I'm new to LinuxMCE (ver 10.04) , an tackling one problem at a time, this is my first attemp via chat rooms. so here goes
I've setup a virtual box (Sun's version) and got the ubuntu up and running, I played many avi, mp4 ... but keeps failing on mkv files, I've install gnome-mplayer to test in case it wasn't support, but I'm able to play mkv file and works great on gnome-mplayer, but LinuxMCE keeps failing, it would seem that it pluto-xine doesn't like it, keeps failing at libvdpau_nvidia.so , it can't find or and when i put a sym link to it. it fails at sharing. I'm not familiar with xine so , has anyone got the pluto-xine working on vbox with mkv files?
I'm using LinuxMCE 10.04, I've tried to do apt-get update and upgrades , but that didn't help. all links found said it was fix on this version. obviously i didn't really expect for it to fix it, i don't get that type of luck. But since gnome-player works and vbox doesn't use the nvidia. it a ' InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH VirtualBox Graphics Adapter' , thier has to be a way to get a vdpau or a driver to work with pluto-xine for the mkv
vdpau is nvidia only, I think there lies your problem. Something not right with the driver?
Can you play other film formats?
