mplayer pacman install problem

after typing:

pacman -S mplayer

everything went fine, but I can't get mplayer to open... for example- 'exec mplayer' simply closes the terminal window

is there something else i need to install to get it working?

thanks-o!

Re: mplayer pacman install problem

mplayer is a commandline program.
if you want a gui to come up, run gmplayer.

gmplayer & exit will close the window down once gmplayer is brought up..
