Posted 04-18-2013 at 12:07 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 04-18-2013 at 09:44 PM by the dsc

I'm not suggesting it's really preferable in any situation or in any specific situation, I just found myself in a "what the hell" point and thought it worth a try, and it worked.

I was just thinking that it would be nice that for slideshow videos there was a variable frame rate, and turns out that it exist. I've found that the program handbrake can handle that easily, so I decided to install. Unfortunatelly it's only on Debians unnofficial multimedia repository, which can...

Rant: what was wrong/"bad" with mplayer-gui/gmplayer?

Posted 09-03-2012 at 10:41 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I don't get it. It wasn't like it inspired someone to say that it's the GUI that one ever dreamed about, but was fully functional, and funnily enough more reliable than all the alternative GUIs that used mplayer as a back-end, as far as I've looked at. I guess the decision eventually resulted in a (current to me at least) problem with subtitles/fontconfig, as subtitles will work on mplayer and mplayer2, but not on gmplayer, even though it never used to be that way before.

More notes on HD video playback in Linux: vlc code++, mplayer speed++

Posted 04-26-2011 at 10:16 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

To mention entire list of updates:
Old system: Linux 2.6.34.8 x86_64 [amd64], nvidia-drivers 260.19.29, libx264 0.0.20101029(portage), mplayer 1.0_rc4_p20100612(--version gives SVN-r30554-4.4.3), vlc 1.1.4.
New system: Linux 2.6.38.4 x86_64 [amd64], nvidia-drivers 260.19.36, libx264 0.0.20110223(portage), mplayer...

mplayer vs vlc

Posted 10-10-2010 at 01:52 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Tags dvd, mplayer, vlc

I've been a VLC media player user for a long time. But some funny thing happened when I upgraded my gentoo and VLC started lagging extremely hard. I tried everything: from downgrading codec libraries to removing ~/.vlc : nothing helped. The problem was when I was trying to watch DVDs and some avi files, it shown "buffering" on every frame, and, of course, I had a hang of few seconds every time. I've decided to try mplayer, as many people told me it's teh best.
