I forgot to mention that this is an amd64 system and I have not yet
bothered to set up any 32 bit capability. I think that w32codecs are
both unavailable and irrelevant. Otherwise, how could mplayer play
dvds without any problems?

I do not have vlc installed. I am not really looking for yet another
media player at the current time; I'm just trying to find out what the
problem is with xine.

Thanks, anyway, for responding.
