    Excellent news . I hope that the majority of people sail through this guide with no problem, most only post when there is a problem I suspect. Anyway all the best with your new copy of MPlayer and MEncoder!

    Your guide is perfect! Thank you for your work!
    The old bug is fixed

    You know if last svn mplayer, support multithread decoding? I've found a guide for get ffmpeg-mt libraries, but I can't understand the difference with main mplayer/ffmpeg.

    Well, it is not perfect but I think it is definitely ready for the release of Jaunty Jackalope. It has been good to have a little preparation time before everybody installs the release version and then thinks 'Hmmm.... now to install MPlayer.....'

    You know if last svn mplayer, support multithread decoding? I've found a guide for get ffmpeg-mt libraries, but I can't understand the difference with main mplayer/ffmpeg.
    I believe that the stock version (=this guide) supports limited multiple threads within a single process for MPEG-1/2 and H.264 only (-lavdopts threads=n where 'n' can be 1-8). I gather the FFmpeg-MT project greatly extends this but I have not used this and have no great knowledge of the project except that it exists :-). Just be aware that if you use FFmpeg-MT you will be even closer to the bleeding edge than this guide takes you.

    I believe also that decoding by hardware cards is what you should really be looking at and vdpau is the flavour of the month. In a sure demonstration that I am losing touch with modern developments I don't have such a card and have not experimented with this. Oh well.....

    All the best,

    Andrew

    So, your using the SVN mplayer and the static links to the SVN FFMPEG libraries that mplayer pulls in. But you lack WMA Pro decoding. Here's the solution

    Code:
    cd ~/src/mplayer
    svn checkout svn://svn.ffmpeg.org/soc/wmapro wmapro
    cp wmapro/wma* libavcodec
    patch -p0 <wmapro/audioframesize.patch
    patch -p0 <wmapro/mplayer.patch
    patch -p0 <wmapro/wmapro_ffmpeg.patch
    This summer of code google project works well. Havent found any bugs so far.

    Great news Nullack. I see that work has been going on this one for many months now and a quick peek at FFmpeg-soc shows that work is still continuing:

    I can see that you have a taste for the bleeding edge .

    Yes my friend it is bleeding edge but its proving to be quite robust actually.

    If we look at the recent commits into SVN, we find that its doxygen related fluff and some bike shedding relating to putting c functions into different areas. This is the same sort of fluff that goes on in many commits for the main ffmpeg branch.

    Hi c-m,

    For some reason the file version.h, which is generated during make by version.sh, has not been detected:

    Code:
    carl@carl-laptop:~$ sudo checkinstall -D --install=yes --fstrans=no --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" \
    > --pkgname mplayer --backup=no --deldoc=yes --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default \
    > --pkgversion "3:1.0~svn-`grep "#define VERSION" version.h | cut -d"-" -f2`"
    grep: version.h: No such file or directory
    There could be a few reasons that this file is not generated but I have a strong suspicion that you may not have been in the right location when you issued the command. If you have followed the guide exactly your source files should be in $HOME/mplayer while your prompt:

    Code:
    carl@carl-laptop:~$
    looks like $HOME. This is more than likely the problem. Have a look at this section of the guide:
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install subversion
    $ cd $HOME
    $ svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
    $ cd $HOME/mplayer
    $ ./configure --codecsdir=/usr/lib/codecs --confdir=/etc/mplayer
    $ make
    $ sudo checkinstall -D --install=yes --fstrans=no --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" \
    --pkgname mplayer --backup=no --deldoc=yes --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default \
    --pkgversion "3:1.0~svn-`grep "#define VERSION" version.h | cut -d"-" -f2`"
    $ make distclean
    and you can see where the navigation lies (in red). If this does not resolve the problem could you run a simple search:

    Code:
    find $HOME -iname 'version.h'
    and this might help.

    SVN is borked due to a bad ffmpeg mmx commit. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
