I see there is a new packaged version of MPlayer on Packman called “mplayer2”.
I’ve been incredibly busy at work and home, and have something like over 1000 emails from a couple mailing lists (packman, evergreen) and I’m trying to catch up. I did stumble across this item in the mailing list:
Subject: [packman] Packaging request: Mplayer2
Date: 03/17/2011 01:29 AM
I was advised to submit a request for someone to package something here. Please could somebody package Mplayer2 and upload it to the Packman repos?
Mplayer2 is a fork of Mplayer with bug fixes and better multithreaded support. It acts as a drop in replacement for Mplayer so all the frontends should work, I’ve got it working with gnome-mplayer running out of the build directory.
Please CC me if you reply to this message as I’m not subscribed to the list.
Thanks in advance,
Have any of our users tried MPlayer2 and have any comments on its functionality wrt MPlayer ?
I have this same problem with 11.4 x86_64. Maybe it is a 64-bit thing? It plays audio files fine, but video creates the correct sized window for a very brief moment and then gives the same crash as above.
