./multimedia/mplayer, Fast, cross-platform movie player

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.4nb1, Package name: mplayer-1.4nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

MPlayer is a movie player for LINUX (runs on many other Unices,
and non-x86 CPUs). It plays most MPEG, VOB, AVI, VIVO, ASF/WMV,
QT/MOV, FLI, RM, NuppelVideo, yuv4mpeg, FILM, RoQ files, supported
by many native, XAnim, and Win32 DLL codecs. You can watch VideoCD,
SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, and even DivX movies too. The another big feature
of mplayer is the wide range of supported output drivers. It works
with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, DirectFB, but
you can use GGI and SDL (and this way all their drivers) and some
lowlevel card-specific drivers (for Matrox, 3Dfx, and Radeon) too!
Most of them support software or hardware scaling, so you can
enjoy movies in fullscreen. It also sports nice big antialiased
shaded subtitles (10 supported types) with european/ISO 8859-1,
2 (hungarian, english, czech, etc), cyrillic, korean fonts, and
OSD.

Log message:
mplayer: put back pulseaudio to SUGGESTED_OPTIONS.

- the default audio output driver (in case no -ao option is specified)
  on NetBSD is still oss even if pulseaudio is enabled
- users can change the audio output driver by "-ao pulse" option or
  "ao=pulse" in ~/.mplayer/config file, as they did on 1.3.0 packages
- SDL (which is in current SUGGESTED_OPTIONS) already depends on
  pulseaudio by default

Bump PKGREVISIONs.

Log message:
mencoder, mplayer, gmplayer: use /dev/audio for OSS on NetBSD/OpenBSD.

- See PR/54229 about misuse of NetBSD's /dev/sound for OSS.
- OpenBSD's /dev/sound seems removed since 6.1:
  https://man.openbsd.org/OpenBSD-6.1/audio.4

Bump PKGREVISIONs.
   2019-03-24 21:38:25 by Olaf Seibert | Files touched by this commit (4)
Log message:
Add support for libmpg123 (default on) and libopus (default off).

libmpg123 is the internally preferred mp3 decoder, according to codecs.conf.
The ffmpeg fallback complains a lot about many audio streams, causing
stuttering sound. Using mpg123 should avoid that.

Log message:
mencoder, mplayer, gmplayer: restore text relocation fix for NetBSD/i386.

It seems lost in the previous patch-aa -> patch-configure rename.
Bump PKGREVISION to rebuild binaries.
   2018-05-27 17:27:14 by Izumi Tsutsui | Files touched by this commit (9) | Package updated
Log message:
mencoder, mplayer, gmplayer: avoid text relocations on NetBSD/i386 8.0.

* specify --disable-sse4 to avoid non-PIE asm ops in libmpcodecs/vf_ass.c
  that cause text relocations on NetBSD/i386
* explicitly pull pkgsrc/multimedia/libass to avoid internal libass
  (which seems usually enabled by configure's autodetect)
* specify -fpic in configure for NetBSD/i386 to enable __PIC__ blocks
  in some sources
* while here, use -mtune rather than -mcpu for not only gcc4 but
  also 5.x and later

   2016-02-07 14:34:34 by Leonardo Taccari | Files touched by this commit (20) | Package updated
Log message:
Update multimedia/{gmplayer,mencoder,mplayer,mplayer-share} to 1.2.1.

pkgsrc changes:
 o Switch all mplayer packages to use multimedia/ffmpeg2 instead of the
   version bundled with MPlayer. This will make maintainership of mplayer
   packages probably a bit easier (and it's particular relevant when dealing
   vulnerability issues). Discussed with wiz@.
 o Adjust CONFIGURE_ARGS and other part of the Makefile* to reflect the switch
   to multimedia/ffmpeg2.

