Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 3DNow 3DNowEx


Reading config file /usr/local/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf
Reading config file /root/.mplayer/config
[cfg]
read config file: /root/.mplayer/gui.conf
Reading config file /root/.mplayer/gui.conf: No such file or directory

vo: X11 running at 1024x768 with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0.0" => local display)

Reading /root/.mplayer/codecs.conf: 61 audio & 157 video codecs

I edit the input.conf file to enable gui all the time....

2 things:

1. you appear to be running it as root - what happens when you run as a user?

2. which command do you use to run MPlayer? is it mplayer or gmplayer?

Actually, as a possible 3rd issue - I had the same problem - it worked fine on the command line but not as a gui - that was under SuSE 9 Pro. And I couldn't get it fixed.

I think (and I have no proof of this) that it is a bug in the latest version. I even tried creating the gui.conf file to try to force the system to work - but to no avail.

I wonder if anyone has got the latest version to work?
