We want to select a version from the "HTTP" column. The choices in the columns reflect ways of downloading the files - it is not necessary to understand the difference between HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and BT (Bittorrent) - just choose the 'HTTP' column.
Have anyone experienced installing mplayer on Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.3)?I have stuck for a whole day trying everything from install using source code, download the dmg and extract the binary inside. But none works.
Edited:Sorry for not clarifying this question from beginningRandolph Potter has shown me that OSX Extended MPlayer works.In fact, what I want is the command line version of mplayer.I can install it on Mac OS X 10.5.8, but not on 10.6.3
I go to macports.org official site and search for mplayer inside available ports. I see there are two packages: mplayer cannot be installed on 10.6.x but mplayer-devel can. I installed it and be able to do all of the operation. Thanks you guy for sharing.
Freeware programs can be downloaded used free of charge and without any time limitations. Freeware products can be used free of charge for both personal and professional (commercial use).
This license is commonly used for video games and it allows users to download and play the game for free. Basically, a product is offered Free to Play (Freemium) and the user can decide if he wants to pay the money (Premium) for additional features, services, virtual or physical goods that expand the functionality of the game. In some cases, ads may be show to the users.
This software is no longer available for the download. This could be due to the program being discontinued, having a security issue or for other reasons.
this document pertains primarily to unix (mac os x, linux, etc) users, though you can use mplayer under windows, too. in fact, it comes with anri - look under c:\programs\anri_whatever\ for mplayer.exe.
once you have it in your applications folder then you can invoke it via the command line (terminal) too. normally mplayer is really hard to use from the command line but for what we are doing it won't be bad.
first line is just the path to mplayer. if you're on a mac and put mplayer os x extended in your applications folder then it should be identical for you, can just copy and paste. otherwise you'll need to adjust it to point to your mplayer binary executable.
after -dumpstream -dumpfile is the path to the new file you are making with the part of the run cut out. here i put it on my desktop and call it myrun.vob. then you can just upload that to youtube or whatever when mplayer finishes.
Download SMPlayer for free A quick look at SMPlayerSMPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux withbuilt-in codecs that can play virtually all video and audio formats. Itdoesn't need any external codecs. Just install SMPlayer and you'll be ableto play all formats without the hassle to find and install codec packs.One of the most interesting features of SMPlayer: it remembers thesettings of all files you play. So you start to watch a movie but youhave to leave... don't worry, when you open that movie again it will beresumed at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audiotrack, subtitles, volume...SMPlayer is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the award-winningMPlayer, which is capable of playing almost all known video and audioformats. But apart from providing access for the most common anduseful options of MPlayer, SMPlayer adds other interesting features like thepossibility to play Youtube videos or download subtitles.Play all media formatsSMPlayer supports the most known formats and codecs:avi, mp4, mkv, mpeg, mov, divx, h.264... you canplay all of them, thanks to its built-in codecs.You don't need to find and install third party codecs. See a list of all supported formats
While I had no problem compiling it, I did have a problem presenting it since Adobe Acrobat Reader required to download an additional media player (under Mac OS) in order to play the media file embedded in the PDF file. Under Windows, it got as far as the Windows Media screen, and stopped right there.
When I attempted to download the plug-in that would allow me to play the WMV file on the Mac, I received the following notification stating that the third-party media player required to play the selected media file in my Adobe PDF document isn't available for my system.
To circumvent this problem, I ended up downloading flip4mac, thinking that it will resolve my issue. Acrobat Reader, however, did not recognize the plug-in for QuickTime that allows it to display WMV files.
If you do not want mplayer/mencoder to make use of X11, simply rename /usr/X11/include prior to configure/make (and do not forget to revert the change after the build was successful). If Xcode 4.x is installed, mplayer/mencoder will not link successfully and thus the gcc-4.2/g++-4.2 from Xcode 3.x has to be used to compile and link mplayer/mencoder.
BUT: The resulting ffmpeg/avconv binaries will have a lot more depencies to system libraries, considering that mplayer can also play media files without a GUI and there is also VLC available I personally do not see much point in building ffplay, but in any case, this is how you would do it.
If you have followed the guide, you should have deleted the libxvidcore.4.dylib after compiling and installing xvidcore.This will force the ffmpeg/mplayer/mencoder binary to be linked against the static version of xvidcore.

Forgive me for being an ignoramus. I tried to install git. I only changed the version to a newer one (22.214.171.124) and had to use a .tar.gz as the .tar.bz2 one downloaded into Terminal and froze it. So anyway, it was going well until I got an error. I would appreciate any advice as to what to do next.
I already have a set of shell scripts to automatically build ffmpeg, ffmpeg-libav and mplayer but they are crude and should never see the light of day :)If you are interested please contact me again and I will send them via email to you (or any other interested party).
In order to compile ffmpeg/libav/mplayer you just mount the DMG (which will not be a Ramdisk anymore!) and just proceeed as described in the guide. Once the product is created you can create a new DMG containing everything or you could even compile ffmpeg to a completely different target location and make a DMG out of that. The choices are endless :)
I am aware that using homebrew will provide a working mplayer binary and it will probably be sufficient for the needs of Luk.It would be interesting to know if Luk just wants to be able to play media content (where I would advise using VLC instead) or to decode/encode media content (where I would advise using ffmpeg).
I use mplayer to watch movies/series when watching on a notebook, for instance, or whenever without an external home theater support (rarely have the time though). But mostly I can quickly check reencodings that I perform with either Handbrake or ffmpeg. No other player is that quick or convenient to respond to short and long fast forward/backward (arrows). This way I fly through a material in a matter of seconds, checking subtitle synchronism and successful video/audio rendering. 2b1af7f3a8
