Hi Ric!
This is happening with most of my AVI files.
The same files were working great with VLC just before the upgrade.
I think it's solved now...I tried with Banshee, and it worked. Then I tried
again with VLC, and it worked not. Then I rebooted, and now everything is
working just fine.
Mysteries of life...
Best regards,
