Help installing Mplayer on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon

Recommended Posts

I got Ubuntu about 2 weeks ago on my PC. So i'm just getting used to some the features. I wanted to be able to watch MOV, DIVX, etc files so I downloaded Mplayer and removed Totem

 

After downloading and extracting Mplayer, a set of binary libraries from the mplayer.hu website, and a skin. i created a folder, /usr/lib/codec, for the libraries and placed them there. when i run ./configure i get the following terminal response:

 

root@murthy-desktop:~/Desktop/Applications/MPlayer-1.0rc2# ./configure

Check "configure.log" if you do not understand why it failed.

thanks

Is there any particular reason you want to compile Mplayer from source? If not, it might just be easier to grab it from the repositories. From the command line:

 

sudo apt-get install mplayer mplayerplug-in

 

and it should do it all for you, and pick up the binary codecs you've already installed. Might also want to do this just in case the binary codecs don't want to be recognised:

 

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/codecs /usr/lib/win32

 

Hope this helps. :)
