Aha! Thanx!

Getting back to the OP's original problem of not being able to play an
avi file, I just played an vi file with gxine with no problems.
But then I am not sure what format of video was inside the avi file,
since avi can be a container of different formats.
My only familiarity is that most of the avi files I played contained
mpeg4 format videos.
So, I wanted to say to Oliver these are the *xine* packages I have
installed on my system:
gxine.i686                        0.5.905-3.fc13       @fedora
xine-lib-devel.i686           @fedora
xine-lib-extras.i686          @fedora
xine-lib-extras-freeworld.i686      @rpmfusion-free
xine-plugin.i686                  1.0.2-3.fc12         @fedora/12
xine-ui.i686                      0.99.6-4.fc13        @updates
xine-ui-skins                     0.99.6-4.fc13        @updates

xine also depends on many codec libraries in order to play all
the various formats. MS formats are proprietary, and so require
One place to get them from is

Unfortunately, I do not know if any of the fedora repos package them.
