    I tried converting the file to other formats (mpg2 and others) but "totem and xine" still do not find the decoder. (The truth is that use almost all formats including vlc (windows) to convert) What makes me think that I have something misconfigured, it can not not be able to see a mpg2 video in linux.

    Thanks for reading this and perdeen to google translate .. (he made his best effort)
    Hi
    Run the command;
    Code:
    gst-inspect
    That should show all the codecs for your system. SP2 is rather old, so
    it will be hard to find packages unless you rebuild yourself. Else you
    might need to purchase the fluendo codec bundle....
