This is a quick guide to installing the Mplayer port.
(optional) Before you install Mplayer you should probably get the codecs that you want from mplayerhq.hu and put them in /usr/local/lib/codecs. Note the disclaimer: There is absolutely no warranty of any kind for these codec packages. Copyrights of all DLLs remain with their respective owner(s). You should be aware that some of these DLLs have licenses that restrict them to use with certain programs. We only distribute them, the rest is your responsibility.
> su Password: (enter root password) > mkdir /usr/local/lib/codecs > cd /tmp/ > wget http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/all-20050115.tar.bz2 > bunzip2 all-20050115.tar.bz2 > tar -xf all-20050115.tar > cd /usr/local/lib/codecs > cp /tmp/all-20050115/* .
Now installing Mplayer can be as complicated as you want the following example is very simple.
> su Password: (enter root password) > cd /usr/ports/multimedia/mplayer > make WITH_GUI=yes install clean
Before you run Mplayer you need to install the fonts,
> cd /usr/ports/multimedia/mplayer-fonts > make install clean
create your user settings,
> su nvrmnd Password: (enter nvrmnd's password) > cd /usr/ports/multimedia/mplayer > make install-user > cp /usr/local/share/mplayer/codecs.conf ~/.mplayer/ > cp /usr/local/share/mplayer/example.conf ~/.mplayer/config > cp /usr/local/share/mplayer/input.conf ~/.mplayer
add atleast one skin from mplayerhq.hu,
> su nvrmnd Password: (enter nvrmnd's password) > mkdir ~/.mplayer/Skin > cd ~/.mplayer/Skin > wget http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/Skin/Blue-1.4.tar.bz2 > bunzip2 Blue-1.4.tar.bz2 > tar -xf Blue-1.4.tar
and edit ~/.mplayer/config comment out the last line:
include = /home/gabucino/.mplayer/i_did_not_RTFM_carefully_enough...
you can run Mplayer with a gui wth the gmplayer command. The command line player is mplayer.
