    Never mind! It worked out of the box!

    sudo apt-get install gnome-mplayer
    ./configure
    make
    checkinstall

    Can watch the Apple trailers again:

    Hi Andrew.46 ,

    I followed your guide and installed the latest smplayer from the developer's repository. Mplayer (SVN-r29770-4.3.3) works okay stand alone. But smplayer (0.6.8 (SVN r3213)) won't play any file and gave an error of "MPlayer was compiled without fontconfig support". Any idea what went wrong?

    Edits: I unchecked the "freetype support" under the "subtitle" tab and smplayer now works ok.

    For quite some time it was my intention to no longer create these MPlayer guides following Jaunty Jackalope in particular since the repository MPlayer has improved dramatically under Karmic. However I have produced a slightly altered guide for the svn MPlayer under Karmic and there is a version on these forums at the moment that is for testing purposes:

    Can a few people test a Karmic installation guide for the svn MPlayer?

    It would be great if you could test it . A few differences in the aim of this guide...

    That thread has been closed, as have all the Karmic testing threads. But I have submitted the guide to 'Tutorials & Tips' where hopefully it will pop up shortly after moderation.

    Still waiting for the guide to appear. These guides have to be submitted for moderation and this all depends on how busy the moderators are, but hopefully soon .

    I have actually removed the vdpau info from the guide as I am not qualified to write about vdpau in any authoritative fashion. But it should be a simple matter of adding the required NVidia drivers +/- vdpau package and then MPlayer should automagically pick up the files and allow -vo vdpau.
