    Default MPlayer for suse 11.0?


    Hi. Anyone knows how to install mplayer or an equivalent player on suse
    11.0. I tried to install it from source without success, the "make
    install" breaks complaining that there is no default skin installed. Is
    there maybe an alternative player available, that opens most of media
    files. Thanks for help.

    When it comes to compiling MPlayer from source, user microchip is one
    of our resident experts.

    But it is easy to install MPlayer (together with its excellent front
    end smplayer) from pre-compiled rpms.

    I assume your PC has internet access? If so, then the very first
    thing you should do is setup your software package management. Do so by
    adding 4 and only 4 repositories to your Software package manager. A
    "repository" is in essence the address of a file server where there are
    many applications on that file server. Specifically I recommend you add
    OSS, Non-OSS, Update and Packman. Just those 4 repositories (repos).
    No others. None. You can add more than those 4 only when you understand
    the risks and problems that can arise from other repositories, and also
    only when you understand how to fix such problems.

    There is a guide here on how to add those 4 repositories;
    'Repositories/11.0 - openSUSE-Community'
    (http://opensuse-community.org/Repositories/11.0) Again add ONLY OSS,
    Non-OSS, Update and Packman. Just those 4 for now.

    Once you have those 4 added, then go to YaST > Software > Software
    Manager, and change "filter" to search and search for "smplayer". Add
    smplayer. That will also pickup MPlayer as a dependency, and you are
    all set.

    what do you mean by "make install breaks complaining there is no
    default skin"??? MPlayer by default does not come with a skin so you
    will have to download one and place it in /home/username/.mplayer/Skins
    and name it "default" or if this doesn't work, you should place it in
    /usr/local/share/mplayer/skin and name it "default"

    make install will NOT break because there's no skin, it will only warn
    you

    AFAIK Kaffeine already supports MPlayer.

    Kaffeine supports Mplayer? Could you elaborate on that?

    Kaffeine by default uses the xine-lib, though it also supports
    Gstreamer. It can, however, be extended to support mplayer using the
    KPart system

    I understand that Kaffeine is able to use the MPlayer backend.

    Thank you all for contributions. I thought that in Mplayer source there
    is a default skin so I gues this is the source of my problem. But
    rather than compiling from source I'll try to install it via yast, which
    has no repository containing mplayer yet, but I'll add them and we'll
    see how it works out Thanks again.

    I personally prefer installation from sources. Use ./configure
    --enable-gui. Also use instructions in #3 to place default skin folder.
    also don't forget to place a font with name subfont.ttf. if make install
    fails, use make -ki install (Very bad use, but sometimes it works).
