    Support for 'Compiling MPlayer' Ubuntu Wiki page....

    This thread is intended for support, discussion and development of the Ubuntu Community Wiki page:

    Compiling MPlayer
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Compiling%20MPlayer

    I would encourage people to not only use this wiki page but also log on and edit + improve the page. I will be stepping back a little from upkeep of the page but perhaps some suggested updates could be:

    1. Make a link from the wiki page to this thread
    2. Add a section on compiling MPlayer2
    3. Add some details for compiling MEncoder
    4. Sort out the live555 mess, it no longer compiles with MPlayer
    5. Add in some useful links


    and whatever people feel is necessary. I will be interested to see if greater community involvement in the wiki version of this guide will yield a better MPlayer experience!
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Updated mpg123 version to 1.14.4:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~$ mpg123 --version
    mpg123 1.14.4
    Good idea to spend a little time on the commandline with this great mp3 player.

    Andrew -
    don't see any issue on a 64 bit install (though using gcc 4.7.1), shortcut-ed past the blue-ray stuff, git of x264 as of the time of this post(don't know how to get version of in this instance, mplayer - 35058.
    ============ Checking for x264 ============

    #include <inttypes.h>
    #include <x264.h>
    #if !(X264_BUILD >= 118)
    #error We do not support old versions of x264. Get the latest from git.
    #endif
    int main(void) { x264_encoder_open((void*)0); return 0; }

    Do have a 32 bit install that I'll try on in a bit
    (you decided it's best to to use a shared libx264 for mencoder?

    For some reason on my 32 bit install get this error unless I just build 'as usual' or build with mencoder/libx264 with libx264 installed normally
    Code:
    mp3lib/dct64_sse.c: In function 'dct64_sse':
    mp3lib/dct64_sse.c:59:13: error: can't find a register in class 'GENERAL_REGS' while reloading 'asm'
    mp3lib/dct64_sse.c:59:13: error: 'asm' operand has impossible constraints
    make: *** [mp3lib/dct64_sse.o] Error 1
    Otherwise on my current 64bit 12.10 the how-to works but one would need to link at runtime...

    You may just consider using the repo libx264-120 or possibly just build the git as shared to /usr/local (though that could conflict with FO's guide..

    shows you how good my memory is...
    In any event for a Wiki method the building of a shared libx264 to somewhere not in default path may not be suitable as mplayer/mencoder would need to be linked to libx264.so at runtime which is easy thru an alias for cli but would be likely a bit more involved for an app that called the mencoder binary directly. (binary redirect ..
    (though maybe Andrew has a good one there...
