cannot play wmv video files with mplayer
 
Hi,
I downloaded the codecs from slakbuilds and installed but mplayer still complains about missing codec for mwv format :(

Bruce Hill 09-25-2010 05:02 PM

First removepkg the one you got that doesn't work.

Then install AlienBob's mplayer-codecs-all and everything else from his
restricted_slackbuilds. He hasn't updated the restricted MPLayer in a
long time, but his VLC and other apps are up-to-date and good.

In terms of codecs you might be interested to know that the MPlayer developers have assembled another pack:

Thanks, Andrew ... might as well replace those 3-year old ones.

Alien Bob 09-26-2010 07:48 AM

Thanks for the hint. I have updated my MPlayer and mplayer-codecs packages. They will appear on my mirrors in a few hours, see http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/pe...d_slackbuilds/ and http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien...d_slackbuilds/ .

I have added a 64-bit codec pack too. That one is not nearly as comprehensive as the 32-bit version - 64-bit Windows is not yet as popular for video playback support apparently.

I am using VLC myself for all my video playback. VLC does not depend on all those proprietary Windows DLLs, and VLC can play DVD's with a decent navigation menu. Basically, Mplayer is only used on my computer by the electricsheep screensaver (and that was exactly the reason why MPlayer was added to Slackware anyway).

Thank to you all. At this moment I am a bit busy - but within the next week I am sure I will install both new mplayer codecs and the VLC media player.

Don't know if you plan to build your pkgs of MPlayer for 13.0 or not,
and of course you know the 13.1 pkg won't work on Slackware 13.0

Just assuming you didn't build MPlayer and libdvdcss for 13.0 for
the same reasons.

Thanks for your packages.

I am guessing that you meant "of course you know the 13.1 pkg won't work on Slackware 13.0 with a different toolchain" here?

I have written in my repository changelog that
Code:

Sun May 30 20:45:59 UTC 2010 NOTE: Starting now, I will only be creating packages for Slackware 13.1.
... there will not be a Slackware 13.0 package for MPlayer or libdvdcss in my repository. You should be able to use my SlackBuild and compile a package of your own without effort though.

Eric

Bruce Hill 09-27-2010 09:37 AM

You caught my typo, thanks.

Yes, I have a MPlayer built on Slackware 13.0. Just seems funny
that you'd skip a version in a public repo since you mentioned
in an earlier post you'd be updating MPlayer. Many people are
still running Slackware 13.0.

Understand your commitment to VLC. It's nice, but MPlayer still
has better controls from a terminal emulator.

Yes, I did update MPlayer, but I can and will not be updating packages for older releases. You are invited to upgrade to Slackware 13.1, but since I guess you have good reasons to stay with 13.0 for now, there is - as I said earlier - always the option of downloading source and SlackBuild and create your own packages.

There is only so much time that I am able spend on a hobby.

You lost me here. You mean you have not yet found the hotkeys available in VLC? See "preferences > interface > hotkeys settings". The VLC keyboard controls are as powerful as those of MPlayer.
Or are you referring to something else?

You might be interested in updating again as the MPlayer developers have had a closer look at the codecs available on their site and created a new pack with quite a few extra codecs for 32bit users:
