How do I get mplayer to work?

Postby hollywood » Sat Aug 16, 2003 7:04 am

I found this site on another forum and went through and installed mplayer with synaptic which is great. I've been trying to get it installed for months and was about to give up till I say this. Now I have the damn thing installed but when I go to play a video it still reads that there is no capable veiwer installed to display then the file name. What am I missing here I can't find mplayer in any of the menu's. but it does seem to be in /etc. And synaptic says that it is installed.
Please help

On my system the menu item is under the "Red Hat menu"->"Sound & Video"->"More Sound & Video Applications"->"Movie Player".

I never start it from the menu though. There are two executable files that should be installed "mplayer" and "gmplayer". "gmplayer" is the one that is called when you click the menu item mentioned above. You can run these commands from the command line as well. To get it to actually work you might run "gmplayer" and then right click your mouse anywhere on the GUI which will bring up a menu. Click "Preferences" then the "Video" tab at the top, then select "X11". Once you do this it should save this setting for both gmplayer and mplayer. These two commands can also be run from the comand line or you can associate them with all of your video file types so when you click on them they load in /usr/bin/gmplayer.

You'll also want to download all the codecs from the main mplayer web site and extract into your /usr/lib/win32 directory and then you should be able to play almost any audio/video content.

Here is the page with all the codecs:
http://ftp3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/

Good luck. MPlayer is an *excellent* utility.

yes take all of that advice.

also, it's worth associating all the supported file types with mplayer or gmplayer if you use kde (you can probably fdo it in gnome and with other file manager apps too) by right clicking a file of a particular type, then selecting "edit file type" then make sure gmplayer is at the top of the applications list, and make sure it's set to open in an external viewer.

Just makes it easier if you want to doubleclick a file and open it in a particular app in kfm.
