Ok here is what I am going now.

I already had a folder in /media/internal/video (I also have one named videos, not sure what that is for).

So I copied a file from my PC into the /media/internal/video directory.. it was a *.flv file.

When I first launch MPlayer, I'm getting this error: 'ca.canucksoftware.mplayer is not running'.

When I tap on the OK button to get rid of the error message, I just see a gray colored screen that has a smalll circular (I guess it's WebOS's icon for waiting to update). But that never stops.

Should I be going to the preferences and 'register as file handler'?

I'm trying that right now anyway.

The last time I tried that, it wait icon (that circular symbol) never stopped, until I minimized the app, then I just got the smaller circular icon spinning.

Even though I'm overclocking, both versions of the mplayer (original and the one modded by Rod) played smoothly under same conditions (same overclocking, garbage collected...)

Do a full device restart.

It would be great if you could use the MPlayer to play voice mails on Google Voice. I tried copying the link of one of my voice mails and put it in the "Open URL" option but nothing happened when I clicked the "OK" button. Does MPlayer not support streaming?

I installed 1.01 with preware. No mplayer app in the launcher, even after a restart. Preware doens't list mplayer as installed anywhere. What gives? 2.1 meta-sprint

Sounds like the service was having issues. Try uninstalling, restarting, then reinstalling.

not sure what's the cause of the not-appearing issue. I've seen that myself on my 2.1 pre2 a few times. A reinstall won't usually fix it. Did ya try restarting the device?

Ok, so I am pretty sure the cause for the choppy playback is the lack of the file Rwhitby made for the original mplayer to make it work for UberKernal which can be found in the first post here: http://forums.precentral.net/web-os-...yer-1-0-a.html

I had both version installed on my phone starting from scratch. Both versions had choppy playback. Once I followed the instructions in the link above and placed the file where it was supposed to be, the old version ran smoothly and this version is still choppy. So, If this file can be integrated into THIS version, I think we will be good.

If Jason pulled the one from Chomper's Google Project Hosting page, it would be the same one that Rod used. Rod compiled that file. the first one is an old ver. of Mplayer that Chomper put together. Chomper's Google Project Hosting page has the one that fixed the problem we was having with overclocking.

Thanks Jason. Being able to add sub-folders (Movies, Personal, etc) is awesome. No issues at all on my Pre Plus with UberKernel (with the default mplayer and compcache settings)

I have an original Pre, overclocked to 1GHz with AV8B kernel, and with this package playback is choppy. With the previous version of mplayer with Rod's modification, playback was smooth.

So this section right here...you're saying that this new file that was made is already a part of THIS one?

Quote:
Rwhitby at Webos Internals put together a fix for Mplayer.
This should work with any kernel, overclocked or not.

Must have Mplayer already install on your Pre.

Please test and post your results.

Download;
http://ompldr.org/vNnY0NA/mplayer
"That binary is built on a Ubuntu 10.4.1 LTS 32-bit x86 Linux host, using the
WebOS Internals WIDK (in the packages/media/mplayer directory). Source code for the binary is
available at git.webos-internals.org in the cross-compile.git repository."

Use WebOSQickInstall and Send file to;

/media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/chomper.app.mplayer/

No need to Restart phone.
Please test and post your results.

In the open URL box, the option key changes but can't seem to add any option characters like : / etc.. which makes typing a URL rather tough...

Also, I have an asx file locally which points to a streaming media URL. I can see the file in Mplayer but clicking on it does nothing...wondering if the question above re: streaming is related...

But Jason would know this for sure.

I having a hard time trying to understand the problems you'll have as I don't have any problems with Jason awesome work on this. sorry. So I can only guess on how to fix the problems you're experiencing.

So with that, ( End of rumbling )You can try this

un-zip and
Send "config" to
/media/crypotfs/apps/usr/palm/applications/chomper.app.mplayer/.mplayer/

Please let me know if you noticed any changes to how it plays
Only apply if you're having slow play and/or massive frame drops

Note for me
====================
=
= Removed
# Fix for slow phone.*
framedrop=1
hardframedrop=0
double="yes"
====================
You're running 1.2 GHz right? So its safe to say you are not using UberKernal. I think the problem comes with UberKernal as it did with the version you posted in YOUR mplayer thread. Having that file named "mplayer" that is located in /media/crypotfs/apps/usr/palm/applications/chomper.app.mplayer/ fixed the issue. Before that file was made, it was running just as this new version is now. Which makes me think this file wasnt added.

In this new version that Jason made, the app is located in /media/crypotfs/apps/usr/palm/applications/ca.canucksoftware.mplayer/. In THAT folder, I dont see a file named mplayer like the other one had which means I would think it was compiled differently or something. So simply adding that file that was made to fix the issue to THIS folder wouldnt help.

Im sorry for the long message. I am no developer so please bear with me.

Jason would need to answer that one.
I don't see the Mplayer file in that location.
