Mplayer 1.0pre8
« on: June 30, 2006, 11:33:05 am »
Mplayer 1.0pre8 is out ( http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html ), and it supports some file formats that pre7 did not. Some that I have wanted to use for some months now.

So how do I build mplayer 1.0pre8 for pdaX? Or is there someone that knows how that wants to throw it together for all of us?

You can check how we do it in OpenEmbedded - XorA added 1.0pre8 sometime ago (with w100 acceleration so mplayer-atty is going to be removed from OZ).

the new file formats that were added aren't really relevant to the Z since they are wrappers around .dll files...

anyway, I compiled it but just to have gmplayer enabled

WhichWM are you using in that picture? I'm still looking for a WM that can minimize windows in GPE

clofland...

I package that meanie offered should work under pdaXrom... you will either have to add /opt/QT(something)/bin to your path or create a symbolic link to your /usr/bin or /bin...

Actually it does with beta3, but unfortunately it doesn't recognize the proper video output driver (bvdd) on my SL3200, which I specified in my .../.mplayer/config file ("can't initialize proper output driver -vo..."). Also the gui is way too small. Can it be magnified like xmms? Maybe someone could compile it again with different preferences. Would be a great enhancement compared to xmms...

Thanks, and no, actually it does play new formats. I just ripped the mplayer binary out of your package to test it, and from the command line this new version of mplayer will play sounds files that the pre7 version will not.

Specifically AAC files encoded for my Nokia cell phone. It is really nice to be able to just encode my files to one format that my phone and the Z can both play!

So, again, thanks!!

I haven't tested the GUI yet, but I'll give it a shot too.

oh those new formats. i overlooked them and thought you meant the latest wmv and rm formats  if I feel inclined, I might even recompile it with optimisations enabled so it won't run like a snail...

oh btw, this is compiled for pdaXrom, so no /opt/QtPalmtop....
it includes both mplayer and mencoder, hence the size

Actually, the mplayer binary that came with Beta 3 is 1.9 megs and this new one is 5 megs. The binary grew quite dramatically. Did you run the post-compile whatever to strip down the binary?

Oh, and we certainly wouldn't mind an optimized version.

well, I double checked, it was actually compiled with -O4 optimisation
so I guess, its either size or speed
i will try adding mtune=xscale and see what happens

Cool, I vote for speed.   I was thinking maybe you had not "stripped" the binary after compiling it (I know VERY little about such things), but from what I can tell it looks like you did.

Also, I'm a little lost on the GUI. Where do I find gmplayer?

gmplayer is a symlink to mplayer. if nplayer is started as gmplayer it starts the GUI

I installed Meanies ipk but when i try to run gmplayer or mplayer I get a an error.

gmplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Any ideas.  COuld this be because I installed to a external source?

THanks in advance
