Full Version: Sound Problem with Mplayer on SL-5600
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Zaurus General Forums > General Support and Discussion > Software
My Zaurus is SL-5600 with the original Sharp ROM version 1.32.

I managed to get Mplayer up by downloading and installing the following packages:

However, it works with avi or mpeg file with no sound using the following command:

mplayer -nosound -quiet 123.mpg

When the option -nosound is removed, I obtained an error message. partial of the error message is listed below:

Detected MPEG-PS file format!
VIDEO: MPEG1 352x288 (aspect 25.00 fps 1400.0 kbps (175.0 kbyte/s)
Opening audio decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg/libavcodec audio decoders

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: init_audio_codec
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM. Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and disassembly. For details, see DOCS/bugreports.html section 5.b.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen. It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/bugreports.html and follow instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide these informations when reporting a possible bug.

List of codecs available on my SL-5600:

Can someone advise how to solve the sound problem with Mplayer?
Try the mplayer version packaged with kino2 from Zaurus Software

You dont need the gui. The gui will run on the 5600 but you cant access the play controls even in landscape mode. I wish I know where to get the source. It's the only ipk you need to install.

You might think about reencoding your movies for playback on the Z.

Thanks for the pointers and I will try them.
I got sound while playing mpeg movie. However, it slows down when avi movie is played. Any command line options should I try?
try -framedrop
