2 Quick questions: After building & installing alien's MPlayer ver.20110624 - /usr/lib64/codecs/ - exist but is empty? All the tar.gz packages are in my Downloads/Alien/mplayer. The slack description text also reports libavcodec accessibility. Questions are what directory does MPlayer.SlackBuild put codecs in?

Do I copy all the tar.gz files into /usr/lib64/codecs & untar them? Everything is work fine after installing dvdcss - despite having an empty /usr/lib64/codecs folder? Just want to make the codecs available to other multi-media apps, xube etc.

jbrush - I relate to your frustrations as a newb, been there, am there often. Slackware was my first Linux Distro & only with no computer background. I stopped using current because it is a development version and if something goes wrong I don't know how to fix it. Stable never crashes unless I break it and I don't know how. Slackware is whatever you have the patience to turn it into & its' community will teach you how to enjoy it. You'll get more than you put into it so install libdvdcss.

Use Mplayer from Slackware and install mplayer codec from slackbuilds. They have two separate codecs, for 32/64 bit machines. Use it according to your architecture

Did you notice that this thread is six years old, and that jbrush stopped visiting LQ more than four years ago?
