Hi, I'm new to Ubuntu & Fraps so please type slow :)

On my windows machine I capture video from World of Warcraft using Fraps. Yesterday, I downloaded the latest version.

When I copy the fraps file (.avi) to my ubuntu 8.4 machine and try to play them in MPlayer, I get the folowing error:

"This file is encoded with Fraps version 5. This codec only decode version 0, 1, 2 and 4."

Is there a fix for MPlayer or FFmpeg so I can render these videos? I would like to edit them on my linux machine.

Thanks in advance.
