Flagged out of date already, expect it shortly.

(BTW, how does mplayer-plugin manage to use unthemed GTK1 widgets even when GTK1 is not installed?)

I know, the progress bar too... But if the buttons aren't GTK1, they sure look like GTK1's default theme.

It's an official mplayer release, and it will be available in the current repo whenever the devs get around to it.

It's up to you. In general, it's better to use actual releases. However, I will continue to maintain mplayer-svn (formerly mplayer-cvs) in the AUR for anyone who has to have the latest code.

Weird, the GTK2 default is beige not gray... And they should pick up the theme I'm using. Don't really know what's going there.

Re: New MPlayer 1.0pre8 is out

by the way, dvd menus are not supported yet. it was mentioned as an experimental feature for upcoming versions of mplayer.

PS: Do you know if this feature is enabled in the latest SVN revisions?

Thanks for that, sh__. I've incorporated it into the mplayer-svn PKGBUILD, and it's building now. Assuming the build goes OK, I'll be looking for testers, because I don't have a DVD drive. If testing is OK, it will go in the AUR.

<edit>
As this is getting a wee bit OT, I've started a new thread here.

Remember kids, recompiling mplayer for your system is suggested if you want the best performance out of it.  It saves me a decent amount of cpu.

is compiling using the PKGBUILD from AUR enough, or do i need to change something in the PKGBUILD to compile it specifically for my system? im using a PIII 800MHZ.

You don't have to change anything - it checks your CPU type automagically.
