    Error playing videos on mycomputer

    I upgraded kali 2.0 sana using apt-get upgrade and I'm longer able to play videos on my computer. This exception is thrown

    This file cannot be played over the network. Try downloading it locally first.

    There is Screenrecorder at the top of desktop ( Camera Icon ) click on it and start video recording , it will be saved on Videos Folder or open your terminal and type : recordmydesktop
    its will start recording , output file will be moved to root folder with name : out.ogv
