    Did you try to watch the video under windoze? Did it work? Which codec was used to encode it? Is that codec present in BT4?

    First off playing media files as root is all bad.

    With that said, I believe your problem has been discussed in:

    hxxp://www.backtrack-linux.org/forums/beginners-forum/75-ask-user-cannot-browse.html

    But to make it even easier, I will go through the steps that I did.

    First create another account (desktop).

    If unsure it's BackTrack Menu>System>Users and Groups.

    Now from a terminal type visudo and press enter. Now scroll down.

    AFTER this line: root ALL=(ALL) ALL

    Make a line that is: YourUserName ALL=(ALL) ALL

    Now press CTRL+x to exit and y to confirm.

    Close the window and logout.

    At the command prompt type login and press enter.

    Enter your username and pass of the NEW account.

    Now it's time for startx and all that good stuff.

    I believe if you installed VLC from your root account it should be global ( all ready for you ).

    And if you install it in this account it will be available ONLY for THIS account and NOT the root account.

    Good Luck.

    I had the same problem. I am using nvidia graphics card. I downloaded my nvidia driver and installed the nvidia settings with apt-get install nvidia-driver. I installed the downloaded package from nvidia with ./Nvidia[...name of downloaded nvida file...].run .
