avi using xmms

Is there a way of getting avi files to play video using xmms?

I've installed the xmms-mplayer but it only gives distorted sound.

Mplayer plays the avi file without any probs.

distorted sound may be due to many things... is the file corrupted (does it play good in, say, xine?)? does sound work normally in plain-old mplayer?

I meant to say that it skips quickly through the sound with occassional intelligible speech being heard.  No video window opens.
The file plays properly in xine and mplayer, so its not corrupted.

depends on what file this is (codex, format, ...), try renaming it to *.mpg and then importing it to xmms ... the trouble with xmms-mplayer is that it is not able to open all files and it lets xmms decide if it is audio or a format xmms-mplayer plugin is needed (e.g. file.mp4 i even cannot open in xmms only because xmms decides that mp4 is no format xmms can read)

no guarantee that this renaming works
