    Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.

    Hello all! I am having some serious problems with mPlayer and streaming all internet radio stations!!! First and foremost I am running Gutsy. I followed the installation instructions to the 'T" on the first page of this post and my first wall that I hit is when I do ./configure I receive the following

    ./configure

    Error: Cannot find header either inttypes.h or bitypes.h. There is no chance for compilation to succeed.

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

    I checked the configure.log and I am not familiar enough with the Linux language yet to fully understand what the issue is. So what I did (out of frustration) I ignored the error message above and continued on with the installation. I can get MPlayer to open both from Applications and from Terminal, the skin works and all. Now I have the MediaConnectivity plug-in installed for Firefox and it is setup to have gmplayer be the player for all file types. When I click what should be an internet radio station, lets take NPR for example I receive the following error:

    Failed to open icy-url:http://www.shoutcast.com. When trying to open a sirius channel, MPlayer opens and I receive a similar error. I installed all of the codecs per the instructions on page 1.

    Prior to this installation attempt I installed MPLayer from Synaptic and I was still unable to play any internet radio streams, all other forms of sound work, videos, CD's systems sounds, etc. Except for streaming video and radio. I am wondering if the issue I am having getting streaming media to work is related to the same issue I am having with Sipie. If anyone isnt familiar with Sipie (ignore the last sentence) Sipie works perfectly except for sound!! This all is very frustrating!! To the point that I am considering re-imaging my laptop and I really don't want to!! Anyone that could possibly help it would be greatly appreciated!!!


    Thank You,

    Paul

    EDIT
    I ran mplayer from terminal using the command mplayer (stream location) and this worked. When I ran the command gmplayer (stream location) I still receive the errors stated above. So I guess this can be a temporary stopgap but any insight would be appreciated on the issues I am having.

    Hi Paul,

    Sorry to hear you are having such trouble:

    You might be best to uninstall mplayer by changing to the source directory and issuing this command:

    Code:
    $ sudo make uninstall
    $ make clean
    My only thought is that perhaps there is an AMD 64 problem. The faqs speak of this:

    http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/faq.html#id2552970

    But I am afraid that my experience with the AMD 64 chip and compiling mplayer is zero You could try the directions on the faqs but I am not in a position to test them myself to guarantee their effectiveness or suitability for your particular AMD chip.

    An alternative is to post on the Mplayer Users list:

    http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/mailman/li.../mplayer-users

    Be aware some of the users can be a little terse but the information gained there is almost always worthwhile.

    Sorry I cannot be much more help than this!

    Everything works fine but this. It does not seem to install a plugin that firefox sees at all. Can you advise?

    The latest version 3.4.5 works well for me.

    I'm going to assume you have already successfully built mplayer.
    First, we need to grab the source.
    Code:
    wget http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/mplayerplug-in/mplayerplug-in-3.45.tar.gz
    tar -xzvf mplayerplug-in-3.45.tar.gz
    cd mplayerplug-in
    Also, we need the firefox development files
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install firefox-dev libnss-dev libnspr-dev
    Now, we can build the plugin.
    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    make install will install the plugin to your firefox profile directory, usually ~/.mozilla/plugins. If you wish to make them globally available, use sudo make install instead.

    Hi,

    Glad that you have successfully installed the svn mplayer:

    but unfortunately I have no experience with this plugin and in fact I have never installed it. Your quote is from someone else I suspect who has volunteered this information?

    Hey,
    i'm getting this error a few seconds after "make";

    Should i just wait for some mplayer svn updates?

    Hi,
    I get the same error

    Edit:

    It works now I guess the mplayer-guys fixed the bug.
    Update your source folder and make again.
    Code:
    cd mplayer
    svn update
    make
    sudo make install
    Or use sudo checkinstall to build a .deb package. Go to synaptic and lock the version, and then you can install the mozilla plugin from the repos.

    Hi,

    Wooo hooo!!! Almost 10,000 views of this walkthrough!! I am hoping for an Ubuntu T-shirt or a coffee mug when it hits the big 10,000

    Hopefully a lot of people have just sailed through it with great success, I know there have been some with problems; it is a difficult bit of software to compile from source.

    Hi,

    Glad it sorted itself out:

    I thought for some time about using checkinstall in this walkthrough, particularly when I saw that the mozilla plugin wanted to drag in the repository mplayer with it.

    But checkinstall introduced a few potential problems with it that I was not keen to troubleshoot. I reasoned eventually that anybody cluey enough to run through a walkthrough that involved svn and compiling from source could make their own way with checkinstall

    But perhaps if anyone writes a similar guide for Hardy Heron checkinstall might feature as it ties mplayer back into the Ubuntu package management system.
