How To Build Uoti's git MPlayer Branch on Linux

Apr 06, 2010, 18:03 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Linux_Veteran for this link. ]

"Uoti Urpala, one of the core developers of mplayer, maintains a forked branch of mplayer that contains a lot of interesting patches that are not (yet) included in the main svn repository. His branch is often referred to as the 'git branch' on forums, since it's kept in a git code repository (http://repo.or.cz/w/mplayer.git). Some of the features included in Uoti's branch are multithreading (which enables mplayer to take advantage of multi core cpus), Matroska (mkv) ordered chapters, better SSA/ASS subtitle support, improved VDPAU support, and other improvements.
