Found xine easily at xine.sourceforge.net, but lamp eluded me... Do you
have an URL?

There is also xmms, xmps, xtheatre, avifile; am still trying all of
these (most require or at least strongly recommend quite recent versions
of several packages like SDL and XFREE4, so I have to live dangerously
:-) and upgrade my Debian/Potato to 'bleeding edge'...)
Now that the trick of using the Windows DLLs in a Linux player is known
to work, and that there is even an OpenDIVX project, the set of tools
for video is almost complete on Linux (even though most are still 'in
development'). About the only missing piece (but it's a big one!) is
either an open-source encoder for ASF, or an alternate, open, streaming
format. Any pointers?
