You need to rebuild mplayer with either the codecs in the directory
mentioned in the README or specify where they are at. The ffrpza codec
is one that is included with ffmpeg so it doesn't always do as well as
the binary.

It might also help to have a sample file for others to test it with.

Good Luck

Generating film strips

Hi,

i have recently been forced to move to Linux and there are only few
things which I miss. One of them is software for generating film strip /
video previews (media player classic does this very good).

I have tried writing my own bash script using mplayer and imagemagick,
the problem is that the only working way is to save ALL frames thru png
video output. This is not only completely stupid, but also very slow and
requires a lot of disk space.

I have tried calculating the required frames and then using "mplayer
-frames 1 -ss frame -vo png file" and "mplayer -sstep timestep -vo png
file" but the first one creates odd results (artifacts in screens) and
the second one sometimes jumps thru keyframes and doesn't generate the
desired number of frames.

So, is there any way how I can make video preview using mplayer, or is
there any chance that this feature will be added (should be a realy
small peace of code).

Thx for answers

It isn't attached, it was too big.  It is at

What version should I use?

I seem to remember some discussion on this list about using a
particular up-to-date version of mplayer but I don't remember what it
is.  So what should I go get and install?  If it matters, I'm running
Fedora Core 7 with an AMD Athlon 64-bit processor.

Thanks,
Jack

You should install a Subversion client, check out the latest development
source, compile that and install the result.

This is strictly required for submitting bug reports, and is recommended
for the MPlayer project in any case. (Not all projects advise running
the latest development code, and in some cases it may even be a bad
idea, but this one certainly does.)

Is dvdnav separate from mplayer?

I threw out the old version of mplayer from Fedora Core 7 and
downloaded the latest subversion version.  Now dvdnav doesn't even
come close to running (it didn't run correctly before).

[kizoku <at> natsumi ~]$ mplayer  dvdnav://1  -dvd-device  /dev/scd0
-mouse-movements
MPlayer dev-SVN-r24313-4.1.2 (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+ (Family: 15, Model: 47, Stepping: 2)
CPUflags:  MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 1 3DNow2: 1 SSE: 1 SSE2: 1
Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 3DNow 3DNowEx SSE SSE2

Playing dvdnav://1.
No stream found to handle url dvdnav://1

Do I have to do something special in the configure step or download
something else?

Thanks,
Jack

You're in a misunderstanding. I'm compiling it just from the source. I 
follow to the instructions from MinGWHOWTO. And all my questions are related 
just to nasm compilation. Though I saw similar errors in OGG and Vorbis 
sources compilation.

OK, now I have GNU make 3.80. Will seek for 3.79 one.

Thanks.

It wont play in VLC too if thats help.

As for mplayer useing "-vid X" with stream number provided does nothing 
as well.
Strange file with 18 streams inside, sometimes with 100bps differences 
between it.

MediaInfo status if someone care:
