str4y. I think mplayer-ffmpeg-gnome-mplayer-gecko-mediaplayer consists of good combo.
Gecko-mediaplayer can be compiled without libmusicbrainz support.
Gecko-mediaplayer as pet is 200 K, Gnome-mplayer 144 K. They are frontends for mplayer. I think good mplayer-ffmpeg compile really makes the distro.
I would like to hear about better mplayer frontends. I have checked several times the mplayer pages but I havent found any better.
VLC, Smplayer, Umplayer are all really good mediaplayers. But they drag Qt4 libs with them. The size is measured in tens of megabytes. You just cant include them in base distro. If you want to keep the distro size small enough to be booted in 256 Mb RAM.

Anyway, I would like to hear of better candidates.....

Brown Mouse. Thanks for the feedback. Don't use the Slacko pets. This pet of Iron 13 is getting along with Seamonkey for me, and doesn't seem to have the Loading problem.

No, this is still not right. They will work together unless you uninstall Iron-13, then you will get the same error.

Subject description: mediaplayer

I really hate to be posting with a negative comment, because overall my sentiments are extreme thanks and gratitiude for all the hard work put in to Puppy. But I was really hoping it would get figured out that gnome-mplayer is a weak choice. Perhaps its small binary size is the attraction, but IMHO the media player of a distro is quite huge as re how newcomers are going to be making 1st impressions. Haven't checked in the latest version (which is 1.0.4 btw, just checking code.google-- unsure if the mentioned bug got fixed) but when I tried it out in 525, I found it particularly annoying that it went out on the web to get "Cover Art" somewhere.. (I had no way of knowing where at the time, and there was no warning.. I see at its homepage that it's Amazon)..
PROBLEM being, it pulled up some ghastly image with the scrawl "Off the Hook" on it, because I was playing my local mp3 file which was "Off the Hook" show from WBAI.org .. so now I presume the RIAA has my IP in a database as listening to a copy of some braindead rap song that I didn't pay for. (No, I don't inherently trust Amazon.)
Plus, there're other ways in which I find it clunky but haven't had the time to thoroughly document as I'd hoped. I *did* glean from the CLI help that one can turn off the Cover Art b.s. with an option at the cmd line.. one would hope that option would be the default in Puppy as opposed to gnome-mplayer's default, which is to interact with Amazon without warning.

But thanks again guys-- I'll focus my .pet projects, which are of possible interest to the community, on this particular Puppy, as it seems to be the major release for the foreseeable while..

I'm not going to be of much help here and I should have taken a snapshot but each time after installing the Chromium 15 Slacko .pet then starting either Firefox,Seamonkey or Thunderbird,I got an error message(cant recall what it said).I didn't take the matter further because I then decided I maybe shouldn't have installed a Slacko .pet into Lucid.At which point I then reverted to a backup savefile.

Hey, check this out. It looks like the pets I made for Slacko work better in Lucid than the pets I made for Lucid. Chromium 15, Google Chrome 13, and Iron 13 seem to work without the "pinwheel of death" (the problem where they get stuck Loading--especially when the system is first started). If this pans out, I will update the PPM.

I had problems the other day when installing a Chromium 15 Slacko .pet in 528.For some reason after install,it screwed Firefox,Seamonkey and Thunderbird up.

I made some Slacko pets that gave me a clue about Chromium 15, Iron 13 and Google Chrome 13 on Lucid. Keep your fingers crossed.

An Iron 13 pet for Lucid 5.2.8 is a few messages below.

Don't use the Slacko pets.

works perfectly on my 1st gen intel i5 system using a lin'n'win frugal install. Its damn near instant at executing most things!
I successfully upgraded the package manager list (involving a 5minute wait as a matrix style rain of package checks filled the terminal!) then installed python and openshot, edited some hd cam footage and exported it as well as installing firefox, all before I had rebooted to create a save file.
Very solid, fantastic work!
It even set up my intelpro ethernet which has defeated nearly every other puppy Very Happy

Now I am at 1.3.23 and still never had a problem to find wine in the menu's of any puppy included the latest ones.
green_dome is the person who compiles wine and his latest is 1.3.25.
Winehq has announced 1.3.26, so green_dome will shortly announce it.

The Wine thread of green_dome can be easily found by searching on his name with the puppy search link in my thread.

Now for your problem, it is better to post it the users forum, as I don't think it's a lucid 5.2.8 issue.


Speaking about Wine,I'd been having a few problems with the version that is in Quickpet 1.3.13.I couldn't get it to install Gecko properly so after several failed attempts tried version 1.3.25 and so far all seems to work.
