    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>

    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.

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

    So here the best 'solution' for a mplayer/mencoder build would be to statically link.

    *removed* - static linking for gcc > 4,4 fixed in mplayer -
    r35060 | cehoyos | 2012-08-06 11:39:04 -0400 (Mon, 06 Aug 2012) | 1 line

    Second try to fix auto-detection of static libraries.
    Side note - as to actual value you can enable opus thru ffmpeg, 12.04 doesn't have the opus libs, 12.10 does
    Selected audio codec: [fflibopus] afm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg libopus)

    Hi mc4man

    I compiled opus.
    (And libogg and opus-tools)
    (See attachment)
    So opusdec and opusenc and opusinfo are OK.
    And FFmpeg compiles with "--enable-libopus".
    Also mPlayer ./config found libopus automatically.
    "Checking for libopus decoding support ... yes"
    mPlayer ./config found x264 because I compiled it "shared" and removed libx264-dev.
    It did not find vpx, so maybe I will compile it "shared" too next time.
    Though I don't think that I'll ever need to use vpx with MEncoder.

    Perhaps your MEncoder compile suggestions will be added to the mPlayer wiki sometime.
    (But there isn't much interest in MEncoder these days).

    Some details on this web page for compiling libopus that might be useful for the wiki page:

    *****************************mplayer.html#libopus

    and another sample file. It will be interesting to see how opus fares, libvpx had a similar fanfare...

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

    I have synced the Ubuntu Wiki with the web guide so quite a few changes now. Important one is that I have added in MEncoder and courtesy of Carl Eugen Hoyos static linking of x264 now works well enough and as per the web guide a truly local installation will not interfere with the system x264. I removed directions to compile live555 as the repository version works well enough. Plus added in libopus as mentioned above.

    Since it is a wiki I hope that any mistakes I have made will be corrected by others in this thread .
