okay, let me start by confessing that i have no idea what i added to my MPlayer that got that working. the MPlayer documentation is full of suggestions for supporting software and i found myself looking for software in many places i would not usually get software from. i eventually drew the line and would only get the suggested software from ibiblio if it was not available from the gnuish sites i am acustomed to. (recently my faith in this site experienced a set back from some interesting screenshots which a lot of work went into but contained only not free and not even smart file formats) one more confession, i can extract frames with the MPlayer i built but my MPlayer will not show video here. it looks like i built all of this in october of last year and there is a more current version that might work. i find it interesting that you do not have both options as well, since i have the XANIM dependent option but since i do not have XAnim installed, i get instructed to install it and told where to get it in an error dialog.
