Question on SlackBuild for Mplayer and libdvdnav


Hi all,

I recently downloaded the SlackBuild scripts for Mplayer and its associated libraries from Slackbuilds.org. Everything compiled well and seems to be working except for DVD navigation.

I compiled and installed libdvdnav from Slackbuilds.org, but there's a note there that points out a problem:

Quote:
libdvdnav does conflict with libdvdread, as a modified version of libdvdread is already included. Most apps will work with this version too.
So how do I resolve that conflict and get Mplayer to work with libdvdnav?

Thanks,

-Drew

Hi,

I should stress that I have not actually tried this solution:

as I am waiting until a more mature product is incorporated into the svn mplayer.

BTW have you thought of modifying the SlackBuild script and running the svn mplayer? I am no scripting genius but I have successfully done it and performance gains are always huge even over rc2.

As long as you haven't installed libdvdread there's no conflict. libdvdread is a separate package.

Except with the mplayer internal dvdread? This comes with rc2 and svn.

Okay, so I installed libdvdread -- I guess that's my problem. I'll unistall it and then see if I need to recompile Mplayer.

Thanks,

Mplayer with dvdnav support is very easy. You just have to keep some things in mind.

First, mplayer's fork of libdvdnav installs a libdvdread.so. That's why it does conflict with libdvdread.
So, yes, make sure libdvdread is not installed, if you want to install libdvdnav.
If that's the case, all you have to do is run the MPlayer.SlackBuild from Slackbuilds.org. Mplayer will recognize
the installed libdvdnav automatically and enable support for it.

Second, if you want to use a svn-version of MPlayer with dvdnav support, you will also have to use a svn-version of libdvdnav.
