Please go over the shell script and make sure the library paths are correct for your setup. libdca/x264 should be in /usr/local/MPlayer-1.1.1/lib. Your system is not finding libdca for some reason. Maybe try moving the contents of /usr/local/MPlayer-1.1.1/lib into /usr/local/lib and try again...

An hour was optomistic for those packages -- Brain is fried.

ETA sometime on 1/27.

Because you are such a nice person I will not scald you with the dragon-breath fricasee :P /usr/local on my computer is the gateway to Hell, abandon all hope, ye who enter here ... :D

I did try messing with the script to some extent, it should have worked but refused. I'm a tcsh-er, that probably has something to do with it.

So I just put the mplayer tree into the /opt directory, renamed mplayer to mplay so I wouldn't accidentally get the Other Mplayer, then swiped < setenv LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH /opt/mplayer/lib > into my winterm. Then ran < /opt/mplayer/bin/mplay -vo gl2 /usr/people/me/hotsytotsy/videofile.avi > and all went smoothly.

yay ! It plays ! Don't have enough time in to make comments but one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind :D

(The time signature in the upper left corner looks strange tho. Odd font problem ?)

gracias, muchacho !

oooh ooh oooh. Ran a couple of old 'problem' files through. Three out of four now play .. at the age of thirty-seven, she realized she'd never ride through Paris in a sportscar with the warm wind in her hair ...

nice :D :D :D

This is exciting, actually having an up-to-date mplayer here...
Now that I'm a VPro user I may have a chance to optimize the vpro path (when I previously worked on the sgi vo for mplayer, I had only an O2... all other platform paths were implemented by reading docs and hoping things worked...)

:) .. Well, that's exactly what it is -- a very small step. It's MPlayer 1.1.1 that works on IRIX. It still needs quite a bit of work (and I'm working on it, and I hope other ppl. here will too...)

I'm packaging up this release now as *.tardists.

That's just habit. I put self-compiled stuff in /usr/local, and commerical SW in /opt.

Oi. A lot. All the original ones and several more I liked ... but ditched the pseudo-Adobe fonts that SGI jammed down our throats at 23. There's probably a setting for that in the mplayer configuration file ?

I'll wait for your 'dist. No point in doing this twice. The goofy letters don't bother me, I turn off the on-screen display anyhow.

I may not be a good test for a lot of the 'advanced' features ... I just watch videos with it, don't even use an interface beyond the key combos.

You guys are gonna have something today. There's just alot of puzzle pieces to this SW and I want to make sure it's done right the first time, and it can co-exist with the 1.0* MPlayer. 16p O300 is burning the midnight oil right now re-building this until it's acceptable.

I'm getting this SW into the position we can do nightly builds or whatever with relative ease.

Maybe -- ft this a spiritual successor to MPlayer. I'm going to check it out.

Not to be an obstreperous bastard here but if you take a look at all those fork sites (mplayer2, xmplayer, mpv, &c) you will see that the major reason for their fork is "the mplayer team was too obstinate about 'cleaning up the code and getting rid of all that old cruft'. "

Old cruft = Irix. That's us, folks.

I spent a little effort talking to the xmplayer people because a single MIPS cpu is kinda slow for today's software. Two should be better and xmplayer was pushing smp. A short but accurate description of these forkers would be "asshole".

I did benchmarks a while ago on a dual 300MHz MIPS Octane2 to the dual 1.2GHz ARMv7 CPU in my cellular - but of course they weren't but so relative. That phone has 512MB RAM, so I loaded 512MB in the Octane, and I forced software decoding on my phone running mplayer to the Octane running mplayer, V8 graphics hardware.

The Octane dropped only 15% more frames in pure software decoding on XviD video at 640x480 at a relatively high bitrate. My phone is a midrange generic T-Mobile smartphone. If I changed it to gl2 or sgi for the mplayer, then it would close the gap to only 9%. My 600MHz dual Octane is out of comission at the minute due to waiting on a part.

Also, hamei, mpv mostly got rid of little used features of mplayer, and it still builds on MIPS systems according to my discussions on the mailing list. I imagine Axatax would have some nasty backporting to do though to get all the nice optimisations going good.

One of these days when I'm done with my C course at college I'll look into porting xine - C applications seem to have an easier time running on IRIX.

OK guys --

I just sent a metric ton of updated packages to /incoming relating to this project. Sorry for the delay on this -- getting the dependencies correct to work with both old/new MPlayers are somewhat of a challenge. :?

There's also a new "old" MPlayer that corrects the speex dependency and corrects some other Q/C-type issues -- LMK if this works OK.

Everything should be a 100% drop in/clean update if I handled this correctly. Please test and let me know.

If you want to play with the new mplayer, the .tar.gz in my directory still pertains. This is going to be a proper .tardist soon, but there's alot of "parts" to this, and I want to get it into a state where I can essentially automate routine builds of this.


Thanks for hanging in...
