MPlayer


Hi

I have tried to d/l mplayer and I downloaded the following files;

1-mplayer-0.90pre5-2.i686.rpm ( the optimized one for intell PIII)
2-mplayer-0.90pre5-2.i386.rpm ( the usual one)
3-mplayer-font-iso1-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
4-mplayer-font-iso2-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
5-mplayer-font-koi8r-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
6-mplayer-skin-default-1.5-1.noarch.rpm
7-mplayer-vidix-0.90pre5-2.i686.rpm
8-mplayer-vidix-0.90pre5-2.i386.rpm
9-mplayer-vidix-mach64-0.90pre5-2.i686
10-mplayer-vidix-mach64-0.90pre5-2.i386
11-mplayer-vidix-radeon-0.90pre5-2.i686
12-mplayer-vidix-radeon-0.90pre5-2.i386
13-mplayer-vidix-rage128-0.90pre5-2.i686
14-mplayer-vidix-rage128-0.90pre5-2.i386

I have installed the first 6 files, with the exception of the second ( I USED KPACKAGE-- you know I just double click on the file with .rpm and it is installed after I enter the root password)

I then typed on a terminal window mplayer, but I had a long list of options and errors, why?
Also, I could not install files with vidix, it asked for a file called mplayer-vidix-driver, where can I get this file from?
And I was asked, while trying to install the others, to install the following;
1- libhda.so
2- libmp3lame.so.0

I could get these files, but I don't know where to put them!!!?

In general, how may I make my mplayer work as fine as possible?

I use RedHat 7.2 and I have a 700MHz machine with a 256 MB RAM. with a Creative 128 for sound and a 16 MB S3 VGA card.

Ok first off, you don't need to install all of those files, those are all the same file except they are just different format for different setups (well at least the first two for different architecture's). Pick the one that fits your hardware and such and that should take care of it.

Ok,did you actually try to play a file at the terminal? typing mplayer by itself only gives you options you can use with it.Try it out with mplayer filename.filetype (ex. mplayer test.avi)

I had the same problem, and wrote here earlier. Somebody pointed out a good websight ... maybe it was sourceforge.net.... to find those missing library files.
I'll get back to you if i can find that www address

Good Luck

just goto rpmfind.net and search for the missing files. welcome to the land of dependencies. and only use the very firt file, none of the others are needed. you don't need the dha files, so you could force installation after that, but it wouldn't hurt to install them anyway

Thank you for your supprt guys, I am really happy to be here in this forum. I have tried other forums but this one seems to be the best.

Now, what about libhda.so and libmp3lame.so.0 where should I put them? I have them and I want to use them ( as long as I have them!!)

Also, how may I have the GUI of this program (MPlayer) and how may I change skins?

Thank you very much,
with my love,

hhegab

Why don't you install ogle ?

2 rpm later you 'll be able to choose in your dvd's menu....

then you 'll search how to install mplayer from sources.

i think you'll better forget rpm files of mplayer wich aren't support by the developper of mplayer.

mplayer DOES havve official RPMs now, times change....

ogle crashes, but does do dvdnav, but then i think that's a waste of tie anyway

those files.. you don't "put" them anywehere, you get the rpm they are in and install it.

libmp3lame.so: grab a source rpm because the lib you need is in development package http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=lame
lihda? I am puzzled by this I don't even recall installing it and my Mplayer works beautifuly.
Anyway there is a list of deps you need to satisfy in order to install Mplayer http://ftp.falsehope.com/home/rathann/mplayer/
P.S. Compile ti from source in this way you won't miss a thing if there is a lib that needs to be install it'll tell you and just do googling around to get it.
Good luck

Did try it with
-vo x11
or
-vo sdl
?
Sorry for a late reply, yes my Mplayer works just fine what I did
1.Upgraded gcc to 3.x.x version I had to upgrade glibc, glibc-common, gcclibs, etc, when you are duing it with rpm -Uhv command it shows you what are the deps if any that need to be satisfy before the package can be installed cleanly
2.I got the souce bz2ball (tar.bz2), unpacked it with
tar xvfj Mplayer-yada.yada.tar.bz2
changed to the newly created directory Mplayer
cd Mplayer
ran configure script
./configure --help
it gives you the list of options you can specify on the command line, out of curiousity I compiled it with gui
./configure --enable-gui
if everything goes fine issue
make
if there are no errors
change to root with
su
and issue
make install
That's all
