This could be it:
> video_decoder: no plugin available to handle 'Xvid'
Fedora's xine-lib doesn't include Xvid support.

Re-assigning to xine-lib for confirmation.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2007-01-31 19:19:39 UTC
Confirmed.  There are a few 3rd party repositories around that ship add-on
xine-lib packages containing that functionality.  But it does strike me a bit
odd why xvid would be needed for DVB, I thought it'd be basically all MPEG2. 
There's no MPEG decoder included in the FE xine-lib either, though.

Comment 3 Martin West 2007-01-31 23:53:35 UTC
Very odd - it did work before a recent update, any ideas what caused this change?

Comment 4 Martin West 2007-02-01 19:04:07 UTC
I installed FC6 from DVD and at that point it was working. I did the big upgrade
and then some other updates and then when I went to use it I got the above problem.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2007-02-03 02:02:59 UTC
It appears kernel-2.6.19 may be a culprit, on the kaffeine-devel ml, another fc6
user just reported a once-working machine with dvb, stopped after upgrading to

Comment 6 Martin West 2007-02-03 14:58:48 UTC
Thanks, Looking back thru the history I also installed kino from freshrpms which
updates a number of related artifacts.
