Most likely you are trying to play a video that is not an AVC stream. CoreAVC can only decode AVC streams, and won't work on other formats.
I thought that all h264 encoded videos were AVC streams.
Did you add the codec coreserve to your ~/.mplayer/codecs.conf? coreserve won't work just by installing the codec, dshowserver, and mplayer.
Also, remember to put "-vc coreserve,", notice the comma at the end, that tells mplayer to fallback to other codecs if coreserve doesn't work.
My problem was that I was using /usr/bin/mplayer instead of /usr/local/bin/mplayer.
Thanks for your help guys!
Anybody got it to work with smplayer?
for some reason it doesn't like me puttin rc=coreserve inside .mplayer/config. Though mplayer alone is fine.
thanks again for your time!
I am getting this error:
