I also compiled MPlayer to see if it could fix my problem with gecko-mediaplayer plugin and I have the same problem. It compiles fine but crashes on startup. I'm looking into it right now. So far this is all I have to go on

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: unknown
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

I'm using svn snapshot 29633 and I'm not having any issues with programs that use mplayer. I have Gnome player as well as the gecko-mediaplayer plugin installed and haven't seen any issues. Do you have a test case for the gecko-mediaplayer-plugin?

I just did EXACTLY what alien-bob suggested (ie update build script). It pulled down the latest code, into a directory and then failed, saying it could not find the tarball. So I simply did a 'tar -jcvf MPlayer-r29709.tar.bz2 MPlayer-r29709/'
and re-ran the build - and it built fine.

Then I did a manual test of a simple avi (divx) and it worked fine. I don't do gecko-* stuff - can't comment on that.

Actually gecko works fine on 32bit for me, but is unstable to the point of unusable on 64bit. Are you running 64?

We'll I got it to work with a band-aid fix. The reason I recompile mplayer is to get vdpau support since I have a nvidia card, that above error only seems to affect gui mplayer, if I run from mplayer from command line it works fine. So I just run gnome-mplayer now and it works fine. Still looking into fixes up as of now it works with gnome-mplayer and I have vdpau support .

I believe the default gui has been effectively abandoned by the MPlayer developers.

this revision looks like has a working-for-me gui, don't know if it's last revision in which gui works (surely not).
if you checkout that mplayer svn revision now it will checkout also a newer libswscale (in integrated-ffmpeg), so also after exporting that mplayer revision (29587) it won't build (that's why I linked the .tar.xz with the checkout I've done on 30th of august, it has the correct ffmpeg svn revision).

i choose to just not build the default gui anymore, but this is a personal decision.
looks like it will be probably removed from mplayer code.

Thanks for the heads up on the gui thing. I'm just using gnome-mplayer GUI frontend now with gecko-media plugins. I also finally got vdpau working. I can't believe I had just heard about this. Before a 1080p trailer would generally eat around 30-40% of my CPU now its less than 3%. Anyone with a newer nvidia card should check it out, it's a definite improvement.

There is also a xine-vdpau you can checkout also.
