mplayer issues/translating docs


i've been fiddling with the install of mplayer for a few days and haven't been able to get things to work out quite right. i was reading the docs (specifically http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/codecs.html) and decided to try to install the DivX4/5 stuff listed in it.

i followed the first instruction, which was to get the codec from divx.com and then install it. the second instruction, however, has left me feeling downright retarded:

"Get the CVS version of the OLD OpenDivx core library like this:

1. cvs -d: pserver:anonymous@cvs.projectmayo.com:/cvsroot login

2. cvs -d: pserver:anonymous@cvs.projectmayo.com:/cvsroot co divxcore"

when i get the cvs pwd prompt, what should i do? it seems to not do anything in response to my keyboard strokes.

if i just leave this partially setup install of DivX4, it sullies the compilation of mplayer, as make yields:

"...
ve_divx4.c:275: structure has no member named `total_bits'
ve_divx4.c:276: structure has no member named `quantizer'
ve_divx4.c:279: structure has no member named `is_key_frame'
make[1]: *** [ve_divx4.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/MPlayer-0.90/libmpcodecs'
make: *** [libmpcodecs/libmpcodecs.a] Error 2"

and now i can't even get the player to compile and THEN not work. gd it.

any suggestions on how to finish the install of DivX4 or remove the files installed by the codec are welcome.

i really really wouldn't bother with divx4. Mplayer can use three different divx implementations, libavcodec, xvid and divx4. THis is in order of preference too... divx4 itself isn't too hot, and not nearly as optimized by a long long way. In case that's not clear... all three ARE divx... and libavcodec (FFMpeg) is included with the default official mplayer releases, so you won' need to do anythign else.

removing divx4 codec?

thx for the advice acid, but how do i get rid of the divx4 codec that i installed via ./install.sh? it seems to make for all sorts of problems w/ the compilation of mplayer. i have the same problem as before: issuing "# make" from the source directory gives me errors (i think that mplayer autodetects the divx4 codec and gets agitated w/out the proper add'l files) ----V

...
ve_divx4.c:192: request for member `quality' in something not a structure or union

never had to myself, but afaik, divx will create divxencore.so and divxdecore.so so just remove those files. wouldn't know what headers divx4 might have also put on your system that mplayer might be autodetecting though, but you can always verbosely disable it's use with "./configure --disable-divx4" or similar (./configure --help foir the correct option)
