MPlayer vaapi on Slackware-current


Hello All,

I have re-compiled the default MPlayer that comes with Slackware. I've added vaapi support for new intel chips. If you want to try it out. Feel free to use the package with the 2 additional dependencies [Required].

The MPlayer package will replace the one that comes by default on a full Slackware install.
It does not have the gui enabled and does not have support for vdpau.

#MPlayer
#libva
#libva-intel-driver


After you are done. Just choose "vaapi" from SMPlayer video driver option.

Just for reference: My laptop Specs:

Quote:
Intel Core i5 3210M (Ivy Bridge)
Intel HD4000 (Inbuilt)
8GB Ram
SNA Accel enabled in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

Good Luck~

With all due respect good sir, I think most of us would be happier if you provided the Slackbuilds. Downloading binaries from someone you don't know is almost as bad as having sex with someone who's history you also don't know - it just ain't safe !

Mark,

I understand. I am uploading the files to my dropbox account. I am including the MPlayer source xz archive, as it's modified. I have a slow connection at home, so it will take a while to upload. Will update the post as soon as it is finished!

Here are the slackbuilds with the source files.


libva>
libva-intel-driver>
MPlayer>

Arranged according to the build order.

Make sure you read the slack-required file inside the MPlayer Slackbuild archive.

Good Luck
