mplayer help!!!


I've followed the directions and installed these packages:

Install them like this (one line):
rpm -ivh mplayer-common-<version>.i386.rpm mplayer-<version>.i386.rpm mplayer-font-iso1-1.0-2.noarch.rpm

Install them like this (one line):
rpm -ivh mplayer-vidix-<version>.i386.rpm mplayer-vidix-<driver>-<version>.i386.rpm

the mplayer-gui-<package>, as well as the w32codec<package>

Using GNU internationalization Original domain: messages Original dirname: /usr/share/locale Current domain: mplayer Current dirname: /usr/share/locale MPlayer 0.90rc2-RPM-3.1 (C) 2000-2002 Arpad Gereoffy (see DOCS) CPU: Advanced Micro Devices Athlon TB Thunderbird (Family: 6, Stepping: 2) CPUflags: MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 1 3DNow2: 1 SSE: 0 SSE2: 0 Compiled with RUNTIME CPU Detection - warning, it's not optimal!

looks like you're only running mplayer which is the console player where you need to specify a file to play..

the other is the gui interface which is gmplayer.

Where's the question?

Those are normal readings...

mplayer -vo help
To figure out an output device THEN:
mplayer -vo xv filename
To play a video.

But I really don't see a question...

Cool

Oh sorry. I saw a "warning to recompile MPlayer with runtime disable..." and "...no such directory or file ..." I thought I could open it up and like in xine, open a file to play. Newbie here. I'm a little confused as how to get this to work? Thanks.

If you want to compile it from source you can reinstall it and compile with enable runtime cpu detection, although I don't know what this does, this appears to be the error message anytime something is playing too slow.

As for the others, it is simply looking for config files, and codecs and so on, starting in one directory and working out. It does find them, you see that with:
Reading /etc/mplayer/codecs.conf: 49 audio & 125 video codecs

Anyway, yeah, to play a video try:
mplayer -vo xv /path/to/video/video

Cool

MasterC, fyi mplayer searches through optimal video outputs now afaik, (see how many acronums i can fit in ) so i don't think you need to specify the video output in most circumstances now.

Edit your post to say:
MC, FYI MPlayer searches through Optimal VO's now AFAIK, So IDT you need to specify the VO in most circumstances now.



Thanks for that Acid, your knowledge of Mplayer will never cease to amaze me.

Cool
