Using an AMD64 system. I have mplayer-bin-1.0_pre8 and win32codecs-20060611 installed. When I try to play a realvideo strem, for example:
All I get is the sound since mplayer-bin failes to load the codec:
Error: /opt/RealPlayer/codecs/drvc.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Win32 LoadLibrary failed to load: drvc.so, /opt/mplayer-bin/lib/win32/drvc.so, /usr/lib/win32/drvc.so, /usr/local/lib/win32/drvc.so
Error loading dll
ERROR: Could not open required DirectShow codec drvc.so.
The file drvc.so isn't installed from the win32codecs since the real use flag is masked from the profle. If I unmask this useflag in /etc/portage/profile/use.mask -real, it installs the real codecs also. The drvc.so now exists but fails to load with the same error message as above, but if I create the /opt/RealPlayer/codecs/ and symlink the files from /usr/lib32/real/, it works. I haven't got realplayer installed.
So why is the realcodecs masked out from win32codecs, and why doesn't mplayer-bin finds in the first place?
