Skydive video solved

Postby addr » Sat Nov 01, 2008 5:01 pm

In Gnome... Mandriva, SuSe and Fedora following their codecs installations I have been unable to play this video, which is essentially a home video after a commercial start.

In each case the video has played after downloading Kaffeine. In Mandriva and SuSe the KDE version play it (Kaffeine again) without issue.

This distro, Mint Gnome x86_64, won't play it either which is disappointing since I thought codecs were pre-installed.
I'd like to get this going without installing a KDE app into Gnome.

Any ideas?

Edit: I have Mint KDE CE installed and it plays without issue.

Edit: Kaffeine does play it! Xine engine.
