I've seen that Capt Fish has made reference to using the optimized mplayer from the angstrom distro.

How do i do this, i'm still relatively new to linux.

from what i can tell the pkgs are in ipkg format, but zUbuntu uses apt and dpkg since it is debian based.

how do i connect to the angstrom feed and install packages?



UPDATE: So it appears that xarchiver can read and extract the ipks, does this mean that i should just go to the angstrom repo, and dl mplayer and all of its dependencies and their dependencies then just extract everything? Will this work, or am i going to break something? and Is there and easier way?

Well, yes and no. The pdaXrom ipks are tarballs, but Angstrom ipks are ar archives.
