This thread is intended for support, discussion and development of the Ubuntu Community Wiki page:

Compiling MPlayer

I would encourage people to not only use this wiki page but also log on and edit + improve the page. I will be stepping back a little from upkeep of the page but perhaps some suggested updates could be:

  1. Make a link from the wiki page to this thread
  2. Add a section on compiling MPlayer2
  3. Add some details for compiling MEncoder
  4. Sort out the live555 mess, it no longer compiles with MPlayer
  5. Add in some useful links

and whatever people feel is necessary. I will be interested to see if greater community involvement in the wiki version of this guide will yield a better MPlayer experience!
