mplayer click one file after another


Is is possible to click one file after another in mplayer, just like windows? While playing a file, I clicked on another one, and I always get the error -vo device error. I have to close the original mplayer before I can choose another one. Even after doing that, I have to reconfigure my -vo device before I can have my sound back.

Please help

Not quite sure what you mean "click"? When I use mplayer, I type:
mplayer -vo xv /path/to/file/filename.avi

Or, after I set my preferences in ~/.mplayer/config with:
vo=xv

Then I just have to type:
mplayer /path/to/file/filename.avi

So if you mean "how do I set the vo device" well then, there ya go

If not, what did you mean?

Cool

I mean while a file is playing, can I just click on another file and have mplayer immediately play that file instead, without having to close mplayer before clicking on a second file. As it is right now, while playing a file, I have to close mplayer before clicking on another file, otherwise, before playing the second file, a video output error will occur. When I press ok, the sounds will be muted, and I will have to reset video out to right driver before sound returns.

click? waddaya mean click? you are using linux, get prepared to use the keyboard.

Na seriously, this sounds like you use the GUI. The mplayer gui is very alpha, drop it. You can also specifiy multiple files by using the console command and even switch between those.

$mplayer a.avi b.avi c.mpg

will start mplayer an plays a.avi. now you can switch with > forward in you're "playlist" and with < you can go backwards.

I forgot to mention that I am, as you said, using GUI. I guess I would have to use console if I want more performance. Thanks for your advice.
