Mplayer 1.0pre3


OK, I tried to install it and got conflicts and needed
libdivxdecore.so.0
libdivxencore.so.0
libtheora.so.0
libxvidcore.so.4

I DL'd the RPM packages through http://packman.links2linux.org/ but still have an issue when I try to install libtheora.so.0 but it says I need libogg. So I tried to install the libogg and it says I have program conflicts......

Is there anyway I can get this new mplayer update and be able to install libtheora? So, I tried to DL libogg AND libogg-devel and both gave me the same conflicts. Should I delete the conflicts? Here they are:

kdebase3-devel
kdesdk3-devel
libogg-devel
kdenetwork3-devel
kconfigure
kdemultimedia3-devel
kdelibs3-devel
kdegraphics3-devel
kdevelop3
libvorbis-devel

Now, if I already have libogg-devel....why won't it let me DL libtheora? Or should I just ignore this whole Mplayer1.0pre3 and wait for the stable 1.0?

In a root terminal do "ldconfig" and try it again. That updates your libraries.

You have to run ldconfig as root. If you get fed up with RPMs, try using the source http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs...a/mplayer.html

mplayer issues on RH AS3

Hi All

Sorry to jump in on this thread but I have to start somewhere.

I have dwnloaded and installed the following rpms

mplayer-common-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm
mplayer-gui-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm
mencoder-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm
mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm
mplayer-codecs-extralite-1.0-1.i386.rpm
lame-3.93.1-fr2.i386.rpm

mplayer starts OK but whenever I play a dvd I am told the following :

error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device

at the console I see

Playing /mnt/cdrom/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.VOB.
Cache fill: 4.37% (366592 bytes) MPEG-PS file format detected.
MPEG: No audio stream found -> no sound.
VIDEO: MPEG2 720x576 (aspect 2) 25.000 fps 6000.0 kbps (750.0 kbyte/s)
It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support and read DOCS/HTML/en/devices.html#xv!
See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11

xvinfo tells me

X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
no adaptors present

I am new to dvd and multimedia on linux and have no real idea what is going wrong any clues would be greatly appreciated

Check your ./mplayer directory in your /home and see if the config file has an entry "vo_driver=X11". If it doesn't put it in and if it's something else change it.

I just went back and reread your OP,oicdn, and it struck me that you may be in "RPM HELL". It's the very thing that made all the time learning Slack well worth it. Did you try to bail out with "rpm -Uvh --nodeps *.rpm" It's like a big hammer,it'll make it or break it.

Hi

I installed the rpms using rpm -Uvh (definitely did not use the --nodeps) and it all seemed to install OK.

didn't try that...LOL like I said, I'm learning the code thing as time goes, but I don't install through code, etc. I use teh GUI and read the text commands etc it gives to get an understanding, so I "customize" through script.....

So, just using reasoning here, LOL, using that rpm -uvh --nodeps installs it without installing dependancies? Or am I COMPLETLY wrong here, LOL.

you're right about --nodeps.. so it's not somethign to use lightly. you should just need to set a suitable video output, as in your output above it's trying to use vidix, which is not what you want, try xv, and if that doesn't work, x11.

just try it from a console:

mplayer dvd://1 -vo xv
