"The mplayer2 project is an advanced general-purpose video player. A fork of the original MPlayer project it contains significant further development and supports a number of features not available in other Unix players."

Homepage: http://www.mplayer2.org/
Comparison with MPlayer: http://www.mplayer2.org/comparison.html
Gentoo bug: https://bugs.gentoo.org/312295
Git: http://git.mplayer2.org/mplayer2/ http://git.mplayer2.org/mplayer2-build/
Git mirror: http://repo.or.cz/w/mplayer.git http://repo.or.cz/w/mplayer-build.git

Noticeable features:
1) ffmpeg-mt (Multithreaded) - plays 1080p fine at nvidia ion without vpdau.
2) pause video, change volume or any other settings and it will stay paused.
3) matroska ordered chapters, external chapters (Many anime torrents use it.)
4) ability to build with shared ffmpeg libraries.


Update 1
In official overlay now: http://gitorious.org/gentoo-multimedia/gentoo-multimedia/trees/master/media-video/mplayer2
if you want it as the only mplayer in system, use smplayer from same overlay, kde-base/mplayerthumbs now by default uses phonon, disable 'mplayer' USE.
Update 2
http://www.mplayer2.org/ is official website now, 2.0-rc2 was released, renamed
package to mplayer2.

This doesn't build without an x264-git ebuild in your tree, where'd you get that?

For building you can:
1) Use ebuild http://pub.nikoli.msk.ru/portage-overlay/media-libs/x264-git/x264-git-9999.ebuild
2) Change x264suf="-git" to x264suf="" in mplayer-git-9999.ebuild
3) USE="-x264" or USE="-encode" emerge mplayer-git

Moved from Multimedia to Unsupported Software.

Since builds from live repositories may not even compile.

Thank you for that. mplayer-uau totally fixed my issue with dropped frames. I installed smplayer from the multimedia overlay because I'd like to use mplayer-uau exclusively, but I get "mplayer finished unexpectedly" whenever I try to play a video. Could you explain what else I need to do?

Code:
USE="symlink" emerge -v media-video/mplayer-uau

or change path to /usr/bin/mplayer-uau in smplayer settings.

Hey all,
I've been having a lot of trouble getting this working... My friend (via ssh) and I until the wee hours of the morning could not get it past libswscale no matter what we did. Any ideas? It seems to not be linking to that lib. We've even gone into the ebuild and manually installed libswscale.a to/usr/lib64 and it would still fail the overall compile.

I'd really like to have this working. I'd like mplayer to take advantage of all 4 of my Core i5's cores. I don't know if this'll fix it, but mplayer non-MT doesn't seem to like FLAC 5.1 6-channel audio, and I'd rather not use command line arguments each time to get the file playing properly.

This is entirely unrelated to this post, but once I finish here I'm going to try and get it working on OS X. I found a forum where it's being discussed.

Output of compilation attempt (apparently it's too much for a single pastebin):

http://darwinanime.kicks-ass.net/Stuff/mplayer-uau-fail.txt

I know I could have just included the bit where it dies, but I thought having the entire thing would be beneficial.

Thanks,
Shiggitay

Show 'emerge --info mplayer-uau', try building with USE="-custom-cflags -custom-cpuopts". Please also test with USE="-*" and USE="-custom-cflags -custom-cpuopts external-ffmpeg".

I have the same problem.
I tried USE="-custom-cflags -custom-cpuopts".But no luck.

=========================================

update:

I updated ffmpeg to 0.6 and tried USE="-custom-cflags -custom-cpuopts external-ffmpeg".It worked.
Thank you very much,Nikoli.

Shiggity, darrenlee, build problem should be fixed upstream now:

yellowhat,

mplayer2 is not yet in the official portage tree.

You need to install layman and add the multimedia overlay to your collection. Then
Code:
emerge mplayer2
will install mplayer2 beside mplayer.

So there is no way to choose between mplayer and mplayer2 via virtual package?
Anyone tried mplayer2? Any difference?

mplayer2 feels more fluid when navigating videos, and automatically spreads decoding on available cores.

it also links against its own ffmpeg-mt build, not the system one.

Thanks.

I have another question: is there a gui interface with mplayer2 (especially gtk)? Such as gnome-mplayer?

Changing dependence to mplayer2 in gmusicbrowser and gnome-mplayer worked good.

They stripped out the old gui that mplayer still has. Just use gnome-mplayer if it's gtk that you want, or smplayer if you want a qt frontend.
