xine crashes with some wmv files

Symptom: xine, mplayer, totem, or any linux video playing application segfaults when trying to play a Windows Media 9 file

This bug has been fixed in the CVS version of xine. You can compile it by source or download one of the nightly builds to fix the problem. I used this site’s unofficial xine builds of libxine1, xine-ui, and w32codec.

Oddly the videos still don’t work in totem.

Update: Ok now totem works too. You’ll need CVS of xine-lib and totem. I also needed to download version 2.8 of nautilus-cd-burner to satisfy a dependency.
