A decorder is either a special plugin/codex that gets installed
into the OS ( codex called a52dec) and decoding happens internally.
or a hardware device like a stereo receiver that is able to
understand Dolby Digital signals from the DVD through S/PDIF connector
from the sound card to decorder.
however, it only appears you are only missing a52dec? Have you
installed a52dec from ports/audio/gstreamer-plugins-a52dec/ ?
