    Are you trying to decode mpeg-2 data files? Like SVCD's? If so, you will need either a software dvd player, or find a mpeg2 decoder by doing a search in yahoo.

    Well, tell me then what the file is? Also, if you could tell me the video resoution, that would be very helpfull. If its 480x480, then its almost definatly mpeg 2.

    I've been running into the problem of movies not playing since I recently re-formatted my box. It's a pain with ALL the codecs out there, I always find myself downloading a new codec every other day. Then I found this:

    http://ace.subpage.net/

    Has a bunch of codecs in one package and a simple versitile front end player. I can play every movie I download now. Until another another hack of mpeg4 comes out... Note: This package is bloated, I disabled the 3 startup apps it loaded.

    -crontab -l
