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

    Thank you for your answer SeijiSensei.

    My mplayer/mencoder version, from motumedia ppa (now outdated) is 2:1.0 SVN 34707.

    Never had a problem, but I'm trying to make a back-up of a Blu-ray (VC-1 format) and I'm trying to apply some light filtering with mencoder and 'frameserve' it to x264.
    With this Blu-ray, playback in VLC is O.K. but in mplayer and mencoder it shows strange artefacts.

    To my knowledge this may be solved with a more recent version.
    That's the reason I would like to update mplayer without having to update/re-install my hole system.

    From what I understand, mencoder has pretty much been deprecated in favor of ffmpeg for most conversion tasks. Mencoder was originally designed to encode into AVI; we're a long way past that now. Mencoder is no longer included with the source code in the mplayer2 fork; those guys just gave up on it.

    Maybe you should see if ffmpeg is a better long-term solution for you.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Probably there was something broken in previous SVN version. Today I managed to successfully update mplayer/mencoder to SVN-r36970-4.6.

    Sadly this did not solve my problem. Will try with ffmpeg.

    Thank you for your help

    I have to admit that I have let this guide slumber for quite some time and there is still a decent chance I may not develop it any longer. I still believe that running the svn MPlayer is the best possible way to get great media playback and continue to update every couple of days but in previous times I spread myself a little too far and I have pulled back a little...

    Is this related to an old Ubuntu version?. Can I solve it?
    No this is related to a mistake made by one of the MPlayer developers and has been corrected in r36963 . So just run svn up and resompile, all should be well.
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

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

    Hello!
    Thanks for this tutorial.
    I have a problema when trying to compile mplayer:

    Checking for GTK+ version ... GTK+ 2 devel packages were not found, trying GTK+ 1.2
    Checking for GTK+ version ...
    Error: The GUI requires GTK+ devel packages (which were not found).

    Check "config.log" if you do not understand why it failed.

    Apparently i need gtk+2 dev , but i cannot find anywhere in repository, im on Linux mint 17 qiana kde 64 bits.

    Unfortunately the official repository installer generates errors when you install mplayer skins, its a well know error but was not yet resolved.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1218510

    So, this force me to have to compile from source mplayer to work correctly.

    ¿can you please help me?

    Did you run "sudo apt-get update" before running "sudo apt-get install"?

    The bug report does contain some workarounds though in the end a newer mplayer will serve you better. The odds of that bug being fixed are slim to none as I *believe* Debian is dropping mplayer altogether
