it starts, captures an avi file (xvid codec) and plays it.
What does not
help>about virtualdubmod shows an empty black window. about virtualdub works though, even with those nice cube rolling all over the window
What was not tested
you will need to install some codec pack (otherwise it is unusable in windows as well). I used allinone codecpack and it complaint about missing msvcp60.dll - I donwload it from the web, I am not sure if it helped, becasue it installed anyway, but you might want to give it a shot. For install, just unzip it somewhere in program files directory It is likely codecs will not work out of the box. Edit ~.wine/drive_c/windows/system.ini, you should add lines like this: vidc.DIVX=DivX.dll vidc.XVID=xvid.dll codec (dll) should be in system32 directory make sure you have win xp set up in winecfg disable directx in options>preferences>display you should be all set now

So far so good. Following overrides and configs were done in virtualdubmod to get things working:
1. Go to ~/.wine/ and make system.ini with the following contents:
That is for recognizing xvid as a codec after installing. You can do similar things to add recognition for other codecs. Alternatively, using the native msvfw32.dll will autodetect installed codecs.
2. Then to avoid an error, go to Options->Preferences->Display and untick Use DirectX for display panes.
