How to : Play a real media file



Hi, to play a real media file you need this component. I have tested it on Ubuntu 7.10 before. This is the easy way I do it:

1. Install the Kaffeine player. To install just go to 'Synaptic Package Manager' and search for it. Then, 'Mark for Installation' to install the Kaffeine.

2. You need download the "essential codecs package" from MPlayer download page: http://www.mplayerhq.hu

3. Make directory name "win32" in the /usr/lib with your terminal. Please doing this section with root privilage. Its become /usr/lib/win32 .

4. Extract the "essential codecs package" that you have download before and copy all the contents to /usr/lib/win32 .

5. Open Kaffeine player. For the 1st time the kaffeine can't play the real media. This is because the codec is not define properly. What you can do is, just go to settings --> xine engine --> parameters --> decoder and type /usr/lib/win32 under the external Real Media codecs path. Now you can enjoy watching your real media file. Thats all.
