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

    Hi again!

    I have finally found the solution to this problem:

    Quote Originally Posted by mangurt View Post

    What I am trying to do is open an file via right click, and then open with mplayer. No matter what file I try to open, I get this error.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    It turns out to be a problem with the desktop settings for Gmplayer in combination with spaces in filenames. To resolve:

    ======================================
    To Resolve "Cannot open file error" with Gmplayer
    =====================================

    There is a problem with Gmplayer at the moment that prevents it from playing movie files directly from Nautilus or from right click on the file itself. This occurs if there is a space in the filename or the path to the filename. There is an easy solution:

    Press Alt-F2 and then:

    Code:
    $ gksudo gedit /usr/local/share/applications/mplayer.desktop
    You will see a line that says:
    Code:
    Exec=gmplayer %U
    Change this to:

    Code:
    Exec=gmplayer %F
    or perhaps more correctly:

    Code:
    Exec=gmplayer
    Save the changes and exit. All should be well now

    ================================

    Please tell me if this resolves the issue for you,

    Andrew

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

    Hi,

    For those who are interested I include the method for enabling dvd menus in the svn mplayer. This is not appearing in the main 'Howto' as the implementation of libdvdnav in mplayer is still in its very early stages and I am a little wary of offering support for such early beta efforts. Nevertheless the following works quite well on my system:

    ==================================
    Emabling DVD Navigation in the svn Mplayer
    ==================================

    1. Download and install libdvdread and libdvdcss

    2.Download the svn libdvdnav source:

    Code:
    $ svn co svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/dvdnav/trunk/libdvdnav libdvdnav
    and compile / install it:

    Code:
    $ cd libdvdnav
    $ ./autogen.sh
    $ ./configure
    $ make
    $ make install
    3. Add the following option when compiling the svn mplayer:

    Code:
    $ ./configure --disable-dvdread-internal
    and compile as usual.

    4. Add the following to ~/.mplayer/config:

    Code:
    mouse-movements=yes
    5. Use the following to see the navigation menu for the movie:

    Code:
    $ mplayer dvdnav://
    6. Navigation can be from the mouse or with the num pad keys:

    (The following keys are only valid if you compiled with dvdnav
    support: They are used to navigate the menus.)

    keypad 8 Select button up.
    keypad 2 Select button down.
    keypad 4 Select button left.
    keypad 6 Select button right.
    keypad 5 Return to main menu.
    keypad 7 Return to nearest menu (the order of preference is: chapter->title->root).
    keypad ENTER Confirm choice.
    And there you have it. When and if libdvdnav is better integrated with mplayer I will add it to the main 'Howto' section.

    Hi,

    I am afraid that I cannot help you with this:

    as I have absolutely no knowledge or experience of this. Anybody here who can help out?

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

    Hi,
    Again I publish a little 'add-on' to my 'Howto' this tims a few lines that describe how to add amr widwband and narrow band support for mplayer.

    ===============================================
    'Howto' add amr support to your svn mplayer
    ===============================================

    This mini 'howto' describes the method to add amr support to your svn mplayer installation and is written especially for the father of 'the laughing girl'.

    1. amr narrow band:

    Code:
     
    $ cd $HOME/Desktop
    $ wget http://ftp.penguin.cz/pub/users/utx/amr/amrnb-7.0.0.0.tar.bz2
    $ tar xjvf amrnb-7.0.0.0.tar.bz2
    $ cd amrnb-7.0.0.0
    $ wget http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/Specs/archive/26_series/26.104/26104-700.zip
    $ ./configure  --enable-shared --disable-static
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
    2. amr wide band:

    Code:
    $ cd $HOME/Desktop
    $ wget http://ftp.penguin.cz/pub/users/utx/amr/amrwb-7.0.0.2.tar.bz2
    $ tar xjvf amrwb-7.0.0.2.tar.bz2
    $ cd amrwb-7.0.0.2
    $ wget http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/Specs/archive/26_series/26.204/26204-700.zip
    $ ./configure  --enable-shared --disable-static
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
    With both installed you now need to recompile the svn mplayer source code. Mplayer will automatically pick up the amr libraries and allow their use in Mplayer. Don't forget to run:

    Code:
    $ sudo make clean
    before recompiling. And all the best to the father of 'the laughing girl'!!

    Andrew

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

    hey, andrew, great work! im very thankful!

    just tried your how-to to add the amr support, but got this error:

    gmplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libamrnb.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    in the ./configure process, both amr were finded, and the file is ther at /usr/lib

    any thoughts??

    thanks!

    Hi,

    Glad you liked the work!

    If the file is there but cannot be accessed you probably do not have a "shared library" installation, just make sure that you ran:

    Code:
    $ ./configure  --enable-shared --disable-static
    for both files. Can you run through the amr bit again ensuring this is the case? Possibly you caught a very early post of mine which omitted these directions, if so my apologies

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

    Yes, ive compiled just the way you described..

    I added the --prefix=usr as described in this [URL="http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=491885"]thread[/URL ] and now it works! strange...

    but im having other trouble here. ive been using your guide to compile the svn, and were able to play some rmvb files pretty well, but recently i did a fresh install of ubuntu on my PC, compiled mplayer again and im getting this error when i try to play the same rmvb files:

    Opening video decoder: [realvid] RealVideo decoder
    Error: /usr/local/lib/codecs/drvc.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32

    i cant figure out... all codecs are there, i even tried to download the realplayer ones from the codecs directory, but still getting nothing.

    any clues?

    thanks a lot.

    Hi,

    Glad to hear that the amr codecs eventually worked out:

    Does not sound quite right but if it works .....

    but im having other trouble here. ive been using your guide to compile the svn, and were able to play some rmvb files pretty well, but recently i did a fresh install of ubuntu on my PC, compiled mplayer again and im getting this error when i try to play the same rmvb files:

    Multiple codec errors. Hmmmm..... I have not seen this type of file before, do you have a copy that you could post online somewhere? I would be curious to see if my own copy of mplayer could play it.

    Do you definitely have the full codec pack? The ones at:
