Today I commited to CVS the initial version of multiple file support.
I mean mplayer x1.mpg x2.mpg y.avi z.asf ...

But it's far from being complete, and even far from being stable :(
There are many problems we have to solve.
The most important ones:
- fix memory leaks (i fixed a lot already)
  patches are welcomed!
- DLL uninitialization - hard thing, i have no idea :(
  (there is a big code to load and run a DLL, but nobody know how to kill them)
- fix config/commandline options - now they apply to first file,
  and 2nd 3rd etc files are a bit random, some options work some is
  inherited from first file (for example window size...) or default.
  we have to re-organize config options storage, maybe a new struct.
  (now they are mostly overwritten by final values of first file)
- fix crashes, bugs, if any.

Please report us:
- crashes (sig11 if play a file after another, but ok if play alone, etc.)
- compilation problems (including non-linux platforms. patches welcomed!)
- single file problem ("it worked before added multifile support")

Do not report:
- config/commandline-related problems. they are known, see above.
- memory leaks. we know they are there. it will eat more memory :(
- feature requests (parallel playback, playlists, common .sub file etc)
  -> we want to stabilize this stuff first.
