play VMware captures movies on Linux 64bit

My Workstation 6.5 is running on Ubuntu-Linux 64bit. I can record movies, but not correctly play them.

Mplayer only shows the starting screen, and no movements:

Premature end of data! (need 12794 got 6410)

Error while decoding frame!

Which movie player do you use?

Thanks, Uwe

install subversion and development libraries using apt-get or any other utility.

$ svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer

$ cp -a mplayer mplayer-build

$ cd mplayer-build

$ ./configure && make && sudo make install

$ /usr/local/bin/mplayer /path/to/your/movie.avi
