    Howto: Build the svn MPlayer under the latest release version of Ubuntu

    April 29th 2012

    Due to the upcoming changes to this guide's old home on these Forums I have, with much regret, moved this guide to my own personal website:

    Howto: Build the svn MPlayer under the latest release version of Ubuntu
    *********************************/mplayer.html

    where I have just now released an updated version for Ubuntu 12.04, Precise Pangolin.

    I attach a complete copy of the older guide as mplayer_guide.gz in case anybody wishes to make a wiki, blog, web page etc of this guide as it was for Oneiric Ocelot.

    the svn MPlayer requires Version 190.32 (or later) of the NVidia drivers to enable vdpau output. You will need to have these drivers and appropriate vdpau libraries
    If your card supports then just install libvdpau-dev to enable vdpau . If unsure go ahead and build with vdpau support and try - no harm done if not supported.
    YMMV depending on source material and video adapter, you don't have to use it.

    Thanks for the clarification, I am currently compiling against libvdpau-dev on a system without an appropriate card and if there are no error messages in general usage (that is without using -vo vdpau -vc ....) I may very well just add this into the dependencies for the moment. Now to look for a way around the forum's annoying habit of censoring subtitle ./configure options dealing with libass, or more particularly for the options such as '--disable-a s s -internal'...

    Any thoughts on the 'single command' approach? From a purist point of view I am not keen on it and there are some dangers with broken commands, but from a point of view of an Ubuntu user not particularly familiar with compiling I think it provides a way into the often arcane world of building from source.

    overall seems ok - I'd break myself after the mplayer config to allow review if desired

    Now to look for a way around the forum's annoying habit of censoring...--disable-*ss-internal
    Remember some posts about - no recollection of any way around when in a command ( possibly a mod can edit after the fact? - though seems pretty automatic

    Still a few small changes to make but the guide itself looks fairly robust and certainly produces a very usable MPlayer on my own system. I considered adding blueray material but I might wait until support for encrypted disks is added. Glad the guide has been useful for you .

    All the best,

    Andrew

    edit - never mind - A bit confused here - the option is ( --enable-*ss-internal -(autodetect)
    That's as seen in ./configure --help, the configure script shows both options, the autodetect is ?

    I suspect not . Remember though that wma lossless still depends on external codecs and this particular codec is not available to 64 bit installations, so playback is problematic on such systems until such time as a native decoder arrives. Under a 32 bit system it is handled as follows:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~/samples$ mplayer luckynight.wma 
    MPlayer SVN-r31847-4.4.4 (C) 2000-2010 MPlayer Team

    It wont play .ra s-I ve tried updating it-its doing it now...

    (I thought you could run 32bit apps on 64bit systems-I did for a while to get iplayer and flash movies working when there was no 64 bit support

    Edit-updated and still wont play .ra s

    Smplayer wont play the audio opn WM9 videos either-this is something else other people apparently can get ubuntu to do but I ve never been able to get anything to.
