Videothumbnailer how to associate it with mplayer?

I downloaded Videothumbnailer on osdepot and it works I can see the video thumbnails and I can also move in the frames but when he uses the space bar to see the video it gives me an outpot window that tells me:
"appdir: mplayer program not found"

I asked for help on osdepot and the author replied:
The programm uses the OS appdir: to run mplayer.
So you must run mplayer once before to get it added in the appdir.

Then "appdir: mplayer" should start mplayer.

but i can't figure out how to do it i have always used mickjt-mplayer-nonaltivec and associated with many programs i use.
can anyone help me i can't get it to work with Videothumbnailer?

Thanks once again for any suggestions.

That will only work if you rename the program.

No programs are actually in APPDIR:
when you run the program the OS will crate a soft link to the program you started, the soft link points to the program.

Thanks now it works

However i have this problem
not having a real graphics card I have to use the -vo sdl option otherwise mplayer crashes
is there any solution for this?

any other application I use with mplayer in .ini files for example and associated with -vo sdl would otherwise crash

Thanks again.

Do you have the same problem with liveforit-mplayer, mikejt might changed something, there should be code prohibiting just that.

Yes, I guess the emulator telling mplayer it can do things it can’t, my guess is that Tony will need to implement diver with YUV422 support for WINUAE.

Anyway, in config file for mplayer, you should be able to set default video output.

Unfortunately it seems to have the same problem without the -vo sdl option the application crashes.
The only way maybe is that Videothumbnailer would have to have an .ini file to be able to configure it with the -vo sdl option.
Pity I was looking for an application for a long time to see video previews

It is long time ago i wrote videothumbnailer, but i can look into your problem.
Think solong nobody use it ;).

Not to difficult to solve.
I have think of a little update to use alternative also Emotion as player.
So you can then choose the player and enter also the right commando to run it.

Would be great
I've been looking for an application like this for a long time.
And even if I use a non-real amiga I still really like using amigaos.
and thanks again for your application working very well
with emotion it would be equally perfect

Thank you very much.

Unfortunately even if the winuae emulation with 4.1 works well
Toni doesn't seem interested in making major improvements at the moment.

I found with the 4.1 an evolved amigaos and fun to use.
As I did with the 3.xx workbench many years ago.

Too bad only for the cost of the real machines I would buy one but the costs are very high.
Otherwise it remains a system that completely recreates the amiga spirit of many years ago

Likewise choose simple the Emotion programm with the filerequester in the settings menu.
And after that leave the arg requester empty.

But when you like edit the config.cfg file you must enter in the first the programm with path and behind the coma the args.

Like:
appdir:emotion,

Behind the "," nothing for no args.

I put a small video for the test
I also tried the EVO theme by modifying it a bit.
I work on the 4.1 emulation I think I have achieved good results.
Excluding the video card.
now I have to define all the graphics.

This reminds me a lot when I used my real Amiga years ago
Amiga remains a great system and I love using it.
