looks perfect.

1st i noticed that the new configure silently ignores the 
not-so-new-any-more idea of integrating several different codec-libs.
please add "-D__NEW__" to the CXXFLAGS in Make.config. (i don't think 
that this will fix any of the current problems, but probably some others 
that haven't yet popped up...)
you will have to recompile the whole thing (not the whole thing, just 
the stuff in Pixes/)

you might have a problem with non-power-of-2 textures (yes, i do know 
that your textures are power-of-2 (at least alea.mpg and anim-1.mov))
try sending "mode 0/1" and "client_storage 0/1" to the [pix_texture] and 
see what happens.

what graphic card do you have ? nvidia ? try using their headers (on 
debian they come with nvidia-glx-dev but you have to copy them from 
/usr/share/doc/nvidia-glx/dev/include/GL to /usr/include/GL)

as for aviplay: you will most probably need some codecs to decode most 
avi's. i don't think there are some for amd64

as for quicktime: qtplay comes with quicktime (on debian it is in 
quicktime-xutils); make sure you are using version 0.9.3 (has fixed some
