    Great news . Have you opened the file with SMPlayer and then adjusted the Video Out device in the preferences? This should hopefully complete the circle and give you access to a modern MPlayer and a great gui for it as well...

    Hi!
    I'm actually stuck in compiling SMPlayer. from the .txt file:

    Code:
    1) How to make a deb package 
    ---------------------------- 
    Be sure you have installed the following packages: libqt4-dev, zlib1g-dev, 
    fakeroot, build-essential, devscripts, debhelper and g++.
    Done

    Code:
    Now run ./create_deb.sh
    daitarn@daitarn-laptop:~$ /home/daitarn/smplayer-0.6.9/create_deb.sh
    cp: cannot stat `debian-rvm/changelog-orig': No such file or directory
    /home/daitarn/smplayer-0.6.9/create_deb.sh: 6: ./get_svn_revision.sh: not found
    rm: cannot remove `build-stamp': No such file or directory
    rm: cannot remove `src/smplayer': No such file or directory
    /usr/bin/fakeroot: line 176: debian/rules: No such file or directory
    /usr/bin/fakeroot: line 176: debian/rules: No such file or directory
    dh_clean: cannot read debian/control: No such file or directory

    rm: cannot remove `debian-rvm/changelog': No such file or directory


    what's wrong? I'm quite a newbie in these kind of things

    Code:
    2) How to make a rpm package 
    ---------------------------- 
    Run rpmbuild -tb smplayer-0.6.x.tar.bz2 
    You'll find the rpm pachage under /usr/src/packages/RPMS/i586/ 
     
    Take a look at this document to know how to create a rpm from the SVN sources: 
    http://smplayer.berlios.de/forums/viewtopic.php?id=188 
     
     
    3) Generic compilation 
    ---------------------- 
    You need at least Qt 4.3 to compile smplayer. It won't work with an older 
    version. 
     
    Be sure you have installed the Qt 4 development package. Its name maybe 
    qt4-devel, libqt4-dev or similar.  
     
    Uncompress the source code, open a console and enter in the  
    smplayer-0.6.x directory. 
     
    Type "make".  
     
    If everything is ok now you can install it with "make install". 
    That will install smplayer in /usr/local. 
     
    If "make" fails, it's probably because the Qt 3 qmake has been used instead of 
    the Qt 4 one. It seems that some distros have renamed that tool to qmake-qt4.  
    Others may have installed in another directory. 
    Look at the contents of the qt4-devel package (or whatever its name is) and 
    find out where it is. 
     
    Now type something like this (just examples): 
    make QMAKE=qmake-qt4 
    or 
    make QMAKE=/usr/share/qt4/bin/qmake 
     
     
    4) Changing installation path 
    ----------------------------- 
    By default smplayer will be installed in /usr/local. You can change it by 
    using PREFIX and DESTDIR. 
     
    Examples: 
    make PREFIX=/usr 
    make PREFIX=/usr install 
     
    That would install smplayer under /usr. 
     
    DESTDIR will be useful for package maintainers. 
     
    make PREFIX=/usr 
    make PREFIX=/usr DESTDIR=/tmp/ install 
     
    That would compile smplayer for /usr but in fact it will be installed in 
    /tmp/usr/

    If you added the ppa then just install smplayer as suggested - sudo apt-get install smplayer

    Rvm's 'create_deb.sh's' are actually very interesting little scripts and do work well, though I'm not sure of any advantage for the smplayer one.
    (used to use the mplayer one, with a few changes to the rules file worked quite well, though haven't used in many months

    If you wish to use or try this method for smplayer then you are at the wrong terminal prompt.

    Simply download the smplayer source (smplayer-0.6.9.tar.bz) extract it and then in a terminal cd to the extracted source (smplayer-0.6.9

    Then run the command and all should be well

    Ex.of prompt
    doug@doug-laptop:~/Downloads/smplayer-0.6.9$ ./create_deb.sh

    I've followed the first and easiest way sudo apt-get install smplayer and I'm now watching the video with SMPlayer

    I am glad that you have had the patience to pursue this matter, the result should be very worthwhile .

    Hi
    I still use Jaunty and have been following this guide successfully a couple of times earlier.
    Thanks Andrew for this great guide

    But when I tried it today (using latest mplayer from svn, rev 30913) I got a error compiling mplayer,
    and since I'm no compilation guru I turn to this thread for some help on why I can't compile.

    Here's some info
    OS: Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty
    Graphics driver: nvidia-glx-195.36-15
    ...
    (I can provide more info if needed)

    Attached is a text file of last 100 or so lines of the compile output
    (where it starts to complain about undefined references for libavcodec.a (I think), and finally ends with an exit 1)

    Thankful for any help...

    PS I've tried to disable x264 and also disable mencoder altogether but to no success.

    It is my pleasure . I will admit that I have been working with MPlayer and Ubuntu for a little too long now and I seem to have little else to contribute in this field but it is nice to have made a contribution...

    But when I tried it today (using latest mplayer from svn, rev 30913) I got a error compiling mplayer
    I get the same error and have for a day or so I suspect the best bet is to wait another day or so. If the situation is not rectified perhaps a trip to #mplayer might be worthwhile but usually the fault is rectified quickly...

    All the best,

    Andrew

    Hi lykeion,

    Compilation succeeds again:

    Code:
