    Thank you very much, Andrew. Yes, I am the happy father of 'the laughing girl' and I appreciate your guidance very much. The HowTo was not only easy to perform, but also explained why each step was necessary. That is great as it becomes a learning tool as well. I cannot thank you enough. Great job, and I'm off to Google more material of yours.

    Hi,

    Good to hear from you again and I am very glad that the walkthrough worked for you:

    I have my own 'laughing girl' as I mentioned before but young Hannah is my first grand-daughter. So when I heard your own girl laughing ...

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

    Nice guide. Btw, is anybody having problems with the latest svn in gutsy?
    It compiles fine, mplayer runs ok, the only problem is with gmplayer. I get this error:

    I tried several options and tried several times, and always the same thing. It isn't only the last one, before it I got the same problem.

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

    Hi,

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble:

    *** glibc detected *** gmplayer: malloc(): memory corruption (fast): .
    I can suggest a few things:

    1. Post all of these details to mplayer-users and see if this is actually an mplayer problem.

    2. While hopefully waiting for an answer from the mplayer users try backtracking to a 'safe' version. Revision 26096 is working fine for me:

    Code:
    $ svn checkout -r 26096  svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
    or perhaps go back a little further?

    3. Have a trawl through: http://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer?view=rev and look for any evidence

    Hopefully the issue will be resolved with a combination of the above 3?

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

    Thanks for the answer. But the problem is still on that revision. I am trying now to rollback serveral revision and to check. However I have a question do you use that revision on gutsy?
    Btw, it seems I am not the only one with this problem:
    http://forum.ubuntu.org.cn/viewtopic...fd2c3b2209a421

    EDIT: Tried several revisions, but the problem persists, I just posted the issue in the mailing list.

    EDIT: after debugging, I found out the problem, it was a skin problem, and after checking several skins, it seems that with some of them it crashes. Well this happened with the skin 'Ater'. The problem was with the pos.png file of the skin, by replacing it with other, the skin works.

    Hi,

    Glad to see that you have found the problem:

    In fact you have caught me out there That is the revision I use on my Slackware partition, my apologies. The version I have on my Hardy Heron partition turns out to be a little older: MPlayer dev-SVN-r25959-4.2.3 and this version does not have the error that you are experiencing.

    Btw, it seems I am not the only one with this problem:
    http://forum.ubuntu.org.cn/viewtopic...fd2c3b2209a421
    Now that is a bit scary! I had no idea that my guide had such a wide audience!

    EDIT: Tried several revisions, but the problem persists, I just posted the issue in the mailing list.
    Yes I saw that and hopefully a suitably skilled person will have a look at the problem. The mplayers-users people as you may know get a little irascible at times and I believe sometimes view the gui mplayer as an inconvenience. BTW when you said that the error generated a report automagically have you used:

    Code:
      --enable-debug=3 \ 
     --enable-crash-debug
    in your compile options? This is something I have meant to use myself but have never really done

    EDIT: after debugging, I found out the problem, it was a skin problem, and after checking several skins, it seems that with some of them it crashes. Well this happened with the skin 'Ater'. The problem was with the pos.png file of the skin, by replacing it with other, the skin works.
    Fascinating. So either a problem with the skins or with mplayer's handling of the skins or both. Did you find a skin that needed no alteration? I will alter the skin I have put in the guide until the svn version addresses the problem.

    All the best,

    Andrew

    Well, at that time I was trying to see if it was a system specific issue, or some library problem. I spent a lot of time compiling several svn until I use the debugger and it was pointing to the file pos.png in particular. So I changed the skin and it worked

    Yes I saw that and hopefully a suitably skilled person will have a look at the problem. The mplayers-users people as you may know get a little irascible at times and I believe sometimes view the gui mplayer as an inconvenience.
    Probably, but somebody already replied in the mailing list

      --enable-debug=3 \ 
     --enable-crash-debug

    No, I didn't use that. The bt and the memory map where geneterated automatically in the output.

    Fascinating. So either a problem with the skins or with mplayer's handling of the skins or both. Did you find a skin that needed no alteration? I will alter the skin I have put in the guide until the svn version addresses the problem.
    The skin in your guide is ok, it doesn't need to be changed. The skins affected that I know are: Ater, Terminator3 and Bluecurve. With each one, it crashes differently. For instance, for the skin Ater, the crash its caused because of pos.png (I think some transparencies problem) For the other, maybe the same file, however I didn't check.

    Again, nice guide, I hope you keep maintaining it, unlike the other mplayer guides that are too old... And thanks for your help.

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

    Great thread Andrew!!

    I finally have mplayer up and running, but I would like to tackle another part of this player.

    I would like to be able to watch TV via mplayer. I have a card that works via drivers from v4l-dvb, and the card works with TVviewer, but this program only works with analog, and I would like to view digital streams. Looking at the mplayer page, it states that I need to create a channel file, but I am completely clueless on how to do this.

    Does anyone use mplayer to watch TV? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi,

    Woooooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

    Can someone congratulate me? I have managed to write a patch that has been included in the svn mplayer source code!!!!!!!!!

    It actually really only has relevance to my other distro but I am incredibly excited to see my work in such a great program.

    Woooooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

    I don't have a TV tuner, but have you tried using the -tvscan autostart switch from the command line. It should output a list of values to be used with -tv channels=. You may also want to try -tv chanlist=.

    Then, to watch TV, use mplayer tv://<channel num>
