Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn mplayer + gmplayer + all the codecs.
Thanks for your message:
The good news is that only part of the process needs to be repeated. If you change to the directory that holds the source code and issue the command:

Just keep a record of the revision number as sometimes a revision will break mplayer. If this is the case the following syntax will return the successful version:
where <revision> represents the "safe" version (without the angle brackets).
svn checkout -r <revision> svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
The svn mplayer imports the most recent ffmpeg build. If you watch the svn process you will see this happening, watch for 'importing into livavcodec' etc
Does this process also give us the newest ffmpeg build? Sorry if that's an obvious question.
The 2007 codec pack requires nothing more that to placed in the appropriate directory and sourced by mplayer. However my knowledge of Directshow codecs is simply that mplayer uses them successfully
I've just come over from Windows, and I know a bit about setting up Directshow codecs, been using ffdshow-tryouts for most uses for the past 2 years, obviously that's based on ffmpeg (usually the latest SVN).
I wish you all the best with the svn mplayer. Subversion itself has a wealth of options that are well worth exploring if you have an interest.
You think that's air you're breathing now?
