I had the same issue after the 21.04.2015 -current update: MPlayer wouldn't show videos. I recompiled it before and after today's (25.04.2015) update, and in both cases it works just fine. I didn't touch anything else. Vanilla -current here, no multilib.

Best regards,
Philip

The bug still present on INTEL graphics cards.

AMD , no bugged , and nvidia im not tested.


Need recompile the package , bug no download the ffmpeg & mplayer .xz files.

Then the script , download new git sources ...the new TXZ , is generated on /tmp


slackbuilds.org/mirror/slackware/slackware-current/source/xap/MPlayer/ (i cant put entirely url ...for spam fight , then put manually)


download the files except ffmpeg & mplayer .xz

put files in a folder , new terminal on the folder and exec de slackbuild , to generate new TXZ



Philip Lacroix is on the correct way.

It may take a bit of time for all mirror sites to get the new updates.

Thank you! I still have the issue described here (MPlayer freezes):

On the other hand, videos play just fine when using the x11 driver, though MPlayer still gives the same "DRI failure" error.

I tried rebuilding the previous 20150403 version, grabbed from a not yet up to date Polish mirror:

http://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/...e/xap/MPlayer/

Code:
Blue-1.10.tar.bz2		25-Mar-2014 14:25 	217K	 
MPlayer-20150403.tar.xz		03-Apr-2015 20:15 	5.0M	 
MPlayer.SlackBuild		03-Apr-2015 22:47 	18K	 
cdio-includes.patch.gz		09-Mar-2015 21:05 	422 	 
ffmpeg-2.6.1.tar.xz		16-Mar-2015 20:43 	6.2M	 
include-samba-4.0.patch.gz	09-Mar-2015 21:07 	219 	 
slack-desc			05-Apr-2015 07:08 	1.1K
There's no "DRI failure" error anymore, but MPlayer still freezes. With the x11 driver it doesn't freeze, but then when I switch workspace (on Xfce) while the video is playing I see the latest frame previously shown by xscreensaver, instead of the desktop. I didn't check this with other window managers.

<edit> The mentioned xscreensaver frame doesn't show on workspaces with no open windows.

I can run MPlayer with no issues on another Pentium IV with a full and updated -current installation. I don't have access to the previously mentioned machine right now, but there is probably some package missing there, though not one of the new ones. As far as I'm concerned I consider the problem solved. Sorry for cluttering the thread.

Am sorry to report that some! bug continues even after the 4/25 update. Can play video just fine from command line (mplayer somevideo). However, using GUI does not work: video screen disappears, audio is, well, still audible.

The errors I could spot (from terminal) are:
1. Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_i965.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[vdpau] Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 1
(I have libvdpau installed)
2. [AO OSS] audio_setup: Can't open audio device /dev/dsp: No such file or directory
(This is normal, I guess)

Since I have a perfectly good audio + video when starting it from an xterm, I assume none of the errors are critical for the GUI operation to fail. Any suggestions?

Added: After today's upgrades, I decided to give it a try and this time it worked. Maybe I chose the wrong video driver, don't know.
