MPlayer Download


MPlayer is a free and open source media player. MPlayer supports a wide variety of media formats and can also save all streamed content to a file. MPlayer is a command line application which has different optional GUI front-ends for each of its supported operating systems. 

It plays most MPEG/VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, RealMedia, Matroska, NUT, NuppelVideo, FLI, YUV4MPEG, FILM, RoQ, PVA files, supported by many native, XAnim, and Win32 DLL codecs. You can watch VideoCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5, WMV and even H.264 movies.

* Will be necessary to play:
- SDL GCC4 Game Libraries (SDL, SDL_MIXER)

* Builded with FontConfig support (good for subtitles and for SMPlayer port, that is not working yet (Qt port issues))

* Updated OpenAL to the latest version

* Can read DVDs, in thesis (scottmc reports that is not working yet)

* added an application signature. So now you can set as an prefered apps from FileTypes preflet

Thank you! I can't wait for the SMplayer port to mature.

BTW. Does MPlayer need qt? I don't see that info.

No.. actually only SDL (until someone does both media kit and bwindow implementations)

SMPlayer, Frontend GUI for mplayer that needs Qt (Builds and runs, but have serious issues), see the second screenshot

I created a mPlayer Widget [later on i'll add it into HaikuWidgets] to "quick drag & drop files and play" all video files [ drag and drop works even from NTFS partition ] in mPlayer. Check it out, and give feedback..

Michael, can You check libs paths in mplayer, coz while im using official SDL gcc4 libs from repo, i need to add a symbolic link into /common/lib because mplayer cannot see sdl lib from /common/lib/gcc4

MARVELOUS WIDGET!! I'll add a link to it here!

about the libs, please copy SDL gcc4 libs inside mplayer/lib folder ;D

/commom/lib - /commom/lib/gcc4 problem is related to haiku_loader from gcc2 hybrid...

Interesting, but a separate video window was what I hated the most about the old VLC port.

yeah, i hate it aswell.. binding video window with gui would be perfect..

This requires the writing of native vout driver for mplayer with indirect drawing support.
+1 # RE: RE: RE: RE: SMplayer. Work fine.sparklewind 2010-08-04 07:45
Indirect drawing?

this mplayer key used for embedding video:

This tells MPlayer to use a X11 window, which is useful to embed MPlayer in a browser (with the plugger extension for instance)."

This application meets compliance standards.

hi michael
this one does not work on the latest builds anymore.
would you be kind to post the options you used with ./configure and the deps that i might need to get it to build?
this will save me a great deal of time searching for the right info.
also is it possible to drop SDL as a dep?

Please look here:

This file is a recipe to build it :)
