How To Build Uoti's git MPlayer Branch on Linux

Recommended Posts

I have written a step by step guide on how to build Uoti's git MPlayer branch on Mandriva and Ubuntu from source.

This fork of mplayer by one of the main developers is the preferred version to use, since it contains many enhanchements that are missing from the official branch.

 

The guide is here:

http://www.linuxtech.net/tips+tricks/How_To_Build_Uotis_git_MPlayer_Branch.html

 

It should be easy enough to follow even if you have never built anything from source before.

 

Let me know if anything is unclear.

Would I have have to remove the mplayer I have installed in order to do this build?

 

Not at all, as I say in the end of the guide you could place the new binary in /usr/local/bin and then either run it with /usr/local/bin/mplayer explicitly, or make sure /usr/local/bin is before /usr/bin in your PATH environment variable so that Linux will use the new binary automatically instead of the old one.

Thanks. I know you mentioned about putting the new binary in a certain location, so when I asked the question, I was sure of the answer. But for a guy that messes up things like me, it's better to ask that REALLY mess things up! :lol2:
