Linux Ubuntu Mint Debian cannot play xvid,x264,mp4 or any videos codec issue - xplayer Could not initialize supporting library.

In xplayer I get the following error "Could not initialize supporting library.".  It actually looks more like a gstreamer issue.

For those wondering what the default video player is called it is "xvid" and not "totem" anymore like previous versions.

Basically it looks like some codecs are missing when I uninstalled another program it uninstalled other programs and codecs that it shouldn't have.

I've tried installing all the gstream packages and other codecs but nothing has helped so far.

 There is also this console output:

libva info: VA-API version 0.39.0
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns -1
libva error: va_getDriverName() failed with unknown libva error,driver_name=(null)

Solution:

sudo apt-get remove gstreamer1.0-vaapi
