I have an AVI file coded in video/x-msvideo format. Which plug-in should I install or which USE flag should I set?

If this is relevant I'm trying to open it with Totem or VLC.

If you've tried opening it with VLC without success, post output of

Code:
~ # emerge -pv vlc


please.

video/x-msvideo is too vague.

E.g. file mymovie.avi should provide more useful detail.

I've found ITU H.264 video codec and ADPCM audio codec in the properties of the file.

Your USE flags are in order, as far as I can tell. I also think you should be able to play those codecs with VLC. Is there a console message if you try to open the file on the command line?
