Media Player Under Linux - Girl in Need
« on: December 13, 2008, 12:00:08 AM »
Hello Everybody,

First to introduce myself, I am a total beginner to the linux scene.  I'm am running it on my second desktop and so far I love it, even though it can be frustrating.

Anyway... my first problem.

I like to watch movies on http://themoviepit.org/ on my windows box, but so far I haven't been able to get most of them to work under linux. Namely Veoh movies and Divx movies. Can anybody help? These are the best quality movies and I hate having to switch to windows every time I want to kick back and enjoy a movie....


Erica :)

THere are lots of media for linux and I used linux player even on windows..

I prefer to use mplayer, it has gui version as smplayer

You can also use xine etc.

But which distro you are using ?
