    Re: [Howto] Install the svn Mplayer under Intrepid Ibex

    im getting quite a few errors when trying to update. When I recompile I get
    Code:
    svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
    svn: Working copy 'mplayer' locked
    svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)
    then when I run svn cleanup i get
    Code:
    svn cleanup
    svn: '.' is not a working copy directory
    even when I try svn update i get
    Code:
    svn update
    Skipped '.'
    EDIT: Got it working by going to the mplayer website and downloading the snapshot instead of going through the command prompt. Compiled it after installing all of the dev headers and files. Works great! since i watch alot of anime thats in a variety of formats, totem gsteamer/xine wasnt working very well. Im switched to smplayer now!

    Excellent news! MPlayer is an amazing program and it richly rewards the time spent learning to use it. svn snapshot is fine but I think the svn errors you received are easily rectified. The error you received:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros:~$ svn cleanup
    svn: '.' is not a working copy directory
    either means you are in the wrong directory or for some reason your svn materials lack the required .svn material. You can either ensure that you are in the correct directory:

    Code:
    $ cd $HOME/mplayer
    $ svn cleanup
    $ svn update
    or 'cut the Gordian knot' and delete the entire directory and contents and issue the original svn command. If you are happier with the snapshots from the MPlayer website just note that there are 2 different types of snapshots from svn: one with the svn meta information that can be updated if you wish and one without which cannot be updated. This represents the difference between 'svn checkout' and 'svn export'.

    Anyway good to hear you have it all running .

    Re: [Howto] Install the svn Mplayer under Intrepid Ibex

    Somewhat recently, Nvidia has included VDPAU support for some video cards in its release of beta drivers, essentially bringing "purevideo" to linux. In order to demonstrate its capabilities, they created a patch for mplayer to take advantage of the new api.

    I realize this is a somewhat niche application, since these drivers are both proprietary and beta. However, can you offer any advice for applying Nvidia's patch? It can be found at the bottom of the following page: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=123091

    If not, would you consider looking at it in the future when drivers are stable?

    Either way, thanks for the excellent guide.

    I do remember an announcement by the Nvidia people on MPlayer-users but I will have to admit as a man who runs an 'on-board' video chip I glossed over it fairly quickly .

    It is actually a series of patches tied together with an installation script. Of special note is that it appears to require the download of a specific MPlayer svn version: 27960 and also a specific version of ffmpeg: 15884 that is patched.

    If not, would you consider looking at it in the future when drivers are stable?
    Personally I would not actually install it to the system but there should be no harm in running the script 'checkout-patch-build.sh', which only goes as far as 'make' and then running it from the build directory as ./mplayer, utilising the syntax suggested in the README:

    Code:
    $ cd mplayer-vdpau
    $ ./mplayer -vc <VDPAU-codec-name> -vo vdpau <filename>
    It is quite an extensive series of patches so probably will only install cleanly on these specific versions. So I would say test it out but keep your main svn MPlayer in place as well .

    Either way, thanks for the excellent guide.
    The guide still gives me enormous pleasure to write, troubleshoot and support!

    Andrew

    Edit: Looks like there may be an implementation for vo vdpau in svn shortly so perhaps hold off for a bit?

    Re: [Howto] Install the svn Mplayer under Intrepid Ibex

    I don't know whether this is the right topic since I use Hardy Heron, but the other thread about this topic seems kinda closed, so I'll post my question here too:

    First of all: a great guide for installing mplayer from svn

    The only thing i cant get my head around is lirc support. When using mplayer from the package tree, lirc works fine.

    However i needed some extra's for my 1080p video's (coreavc), which runs very nice now. However i can't get lirc to work with the latest svn release of mplayer (dev-SVN-r28274-4.2.4).

    when I run ./configure it shows that it found a positive lookup for --enable-lirc (not for --enable-lircc) and it compiles fine when running make.
    However lirc is not loaded when running mplayer. I've got all the necessary lirc packages installed i guess.

    Any ideas on getting lirc to work with the svn release of mplayer?

    Hi napauleon,

    I have taken the liberty of reproducing in full my reply from the 'other' guide .

    Quote Originally Posted by napauleon View Post

    Only 2 potential problems that I can see. Firstly make sure that you don't try to specifically --enable-lirc in your configure options, with MPlayer the configure process is best left to find the required files itself. If you specify such an option you need also to manually locate all the header files and this is not normally required (in fact I have never had to do it).

    Secondly ensure that you have the required dev files, which you may have already. If you were using Intrepid the required file would be:

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install liblircclient-dev
    and it is probably the same under Hardy but you can check by using the following:

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-cache search lirc | grep dev
    This will give a few choices and probably liblircclient-dev will be one of them. You will then need to recompile. Hopefully this is all that is required, in part because that is the limit of my knowledge of lirc .

    All the best,

    Andrew

    Re: [Howto] Install the svn Mplayer under Intrepid Ibex

    thanks for the suggestions, but unfortunately it didn't help. I tried that already.
    The expectation i had is that mplayer produces a message like "setting up lirc support", but that message isn't there.
    But when i disable lirc, the message "Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote control." does pop up, so the support for lirc seems to be in order i guess.

    Now i have to figure out why my remote doesn't work on mplayer...

    In fact I am out of ideas and my apologies for being little help to you. You have probably read the relevent docs:

    http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/control.html#lirc

    and perhaps the final option is to try the MPlayer-users. This group can be a little firm with some questions and I would suggest lurking a little while if you have not already encountered the attitudes of some in this group.

    All the best with this, and my apologies again,

    Andrew

    Hi I just installed mplayer using this guide and I can't play any dvds.I also had this problem with installing using your other guide to (used smplayer for both guides). All smplayer does is resize and then nothing. I did get this error once

    MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode video
    ID_SIGNAL=11
    - MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
      Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
      disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
    - MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
      It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
      gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
      DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
      won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

    Re: [Howto] Install the svn Mplayer under Intrepid Ibex

    Hi,

    CraymelCage,

    Code:
    X11 error: BadAccess during XSelectInput Call
    X11 error: The 'ButtonPressMask' mask of specified window has probably already used by another appication (see man XSelectInput)
    This error has been mentioned on MPlayer-users and at least one person has associated this with the '-wid 50331660' option. Can you try without this option? Best way is to use the command line as follows:

    Code:
    $ mplayer -v dvd://1
    I note a similar reference to this error, although not with DVD playback, that was solved differently:

    I suspect that the bare commandline will play your dvd's, but I have been wrong before .

    You think that's air you're breathing now?
