Is there some reason why I tend to have better luck playing videos in windows with the K-Lite Codec Mega pack than linux?
Are there some codecs which are not in linux?

Can you give an example (link?) to a video ?
With only a general question I can't do anything.

Can you try another avi media to see if it works? 

I read that if one has compiz installed, turning it off can help.

I still like VLC, and would like to try installing it in Pardus 2009.  I use VLC in XP as I have never had the need to get extra codecs, like some of the other third party media players, such as  BSplayer for Microsoft Windows.  Ooo ooo, I see Bubbel has VLC available on his server.  I must ask how to install this.

vlc is on the pardus-2009 repo. Open Package Manager and search for vlc.
SMPlayer and Dragon Player also work well.

OK I tried dragon player and it did work.
SMPlayer plays the movie and then it just freezes after 1min or so. I can go the another part of the movie and it just does the same thing.

This is what the two players told me:
SMPlayer
Code:
Video
Resolution
640 x 360
Aspect ratio
1.7778
Format
XVID
Bitrate
1191 kbps
Frames per second
25.000
Selected codec
ffodivx

Initial Audio Stream
Format
85
Bitrate
128 kbps
Rate
44100 Hz
Channels
2
Selected codec
mp3

Dragon Player doesnt seem to tell me anything about what its doing.