Changes:
  1.2.1:
    Fixes:
    * misc GUI fixes
    * fix build regression in FreeBSD
    * fix many crashes with fuzzed files
    * fix errors for multichannels files and pulseaudio >= 6
    Other:
    * building with system FFmpeg libs is possible without a local copy of
      of private FFmpeg headers
    * docs building does not require FFmpeg anymore
    * FFmpeg updated to 2.8.5
   2015-11-21 10:47:23 by Leonardo Taccari | Files touched by this commit (31) | Package updated
Log message:
Update gmplayer, mencoder, mplayer and mplayer-share to 1.2.

pkgsrc changes:
 * Various misc fixes (thanks to pkglint)
 * Do not pass --with-dvdread-config and --with-dvdnav-config, the
   dvdread-config and dvdnav-config seems that no longer exist.
 * Avoid to pass --enable-libvorbis otherwise libvorbis can not be recognised by
   the mplayer configure script.
 * (re)Use patches from multimedia/ffmpeg2 instead of using mplayer-specific
   ones

Changes:
1.2: "FrameCounter"
  Decoders:
  * Hardware accelerated decoding on OS X via VDA.
  * Internal libmpeg2 disabled by default, on the assumption
    that nobody really needs it anymore.

  Other:
  * "run" slave/keybinding command now supports expanding properties
  * better support for > 8 bit formats in -vo gl
  * support for XYZ color space in -vo gl
  * -vo gl now supports OSD (not EOSD though) with GLES backend.
  * GLES backend now uses GLES v2 with YUV support via shaders
  * -vo gl supports rotated display without needing video filters via
    -monitor-orientation command-line option.
  * -vo gl now has an OSX/Cocoa backend, so it should be a better
    alternative to -vo corevideo now.
  * -vo gl2 renamed to -vo gl_tiled to stop people from assuming it is
    better than -vo gl (it is in many ways worse).
  * Fixes for DVB, teletext and closed-caption based subtitles.
  * Support teletext and CC subtitles in WTV.
  * Support binding keys corresponding to non-ASCII characters.
  * Limited -endpos support for -dump*
  * Danish messages header file renamed from help_mp-dk.h to help_mp-da.h
    in order to comply with ISO 639 language code (configure language
    options will now require da instead of dk)
  * configure: options --enable-gtk1, --with-glib-config= and
    --with-gtk-config= removed
  * Change ID3 genre name for genre ID 67 from "Psychadelic"
    to "Psychedelic"
  * support for audio bin/cue images

  Ports:
  * Windows: support file names as UTF-8 in slave mode and passing
    file names as wchar command line arguments.
  * Android: MPlayer can be run from adb shell and display videos
    via OpenGL ES.
    Note that just a bit of seeking etc. would cause reproducible
    system reboots after just a few seconds on my Galaxy S2.
  * Android: -wid is supported. This should allow using MPlayer in slave
    mode, a native window pointer needs to be passed as -wid. Untested.

  GUI:
  * Support for TV/DVB
  * Various improvements of the context menu and the preferences dialog
  * Revision of the user interface texts
  * Console message with information on deprecated (but still supported)
    entries in the skin configuration file
  * New symbol character (r) and new dynamic label variables ($D, $U, $P)
  * New items (pimage, rpotmeter)
  * Updated skins (avifile, Blue, Blue-small, Clearlooks, Corelian,
    disappearer, mentalic, mplayer_red, nativeRed, neutron, phony, plastic,
    slim, softgrip, standard, trium, tvisor, xanim)
  * Video can be rotated
  * New GUI message: evSetRotation
  * GUI now officially needs GTK+ and GLib versions 2 (it hadn't compiled
    with versions 1 for quite some time)
  * Support for audio and video bin/cue image playback
  * Support for Audio CD / (Super) Video CD / DVD image and DVD copy playback
    through the respective scheme (cd://, vcd://, dvd://)
  * Support for arbitrary non-binary data file cue sheets (i.e. cue sheets
    describing playlists for data files containing multiple titles)

  FFmpeg:
  * Version 2.8 with local patches

Thanks to wiz@ for misc private discussion.
