Hi there,

Since we lost 2 mirrors last year we were not able to replace
them properly. Thus we are looking for new mirrors, especially
in central or northern Europe, in the US and in Japan.

The requirements are quite low:
(from DOCS/tech/mirrors/mirror_howto.txt)
The requirements for any (official) mirror are:
1) rsync installed and some way to run the sync script periodicaly (eg cron)
2) subscribing to the mplayer-mirror mailinglist (see below)

The requirements for a full website mirror are:
1) 500MB of free disk space (for the ftp and homepage directories).
2) A network connection with about 5Mbit/s sustained bandwidth.
3) A simple webserver that allows redirections and virtual server,
   no PHP or CGI needed as all pages are static.

The requirements for a full ftp mirror are:
1) 500MB of free disk space (for the ftp directory).
2) (No bandwidth data for a ftp only server available)

For more informations please read 

If you would like to help us, please subscribe to the
mplayer-mirror mailinglist:
