View Full Version : mplayer 1.0rc2

12-10-2007, 12:42
It's been a while, but we are still around and have decided that it's time to funnel our steady stream of daily changes into a release again.
One main source of improvements has, as always, been FFmpeg, which added support for several new video and audio codecs along with speedups and massive code cleanups.
MPlayer now supports Real RTSP authentication and the libnemesi streaming library as an alternative to live555. Also, many QuickTime over RTSP streams can now be played. There have been various improvements to TV streaming, Intel Mac support should be complete.
Support for VC-1 in MPEG-TS and MPEG-PS will make many HDTV streams work. Blu-ray or HD-DVD playback is not possible yet, but MPlayer can play the EVO files after they have been decrypted.
MPlayer now assumes square pixels as found on LCD panels. If the video on your monitor appears squished or stretched please use '-monitoraspect 4:3' to get back the previous behavior.
It is no longer necessary to patch the sources to get AMR audio support. Instead, download AMR libraries for Linux and install them as described on that page.
Note that this release will not compile on current (as of this writing) Cygwin versions due to a missing llrint implementation in Cygwin. You will have to wait for the next gcc upgrade in Cygwin or patch either Cygwin or MPlayer locally.
There is no need to download binary codec packages if you already have an older version.

libmpeg2 updated to 0.4.1
fixed resolution switching with libmpeg2
handle resolution switching for Real codecs
FFmpeg video decoder can now handle aspect ratio changes
AMR now handled via libamr wrapper (http://www.penguin.cz/~utx/amr)
SIMD optimizations for mp3lib under AMD64
Implemented switch_video and switch_program consistently with switch_audio (default keys are "_" and TAB, respectively). For the time being program switching is only available in TS streams handled by demux_ts.c (not libavformat), while video switching is also handled by demux_lavf.c and demux_avi.c.

ALSA audio output now sets the non-audio bit for AC3 passthrough even if the user-specified default device name tries to clear it
fixed internal VIDIX in Solaris/x86, also auto-enabled
rework of internal VIDIX, now a fully static library with builtin drivers
updated VIDIX ATI drivers
Sun XVR-100 video output driver
monitorpixelaspect=1 is now default. Set monitoraspect=4/3 to get the old behavior (if you have non-square pixels).
