* Rename directories, move files (step 2 of 2)wm42012-11-121-18/+22
| | | | | | | | | | | | Finish renaming directories and moving files. Adjust all include statements to make the previous commit compile. The two commits are separate, because git is bad at tracking renames and content changes at the same time. Also take this as an opportunity to remove the separation between "common" and "mplayer" sources in the Makefile. ("common" used to be shared between mplayer and mencoder.)
* core: disable vf_sub auto-insertionwm42012-10-241-2/+1
| | | | | | | Since most VOs support rendering subs directly, this doesn't change much. Changes include: vo_null is faster, vo_image doesn't add subtitles by default (while vo_lavc does), vo_caca doesn't render subs (but you couldn't read them anyway).
* VF: rename vf_ass to vf_subwm42012-10-241-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | This reflects the fact that this filter now renders all types of subtitles, not just ASS subtitles. Always compile this filter, not just on CONFIG_ASS. Note that --no-ass still disables auto-inserting this filter. It's the only way to disable auto-insertion, so keep it even though it's not really ASS specific anymore. --no-ass also disables using libass for rendering text subs directly.
* Rename to "mpv"wm42012-10-121-3/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This changes the name of this project to mpv. Most user-visible mentions of "MPlayer" and "mplayer" are changed to "mpv". The binary name and the default config file location are changed as well. The new default config file location is: ~/.mpv/ Remove etc/mplayer.desktop. Apparently this was for the MPlayer GUI, which has been removed from mplayer2 ages ago. We don't have a logo, and the MS Windows resource files sort-of require one, so leave etc/mplayer.ico/.xpm as-is. Remove the debian and rpm packaging scripts. These contained outdated dependencies and likely were more harmful than useful. (Patches which add working and well-tested packaging are welcome.)
* VO: actually rename VOs gl -> opengl-old, gl3 -> openglwm42012-10-031-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | This renames vo_gl3 to vo_opengl, and makes it the default. The old vo_gl is still available under "opengl-old". We keep "gl3" as alias to "opengl" for short-term compatibility. For OSX/Cocoa, the autoprobe order changes (prefer the "opengl" over "opengl-old"). Remove "gl_nosw". This was a compatibility alias for "opengl-old", and there's no point in keeping it.
* libaf: rename af_format.h to format.hwm42012-08-291-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | af_format.h declares some symbols which are defined in format.c. The fact that af_format.c is a completely unrelated file is rather confusing. Having the header and implementation file use the same base name is more uniform. (af_format.c is the audio conversion filter, while af_format.h and format.c are about audio formats and their properties.) Also fix all source files which include this file.
* DOCS: add big picture overview over the codewm42012-08-261-0/+206
Apparently this was useful for some. Isn't as detailed as general.txt and others, but broader and less outdated.
