Software News

a new version of mplayer is ready to download
These are the main changes between the last version

MPlayer 1.0rc3 for AmigaOS4 01-04-2009
* Should be really faster than previous version (due a faster ffmpeg.. )
* Fixed fullscreen mouse pointer hide/show when click the mouse

* Now if you press "c"..
* Fixed Fullscreen play
* Updated to the mplayer last version
* Fixed Arexx port. Now the Daniel GUI should work ok
- Thanks to Fab for his Morphos port of Mplayer that is a lot enhanced and faster.. :)

there is also a new dvdnav:// dvd menu functionality but i suggest you to use the the old dvd:// method

Download here

 Re: A new version of MPlayer is available to download
that's strange. it doesn't happens here on my A1
Where you run it? SAM?

EDIT:
by the way.. why you lower the stack so much?
mplayer has a stack cookie into its code

Thanks making this version available ! But I don't understand if this version is faster why I got worse result in the benchmark test ?

(Edit: Something I said originally was related to settings instead of the mplayer itself.)

Huge thanks!
Works well so far. No fullscreen-from-menu bug here (A1G4, OS4.1, radeon9000pro).

 Re: A new version of MPlayer is available to download
and keep in mind that this is a generic version without altivec since the last mplayer version doesn't compile when altivec is active

@TSK:

I would take the benchmarking with a pinch or to of salt:

new version:
VC: 2.237s VO: 1.796s A: 0.490s Sys: 38.902s = 43.425s

leitmotiv version:
VC: 3.531s VO: 0.014s A: 0.437s Sys: 38.302s = 42.284s

Afaiu, video codec(vc) is more efficient in the new version, but the differenc in "VO" (video output?) raises some suspicions here (two orders of magnitude).

I guess so too. But benchmarking was used to bash AOS4 in AmigaWorld short time ago. Which file you got those results with ?

Just a suggestion, avoid enabling osd menu by default in config file.

It can be nice, but even when it's not visible, it still impacts the performance a bit.

 Re: A new version of MPlayer is available to download
Great update!

'p' Now works properly (previous versions would only pause for about a second)

's' Now saves a screenshot to RAM.

And .flv files are synched much better now.

Thanks!

peg2 / os4.1. Try for sure set from fullscreen to window mode more than 2 times (like 5-6 times). If no bug for you - for sure related to peg2 version of OS or some bad libs for me ? (which ones?)

 Re: A new version of MPlayer is available to download
@afxgroup, i tried without descriasing of stack, and have the same freeze. (after 3 times of switching).

After all i reboot, and try it again - freeze after 1 times. (i.e. sometime i can toggle 2-3 times beetween fulll-screen/window, sometime only one)

Here is a video to show how bug looks like:

Please could you forward me [via PM] the source once you'll manage to fix the altivec compile? I have been working on an altivec version of mencoder, but I have been unsuccessful so far.

Thanks

@kas1e
I tried on my A1XE and I've got no problem at all switching to/from fullscreen (in fact I even did it several times because I was playing with the 'Aspect' preferences).

@afxgroup
I just did a few test last night but it seems that on some circumstances MPlayer is opening a shell window (without writing into it) when it's launched from the "execute command" of the WB (Amiga-e shortcut). I'll try to find the reproducable steps, but it was when activating the OSD...

@all
must to say, that on 1ghz nothink about slowing down of vids with meny or without.

@afxgroup
btw, it's possible to add the same almost default mplayer gui (i mean gmplayer, because this is, sort of, the default front-end), as Fab do for mos version ? Gui itself are pretty stlilish, elegant, and easy for end users (never like this boring and not so logical gui from onyxsoft).

@abalaban
hm.. looks like peg2 only related ? need to ask someone else with peg2 for tests ..

works great on Pegasos2/OS4.1 and the GUI. Previous versions used to crash here.

@afxgroup, yep, i mean that Daniel one no so good as mos one. Sadly that is mui4 only ..

@SoundSquare
pretty strange.. for you no problems with it, and with @beeps@ in SDl apps. Looks like our pegs2 or os4.1 are diferent ? Your os4.1 are public one ? Which revision of peg2 do you have ?

And why is MUI4 not compatible with 3 ? Everything should be backwards compatible. (But this discussion really doesn't belong to here anyway.)

 Re: A new version of MPlayer is available to download
MUI is compatible with 3.x (except for some apps that were peeking/poking deep internals). But it also adds and extends some classes methods/attributes which of course won't work or show on previous releases.

Anyway, Deadwood ported that GUI to AROS/Zune without too much trouble (and zune isn't even totally 3.x-compliant), but it certainly needs some modifications in playlist for instance (mui4 lists were greatly improved), as well as an alpha-aware dtpic.mui for controls (else it will work, but look rather ugly with a white bg :)).
