Any error message? If you're brave, try to put strace before mplayer (like, strace mplayer foo.avi), and see whether you see a EPERM somewhere that might be the reason of the failure?

why if i'm brave? anyway this is the message i get.. to be clear the progs work just that they only work as root..

Code: Select all

The Application "totem" has quit unexpectedly.

You can inform the developers of what happened to help them fix it.  Or you can restart the application right now.





and i can restart close or inform developers
