Subject description: Problem with mplayer crashing during use
 

Okay, if this has been discussed, I didn't see it and I hope I'm putting the question in the right place.

When playing video files of various formats (wanted to be sure it wasn't a single file or format), mplayer crashes. The file will open and play for 1 sec to a few minutes, but then crash.

I'm using a tweaked version of Pizzapup on a Dell CPx laptop (650MHz/512MB) and so far everything else works fine. If I can get this to work I can remaster. Help!

Thanks,
SullySAT

PostPosted: Tue 25 Dec 2007, 05:01    Post subject: mplayer 1.0.rc1 great on Dell CPx with Puppy version 2.17.1  

Well, one of the two machines I personally use with Puppy Linux is also an old Dell CPx laptop (450MHz, 256 MByte RAM). I love that old machine.

I much prefer using mplayer on it, at least compared to gxine (I haven't tried anything else though). Plays DVD's perfectly and smoothly (with DMA enabled, xv accelerated video mode, and a suitable buffer delay or whatever it is called; sorry don't have the machine handy at the moment).

However, I use tempestuous's more recent compilation of mplayer, which I originally had some problems with (due to my own stupidity, problems which were discussed and resolved here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=20960&search_id=693844228

As tempestuous says there:
=============
The most recent version(s) of MPlayer is 1.0rc1, located here -
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Multimedia/Mplayer-1.0rc1/
This version has many advanced features, as explained here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13216
=============

However, I did used to use VLC on the same CPx machine when it originally had windows 98SE on it (or maybe it was win2k, I can't quite remember...), and it certainly was very good.

Mind you, I should also mention, I've been using Puppy version 2.17.1 so I don't know what difference there might be with Pizzapup.

That's interesting. I didn't realise you could play videos in XMMS. What formats can it play?

What I've seen about XMMS is that you can get plugins that allow XMMS to play videos also you can get Xmms plugins to use mplayer as a plugin for video.
I'm still tryiing to work it out, Smile when i have some spare time

I have tried the Xmms-MPlayer plugin, and advise against it. Details here -

I remember that some people had issues with the Mplayer package I used, but I don't think they could get it running at all, so it's probably a different problem. For them, I had created this dotpup to change mplayer with a slightly different one.
http://www.browserloadofcoolness.com/software/puppy/dotpups/REPLACER_mplayer-108.pup

And just to head off any confusion, Pizzapup 3.0 is based on Puppy 2.12, and Pizzapup 3.0.1 is based on Puppy 2.14. I numbered it based on it's being the third Pizzapup, rather than based on what Puppy was used.
