View Full Version : mplayer seek failed

I am sure this is answered elsewhere but cannot find help.

I can play a DVD on MoviePlayler but wish to use mplayer however I get Error "Seek Failed" when I press play. I have checked through suggestions elsewhere but don't always understand what I am supposed to do. I am completely new to Linux and Fedora. Any help needs to be 'dummie' friendly. Thanks:(

Ok. Thanks.

Managed to watch Skellig (highly recommend) on VLC and will use that as I did on Windows. just liked the look of mplayer and don't like to be defeated when something doesn't work!
