    Re: [Howto] Successfully install the svn MPlayer under Hardy Heron

    Thanks for the prompt response.
    When i open the video file in mplayer (by right-clicking on the file and then selecting "play with mplayer", i get an error:
    Error opening/initialising video_out (-vo) device

    But when I used the command you gave,
    mplayer -v file.avi
    it played properly.

    So how to get fix the problem?

    I wonder if you have several copies of MPlayer on your system? The option on right click should have been 'Open with..... SMPlayer', as the attached screenshot demonstrates. Can I ask which copy of MPlayer you are using? Perhaps try the following command which will demonstrate if there is more than one:

    Code:
    sudo find /usr -iname 'mplayer'
    All the best,

    Andrew

    sorry for the delay in reply. I am still out on a vacation. I will post back when I get to "my" system.

    The result of the command is as follows:
    /usr/share/menu/mplayer
    /usr/share/doc/mplayer
    /usr/share/mplayer
    /usr/bin/mplayer
    /usr/lib/mime/packages/mplayer


    When I right-click, I get:
    Enqueue in SMplayer
    Mplayer media player
    SMplayer
    VLC

    I just noticed that I don't get any errors if I use SMplayer.

    Looks like the problem is with the default gui for MPlayer which is gmplayer. I would suggest you avoid gmplayer as it has not been developed for a while and debate continues amongst the developers about whether it should be abandoned or not. And if SMPlayer is playing your files well enough I suspect the problem is solved?

    I will admit that I am getting a little lost though, is this the repository MPlayer from Karmic that you have installed?

    All the best,

    Andrew

    This is the problem really. I am not exactly sure what I did to get mplayer working.. Basically, I did not know that non-gui mplayer came along with Karmic. I installed mplayer first from Ubuntu Software Centre. Then I ran the command apt-get install mplayer. It would be better if I first remove mplayer completely and then use this:
    Howto: Utilise the svn MPlayer to Improve Karmic Koala's 'mplayer-nogui' Package
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1305181

    How should I completely remove mplayer from my system?
