Kaffeine and the web

The problem was that the suse distro didn't support divx. Having fixed that
everything does seem to work ok but when I hit save stream konq bombed out
taking all associated windows with it. In this case saving the stream is
perfectly legal as the vid is free to use in the same sort of fashion that
Anybody know a fix for this or is it a bug?
For graphical users or people that are unsure.
On updating Kaffiene if any body want to do that it's fairly simple. Locate a
a xine rpm for your distro. Install it with your package manager. It will
report conficts - that will be a version of libxine. Find that and do the
same. There will be conflicts. Keep working down the list. Just find the
rpm's and install them. This applies to anything that you may want to
The rpm's that will be required in order of installation to avoid the above
are win32codec-all,speex,libxine,and then kaffeine. The distro disks should
provide the other things that are needed.
Don't worry to much about 64 bit rpm's etc as the package manager will not
install them if they aren't suitable (well suze won't). Try for the highest
spec you think you need and work down.
The codecs required are exactly the same as mplayer's. See the xine site.
Keep copies of the lot in case they disappear off the web because in general
all packages will work with more recent versions of the libraries etc that
