I love PCLOS. First tried it on my laptop. I loved it so much I dual booted my desktop. But this problem is specific to my desktop. Which is strange considering my desktop is faster with better graphics. Anyways, its an older desktop, amd 3200+, 2gig ram, geforce 210 graphics. The problem is with video playback on vlc or mplayer. I can get flashplayer working fairly well. I had to downgrade to version 11.1 which I hear is common with certain nvidia cards. But I have no clue how to get vlc working. It works perfect on my old laptop, which is basically a heap of garbage. This desktop should easily handle playing flv videos. And I'm talking about flv after its already been downloaded with say download helper or downloadthemall. By the way I'm running the lxde version. I tried the kde, but I'm addicted to the speed of lxde. Its up to date, I check every day. I tried to search and find out if I was missing any dependencies, but I can up with nothing. Anybody else have any experience with this. Any help would be appreciated. Next weekend I will log on to the chat room and see if I can get any help there but I really don't have much time until then. Really just hoping someone can shoot me a quick fix. OH........and I've only been using linux for a week so please respond accordingly, thanks.
