MPlayer-extra-libs.pet

It is packaged wrong.
The symlinks in /usr/X11R7/lib point to a nonexistent folder.

I attach a pet, where I corrected them.

Ah yes! Thanks Mark. I have attached your fixed dotpet to the first post.
I created the original dotpet in the early days of Puppy4.0 alphas, when I was forced to stop using emelFM and upgrade to emelFM2 to be compatible with Puppy 4.0's GTK2. Early versions of emelFM2 failed to copy symlinks properly.

I have created a pet, that should include all required files for Puppy 4.12.

To avoid conflicts with other libraries, they are installed to
/usr/local/MPlayer/libs1rc2/

I renamed mplayer to mplayer.bin and added startscripts, that "include" those libs.
These libs are included:

drvc.so
libamrnb.la
libamrnb.so
libamrnb.so.3
libamrnb.so.3.0.0
libamrwb.la
libamrwb.so
libamrwb.so.3
libamrwb.so.3.0.0
libdvdcss.la
libdvdcss.so
libdvdcss.so.2
libdvdcss.so.2.0.8
libdvdnav.la
libdvdnavmini.la
libdvdnavmini.so
libdvdnavmini.so.4
libdvdnavmini.so.4.1.1
libdvdnav.so
libdvdnav.so.4
libdvdnav.so.4.1.1
libdvdread.la
libdvdread.so
libdvdread.so.4
libdvdread.so.4.1.1
libfaac.so
libfaac.so.0
libfaac.so.0.0.0
libGL.so.1
libGL.so.1.2
liblircc.la
liblirc_client.la
liblirc_client.so
liblirc_client.so.0
liblirc_client.so.0.2.0
liblircc.so
liblircc.so.0
liblircc.so.0.0.0
libtheora.a
libtheora.la
libtheora.so
libtheora.so.0
libtheora.so.0.3.2
libx264.so
libx264.so.58
libXvMC.so.1
libXvMC.so.1.0.0
libXvMCW.so.1
libXvMCW.so.1.0.0
libXxf86dga.so.1
libXxf86dga.so.1.0.0

I also uploaded a small utility to use Mplayer as Webcamviewer.
My readme:

This viewer does:
load a compatibility library, so that video4linux2 streams can be used by applications
supporting only video4linux(1) correctly.

Like this Mplayer can be used to display the streams from the webcam drivers for Kernel 2.6.28.5.

Details:

Let me know, if anything misses.
Mark

Mark, it's strange that it's necessary to move the MPlayer libs out of /usr/lib
I presume you are responding to forum member ravensrest's problem when trying to view a webcam with MPlayer.

I just installed MPlayer-1.0rc2.pet with MPlayer-extra-libs.pet, in a fresh boot to the Puppy 4.1.2 liveCD. Video and audio playback is perfect. GMPlayer gui works fine. But I don't have a webcam that I can test with.

Of course, it's possible that there is something different about Puppy 4.2? I can't be bothered downloading 4.2 to test.

Regarding libv4l, the download link mentioned here is libv4l-0.1
http://hansdegoede.livejournal.com/3636.html
but that's outdated.
I provided libv4l-0.5.8 a few months ago here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=270689#270689

and I see that the latest version is currently libv4l-0.5.97, from
http://people.atrpms.net/~hdegoede/

No, it is not really necessary.

I moved them for another reason.
I do it like this in newyearspup, it just has a smaller amount of libs, as e.g. xorg is more complete than in Puppy.

Meanwhile, there are a lot of multimedia sfs or pets, or even larger ones, like Gnome.

They sometimes contain own versions of some of these libs.
To avoid conflics by the different versions, I now moved them to an own folder.
So if you install in addition "pup-radio-tv-whatever.pet" with own libtheora and other libs, there is no conflict.
Even after un-installing such a pet, mplayer continues to work.


Thanks for the info about the newer libv4l, I will update the pet this evening.

Mark

Understood.

Regarding libv4l, my version was compiled against Xorg7.3 in Puppy4.1.
But I understand that Newyearspup uses Xorg7.4?
If so, I suggest you compile libv4l against Xorg7.4 for maximum compatibility.

I sometimes have the issue, that movies do not have a correct aspect ratio.
There are black bars on top and bottom, and faces look too wide.

It seems, that the following simple script is a good solution.
No more black bars, the movie is scaled to the physical size of the screen.

It requires xscreensize:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=7845

Code:
#!/bin/bash
x=`xscreensize | cut -d ' ' -f1`
y=`xscreensize | cut -d ' ' -f2`
gmplayer -fs -x $x -y $y "$@"

I downloaded this in 4.1.2 and worked fine. I updated to 4.2 on two laptops and it freezes up. I wish we had a stable version of mplayer.

PostPosted: Mon 15 Jun 2009, 13:00    Post subject: Mplayer with BBC RAM files  

Installed the mplayer apps from the Puppy 4 repository. Corrected the ..jwmrc entry as reported earlier in the thread. Set the run action for the attached file (r4.ram temporary renamed to r4.tif as ram extensions are not allowed for attachments on this forum!) to:
Code:

gmplayer "$@"


but it did not play the stream. Changed the run action to:

Code:
gmplayer -playlist "$@"


and it now plays the stream all be it with a "invalid chunksize" error (which is reported on the mplayer forums but no solution as far as far II can see..

If the mplayerplugin is used on a embedded link in a web page to a RAM stream I do not get the error.

The version of MPlayer from the official repository is somewhat different to the version which is the subject of this forum thread.
The repository version does not have all of the advanced features listed in the first post.

I missed what the advance features were. I think they are mainly DVD or VideoCD related which I don't need on my EeePC901 as it does not have an optical drive.

Well I never new that! Thanks Smile

BTW No offense "offence" should be "offense"!

No, that word is indicated as misspelled only by US-English spell checkers.
In English, it's correct.
Similarly, I continue to use "specialise", not "specialize".

No offence taken!

In fact, it's worth checking this. Because if your Xorg driver is "vesa" that would explain your poor video playback performance.
Please see my comments about DVD playback performance here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=196824#196824
Your system is slightly better than the minimum requirements for DVD playback.
Thanx, mate, I'm sorry, the DVD I tried with had some faults, wouldn't play normally in gxine, nor mplayer, in puppy (WinXP, PoerDVD is more forgiving though, I probably haven't learned all the switches, though). Retrying in 214R and 214X4 another DVD worked perfectly Smile

Hi guys, just made mplayer .pet package from: MPlayer SVN-r29333-4.2.2 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team
Tested it on 4.2.1, where it was installed, seems good. Dunno if it is perfect (this is my first .pet Smile ). xorg_dri_full is installed in the system. Link is here:
