I am not familiar with compiling packages from source on Debian, so I'm not exactly sure if this is the correct method. I simply searched on Google and this result looked like the right one (link: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=84825).

It's suggested there to compile from the ubuntu PPA if mplayer-vaapi doesn't build from git. As you can see further down in that thread, this almost worked but not really.

stevepusser then mentioned to install mpv (available from the MEPIS repo), which works pretty well. Besides SMTube, it can use CMPlayer as a front-end (more complicated as that's a QT5 application - Wheezy only has QT4).

Re: Mplayer for beginners

This is truly a horrid obstacle for beginners attempting to compile a source package.

install -d /usr/local/bin /usr/local/etc/mplayer /usr/local/lib
install: cannot change permissions of `/usr/local/etc/mplayer': No such file or directory
make: *** [install-dirs] Fehler 1

**** Installation fehlgeschlagen. Breche Paket-Erzeugung ab.

And here's the solution:

./configure --prefix=/usr <add your other options here> 

/usr/local can widely be expected to be empty on a stock Debian distro, unless YOU have put something in there before.

However, I hope the install script does not have any further flaw! Since the system-wide mplayer stuff on my Lubuntu resides in /etc/mplayer. So I strongly hope that when instructing ./configure that it should use /usr as --prefix, make will not try to look for mplayer stuff in /usr/etc/mplayer (which would be totally wrong).

Re: Mplayer for beginners

Though I would recommend using your home folder for all your mplayer configurations.

Re: Mplayer for beginners

This is why I emphasized "system-wide", i. e. the basics that apply to all users. The individual stuff is, of course, achieved by using a .mplayer configuration file in your $HOME. However, this fact was so trivial that I chose not to mention it...;)

Re: Mplayer for beginners

Dunno if you all already know this, or if someone's posted it already....but just in-case (as this helped simplify my life greatly!):

If you want to play all sub-directories contained in a directory via CLI Mplayer, you do not have to go through the bother of creating a playlist.

For instance, say you have a directory "NerdRock" in your Music folder, and in that NerdRock directory, their are individual directories (or "albums") containing mp3 files, and you want to play all of those albums/directories in shuffle mode?

Cd into the NerdRock directory

cd ~/Music/NerdRock

and then:

mplayer -shuffle */./*.mp3

=all mp3 files contained in all the sub-directories of the NerdRock directory will be played in random order!


CAUTION!    Linus may be quoted!!.

Re: Mplayer for beginners

Thanks for this Chooch - your post prompted me to start playing with mplayer. Having fun with it now. May I respectfully correct an error in your last script - which at least for me didn't work until I changed it to

mplayer -shuffle */*/*.mp3

Still wondering what counts as nerdrock though wink
