Mplayer 20100620

June 21, 2010 — BarryK
I have compiled Mplayer, however there is a problem.

With recent Quirky and Wary releases they have been built with mplayer that was configured with '--disable-gui', and instead Gnome-mplayer GUI frontend has been used.

That's fine, but I have taken another look at compiling mplayer with '--enable-gui'. This provides a GUI with a wide choice of skins. Quite nice, except not so nice with JWM. JWM rev. 492 only displays the GUI control panel as a black box when X is set to 16-bit color depth. 24-bit works ok.

I have reported this bug to Joe:

would it be possible to include mencoder in the build and create a seperate package for it? tia aragon"21 Jun 2010, 14:40"01675"'
