i built my own MPlayer and installed a lot of software. the problem with this is that i don't know which software i installed that triggered the option in the menu. the software i got to build mplayer for gap with is this: ffmpeg-0.4.8 libdivxdecore-0.4.7 mpeg2vidcodec_v12 nasm-0.98.38 xvidcore-1.0.2 i seem to remember removing the things that did not work or install from that directory. i wish i understood the software more and could give more specific help. carol _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimpfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
