      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

problem playing .avi files

Recommended Posts

Guest shlomo

I'm running Mandriva 2010.1 with all updates installed.


Recentely, I can't play .avi files with gxine, xine, mplayer, kmplayer, VLC or kaffeine, but Dragon Player does work.

I also can't rip and encode a DVD (tried dvd::rip, acidrip and k3b).


I think that both problems may be connected to a missing codec or library but don't know how to fix the problem.


With xine and mplayer, I get audio only and the following errors:




Video Codec: XviD (XVID) null




mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libopencore-amrnb.so.0:

cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory



All the usual codecs and libraries (including XVID and libopencore) are installed


[solomon@shlomo1 ~]$ rpm -qa|grep xvid




[solomon@shlomo1 ~]$ rpm -qa|grep codec








[solomon@shlomo1 ~]$ rpm -qa|grep libdvdcss



[solomon@shlomo1 ~]$ rpm -qa|grep libopencore





[solomon@shlomo1 ~]$ ldd /usr/bin/mplayer

linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000)

libncurses.so.5 => /lib/libncurses.so.5 (0xb779d000)

<<<< snip snip snip >>>>

libbs2b.so.0 => /usr/lib/libbs2b.so.0 (0xb6cae000)

libstdc .so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc .so.6 (0xb6bbd000)

libopencore-amrnb.so.0 => not found

libopencore-amrwb.so.0 => not found

<<<< snip snip snip >>>>


I may have a problem with an incorrect version of libopencore because:


[solomon@shlomo1 ~]$ locate libopencore








I don't know why this happened or how to fix it. What am I missing?
