Totem Xvid broken

Postby bwat47 » Tue May 03, 2011 2:58 pm

Is totem totally borken when it comes to playing xvids for anything else? I get sound when I open an xvid in totem but the video is just colored lines. VLC and Mplayer work fine.

h.264 files have a similar issue but not as bad: ... hot1bl.png

A quick search revealed some problems with totem and xvid in Debian. Perhaps it's easy to stick with VLC.
