Re: Need help with mPlayer



Nigel,

This is Scott his son I am the one who does the updates and that package was very small it didn't take very long for the ffmpeg codec to download. Is there a good place where I can snag the rpm and download it anywhere else?

Scott

Hi Nigel Things are going good.
Hay where can I find the windows codecs package.
THANKS FOR THE HELP.
Art.

The w32codecs package isn't on the Livna list for Fedora 7 (i386), but
installing the ffmpeg package should do.

Just do a yum install ffmpeg

That will pull in the ffmpeg-libs package as well.

Hoping that works.

Nigel.
