|MPlayer - the movie player for Linux Select language : English Hungarian|
Here you can find everything needed to get MPlayer up and running. The recommended way to install MPlayer is to compile from current SVN source. Look at the unofficial packages section of our projects page if you do not wish to compile from source and/or are looking for packages that may be more tightly integrated with your platform. You might also want to check out the other frontends since there is no further development and limited bug fixing for the included graphical user interface.
Be advised that we do not support any unofficial packages, only the non-outdated official ones listed below. If you have trouble with unofficial packages, get support from the respective authors.
We provide nightly Subversion snapshots generated at six in the morning (GMT+1). They are generally stable and recommended. If you have issues with them report it, or use Subversion directly to get a more up-to-date or previous version, or wait for the next snapshot, it might be fixed by then.
The Subversion snapshots are working directories complete with Subversion metadata (the result of 'svn checkout'). The source snapshots are bare sources without Subversion metadata (the result of 'svn export').
We recommend to use latest SVN always, but currently there is also an outdated release available, which includes an FFmpeg snapshot.
You can also get MPlayer via Subversion. Issue the following command to get the latest sources:
svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
A directory named
from within that directory.
Our Subversion setup does not work over HTTP/HTTPS, nor will it in the future. If you have trouble accessing the Subversion repository, then in 99% of all cases a firewall on your side is the problem. Open TCP port 3690 or find a machine that can use the svn:// protocol directly. Another alternative is downloading a Subversion snapshot.
First of all, a big warning: These packages are useless for normal Windows players and will only work with MPlayer.
Our binary codec packages add support for codecs that are not yet implemented natively, like newer RealVideo variants and a lot of uncommon formats. Note that they are not necessary to play most common formats like DVDs, MPEG-1/2/4, etc. See the codec status table for the daily-generated list of currently supported codecs.
Choose the package that matches your processor and operating system. If your system cannot manage Linux libraries, choose the Windows package instead. On Windows MPlayer will try to use the codecs installed on your system. Our packages can save you the hassle of installing every known codec and using untested codec versions.
Instructions for installing binary codecs can be found in the README or in the README.txt file that accompanies each codec package. If you want to verify the integrity of the codec packages, compare the MD5 sums. If you want to know what's new in a codec package, check the ChangeLog.
Old package versions, md5sums of all codecs and unsupported/broken codecs useful for development are kept in the codecs directory.
If you want to create your own MPlayer GUI skin, read the skin section of the documentation. If you are content with your skin and wish to have it added to the official skin collection, go over the Creating quality skins guide and submit the skin to us.
