hi,

is there a official codecpack in the repo available?

i installed 5.8 soho and in kaffeine are the win32codecs missing....

so i can go to mplayer-homepage and download the essential codecpack and put it in the working directory of xine..

or is there a tlz package somewhere?


greets günter

Actually, the problem is that the codecs are installed in /usr/lib/codecs (the new default place) instead of /usr/lib/win32 (the old default location for codecs). To fix it, make a symbolic link /usr/lib/win32 pointing to /usr/lib/codecs:

Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/codecs /usr/lib/win32

[edit]
Now that we're talking about it, perhaps we should keep the symlink in vl 5.9 as well because of compatibility issues like these? It used to be in 5.8 standard, but was lost in 5.8 SOHO (or somewhere in between), and it isn't on 5.9 standard either.

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

did i get it right...the win32 codecs are by default installed in soho 5.8..

only on another place..hence the symlink..and i dont need to install the package..rather change in xine the path or set a symlink
