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?


-thnx

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?

mplayer and quasar work very well as a music player. not so much for video.
i'm using the mplayer from here.
(i messed things up very badly trying to install the angstrom version. I disregarded the advice
to install libraries through apt)

playing mp3s uses about 10% of the cpu. wma uses about 50%.
with audacious it was 50-70 and 90-100 respectively.

coming from a Zodiac, I'm disappointed with the video performance of the Zaurus.
I think that it was better with Cacko/pdaX. Course i have no idea if the bvdd or iwmmx
ever got updated to 2.6 kernel.

will give angstrom version another go, soon. Need to rebuild my pc 1st.
