Success! SSL Support (HTTPS) in mplayer

Two messages on the command line:

"Warning unknown option fm at line 4"
(not streaming-related?)

and

"Using network protocols without global network initialization. Please use avformat_network_init(),
this will become mandatory later."

---

Plays flawlessly (for the moment, judging from the second message).

Perhaps worthy of note: I had to make quite a few modifications to libmng
(header file inclusion mainly) in the source code, and post-installation
as well. Odd that the libmng code was in need of editing before it
would run.

Also, it could be useful to explicitly mention that gnutls is required
rather than openssl.

Exciting to have SSL working in mplayer after all this time... thanks!

Re: SSL Support (HTTPS) in mplayer

I'm actually not here to talk trash about bad software (mpv),
but rather to find out ways to use good software (mplayer).

So you can take the rest of your flaming nonsense about mpv
and go "rectify" it somewhere else.

I'm done responding to the offtopic troll.

My next message to the list will (hopefully) be a successful
report of playing SSL-streamed video in the newest svn build of mplayer.
I may have a few questions, so we'll see. On-topic questions
about mplayer, at the very least....

Re: SSL Support (HTTPS) in mplayer

Yes, you've been offtopic from the beginning
of your egotistical bout of whining
in defense of your irretrievably broken software.

Feel free to go back to breaking your sad little mplayer clone
and trash-talking your unfortunate users somewhere else.

Re: SSL Support (HTTPS) in mplayer

And yet, mplayer installs without any problems.

Your configure script was broken. Thankfully, someone
actually bothered to fix it after the others tried
to argue with me instead of bothering to look
at your poorly maintained code.

After I upgraded my compiler (which wasn't the problem
in the first place), all I heard were more excuses rather
than attempts to make the software work. Egotistical
software writers who lack the basic curiosity to even
look at their code before (wrongly) blaming the user?
Not software I would want on my system, however old or new
it may be.

My advice to everyone from here on will definitely be to
stick with mplayer and/or ditch mpv as soon as possible.
And if mpv doesn't compile on the first try, don't waste
your time. All you'll get is more egotistical arguing
from people who couldn't be bothered to write quality software.

Stay away from mpv, or take your chances. Beware.

SSL Support (HTTPS) in mplayer

Hi --

I just spent way too long trying to get
mpv to do what mplayer can do easily.

That is, to install and run properly.

I wanted to install mpv because mplayer
doesn't support SSL. Or at least, not
that I'm aware of. But mpv doesn't run
at all, so I suppose mplayer wins...

Question: is there a way to enable SSL
(HTTPS) streaming in mplayer? If so, how?
And if not, is there some way to make SSL
work, even though it's not "official" yet?

Ubuntu 14.04 mencoder crash

Hello

I wonder if anyone else is seeing mencoder crash on Ubuntu?

I'm really struggling to find any program that can convert, and keep
the quality. ffmpeg makes it all blured.

Cheers, Jonny

MPlayer hangs in slave mode on Windows

I am using r37337 build by Redxii from mplayerwin.sf.net. Exactly the
same build works perfectly when it is being run by SMPlayer.

But I observe this behavior - when I try to run mplayer from cmd.exe
and set -slave switch, mplayer starts, shows video window with first
frame and then hangs (Windows shows "not responding, cursors starts
rotating, etc). I found accidentally that if I press Enter in cmd.exe
console it starts playing until mouse click on video window. Then it
hangs again.I also tried to run mplayer in slave mode from Cygwin
console and it plays without hangs there.

I'm trying to use mplayer in slave mode  for playing videos inside
application I develop and it hangs probably due to same reason.

I tried to run mplayer with same switches as smplayer, to run it from
smplayer directory (in order to make sure it sees same config files) -
still hangs. Looked in smplayer source, did not find something
windows-specific in interaction with mplayer process.

Hangs are reproducible on Windows 7 32bit, Windows XP x64

Any ideas about reasons and how to fix it?

help needed, mplayer repeats audio frames at the end of video

Hi,

I am facing an issue that when audio is slightly shorter than video, mplayer repeats the last audio frames, I
want to avoid this situation but dont know how. it would be ideal if mplayer doesnt repeat the sound at the
end. note that I dont want to alter the videos, the same videos are playing fine with vlc, but my project
needs them to work for mplayer. i tried gl2, diretx, directx3d drivers but it doesnt solve the issue. any
fix? anxiously waiting for the reply.

Regards

shahid

I don't think this command is quite right.

Huh? The parser makes no difference for the order...
Either way, while you need -mc 0 -noskip when you copy video, you
usually still end up with sync issues if you don't re-encode the audio,
as mencoder is really bad at estimating how much data encoded audio
contains.
For your case I think you want "mplayer -dumpstream" anyway though.

Search list, it seems can use mplayer dump to backup DVD content. And,
because MEncoder has been stopped maintaining too long time, if you
need transcode video, try ffmpeg.

Audio/?video out of sync when using -voc copy ?

I bought some DVDs, and feared that they might be scratched, so I wanted to
store the content on hard drive. I did

mencoder  -voc copy -aoc copy dvd:// -o output.avi

then I found that the audio and video are out of sync, the video is too
fast,  by about 10%.

then I did some google search, and this seems to be a common problem, and
many posts point to using some combination of the 3 params:

" -mc 0 -noskip -vf harddup "

I tried all 8 combinations of them, but the results are still the same.
interestingly, if i swap the position of -noskip and -mc 0, the results are
even different!

without params, I can see the error msg "duplicate frame detected" when
mencoder was running. with -mc 0 -noskip param, the error msg is gone, but
my video is still out of sync

thanks
Yang
