Now tested. Yes. And I learned that some Windows Media audio and video
files already work without the win32-codecs.
Just remove the dependency and add MESSAGE.i386.
To watch or listen to Windows Media (.asf/.wmv/.wma), such as MS
WMV 8 or 9 ASF video, or Quicktime files or streams, install the
multimedia/win32-codecs package. It is not required by default
due to unclear licensing.
The win32-codecs package is not needed for MS Windows Media Audio 2
and MS Windows Media 7 ASF video, because xine-lib already supports
these formats using built-in ffmpeg.
I have some patches to commit.
By the way, does anyone use xine with real player codecs? If so, how?
