The x11/mplayer port

mplayer-20230409p1 – movie player supporting many formats (cvsweb github mirror)


MPlayer is a media player.  It plays most MPEG/VOB, AVI, ASF/WMA/WMV,
FLV, RM, QT/MOV/MP4, Ogg/OGM, MKV, VIVO, FLI, NuppelVideo, yuv4mpeg,
FILM and RoQ files.  You can watch VCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5,
WMV, and even H.264 movies, too.

MPlayer supports a wide range of video output drivers.  It works
with X11, Xv, OpenGL and optionally AAlib or SDL (and this way all
drivers of SDL).  Most of them support software or hardware scaling,
so you can enjoy movies in fullscreen.

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

Possible issues with using MPlayer on OpenBSD:

all arches:
  The GUI is deprecated so we stripped it from the build. You can use
  x11/gnome-mplayer or x11/smplayer instead.

  Mencoder is not expected to do a good job of multiplexing into container
  formats other than AVI or MPEG.

  Win32 codecs were disabled in OpenBSD's build, as the open source codecs
  are now of decent quality.

  You may encounter slow video output.  In this case you can disable
  the X.Org screen rotation in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Depending on the
  video you are playing you may want to pass the -framedrop or the
  -hardframedrop option to mplayer.

See the package description for a list of FLAVORs and their meaning.
