I'm running RH9 on my laptop, with mplayer-0.90 (from freshrpms.net). I
downloaded the full win32 codecs archive. I also downloaded the qt6
codec archive (from the mplayer web site. However, I'm unable to play a
QT movie. Instead, I get the following error:

vo: X11 running at 1024x768 with depth 16 and 16 bpp (":0.0" => local display)

*** If it still does not work, read DOCS/codecs.html!
Cannot find codec matching selected -vo and video format 0x33515653.

the audio for the movie plays just fine. This looks like it is a bug. I
can't find any info on this error in any of the docs.
