If you're using Dapper, you need to install the libxine-extracodecs
package from multiverse.

If xfmedia continues to crash despite having installed the
aforementioned package, please post a five- to ten-second sample of the
affected video on a public Web space.

Thanks a lot. This solved the problem.
