[GR] I downloaded xine and it played the DivX (*.avi) video stream with
sound, no problem. For some odd reason, apt-get (Ubuntu "Hoary") won't
let me install mplayer, it says it depends on libraries it won't
install. In any event, it works now, so I can watch my movie. Thanls to
all who contributed.
