installed mplayer but how do I get GUI interface

when I double click on a file I get mplayer to work but no sound. Also can anyone tell me how to get the gui interface for mplayer if there is one? How do I configure mplayer to play, pause, ff, etc. Thanx

if you compiled mplayer from source you have to go back and do this:

instead of

$ ./configure

you have to type

$ ./configure --enable-gui

then you will get gmplayer in the install dir. I believe precompiled packages have gmplayer by default.
