Okay, fer those of ya what's afraid of the unknown ....

Everything appears to be copacetic, c'mon in, the water's fine. Works at least as well as before, perhaps better. I now have two mplayers in the swmgr display but that is quite possibly because my installation is a mess. Too many betas :? Someone with a cleaner installation should give this baby a run-through but not to fear, it does work.

I'd give 'er a vote for /current but this is just a step on the way to a more current version ? With better threading support ?

I've just tried to install it but am facing some issues.
  • libdca and libx264 couldn't be mapped, which has been solved by copying MPlayer-1.1.1/lib folder content to /usr/local/lib
  • libdvdnavmini.so.5 still remains and I can't find how to install it (even find the file somewhere to download it)

Did any of you also encountered this issue and found a way to solve it ?
Am I doing sth wrong ?

Done ! I was too stupid...
My local copy of nekoware/beta was not rsync'd properly. I've now installed the last libdts, libdvdcss, libdvdnav and libdvdread.
Everything is now working OK (more than 10 vids tested so far). Libs could also be removed from /usr/local/lib.

Thanks !

Hey, all -- I appreciate the testing.

Let me clarify what's going on here WRT to all these packages in /beta.

There's effectively three branches of MPlayer now --

1. There's the MPlayer 1.0rc1 in /current - all of the dependencies are satisfied with packages in /current. Circa 2006. Stable branch.

2. There's the MPlayer 1.0rc1-1 in /beta. This requires libdca, libdvdcss, libdvdread, and libdvdnav from /beta. Same branch as /current, but with updated DVD libraraies. If you don't play DVDs off of physical media, this branch is probably not an upgrade from #1 above. It's a **big** improvement for DVD playback off of physical media (I'm batting 100%)...

3: The MPlayer 1.1 link here: ftp://ftp.nekochan.net/pub/downloads/co ... 1.1.tar.gz. This is the latest and greatest MPlayer, and requires the libdca, libdvdcss, libdvdread, and libdvdnav from /beta. This is not a .tardist. You need to install this into /opt and run the included shell script.

These can be removed from /beta, as the current packages effectively obsolete them, and are compatible with both the 1.0 and 1.1 branches --

neko_libdvdcss-1.2.9.tardist (replaced by -r1)
neko_libdvdnav-4.2.1.tardist (replaced by -r1)
neko_libdvdread-4.2.1.tardist (replaced by -r1)
neko_libdts-0.0.2.tardist (obsoleted by libdca, which is compatible with libdts)

If one other person would try this hummer out we could move to /current ... the original was excellent (I use it all the time), this one does not go backwards in any way but adds some features for playing from DVD ....

3: The MPlayer 1.1 link here: ftp://ftp.nekochan.net/pub/downloads/co ... 1.1.tar.gz. This is the latest and greatest MPlayer,

This one also works well as long as you have the above-mentioned prerequisities installed. So far so good.

One question tho - any predictions on the -vo sgi feature ?

It'll be there in the next drop of MPlayer 1.1 which will also be a .tardist. I just didn't prioritize this becase I wanted a working 'proof of concept' build and the GL2 renderer was good enough for this.

We should already have the 3+ person consensus. This latest drop just added the speex dependency.

With better threading support ?


I didn't even see this...

On the 1.1 branch, you can try runnng it with -lavdopts threads=8 on 480p h.264 content (make sure you have the libx264 from /beta installed)...

"torrent"-type 480p content is _almost_ passible on my 2x600 Octane. Really -----> <----- this close (the audio gets out of sync with the video, but is otherwise passible). I watched the first two chapters of the Hobbit in 480p on the Octane, with sync issues. I bet a fast Fuel or Tezro could pull this off.

Hmm, the .tardist in /beta should repace the current MPlayer cleanly... It does @ my site at least.

Will look into this.

Don't spend too much time on that ... I probaly borked it in some way, forcing it to do something it didn't want. Or maybe that was a leftover from years ago, when MPlayer was new. This installation is ten years old ...

I have it working now --

gonna try to make a .tardist in the next day or two (depending on schedule). I don't want to promise anything as I've botched that on the last two attempts....

But it always gets into /incomming......

Just an update on this --

I'm now an "official" MPlayer dev., so hopefully the IRIX port can mirror the official releases going forward. There's been alot of "drug dealing" going on behind the scenes, and this has taken up some time -- right now, there's one person (or one and a half ppl.), agnosticising the MIPS assembler stuff in the newer libavcodec and x264. It's really about 90% there.

Just hang on a bit longer -- it's gonna happen... Haven't let you guyz wrong yet...
