Hi Puppyians

I'm use Slacko 64 bit, dual install with an HDMI output to my Bravia TV

Is there any way to play x265 aka HEVC media without having to compile something yet?

Yes, I've searched this wonderful forum and there is plenty of advice but they all suggest compiling, which I've never been able to do. I did download mplayer source code but when I typed "make" , puppy just told me "command not found".

I've tried to download new vlc files, Slacko doesn't seem keen on VLC. I can't even get a GUI.

I believe x265 will become the next big codec so if there's a .pet, sfs or .deb available which will provide access and save me loading Windows, I'd be mightily grateful.

Keep puppying,
Greg

To go against your request, I found the only way to play x265 was to compile mplayer, which I had success doing.

FYI, in case you don't have the full instructions, this is how I did it.

Download DEVX and kernel source SFS files and load them.

Download the source file for mplayer.

Extract the file into a folder. Navigate to that folder, right click in empty space in the folder, select "Window" -> "Terminal here"

In the terminal, start with
Code:
./configure


Once that is done, which can take a while, then run
Code:
make


Then
Code:
make install


For me, that worked. If that is what you did, I'm outta ideas, if it isn't, give it a whirl.

Sorry if I'm being dumb - I have searched - where did you download those particular sfs files from?

Which Slacko 64 bit are you using? Version 6.30 or the latest 6.32?

6.30 devx is here:

http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/puppy-slacko-6.3.0/64/devx_slacko64_6.3.0.sfs

and 6.32 devx is here:

http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/puppy-slacko-6.3.2/64/devx_slacko64_6.3.2.sfs

You can find them in the package manager under SFS button too

I would send you the mplayer-1.3 I compiled (from the June 8th snapshot) but it's for Slacko 32-bit. It's 5.8MB squashed.

You should be able to play x265 vids by installing this:

For slackware 14.0 (slacko version ???)
http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware64-14.0/patches/packages/MPlayer-1.2_20160125-x86_64-1_slack14.0.txz

For slackware 14.1 (latest slacko)

Thank you for all the help. I did install Kodi but I found it to be too similar to Windows Media Centre on the xbox for my tastes, so I installed your mplayer version, p310don. To get a graphical front end in installed smplayer for the repos, taking care to install just the front end and no any dependencies that overwrite the mplayer version. All working well.
