      Did you put the Medibuntu repository in your sources.list file? (You can do it simply enough from the package manager--although I gave up on the new one in Kubuntu Jaunty and installed Synaptic instead.

      Once you do that, install the VLC media player. Its dependencies are installed along with it, including support for nearly all the video you are likely to run into.

      Once I did that, I had no problems with video of any kind I've run into--and I have the choice of using Dragonplayer, VLC, or Miro (which I use for downloading and watching many podcasts as well as the news from the major networks).

      The only real problem I had was getting my wireless home router recognized with the somewhat brain-dead wireless setup in Kubuntu. No matter what I tried, it simply would not recognize my WEP passphrase. I plugged into my router directly and downloaded wicd and it worked like a champion.

      I live in Ukraine, so I use ktorrent to download many of the current-season TV shows to watch here because I can't get them any other way I have found. I have had problems with none of these.
