so? My version of gxine (rpm) has only the .so plugin not the .la and .a. Thanks again for the reply.
