+Our latest release was getting stale, so it's time to make a new one.<br>
+Mplayer 1.2 is compatible with the recent FFmpeg 2.8 release.
+The tarball already includes a copy of FFmpeg, so you don't need to fetch it
+Due to some big API changes coming to FFmpeg, this release will not work with
+new FFmpeg master branch, nor with future FFmpeg releases.
+If you want to follow the latest improvements in MPlayer and FFmpeg, you are
+strongly encouraged to use Subversion HEAD and benefit from the latest
+features and bug fixes.<br>
+You know how to do it. Because you aren't using a 3 years old release,
+hopefully. If you are, read on and find out what you missed!
+VDPAU hardware accelerated decoding now works for HEVC (if your card and
+driver supports it).
+Hardware accelerated decoding is now supported also on Os X via VDA.
+VAAPI is still unsupported, but you can use it via VDPAU wrapper at least for
+A lot of new codecs, thanks to FFmpeg. The list includes HEVC, VP9 and Prores;
+Opus, improved AAC and DTS decoders; WebP and JPEG2000; and many, many others.
+Also rtsp streaming now uses FFmpeg by default, so you don't need any
+additional library to use it.<br>
+For the full list of improvements and bugfixes check the FFmpeg Changelog
+(note: not all features are available through MPlayer at the moment,
+Many GUI improvements, both in functionality (eg. TV and DVB support) and
+If you use the GUI, be sure to grab also the latest version of your favorite
+skin, or try a new one. You can get them
+The GUI now officially needs version 2 of GTK+ and GLib (compilation with older
+version was already broken for quite some time).
+Starting from this release, MPlayer no longer ships with an internal copy of
+libdvdnav and libdvdcss. You can use the libraries provided with your
+distribution, or compile and install them yourself. They will be autodetect
+at configuration time.<br>
+If your distribution does not include libdvdcss you can usually grab it from
+non-official repositories, or you can dowload the latest source code form its
+The tarballs are compressed with xz, for compatibility with odd systems they
+are available also with gzip compression.
+Please get the xz variant if you can to save bandwidth.
