    Wmv9 on AMD64

    Playing back wmv9 files on AMD64 is tricky. On i386 you can use mplayer with the win32 codecs, or the experimental vc-1 codec. However, using AMD64, things get a bit more difficult. It is possible to use the 32bit mplayer package, but it requires that all the libraries that it depends on are also 32bit. Thats why I made a package for you!

    Here is what you do:

    1. Install all ia32-libs packages apt-get.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32asound2 lib32ncurses5 ia32-libs-sdl ia32-libs-gtk lib32stdc++6 ia32-libs-openoffice.org
    2. Download the package from:
    DAPPER: http://folk.ntnu.no/grannas/debs/mpl...e7-1_amd64.deb
    EDGY: http://folk.ntnu.no/grannas/debs/mpl...30-1_amd64.deb
    3. Install the package:
    DAPPER:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i mplayer32_1.0pre7-1_amd64.deb
    EDGY:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i mplayer32_20070130-1_amd64.deb
    4. Fetch the Win32 codecs from: http://www.people.virginia.edu/~drf8...060501.tar.bz2
    5. Unpack it and install to /usr/lib/win32.
    Code:
    tar -jxvf essential-20060501.tar.bz2
    sudo mkdir /usr/lib/win32
    sudo cp essential-20060501/* /usr/lib/win32/
    Use mplayer32 to play wmv9 files (but it can also be used for other files as well )

    If you want a 32 bit mencoder as well, you can download it from here:
    http://www.stud.ntnu.no/~grannas/debs/mencoder32 and put
    it into /usr/bin/ .

    If there is enough people requesting it, I will make a package out of it.

    If you want to use the gmplayer gui, rather than the command-line do the following:
    Code:
    sudo rm /usr/bin/gmplayer
    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/mplayer32 /usr/bin/gmplayer
    This operation has to be done manually as the gmplayer file is "owned" by the original mplayer package.


    Edit: Added more IA32 packages.
    Edit 2: Added download for mencoder32
    Edit 3: Added info on the GUI

    Re: Wmv9 on AMD64

    This is just what I was looking for...but there are more packages required for this to work. The following additional packages were required on my system:

    lib32asound2
    lib32ncurses5
    ia32-libs-sdl

    I am assuming you want libdvdcss. I don't want to distribute it, but someone else does. This is what you do:
    Code:
    wget http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/deb/libdvdcss2_1.2.5-1_i386.deb
    dpkg -x libdvdcss2_1.2.5-1_i386.deb .
    sudo mv usr/lib/libdvdcss.so.2* /usr/lib32/
    Unfortunately, I can't test this right now, because my DVD drive is broken,
    but you might?

    Re: Wmv9 on AMD64

    If you want gmplayer as graphical frontend, you can do the following after following the first post:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install mplayer
    sudo cp /usr/bin/mplayer /usr/bin/mplayer64
    sudo cp /usr/bin/mplayer32 /usr/bin/mplayer
    Is it possible to use the mplayer32 from this guide with a plugin in the www.getfirefox.com firefox version?

    Actually, if you look at it, gmplayer is just a symbolic link to mplayer.
    If you want gmplayer to use mplayer32 instead of mplayer (64 bit version), a better way would be to do something like this:

    Code:
    sudo rm /usr/bin/gmplayer
    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/mplayer32 /usr/bin/gmplayer

    I see. But why does launching mplayer through this symbolic link have a different effect (the added gui) than launching it directly?
