Has anybody out there got any pointers, none of the media players
will play
my videos in Maverick - did in Lucid OK.
I've added the medibuntu repository, I've added all the codec
libraries I
can find, but.......
All the media players complain in a similar way - below is the
output with dragon player:

The error message isn't giving any useful info as to why the videos
are not playing. The ibus related warnings are concerning multilingual
input switching and can be ignored.

maverick is still using the Xine backend for Phonon, so I would check
that you have the package libxine-extracodecs installed as well as

what starts the 'ibus-daemon', what is this daemon doing? what
would happen
if I invented .config/ibus/bus?

Thanks Clay
This turned out to be my old enemy - libdvdcss - ha. What a memory I
haven't got.
As soon as I installed libdvdcss2 from the repos all the media players
started working.
My next project is to find out how to convert a camera video file to a
VIDEO-TS dvd so

that it will play on a TV video player - you may wish me luck.
