after update XVID won

Bug #173297 reported by ShavedMyDog on 2007-12-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
totem (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem

Last week my Ubuntu installation was able to play xvid (like the whole last year).

Now after several updates it is not possible anymore.

Totem: Video codec 'XviD' is not handled. You might need to install additional plugins to be able to play some types of movies
Other video-players like kaffeine, gxine and mplayer are having the same problem.

Avidemux is still able to read xvid.

w32codec and xvid are installed.

some additional infos:
- tv playback in kaffeine works
- mpeg2 playback works

- reinstalled w32codec / xvid / gxine / kaffeine / mplayer => no result
- installed gstreamer*xvid*something => installation worked => xvid playback still does not work

this looks really strange to me, it seems like only xvid is "broken". It would be nice if someone figures out what I can try to fix this - I have recorded a lot of stuff from tv and converted to xvid - which can't be watched any more
