how do you create a playlist for mplayer


I already installed mplayer and am happy with the non-gui interference. I already installed the mplayer and after a while of usage I found out there is a gui for it . How may I create a playlist for mplayer? Is their a gui that does that? and If I edit a playlist while mplayer is playing via external editor will it give any effect to mplayer?

Run the command..

Code:
gmplayer
This will start up the gui of mplayer.

Right click the interface and click on playlist.

Have fun .

I never installed that part of it. I got the source, how may I just compile and install gmplayer?

Well you want mplayer installed with gmplayer because gmplayer is mplayer, but with just the added gui.

I installed the MPlayer v1.0pre7try2 source at the official site and did the following...

Code:
tar jxvf MPlayer-1.0pre7try2.tar.bz2
cd MPlayer-1.0pre7try2
./configure --enable-gui
make
su
make install
You can then use the following commands to activate the mplayer gui...

Code:
mplayer -gui

or 

gmplayer
If you're running slackware, there is a tgz package here.
