MPlayer Compile From Subversion


Has anyone tried compiling MPlayer today from subversion with libdvdcss, vdpau, and the internal GUI enabled?

I used to compile the mplayer export snapshot until the 20th of September, but without vdpau and gui. Plus, libdvdcss is an addon, mplayer doesnt link against it, it just uses it if it finds it at run time. Since then i switched to mplayer2 for better matroska support since some files couldn't be handled by mplayer.
Why, whats up?

I compiled and installed from svn yesterday (without gui), and I've just updated and recompiled now, enabling gui, vdpau and libdvdcss, without issue (other than the usual 6342 warnings (+/- 231))

cheers,

Here's my edited slackbuild that builds from svn. I have turned off the gui but you can probably fix that yourself.

Alternatively you could try this MPlayer.SlackBuild (or grab the readymade packages that are provided alongside): http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/pe...uilds/MPlayer/

The version of the script as provided at that URL was used to build a package from a SVN snapshot of end June 2011 but it will build today's SVN snapshot without issues.

Have the pre-built slackware64 packages enabled the radio interface as well?

For some reason, the autodetect feature of MPlayer isn't working with some SlackBuilds using today's source from subversion. My computer system has been acting a bit strange lately, though, as well. Maybe, I'm beginning to suffer hardware problems, e.g. a memory failure. I don't really know at this point.

I've built from SVN before. As far as the support factors go, often I just edit up the SlackBuild to suit my liking for the options used by the system. Haven't had any builds fail yet except due to a missing library, but those are easily fixed by installing the required dependencies.

My problems seem to be related to --enable-vdpau. If I don't manually enable it, the configure script doesn't locate it. When enabled, many of the other options don't autodetect as well so I apparently need to look at my installation of libvdpau. I'm trying to use NVidia's -285 binary driver and I made some changes to libvdpau when I installed it.... so back to the drawing board. I haven't used a NVidia GPU in years so I'm a bit rusty.

Did you install LibVA and VDPAU-Video as well?

I don't know what you did to libvdpau, but you shouldn't have a problem if you just use the SlackBuilds.org scripts for nvidia-kernel, nvidia-driver and libvdpau. Just edit them (bump the VERSION) to have them build the 285.05.09 drivers.

Why? This is completely irrelevant.

Yeah, I tried to use nVidia's installer for their binary driver with libvdpau at first since I already had the driver installed. After I decided to uninstall the binary driver and use SlackBuilds instead, everything went smoothly after changing the version. The only other major hurdle was MPlayer's internal libdvdnav.. After messing around with some include files for the internal version of libdvdnav, I finally decompressed the source for MPlayer and renamed the libdvdnav directory to libdvdnav_bak and recompressed the source. Then I downloaded libdvdnav from trunk and built it as an external library and then installed it as a separate package. Only then did mplayer finally compile with my required options. I now have MPlayer just like I want it including support for VDPAU.

Thanks to everyone!
