algyzas,
What options did you enable with your MPlayer package? Without this information, we're completely in the dark as to why we should use your version.

MPlayer has a plethora of additional options, some are automatically enabled with the configure script, but many need to be explicitly enabled. And of course, some of these options require additional libraries.

For example, quite a few people on this forum use MPlayer as a webcam viewer, but unless you enabled the Video4Linux (V4l/V4L2) input, this option will be disabled.

Or if you didn't enable the "xv" output option, Pentium1/Pentium2 users will have stuttering DVD playback.

It's true that my MPlayer package is 18 months old, but the only significant change to MPlayer since then has been MPEG4 hardware acceleration support. Did you enable one of the MPEG4 acceleration features, such as VDPAU?

Do you have any plans to update mplayer for puppy to support hardware MPEG4 (H.264) decoding? My home theater uses your mplayer and lirc packages (running on 4.0 with the 2.6.21 kernel). My next plan is to replace the noisy Pentium 4 PC with an Intel Atom/nvidia Ion fanless system. The Ion chipset has hardware H.264 decoding, which allows 1080p HD playback. The Atom CPU by itself can't handle it. I think the only missing piece is a puppy-friendly mplayer that supports the nvidia hardware.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, I will do a "cutting-edge" MPlayer when Puppy5 (uPup) is released.
I might do a "cutting-edge" ffmpeg to match it.

Yes, an excellent choice for for Home Media system. And yes, the onboard Intel video chips typically associated with Atom systems just don't cut it. nVIDIA is the go for video performance.

The last I heard was that Barry wants to make uPup library-compatible with Ubuntu Karmic Koala
so according to Google, that means October.

Hi tempestuous why wait for series 5 when 4.3 is almost at RC1 status?
The repo mplayer was/is broke since day one it was uploaded, would be nice to have something small but working out of the box.

There's some self-interest involved.
I'm playing with the idea of developing a multimedia device based using an embedded operating system, and I was going to strip back Ubuntu for various reasons relating to the SDK available for the embedded hardware ... but when I heard about uPup I thought that it was worthwhile synchronising my project with this.
I want to wait to make my OS fully Karmic Koala/uPup compatible - that means GCC, glibc, and GTK2.
And there may be some kernel optimisations for my hardware, too.

All in all, a bit of work. I have a busy job these days, so I don't want to go through the exercise twice.

Hi tempestous,

I recently created a smplayer pet (mplayer frontend) that includes the mplayer-1.0rc2-071007.pet file, I suppose it´s a older pet from the official repositories and not includes any feature included in your recent compiled mplayer version. It doesn´t have support for any AMD extension to the x86 instruction set either.

I want to include your mplayer version to smplayer, but I want to know if you compiled it with 3DNow! support and other AMD extensions. If not, then It could be good to have two mplayer versions that support AMD and Intel (you don´t mention it in your first post) extended instructions and speedup video processing for that architecture.

Thank you for the attention pleased,
clarf

I compiled this version of MPlayer with runtime-cpu detection.
If you launch it from the commandline you should see that your CPU is detected ...
but don't expect any noticeable performance improvement from CPU optimisation.

Far more significant performance will be gained by ensuring that you are using MPlayer's xv video output under Xorg (not xvesa).

It works when I run mplayer with:

mplayer -vo xvmc -vc ffmpeg12mc dvb://

AND generated a channels.conf with scan -x 0 -t 1 ...
AND did not edit the first line in channels.conf

Now an old man can watch tv with his old computer,
thanks tempestuous for your work

Dear Tempestuous

If you are willing could you compile it with the dependencies incorporated?

I had attempted to use the last posted ffmpeg however it demanded an awful lot of dependencies. When I finally gathered the dependencies or made the appropriate symlinks it then crashed due to symbol lookup failure.

Maybe puppy versions later than "dingo" don't have this problem?

Anyway I gave up, instead I found the latest hot off the press WIN32 version (which is a WIN32 console program) works well with WINE. There is a 2007 version of ffmpeg (I think it was on a the 4.1 retro distribution) but the latest versions of ffmpeg have recent work on AAC encoding.

thanks

when the menu is refreshed that edit gets lost so do this instead:
Replace /usr/local/share/applications/mplayer.desktop contents with this for the menu entry

Code:

GenericName=Multimedia player
Comment=Multimedia player
Comment[de]=Multimedia-Player

then in the console type fixmenus and then restart jwm.
