Summary     : The media player for linux
Description :
MPlayer is a movie player for LINUX. It plays most MPEG, AVI and ASF
files, supported by many native and win32 DLL codecs. You can watch
VCD, DVD and even DivX movies too. The another big feature of mplayer
is the wide range of supported output drivers. It works with X11, Xv,
DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, but you can use SDL (and this way all
drivers of SDL) and some lowlevel card-specific drivers (for
Matrox/3dfx/SiS) too! Most of them supports software or hardware
scaling, so you can enjoy movies in fullscreen. And what about the nice
big antialiased shaded subtitles (7 supported types!!!) with hungarian,
english, cyrillic, czech, korean fonts, and OSD?

Note: Win32 DLLS are not included in this package. You have to download
(try mplayer download page http://mplayer.dev.hu/homepage/dload.html)
and install them manually in /usr/lib/win32.

Note: in order to run out-of-the-box on any pentium-class computer, all
optimisations have been disabled. To achieve better performances, get
the source package, remove all '--disable-xxx' lines in the
configuration stage, and rebuild.

Note: for gui mode you'll need to download a skin from MPlayer homepage and
extract it into your $HOME/.mplayer directory.
