mplayer menu


A crucial question for me :

Is it possible to use dvd menu whith mplayer even if this possibility is still in developpement ?

In other terms can mplayer be compiles with libdvdnav ?

I got the libdvdnav rpm (from ogle)

Install it

made a rpm -qlp libdvdnav

and obtain the files installed by this rpm

with a ./configure help

I obtain the syntax to use to compile with libdvdnav ( 2 options )

then did a make make install

and in finished when i type mplayer -dvd 1 -dvdnav

i got a

libdvdnav is not a valid option for mplayer and encoder

when i looked to configure.log i could see that the autodetection fails!

an ideas ? is Acid on vacation ?

;-)

has someone

in fact i got excellent results with Mplayer (the best dvd player for me) but i want always more !!!


I precise that the mplayer archive list doesnt help on this subject.

thanks.

hahahahahaahaha no i'm here....

erm, no the dvd menu is still very much in developement, you can still try out what it can do by downloading the dvdnav library and enabling it during configure. last time i checked it showed the menu but precious little after that.

good thigns take time though. you can be sure than when it is working it will be the best written menu navigation system on linux...

well with the libraries installed (i have libdvdnav-0.1.1, but can't remember where i got the bz2ball from... oh try http://sourceforge.net/projects/dvd/ ) and then it's ./configure --with-libdvdnav=whereyouinstalleddvdnavlibrariesto

and run it with mplayer -dvdnav

You said you installed the libdvdnav rpm, did you install the matching -dev rpm as well? AFAIK, without the C headers, you can't compile a program against it so no program that you compile can make use of the library.

following your advice i installed libdvdnav-0.1.2

a tar.gz file

unpacked it

then do a ./configure && make && make intall

dvdnav is autodetected by the configure script

and then after

./configure --enable-gui --enable-joystick --language=fr
--with-libdvdnav= /usr/local/include/dvdnav

launching mplayer : i got this message :

mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libdvdnav-0.1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

i think there 's a ln -s something ???

and mplayer doesn't work anymore!!!!

lol
