This is problem I've been facing with Mint from the time I installed it. None of the media players seem to be playing any songs or media. I can see the thumbnails...but when I click on them, it plays for a millisecond and then the player closes. Only rythmbox plays MP3s. Totem and Mplayer always close. I'm using Linux Mint 6 Felicia. I have an onboard ATI 1200, 512 MB RAM, AMD 64 X2 2200. On one random occasion Mplayer played a video when I logged in as root. But it only worked that one time.Please advice.
