- - added GL-test directory, it contains source and compiler script of a
- very simple open-gl texture updating (glTexSubImage) test program.
- if it runs well, then mplayer -o gl should work, too.

- specify the correct fps at commandline (-fps), +-1 fps allowed...
- [i haven't yet found method to get fps out from ASF headers :(((]
- - some error and consistency checking into demux_asf
- if you see many warning! messages playing an ASF file, then contact
- me and upload the file (first 1MB is enough if it represents the problem)
- Don't forget: there is no public doc about the ASF file format, so
- everything we know is suspected and can be wrong... without your help

- -> opendivx extra 64-pixel width band at right disappeared!
- - MPEG bitrate fix: if picture->bitrate==0x3FFFF (means "unspecified" ?)
- then using standard VCD bitrate (75*2324 bytes/sec)
- -> fixed seeking for those MPEGs with "16MBit/s" bitrate...
- - drivers/sis_vid: video4linux interface disabled
- - broken VCD playing fixed: stream_reset shouldn't seek to 0x0...
- [bugreport: Kang Sun]

-
-MPlayer v0.10-pre7: Dec 31, 2000
- libmpeg2 interface changes, display size/area changes, AVI fixes

- - removed unused OMS and mpeg2dec stuff
- - decode_data rewritten, now works like parse_es.c
- => doesn't copy any data -> faster and less memory usage
- - mplayer.c sends code 0x1FF after every frame, so libmpeg2 knows
- when to display it
- - mplayer.c: in_frame flag fixes, didn't work well with MPEG-2 streams
- (because there is a 0x1B2 chunk between 0x100 and 0x101)
- - 'picture' changed from static to shmem-allocated
- -> better picture after codec restart (tested with JapAd.mpg)
- -> keep information of the header changes (after init)
- - MPEG image size changed, now only the real part of frame is displayed
- (no more green stripe at the bottom)
- - picture struct: new fields: display_picture_width/height
- - image buffer allocation (shmem) is done by decode.c instead of libvo
- - new option: -xy <value> (resize both x/y direction)
- if value<=8 -> x_scale = y_scale = value
- else -> x_size=value y_size=aspectratio*x_size
- - mplayer.c: video output moved out from AVI/MPG init sections and
- now it's common code (added movie_size_x/y variables and out_fmt global)
- - new keys:
- ESC => quit
- + and - => adjust audio delay +- 0.1 second
- k => kill/restart the MPEG codec process (for testing)
- - codec control interface changed: wait for syncword after (re)start
- to avoid receiving old frames => it's stable again!
- - removed (now unused) allocate/free image buffer code from libvo
- - mplayer: new internal variable for video format: has_video
- 0 = none (unused yet)
- 1 = MPEG-1/2 video
- 2 = Win32/VfW video codec
- - config.h has defaults for bps-based AVI sync and ALSA timer code options:

- #define ALSA_TIMER => now it's enabled by default!!! use -noalsa to dis.
- - help updated
- - prints max compressed framesize at exit (both AVI & MPEG)
- - AVI audio seeking fixed: some ACM codecs (DivX audio and ms-adpcm)
- can't seek inside a chunk, they are only able to play whole chunks.
- Current audio seeking has changed to seek inside the chunk only if the
- codec supports it (only internal codecs and ACM/MP3 allows it).

-MPlayer v0.09-pre2:
- bugfix test-release
- - removed unnecessary code from libmpeg2/header.c
- Walken told me that standard MPG/VOB streams must NOT use framerate
- and bitrate extension... and the ext. id check is done by the caller.
- - CRC support to mp3lib's MPEG audio layer-2 decoder
- thanks for bug report & test file to Samson
-

-mpg12play v0.9-v0.95pre5: Oct 21-Nov 2, 2000
- MPEG codec was libmpeg2 (mpeg2dec) by Aaron Holtzman & Michel
- Lespinasse. It's great, optimized very fast C code with perfect
- image quality and 100% MPEG standard conformance.
-
-
-
-mpg12play v0.5-v0.87: Sep 28-Oct 20, 2000
- MPEG codec replaced with DVDview by Dirk Farin, it was great
- stuff, but it was slow and was written in C++ (I hate C++!!!)
-
-
-
-mpg12play v0.1-v0.3: Sep 22-25, 2000
- The first try, hacked together in half an hour! I've used libmpeg3

