When I use the gui to enable double buffering on mplayer, I get an error the next time I start that says:"Couldn't open/init audio device -> no sound!".
If I go to disable double buffering using the gui, I notice that "enable frame dropping" has also been checked. (not my myself, though.) So one would think that by unchecking all the boxes that I would get sound back, but nope. I have to delete my gui.conf file to get sound back again.
When I hit F for fullscreen, I can't get back to the desktop "skin view" again by hitting F a second time. (It used to, but not anymore) Now the screen switches to a different aspect ratio instead.
Sometimes when viewing movies in fullscreen there is a randomly-placed pixel on the movie screen that stays white. I'm not sure how to reproduce that, but it's not a real dead pixel, because I've tested my screen.
Anyone have ideas on any of this? Are these bugs that I should report? I've heard that the developers of this project are pretty tough on newbies who don't know what they're doing. I'm afraid to email them because I don't want to get what Joe Barr
By the way, I compiled Mplayer from source and didn't have difficulties with gcc being the wrong version or any crap like that.
