Hi Paul. Thanks for the reply. I had subsequently got Mplayer fixed on Gentoo,
but didn't post back as the original post was about Norv's movie. It turned
out that I was so impatiant to watch the movie, that I didn't have the
correct video driver selected. gl X11 (OpenGL) & the gl2 multiple
textures version both work, but at the time I thought it was a codecs
problem. Not knowing where to look, to find out what packages connected with
Mplayer were available, you know. Something like synaptic. I gave up and
fixed the FC1 hardware problem so as to watch the movie on that. Any pointers
on where I can find an available packages list on Gentoo? I still can't play
the movie at full screen on the Gentoo machine, even though it's a faster
machine than the one with FC1 on it. The video becomes stuttery and the sound
becomes broken up, but at about half screen size it's ok. Mplayer seems quite
complex, and had only used it for playing DVD's until Norv's movie, so I've
obviously got to learn a lot more about it. Nigel.
