MPlayer comes with extensive documentation that explains in detail how
to solve or work around most common problems, how to best set up MPlayer
on your system and how to achieve optimal performance.
The most common questions are collected in the
FAQ. If you are looking for
a specific thing you can try to
search the documentation
to find a solution.
Information about MPlayer internals and other development related
aspects can be found in the tech section
of the documentation.
The online documentation is generated nightly from the Subversion HEAD
version of MPlayer. If you are using a release you may notice
some changes and thus prefer to use the documentation that comes with
your installation. Translations to several languages are available.
The master version is English, but the translations are
up-to-date unless marked otherwise.
The manual page for MPlayer and MEncoder describes all available command
line options and how to control MPlayer with the keyboard. It is also
regenerated nightly from the Subversion HEAD version of MPlayer.
We continuously strive to improve and extend the documentation. If you
find omissions, errors or inaccuracies, please tell us on the
mailing list. If the documentation is not (yet) available in your language
and you are interested in translating it, please read the
translation HOWTO and join the
mailing list. We always welcome new translations. Also, the available
translations can always use a helping hand, especially those marked as
outdated, incomplete or in need of new translators.
