When I first compiled it, I specified /usr/local/win32 as the codec
directory and configure told me that it found the codecs there. But, if
I recall correctly, I had problems with libcss.so and had to specifiy
its location as well (I also had problems with the compiler and the
kernel at the time, but was able to resolve all these problems). It
could be that I later forgot to specifiy the correct location of the
codecs and ignored the output. GRNGLRUMPF!!!!
However, I moved the codecs to /usr/lib/win32 and everything works of
As you can see, I am pretty confused at the moment. Could be the fact
that I am currently writing my masters dissertation: Have all the info I
need and don't know how to start. That somehow influenced my capability
of reading output and acting accordingly.
Thanks to everyone on this list for not flaming me too hard. Everything
I got was well deserved and helped me to fix my (movie) problems.
