All the restricted codecs can be found in the libxine1-codecs package. I 
can't provide a libxine1-codecs-32bit package becouse we use the same 
sources as SUSE and SUSE doesn't provide this package. You can install 
the i586 version, but then the x86_64 package doesn't play any 
restricted codecs any more.

I don't see a reason for xine-ui-32bit package. The xine-ui package 
contains the frontend GUI, you can install the i586 or x86_64 package, 
but not both (it's installed into /usr/bin and has it's configuration in 
~/.xine there can't be two xine-ui binaries).

When there are videos that can't be displayed by libxine/ffmpeg itselve 
(I haven't seen some for a while) install libxine1-codecs i586 xine-ui 
i586 and w32codecs-all. Change configuration of the decoders, increase 
the win32a and win32v entries.
