Hi, thank you for your message. Well, I installed what you suggested, 
but it still says.......

'An error occured. Your GStreamer installation is missing a plugin.'

I'm using a DVD I bought here, and it plays on my XP pc and laptop. I 
just checked. Is there anything else I could be missing?

John.
