MPlayer is a movie player for Linux, Windows and Mac that supports most video files like MP4, MKV, Blu-ray M2TS, DVD, VCD, MPEG, VOB, AVI, OGG/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, FLI, RM, NuppelVideo, YUV4MPEG, FILM, RoQ, PVA files. No need for external video/audio decoders. MEncoder is also included in the MPlayer releases, it's a video and audio converter based on ffmpeg. These are command line tools but several frontend/GUIs are available like SMPlayer. Or just drag and drop your video file on Mplayer.exe to play the video!

Finaly they fixed that bug so I can drop -nofontconfig option in the command line. Besides that an excelent program that produces and read edl files so I can cut the commercials out of my tv captures by making an edl file which I copy into mkvmerge. Keep on the gooed work and thank you for this marvelous piece of software.

I still recommend the PURE (command-line only) Mplayer above any of the available GUIs, if one prefers/needs performance to a (not always) easier-to-use interface. In the beginning, I relied on MPUI, but I had to leave it behind when it became as slow as the ever-bloated SMplayer. Just find some time and patience to study the HUGE documentation ^_^

P.S.: The Redxii builds (unfortunately) do not include the helpful docs folder, BUT you still can get it from Sherpya's builds at Sourceforge or elsewhere.

Another open source player that plays almost anything. Works fine but if you have Windows why bother. There are about 10 different compiled Windows version on the homepage. Each one may have tweaks or the functions you need removed. Also the version numbering system is quite confusing. Used it only because vlc would not play a specific type of audio. Only needed if you have a very unusual file. I would recommend using ffmpeg first if only due to the lower number of compiled versions.

I found this tool to be quite effective in my setup. I use MythTV to record programs and encode them to DVD complaint MPEG2's or XviD AVI's. I have been using it for more than a year consistantly without any problem.

The previous poster's message that it takes hours to compile does not happen on my computer. On my computer it takes only 5-7 minutes to compile.

I like this program.

A decent player IF you can compile it, and that's a huge IF! Too many oddball dependencies, and many of the optional features are not available even with the proper dependencies. Last time I compiled it successfully, was an older version under Fedora Core 2 and with the GUI. It took 9 hours straight. That is not a misprint, and not just the compile time either - half of it was debugging it's cryptic errors. This latest version doesn't seem to want to compile at all - I gave up after 3 hours on FC4 and settled on compiling the commandline-only version. By the way, the current version is not compatible at all under FC5, though I suppose it will eventually be supported - no commandline OR GUI version!

On top of it all, the GUI interface is minimal at best and (at least the older version) doesn't seem to support playlists, or at least making multiple selections.

It's one strong suit is that it works with many codecs - but, supposedly, so do other players.

Personally, I consider MPlayer a last resort to be used only if you can't get one of the other players to work and if you MUST have multimedia capability on Linux.
