problem with mplayer or rather kplayer
I just tested to play a video with the bt3 live-cd using kplayer. It didn't work, but with bt3-beta live-cd and kplayer some days ago it worked. I don't know if it's a "bug". But here is the way i fixed it. Maybe not the best solution :-/
1. boot with the bt3-beta live-cd
2. search for "mplayer" in /
3. copy everything to a temporary folder (e.g. hard disk):
4. boot with the bt3-final live-cd
5. copy everything from 3. to corresponding location of the running system
now, kplayer should play videos.
Maybe this procedure is not necessary after a bt3-final hard disk install.
So, its on the menu, but Gslapt isnt on the usb version. No slapt-get either.
The same here, KPlayer is unable to play videos, it hangs, and I have to terminate it. Is this a bug ??

I too had problems trying to play videos using kplayer, mplayer, etc.. Mplayer still does not work on my laptop. VLC worked for me to play dvds, but when playing a wmv, it would only play sound but not video. I finally got kplayer to work by following the instructions for Mplayer setup here : http://circolinux.blogspot.com/2007/...review_26.html .
