needed help in finding a suitable video player!


Hi all,
I had been using kde 3.5.8 for a while on solaris but the problem was that i was not able to use Gnome for some strange reasons...
It constantly used to misbehave.
(Whether it was cde-login or gdm)
So i had to remove kde completely and now am left with no video or audio players .
So i would request anyone to please point me out to a working video player on solaris(b84). Also a suitable audio player!

Thanks

I suggest VLC media player, really excellent, will run everything more or less out of the box, and has support for most of the more unusual codecs. Unfortunately/fortunately for Solaris there are no binaries, so you will have to compile yourself! Try this link:

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

VLC is very good at playing all kinds of media, but not great with playlists for example. Have a go, see how you get on!

Best of luck!

It is non trivial to compile VLC for Solaris. I suggest you try the spec file for CBE Solaris building environment instead.
