Video Player for Fedora 11


Just loaded Fedora 11 and not happy with video player, totem or gm player, looking for a more all round solution that comes up automatically for all video needs. Been playing a bit with linux on and off for a few years but not being a programmer I generally give up as installing programs and updates can be a real problem. I even spent money to get OS2 when it first came out (32 floppies). now have a programmer in family so can also pick his brain.

command line mplayer (not the gui versoin!)
1. download the source snapshot (http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html)
2. download the codecs package "all-20071007.tar.bz2" (http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/)
3. make local codecs dir, e.g.:
Code:
$mkdir -p $HOME/.local/lib/codecs
4. copy codecs to codecs dir
5. configure the source:
Code:
./configure --prefix=$HOME/.local --codecsdir=$HOME/.local/lib/codecs
6.
Code:
make && make install
plays everything


quick reference:
----------------
i. play file
Code:
$ mplayer FILE
ii. play dvd
first mount dvd, then:
Code:
$ mplayer -dvd-device /where/you/mounted/the/dvd dvd://1
track nr. might be 2, 3, 4 ... (e.g. dvd://12).

changing audio language with the option "-alang en" (or: fr/de/sp/jp ...)
changing subtitle language with "-slang en" (or: fr/de/sp/jp ...)

for everything else see: man 1 mplayer

yeah, it's too complicate to type anyway. keyboard are from the last century. if i can't find a big friendly colorful button that tells me "click me - and all your problems are solved" i usually give up as well .
