mplayer?


Since Kaffine and RealPlayer have insisted on being lame, I've gone with mPlayer. Only problem is, if I play any movie, it plays it really wierd.

I'm using SuSe9.2, a Micro-Star International i845 graphics card and a "generic monitor". Anything else you need just ask.

Here is the text it outputs when I run it:

You are running it in framebuffer. Try use xv or x11 as the video output device.

no xv or x11 seem to work. I looked throught the mplayer list of video output devices and tried them all one by one, with no luck. Where can I get xv or x11?

It depends on the driver. You may have to run Linux only in framebuffer mode. If you do not want to use framebuffer, search Intel's site for a Linux driver.

Can you explain a little more? How can you run linux in framebuffer mode? I'm fine with that, I just want some way to actually watch movies.

IMHO, me thinks your error has nothing to do with your video. Look at your first error:

Failed to open /dev/rtc: Permission denied (it should be readable by the user.)


/dev/rtc is the real time clock. It appears your kernel is not loading the rtc as a module, thus it is not available and thus unreadable. This would explain why the audio sounds warbled. Without a time standard, the app cannot keep "a beat".

I'm not sure how to configure the kernel in SuSE, but the Debian way is with module-assistant. I believe you need to d/l, configure and install enhanced RTC support.

mplayer works fine if /dev/rtc does not have the right permissions or you are using 2.6.x kernel which relies on a different real time scheme. Again it is the framebuffer because not all codecs works correctly in that mode. Try using either xv or x11 as the video output device. If that does not work buy an AGP graphics card like a nVidia GeForce6 6200.
