Playback resumes when switching to/from fullscreen

Sorry if the following question has already been answered or
discussed somewhere but I have not been able to find relevant
information either in the documentation or on the web.

Every time I switch to/from fullscreen mode by pressing "F" when
playback is paused, MPlayer changes the mode accordingly but on
top of that it also resumes playback. Why? How do I stop this?

Thanks.

seek causes "squeak" when playing mp3

when playing an audio files (mp3) in mplayer and when seeking forward
(seek +10) or backward (seek -10), the audio almost always makes an
unpleasant squeak, a very high-frequency noise.

Whenever that happens flowing output is printed (example):

  A:  82.1 (01:22.0) of 4953.0 ( 1:22:33.0)  0.1%
  AO: [alsa] 48000Hz 1ch floatle (4 bytes per sample)

Sometimes (rarely) seek works without squeak, and no output is printed.

This happens with all mp3 files, I have tried at least couple of
hundred. It never happens when playing video.

 1) do other people also experience this problem?
 2) can somebody please explain what is wrong?
 3) and how to fix this ?

Needles to say, this makes mplayer pretty much unusable for playing audio.

I am using following version of mplayer :
MPlayer svn r34540 (Debian), built with gcc-4.7 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team

many thanks,
Thomas

Linux clock loses time when DVD is playing


Is there a known bug, misconfiguration problem or hardware conflict
that causes the Linux system clock to lose time while MPlayer is
playing a DVD?

Playing a DVD, my clock loses 6 to 8 seconds per minute of elapsed
time while the video is playing.  This effect stops when the video is
paused and when it has ended and mplayer has exited.

I've verified this with a script that polls the clock at 1
min. intervals while a DVD is playing and compares the result to the
time on a LAN-connected laptop.

The clock is otherwise stable with no significant drift, whether up or
shut/powered down.  There is no problem with the video, audio or
subtitles. 

Some system info below.

Any info about eliminating this behavior and/or its cause welcome.

Tnx,
- Mike

how do you specify the path in mplayer's "mf:" parameter

Apologies for posting this twice (in June), but I'm not sure how these posts 
work and whether they are carried over to the new month.

I'm trying to use mplayer to player a single JPG image for 10 secs. Problem 
I'm finding is I don't know how to specify the path where the JPG is. It 
would appear to me that the JPG must be in the "current" folder for it to 
work.

Line Command to play test.jpg for 10secs, where "C:\folder1" was made the 
current folder prior to this execution:-
"C:\folder1\mplayer.exe" "mf://test.jpg" -mf fps=1 -loop 425

In my example above, both mplayer.exe & test.jpg reside in "C:\folder1" 
however I want to put the JPG in the subfolder, "C:\folder1\folder2", 
without having to make it the "current" folder in Windows.

Is there any way to specify a windows path so the media path doesn't have to 
be the current directory?
I tried adding in a Windows path like this 
"mf://C:\folder1\folder2\test.jpg" but it was ignored and didn't play 
anything.

Thanks,
Dave.

MPlayer - playing JPG

mplayer plays my videos like a legend.
However, I would like to know how to play a JPEG image for say 15 seconds using mplayer line command. I've
tried various options but I seem to always get the msg "[image2  <at>  015799e0]Could find no file with path
'mp:C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaUnleashed\test.jpg' and index in the range 0-4
LAVF_header: av_open_input_stream() failed"

The line command issued is:-
mplayer.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaUnleashed\test.jpg"

I've also tried adding various options like "-vo jpeg"

Could somebody please send me the line command required to run on Windows.
Thanks.
Dave.

Crosshair target over video

I am wanting to use a webcam to determine and adjust a CNC milling machine
position and to use it to guide the position the cutter over edges/holes
etc.
The camera is in the machine cutting head. I need the video feed displayed
with
a crosshair pattern in the dead centre.

I have managed to get the video feed displayed and a sort of crosshair
fudged
with the following instruction. This is in ‘linuxcnc’ and the image pops up
in
a window in the control software.

mplayer -wid {XID} tv://0 -vf rectangle=-1:2:-1:240,rectangle=2:-1:320:-1

What I would like is to be able to select an alternative crosshair
pattern - ideally a crosshair with a central circle (and possibly some
other
designs I have in mind)

Obviously I can create the necessary image - in whatever format is
necessary
but how do I get it to display over my video?

Many thanks in advance

Gasman

Does mplayer for windows support hardware acceleration?

Hi,
Using mplayer to player a 3840*2160 mp4 movie, the CPU usage is 31%. but using windows media player the CPU
usage is less than 3%.  
Does mplayer for windows support hardware acceleration? Is there any command line option can use?

play audio in window (gui)

when I open audio file from commandline, such as

  mplayer my_audio.mp3

mplayer plays the audio inside the commandline.

How can I tell it to open a window, same as when playing video file ?

I don't care what the window background would be, it can be all black.
But I need individual window for each audio file, so that I can switch
between them.

How to compile mplayer on ARMv8?

Hello, because I didn't find in http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/
deb compilation for ARMv8, I tried to compile mplayer with mencoder on
ARMv8 by myself (RaspberryPi3, Raspbian Jessie - I know there is no
mencoder available for Jessie)
I did it like this:
$ wget http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/MPlayer-1.3.0.tar.xz
$ tar xf MPlayer-1.3.0.tar.xz
$ cd MPlayer-1.0rc2
$ ./configure
$ sudo make && sudo make install

I made it via ssh. Then I found out that:
- I can just run mplayer via ssh terminal (only when I run mplayer via ssh
console, video shows on my hdmi monitor)
- just -vo fbdev is working
- -vf crop and -vf pp are not working (mplayer simply does not run)

When I install mplayer from package repo via sudo apt-get install mlpayer,
it works ok (but mencoder is not included, as known).
Any idea what am I doing wrong during my compilation?
