In the meantime you should chase up the Lubuntu developers as well .
    Thanks for your help

    I was writing my previous post while you posted this one. I will try to find some way to the Lubuntu developers...

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

    Tried lubuntu last night (very quick - I tend forget how fast Ubuntu used to be

    mplayer2 is installed by default so if building an mplayer(svn) you'd want to remove it first

    Just to note - on nvidia systems the svn mplayer will default to a -vo vdpau
    If you're playing vdpau supported files without specifying the correct -vc either directly in cli or thru the config file then that can impact performance. If not going to use vdpau the use a -vo xv

    Thank you mc4man,

    I have already removed mplayer2 as you can see in post #370, and the original mplayer works, but I hope it can be more efficient.

    Your tips will also be valuable, when I run mplayer in higher-end computers, that support vdpau. Now I am focusing on lubuntu for low end computers, trying to get decent graphics performance without any vdpau capability.

    I played with the video driver selection and tried to get better performance. Your tip -vo xv doesn't improve the playback quality significantly. I was not able to reach the level of vlc (in the same lubuntu 12.04 daily build version).

    My experience is that it should be possible to do better with mplayer. I have tried several options, for example
    Code:
    -lavdopts fast:skiploopfilter=nonref
    What other options should I try?

    It is with great sadness, after almost 5 years of work, that I remove this guide and place it on my personal web site:
    Why not simply move it to the Wiki? (Sorry if I'm being ignorant here; I honestly don't know what's really going on between the forum and the wiki regarding tutorials, just that they're 'moving'.)

    I have left the full guide attached to the first post in this thread so anybody who wishes can add it to the wiki .
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Thank you Andrew. Just run the guide on my 12.04 Xubuntu installation, works great

    Great news! I admit that I still get a huge buzz from building MPlayer and I look on the new venue for the guide as opening up new possibilities and perhaps a bigger audience. Interesting times indeed .

    Very nice. I've found this to be an interesting resource: Blu-Ray Picture Quality Tier List.
