Suppose you have got the win32codec and you still experience that
problem - like I did.
I've got a working solution from
Here is what I have done (it's exactly what is said on the mentioned
site) and worked well - no more segfaults with .wmv in xine or mediaplayer:
1. Edit /etc/syconfig/prelink and change
2. touch /var/lib/misc/prelink.force
This relinks all the applications, and it takes quite a while.
4. execstack -s /path/to/mplayer
execstack -s /path/to/xine
This turns off exec-shield for the mplayer and xine binary.
Hope it works for you as well.
