The problem are the frontends. I'd like to have a gtk2 frontend, however unfortunately gxine is unmaintained and totem depends on gnome.
Default xine-ui is plain ugly!

Re: Mplayer - GTK2

I like the xine-ui... use the skin downloader and grab the one with the black background....

and hey, at least it looks batter than gmplayer's menus (I don't use the controls, I use the right-click menus for all interaction... this is why I like xine much better

Re: Mplayer - GTK2

Re: Mplayer - GTK2

Hmm... Mplayer still sucks even after it's gtk2...  I don't really like xine-ui either... totem is nice.. but look at this:

Targets: hal-0.2.97-2 libgsf-1.9.1-1 gnome-desktop-2.8.0-1 nautilus-2.8.1-1
         nautilus-cd-burner-2.8.1-1 libdvdcss-1.2.8-1 libdvdread-0.9.4-2
         libdvdnav-0.1.9-2 faac-1.24-1 faad2-2.0-5 hermes-1.3.3-1
         libmikmod-3.1.11-1 gtk-1.2.10-4 mjpegtools-1.6.2-1 gst-plugins-0.8.5-1
         totem-0.99.19-2

Total Package Size:   11.5 MB

Bah....  GXine would be nice if it was actually maintained...  I guess they all suck, but the least sucky is gmplayer.  Too bad amarok doesn't support video!

Re: Mplayer - GTK2

Maybe gstreamer is going to be a solution.
However, I'm afraid they will go in a direction of being dependant on gnome (right now gstreamer doesn't support everything without gnome; arch package depends on gnome sad.

Maybe he's got one of those trusty old 300MB ones. (Hey, mine still works!)

Re: Mplayer - GTK2

xine is good but its look is very ugly, however mplayer is good and has a very nice look!

IMHO, i prefer mplayer against gtk1 wink

It may not apply to you, but some people (including me) don't want to have junk on their harddrive no matter how less space it takes. I don't want gnome parts to lay around. Please, do not impose on anybody installing this 11MB.

Btw seems KDE has nice frontend to mplayer (KMPlayer). This is why I requested (in mplayer gtk2 thread) to split gmplayer to other package - I don't want to have junk I never use.

Re: Mplayer - GTK2

One thing I don't like about xine: I takes HUGE amounts  of memory.
I typed "grep Data /proc/`pidof xine`/status" and got 160868 kB.
I typed "grep Data /proc/`pidof gmplayer`/status" and got 7380 kB.

there is a feature request for amarok to use mplayer as backend i posted to http://bugs.kde.org/

unfortunately, the http://bugs.kde.org/ is down now (Too many connections at globals.pl line 140.), so i cannot give you the link :-(

also the authors of amarok do not seem to like the idea to add video playing to amarok :-(

Re: Mplayer - GTK2

Seems like kaffeine is going to be my favourite media player...
It uses xine-lib and kde.

This is off-topic, but while reading this thread I think I chose sides in the debate by who had the cutest avatar.

What error do you get?
EDIT: Maybe the error is in the cut and paste.  Two lines are wrapped:
1. the source line
2. the line that starts with mv $startdir/src/fonts ...

Re: Mplayer - GTK2

I wrote a frontend for mplayer a while back, there was some nasty memoryleaks in it but I think it should be allright now, It's running mplayer in slavemode like mplayer-plugin so it's written in pure Python,

pkgname=lazy-player
pkgver=0.1
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="A simple PyGTK frontend for mplayer."
url=""
depends=("pygtk" "mplayer")
source=("http://xerxes2.1go.dk/lazy-player-0.1.tar.gz")
md5sums=("63c4411e8fd5920f34ce87b573f82b81")

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/bin
  mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/lazy_player
  mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/share/lazy-player
  install -m 755 lazy-player $startdir/pkg/usr/bin
  install -m 755 settings.py $startdir/pkg/usr/share/lazy-player
  install -m 755 gtk_main.py $startdir/pkg/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/lazy_player
  install -m 755 fileselect.py $startdir/pkg/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/lazy_player
  install -m 755 __init__.py $startdir/pkg/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/lazy_player
 }

arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
