Can't play WMVs in mplayer or xine

I used to be able to play Windows Media Video files in mplayer, but I think since I've upgraded to the newer codec pack (codecs-20050412-1), it has stopped.... or something happened anyway -- I'm not sure where I went wrong.  Anyway, both mplayer and xine crash whenever I try to play a WMV on my nvidia-based XFCE desktop (not using renderaccel or transparency).  Xine doesn't seem to give me any feedback on the crash, but from the crashing mplayer, I get this:

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

It should be noted that I can play avis and mpegs just fine in either viewer.  Any ideas, anyone?

thanks

Thanks for the feedback.  As far as I know, I haven't altered anything.  Yes, I've tried several WMVs (that used to work just fine), and none seem to work any longer.  It's strange...

Just watch your WMV's under Windows. DRM really makes Media Player stand out from the crowd smile
