    Re: SMplayer Version of MPlayer doesn't support AAC?

    Installed the additional libraries and was able to successfully build MPlayer, but then still getting the error code when I try to play the file.

    If I use XV in SMplayer it plays the file, but there are no subtitles and it is jerky - just like VLC (except VLC does show the subtitles) since the ION2 really needs the vdpau libraries to use the hardware assist. However I think the "real" problem may be in how the embedded subtitles are handled. I ran the file from the command line and got:

    Perhaps I'm just asking too much of an ION2 setup and need to start saving to replace the system with a "real" pc. Still, it would have been nice to get this to work as the box is so small that it really doesn't intrude as much as a usual PC does.

    In any event, thanks for the suggestions!

    Just avoid 10-bit H.264 encodes, and you should be fine.

    I think it's more than that. I have a 720p file that I KNOW isn't 10-bit, and it fails with a similar error. While another 1080p file works just fine. So it appers to be just "some" files with certain types of subs... but so far can't seem to figure out the particular issue to look out for.

    Indeed, I have added this to the page. Although the developers are about to add in an auto check for this library....
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Is it possible you could post one of the troublesome files somewhere?

Try playing it with the xv driver (in SMPlayer Options > Preferences > Video). If your CPU can't keep up with a 1080p H.264 encode, then get a different version of the video.

    I just rebuilt mplayer2 from the source code at http://www.mplayer2.org/ the other day without incident. You'll need to run

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    sudo apt-get build-dep mplayer
    to get the necessary compiler, headers and libraries. After that it should build cleanly just by running "make" after you unpack the archive.
    I believe that the tar file stuff on http://www.mplayer2.org/ is quite old, and probably doesn't properly support 10-bit video. You generally need to use Git Repositories - mplayer2-build.git for the most up to date version of mplayer2/libass/libav.

    To install from mplayer2-build:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    sudo apt-get build-dep mplayer2  <-(If using Ubuntu 12.04 or newer)
    sudo apt-get build-dep mplayer  <-(If using a version older than Ubuntu 12.04)
    
    git clone git://git.mplayer2.org/mplayer2-build.git
    cd mplayer2-build/
    ./init --shallow
    make -j 6
    Once the build is completed, you can then find the mplayer2 executable at /home/user/mplayer2-build/mplayer/mplayer ...where you can point SMPlayer to. (Options / Preferences / General tab of the General Menu / mplayer executable)

    To update mplayer2 of mplayer2-build:

    Code:
    cd mplayer2-build/
    ./clean  <-(This also deletes the mplayer2 executable.)
    ./update
    make -j 6
    In SMPlayer, I use gl for the video output and pulse for the audio output for best results on my nvidia card.

    I am a little curious as to why mplayer2 is preferred over MPlayer? I have read this page but I am still a little curious .
