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

    Hi,

    Sounds like you have the idea:

    Quote Originally Posted by lordViN View Post

    so probably if I'm right the order for updating is:

    Code:
    $ sudo make uninstall
    $ svn update
    $ make clean
    $ ./configure \
    --prefix=/usr/local \
    --enable-largefiles \
    --enable-gui \
    --codecsdir=/usr/local/lib/codecs
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
    I'm right?
    I would tend to run make clean at the very beginning but it really makes no difference

    A small secret of this walkthrough is that 2 of the ./configure options are not absolutely necessary: --prefix=/usr/local and --codecsdir=/usr/local/lib/codecs. I have included these to minimise potential problems of installation and to demonstrate how easily such things can be altered.

    The default installation directory is /usr/local so this does not really have to be specified, but if you select a different location this is the line to be altered.

    The ./configure process will find the codecs directory without it necessarily being specified in the manner that I have in the walkthrough but it is so important that mplayer find the codecs that I put this line in to be totally sure.

    So in reality you could as easily run as follows:

    Code:
    $ sudo make clean
    $ sudo make uninstall
    $ svn update
    $ ./configure --enable-largefiles --enable-gui 
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
    with the same end result.

    I trust you are having a great time with this amazing program!

    Hi, I'm a complete newbie in MPlayer. I tried to play an audio file and I heard nothing. I looked at the terminal and this came out:

    Hi,

    Not such a noob that couldn't fix your own problem

    In fact as you found mplayer couldn't find esd sound driver. You can specify the successful sound device in your ~/.mplayer/config file which will make it the default rather than specifying it on the command line each time.

    All the best!

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

    Hi,

    I am not sure if people are interested in mplayer beyond its ability to read multiple audio and video formats? I have done a little work with some of its other features:

    http://people.aapt.net.au/~adjlstrong/ftgws.html
    http://people.aapt.net.au/~adjlstrong/iRiverX20.html

    I would love to hear what uses others are putting the svn mplayer to. It is a lot of work to put the program together in this way, is the program working for you now?

    Andrew

    PS The ftgws.html page contains a Slackware version of this walkthrough, the more interesting material is after this

    on the

    you could do a

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

    Nice how to. I have compiled Mplayer rc2 SVN as stated in the howto and everything went fine. ( Yay!) Everything works as it should except that when playing files with blank spaces in the filename it lets out an error saying it can not play the file because it can not be found. If you rename the file removing the blank spaces it plays fine. The same thing happens if the file is located in a directory with blank spaces even if the filename is without blank spaces. This behavior should not be happening but it is. My System specs are Celeron 2.0 Ghz, 256MB RAM, Geforce FX5200, using Xubuntu Gutsy with Compiz-Fusion. Anybody having the same problem?

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

    So, if we wanted to use CoreAVC with coreavc-for-linux (does v1.6 work?) instead of libavcodec, and following thse instructions: http://code.google.com/p/coreavc-for...erInstallation , would we follow this sequence after having downloaded the mplayer source code, and downloaded, compiled and installed x264:

    Code:
    $ svn checkout http://coreavc-for-linux.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ coreavc-for-linux 
    $ cd coreavc-for-linux
    $ ./mplayer/build_patch.pl $HOME/Desktop/mplayer > mplayerfull.patch
    $ cd $HOME/Desktop/mplayer
    $ patch -p0 < $HOME/Desktop/mplayer/mplayerfull.patch
    directly before doing
    Code:
    $ ./configure \
    --prefix=/usr/local \
    --enable-largefiles \
    --enable-gui \
    --codecsdir=/usr/local/lib/codecs
    $ make 
    $ sudo make install
    $ cp loader/registercodec /usr/local/bin/
    and then update codecs.conf ?

    Hi,

    Glad my guide has helped you:

    This behaviour is quite normal for Linux, space in filenames and directories is something to be avoided at all costs unless you want to write and elaborate series of escapes for every file and directory you have. Some of the gui tools shield you from this which shows one of the many drawbacks of gui tools.

    Try quotation marks around filnames with spaces: "filename wirh spaces.txt" for example.
