This was chapping me that I couldn't get it to work. I tried some suggestions online but they just could not work for me. Well I found this one:

And this totally works. I felt like I was installing half of KDE but it's cool. I ripped a DVD short played and looked great and now I'm into a bigger 2 hour movie length DVD rip.

So far so good!

BTW if you look long enough and hard enough someone has figured out how to fix the problem you're having!
