    Please pay a bit more attention to what your replying to SDK!

    avols143 I've tried to replicate your problem, but I don't seem to be able to. I don't know why, my mplayer doesn't even start-up (then again I've never touched it before so its most likely not installed, but still has its icon there). As for playing CD's then I would check your alsamixer in terminal mode to make sure that the CD isn't muted (this will be displayed by 'MM' above the fader). If thats all good then the next best thing I can suggest is checking your hardware. Check weather or not you have a cable going from the ROM to the sound card, this shouldn't be the case if you're using a newer version of XMMS as it has just added a digital audio extraction feature allowing you to bypass the old method.
    It might help if you told me what Linux you're using.

    Was mplayer installed when u installed whatever distro you have chosen? it would also help to know wich distro you are using. For example i had all sorts of problems with playing various multimedia in redhat 9 but have had none such problenms with slack. This is a shot in the dark but are you sure you have all the proper codecs installed?

    Zombie has it for me........................why should Bill Gates give away anything that works with *nix???? it is "Windows Media Player"???

    That is where the problem is IMHO

    Okay well you may have to manualy install the mp3 and mpeg video support. I had some problems getting video to work but the mp3 went pretty smoothly. check out the various RPM sites to find what you are looking for.