-Welcome to MPlayer, The Movie Player. MPlayer can play most standard video
-formats out of the box and almost all others with the help of external codecs.
-MPlayer currently works best from the command line, but visual feedback for
-many functions is available from its onscreen status display (OSD), which is
-also used for displaying subtitles.
-MEncoder is a command line video encoder for advanced users that can be built
-from the MPlayer source tree. Unofficial graphical frontends exist but are
-not included.
-
-This document is for getting you started in a few minutes. It cannot answer all
-of your questions. If you have problems, please read the documentation in
-DOCS/HTML/en/index.html, which should help you solve most of your problems.
-Also read the man page to learn how to use MPlayer.
-
-
-Requirements:
-- POSIX system: You need a POSIX-compatible shell and POSIX-compatible system
- tools like grep, sed, awk, etc. in your path.
-- You need a working development environment that can compile programs.
- On popular Linux distributions, this means having the glibc development
- package(s) installed.
-- To compile MPlayer with X11 support, you need to have the X Window System
- development packages (like for XFree86 or X.Org) installed.
-
-
-Before you start...
-Make sure that your version of X has Xvideo support, without it even very
-fast machines may not be able to properly play high resolution videos in
-fullscreen mode. Consult DOCS/HTML/en/video.html for details. There you may
-also find out about special card-specific video output drivers that can yield
-optimal performance.
-
-
-______________________
-STEP0: Getting MPlayer
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-Official releases and Subversion snapshots, as well as binary codec packages
-available from the download section of our homepage at
-
- http://www.mplayerhq.hu/dload.html
-
-MPlayer has builtin support for the most common audio and video formats. For a
-few formats no native decoder exists and external binary codecs are required
-to handle them. Examples are newer RealVideo variants and a variety of rare
-formats. However, binary codecs are NOT required in this day and age, they are
-strictly optional.
-
-Please note that binary codecs only work on the processor architecture they
-were compiled for. Choose the correct package for your processor. No other
-package is necessary.
-
-Codec packages add support for some more video and audio formats. MPlayer does
-not come with any of these by default, you have to download and install them
-separately.
-
-You can also get MPlayer via Subversion. Issue the following commands to get
-the latest sources:
-
- svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
-
-A directory named 'mplayer' will be created. It will include all necessary
-FFmpeg libraries, you don't need to get them separately as was the case in
-the past. You can later update your sources by saying
-
- svn update
-
-from within that directory.
-
-
-_______________________________
-STEP1: Installing Binary Codecs
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-Unpack the codecs archives and put the contents in a directory where MPlayer
-will find them. The default directory is /usr/local/lib/codecs/ (it used to be
-/usr/local/lib/win32 in the past, this also works) but you can change that to
-something else by passing the '--codecsdir' option to './configure'.
-
-
-__________________________
-STEP2: Configuring MPlayer
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-MPlayer can be adapted to all kinds of needs and hardware environments. Run
-
- ./configure
-
-to configure MPlayer with the default options. If something does not work as
-expected, try
-
- ./configure --help
-
-to see the available options and select what you need.
-
-The configure script prints a summary of enabled and disabled options. If you
-have something installed that configure fails to detect, check the file
-config.log for errors and reasons for the failure. Repeat this step until
-you are satisfied with the enabled feature set.
-
-
-________________________
-STEP3: Compiling MPlayer
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-Now you can start the compilation by typing
-
- make
-
-You can install MPlayer with
-
- make install
-
-provided that you have write permission in the installation directory.
-
-If all went well, you can run MPlayer by typing 'mplayer'. A help screen with a
-summary of the most common options and keyboard shortcuts should be displayed.
-
-If you get 'unable to load shared library' or similar errors, run
-'ldd ./mplayer' to check which libraries fail and go back to STEP 3 to fix it.
-Sometimes running 'ldconfig' is enough to fix the problem.
-
-NOTE: If you run Debian you can configure, compile and build a proper Debian
-.deb package with only one command:
-
- fakeroot debian/rules binary
-
-If you want to pass custom options to configure, you can set up the
-DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS environment variable. For instance, if you want OSD menu
-support you would use:
-
- DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="--enable-menu" fakeroot debian/rules binary
-
-You can also pass some variables to the Makefile. For example, if you want
-to compile with gcc 3.4 even if it's not the default compiler:
-
- CC=gcc-3.4 DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="--enable-menu" fakeroot debian/rules binary
-
-To clean up the source tree run the following command:
-
- fakeroot debian/rules clean
-
-______________________________________
-STEP4: Choose an onscreen display font
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-You can use any TrueType font installed on your system. Just pass '-font
-/path/to/font.ttf' on the command line or add 'font=/path/to/font.ttf' to
-your configuration file. The manual page has more details. Alternatively
-you can create a symbolic link from either ~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf or
-/usr/local/share/mplayer/subfont.ttf to your TrueType font.
-
-
-__________________
-STEP5: Let's play!
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-That's it for the moment. To start playing movies, open a command line and try
-
- mplayer <moviefile>
-
-To play a VCD track or a DVD title, try:
-
- mplayer vcd://2 -cdrom-device /dev/hdc
- mplayer dvd://1 -alang en -slang hu -dvd-device /dev/hdd
-
-See 'mplayer -help' and 'man mplayer' for further options.
-
-'mplayer -vo help' will show you the available video output drivers. Experiment
-with the '-vo' switch to see which one gives you the best performance.
-If you get jerky playback or no sound, experiment with the '-ao' switch (see
-'-ao help') to choose between different audio drivers. Note that jerky playback
-is caused by buggy audio drivers or a slow processor and video card. With a
-good audio and video driver combination, one can play DVDs and 720x576 MPEG-4
-files smoothly on a Celeron 366. Slower systems may need the '-framedrop'
-option.
-
-Questions you may have are probably answered in the rest of the documentation.
-The places to start reading are the man page, DOCS/HTML/en/index.html and
-DOCS/HTML/en/faq.html. If you find a bug, please report it, but first read
-DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.
+Compiling with full features requires development files for several
+external libraries. Below is a list of some important requirements. For
+more information see the output of './configure --help' for a list of options,
+or look at the list of enabled and disabled features printed after running
+'./configure'. If you think you have support for some feature installed
+but configure fails to detect it, the file config.log may contain information
+about the reasons for the failure.
+
+Libraries specific to particular video output methods
+(you'll want at least one of VDPAU, GL or Xv):
+ - libvdpau (for VDPAU output, best choice for NVIDIA cards)
+ - libGL (OpenGL output)
+ - libXv (XVideo output)
+general:
+ - libasound (ALSA audio output)
+ - various general X development libraries
+ - libfreetype
+ - libfontconfig
+ - libass
+ - FFmpeg libraries (libavutil libavcodec libavformat libswscale libpostproc)
+
+Most of the above libraries are available in suitable versions on normal
+Linux distributions. However FFmpeg is an exception (distro versions may be
+too old to work at all or work well). For that reason you may want to use
+the separately available build wrapper that first compiles FFmpeg libraries
+and libass, and then compiles the player statically linked against those.
