i didn't get gmplayer


here is another stupid mplayer problem.

I have downloaded the source code of the mplayer(i was scared of the dependencies of RPMs). I followed the instruction given in documentation (make, make install) but i didn't get the gmplayer...!? WHY? Even on command line, i was able to play MP3s but was not able to play mpg...!? They were playing only with sound, no video. I issued the command

mplayer credits.mpg

Thanks in advance

You have to run ./configure --enable-gui for compiling the GUI for mplayer.
Before doing that, download the codecs of the homepage and put them in /usr/lib/win32.
Run the configuration script with the flag, and while doing that, download a skin for mplayer (also available at the homepage).
Copy the skin to your home, under .mplayer/Skin (don't remeber if is skin or Skin, i don't use GUI for mplayer).

Hope it helps

To add to the above - the skin should be extracted to: /home/your directory/.mplayer/Skin/default and you should also put your fonts into /home/yourdirectory/.mplayer/font

Grab all of the codecs available - it makes mplayer run everything and saves you going back later to add them.
