This is nice and small, but has a proper drag-and-droppable playlist, a "single instance" option, and all sorts of other good stuff.
It's made by the same guy as mplayerplugin, and he's very responsive to bug-reports and feature requests.
[url]code.google.com/p/gnome-mplayer[/url]

It has a sister program to replace mplayerplugin, but I haven't compiled that.

Requires Mplayer - I recommend Tempestuous' package from http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=26511 (Don't forget the mplayer-extra-libs package).
Its a pity we don't have a good package with shared ffmpeg Sad

Also requires dbus:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=7130
After installing these, run
Code:
dbus-uuidgen > /var/lib/dbus/machine-id


And libxcb (At least in Puppy 4.x):

Thanks for making this Disciple! I'm kinda anxious now to try this out and see just how far along he's progressed with this. Seems so the last time I'd tried this was... hmm... a little over a year and a half ago when I was running sidux as I'd gotten it from the repo there. Wasn't a bad little media player shell back then.

I really appreciate these programmes you bring us, you and others, plus the concise manner in which you personally detail the different steps for installation and use that even someone like me who has problems with directions can easily follow. I appreciate this and don't often stop to thank any of you nearly enough for how you brighten my day. Smile

So thanks my fellow Puppian Friend! Keep up the great work that you do and don't change, eh?

Amicalement/Cheers,

Eyes-Only

Just me again Disciple. Wink But I wanted to give you an update and I've been told that it's best to do a new post than to edit your prior post? Something about the "original poster" receives the notice faster as there isn't one given in an edit I guess? I dunno...

Anywho... The install went slick! In fact, everything did! Smile and I was up and playing all my files in no time flat afterwards. The bloke has made a definite amount of progress it would seem since the last time I had this installed in sidux as it ran smoothly, took up almost no RAM on my machine worth speaking about, and only 1% on the CPU cycles.

What a winner this beautiful programme is! Definitely leagues above MPlayer itself for sure!

Thanks once again for your work and dedication mate! Thumbs up for a beautiful programme well done!

Cheers,

Eyes-Only

- Size (it is MUCH smaller with shared ffmpeg).
- All the main features working, including dvdnav and hopefully vcd support.
- Successfully compiled with whatever the options required to make it work on different CPUs. I think Tempestuous mentioned them somewhere - I can look if you're wanting to have a go at making one.

From memory Barry's official package is good except it doesn't work on Pentium 2s or I think any of the older AMD CPUs. There might be something else missing like dvdnav or vcd support though - I can't remember.
