What is a CVS?

Does it have anything to do with MPlayer?

CVS is the Concurrent Versioning System. It's a change control system often used in software development. It has nothing really to do with MPlayer except you can probably get the MPlayer source from its CVS repository.

If you're ever unsure about what something is, searching for it on Wikipedia will generally explain it pretty well. It's the first place I look for terms I'm unsure of

Lightbulb about your CVS query

Hi Jojojo,

As stated to you CVS is "concurrent versioning system", this is used to control versioning and maintain history of the code or whatever we do during the devlopment of our projects.

This is same as " visual source safe VSS " iff you know, which we genrally use in W!n|)ws.
but then its(VSS) paid.............

Hope this info. helps

Warm Regards
