mplayer - super !!!!


Hi all!

People who have weak video cards (4MB or 8MB video memory) listen here. Persons with 32MB of video can press BACK button

I suggest you to download Mplayer. It is very good program. I have Intel integrated 82815 video controller 4MB, in Windows I couldn't even playback some films, but in Linux, with that program I can watch good quality films in full screen mode !!!!!!!! So download that program and enjoy your life.

Converted twice over, you have seen the darkside, and have chosen to stick with it. Soon you will be a Sith Lord as many others before you.

so you're saying if you have a 32mb video card it's not worth using MPlayer???? can't see the logic in that...

Boo for Linux commercials.

MPlayer rules, that would seem apparent. But it's a good thing to keep that known amongst the Linux community. Stupid winbloze doesn't need to know about it, otherwise they'll jack it like the other bastards did!

I am still extremely amazed that they had the Gonads to do that. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Cool
