[GEM-dev] Gem says quicktime ok, then disagrees with itself

Hey Johannes,

The text should probably changed to something that makes more sense

FFMPEG loader FAILED... Maybe quicktime?
quicktime4linux loader FAILED... Maybe mpeg?
MPEG3 loader FAILED... I give up...
error: GEM: pix_film: Unable to open file: /raid0/media/dv_capture1.mov

As for quicktime DV files I'm anoyed. I know I've played QT DV files in
Gem on linux before, on a suse9 machine maybe a year ago... I just
compiled Gem using whatever libs were installed, and boom it would load
quicktime DV files.

So how do I get my machine to load quicktime DV files?

mplayer plays them fine.

Totem plays them fine (and reports the codec as "DV (ffmpeg)" )

vlc does not play it, tries to load as a MPEG PS (whatever that is)

ffplay does not play it (unknown format) I tried ffplay -img [bleh] but
none of the results of ffmpeg -formats is a valid "format" (including
dv, dvvideo etc..)

Anyone have this working?? I even recompiled Gem with libavcodeccvs from
the mplayer repository still no dice... It it was not so easy that first
time.... *sigh*

Any tips appreciated.
