[mythtv-users] Mpegs and DVD isos on xine on Fedora 9 and Fedora 10

Recently xine stopped playing DVD isos and mpegs on my myth systems 
and I would like to document the solution here.

Recent updates to Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 have eliminated the 
xineplug_decode_mpeg2.so file from /usr/lib64/xine/plugins or 
/usr/lib/xine/plugins directory. Without that file, xine will not 
play a DVD iso or an mpeg file.

In order to reinstall that file into the plugins directory you need 
to install the xine-lib-extras-freeworld rpm. It can be found at the 
rpm.pbone.net, icm.edu.pl, or rpmfusion repositories.
