Posted by the MPlayer 1.3.0 'worksforme' is out. Less than a month after 1.2.1, we're at it again.
Gtalk Chatting. MPlayer 1.3.0 is compatible with the FFmpeg 3.0.x releases and (at the time of writing) with FFmpeg git. The tarball already includes a copy of FFmpeg 3.0, so you don't need to fetch it separately. This release brings you some new codecs and formats, a lot of fixes, and many cleanups. It also includes all the enhancements and speed-ups from FFmpeg; check their changelog if you are curious about the details. In addition to these, there were a lot of updates to accommodate the API changes made in FFmpeg. Some were simple renames, but others were quite invasive. None of them should have a user-visible effect, except maybe for some corner-cases in the channel order for multichannel files.
If you see any regression from the previous releases, please report it on the mailing list or use our. So, which version should you use? Try this simple test. • 1 Do you compile your own MPlayer? • If no, go to 5. • 2 Do you want to use a system-wide copy of FFmpeg?
M-Player is a solid, if not exciting, MP3 and WMA player. It's intuitive in its format and has most of the features one would expect of an audio player. MPlayer's services are operational again. We were unable to move the physical server at this time, but the data has arrived at our new host safely. Status: SVN - UP.
• If no, go to 4. • 3 Which version of FFmpeg do you have? • If it's 2.8.x, use MPlayer 1.2.x • If it's 3.0.x, use MPlayer 1.3.x • If you have an older version, you are on your own. Sorry • If you have a newer version, can I borrow your time machine? • 4 Do you want the latest and greatest features? • If yes, use MPlayer SVN and FFmpeg git. • If no (why?), use 1.3.x unless you have a good reason to stay on 1.2.x.
• 5 You still have some options! • Use the version packaged by your distribution. • Look for a package on our. • Look for an updated package in the unofficial repositories for you distribution. Starting from this release, MPlayer depends also on libswresample (part of FFmpeg); the library is autodetected, and compilation will fail without it. MPlayer 1.3.0 can be downloaded by,,.

MPlayer 1.2.1 is a bugfix release from the 1.2 branch. If you're using MPlayer 1.2 you are encouraged to upgrade. MPlayer 1.2.1 fixes many crashes with fuzzed files, squashes many bugs and includes some compatibility enhancements.
A lot of bugs are fixed also in FFmpeg, you can check their changelog for details. It's also easier to build this release with a system-wide version of FFmpeg, since you don't need to copy internal FFmpeg headers anymore.
Mplayer 1.2.1 is compatible with the FFmpeg 2.8.x releases. The tarball includes a copy of FFmpeg 2.8.5 (the latest at this date), so you don't need to fetch it separately. Just like 1.2, this version will not work with current FFmpeg master branch, nor with the upcoming FFmpeg 2. Dropbox Latest Version more. 9 (or 3.0, or whatever name will be chosen).
If you need to work with the latest FFmpeg, please use svn version. If you're following the development from svn HEAD you can ignore this; all the bug fixes are also included in the development version. MPlayer 1.2.1 can be downloaded by,, or xz MD5SUM: 7fed0b4e306074e2cac246 xz SHA1SUM: cf988d8c7fe7bcf15a48970f0cf9e46837d78e1b gz MD5SUM: 6fdf47c76986d91a405b59e265eaf5bc gz SHA1SUM: 0ca56c8176a55fb6a51dffeb607d0e1e31521346.
Posted by the FrameCounter Our latest release was getting stale, so it's time to make a new one. Mplayer 1.2 is compatible with the recent FFmpeg 2.8 release. The tarball already includes a copy of FFmpeg, so you don't need to fetch it separately. Due to some big API changes coming to FFmpeg, this release will not work with new FFmpeg master branch, nor with future FFmpeg releases. If you want to follow the latest improvements in MPlayer and FFmpeg, you are strongly encouraged to use Subversion HEAD and benefit from the latest features and bug fixes. You know how to do it. Because you aren't using a 3 years old release, hopefully.
If you are, read on and find out what you missed! VDPAU hardware accelerated decoding now works for HEVC (if your card and driver supports it).
Hardware accelerated decoding is now supported also on Os X via VDA. VAAPI is still unsupported, but you can use it via VDPAU wrapper at least for H.264. A lot of new codecs, thanks to FFmpeg. The list includes HEVC, VP9 and Prores; Opus, improved AAC and DTS decoders; WebP and JPEG2000; and many, many others. Also rtsp streaming now uses FFmpeg by default, so you don't need any additional library to use it.
For the full list of improvements and bugfixes check the FFmpeg Changelog (note: not all features are available through MPlayer at the moment, especially filters). Many GUI improvements, both in functionality (eg. TV and DVB support) and appearance.
