I’ve updated the MPlayer Installer and uploaded it.
1. Download The MPlayer Installer that I made (Right click Save Link As).
2. Change to root user and run the MPlayer Installer OR run the MPlayer Installer with sudo as followed:
bash-3.1$ su root
bash-3.1# sh mplayer_setup.sh
Changes to this version:
mplayer-1.0rc1try3-i486-2kjz.tgz is now being used as mplayer-1.0rc1-i486-1goa.tgz is no longer available.
Instead of using the essential codecs pack I am now using the all-20071007.tar.bz2 package. This includes so many more codecs. Even apple.com trailers work for me now.
A bunch of dependencies / libraries are now being downloaded and installed here is the list:
The following error is caused because samba is not installed:
mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libsmbclient.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
If you run into any other problems, as always you can e-mail me (owen @ thelinuxblog.com) for help.
Because of all the changes the line by line breakdown of the installer from: Slackware 12 – MPlayer Setup in 3 Easy Steps post is no longer accurate.
