I need to announce that CVS repository is not longer used by mplayerxp. All further changes will be commited into new SVN repository of the project. SVN lost CVS history because rsynced dump file was large than 120Mb and i had no time to upload it back to SF.net

MPlayerXP supports new MRL: vcdnav://

If you are owner of Video CD, SVCD, HQVCD, XVCD then you may interest with new feauter of the project. It depends on libvcdinfo from http://www.vcdimager.org project and libcdio from http://www.gnu.org/software/libcdio. These libraries are more compatible with ISO, MMC standards than homebrewed stuff vcd:// So please spend more attention for new MRL because old 'vcd://' probably will be removed.

Working mplayerxp+VESA+ext3+threads

Was found way to get mplayerxp working under subj!!!
It's not a secret that mplayerxp produced coredump
after start with -vo vesa with mounted ext3fs

Unfortunately, the problem has no solution with linux-2.4+linuxthreads :(
It seems, that you will be lacky only with linux-2.6.x+nptl
(which is part of glibc-2.3.3+) !
As for me, I have no longer any problems with my home system!

mplayerxp-0.1.9 has been released

I'm glad to announce the new release of mplayerxp-0.1.9.
This release was not scheduled and you can't extract it from
CVS with using of -rtag or -D flags! It's collection of stable
patches which were applied into "old" 2-thread based core.
Main goal of releasing this version is applying of thread-safe
interface to demuxer. Hope that this release will be rock-stable
(much stable than 0.1.0 at least).

MplayerXP: XP mode with ASF formats

I've commited into CVS fixes for ASF demuxer to make it ready for XP mode. Of course, there can be problems so this
feature required to be tested much better. But it already works with every ASF file which I have.

MplayerXP: decoding ahead with VESA

MplayerXP is branch of well known mplayer (http://mplayerhq.hu) which is based on new (thread based) core. The new core provides better CPU utilization and excellently improves performance of video decoding.

I commited DECODING AHEAD for VESA driver into CVS!
Currently it works in DGA mode only. This means that you can't
get it working with -vo vesa:nodga key.
So you can test that and send me bugreports on it.... read more
