Video playback complains about missing avutil-50-x86_64-linux.so dll - G-forze - 2012-07-10 21:12
I'm turning to you guys because my own limited hacking skills have failed me. I've been running XBMC on a headless 64 bit Ubuntu server (12.04, Atom processor, Intel's integrated graphics) which, among many other things, serves as my media center.
Earlier I was running XBMC 10 with no problems, but when Eden came out I wanted to upgrade. Since it took a while for it to get into the Ubuntu repos, and I'm an impatient guy, I installed from a PPA. It worker alright, after ironing out a few kinks. Recently, I wanted to try out the AirPlay functionality, which for some reason did not work with the PPA install. So, in order to fix it, I uninstalled XBMC, removed the PPA from sources and re-installed from the now-supported Ubuntu repos. And, voilà, AirPlay started working!
That would all be fine and dandy, except for me, later on, making the discovery that video playback no longer works at all. The logfiles complain about a missing dll (/usr/lib/xbmc/system/players/dvdplayer/avutil-50-x86_64-linux.so) and 'tis true, the directory /usr/lib/xbmc/system/players/dvdplayer/ is completely empty. I've tried googling this problem for a few hours, but noone seems to have the same issue.
Can some enlightened person tell me what's going on here? What is the problem and how can I fix it? If it cannot be fixed, what is the best way to (completely) re-install XBMC? I will be grateful for any pointers!
