The title says it all, lol. I've searched to no avail.

My media center box records TV in the dvr-ms format, and I'd like to be able to watch it on this ubuntu install without having to convert it.

Thanks for any insight

IIRC, it's just a wrapped mpeg-2 stream. Look for a dvr-ms to mpeg2 converter.

You just can't use the win32codecs along with something like mplayer or VLC?

That did it! Thanks!!!!!!

I'm running the new 8.04 on my laptop... it just replaced xp, haha. I only use my laptop for docs, programming, watching recorded tv, and other usual stuff. Needless to say, ubuntu is working out very well so far. Only minus so far is that I can't enable nicer graphics because I'm not running any restricted or third-party graphics drivers.
