I was very interested to see a thread in the Hero section on cross-compiling the excellent linux mplayer application

In this thread, some work has been done to get mplayer to work which may throw some interest to people who are interested in getting mplayer going on the Dream.

I have tried the binary on the Dream and am not getting any sound out but am having most **success** with "-ao pcm:file=/dev/msm_pcm_out -v" halts MPlayer with the line "Increasing filtered audio buffer size from 0 to 65536".

I do get flashing video; which is unwatchable but at least a start.

A Q, what does 'mplayer -ao help' come back with?

Might gives clues about the audio driver to use.

installed mplayer myself in /data and running mplayer gives:

================================================== ========================
Opening audio decoder: [mp3lib] MPEG layer-2, layer-3
AUDIO: 44100 Hz, 2 ch, s16le, 192.0 kbit/13.61% (ratio: 24000->176400)
Selected audio codec: [mp3] afm: mp3lib (mp3lib MPEG layer-2, layer-3)
================================================== ========================
[AO OSS] audio_setup: Can't open audio device /dev/dsp: No such file or directory
Failed to initialize audio driver 'oss'
Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound.
Audio: no sound
Video: no video

also running 'mplayer -ao help' gives:

bash-3.2# /data/mplayer -ao help
Cannot find HOME directory.
MPlayer SVN-r29814-4.4.1 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team
Available audio output drivers:
oss OSS/ioctl audio output
mpegpes DVB audio output
v4l2 V4L2 MPEG Audio Decoder output
null Null audio output
pcm RAW PCM/WAVE file writer audio output

no idea how this can work

The ones available are the ones mplayer was compiled with. You have to change the devices in the mplayer-framebuffer source for video, I guess you have to do the same for the audio, which is a bit more complicated I think. MPlayer is definitely on my ToDo though.
