Binary builds of MPlayer and MEncoder for Windows.
This is awesome. No more need to fire-up some heavy graphical user interface just to listen to audio streams! (Sorry I couldn't do this, due to a complete lack of free time here!) The only thing lacking, instructions how to install mplayer.exe and instructions concerning how to use with Cygwin. Basically, the mplayer.exe goes within your $PATH. I'm not sure where the other sub-folders should reside, but I simply created a symbolic link using Cygwin for my usage here. (ie. See below Cygwin Instructions) Initial execution of mplayer.exe seemed to search all of Windows fonts. Successive exections of mplayer.exe appeared to forgo the font searching, resulting in the usual quick start of the program. For cygwin users: 1) Unpackage the mplayer package to a folder. 2) Start cygwin and make sure you have a local bin folder (ie. /home/user/bin) within your path. If not, create the folder and modify your local $PATH to include your /home/user/bin folder, replacing the "user" with your user name. 3) Type "ln -s /place/where/you/unpackaged/mplayer/mplayer.exe /home/user/bin/" 4) If you prefer using .exe" command suffixes or are required to, and you have "mplayer" aliases within you Linux bashrc and are copying the Linux bashrc over to Windows' Cygwin, then open the bashrc file within vim and type ":%s/mplayer\ /mplayer.exe\ /gc" without quotes. The command will aide in replacing the "mplayer " with "mplayer.exe ". Most Cygwin users can skip this as Cygwin seems to recognize commands without the ".exe" suffix!
Nice work ! Version 37051 has not any more WMV bug. Really nice Job ! Don't stop working on mplayer, i use it everyday for a project i'll publish soon... Thanks again ;)
