    Hi
    I would like to know if somebody is able to play AVI files on the Limpus Media Master video player,
    are there plugins or codecs I can install for this player?
    thank you for your comments

    Hi Mar,
    I am sure there are some more knowledgeable but here is my experience with media master-it sucks.

    There are several tweaks that are supposed to update the mplayer backbone but they never worked for me.

    I went ahead and installed vlc according to macles.blogspot.com. Be sure to read all the comments prior to embarking on it if you do... a comment near the end tells you how to update your repositories so that the process works. Apparently they changed a bit since macles first posted it. I have been very happy with vlc. Plays just about anything you can throw at it. Good luck.

    Hi scudder2u,
    I think also that vlc player is a multiplayer an it is efficient, I used it a long time , I also installed it on Limpus system and it reads AVI files but I prefer Media Master player as its skin is cleaner and nicer, its simple interface is practical as it has large buttons, and I do not need to install software.
    I can play Mpeg and Wma files with it, and I am sure there is a trick to make it play Avi files too, I am triyng to find the location of the codecs it uses, maybe adding the essential-20071007.tar.bz2 codecs from the mplayer site will work.
    If somebody has an idea it will be really interresting because as I say the less software you install the better.

    hi mar i am also a newbie to the acer and linux I followed the macles guide to install vlc and updated it but still could not play xvid files so this is what i have done right click on the home page >system>software updater untick every thing except media player when this has updated exit and select the terminal type "sudo yum install smplayer"
    exit after the installation then goto your avi/xvid file and right click onit and select play with smplayer

    This may not be very helpful, but...

    You just need to find the correct codecs, do a search for codecs in whatever yum gui you're using and browse around. Using Gnome, there's a gstreamer codec package that you need. Installing Vlc should also solve your problem.

    If all else fails, give up and install FC10!

    I would also like to play some AVI's, but it seems to not want to install.

    My Acer is all up to date, but I cannot even get anything to install.
    When i try through the command line it just tries all of the mirrors,
    then spits out an error. should i just install another OS? If so does
    Fedora 10 make use of the wireless card?

    Sorry for the n00b questions,

    Joe
