Installing Mplayer....


I'm using Slackware 9.1, and I have no clue where to start to install Mplayer. I've read mplayers readme on how to install, and it lost me. Can someone put it into simple terms for me

./configure
make
su -c "make install"

i don't see where your getting tripped up at ?
if you want a gui then type :
./configure --enable-gui
instead of what i said above ...

maybe be more specific with what your having the problem with ... if the above is not your problem ...

DrOzz, are you insane?

If you want little codec support then DrOzz is right. Otherwise you'll also need to dl a few codec packs to really cover your bases, and that doesn't even include the gui or OSD or fonts! Unfortunately there's a small prob. In order to help you I'd end up re-writing the readme's and docs at http://www.mplayerhq.hu. If you really want to get the most out of MPlayer you're going to have to get kneedeep in it. Get the readme, print it if that helps. Mark the lines that are actually STEPS and start at 1. If you have questions on a STEP, then THAT is within the forums realm imo. But to lay out the howto when there IS one is alot to ask..

MPlayer is a MESS to install the 1st few times. there is ZERO effort towards that angle, but you get ALL effort towards making it rock. The quicker you understand the process, the more independant you'll become.

well sebboh i am not insanse i'll advise you ..
he made the general question of asking how do you install mplayer .. so i told him ..
i am quite aware you need codecs, and it isn't a tough task for him to extract them to /usr/local/lib/codecs, or wherever ...

that is why i stated :

maybe be more specific with what your having the problem with ... if the above is not your problem ...

cause his question was rather general, in turn thats why my answer was ..
