[MPlayer-users] SSL Support (HTTPS) in mplayer

And yet, mplayer installs without any problems.

Your configure script was broken. Thankfully, someone
actually bothered to fix it after the others tried
to argue with me instead of bothering to look
at your poorly maintained code.

After I upgraded my compiler (which wasn't the problem
in the first place), all I heard were more excuses rather
than attempts to make the software work. Egotistical
software writers who lack the basic curiosity to even
look at their code before (wrongly) blaming the user?
Not software I would want on my system, however old or new
it may be.

My advice to everyone from here on will definitely be to
stick with mplayer and/or ditch mpv as soon as possible.
And if mpv doesn't compile on the first try, don't waste
your time. All you'll get is more egotistical arguing
from people who couldn't be bothered to write quality software.

Stay away from mpv, or take your chances. Beware.
