Visit packman and get some codecs

pre3 is pretty old now, get a pre7 rpm instead.

they are dependencies... you need to get those pacakges too... nothign else to say really. well, other than installing through yum of apt will resolve these dependencies for you instantly.

i'm a BIG advocate of installing mplayer from source, that way it won't require any extra packages to do things you're not interested in.

how do you install a source?

acid_kewpie 06-13-2005 04:15 PM

hmm.. maybe not then. just get each rpm it asks for.

download the source package from mplayer website. Untar and unzip and inside the directory you'll find INSTALL and README files. Read them and you'll learn what you need to do to compile and install from source...if you hit snags come back here with specific questions.

He just didn't want it to get more complicated. Mplayer is not that easy to compile for a newbie. Just try to get used to installing rpm first, then later on when you find that you need some feature/need to recompile to play some file that you're not able to play with precompiled mplayer, then you'll need to compile it. But for the time being, just install from rpm, enjoy your movie, and then when you got time try learning to compile mplayer. As for the dependencies, the easiest way to install them is by using apt-get. Learn something about it, it's not that complicated. Or just download the rpms for the dependencies at freshrpms.net. :)
